The Cairns motel was just right for our trip through the Atlantic Provinces. While the outside looks like a typical roadside motel, the room was completely up to date. Our room, #17 had two Queen beds, a HDTV, fridge, microwave, table & 2 chairs, and an arm chair. The room was spotless, the bathroom was quite large equipped with a... More

Such a nice peaceful place. Spotless rooms with a good tv and wifi. Really nice owners who really care about your visit. Hope to visit again! Very close to the sea. Convenient to everything on the island! Definitely cleaner than my own home!!!!

This was a last minute phone call for a reservation and we were lucky to get the last room. The room was rather small but fit our needs for one night. The owners very accomodating and allowed us to park our motorcycle under the overhang out of the rain. Another plus was the laundry, great location, great people.

Stayed here for two nights while on a cycling trip to PEI. Motel backs right onto the Confederation Trail for easy access. Room was well appointed, and the staff very friendly. Each night the towel was folded into a different animal shape. Nice touch! Only downside were that the walls were a bit thin and you could hear the neighbours,... More

We stayed for 4 nights at Cairns and have absolutely no complaints. Our room was the perfect size for the family and our small dog. The owners are kind and welcoming, the staff we had the pleasure of meeting was also very friendly and the kids loved the animal towels :) The property and rooms are clean and well maintained....

Exactly as described. Nice small motel, very clean and friendly staff. Close to all in Summerside and still close enough to all other attractions, great home base for us. Owners on site so everything is looked after immediately. Would for sure go back.
