“Good stay in a nice rural location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2013

Stayed 2 nights of longer trip. Selected this place as it was outside of Charlottetown (notorious for heavy traffic and lack of signage), but still central to everywhere on PEI.

This was apparently the Dutch Inn before Hojo took over, so architecture is resort-singular and not cookie-cutter. A little confusion at check-in as they had me down for 2 rooms, caused by online booking snafu. Otherwise only real complaint was lack of a TV lineup in room, and all the desk suggested was using the painfully slow on-TV guide (housekeeping didn't have copies?).

The plusses:

Booked a queen room, but found it was a very roomy mini-suite, old but clean and very-well appointed. Wide-screen TV sat on divider between bedroom and parlor, and easily swivelled to be seen from either.

Room included a kitchen with cooking area and cabinets, plus larger than usual fridge. Very good in-room coffee and a real mug. Many available receptacles. Internet was quick and reliable at all times.

Bedroom window could be opened, including a view of a farm right next door, with a herd of cows chewing cud in the afternoon sun only fifty feet away - this just a couple of miles from C'town.

Hotel has a restaurant and lounge, where bar grub is available and tasty. Decent hot breakfast in the restaurant included in price.

Overall, a very comfortable and convenient place to stay and use as a base to explore the island.

1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 August 2013

We stayed in this hotel for one night only! Carpets were so dirty we would not take our shoes off. There were holes in the walls behind the door and in the bathroom. Linens were ripped and stained. We slept on top of the bedding. A/C vibrated all night. Grout and caulking in tub were filthy or non existant. The carpet outside of the hotel was filthy and the hallways smelled like stale body odor. The room wasn't much better. I wrote to HOJO International who referred my complaint to the manager who thinks I must have been mistaken, that HOJO sent the complaint to the wrong hotel. This was the only room we could get after they tried to put our party of four into a room with one bed. Should have slept in our car! Seriously!

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else.
