I originally booked this because it was available (most others were filled) and relatively affordable.

Upon arrival, the outside of the building concerned me a bit. It looked like an apartment building or dormitory. But after registering, which was quick and efficient, we were VERY pleased with the motel itself.

They put us on the first floor as requested. Room was spacious, well appointed, clean and comfortable.

Our room had two full beds; two leather side chairs; a table; dresser; refrigerator (no microwave); desk with chair; and flat screen TV. Wi-fi worked well with both laptop and iPhone. Linens were clean and not heavily worn. Bed was comfortable. Pillows were tolerable as they are in most motels but nothing special. Carpeting was clean.

Bathroom was clean and well cared for. Both toilet and shower were separated from vanity area by a door.

No insects were seen and while my sense of smell is poor, my lady friend (who can be quite critical) says room was fresh, no odors.

Laundry room was a bit isolated at the bottom of stairs, lock. Opened with room key. I did a load and the machines were good, price reasonable. But let someone know you'll be on there. In an emergency, nobody will hear you because of its location in relation to the rest of the hotel.

Breakfast was excellent: scrambled eggs, sausage, fried potatoes, pancakes, selection of toast, bagels etc. milk, juices, coffee etc. The ladies who work the breakfast room are friendly, cheerful, helpful. And they are a lot of help too so don't forget to leave a dollar or two tip.

Desk staff, housekeeping and everyone else we dealt with we're friendly, helpful and efficient. We didn't use the pool so can't comment.

We've been on the road for over a month in both the U.S. and Canada from California to Winnipeg to Pittsburgh to Charlottetown and we've stayed in a ton of motels from many of the larger chains. This is once of the best in terms of the room, the breakfast (many are just cold, dry and not worth eating so I head for McDonalds). Needless to say, I recommend this place and would gladly stay here again.

I'm pretty well surprised but HoJo is alive and well in the hotel business.

As an additional observation, it seems to me that many people writing reviews of various places expect the amenities of a four/five star hotel...the ones costing $300 a night and up... In a $100/$125 motel. Can't happen, won't happen. We all have motel horror stories but for us, this WAS NOT ONE OF THEM. Had a GREAT stay.

The room had just had the ac fixed after being down and the room was still at 26 c at 11 pm took till the morning to come down to a comfortable level of 20 c. The beds were older and felt lumpy. The carpets in the room were heavily stained from pop and coffee. Windows do not open screens are ripped and falling out. Continue into Charlettown for a better room.

Booked this hotel for three nights while visiting PEI- great location, large clean room with fridge and hot delicious breakfast. Very close to downtown charlottetown. On highway, but very quiet. I booked the Super 8, which is next door for another three nights, but this one was better.

Room Tip: Try to get room on first floor - no elevator
