7.5 Good
Pros: Breakfast was good with lots of variety. Really liked that it included eggs! The location was easy to find.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: It was really great, room are beautiful and clean, the owner was so kind and the breakfast was delicious !! I absolutely recommend it !!!
Cons: Nothing
7.0 Good
Pros: The couple who now run this aging motel are doing an exceptional job. Especially the breakfast, which, unlike the usual selection of inauthentic bagels, dry cereals, coffee and not very good juice, is made and served by them at a table. Not an especially great breakfast, but served with charm and efficiency and a bit of conversation. An old fashioned bed and breakfast in a fifties motel.
Cons: The accessories -- soap, shampoo, glassward (plastic cups) could be quite a lot better fairly easily. The bathroom fixtures could be improved, but not easily, obviously, and they served.
4.2 Okay
Pros: The bed was comfortable. The scenery was nice and it was quiet.
Cons: They did not inform us that there was breakfast. The coffee machine had not been cleaned and there was a dirty mug. They provided coffee the first day but no milk. ( when asked said they did not provide milk). The shower curtain was mildewed in several places.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: The owners are so helpful and kind. They really care about their business. The room was large and fully equipped.
Cons: Had some challenges with WIFI but they did genuinely try to help.
9.6 Excellent

10.0 Excellent

7.9 Good
Pros: Easy to find. Quiet. Clean.
Cons: The TV did not work well.
7.1 Good
Pros: The rooms were clean and adequate for an overnight. The bed was comfortable and had lots of pillows. I was pleased there was an empty fridge and a table and couch in the room. Didn’t even turn the tv on. There was breakfast with the room and that was good. Waffles and oatmeal with plenty of coffee.
Cons: The location was good because it was right off the highway and really simple to find since the signs could be seen from the highway, but Sackville is 30 minutes from Moncton so in that way the location is slightly inconvenient if enjoying a trip to Moncton.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Excellent breakfast, fabulous customer service, will return next time and stay there.
Cons: NA
7.9 Good
Pros: This is not a modern Big Chain motel. It is however a very decent motel with friendly and helpful Owner/Operators. My room was clean and comfortable, and a good breakfast was served. Location just off the TransCanada was perfect for my needs.
Marshlands Inn - Sackville - Building

C$ 114+
Overview Reviews
Located in Sackville, Marshlands Inn is within a 15-minute walk of Sackville Waterfowl Park and Mount Allison University. Free self parking is available onsite.
5.8 Okay
Pros: The location is perfect. It is clean.
Cons: We only saw one staff member. He seems to be the host, front desk clerk, and waiter. When we arrived he was sitting at a desk piled high with papers, in an office that was a mess, piled high with papers. He seemed totally disinterested in even getting out if his chair. We had booked months ahead through booking.com. When we arrived the inn seemed not to have any other guests but he tried to stick my husband and I in a room with two single beds on one floor and put our friend on the third floor in a tiny room with the bathroom across the hall. We never asked for the cheapest rooms in the inn so we were unhappy. We got different rooms beside each other but we both had to pay more to get them. The brochure in the room said breakfast started at seven but he told us it would have to be at eight. We arrived at the main building at 7:55, the doors were locked, not a soul in sight. Soon after, we saw him drive in and we walked back to the building. No apology, he let us in and then proceeded to turn the lights on In the building and we followed him to the dining room. He then bought us menus. We ordered tea and coffee which he brought, hot and nicely presented. Then he came back to take our orders. I ordered straight from the menu, fresh fruit and whole wheat toast. He tells me there is no fresh fruit! I changed my order. He brought our breakfast promptly .We enjoyed it. We left right after breakfast. We have stayed there before many years ago and had fond memories of our stay. Not this time, we will never go back. He mentioned that the following weekend was university homecoming and that they were fully booked! I hope they were better prepared!
6.0 Good
Pros: historic building with unique aesthetic, clean and comfortable
Cons: under-manned - very slow service when dining and checking out Despite having a reservation, we were initially told there was no room available. After some repairs were finished, we were accommodated but the delay in checking in was not welcome.
7.0 Good
Pros: Loved the old Inn and the dinner was deliicious.
Cons: A bit over the top in terms of decorations. Stuffed animals in our room were not required. The potpourri scent in the carriage house which required us to move to the main Inn. DFinner was very late because the owner had too much to do. Needs a chef and server so he can just look after guests and reservations. Understand that his wife was hospitalized but he will be too if he does not get more help.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Beautiful old home. I stayed in a lovely room in the carriage house where dogs are welcome. Highly recommend it.
5.4 Okay
Pros: The location is great. Beautiful back yard and gardens. Bed was super comfortable.
Cons: Hard to explain...just a very sad vibe. Such a beautiful old house with tons of potential. But...the owners seem to just be over it. No greeting or hospitality, which feels strange. I've Never been anywhere like that, and I've traveled a lot. The dolls totally creeped me out. And even though some of the furniture is lovely, it's all too dark and heavy. Not cosy at all. It's really too bad, because this place could be great. But it needs someone who really loves running an inn.
4.6 Okay
Cons: Outdated, run down, no coffee making facilities. Office was a total mess.
7.5 Good
Cons: The fellow at check-in was a little catty about our booking.com reservation. We needed a slightly different room and he gave us the gears about selecting the "cheapest option".
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Loved the beautifully decorated and maintained public rooms and magnificent wood panelled dining room. We were in a less expensive Carriage House room, but this was very spacious and comfortable with en-suite bathroom with bath, and quality mattresses and bedding.
5.4 Okay
Pros: Nice room but some cobwebs, thought I had booked a queen or double be but had to pay extra for that
9.6 Excellent
Pros: A beautiful Victorian home decorated in that style. It was a pleasant surprise to find that dinner was served at the inn and it was delicious.
Cons: The guest rooms were also in the Victorian style -- fewer knicknacks and a modern bathroom would have been more to our taste
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Decor and charm make this place truly outstanding. Very convenient location to walk around the town. Dining is elegant. I was traveling alone and the room was perfect for my needs. I would definitely recommend it for a romantic couples escape... not so much for families.
Cons: I think they may have been a bit short handed, it was hard to find desk staff...may be a temporary thing. I was surprised that the private bathroom associated with my particular room was actually across the hall... but it wasn't a problem in any way, just a surprise

7.9 Good
Pros: Brighter Lighting would be nice.
Cons: Cleaner rugs.
3.0 Mediocre
Pros: Only stayed as there was a family function there,
Cons: Management was rude, rooms not worth the money charged, very outdated hotel. Very hard to deal with as communication was very limited with staff.
4.2 Okay
Cons: Staff was very rude and in appropriate. We witnessed the lady at the front desk yelling at a customer loudly while he was very calm and was simply asking a question. She also told me twice that I never had a room booked, until I asked for someone else to serve me, then he found it right away. We also asked to bring our dog and they said no problem but when I called the day before to confirm, they stated that If I left my dog alone in the room, they would take it. I would never recommend anyone to stay here unless absolutely needed. It is only a 2 star so i guess I can’t expect too much but For the price, definitely not worth it. I hope management changes. Best regards
5.8 Okay
Pros: Breakfast was weak on selection.
Cons: The motel is OLD and shows it everywhere.
5.8 Okay
Pros: Decent breakfast; clean bathroom
Cons: A/c didn’t work well; TV channels on list required special subscriptions; nylon/polyester bed spreads were awful.
4.2 Okay
Pros: Breakfast was over at 9am. A/c was way too loud, the filter needed changing, there was an empty bucket of garbage and empty bottles at our door outside upon arrival, and beside the door next to us. The curtains didn't cover the whole window.
Cons: See above
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Beds are full queens. Rooms are old but clean and big. Right beside the highway so perfect for a one night stop and continuing to the rest of Nova Scotia.
Cons: Website advertises hot breakfast but it’s just continental. Pool was out of service
5.0 Okay
Pros: It was clean and the cleaning staff friendly
Cons: door where improperly maintained( hard shove to open, Beds were hard really hard, the pool wasnt open and later found out it hasn't been open for 2 years, breakfast was stale muffins and hard boiled eggs thats were at least a couple days old, they put out 1 bowl of mixed slice fruit first thing in the morning that was gone within 30 minuites so if you werent there right away you missed out,
5.8 Okay
Pros: Staff was friendly and courteous, I had left a pair of boots in my room and had someone else retrieve them with no issues. No problem checking in, it had a nice little breakfast in the morning.
Cons: Price was too high for the accommodations. Although clean it was rundown and had some cobwebs, along with creaking floors and old busted up doors. Building is outside town limits and has a view of nothing. I stayed on the ground floor so I was close to what amenities the place had which were few.
6.7 Good
Pros: The pool was closed which was the part the kids wanted the most :(The hotel seems to be under new management but the rooms were very clean and comfortable and breakfast was typical fare of cereal, bagels and yogurt.Fresh banana bread too! Price was high for what is basically a bed to sleep in for the night but I got a good deal with bookings.com!
Cons: No pool
