“Everything We Needed”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014

We stayed in Albert's Motel for two nights in June. The room was smaller than those in some chain hotels, but met our needs perfectly. There are limited lodging options in Cheticamp, and I would highly recommend Albert's. Like other reviewers have mentioned, it is a well-kept and clean motel. The rooms are not air conditioned, but screen windows and a fan help to circulate the air when needed. There is also an electric fireplace for chilly nights. We we arrived, I didn't think we would have any use for the fireplace, but it was just what we needed after hiking for a few hours in the rain. Cheticamp is a small town, so a few shops and restaurants are within walking distance as well as a small boardwalk on the water. Albert's does not serve breakfast, but there is a co-op across the street as well as a Tim Horton's and a few bakeries just a short drive through town.

Our plans changed and we needed to book a place to stay in Cheticamp. We called before and they were booked back a few weeks ago but decided to call and see if they had cancellations. They ended up having another property for rent right beside the hotel. it was super clean and a great price. The service was amazing and the lady who checked us in and out was so helpful and friendly. highly recommend this place as it is close to the Cabot Trail and Whale Watching in Pleasant Bay. There is a Tim Horton's close by as well.

My wife and I had the pleasure recently of staying at Albert's Motel in central Cheticamp, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia. As we would be split up for part of the time we were in the area with only one car, we were looking for a motel that would be within walking distance of much of what Cheticamp has to offer, and Albert's is that. Right across the road is the town's grocery store, and a bank, and several restaurants are also close by,and within walking distance.
The motel complex is small with only 4 rooms, but each unit has access to the deck that runs along the front of the units. Views of the harbor are afforded from the deck. The rooms are very clean and comfortable.
The owner was very friendly, and eager to help with suggestions for places to eat, as well as the local attractions. Of course the main attraction is the nearby Cape Breton Highlands National Park, one of Canada's jewels in its national park system.
We would be happy to stay there again if we get back this way.

Room Tip: All the rooms seem to be about the same.

My teammates and I stayed at Albert's a few weeks ago when we participated in the Cabot Trail Relay. Our team had stayed there previously so we knew it was a good place but this year our hosts really went above and beyond. They not only ensured water and lots of fresh towels were waiting for us, they provided excellent advice and the use of their vehicle so that we could pick up pizza when our van broke down. Only in Cape Breton!! As this year's team captain, I especially appreciated how friendly and helpful they were when we booked our rooms. If you're looking for a clean, bright, quiet, comfortable, well-equipped place to stay with nice views of Cheticamp harbour to enjoy while you sip your morning coffee, I highly recommend Albert's.It's not fancy, but it's all a road-weary traveller needs to get a good night's rest. We've already booked our rooms for next year's race and I hope to stay there this summer when a friend and I travel to Cape Breton.

Nice, clean well equipped place with friendly people. great front porch with nice rocking chairs...right across from the co-op to get supplies and the water. We had room #2. two double beds ...they were comfortable but a bit firm, mini fridge (no air conditioning at the time of our rental)

We stayed here for a couple of nights whilst travelling the Cabot trail and couldn't have asked for better. The motel is well located, room was spotless and has everything you need, especially comfy beds! Lovely view from the room and the veranda. Although there is no breakfast served here, there is a co-op across the raod so you can do your own, or else take a nice walk down the road to Evangeline.Owners are really friendly and helpful, point you in the right direction for what ever you need.....perfect stay!

We stayed at Albert's on 17 September 2013 - sorry for the late review!! When we arrived, we received a very warm welcome. Albert's is a small motel with just 4 rooms - much nicer than staying in a large motel. Parking is right at the front of your room. Our room was fantastic - it was obvious that it had recently be renovated. It was was very clean with 2 double beds, fridge and microwave. It had a large window with beautiful views of the water between the town and Cheticamp Island. There is a balcony at the front of each room, which we found to be very pleasant to sit on at the end of the day. Opposite the motel, there is a large supermarket which we found handy as breakfast is not offered at Albert's. There are good restaurants nearby and we chose Le Gabriel - we had wonderful meals there.
I would stay here again and would recommend it to family and friends.
