“Better Than Expected”
Reviewed 18 September 2013

I booked this motel as an economical alternative to the hotels in Truro. I wasn't expecting a great deal based on the outside appearance. I was pleasantly surprised by the space afforded in the room/bathroom. Yes, the decor is a bit tired but it is clean, centrally located and comes at a good price. Although it is located at a busy corner, the rooms at the far end of the parking lot were very quiet. I'd stay there again.

Room Tip: sk for a room at the far end of the parking lot. Meals at the attached restaurant were very good and...

We love stopping in here for a quick bite and drinks when we are in Truro, NS visiting family. The staff are always cheerful, and the crowd friendly. There is a motel if we need a room and the restaurant serves good food, games and occasionally live music. Check out the bar in the lounge for a great place to chill and try drink specials!

Been traveling from the us to eastern canada and found the stonehouse to be one of the better stops we made. our tv remote didn't work and what seemed like seconds a man came and fixed it for us. Recommend this motel mainly because of the friendly people running it.

Room Tip: Stay here and if you have any complaints they will be dealt with asap.

Very good price, but you definitely get what you pay for. The bathroom had one bar of soap, was really tiny, no shampoo, etc. Everything had soap scum and was rusting and the floors were very very dirty. The sheet on the bottom of the bed, was more like a mattress pad that was way to small, I woke up on the mattress itself. For a one night stay it wasn't too bad but I would try somewhere else first.

This is a first review for me even though I had promised Rana I would do so earlier than this, I do apologize. My stay was wonderful; it was a long Easter weekend and I woke up to snow (not counting on that). Regardless, the staff here were wonderful, I didn't have a chance to order a drink or enjoy the food yet I dare say it was all the best. Remember this, it might not be a 5 star hotel, however it has 5 star pricing and accomodations. Paper thin walls do happen in ritzy places too people. I am only sorry I haven't been able to return for another stay. Looking like possibly over the Christmas season, I may be enroute in that direction again. If so, I know where I'll rest comfortably. Hats off to the Stonehouse family as that is the sense one gets from their staff.

Room Tip: Remember it is the smaller businesses that keep our economy going and employ local people. I woud e...

I stayed in room 22, it was very dated and not as clean as it should have been, the bathroom sink still had soap scum on it from the previous guests. When I went to have a shower at 5am the shower head was so clogged there was just a small amount of water coming out, at this hour of the morning there was nothing I could do about this. When the lounge closed there was quite a bit of noise (Nov. 1, 2012)

I regret that you did not enjoy your stay. I immediately replaced the shower head with a new one. I spoke with the new housekeeping staff about the importance of making sure rooms are very clean.
