Having stayed in numerous motels across the country, I have to say this is the first double decker I’ve experienced. The lower level has a sofa, arm chair, coffee table, and refrigerator, while the upper level had two beds and the bathroom. The room was clean and comfortable, and while the hotel itself is right off a heavily traveled road,...

Thank you so much for taking the time to share your review with us, our customers' opinions mean the world to us, so we appreciate your feedback. We certainly do offer uniquely styled rooms, they're practically suites (just without the stove) for a standard room price. We are delighted to hear that the rooms lived up to our main focus:...

If you are staying in the "original building" be prepared for heavy musty / mold smell. If you have any allergies to these then bring your remedial drugs to offset. When we told the staff of our allergies we received no options but to try to find another room somewhere else and we were still on the hook to pay...

Thank you for choosing The Coastal Inn - Antigonish, and taking the time to review our accommodations. We are sorry that we were unable to meet your expectations and provide you what you were looking for.

You book one room online on Expedia, then you arrive and are told a satisfactory room is more expensive and give two keys to check to the differences. Trust me, you agree to pay the difference. Light switches are hap hazard. Thermostats difficult to control. Toiletries minimal, bring your own soap. It was clean. It was was fairly quiet.

This is not a fancy motel, its a bit dated but you can see that the owners are not letting it get run down. We were unable to check into our room as they were installing a new carpet. I liked that the carpet was going to be new. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. We chose a...

This Motel is on the side of the main highway but you would not know it in the rooms. If you want even quieter then ask for one of the rooms at the back, However these are more compact. The management and staff were realy helpfull.

Aww this is such an excellent review! We very much appreciate you confirming what we try to explain to the guests often, that the noise of the highway that passes by the motel is really not as bad as you may anticipate. However, they just opened the new highway, so we get incredibly less traffic than before, so it's even...

If you like to read in bed, this room had the best wall lamps. you could change the angle and reach the dimmer/on-off switch without moving. Everything was clean. If you are looking for a spanking new room, this is not it, but it was very serviceable and we were quite comfortable.
