    The rooms were infested with flies and moths. Paint and furniture needed updating. Beautiful view of the water from the balconies could have been had for free while we stayed somewhere nicer. This location is more like a camp site than a motel.More

    We stayed one night while visiting and exploring the Cabot Trail. Perfect location. Not too far away. A couple stores and gas station just down the road. Room was very clean and beds were comfortable.

    The Manager is very friendly and welcoming, sharing information on the motel and local places to eat. The room was comfortable and spotlessly clean (although a little dated), and I appreciated having a fridge, microwave and kettle, and especially an efficient, and quiet air conditioner....More
