“Nice and Convinient in Port Hawkesbury”
Reviewed November 5, 2012

Nice small size hotel, well maintained.

The rooms are decent sized and well equipped with LCD TV etc. Not that not all windows will open. Bathroom is kind of old decor but everything worked in the room.

The Gym is old and very out of date, the treadmills were way past their due date, there are a lot of equipment in a tight space, so you have to watch where you go.

The hotel restaurant serves good food and good service.

There are not a lot of choice for hotels, but this hotel is not a bad choice.

Room Tip: Book a room with a balcony, if you need to open a door/window

Travelling without reservations is risky but this place ranked well even though got last room (handicapped one). Thanks Elaine.
Rates 3.5 stars as fairly new and well maintained. Nice place to wine and dine too at Grill on the patio. I would go back. Great relaxing spot after Cabot trail.

We stayed here just one night. The pictures are better than the hotel. It is outdated, but nice. The room was large but a little musty. We thought it was a little overpriced for what you got, but it was a nice stay. Probably would stay somewhere else next time.

Thank you for your comments. We appreciate honest responses as they help us to improve. We are sorry to hear that given the opportunity you would not stay with us again. We have been renovating but unfortunatly not all rooms have been updated completely. If you do decide to stay with us again I would recomend trying one our premiere or signiture rooms, which have been completely renovated. Once again thank you for your comments.

We recently stayed at the Maritime Inn for the first time. The hotel is conveniently located on the main street, close to many of the shops/restaurants/activities. We had booked the 2 bedroom suite, and were thoroughly impressed. The beds were very comfortable, and the suite was very modern/clean. The suite has 2 actual bedrooms (with doors that close), a bathroom, a livingroom, and a great kitchenette. The kitchenette has an actual table/chairs, full sized fridge (not a bar fridge), microwave, kitchen sink, counter space, cupboards, and dishes/cutlery. The suite was a fantastic room for families.

We didn't eat at the restaurant(s), but the kids thoroughly enjoyed the indoor pools. There is a larger pool (entry depth 3 feet, gradually gets deeper), but there was also a separate toddler pool that was only 18 inches or so deep.

We would definitely book the 2 bedroom suite again.

Port Hawkesbury is a small town just off the causeway in Cape Breton, NS. Considering it's a small town, it has a number of hotel/motels in town. The maritime is an older property, that needs some TLC but it was not horrible. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable but the furnishings and TV are outdated. There is a pool with a sauna and a nice size gym onsite. There are 2 restaurants, one used for breakfast and lunch, and the Miller tap and grill for dinner. My first experience at the Tap was not great but the service I got from Andrea on my send visit was fantastic. Considering the limited options, I will return to this hotel. For people travelling on vacation, I would recommend travelling further up the road to Baddeck, I saw some beautiful places to stay up there.

Room Tip: There is no Elevator, but they have rooms on the 1st and 2nd floor that exit to the parking lot.

We recently stayed at this hotel. It was a decent price considering how big the room was. It was well furnished, quiet, clean, comfy beds. The location is excellent; it’s near gas stations, fast food places, food stores, drug stores – all in walking distance too! The staff was friendly and helpful.
Overall we don’t have any complaints about this hotel and would recommend it to anyone spending the night in Port Hawkesbury.

Stayed here before driving the Cabot Trail, the room was very clean, well furnished and great linens. We didn't eat at the hotel and were disappointed breakfast wasn't included but all in all a reliable hotel with friendly staff.
