“Clean, Comfy ... Truly Enjoyable”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 May 2011

Very occommodating proprietors, good location for restaurants as well as a great view of the tidal river. You wouldn't be sorry making this choice for a great nights sleep.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2010

We were pleasantly surprised when we checked into Tidal Bore Inn. The price was great, the view was magnificant, and the rooms were very clean and spacious. We had looked at The Palliser Motel,whose prices were much higher, but the rooms were extremely small and a little dingy. And even though The Tidal Bore Inn was cheap, it still had wireless internet ( an added bonus!).

This inn has an amazing view of the tidal bore.
Very comfortable beds, clean rooms and friendly service.
We would recommend this inn to anyone who is looking for a good nights sleep for a decent price.
It does not have air conditioning, however there is a fan and a large window that opens.

DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL!
Along with the rudest receptionist I have ever encountered, there are several other reasons to avoid this hotel.
1. 69.99 a night for this hotel is highway robbery. AT MOST they could charge 49.99
3. No air conditioning! Sleeping is very difficult. There isn't even a fan in the room.
3. NO PHONE IN THE ROOM !!!! ridiculous.
4. To use the hairdryer that at most costs 9.99, you must leave a 20$ cash deposit.
5. You cannot drink the water from the taps.
6. Showers/hot water lasts max 10 mins.
7. Towels and linens are shabby and smell bad.
7. Beds are hard as a rock and probably haven't been replaced since the hotel opened
8. No ice machine, when you are staying in a room without a fan or air conditioning , a cold drink is neccesary.
9. You cannot drink the water as previously mentioned, and the pop machine was out of water for the 2 days we were there.
Even if you aren't fussy, (I'm not ) this hotel is sub-standard. I'm not sure how they have remained in business. For us, all the other hotels were booked so we had to stay at this disgusting hotel. Again, the receptionist was the most miserable woman I have ever dealt with in a hotel, which made my experience even worse. AVOID THE TIDAL BORE!!!

  • Liked — ABSOLUTELY NOTHING.. checking out, which included being harrassed by the receptionist at 1030 to be reminded of checkout at 11.
  • Disliked — Everything was terrible.
