What a wonderful return visit we had to the Sunshine Inn in Parrsboro.

Last year friends and us stayed here for a few days. It was just like being at home, comfortable, clean and everyone were very friendly. So that met that a return visit was in order.

Breakfast were just like I remembered and again the staff and owner were there to please us.

Back again in 2013 for sure!!

This was a clean and comfy cottage with great service. The kitchenette helped make the place very affordable for the weekend trip. Would definitely stay here again whenever I am in the area.

When you come to a little, old fashioned motel on the side of the road, do you often take pause and wonder what you may see inside. Worn out bedding,old curtains, dust, an old coiled spring mattress.? Well not here at the sunshine Inn. You will find it clean as a whistle,freshly painted, comfortable beds, new bedding,a small fridge and microwave.Everything you need.
Not only that but be sure to have blueberry pancakes with real maple syrup for breakfast. You'll be glad you stopped and spent the night.

Would recommend this place to everyone! I don't think we have stayed in a place that was so clean. We ate breakfast here and it was delicious. Prices were good for the food. For the 3 of us to eat it cost us under $20. It was quiet and peaceful and had everything you could want in a motel. We will be back!

The Sunshine Inn is a motel that make you feel at home. We are bikers, motor bikers, and when we got off our bikes and met the staff at the Inn we felt right at home. They were very helpful when we asked about the tides and area. At breakfast, which were unbelievable, we received a Nova Scotia pin for our coats and a little Nova Scotia flag. Found out this is a practice that they have to make you feel welcome to Nova Scotia. Great idea, the kids at the other table loved it also.
The rooms were bright and very clean and welcoming.
We liked it so much that when we were riding back from Cape Breton on our way home to Ontario, we stayed there two more nights.
Thank you so much for making our trip the trip to remember.

We spent two nights here with our 8 and 11 year old kids. The room was exceptionally well-maintained, and as someone else said, immaculately clean. However, it was definitely a motel room--space for the beds and not much else. Even though they were full, we found it very quiet--more a function of the guests they attract (we were able to hear a little chat when people were coming and going, but the other guests were considerate and not noisy), but however I get an undisturbed sleep, I appreciate it. Tv didn't get a bunch of channels, and while I did get a weak wifi signal, I couldn't test it out as I hadn't asked for the network key. (And there was no in-room phone to call the office). Bath towels were good, but hand towels were virtually threadbare.

For us, the most unsastisfactory part was the a la carte breakfast. Our table for four was barely big enough for two, which was a bad start. The food was very generous, and my omelette was quite tasty. However, there were no small/cheaper options. My 8 year old ate one of the four huge pancakes she received (about $7 I believe), and my 11 year old only got half way through his 3 slices of french toast, yummy as it was. Add another $2 each for their milk (tea/coffee included but not cold drinks) and we paid over $40 for a breakfast that only got half eaten. Not very family friendly. If I went again I'd ask if we could split two breakfasts, and order some extra toast on the side. But a good host, in my opinion, would have warned us the portions were huge for children, and offered up front to split an order. Oh, and it's cash-only for breakfast.

Most of the other guests seemed to be adult couples, and had that been our situation, the size of the room (small) and the size of the breakfast (large) probably would've been fine. I wouldn't recommend it for families, though honestly, it doesn't look like there's much better to choose from in the area.
