River John Hotel Guide

There are less than a handful of Expedia-accredited hotel options within a 0.1-kilometre (0.06-mile) radius of downtown River John, so it's recommended to book your room early if you'd like to stay in a central River John hotel.

The closest Expedia hotel is the Smith Rock Chalets & Retreat, Nova Scotia, which is located 17 kilometres (11 miles) from the heart of River John. As an alternative, try the Emily's Oceanside Cottages, located in New Glasgow, which is 7 kilometres (4 miles) away.

Coming from the center of River John, it is 19 kilometres (12 miles) to the Dolan's Inn & Suites Tatamagouche.

Antigonish is 85 kilometres (53 miles) to the east of River John and is where you'll find Antigonish Golf and Country Club and Antigonish Mall. Should you wish to spend a night or two in Antigonish, check out the room rates at the Maritime Inn Antigonish and Micro Boutique Living - Antigonish. Or stay in Truro, 45 kilometres (29 miles) to the south of River John, where you can choose from the Holiday Inn Truro and Best Western Glengarry Hotel. If you're staying in Truro, be sure to check out the Truro Golf Club and Victoria Park.

Before you say goodbye to New Glasgow, ensure you catch local game. Visit Antigonish Arena to the east of River John. For travelers who are interested in staying nearby, make a reservation in the Homeward Inns of Canada or Antigonish Towne Cottage.
