Stayed here for one night while driving the Cabot Trail. Room was small, but clean. Beds were comfortable. Bathroom was tiny with a shower stall. A breakfast of toast and muffins was included. The owner recommended a whale watching tour to us that was fantastic--we saw a dozen whales, and it was the highlight of our vacation. There are several...

I was travelling on the Cabot Trail with my cousin and 2 aunts in July-August of 2012. We started on the east side of the trail and made our way around to Cheticamp for the night. We had booked a room at Merry's a few days prior and were lucky to have gotten it as nothing else was available for...

I was delighted to stay in such a cozy, well-run establishment. I cannot speak for the motel, but stayed in the Bed and Breakfast room. The price was $50 which included a typical European-style continental breakfast of a muffin, coffee and fruit. The owners, being from Switzerland, made me feel as if I was back in Europe. The bed was...

Stayed here on day 3 of our 4-day cycle of the Cabot Trail, our room was very basic but impeccably clean with a small fridge; no A/C but a fan and windows front and back offering good ventilation; walking distance to a few good spots to eat. Susan was friendly and helpful and offered to put our bikes in the...

We stayed in the apartment. There is a small kitchenette and tv room on the main floor and 2 double beds and a cot on the second floor. Bed was comfortable but watch your head on the sloped ceiling ( I am only 5"4 and smacked my head twice). Breakfast is light but we were told in advance. Overall, it...

The room was clean . No air conditioning but the windows opened to let in the ocean breeze, and there was an electric fan. Even in the heat wave, it was more than comfortable. The wood floors were swept clean, much nicer than carpet. Beds were comfortable, and TV had satellite. The only downside was the breakfast- mostly carbs. But...

Location is the best thing about this hotel but I found the overall experience a little disappointing. The price for a motel room was ok, bed was comfy, but considering the minimal breakfast (which didn't bother me at all except comparable places have much better breakfast included) and tiny bathroom I wasn't sure it was worth the extra money compared...

This is a small no-frills motel on the main street of Cheticamp. There was a small fridge in the room, which was clean and comfortable but very small. It is pet friendly.

I just can't believe that we stayed here for only $65 per night! This motel is located in downtown Cheticamp, close to all the restaurants, whale watching tours, boardwalk, etc. The whole property was spotless, including the spacious room and modern bathroom. The beds were very comfortable, and the room had large windows that opened for a good breeze. Our...

clean motel units located in the very centre part of cheticamp village. you get a light breakfast with muffins, toasts and coffee. the owners speak english, german & french. if you are going to take the Cabot Trial clockwise, it is a good tip - you have only 8 min drive to the gate of the National Park, so you...
