“It stinks!”
Reviewed July 29, 2009

The first thing all my family noticed was: ''It stinks''. There was a moisture smell in our room. We let the door opened for a while, but the smell stayed. No TV, not much lights, very small shower. Old decoration, hard mattress, smelly bed sheets. Will never go there again!

Stayed July 2009, traveled with family

WE have stayed at the lighthouse for six years in a row. The people that run the lighthouse and motel are one of the most helpful people you could ever find. The view is fantastic and well worth seeing. We would not return year after year if things were not so great. It has all ways been clean and tidy,peaceful , and relaxing . When you visit and I hope you do,you will have a wonder visit. Mr. and Mrs. Wilson Saint John,N.B.

Stayed here in the summer of 2008. Room was quite comfortable and visited the Lighthouse, which is where I'll definitely stay next time. Room was clean and the staff really knew the island and its history. Beautiful setting.

Stayed here because we got off the late ferry from Isles de Madeleine and had to be on the early morning ferry from Wood Islands to the NS mainland. The first thing we noticed was the decor - straight out of "That 70s Show". Woke up at 5:30 am to find the cold water tap handle in the shower was completely stripped ... therefore no cold water. Attempted to call the office to rectify the problem, but it was closed. Had to use the sink in the main room to get clean. Handles don't strip overnight, this is something that should have been apparent with periodic inspections when the room is cleaned. We won't be back.

  • Liked — it was clean
  • Disliked — No cold water in shower, decor is badly out of date

The place looks cute when you drive up, but that is where that ends. The room where the front desk is, looks like it has not been touched since the 1960's or 70's. The rooms we not nice, the bathroom is so small when you sit down to pee your knees touch the wall. There was no alarm clock , or TV in any room we rented. If you wanted to watch TV you had to go to the front desk area and watch what the family that runs the place is watching. I was lucky to not have spiders in my room, but the other two couples we were with were not as lucky. Take a broom and get rid of some of the spider webs on the deck of the hotel. We tried to sit outside and have some drinks, but we were scared the spiders would eat us. They were huge and everywhere. We made the best of it, but I would have to say I will not stay there again on my travels to PEI.

These rooms are badly in need of remodelling and a good cleaning with bleach followed by a paint job.If you are over 200 lbs.,you will have a problem using the facilities in some of the washrooms.Beware the water temperatures in the shower!These rooms should be no more than $40.00 per night but the price is $80.00! The natural beauty and peacefulness of the area are the only good feature.

The Lighthouse and Beach Motel has new owners. In our 1st year (2016) we replaced the mattresses & pillows in most rooms and replaced the front deck. This winter we demolished the office and the old 16 rooms and are rebuilding 12 new / larger rooms in the same location. Target opening date is June 19th 2017 and we are on schedule! As well, the two kitchenette - 2 bedroom units and the Lighthouse Suite are all being refurnished. So, basically it will be a brand new Motel in 2017. We are looking forward to seeing our returning guests and new guests this summer!! ... more   less
