The hotel offers 20 rooms and 10 cottages for visitors travelling to Quebec and Labrador. It serves as a refuge for customers stranded when the ferry does not sail due to bad weather. The restaurant has a limited menu, but the food is excellent.

We were scheduled to take the ferry from St. Barbe to Labrador and decided to stay at the Dockside motel. The motel s hares the building with the ferry office and has a small restaurant. We were told that the electricity would be turned off the next morning at 7:00 am in the whole area so we had to get...

this motel is situated right beside the ferry terminal. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Rooms are clean but are decorated like the 60's.. Nothing wrong with the rooms. There is a restaurant inside and the ferry terminal is joined to the building

We stayed at the Dockside as we were catching the Ferry to Labrador. There didn't seem to be any accessible rooms; there were a half dozen steps up to our room. Other than this, the room (119) was great. There were 2 queen beds and plenty of space in the room. The bathroom was a good size. Everything seemed newly...

Its a motel, period, but clean and well maintained, all the amenities one would expect. We liked it. Nothing is run-down, it is reasonably priced, breakfast is very good. Its right when you get off the ferry, maybe 100 yards.

A great hotel to stay if you want a daytrip to Labrador. The room was big and the wood walls were very nice. Restaurant is convenient before board the ferry for our daytrip to Red Bay Labrador. Ticket pickup just outside hotel door. We left on the first ferry and came back on the last. so we did not have...

Very noisy. Last choice as we missed the last ferry. If we had not been sitting in the truck so long we should have slept there. The bed was ok. A little hard but no drinkable or useable water to brush my teeth. Slept on top of the bed. Not cheap over a $100.00 . Restaurant was good and filling.

The motel is old but well cared for and clean. It also allows dogs. The room was a little crowded - two beds - and the bathroom was tiny. We stayed in room 116 and thus did not have the stairs that others mention. The internet was completely hit or miss. The first not it was awful, the second night...

the room we had was enormous and really comfortable with a blacony looking over the sea. Do not be put off by the looks of the place from the outside. This is a really nice place, esepcially for a town of 75-200 people. My travel companion thought her bed was not freshly made, and called the desk. The person had...
