A quaint, clean place to stay in Charlottetown. The owner, Joan, is super-helpful and accommodating. A Tim Horton/Wendy restaurant is literally next door. It is centrally located, with easy access to downtown.

We found this in the AAA book. Very clean, newly painted. Has TV, WiFi, Has fridge, stove and sink all in one. Regular size table. Would be great for staying a week or more! Just wish it would have had some drinking glasses and/or coffee. No breakfast either.

I booked this motel for two nights based on the good reviews. There were a couple of poor reviews, but you just can't please 'Everybody' all the time. We found the owner to be very nice, and the rooms clean and comfortable. It's a older motel, but well kept. They have a great internet connection (23mbs+). The bed was comfortable... More

The owner is very helpful, and gives great advice. Found the rooms to be very clean and roomy, and the beds were comfortable. Yes, it is dated, but to be honest that doesn't matter much. When you are fitting four people in the room, having a small sofa and a little extra space is so nice. The screen doors are... More

We stayed here owing primarily to its availability during an otherwise busy time in Charlottetown. Joan was welcoming and amusing, as was her staff. Good people running an honest business. The rooms were a bit dated and worn, but not dirty, and the value for Charlottetown was pretty good. Location was next to a Tim Hortons on University Ave, proving... More

We called the motel ahead of our arrival as we were going to be late checking in and the proprietor couldn't have been more friendly and accomodating. The room was clean, spacious and great value for the price.

Never met the woman before, booked a room and wasn't charged the next morning because she said in her lovely Scottish accent, 'it's nice to give'. I was stunned. And she smiled and said, 'come again'. ps, her rooms were full - I took the last one. and pps, everything Ultra-Clean and Comfortable. Blessings, Joan from the author who paid... More

We go to the Island every fall and stay at the Garden Gate when we're in Charlottetown. We were there this year on Sept 23 and 24. The motel is in a beautiful setting and conveniently located to food outlets and the main street to downtown. Other comments have been that it's "old fashioned" - what does they mean? We... More

Looking back over our reviews at the start of 2014 I see I neglected to thank you for your compliments (so much for being the gracious host!). We love to have returning guests who feel so content at our place and we look forward to seeing those smiling faces again in our special year of celebration for the 150th Anniversary... More
