Willow Bend is not on a travel destination highway...its a hidden gem, a marvellous place to stop and refresh. The rooms are beautiful, the beds very comfortable, even the pillows are wonderful.......and the most inviting pool tucked in between the buildings with a gazebo and chaises .....its salt water filtered so no chlorine, and heated....AND their breakfast is a treat......well...

This motel had newly renovated rooms very nice towels and decor. The town itself does not have much we just stayed here on our way to halifax. Kids swam in outdoor pool which was nice. Breakfast is also included in price.

Just like the pictures! Nicely updated rooms that are tastefully decorated. Nice breakfast area made us feel like we were in a posh hotel. Fairly good selection for breakfast. We would surely stay here again. We stayed here 2 nights and went tidal bore rafting. Pool area looked nice also but we did not use it.

We rented a family suite for 2 nights and had a great stay. The room includes a good sized living area with pull-out bed, plus a bedroom area with 2 queen sized beds. The living/bedroom space has been nicely updated and has a clean, modern feel. The beds were excellent. The bathroom was functional, though to my taste the tiling... More

My daughter and I spent one night here on the first of July. It was our first time staying here and we were pleasantly surprised. The motel is conveniently located just a fifteen minute easy walk to the new Community Center and very close to a coffee shop. Our motel room was small but clean, with two very comfortable double...

I stayed here on my last day of a 10 day trip to the maritimes. It is a very nice motel, great beds, quick wifi, nicely updated. I would book again. Truro is only a 30 minute drive to the Halifax airport, as well.

We were very pleased with rooms. Updated with hard wood flooring and comfortable beds. Perfect for a family. Breakfast was good as well. Nice pool and located fairly close to main highway. Within walking distance of a drugstore and Tim Hortons.

Booked this room based on the Trip Advisor reviews. Did not disappoint.. Modern furnishings, nicely decorated, kitchenette, A/C. Also enjoyed the heated outdoor pool. How many motels offer a (albeit continental) breakfast? Each room has a WiFi modem for a flawless connection to the Internet, and a flat screen TV.
