Its proximity to downtown Charlottetown makes this a good, affordable base for an exploration of the area. The rooms aren't large, but the bed was comfortable, and the bathroom was a good size. The staff were pleasant, but not particularly well trained. I don't know that I would hurry to come back, but we did have a pleasant stay.

Located in Historic Downtown Charlottetown, the Tailor Shop is perfectly situated to allow you to enjoy all the amenities that PEI's capital has to offer, all in walking Distance. A charming Historic Home, the Tailor Shop Hotel is a peaceful retreat which reflects the essence of what has made Charlottetown such a beautiful place for over two centuries. Rich wood... More

We stayed one night and found the staff polite, ready for us, and the room was great. The location is perfect to see downtown Charlottetown. We will definitely stay again as the price is unbeatable for the location. Clean and comfortable bed. Air conditioning and windows that open.

We chose the Tailor Shop Inn because of its rating and its location. Location is all it has, besides peeling paint, rotting wood, dead bugs in the window sill, hanging cords, overloaded outlets, spiders in the corner of the ceiling, crinkled plastic mattress cover, mactac on the bathroom window. The room, (Rm. 2), was on the ground floor rear with... More

Conveniently located, just a five minute walk to the Confederation Centre, this small hotel has been tastefully renovated. Rooms vary in size, and apparently,two have housekeeping facilities. Decoration is vintage and tasteful, and the bathrooms are roomy, with ceramic tile and large whirlpool tubs. Beds are very comfortable, and the rooms were very clean. There is a mini fridge in...

This older property is nicely maintained. Rooms are all a bit different—ours was nicely equipped with a fridge, sink and microwave as well as dishes—a couple of decent wine glass which is a nice touch. Staff were very friendly, and the location is very convenient to the Confederation Centre and Mack Theatre, and a number of the better restaurants in... More

We had a great little room, with really charming decor. It's a good central location, and the price was right. The only thing was that it is an old creaky slanted building and the other guests were very loud very early in the morning -- walls are like paper! Still really enjoyed our stay.

We stayed here for 4 nights during our trip to PEI. Excellent value for money. The rooms are clean and comfortable, exactly what I expected for a 3-star hotel/inn. Don't expect anything fancy, the rooms are small compared to a typical chain hotel. Each room comes equipped with mini-fridge, window AC, TV, blowdryer & iron. The innkeepers were nice enough...

Spent two nights at this lovely hotel last weekend .... loved it. Clean, comfortable and on top of it, historic! Close to the waterfront and within waIking distance of the Confederation Centre. Several decent restaurants nearby, as well. I highly recommend The Taylor Shop!

Pleasant elegant heritage place to stay at the bed is AMAZING, nothing bad to say except the free Keurig coffee is nothing special. The tv is small and way above near the ceiling but we didn't use it much just to hear the weather.
