Located in a quiet residential neighborhood, but only one block away from the main street in Charlottetown, this is an ideal location to see the town, but not be swept up in its noise or congestion. Not the cheapest place, but then again, nothing is cheap in downtown. A few other 'pros:' 1. Big room 2. Comfy bed 3. Breakfast... More

The Hotel looks newly renovated, the rooms are clean. The Hotel is in a great location. But .... We did not sleep well as the in room a/c unit was just too loud. If you are there on a cold night than I imagine this should not cause a problem. The breakfast was pretty standard, nothing to get too excited... 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

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.
