“The only place in town worth staying at.”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

Pros:

- Millers Pub
- Pool
- Accommodating Staff
- Clean Rooms

Cons:

- Terrible pillow top matresses
- Old CRT TVs, its 2013 already upgrade!
- Terrible internet
- No fridge
- Outrages prices (160$/night with tax)

Summary:

Will avoid staying here again, I have family in town and anytime I'm back here for business I will not be staying here. I realize that this is the only respectable hotel in town so you can charge whatever you want, but still, these prices are in line with what I pay per night in Alberta...

Also as a businessman my 3 main concerns when staying in a hotel are: bed, TV, and internet. And all 3 were dreadful. But I still gave it 3 star because the staff was great and the hotel was mostly quiet at nights.

Room Tip: Avoid the bottom floor.

We stayed in the Maritime Inn, during our trip on the North West Coast of Canada.
Understood that we had made a good chose by booking this Hotel.
We have been given a special treat by the chef for dinner, as he prepared the exact meal we asked for, and perfectly.

We are on a "Maritime Road trip" and stopped here on our way to the Cabot Trail Loop. The hotel is very nice, the rooms are new or newly refurbished. We had a comfortable King bed, large Flat Screen TV, fridge, coffee maker and free wifi and the staff is very friendly There is a pub onsite that serves food and beverages that was both good and convenient. I would recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: There are no elevators and we stayed on the 3rd floor. Not a problem for us, but be aware and choose...

At check-in the hotel was full up. When we arrived we needed to change our room due to handicap accessibility. Reservations had never explained the room we booked required walking up a flight of stairs. This would have been impossible for my husband. Another guest was checking in at the same time and offered to switch rooms. The hotel staff assisted in every way to accomplish the change. Breakfast was also very good. This is an older motel property, but it is obvious they try very hard to keep it up.

I stay here frequently and every time I do the quality of service is A+. From the check-in staff to the housekeeping staff and the staff in both restaurants, they really impress me with their prompt, courteous and friendly manner. I am always impressed with how clean the rooms are, the quantity and quality of my meals and the friendly and cheerful staff who greet you so nicely in all areas of the Inn. keep up the great job!

Room Tip: I am not a huge fan of the drive up and park rooms located on the main level in front and back, ther...

This was a comfortable hotel. Not fancy, but clean and comfortable. I don't usually have high expectations for hotel restaurants, but this was a pleasant surprise. We did not have any issues with the WiFi.

Room Tip: Breakfast is not complimentary, but the restaurant does a fine job.

Rooms are nice, though unremarkable. Clean and well laid out. There is also a very good restaurant in the hotel for dinner - a good selection of beer and very good food. Being in the Maritimes, the staff are always friendly and chatty.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the updated rooms.
