We found this wonderful place in Pictou and were greeted warmly by the owner. We had a great room with a large bathroom and a small area with a fridge, microwave and sink. The downstairs entry had a lovely sitting room and pool table. Free wifi is always a bonus, The bed was comfortable and the room very clean. We'd... More

Very quiet room was small but very comfortable. Ensuite bath with jacuzzi tub was well received by the wife. Old fashion television with satellite reception neat!! Office was just a short walk away but the manager lived on premises. There was a pooltable downstairs and a quiet room beside it. All in all worth the money it cost.It like the... More

Whomever Dolan is seems to own the town. Units, houses, cabins scattered everywhere which, as other travellers have indicated, makes locating yours challenging. Our 'house' had just been vacated by renters. We were greeted by a sign in the kitchen warning us about the maggots, a dead landline, and an unresponsive wifi. Fortunately, my brother and father got the TV... More

Sorry that you had a negative experience however that is no reason to get insulting. I went to your house because my inn keeper called and could not get internet working. 9 times out 10 I am successful. Your house had fibe which included telephone, internet and TV.

It took us 30 minutes to locate the office for Dolan's Inn and Suites. We ended up having to go to the local post office to get directions. Because we travel with a small dog, we were assigned to "Silver 2." Upon arrival (It's about a mile from the office.), we saw a house with a much-needed paint job on... More

Not exactly as expected as there are multiple buildings. Office is on the main Street into town but due road detour we missed it. Our building was 2 doors away from the office in an older house about 1 KM from town. We had a smaller room with decent sized bathroom. Also had access to the front deck which was... More

We stayed one night with this Inn. They have many different buildings so we took a 2 bedroom cottage. Our only problem was that there were stairs to the bedrooms and one of my party has trouble with stairs so once upstairs she stayed up and came down in the morning. The cottage was very clean and the beds were... More

My wife and I stayed at Dolan's en route from PEI to Cape Breton. Coming toward town, I turned in at the long, rutted driveway at the Office sign, parked under the Employee Parking Only sign, which was the only area available, and walked to the office door, only to be greeted by a sign that the office was now...

Overall, very nice place. There are a lot of different Dolan's places in Pictou so we weren't sure which one was ours. We checked in at the motel and walked down the street to the old house. We had the very top room which had a nice kitchen and bathroom. They advertise spa bathtubs and had one, but there was... More

Dolans was a great experience where there were a couple very small hiccups which were handled very fast. Check in- they changed the location of the office for all 10buildings you could stay in so after going into the first building had to go 3 houses down the street. Not a major inconvenience but they should update their signs accordingly.... More

We stay here only one night during our trip of 4000 km. Place is a typical Canadian house with some beds to sleep. House is clean and quite. Very comfortable. There is no possibility to use kitchen to cook something.
