This motel has only 7 or 8 units plus a B&B in the main house.
Was only charged $70 for the night. ( unsure if off season rates or not) and they were dog friendly!!. Place was very clean and looked well kept in the room. Had two double beds and everything we needed- nothing fancy. Rooms aren't huge, but more than enough for a couple.

It suited the charm of the town and we really enjoyed our stay there and would definitely go back again. We loved it.

We spent a night at Merry's Motel and stayed in the B&B (main house) portion. Our room was a great size, with 2 single beds, but that was ok with us (we knew in advance). We very much enjoyed the hospitality here. The only negative aspect was breakfast -- it was the plainest of all places we stayed at on the Cabot Trail. We'd heard about the fantastic muffins, but just missed them!

Cutting our trip to Cape Breton short, due to a Nor'easter that made hiking impossible, we arrived a day early at Merry's Motel. The owner/operator had availability and allowed us to adjust our booking without penalty.
Dining/entertainment advice was bang on and we had quite a good dinner with some excellent entertainment.
The room was clean and adequately furnished. Absolutely no complaints.
Breakfast was somewhat spartan, and could easily be improved with some minor additions. The dining room was quite cold - not sure if it was routinely so, or just the difficulty of heating the old home.

Stayed here the night before our Cabot Trail drive. The B&B was closed for the season; we stayed in a motel room. Newer laminate flooring was a treat. Everything was spotless and, contrary to many older motels, felt new. Price was good; small breakfast of toast, juice, fruit, home made muffins and coffee/tea. We were quite satisfied.

Beautiful drive to this area, especially coming from the North (from Cabot Trail). The room was very nice and clean. The breakfast was small, just muffins, toast and coffee. The price was good and location great if you want to sleep after driving the Cabot Trail.

On our trip to Nova Scotia we stayed for 2 nights in Merry's Motel in Cheticamp. Actually it is a motel and B & B in one. It is very clean, the rooms are nice and you get a free breakfast with home made muffins toast and fruit. It is owned by a Swiss couple and you can talk in English, French or German with Susan Oberli. We really enjoyed sitting around the table in the morning and chatting with all the other travelers. If we go there again, we will definitely choose this place to stay!

Room Tip: We only saw the rooms in the motel, I can't say anything about the rooms in the house - but I am...

This is a very clean, neat, but basic small hotel that would remind you more of a hotel from the 50's. The rooms were spotless, but not fancy. Although all rooms face the road, the town is very small so it was quiet. No hair dryer and no a/c, but not a big deal.

Breakfast is in a common room much like a B&B. It was a basic continental breakfast, toast, jam, apples, bananas, muffins, coffee and tea. Being used to the free breakfast at Hilton or Marriott or at a B&B, this was disappointing. A few small things could be added which would improve it.

The hostess has an edge to her, so if you are expecting a lovely, warm B&B hostess, go elsewhere.
