“Extremely good value.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2013

It IS a motel so don't arrive expecting luxury. That being said, clean, comfortable, great location, excellent facilities, helpful knowledgeable staff. Actually looked nicer than the pictures on the website would suggest.

The little towel animals are especially charming.

Stayed here in July, 2013 and have only good things to report. Our room was clean and quiet. This is a dog-friendly motel that has the Confederation Trail running along the back of the property. Wonderful hiking and walking for dogs and their 'companions'. Very convenient to downtown Summerside, a 5 minute easy drive. The owners are friendly and welcoming. We would definitely stay here again.

We stayed for 3 nights June 17-19th. We were there in 2012 and did not want to take any chances on another motel. A few of the rooms have older small T.V.'s so we asked for one of the newer renovated rooms with the larger HD TV mounted on the wall which we enjoy watching after a day of sight seeing and beaching. The motel is always very clean and we have never encountered any noisy guests. We like the handy laundry facility. We like the bar fridge to have cold drinks and food for small lunch instead of eating every meal out. Overall a great place.

Room Tip: ask for a new renovated room with the wall mounted HDTV.

Booked a last minute booking for this hotel during a recent visit to the island, we stayed 3 days and were very happy with the clean, neat and well kept motel. It has excellent access to the confederation trail. Great value and would stay here again.

We stayed in this hotel in June 2013 and found it very comfortable for our stay. The room was clean and everything in working order. The room was tastefully made and we liked our one night stay there.

We stayed here three years ago and it only gets better. The rooms are super clean and feature new rooms. The towel animals are very cute and Kendra was very helpful in giving us recommendations on where to eat. The wi fi signal was very weak. We would definitely stay here again.

This motel was super clean, featuring new rooms. Everyday we saw a towel in the shape of an animal on our bed. Kendra was really helpful with directions and giving recommendations for eating. Highly recommend this place to stay in PEI
