“Great place.”
Reviewed 28 August 2013

We stayed here for 3 nights and it was a wonderful experience. The rooms were very clean and it was everything we needed. The staff was very friendly and helpful and I would recommend this to anyone.
We were able to do our laundry in a very clean laundry room too
Compliments to management !

We recently stayed at Holland College for a one night stopover in Charlottetown. We have stayed in many college/university residences and this one is one of the better ones. It is clean and comfortable. We had a 2 bedroom unit each with double bed, air conditioner and TV. My daughter and I walked to the downtown area in about 10 minutes or so. There is a nice little playground right beside it. Parking is close, just across the street. The staff was friendly and helpful. I would recommend Holland College- Glendinning Hall and I would stay again if in Charlottetown.

Stayed for a night - for Charlottetown; compared to hotels, this place is reasonable for a night's stay with free parking just opposite the premises. Friendly staff, rooms are with A/C and bathroom is clean and beds are OK, but linen was not. There is only wired internet and no WiFi. Though we stayed in a 4 guests unit, it had only a small table in the kitchen with two chairs. Breakfast is bare minimum, not that good. But for the price, it's fine.

Stayed here for 5 nights and found it really comfortable, in a great location and very helpful staff. So affordable I will recommend it to anyone wanting a budget yet excellent stay in Charlottetown. There is also breakfast included every morning between 7-930!

This is inexpensive lodging apartment-style, good value for your money. They offer 2 and 3 bedroom apartments with one bathroom and a small kitchen.The table in the kitchen is more like a counter top with high chairs. Not a lot of room in there, and in the 3 bedroom apartment, there were 3 kitchen chairs. Each bedroom has a tv. The bathroom includes a sink in a separate alcove, a bathtub in a separate tiny room, and a toilet in another separate room. This maximises the number of people able to simultaneously do bathroom business.
The apartment was clean. No carpet,just hardwood floors. There was a laundry room on our floor.
The continental breakfast consisted of toast, bagels with butter or cream cheese, packaged bran muffins, juice, coffee, tea. That's it.
It's an easy walk to Confederation Centre. No need to drag your car around. Parking for this hotel is in a lot across the street. You get a pass from the front desk.
Economically, this is worth it. The place was full the night we were there.

One night was enough! Accommodation is extremely basic - we stayed in a two bedroom unit on the ground floor -117 - it was dark, depressing, so noisy (next to the elevator room (that hissed and clanked every time anyone road the elevator). And between 7 and 8 am on Saturday morning that noise repeated 16 times because I counted!. Then there was the noise from the people in the unit above on Friday night until that family settled down around midnight. Beds were hard and low to the ground. No bedside lamps. Good tV's in both bedrooms. No Wifi in the units.

Even if it had been the quietest unit in the building I would still never chose to stay there again. I have never stayed in a prison environment in my life - but I would think these rooms are similar to what "open" prison quarters are like. A small kitchen in the unit with fridge, stove and microwave - but completely empty kitchen cupboards - no cutlery, plates, cups, cooking utensils etc- completely empty apart from two small plastic glasses on the counter. No tissues in the bathroom - just one roll of toilet paper, four towels and two face clothes, miniature soap and shampoo. A lounge where light breakfast is served is where the you can hook onto wifi.

So depressing we couldn't wait to leave - not good accommodation regardless of the cost. Should list themselves as a hostel, because the description they give to would be visitors is extremely misleading.

Thank you for taking the time to write this review. I am very sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us. We are a 2.5 star student residence and however, we pride ourselves in providing simple, clean, affordable rooms in downtown Charlottetown, with friendly and helpful staff. We do have kitchen supplies to lend out, as the person who checked you in should have told you and I apologize that they did not. We also make note of that in our welcome letter that is left in the kitchen of each unit.
You are correct, we do not offer wifi in the individual rooms, but we do have it in the six lounges in the building. I also apologize that you found your room noisy, I have not been told that before by summer guests or students, but I will look into that in case there is something that needs to be adjusted with the elevator.

I happened to stay at this place during the weekend of the Cavendish Beach Festival. I had booked a 2 bedroom apartment. For the price, the place is decent. The interiors are just okay, but there is not AC in the kitchen/living area. The common area which has a Foosball and Air Hockey table doesn't have an AC too which isn't good.The beds are smaller if plan to share it.

There is no wireless internet in the apartments, but I was able to catch the one from the common area. They serve Continental breakfast which is a good thing.

The waterfront and other Downtown areas are minutes away which is a good thing.

They charge you $15 if you lose you room access key, which is not the case in bigger hotels. Parking is free but across the street.

I would recommend this place if you don't have deep pockets and can overlook the few glitches mentioned here.

Thank you very much for taking the time to write a review – we appreciate your feedback!
We have taken your advice, and we have installed an air conditioner in the Foosball and Air Hockey common room. We do charge $10 for lost keys, simply because that is what we pay for them and as you can imagine, it gets quite expensive to replace them frequently. Perhaps larger hotels factor that cost in their rates but we try to keep our nightly rates as low as possible.
I hope that you will stay with us again when you return to Charlottetown.
