Very charming little place with friendly staff. Great value, comfortable and clean. Rooms had older furniture but it didnt bother me. Didn't have the breakfast but it sounded good and was only 3.50. Only complaint was shower size.

Room was pleasant but a little small. The breakfast offered for sale was good and of good value especially nice was the fine china. The grounds could be better kept, needed a little more grounds keeping.

I was impressed with the quality of accommodation that I had found in Nova Scotia. The friendly welcome, the facilities provided and value for money too, so it was here at Allen's Motel, an extremely attractive and well run establishment. Since 1971 owned by the same family, initially 22 years by Jessie & Arthur Oakley, now by their son Michael...

Normally when we visit the Annapolis valley we stay with friends. This year that option was not available, but we stayed at Allen's Motel which was almost the same thing. The property with its gardens and bird feeders is delightful, and as commented by others the rooms are clean and bright with tv wifi air conditioning assigned parking. Traditional motels...

This is a semi budget hotel with assigned parking outside your door. The rooms are clean but nothing fancy, bathrooms are small with a smaller shower (narrow with no elbow room), and each room has AC and a ceiling fan. There is free WiFi and breakfast is excellent for only $3.50 (no menu, same for everyone). The lady that runs...

This has to have been the best place we stay the whole time we were in Nova Scotia and we stayed at the Four Points Sheridan in Halifax and The Dundee resort to mention two. The Allen's Motel was the cleanest place we have ever stayed at, bright clean rooms, I am sure they must have redone the bathrooms as...

On first impressions, this motel lived up to its (mostly) rave reviews. The room was in the new part of the complex, clean, fresh and spacious. We were able to park the car right outside the room making it very convenient to transfer luggage upstairs. However, upon retiring to bed the "security" light outside our bedroom window floodlit the entire...

Our family stayed at the Allen Motel during the Gunn Tournie. We stayed in Room 8 which had two double beds, microwave, fridge. The room was spotless and quite large. We also enjoyed the breakfast for 3.50. It was absolutely lovely. We will definitely stay there again.

We enjoyed our stay so much that we stayed an extra night! Wonderfully quaint motel that has been maintained to high standards! Exceptionally clean, with excellent beds and well stocked kitchen. Excellent customer service from check in to check out! We arrived in unusual 30 degree weather and Joanne and Michael, the very gracious owners made sure the A/C had...

My husband and I stayed here for five nights in June. This is a lovely family run motel--older, but beautifully kept and extremely clean with good beds and very quiet at night. All your needs are anticipated before you even ask. The friendly owners provide a lovely, home-cooked breakfast in their home with all the amenities--homemade jams, locally-sourced eggs, bacon...
