We flew into Halifax and then drove straight to Baddeck, we arrived just after 10 pm and were on the road to our next destination by 9 am. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. We specifically looked for a motel type spot where we could park directly out our room, which was convenient.

This is a great place to stay while touring Nova Scotia. The motel is convenient to the Cabot Trail, comfortable and clean, and has a fantastic deck for enjoying a spectacular view. We ate breakfast in the restaurant while enjoying the same great view. The food was good and the wait staff was friendly and helpful. The bathroom in the room was small, but perfect for a single or couple. I think their were larger units in some of the ither buildings, but we were comfortable and enjoyed our stay.

The Cabot Trail Motel is the perfect location to stay along the Cabot Trail. Not too far from town and other attractions and it's right off the highway. The motel sits up on a hill on a beautiful piece of property overlooking the bay. Our room had a spectacular view of the water. The beds were comfortable, the room was clean and had all the amenities you need when traveling. I was even able to borrow an ironing board and iron, personally delivered by the owner Cathy Lamey. Cathy treated us like family the minute we met her. She was on site each morning at breakfast and again at dinner, keeping everything running smoothly. The staff were also friendly and attentive. The food was good and the dining room had the same spectacular view of the bay. The Cabot Trail Motel is a wonderful place to stay and budget friendly. I would love to return some day.

Between the clockwise and counter clockwise entrances to Cabot Trail, the Cabot trail motel is a nice place to settle for a while. Not too far from town, the motel has nice rooms with porches overlooking the bay. The staff is exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable about the area attractions. The onsite looks licensed ( serves alcohol) restaurant has good food. Try the fish cakes and beans!

Extremely friendly owner made us feel at home the minute we met her. The rooms are what you expect for a motel...but the beds were extremely comfortable!! We had a beautiful view of the water and it was private and quiet.
The breakfast was delicious and home cooked.

Room tip: Get a room overlooking the water
