“Hidden little gem”
Reviewed 22 June 2011

Although not much to look at from the road, this motel is clean, comfortable and surprisingly modern. The host, clark, seems to know everything there is to know about prince edward island and provides a quazi-concierge service that is better than that found in most high price hotels.

The location is fantastic, you can take a day trip to anywhere on the island and because you're not staying in Charlottetown ($$$) you can spend your money on other things.

I chose this motel because of the glowing reviews on Tripadvisor and we were not diaapointed. The friendliness of the Clarks, the comfort of the room and the tranquility of the grounds were appreciated after a day of sightseeing, including a stop at the Potato Museum at O'Leary as recommended by Miles Clark. His father recommended a restaurant for supper and we concur that the fish and chips at Skips are just the best. I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again, or recommend it to anyone.

It is obvious that the family who own this property and motel and the staff that they employ dearly love the land and the business. Extremely friendly and helpful -- giving us historical information about the town - good tips on where to eat, etc. The room was immaculate! The walking trail to the water very interesting (but use bug deterrent). Would like to return someday. Bed was very, very comfortable!

Loved this motel. Very clean and comfortable, run by the very friendly Clark family. Many rooms renovated, property vast and immaculate. All the amenities of a large hotel at half the price and twice the personality. This will be my motel of choice when staying in Summerside from now on.

This motel deserves its excellent rating because of its great value. The Clark Family maintains a very clean and up to date motel. We were delighted with the furnishings and cleanliness of our room; and by the very friendly service. If you are looking for "The Ritz", this is not it. But, if you are looking for a top notch motel in the traditional sense, then book your reservation with great confidence.

My wife and I arrived on Prince Edward Island by car and drove to Clark's Sunny Isle, based on our AAA Tour Book. We were impressed FIRST with a warm and helpful welcome.
We were NEXT impressed with the very reasonable rates. Finally, we loved the great location, the excellent room, the quiet surroundings, and the spacious grounds.
We spent 3 nights at Sunny Isle Motel, and of all the places we stayed on this 26-day vacation in the NE USA and ATLANTIC PROVINCES , this motel gave us the closest feeling of being "AT HOME" after each day's adventure on PEI !!

We were treated with care, concern and helpful recommendations. IF we ever get back to PEI, Clark's Sunny Isle Motel is where we will stay !!

Room Tip: Ask for one of the rooms away from the front.

My partner and I went down to Summerside to visit friends, and we were so grateful to have discovered this little Gem. They are renovating the rooms and they are Spectacular. We have stayed at a lot of motels, and this is by far our new Favorite! We will definately be back to stay with Myles and his family again. The hospitality was outstanding. We definately would recommend Clark's Sunny Isle Motel to all our family and friends travelling to PEI. Thank you again Myles for such a memorable stay!
