We stayed for an entire week at this delightful motel - the rooms are very large - they come equipped with a microwave and fridge, and there's a nice little counter. Our room had two queen beds - the mattresses were wonderful - just like sleeping at home - there was a table and two chairs, plus another chair -... More

This motel was clean and simple. The décor was a little outdated but that didn't really bother us. They provided us with 2 adjoining rooms for our family of 4. One room had a Queen and a bathroom with a nice shower and the other had a Double and a Queen beds as well as a smaller bathroom. Both rooms... More

We were looking for a reasonable place to stay for one night in Summerside and this motel fit the bill. Nothing special, the room was small but clean. Neither too expensive nor a bargain, but it was high season. Check out the confederation trail, just off the motel grounds, for a nice morning (or anytime) walk or jog.

- one of two motels we stayed at in Summerside. We had 2 queen beds in the older part of the motel. The room was very clean and I liked the way the furniture was placed, as it made the room appear more spacious. Staff was very helpful with requests. The grounds were well-tended and attractive. We walked to the... More

We only stayed one night but we only have great things to say about Cairn's Motel. The room was extremely clean and the service was great. The beds were very comfortable and we were greeted by a dog made out of towels which was really cute. We would highly recommend this motel to anybody.

We arrived way earlier than the check-in time but decided to check if we were able to chec-in anyway. We were warmly welcomed by Aaron and said we could have our room but since it was being cleaned at that time to come back in half hour and gave us the key. The room was very clean and spacious.

We are a young family of 3, with one on the way. We were in Summerside for my sisters wedding in July 2014 and stayed at Cairns for 2 nights, it was excellent. Being 7 months pregnant in the heat and humidity, their air conditioning was perfect for me! Small cozy room, very clean, very friendly staff. Rooms seem up-to-date... More

Located right on the main drag but not in the busy section. Quiet and clean, just what we wanted for overnight in Summerside. Room was on the small side but comfortable. Grounds were very well kept, amenities in the room were up to date.
