“Not impressed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 September 2008

Lovely location, but we were not impressed with the room. It was dark and dreary (we stayed in a regular room, not a housekeeping room). My main problem was regarding cleanliness, which is my main criteria in judging lodging. The room had a stale smell and the bathroom had a lot of hair on the floor. When I took the floor mat off the tub and spread it on the floor there was even hair on it, leading me to believe that it wasn't washed but just thrown back over the tub! Also the baseboards had a great deal of dust and dirt on them (I often look there as they are easy for lazy housekeepers to overlook).
There was a good selection in the office for breakfast, but it had to be brought back to the room to eat. Not a big problem, but hard to juggle everything on the small trays, and no toasters for the bagels if you didn't have a housekeeping room.

We found the Seawinds motel in the Doers and Dreamers Guide - the official Nova Scotia guidebook. We were arriving in Yarmouth via the CAT and were looking for a place to stay midway along the Evangeline Trail. We picked Digby.
We were very pleased with the Seawinds. It is located along the Main Street in Digby, but the motel units themselves are not right on the street, so we had no problem with street noise. Our unit was great! It was very spacious and very clean (my number one requirement!). The beds were quite comfortable; the sheets even smelled clean. Each unit comes with a mini-house keeping set-up -- a table with 4 chairs, stove, fridge, microwave, dishes, coffee, etc. I liked the fact that the floors were hardwood -- no threadbare or suspect carpet to contend with, The bathroom was large and definitely clean. Amentities were simple; not fancy at all. My one complaint was that the towels were rather skimpy, both in absorbency and size. Breakfast is included and is set up each morning in the front office (no place to eat there so you bring it back to your unit). There was cereal, yogurt, cheese, crackers, bagels, banana muffins, juice and milk. The staff is friendly and accomodating. One really neat thing is the outdoor patio at the edge of their property overlooking Digby Bay. It was great to just sit there and take in the beauty. We got some spectacular sunrise pictures! I would definitely stay there again and would recommend it to others.
