Easy walk to downtown, nice accommodations, friendly staff and a pleasant eating nook where coffee and tea are always available plus a continental breakfast in the morning. Beds and linens were the best ever, so comfy for a good night's rest.

What better way to have a vet student class reunion than to share memories and reflect on how things have progressed. The Hotel on Pownal certainly has come a long way since its previous life as the Islander. Improvements have been made in every area with attention to detail given wherever you look.

I travel frequently to Charlottetown for business and the stay at The Hotel on Pownal is always a highlight.

This hotel is the reincarnation of an old motor lodge, a very stylishly done. The location is good though it seemed a bit out of the way, but in reality it was only a few short blocks away from restaurants, shops and the theaters. Our room was tiny and the air conditioner was terribly loud but it was clean and... More

Spent a night at this hotel and really enjoyed the stay. It is very clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The free breakfast had a good selection of food. The rooms were very clean and bright. A great location for touring the downtown area in Charlottetown and handy for the airport. Would highly recommend this hotel.

During a recent 10-night stay, I discovered what a gem this hotel is! My room was very comfortable – impeccably clean with top-quality mattresses and duvets. Because I have special dietary needs, I’d anticipated being restricted to fruit and coffee at the complimentary breakfast. However, I was delighted to be offered dairy-free / wheat-free bread and muffins, boiled eggs and... More
