“Cheap place to lay your head!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2013 via mobile

We stayed here for a night recently whilst travelling in Cape Breton. The owners were lovely - very helpful & friendly. The room was spotless. All the facilities that you need & very comfortable. I would recommend this motel.

This is a nice clean motel. It has a nice view of the mountain across from it.
Just don't trust your GPS to get you there (ours sent us on a detour at night). We had a hard time finding the sign in the dark too.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 October 2012

Very nice helpful friendly place, but the traffic noise will drive you crazy if that bothers you, we had expected something better to be honest and had planned to have our own breakfasts for our group of 12, but that cannot work here. No common room for meets etc, and we had to use the restaurant next door for breakfast which was a pain to be honest. We had real issues with jamming locks and the tv system is so complicated we did not use. I just got the impression there was more walks from here but you have this very busy road to deal with. Views of the lake and the mountain but this Motel is on the wrong side of the road to enjoy it all.My first time taking groups to Canada so lots to learn, With having to get breakfasts elsewhere this worked out dearer for us. if you want a quick clean bed for the night and early morning get away this is probably for you.

We stayed here a couple of days to explore the local area before heading around the cabit trail. Staff here were very friendly, it's a good clean hotel fo a few days in cape Breton. About half an hour to Cabot trail and an hour to louiseburg. Restaurant next door had good fish cakes!

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 September 2012

My husband and I were traveling to Newfoundland to take our son to college, and were looking for a place to stay for a night on the return trip. I read all the positive reviews of Kelly's View here on Trip Advisor so we stopped in after considering some alternatives, including some much pricier accommodations in the Baddeck area. I was thrilled that this little family-owned motel offered a comfortable, extremely clean place to spend the night. The room even had an adjustable, wall mounted flat screen 32" TV. The owners were very friendly and helpful, and we had a good night's rest. There was plenty of hot water for morning showers, and a wonderful view out the front window. This motel was an excellent value and I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again in the the future.

Everything was much better than I expected - cleanliness, well maintained, more modern than expected - free wifi, really good restaurant next door. You need to remember where you are - you're in Cape Breton - not Manhattan, you have to manage your own expectations - all mine were exceeded, and especially at the price! Very friendly staff, more than accomodating.

4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2012

Stayed one night after long day on trail. Just after Seal Island bridge. Great view of mountain. We enjoyed the chairs on lawn on a beautiful sunny afternoon. Ate at the restaurant next to the hotel, great meal! Audrey who runs the hotel is very friendly and helpful. Room was very clean, satelite TV, comfortable bed. She even had chips and pop for $1 in the office which I thought was a great idea. The traffic was noisy as the main road into Sydney runs along in front but when we closed our front window if was not too bad. Good price! Would recommend.

Room Tip: All rooms seemed the same....#15 on the end may be more quiet as only one room on one side.
