Oasis Motel and Campground
Ranked #4 of 6 Hotels in Antigonish
Reviewed 13 August 2014 via mobile

A road side motel????
Our stay was very good. Don't let the appearance fool you. The room was clean and quiet. Got a good nights sleep. The people were very attentive and work hard. Breakfast is served to your room (breakfast in bed!!! Wonderful!!) a nice surprise service. Will stay there again, when we pass through.

This hotel is located on the Trans Canadian Highway, which is too bad! Oasis did not aptly describe our experience here, as the noise overrode our peace and restful sleep. Move this hotel to a quiet location and Oasis would apply.

The room was recently updated and was large and comfortable. The bathroom was also renovated. A lovely breakfast was brought to our room. If not for the noise, I'd give it 5 stars.

If you don't mind the noise and are not a light sleeper this is the motel for you. It's great for bikers or those who need to be on the road.

There are no motel chains in Antigonish, but the Oasis provides a clean and comfortable room for a moderate price. The motel is family run, and the owners pay close attention to their guests needs. Rooms are recently renovated, beds are comfortable and everything works. Indeed, rooms have a remote controlled heat/cooling pump, and interior climate is most comfortable. One of the owners is a good cook and delicious omelets are provided free for breakfast. An outdoor swimming pool is behind the building and was a welcome relief from the warmth of the July day. The internet connection was provided, but is a little slow. This little glitch will have to be improved. All-in-all a fine experience, and the nearby Bauer Theatre made for a great evening.

Clean, clean, clean. The owners have worked magic on the rooms and this place is so much better than its exterior shows. Our room had a completely rebuilt bathroom with new fixtures. Water pressure was excellent and there was plenty of hot water. The flat-screen tv hangs on the wall and is never in the way. Older motels tend to have small rooms–and this one is no exception–but the space is used efficiently and our room included a small desk, chair and end table. There's enough room for two people get get around without bumping into one another and the side of the bed doesn't sit jammed against a wall. The bed was a bit soft for me, but comfortable. Breakfast comes with the room, in fact, it gets delivered to you at whatever time you request.

The only drawback is its relative closeness to the highway, but that shouldn't matter unless you're unusually sensitive to traffic noise; neither one of us had any trouble sleeping. (Traffic lessened after 10 PM but never completely disappears–in the summer.)

The owners are accommodating and really want you to have a good stay.

Room Tip: Rooms closer to the office have stronger wifi connection.

We were looking to get a good night's sleep before travelling on to catch the Newfoundland ferry in the morning. We saw this little motel just off the highway. From the outside it looked a little run down. We decided it was worth a try and were we ever surprised. The rooms were totally sparkling and updated once we got into the room. One of the owners even came to the room (at 11:00 PM) to show us how the brand new heat/air conditioning system worked.

The room had new carpets, chairs and a new bed. There was even a flat screen tv with satellite tv as well. This motel also offers complimentary wifi and breakfast. We left to early to try the breakfast. The bathroom was also totally renovated.

We will remember this motel for its cleanliness and the friendliness of the owners.

Room Tip: Clean comfortable renovated rooms

Originally booked online, but had to cancel last minute when I found out my Ferry to Newfoundland got moved up 6 hrs, forcing me to push through to North Sydney. Staff was very understanding of my situation and I received the full refund.
I made it a point to stay at Oasis on my return trip, if the timing worked out. Fortunately it did! Staff seemed a bit caught off guard by my showing up on their doorstep at 11pm requesting a room. I guess most bookings do occur online these days. One room was available - very clean, quiet, comfortable, great shower- exactly what I needed in the midst of a lengthy road trip. Had no idea about the omelets though until just reading the reviews here- a little bummed I wasn't informed of this option from the staff and missed out on that! Will definitely stay again if the opportunity presents itself.
