Just finished a 4 night stay at the Cairns Motel. It was very enjoyable. The facilities are immaculate, the bed is comfortable and the innkeepers are delightful and very helpful. I will be sure to make this a regualr spot in my travels.

We stayed here for a weekend in September 2012, booked the two end rooms, as that was all that was available when we turned up unannounced. We were here in the off-season, and were a little disappointed in the lack of open restaurants to choose from in Summerside, but have no complaints about the hotel! I chose it based on TripAdvisor comments, and my family laughed, until we got there, and they were impressed with the nice rooms, and the towel origami. we had a lovely, memorable trip to PEI, and can't wait to go back!

This Mom & Pop style property has been very well cared for. Our three night stay with our miniature dachshund was very comfortable. The room was impeccably clean, spacious, and appointed with modern furnishings and décor. There were a number of nice extras in the room such as a fridge, microwave, and table to eat at. Toiletries were also provided. There is a lot of green space at the motel which is convenient if you are traveling with a pet. A basic, but nice selection of pastries, coffee and juice was offered daily. The free Wi-Fi connection worked very well. The room rate was incredibly affordable at $69.95/night for the off-season. Overall this was a pleasant, lovely stay and we were sad to leave PEI.

Summerside is a great place to stay on the island as it has a number of eateries and other services to choose from. Cavendish (Green Gables) was only about a 30 minute ride from the motel and Summerside is the starting point for the North Cape Coastal drive which is beautiful. A tip for the off-season - if you plan to do the North Cape Coastal Drive bring some food with you and/or plan to stop in Alberton as there's not a lot open outside of Summerside. In three nights/days we were able to sightsee about 40% of the island. Would also recommend bringing bicycles to enjoy the Confederation Trail – which can also be walked. The motel is also a quick 10 minute drive from the Confederation Bridge which is convenient for travel weary travelers looking to get to their destination.

Stayed three nights, Kendra and Aaron where most helpfull with helping us in organising our sightseeing. Room very clean, spacious and well equipped. The laundromat on site was great and the dryer very efficient. In all a great place to make a base for exploring the area.
Great quality, PS Was great to come back each night and find a different towel animal on the bed.

Kendra greeted us and was most helpful. The room was clean and nice size, the fridge and microwave gave us nice options for snacks and beverages. This place makes a great base for exploring and attending Ceilidhs in the area. The bike/hike Federation Trail runs along the back of the property making it easy to get some miles in without being on the roads. Coffee in the morning in the office and Kendra was a real resource about the area.

Not much to add to the hundreds of glowing reviews, other than the fact my experience validates them all! Amazingly clean room, very comfortable bed, basically you get 5 star quality for $60-$70......absolutely incredible! Aaron is an exceptional down to earth & friendly host, keep up the great work you truly have something special here & you should be very proud! P.S, love the origami towels, rabbit on the bed, penguin in the washroom :)

We stayed 3 nights at this fantastic, super clean, well kept comfortable motel; Friendly Kendra & Aaron take superb care of their guests; rooms are well equipped 2 queen beds, microwave, fridge and lots of extras including a great laundromat. Just 20 min from Confederation Bridge and centrally located to all the great spots on the Island. After spending over 2 weeks on our road trip this was the best deal - bar none!!! We'll go back for sure!!
