We enjoyed our two-night stay here with a view of the sunset right outside our room. The kitchenette was sparsely supplied but had all we needed to cook a couple of meals with the groceries we brought. Be sure to bring shampoo/conditioner as none is provided. Great proximity to gorgeous Meat Cove.

This is the second time we have stayed here and still enjoy it. The rooms are spacious and spotlessly clean. The views across the bay are wonderful. Sunsets to amaze you.

After seeing the photos of the view from this motel, I phoned the owners directly to book 4 nights. The view is worth every penny paid. This is a lovely, quiet, extremely clean 5 unit motel owned and cared for by a hard working couple who go out of their way to provide a great experience for visitors. A fresh...

We were looking for a room in Ingonish but it was all booked up so the nice lady at the skyline referred us to this hotel. We are glad she did! Exactly what we were looking for, nothing fancy but clean,comfortable, ocean views (and sounds) and affordable!

This is a nice place in a lovely setting. One is far above the water. We were there in late September, arrived as sun set. There was no place to eat, and no information in the cabin as to where we could find a restaurant or grocery store. This meant we had to drive many miles to a little grocery...

Hi Burton's Motel ...we have a coop store 5 mins from the motel ..closes at 6 and it is listed in the registry in the room. I visit many motel and I have never seen paper towel in a room. I think this person is a Keltic Lodge ..Ingonish kind of person. Thanks and have a great day.

This motel has cute accommodations with your own little kitchenette, mini living room space. My boyfriend and I stayed here, and we found the rooms were kept very clean, and the view is just incredible. It is at the Northern tip of the island, and so close to the Oshan Whale tour, which was also really fun. There are a...

If you're looking for the Ritz, move along. If you're looking for a very decent, simple place in a beautiful remote setting then look no further. The building faces the wrong way to see the great views the property affords, but it does give you an awesome harbor and valley view. And their lawn chairs and hiking trail provide amazing...

I have stayed at Burton's too many times to remember since it opened in 1995 and it is getting better with age. The view, as many have said, is incomparable. All five rooms have recently been renovated - new floors, refrigerators, and satellite TV has replaced the former VHS/TV combination. But you really won't be watching TV, given the gorgeous...

12 miles off the Cabot Trail. Very north tip of the Cape. Clean, and rooms were fine. No A/C but we didn't need it. Nice views. Chairs outside to see the sunset or sunrise. $125C with tax. 5 rooms total. Mel (GM) was always there, available, and helpful. Serves coffee in the morning but no breakfast. Nearest eatery for breakfast...
