We stayed here for one night. Upon arriving check in was quick and the front desk staff were helpful. There is no elevator to the second floor so pack lightly. Shower pressure was good and there was a mini fridge that cooled wine nicely! 🙂 Breakfast was an average continental breakfast but wasn't great. Coffee was watered down and it...

Another Comfort Inn, this one in Charlottetown, allows for refunds with a $50 penalty. This one does not, even though it would have been cheaper to cancel a booking due to its inflated price from a travel agency and re-book with the fares offered by Expedia, Booking, etc, even with the refund. The discrepancy between what the agency charges and...

A few big problems with this hotel: 1. No elevator to second floor 2. The AC unit is as loud as a jet engine 3. Worst of all, bed bugs! Breakfast is very basic, not on the same level as other similar hotel but it's the other big issues above makes me write this review.

Please be advised that we are monitored regularly by a professional pest control company. We immediately called them to the property after reading your post, they have...

My bride and I stayed here after we got off of the ferry from Port aux Basque, Newfoundland. It was uneventful: The place was clean, the beds good, the wi-fi worked and the breakfast was eatable. I'd stay there again.

As someone who has worked in hotels both in housekeeping and the front desk, I can say with confidence that this is a super little hotel.

Stayed here for one night on the way to the Newfoundland ferry. Although the ferry is in North Sydney, it's only about 20 minutes to the terminal and is mostly highway.
