Beautiful view, very quiet, good sleep - just what you need at the end of the ups and downs of the beautiful Highlands of Cape Breton. My mistake reserving a room with two beds - they were twin - know better next time.

Hotel's Favourite
This was located in the heart of Cape Breton National Park. It was close to many trails and various views of the ocean. Our cabin was not fancy, but served us quite well. There were restaurants in the area to eat, but only 2 available for breakfast. Both were good, though

Absolute garbage. Out of touch and misleading listing. All reviews with one star on this website are very consistent with my own experience and it looks like that musty smell in their cottages has gotten worse as everyone I asked confirmed. Also there is a reason why this property doesnt post real pictures from their interior. Its because they have very little to offer you. Not even the warm welcome you see around on other properties. Check with other travellers before you book.

Response from Sea Breeze, General Manager at Sea Breeze Cottages and Motel
Responded Sep 6, 2023
All of our photos posted here are REAL pictures from both interior and exterior of our property. It is sad that you are not telling the truth....... We do not have 24 hours front desk, you must have arrived after our office was closed, that was why we prepared self-check in for you. We welcome our guests till 7:00PM every day. You are free to like or dislike a property that you stayed, but you'd better show some respects to the facts.

Unfortunately our flight from Boston was canceled due to bad weather forcing us to cancel our 4 day 2 couples trip. Seabreeze refused to reimburse us with 24 hour notice...they also rebooked the room and successfully doubled their room price on two rooms that night. They refused to connect me with montrel owner. We were successful in gaining reimbursement for hotel the night our flight ocurred ( kudos to Glengarry best western in truro)...be careful if you book this hotel- they don't know how to do the right thing!

Response from Sea Breeze, General Manager at Sea Breeze Cottages and Motel
Responded Sep 5, 2023
As we explained in the email, we were sorry to know that your trip was interrupted by the airline. But we have 48 hours cancellation policy. You can not push us to take the risk of anything happening to your trip. Usually, travel insurance helps. All hotels are fully booked in Ingonish these days. It was too late for us to get new bookings when we were notified that you could not come. You found our websites showed no availability that night because your bookings were still there at the moment, and we had to keep the rooms for you all the time before they were really cancelled. Actually, it had nothing to do with how our rooms were booked. We just followed our policy. That's all! All hotels have their own policy and have the right to deal with their bookings due to different circumstances. We hope you could understand!

We booked this place last minute. Rented a 2 bedroom cottage with an ocean view. The cabin is extremely musty. Tons of bugs in the bathroom. Going to spend the rest of my vacation in Nova Scotia wondering what might've crawled into my luggage. Plan ahead and book somewhere newer or better maintained. If your in a pinch, it's a roof over your head. Only 2 shower towels for a 4 person cabin. Be sure to go for dinner early as everything here closes at 19:30.

If you happened to see some bugs, that was normal because you were in the woods. The extra towels are in the drawer of the dresser in your bedroom, we placed several labels reminding it in the room. If you need more towels, you could always call our phone number or ring the video doorbell, we would always be happy to help.

On an itinerary-free girls’ trip and decided to ride the Cabot Trail. We made last- minute reservations by phone and got a small but comfortable and very clean room. The view from the room was spectacular and the check-in and checkout process was super easy. Parking spots are designated. Only issue: Credit card was charged the quoted CA$ price in USD. Haven’t resolved that yet but we’re still road-tripping and will figure it out when we get home in a few days.

Of the many places we stayed on our 17 day vacation this property was the worst value for the money. The personal contact and service is non existent. The self serve key pick up and return is strange. The quality and condition of the unit was way outdated and cheap. This property overall is in need of some serious updating. AC units that had been installed were sealed with tape on the exterior of the units. The sheet stating the check out policy clearly indicated harsh fees for late check outs up to the full price of the fee. Way overpriced for what it offers. We are not picky travellers but this place felt like we had been ripped off. Definitely would not recommend it to anyone. If you see it, keep driving!

Be sure to check reviews. Good if you are looking for cheap accommodations. Needs a complete overhaul. Rooms are dated. Warped floors, bedding smells, door does not hang right. Good view. Water pressure is low, bathroom needs updating.

This place is in need of refurbishing and replumbing. The motel room in front was tiny and was not cleaned to a high standard. The sink was plugged and no one could come and fix it. Keep in mind that Ingonish is a tiny community with no real town. The staff was helpful when they could be.

This motel offers bare minimum accommodation; poor hospitality and unsafe wiring. Unit was very small. Jumble of extension cords and power bars. Right on main highway, very noisy. I’d give this place a miss.
