I spent a night at The Cove Motel at the end of their season. The staff were all very friendly and went out of their way to ensure that we were comfortable and that all our needs were looked after. The room was clean and comfortable. The outside temperature was cool with rain

The Cove is located off the 104, down a VERY long driveway and right on the Canso Straight. Quiet location. Room decor is dark and dated, but the room was clean and the bed comfortable. Breakfast is not included, but the restaurant is convenient and adequate.

You can order breakfast at their restaurant but it is not included. We had a nice dinner there. For breakfast we hit the Big stop just up the road.
