I stayed at the Whale Watch Motel on Campobello Island NB for 5 days this past July. I was welcomed upon arrival and made to feel immediately at home. Anything I needed was immediately provided upon my request,(cooking utensils, hotplate, or anything I might need that was not already in my room) My room was very clean and comfortable with very minimal noise during my stay. My overall experience was very positive and I would recommend staying at Whale Watch Motel to anyone visiting Campobello Island who's looking for a very affordable, comfortable place to stay!

We stayed here a few days ago in late August, 2022. We had room #8 and it was spotless & had wood (like) floors so no nasty rugs. The entire room was freshly painted, had a comfortable bed, dining table, refrigerator, coffee maker, microwave, dishes and a shared balcony area (not seaside though). You can see the room online. I would definitely stay here again. The only reason some might not give 5 stars is that the back decking needs painting though that did not bother me so I stuck with the 5 stars.

Room Tip: Try room 8 first so you know you have one of the renovated rooms (or ask for a renovated room).

This was our first whole year and thanks to all you wonderful guest we hope to update the motel even more. We run out of time for paintingthe back deck.... Glad you loved the room. There is also another updated room upstairs #6 with two queen beds. Thanks for staying with us and writing a review. Appreciate it!

We stayed for Saturday evening, due to depart on Sunday. We had Room #4, bottom floor, end room. Pull up to patio doors, very convenient. Very clean. Great beds. Crisp white sheets and new duvets.Multiple choice of pillows. Smart TV/Wifi. Newly refurbished bedrooms. Mini fridge stocked with water which was a great touch. Great quiet nights sleep. The rooms are equipped with a picnic basket of utensils/dishware which we found most helpful for impromptu meals. However.....there were no ferry crossings (due to turbulent weather) on Sunday so we stayed an extra night. Because we had checked out already Ashley gave us the room next door #3. which was equally spotless. Further delays with the ferry had us anxious as to when we would be leaving, she allowed us to stay in the room on Monday until the ferry service confirmed it was up and running (despite check out normally being 11am). All in all, a great weekend for us, due to the hospitality of the new owners of CWWM.

It is my 3rd visit. With a new Admin comes great changes: new floors, clean furniture, good bed, refreshed paint. Loved my 2 days - one night on the Green Jewel of the NB Isles. Missed a couch or larger chair in the room, to relax. No box of tissue. What's sticking is the night's calmness and silence. There are no views of the water, the whales, or the bay. No cable TV, just free movie TV. Room highly recommended!

We slept very well here the one night we were on Campobello. Ashley was very nice and helpful. The room itself (room 8) was clean and freshly painted, and the owner had clearly made efforts to make it welcoming and homey. It’s nothing fancy but a great value for visiting the island.

I stayed at the Whale Watch hotel June of 2022. The room was comfortable, bed was good, and the furniture was nice (e.g., two chairs and a table, wood nightstand). The decor was what one expects an ocean island or coast (e.g., ceiling trim painted with whales and sailboats). Delightful. Perfect for someone like me who does not live on the island. I will stay here on my next visit to Campobello in 2023.

Everyone should try to visit Campobello Island at some point in their lives given its important place in American history and in the relationship between Canada and the US. When you go, I highly recommend the Whale Watch Motel. We found the room extremely clean and had the best towels on any place we stayed in a two-week trip to the Maritimes. (And we stayed at much more expensive places!)

The owners really care about their guests. You'll first experience this when we get a very comprehensive confirmation of your reservation in which they share so much info on Campobello. When you arrive, they'll offer helpful advice on how to get the most out of your visit to the island. In the room, you'll find a number of thoughtful touches to make your stay enjoyable...bowls for cereal or snacks, plasticware, cups...and a refrigerator and microwave.

We have nothing to complain about and that may cause you to wonder why 4 stars and not 5 stars. We agonized over that but felt a 5 star rating might raise expectations that the property would not meet. However, for a well-located, clean, and well-equipped room with two delightful and helpful owners in the front office (and on site), this is your place.

Be sure to recognize three things in a visit to Campobello:

1. New Brunswick is one-hour ahead of Eastern time....good to know if you want to eat on Campobello the day you arrive.

2. Mobile phones will bounce off both US and Canadian towers. So, if you don't have an international plan, you may find your phone roaming and you'll be paying some big roaming charges.

3. There are no gas stations on the Island. Be sure to fill up in Maine or in New Brunswick.

This small place is not your usual roadside motel. It has many features that one would expect to find in an inn or bed and breakfast. The rooms are quiet, spacious and uniquely decorated in a nautical theme. There are two doors, front and back so you can get a great cross breeze . One can sit outside sipping the amazing coffee that is provided or sit outside the room and enjoy the atmosphere. Rooms are extremely clean and towels are soft and plentiful. Restaurants are scarce on this island but there is a fridge and microwave provided so one could easily keep small supplies of food on hand. There is a small Grocery across the street you could even walk to. The owners, Jim and Fran are extremely friendly and helpful. It is almost like visiting someone in his/her own home. I highly recommend this motel if you are visiting Campobello Island.

This small facility is not your usual roadside motel. It has many features that one would expect to find in an inn or bed and breakfast. The rooms are quiet, spacious and uniquely decorated in a nautical theme. There are two doors, front and back, leading to porches downstairs or balconies on the second floor. One can sit outside sipping the amazing coffee that is provided and watch hummingbirds flitting around feeders and hanging baskets and listen to windchimes. Rooms are extremely clean and towels are soft and plentiful. Restaurants are scarce on this island but there is a fridge and microwave provided so one could easily keep small supplies of food on hand. The owners are extremely friendly and helpful and I agree with a previous reviewer, that it is like visiting someone in his/her own home. I highly recommend this motel if you are visiting Campobello Island for any reason.
