I booked 2 queen rooms through booking.com with confirmation of queen beds with a mini-frig in each room. Had booked 2 nights but had to cancel one night as we were delayed on our trip & would not be able to get there for the first night. Booking.com had to make the cancellation for me, as that is the way...

Great, except the towels were really rough and the mini-fridge was noisy. Great pool, staff, and breakfast! The owner was super kind! The shower was also very nice. Very clean. Short drive to restaurants and some shopping.

The motel was all right. It was clean but a bit dated. It needs some new paint and definitely some new towels. They were definitely past their best before date. There was a breakfast but we were told that it was not included in our internet price. We were happy to stay here, though, because it was close to Baddeck...

I stayed for three nights. The motel has a stunning view of Whycocomagh Bay and is conveniently located near Baddeck which makes access to dining easy. My room was comfortable and spacious. I had a Queen bed, desk, two comfy chairs, a fridge, coffee maker and TV. Everything was clean and the bed was comfy. Breakfast is served in a...

The room was clean. Folks wanting to stay here must arrive before 5 pm or they will give away your booked room. I have never seen the like in all my travels. We booked a room with a queen bed and a twin for three people. When I arrived the lad on the desk told me he had just given...

The bath tub mat was old, yellow and cracked, it is something that you would put in the garbage, not keep it. I did not get a shower. The cleaning was not very good. Bed was not comfortable, no operable windows and due to the smell it was a must. No fridge, no microwave, no accent table, old TV on...

Room I got was in real bad shape. Moldy/musty smell was overwhelming and although I do not have any breathing problems (that I know of), I was coughing the entire night. Bathroom needs a complete gut job, some mold in the shower. Mattress was unbearably uncomfortable. The price being charged for the room, is twice what the room is worth....

Forced to make a snap reservation during busy Celtic Colours. Overpriced ($140) for what it is, which is a 70's motel with little updates. This would be fine, old doesn't bother me, smells do! Very musty smell, beyond actually. No windows that open. Somebody please give the owners of this place brochures on central air exchangers. Unless you're coming out...

This property is in a great central location in Cape Breton. We explored the Alexander Graham Bell Historic Site upon arrival, Sydney & Louisbourg one day, & the Cabot Trail the next. The owner/operator was in his first season & worked very hard to meet our needs. Our room was spacious, including the bathroom, & included a fridge. It also...

Grossly overpriced for the value. Moldy mattresses and pillows, dark gray dirty towels that we were afraid to use them. It was the worst experience during our vacation in Nova Scotia. Please, stay away from this motel if you can.
