Reviewed June 15, 2008

Our experience with the Cabot Trail Motel was less than wonderful. First - the property looks nothing like the pictures - they've chosen to take a picture of one brand new unit they have, however the majority of the units are old and delapatated-looking. Also - it's a full 5 minute drive outside Baddeck. Not really a great location. We went into the office to check in, and the woman was really not very pleasant. She had no idea what rate we were supposed to pay and wanted us to tell her what we were quoted. She essentially took our money, gave us our keys and disappeared. We were traveling as two couples who wanted separate rooms, but naturally were hoping to be close to one another. Rather, they had 8 rooms in between us. The rooms themselves had a unpleasant smell, but things were somewhat clean. The real "fun" came that evening - when trying to fall asleep, we were woken up by the loudest snoring ever. Now, I realise this is not the hotel's fault - but the fact that the walls were so paper thin that we could actually feel the vibration of the person in the next room snoring through the wall can only indicate to me that the walls were ridiculously thin. To be fair - we requested to be moved to a new room, and we were moved, however I can only venture a guess as to what might have happened if the hotel was more full. In any case, checking out the next day was again quick but unfriendly - the lady at the office just sort of looked at us, and I said "I'm checking out" and she asked "you mean just returning your keys?" to which I replied yes, put them down, she grabbed them and walked away. Moral of the story - pay a few bucks extra and stay IN Baddeck - there are some lovely looking hotels, and this isn't worth the money.
