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 were looking for a clean, quiet, comfortable place to sleep. It is exactly what we received. Sure, the rooms are old fashioned but everything works and is clean. Beds are comfy.

We stayed a week in this charming CLEAN little motel & although it is an older style of accommodation, we were so comfortable with a fridge, microwave & table & chairs.

We stayed two nights at Garden Gate Inn. It's conveniently located off University and a short drive to downtown Charlottetown. We had a room with two double beds and a futon, this didn't leave us with much space in our room to move around in. Bed was comfortable but the shower was uneven. The room is dated but clean.

The futons provide the option of an additional sleeping berth in a couple of our rooms (which is especially appreciated by families) however, they make the configuration of the other furniture hard to deal with - we will continue to work on that. We do appreciate your comments and that you took the time to write. Next time you come... More

This little Charlottetown, P.E.I. Motel is a Gem! We stayed 2 nites ***BUT***we were on the lower level in the new building at the back of the property.

You're not the first one to fall in love with our suites - wish we had more of them. They seem more spacious because they only contain one bed instead of 2 like most of our standard rooms - certainly the bathrooms are bigger. Thanks for listing all the benefits of our location.

Thank you for the compliments and for staying with us - hope to see you again. The Inn, for its age, has been a long standing landmark in accommodations in Charlottetown-other family operated businesses have disappeared or been converted to rentals; ground level entry with your car parked at the door with a landscaped area to enjoy is becoming rarer-there...

We stated 2 nights in this motel and our experience were okay. Owner is nice and friendly.

The inn is easy to find and in a great location...on one of the main arteries into (and out of) the city but is tucked away from the road so you don't hear any of the traffic. Once you pull of the road you are in the country setting, not next door to the big box stores. Our room was... More
