employees were very friendly and accommodating, the room was excellent and WiFi strength is very good in the room, we had no problems logging into our work accounts and working as we had a family member in the hospital and the location was perfect, less than 2 minutes away from Yarmouth Regional Hospital. Also very close to shops and restaurants....

Very comfortable, clean and quiet. Had some problems with my key cards but the cleaning lady was very helpful and even went to the front desk to have the keys redone. Breakfast was very good and the person responsible was very efficient. Would stay at this hotel again if I'm ever back in Yarmouth.

Great location,great hotel and staff. Stayed only one night for business. Large selection for your breakfast in the morning. Bed was a little hard compared to other BW I have stayed at. Quiet area, good sleep.

The desk staff were exceptionally helpful and courteous. Kudos to the cleaning staff....our room was spotless! We needed help finding a suitable restaurant, and after a conversation with the staff, they recommended a place that fit us to a tee. We would definitely return to this hotel in the future.

This 1950s motel was the worst and higher priced of the Best Western chain we encountered on our whole trip of Nova Scotia. The staff were friendly enough. The room was small, not enough room to put a suitcases. Breakfast was in a side area near the lobby and the food was like flying in a plane, packaged milk, packaged...

This location is perfect for the ferry. I love the hardwood floors and the beds are super comfortable. The breakfast was perfect for a continental breakfast and they also have "to go" breakfast bags. All around great place to stay.

We booked a room at this hotel a few days before we planned to be there and after reading other reviews, requested a ground floor room because they do not have an elevator. We arrived at the hotel around 9:30 PM, after a ferry ride on The Cat from Portland, Maine. The hotel is close to the ferry. However, upon...
