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!

We actually stayed in July 2013 but it won't let me choose that. The owners of this motel are fabulous, friendly people who care about their guests. The room was clean and neat, they built little cloth animals for us each day, and the location can't be beat. Only thing we noticed was that the washroom was slightly small for... More

My wife and I really enjoyed or two planned days, lengthened to three days primarily because this gem of a motel was so comfortable. Kendra was so friendly and helpful, we used the Cairns as our base as we day-tripped to various close by attractions: Cavendish and Victoria by-the-Sea. Our room was spacious and very clean, we also liked the... More

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.
