We knew from other reviews that this was a basic place. The prices are good, so what can you expect? We got a so-called housekeeping unit which was converted into 3 large rooms and a "kitchenette". That translates into a hotplate, 2 tiny pots, and get this, a bar sink, so the pots or the water bottles can't fit under...

Room was clean, reception was friendly. Many things required fixing. Deadbolt didn't lock, many light bulbs burnt out, shower was barely a trickle. Would have taken an excessively long time to fill a bathtub. Mattress and pillows were hard. Walls were very thin and could easily hear or neighbors. But, the room was clean.

My wife and I overnight while in transit through the Cabot Trail. We booked fairly last-minute so we have limited availability from most places nearby and booked the Riverview Inn for our accommodation that night. As other reviewers have said, you get what you pay for. We were not expecting too much in the way of updated furniture and modern...

Arrived with confirmation to be told it wasn't available, Sent to a cabin that smelled and the bed hadn't even been made. Horrible rude owner. No apology for confirmed room not available. Told the beds would be made and it was that or we could have our money back. We left after making sure he cancelled our charge card receipt...

stayed at this place one night, and you get what they advertise. the end basically, it's a not BS place, not far from town and a beach, close to a store (also liquor store). has an outdoor pool, selection of rooms (some better than others) but it's cheap compared to most. no food available on premises, privacy as it's a...

We stayed at this motel because of the fairly good Tripadvisor reviews and we regret it. The room and hotel were very dated (think Bates Motel), and it was the worst sleep I've had in a motel in recent memory. The mattress springs were digging into my ribs all night. Without an air conditioner, and high humidity, we relied on...

First of all I think you don't have a lot of experience with hotels. What do you expect? Paying $ 69.- + Tax in high season and want to have a 5 star experience? Compare our rooms to other facilities. We do offer various type of rooms: Our cheap budget rooms with or without AC, our standard rooms with or...

This is a budget kind of Inn, there's no breakfast. We didn't have much expectation but it turned out to be quite a pleasant stay for the money we paid for. Room was spacious and clean, all things functional. Free WIFI, sometimes didn't work but mostly can connect.

The hotel is located right at the entrance to the Cabot trail! Stayed in one of the two-bedroom suites (which is actually a house with a tiny kitchen space, a nice living room with a fire place, two bedrooms each with their own attached bathrooms). Beautiful views all around and great value for the money spent. We also enjoyed playing...

The room was very clean. The bed was comfortable. The property is run down with many features not functional. The name of the property is riverview, but there is certainly no beautiful view from your room in any direction.

On a recent motorcycle trip through Canada I spent an night at the Margaree Riverview Inn. It was the best night's sleep that I've had on the trip. The inn is back away from the road and gloriously quiet. Because both the front door window and rear window are screened, there was a fine cross breeze that, combined with the...
