8/10 Very good

We had a nice little cabin type room. My only complaint is that there is not much around the area. We had just got off the ferry from Newfoundland and were tired and we had a good sleep. Property is transitioning to a new owner.

Nothing unique about this property Checkout and restrarant .in same area.Not enough staff and owner too busy with restrarant customers and takeout orders to attend to motel customers quickly.Our stay was three days after huricane Fiona yet it was only after we arrived at 7:30pm we were advised there was no interact,and no internet or tv in room and payment would have to be cash.Had to search for an ATM machine at 8:00pm At checkout there was no discount for inconveniance or the fact there was no internet or TV in room.Will definitely not stay at this motel again. after huricane Fiona
