“Good Motel, nice owners”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2013

In the center of Cheticamp, near to restaurants and laundry and harbor. Clean and quiet place with all the things you need including the view on sunsets. Breakfast including homemade muffins. Owners Swiss people and really nice and friendly.It's really as stated in the other reviews.I'd recommend it to friends.
Schönes Motel(mehr ein kleines Hotel) Zimmer sauber und praktisch eingerichtet. Platz zum draussen sitzen und auf den Hafen schauen. Frühstück gut für kanadische/amerikanische Verhältnisse.

Room Tip: We had room No 3

Merry's has everything you need, if you want clean, simple and cheap! It is within walking distance of just about everything. You may want to drive to the grocery store, as that is a bit of a hike, but otherwise, park your car and enjoy the town on foot.

Excellent location, light breakfast, some rooms have a view, very clean and nice wood floors. $85 for the room was cheaper than two similar motels. Wireless is available. No AC but a nice breeze and a cool night made up for it. They also have a great porch to sit outside and enjoy the scenery.

Lady at front desk was very friendly and welcoming upon arrival.
We were in motel #5 and it was nice and bright, clean and well kept. Bathroom was in great shape and fully stocked, Nice location with a partial view of the water and very quiet.
Extremely clean.
The term "motel" can be really misleading for people (perhaps with negative connotations attached to it) but this property is very well kept and a cute inn-style of accomodations.

While touring the Cabot Trail we stayed 1 night in Cheticamp. We had stayed in Cheticamp about 6 years ago and stayed in Merry's Motel. We were very pleased with the motel then so we opted for it again this trip. Just as happy this time as before. Susan is a great hostess and keeps a spotless motel. The room couldn't have been any cleaner. There were 2 doubles beds, a mini fridge and a small flat screen TV that had a much better channel selection than many of the much pricier hotels we have stayed in. Although the motel was full that night, we never heard a sound. Our room was an end unit that had a water view. Breakfast was included and although light (as advertised) it was great........muffins, fruit, toast and coffee.
This place is a real gem. It is inexpensive, clean, right in the middle of town and well equipped. Who could ask for more!!

We didn't book in advance, we just showed up and they had a room available. The room was simple - two double beds, a desk, a mini fridge, and bathroom. The motel is the absolute cleanest place I have ever stayed in! The breakfast is light - but that is stated in the motel description online, by the information centre, and the motel owners. I had toast, fresh coffee, and tomatoes from their garden. They also had muffins and fruit. We had a nice long chat over breakfast with one of the owners. The bed was comfortable, and they have wooden floors which is much nicer than carpets found in most motels! Plenty of parking, and near by restaurants, grocery stores, pubs, and other shops.

For $70 I am %100 pleased with the motel. I would definitely go back in a heart beat!

Room Tip: We had room 5 and could see the ocean. I think rooms 3 and 4 are blocked from ocean view by the hou...

We stayed here for a night while driving the Cabot Trail. Price was decent (around $70) and we were given room 2 with an "ocean view". We were pleasantly surprised at how clean the room was - the wood floors are much better than carpets you usually find at motels. In fact, Merry's was cleaner than many of the more expensive motels we stayed at during our 10 day roadtrip of the Maritimes. It looks like the rooms were refreshed not too long ago. Breakfast was good (proprietors noted it was a *very light* breakfast) - toast, some fruit, coffee - no frills. Everything in Cheticamp is also within walking distance.
