“Cheap attitude, a tourist black-eye”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 September 2012

We rented a cottage here some time ago, and until hearing of another's experience, which they can write-up for themselves, held off this review. The facilities are average for the cabins typically offered for accomodation on PEI. However, we were actually given a brief, shall I say, 'lecture' on my asking for a couple of rolls of toilet paper! On arrival, there wasn't any extra in the cabin, just a partial roll, which went quite quickly for us and our 2 kids. I couldn't believe the cheapness of the owner, who asked stupid questions trying to fathom how we could've used all of the paper in so short a time! This minor pettiness almost ruined our stay, which was thankfully only overnight. After I was informed of another's similar experience, I now wonder: does this province charge a premium on this commodity? Beware those with intestinal issues, bring your own, or be prepared to get a lecture on "excessive" usage....

Clean, cozy and well equipped cottages; perfect for this family of four with two young teens. Friendly, knowledgeable innkeepers, beautiful riverside views, cute ice-cream shoppe steps away, onsite laundrymat and - blessedly - a small air conditioner, providing some relief from the Island's summer humidity. A perfect base for exploring PEI's East Coast.

Rained out from camping and needed a place to crash for a night with our dog. Although the website says 'no pets' pets are welcome. Laundromat on site - everything very clean and comfortable.

Very friendly staff, check in/out very efficient.

Great place to stop if you need a place before the ferry!

My wife, baby daughter and I stayed here for one night as a stopover on our way to Les Îles de la Madeleine. The owner/receptionist was nice. The room was nothing wow but clean and had what we needed (including a free playpen for my daughter). A bonus for us was the on-site laundromat which we made good use of as we had already been travelling for a few days and needed to wash up.

The major negative with this place is its location. First off it's situated in Montague. Other than the trans-Canada trail (directly beneath the motel), we didn't see anything particularly interesting in the village (although there is lots of fast food places and groceries nearby which is useful). The second problem is that the motel is on the edge of a trailer park and it wasn't that nice.

Another odd thing was the bible quotes on the wall - we could have done without those!

In sum: a good place to refuel but not stay for a long period of time.
