This place is fairly comfortable, it is very quiet, a nice view on the water. The place needs to be updated. The reception was very warm, and she explain clearly the location of our room. The room was very clean and large. It is a good place to relax after a day's drive.

Nice place to stay and the continental breakfast was average - toast, muffins, fruits and cereal with coffee/tea/juice. Very close to the Cabot Trail (side note, the entrance to the Cabot Trail from this motel takes you from Baddeck to Margaree, so your going from the bottom of the map to the left). Area is very dark at night (no...

Love the geese coming up on the lawn in the evenings. Large rooms, had great space to leave motorcycle gear in room. Great homemade breakfast food. We had a beautiful full moon rising over the lake while there. Easy access to the Cabot Trail and Baddeck.

Location and room was nice - friendly service. The room was clean and the beds were comfy. The stay was very enjoyable and the breakfast was well done as well. I am nit sure I would stay more than one night - not a lot to do in the area

This has been our 6th stay with the Trailsman and as ever, the service received is top notch. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable, we also made good use of the mini fridge, microwave and coffee maker. Waking up to the view of Bras d'Or Lake makes this place a great value for the money. Although breakfast...

I booked this place after reviewing Trip Advisor Reviews on various accommodations in the Baddeck vicinity. Other places in Baddeck were much more expensive, outside our budget, but the Trailsman Motel was the best price we find on short notice with somewhat positive reviews. Yes I noted the negative reviews but my instincts were swayed by the positives. And my...

Great little motel with clan, comfortable rooms and an excellent continental breakfast. Motel is on Hwy 105 close to Baddeck and the Cabot Trail. Didn't hear too much vehicle noise once we settled into our room. Staff excellent and friendly.

We stopped here as the driving rain and dark made driving impossible. It was one of the most expensive hotels I have paid for in a long time ($125 tax in--because I normally use a discount site) but all I wanted was a clean bed. We had our dog and while they have a no pet policy, they were kind...

Picked this property based on price and location, together with reviews in Tripadvisor. It was a good choice. The rooms were clean, comfortable and priced well. The staff were well informed and pleasant in their dealings with me. The included breakfast was served in a pleasant dining room with excellent water views. The location of the hotel was beautiful, set...

DO NOT STAY IN THIS PLACE. 100% BAD. You will regret your choice. The experience was very uncomfortable. The time was very frustrating and stressful. If you just check out the rooms before you pay. You will see what you are dealing with before spending your hard earned money.
