This is a little slice of Heaven on St. Margaret's Bay. The rooms were clean and cozy with modern features. The view is exceptional... a million dollar view for a very reasonable rate. The owners are what make this jewel of a motel a gem. 5 stars for sure.

I just finished reading the negative reviews and somewhat disagree with them. I suppose it does matter which room you choose. I had a king room. It was clean and comfortable. There was a fridge and microwave. Ceramic tile at the entrance. I did have a bit of problem figuring out my TV, but I wasn't there to watch TV...

We spent a night here end of October. The location is excellent, just few steps away from the Ocean and 3km from Peggy's Cove. The owner is amazing and our room was much nicer than expected. Comfortable bed, beautiful décor, microwave, coffee machine, everything you need for a good night.

This a very dated motel. The room we had was the least expensive and was very small. The bathroom was in one closet and the shower was in another closet. The TV is net flicks and is a little slow as the whole hotel is on the same net flicks server...expect some delays. No cable TV here. We had a...

Cute little strip motel close to Peggy's Cove. Price was ok but we stayed in a nicer, similar place in Cheticamp for almost 50$ less so in comparison it seemed a tiny bit steep for what you get, but the room was nicely renovated and clean. The ocean view is beautiful and you can sit on your balcony and enjoy...

The Clifty Cove Motel was wonderful! Although it was cool overnight, we left our window open so we could hear the ocean by far the majority of the night. The room was clean as was the bathroom - it is not a "fancy" place, but it was exactly what we were looking for.

We wanted to explore the Peggy's Cove area as we hadn't been there in many years, and this motel was centrally located so we could visit a variety of places. It had all the necessary amenities and best of all, had a balcony with a view of the water.

We loved the location of this motel. It was clean and the owner was very friendly. We had a little problem getting our hot water to work properly for the shower but it wasn't a big deal. I would definitely go back!

"Clifty Cove Motel is a wonderful quiet home away from home. Janmilla was a gracious hostess, doing whatever she could to make our stay as comfortable as possible. The rooms are clean and well appointed, with decks right on the sea. If you want a wonderful place to stay, away from the crowds of Peggy’s Cove, this is the place...

Hosts were very courteous and eager to help. I found the rooms to be of good size and clean. The view is spectacular from the balcony and located within a few minutes from the Swissair Flight 111 Memorial and Peggy's Cove lighthouse. We are planning on staying there again next summer. A bit pricey even in the off season but...
