The owner/staff were exceptional, helpful and knowledgeable. We were greeted by the owner, he was so very helpful and directed us to a lovely restaurant for dinner. He provided us with ice as needed and was a joy to talk to about the area. The room was spacious, comfortable and very clean. Would recommend a stay here!

Booked through booking.com and called to ask about room amenities. The owner was so abrupt and outright rude that I decided not to go there. I called booking.com and they had to intervene on our behalf. When I cancelled he still charged a fee. Something is very off and I am happy we did not stay at this property.

Werger, Owner at Margaree Riverview Inn, responded to this review

He booked at booking.com and I have just him told that he has to cancel with them. There is a 48 hour cancellation policy, I have just charged a small fee (I could have charge the whole amount). He did not ask for room amenities, he just wanted to stay in Cheticamp. More

What a great place to stay! Staff were so helpful and our room was clean and spacious. It was well equipped with a microwave, coffee, tea etc. Easy drive up access to room. The person at the front desk even let me borrow his vacuum for me to vacuums out my car. He set everything up for me when I... More

You know, a place this old for this price isn't going to be 110% perfect. But it's pretty darn close, for half the price of other places, and the owner and cleaning staff are fantastic. Any minor troubles we had he found a way to accomodate us, and when we left money in our room by accident she returned it... More

After travelling the Cabot trail we ended up in Cheticamp. Let's just say one night was enough in that fishing community. We were booked for two nights. Not wanting to stay in the ugly village we looked elsewhere. Margaree Valley is beautiful and often overlooked. We ended up staying in the deluxe suite at the Riverview. It was more like... More

Owner was really nice. Room was clean and spacious with solid wifi which was great after being in a cell dead zone on the Cabot trail. Pool was great too. Location is great also as you can choose multiple directions of travel following your stay.

My Son and I just returned from an eleven day motorcycle vacation to Nova Scotia. We had planned to spend the night in Inverness but found no rooms were available and through the efforts of another motel were able to contact the Margaree Riverview Inn and confirm they had a room available for us.

Restaurant on premises was closed. Had to go elsewhere for breakfast. Friendly staff but the motel is generally over promoted. It needs repair work and the rooms need more attention to cleanliness. Price was the most I would pay for this quality. No place to sit when in a motel room, except at edge of gravel parking lot if you... More

For the price we paid for Suite 1, this was great value...2 bedrooms with private bathrooms attached, lounge area, dining table, small kitchenette. The Inn could use a coat of paint outside and some updating of furnishings, decor etc but this was not crucial to a good night's sleep...which is what my friend and I were looking for en route...

This was a nice quiet and inexpensive place to start a tour of the Cabot Trail. Room was clean and the heat had been turned on. It is basic, but for the cost and convenience a nice place to stay. It is motorcycle friendly as well! We were probably the first riders on the trail this season.
