Excellent location, light breakfast, some rooms have a view, very clean and nice wood floors. $85 for the room was cheaper than two similar motels. Wireless is available. No AC but a nice breeze and a cool night made up for it. They also have a great porch to sit outside and enjoy the scenery.

Lady at front desk was very friendly and welcoming upon arrival. We were in motel #5 and it was nice and bright, clean and well kept. Bathroom was in great shape and fully stocked, Nice location with a partial view of the water and very quiet. Extremely clean. The term "motel" can be really misleading for people (perhaps with negative...

While touring the Cabot Trail we stayed 1 night in Cheticamp. We had stayed in Cheticamp about 6 years ago and stayed in Merry's Motel. We were very pleased with the motel then so we opted for it again this trip. Just as happy this time as before. Susan is a great hostess and keeps a spotless motel. The room...

We didn't book in advance, we just showed up and they had a room available. The room was simple - two double beds, a desk, a mini fridge, and bathroom. The motel is the absolute cleanest place I have ever stayed in! The breakfast is light - but that is stated in the motel description online, by the information centre,...

We stayed here for a night while driving the Cabot Trail. Price was decent (around $70) and we were given room 2 with an "ocean view". We were pleasantly surprised at how clean the room was - the wood floors are much better than carpets you usually find at motels. In fact, Merry's was cleaner than many of the more...

This motel is clean but the furnishings are very 50's and worn. The beds are hard and the towels are small and thin. We stayed in the condo unit with 2 beds in the loft. There was a third bed but it was like a teaspoon and unusable and fortunately we did not need it. The stairs to the loft...

This is one of my best motel because of the great ocean view. I opened my window in my bedroom and I could hear the ocean breeze... I slept like a baby. The beach is absolutely beautiful. Price is reasonable and it is very friendly.

This was my second year staying at Merry's Motel as part of a bike tour around the Cabot Trail. The rooms in the motel are neat, tidy and comfortable. The motel is set back from the road so it is quiet. There are some comfy Adirondack style chairs outside of each room and it is quite pleasant to sit out...

We had a nice stay at Merry's B&B. We had B&B room #9 with garden and sea view and a shared bathroom. But they also have some motel room on the back of the house (with private bathroom). It's quiet and clean, 2 mn walking distance from harbour and restaurants. Owners are from switzerland, and the wife is very friendly....

Stayed here for one night while driving the Cabot Trail. Room was small, but clean. Beds were comfortable. Bathroom was tiny with a shower stall. A breakfast of toast and muffins was included. The owner recommended a whale watching tour to us that was fantastic--we saw a dozen whales, and it was the highlight of our vacation. There are several...
