Arron and Kendra are excellent hosts, this was our third trip to the island and we wouldn't think of staying anywhere else. The motel is quiet, the other guests are friendly and many an evening chat has happened while enjoying the well-manicured grounds. We booked 5 nights on very short notice and they were able to accommodate us. My wife... More

While our options for lodging on PEI's western side were limited because we started looking late, Cairn's Motel came up on TripAdvisor as available, well priced, and had really good reviews, so we booked 3 nights there. There was a little confusion about the type of room we booked, which was cleared up in a subsequent phone call. I'd initially... More

Very clean motel with comfy king bed. The friendly couple who own it have obviously done a lot of work to make this a great stay. We stayed two nights and used the laundry facilities. Access to Confederation Trail was a bonus. Rooms had new carpet and building was in very good shape. Towel animals after room made up was... More

We were told about this place while travelling through New Brunswick. Glad we did! Charlottetown was booked and it was impossible to find a hotel on short notice. Since we weren't sure where we would end up each day it was hard to book ahead. Cairns motel is in Summerside. It was clean, welcoming, friendly and you can tell the... More

Stayed here during a motorcycle trip to PEI with friends. Motel is very clean, beds are extremely comfortable and coffee is available in the office after 7:30am every day (a muffin or piece of fruit would have been a welcome addition to the coffee though). The price is very reasonable. Location is close to the downtown area of Summerside and... More

After just arriving to Summerside on July 21st, 2015, we decided to look for a motel. My husband remembered driving by Cairns Motel so we turned around and stopped in. We were greeted by the very friendly owner. She showed us a room (room #11) with a queen size bed. She told us that it was a little smaller but... More

We stayed here for two nights during the Rod Stewart concert in Cavendish. We found the motel while searching Trip Advisor and, even though we usually stay at larger hotels, we took a chance on The Cairns. We were very glad we did. Two things to note about The Cairns Motel: Aaron and Kendra (the owners) are absolutely wonderful; and... More

Better, nicer, cleaner and more-up-to-date than a hotel we just stayed at in Charlottetown that cost $50 more per night! Totally handicap accessible, great hosts that are very friendly and knowledgeable, newly renovated and very reasonable. We will stay here again!
