Booked the Clifty Cove based on Trip Adviser reviews. After staying there I would say that many reviewers expectations were far different than mine. The Clifty Cove Motel is very basic. When people write about their "private deck" understand that this is an exaggeration of the truth. Half of the 12 rooms have a 4'x4' little deck that is right...

My husband and I booked this place months ago. What a great place to stay. The owners were awesome. Our room was a 5 star. The view from our balcony was beautiful. Sat down by the rocks. Very quiet and peaceful. Three minute drive to Peggys Cove. Restaurants close by. We will definitely stay here again.

We made a panic, last minute booking to relax before heading home after busy holiday. Four days at the very clean, and friendly, family run Clifty Cove Motel was the prize. There was no air conditioning except for the ocean breeze that worked just fine and smelled great.

We spent Natal Day weekend at the Clifty Cove Motel. It was gorgeous weather. The rooms have been remodeled recently and are beautiful. The bed was very comfortable. The new showers were lovely. But the best part was the view. The granite rocks over looking the ocean were just gorgeous. With two Adirondack chairs sitting on the rocks it was...

Amazing location, incredibly sweet family/owners, rooms are very clean and updated, minutes away from grocery store/liquor store/ice cream shop. This motel is RIGHT on the ocean, with picnic table and chairs on the rocks to sit and enjoy the breeze and sunsets. Very well kept. Book ahead, however. There are limited accommodations in this area, so if you are planning...

This is your quintessential motor inn -- a comfy/cozy sleeping spot with a million dollar view! This is a family-run motel and the owners are lovely; friendly and accommodating. We thoroughly enjoyed our recent stay at the Clifty Cove Motel.. our only disappointment was only staying one night! Would absolutely stay here again.. highly recommend!

Other than a million dollar view, I have to wonder if these other reviewers are talking about the same place!! Our room was small and musty and certainly not renovated, There was no air conditioning, just a shaky ceiling fan that sounded like it was going to fall any minute. There were no basic amenities...not even a box of tissues...

Million Dollar View! The view from my private balcony was spectacular! Rooms were newly renovated, spacious, clean and well situated. Owner was funny and knowledgeable of the area. Price point was fine given the size and comfortability of the room. Will DEFINITELY return and recommend to family and friends who are visiting Nova Scotia.

We had a great time here. It is clean, well maintained, friendly. There are beautiful views off the ocean side balcony. You can tell that the owners care about the place. Would love to stay again someday.
