My boyfriend and I went skiing for the day and stayed here on New Years! It was very surprisingly modern inside the rooms! I really enjoyed that the checkout time was flexible since it was New Years day and the complimentary breakfast was great! The owner was very friendly and accommodating. Would recommend to anyone staying in the area!

I travel to Truro quite often and have stayed at other hotels but have now become a convert and will stay here on future trips.. This motel is located quite near exit 13 and is opposite the bus station. The room we had (105) was fairly close to reception and although close to the road , was very quiet.The room...

To start the owners have started doing a real good job renovating an older hotel in Truro. The rooms are well done with modern amenities like usb chargers in the wall sockets for charging your cell phone as well as a nice job renovating and decorating in the reception and breakfast room. The staff were great as well as the...

First we would like to thank you for noticing all the renovations we have done. Also nice to hear that you received great hospitality and enjoyed your breakfast! In addressing your concerns about the logs well back in February we had the birch posts installed in the half wall. They really looked exceptional lots of great comments by our guests...

I have been travelling to Truro the past four years to watch my sons play hockey for the local Junior hockey team. My first couple of trips to Truro's I stayed at couple of larger hotels in the area and after being disappointed with my experiences came across the Willow Bend. I have not even bothered to comparison shop the...

We stayed one night at the Willow Bend during a road trip through the Maritimes, as a result of reviews we'd seen on TripAdvisor. This is a convenient, clean, comfortable motel that has been renovated rather quaintly. My daughters were charmed. A decent breakfast is provided in the morning, in the common breakfast room, to get you on your way....

Nicely renovated rooms and great value. If in Truro again this is the place to stay. Breakfast room is welcoming and renovated too. Rooms are easy to access if you have mobility issues. Too early in year to use pool but it looked nice.

This was one of my favourite motels during my Maritime trip. I wish I could've stayed longer here!! We stopped overnight here on our way to PEI from Cape Breton. It's close to the highway (104/102S) so didn't have far to travel off highway to get to it. Arrived in the evening. Grace was very friendly and helpful and made...

This is an older budget-friendly motel that has been nicely renovated in a modern, on-trend style. It is very clean and comfortable. You can tell the place is well taken care of -- the owners and the staff are justifiably proud. The service was terrific -- very friendly and accommodating. The only drawback is that the motel is situated underneath...

So glad you enjoyed your stay and noticed all the reno's that have been done! The building you have commented on is not a pulp and paper mill it is a feed mill where they make nutritional feed for all types of farm animals. There is no smell as they have filters to avoid this.

For a motel this location is amazing. Felt like I was in a hotel and on top of that it was better than most hotels I stay at. Very clean. Beds are extremely comfortable.
