Hearthstone Inn Port Hawkesbury
Ranked #2 of 2 Hotels in Port Hawkesbury
Reviewed 3 June 2013

We stopped here after a long day because two other motels in the area had not yet opened for the season. The peeling paint and general appearance of shabbiness should have been a warning. We killed a spider in the bathtub. The beds were uncomfortable and the pillows flat. I woke up in the morning to discover about a half-dozen bites on my neck and scalp. Beware!

The outside looked like we should have booked somewhere else...but the room was clean, beds were comfortable and we had a view of the Canso Strait. The mini-fridge kept things cold and there was a dvd player with the tv. There is still some cosmetic issues to be addressed but you can see that a few have been done.

Not sure of the current name of the place we stayed. It was actually across the road from the Hearthstone Inn.....was formerly Econolodge, but I think is perhaps owned by same.
We arrived late evening with no reservation on the Thanksgiving weekend. Room was comfortable and clean. We were delighted to find they had an indoor pool. Although it was in a separate building the weather was warm enough to walk over with our swimsuits on. We had a great swim for an hour before bed. Continental breakfast was cereal, toast, bagels, muffins, coffee, tea, juice....about what you would expect. Location is good right at the beginning of Cape Breton Island. Price was more than I would have expected in the off-season.

We stayed at this motel for two nightas the end of Sept 2012.Used it as our
base for a day trip around the Cabot Trail.
The location was perfect for this.The hotel itself appeared outdated on the exterior
so we didn't know what we were getting into.
Check in was fine with a nice lady checking us in.If I understood right the office
closed at 11P.M..The room we stayed in was fine and looked like it had been updated,
with a comfortable bed,nice T.V. and the bathroom was clean with lots of hot water.
Friends who stayed with us did fine a great bit of dust behind their desk.
The website stated that they serve a continental breakfast,however,there was no
sign of one,although,they do have a nice restaurant. We had a nice breakfast of
coffee,2 eggs,bacon,hashbrowns and toast for $6.99,and the service was excellent.
I might stay here again if the price was a little lower,however,I didn't feel that this
hotel warranted the price they charged,especially in late Sept,however maybe they
charge that because of the location. Overall we would rate this a 3 out of 5.

We stayed there at the end of August 2012. We arrived late at around 9PM. The entrance to our room had lots of spider webs. Some of them are really BIG. The room was clean but it had some kind of bad smell. This place does not provide breakfast. We checked out very early next day. It was not a good experience.

Reviewed 15 October 2011

We stayed one night on our way from Ingonish to Halifax. We were appalled that the carpet and bedspread were stained, the wallpaper was peeling, the paint was dirty and chipped, the lampshade was torn and stained, and the towels were thin.The old baseboard heater was rusted with part of it broken off (but it worked using the wall thermostat). There was 1 desk and 1 desk chair but no table or armchairs.

On the up side, the cabinetry was nice, the bed and desk chair were comfortable, the mini-fridge was new and the microwave was clean, plus there was a coffeemaker, iron and hairdryer. The bathroom shower curtain was clean and the tile floor looked new. There were 2 packaged cookies with the coffeemaker. Our room had a view of the Cansco Strait.

This motel would be a 3 star if they would finish updating everything in the rooms, especially the carpet, bedspreads, wallpaper and heating unit. Maybe they keep the light wattage low so people won't notice the stains, etc.

Room was clean and beds were reasonably comfortable, but hotel is old-fashioned single story and somewhat rundown. Rooms are also very dark, even with all available lights on. During the day, open curtains improve that somewhat, but also remove privacy.

Warning, walls are VERY thin. We could hear phones ring, and listen to conversations in the room next to ours. Bring your white-noise generator.
