Was looking for a place to stay overnight in Summerside. The 2 main hotels were way over priced. Went back to the Cairns to check price OMG 1/3 what the others wanted. Great motel, clean room, newly renovated and family run. Why would you go any where else? If you want a clean, comfortable room at an unbelievable rate, stay... More

Comfortable well equipped room with mini fridge, microwave and wonderful pillow top mattress. We found it centrally located mid point on the island, convenient for daily scenic drives. Room including the bath was immaculate.

This hotel is a convenient point from which to explore the central, west and north parts of PEI. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, and the owners pleasant and accommodating. Easy access to the highways, walking distance to the Confederation Trail and about 2 km from downtown Summerside. The room warmed up incredibly in the heat of the day,... More

We just happened to stay the night here on our travels around PEI. Nothing fancy, but very clean and reasonably priced. Easy to find along one of the main roads going in to Summerside. The couple that runs the place are hard workers and very interesting if you get the chance to visit with them. Breakfast is Tim Horton muffins... More

My fiancee and I decided to go on a little trip for this past May long weekend and wound up at the Cairns Motel in Summerside, PEI. The owner Kendra was so friendly and helpful. We had the lowest rate that I've ever seen. We liked it so much that we stayed a second night. Our room was spotless absolutely... More

Just finished a 4 night stay at the Cairns Motel. It was very enjoyable. The facilities are immaculate, the bed is comfortable and the innkeepers are delightful and very helpful. I will be sure to make this a regualr spot in my travels.

We stayed here for a weekend in September 2012, booked the two end rooms, as that was all that was available when we turned up unannounced. We were here in the off-season, and were a little disappointed in the lack of open restaurants to choose from in Summerside, but have no complaints about the hotel! I chose it based on... More

This Mom & Pop style property has been very well cared for. Our three night stay with our miniature dachshund was very comfortable. The room was impeccably clean, spacious, and appointed with modern furnishings and décor. There were a number of nice extras in the room such as a fridge, microwave, and table to eat at. Toiletries were also provided.... More
