Hotel on Pownal is affiliated with the Great George and shares similar amenities plus the same excellent service attitude. We stayed there for the second two days of our Charlottetown visit after spending the first two at the Great George. The H.o.P. is more of a motor hotel property, the room was clean and comfortable, but I am sure room... More

Excellent hotel with very friendly staff, who go out of their way to make your stay perfect. The location couldn't have been more convenient---within walking distance to theatres, restaurants ,shopping & historical sites. Comfortable beds & an excellent breakfast with lots of variety. We have stayed in many hotels in PEI & this was one of the best.

This turned out to be the perfect hotel for me in regards to quality, staff and location for the event I attended. I booked a Queen suite for myself and was very pleased. Aveda toiletries, duvets, cotton sheets, flat screen TV, a Keurig in the room, large closet with iron board, cookies and coffee in the hotel lobby. The breakfast... More

I'm sure we stayed at the best place in Charlottetown. The hotel was very modern with exceptionally friendly staff and a great location. They have fresh cookies baked until midnight and the breakfast had many homemade tasting items such as granola and muffins. We stayed just one night but could have stayed all week!

We stayed here last summer for a few days. The hotel was clean, room was comfortable and breakfast was impressive!! Probably the best included breakfast I have had at a hotel. Had a real boutique hotel feeling and great service!!! Will definitely return again soon.

We just visited PEI and stayed at this gem of a hotel. It is definitely within walking distance of many restaurants as well as the downtown area. The hotel staff were fantastic by offering great advice on where to eat and directions on how to get to different places. They even offered umbrellas for our use on a night that... More

Nice place, centrally located. Breakfast was good but we've seen more variety in the past. Staff are friendly and helpful. The free drinks between 5&6 during the week is a plus. Would stay there again for sure.

The Hotel on Pownal (pronounced PAWN-L) is structured with the convenience of a motel where you can drive right up to your room, but is much higher end than your typical motel. There is no pool or fitness room. The staff are friendly and helpful. The rooms are very clean. If you forgo room service for a day, they offer... More

Thank you for your review and your recent stay with us. Our location is certainly very convenient. As you have mentioned, the Hotel is just one street over from the busier part of Downtown. I am glad you were able to take advantage of our, "Greener is Cleaner" program. Receiving a $10 coupon for foregoing Housekeeping services certainly is a... More
