This was a nice spot to recover from our nightmare vacation, clean rooms nice view, close to the town of new Glasgow, wish we had have spent our whole vacation here rather than the terrible resort about 10 minutes out of town

Stayed one night with my traveling partner. The woman in the office was super friendly and helpful.

The room was clean and the bathroom looked like it had been recently renovated - nice big shower! There was a little fridge and sink, wifi in the room, and comfortable beds. As motels go, it was pretty good. They didn't have ice, but there is a corner store across the street which did have ice and some snacks.

I've stayed at two Dolan properties during my month long ride through the Maritimes and both were clean and well maintained. While from the outside Dolan's Motel might look like any other roadside motel, the rooms are bright with huge windows and tastefully decorated. My room had two large picture windows one of which looked out into the forest. Felt like I was sitting outside.
The beds were comfortable and the bathroom was spotless. The staff is friendly and very helpful. I had a little kitchenette which was very convenient. A/C worked well. WiFi worked well.
Parking was right outside my door which made unloading and loading my motorcycle a breeze.

The location was perfect for us as we were beachcombing on the Northumberland Shore. The room was a fair size with a really poor size bathroom with the only place to hang your clothes/towel was literally falling off the wall. the tub and sink drains were plugged with hair (gross) and the shower handle was broken. The electrical outlet for the microwave and coffee pot was literally falling out of the wall . There was no battery in the smoke detector ( we saw it because it was hanging down right above the beds) there was no toilet brush or plunger. There was also no phone or clock in the room. The beds were clean but the rest of the room including dusting ( I have asthma ) and clean coffee pot or cups for example were not to be found. We checked in early and got our keys however the room wasn't ready so we went for a drive. When we came back to report all this around 8:30 there was no one to be found in the office. Our a/c unit broke the first night and we had a terrible job to get some help, eventually someone came to switch one from another room however it was not fastened in and bugs came in overnight. The second day was worse, the beds were made over dirty sheets ( from the dirty un-swept floor ) 8:30 am no one in office. we went out and came back at 8:45 pm and no one in the office. When we checked out we left a list of things that should be addressed with once again no one in the office. When we called the emergency telephone number that we found it was answered by an elderly lady ( who by the way made it known to us that she was almost 80) she stated that it was only a small business and the lady in the office regularly went home early even though there is supposed to be someone there until 8:30 pm. We travel a lot and we don't mind small rooms for a cheaper price however there is no excuse for dirt or lack of proper communication with motel staff in my opinion.

Friendly staff, very clean and comfortable room. Great shower (nice to find this!). No ice on site, but there is a corner store very close by. Fridge and TV in the room. 10 minutes to the PEI ferry, was perfect for a stay on our way from NS to PEI.
Thank Denise W
