I was a little nervous but the hotel was great, the staff very helpful and friendly (had some great restaurant tips), check-in and out was a breeze, nice continental breakfast, the free... More

This hotel offers most everything a traveller could want: nice accommodations, great location, and friendly staff. The complimetary Continental Breakfast had a terrific selection of healthy and fresh food and I took advantage of an Island Beach brew at their "Evening Guest Reception". The bed was uber comfortable and there were no "noise" problems. Price is reasonable. Will definitely stay... More

In an online search for a place to stay in Charlottetown, my wife and I lucked into The Hotel on Pownal (THOP)! From the moment we arrived, through our 9 day/night stay, to the (sad) moment we departed for home, the staff, the food, the service, the amenities and the comfort had us both agreeing that it's the nicest place...

We were made very welcome by reception, after arriving in a downpour. Our room was fine, and it was good to have a laundry room, after touring for 8 days. Location was excellent, everything was within walking distance. We enjoyed the continental breakfast, coffee and tea that was available all the time, and a pleasant glass of wine or beer... More

There is no need for a car here but just one FYI there are NO local buses running on Sundays...well, pretty much everything shut down... More

Thank you for posting your Hotel on Pownal experience on this site. Our location is certainly a great starting point to explore our small historic City. Only minutes away from theater, shopping, Victoria Park, and the waterfront, yet located right in the middle of Downtown. What better way to be green than to park your car and forget it. Though...

I am happy to say our stay on July 5th weekend was very comfortable. There was some mix up with the double bed but front staff was very accomodating and went out of their way to provide all the options we can explore. We were provided extra room which was very nice gesture considering whole PEI was booked for music... More

We recently stayed here for 2 nights. The room was not overly large but we were just sleeping in it. The lobby is very welcoming and we really enjoyed the reception hour, wine and local beer were available. And the breakfast was very filling. We opted for the green package which gave us a $10 gift card to a choice... More
