We were thrilled to arrive and see that we were steps away from the water at low tide, as we were dying to experience walking on the ocean floor. Did it within 5 minutes of arriving, was so neat but the mud sucking at your feet up to the ankle gets tiring, so after about 20 minutes and not even making halfway to the water line, we turned back. Thankfully, there is a hose to clean your feet right outside the hotel. If you tried this on any old beach, I have no idea how you'd get that thick sludge off you to get back in your car. It was truly amazing to see the change of scenery the next day at high tide. Sunset and sunrise was pretty too, and there are chairs available to put near the rocky ledge that separates the beach from the motel. Don is very relaxed and doesn't care if you take a drink out there to chill out.
So this is the good part of this motel. Sadly, I have to agree with some other reviewers who thought it a little too rustic. I don't mind rustic, but the shower was reminiscent of an old fashioned campground shower. And the bed-it didn't squeak; it creaked and groaned with each and every turn. It was hard too, but I could have dealt with that; it was the creaking that woke me so many times that made it intolerable. Other reviewers have mentioned it, and I think it's worth fixing or replacing. Only one full roll of toilet paper seems chintzy, two seems reasonable, especially with no tissues in the room. The walls are PAPER THIN; we could hear the people next door's bathroom noises-for real. The wifi was so spotty we gave up even trying. Took forever to load a page and then would disconnect anyways. We went to the office but no one was there (we didn't expect that either) nor did it seem worthy of a phone call, though all their numbers were posted on the door.
The owner was friendly, we had no issue there. So, if you don't mind those issues I mentioned and you really want the Bay of Fundy close- up experience, stay here. Nothing compares to seeing low and high tide in the same location, in order to really experience the phenomenon.
