An absolutely fabulous family friendly motel. A great location, quiet low key atmosphere, minutes away from Cavendish attractions with super friendly and accommodating staff (Becky was fantastic). We were party of 31 all were 100% satisfied. We highly recommend this location, if you plan to be in the area.

The motel was clean and the staff were friendly. The bed was VERY comfortable. I was a bit disappointed when I checked in and the front desk person didn't seem to know much about the area, especially about the restaurants. Cavendish isn't a "walking" area so you can go out and explore on foot and it was still off season... More

We enjoyed our stay at the Bay Vista Motel. This is a quiet location with a row of rooms adjacent to the office and some additional two-unit (duplex like) units where we stayed. This is an excellent location in Cavendish from which we launched our tour of the island over a two night stay. The unit was nice and clean... More

We chose this motel based on Trip Advisor so thanks to everyone who writes a review. We used Bay Vista as our 'home base', staying there for a week while we explored beautiful Prince Edward Island. We had a basic motel unit with fridge and microwave. The beds were comfortable and the bathroom had recently been remodeled. Extra bedding was... More

Spent two nights here during the long weekend and we very comfortable. It is very close to the main road (that has sandspit, restaurants etc) but is far enough away that you can really enjoy the calm of being on vacation. The people at Reception and in the Continental breakfast area in the morning are absolute darlings. We spent 15... More

On arrival we were welcomed by a great view of the bay and a sign of oyster farms. On top the ladies at the office gave us maps and some pointers on the beaches. Stepping into our room showed a really clean area with extremely comfortable beds! Much needed after a 7 hour drive I rely recommend this motel

We stayed in this lovely hotel last night for our only night on PEI. I wish we could have stayed longer! We were in rm. 27 which was clean and roomy with the most comfortable king bed I've slept on in a loooooong time. The host was friendly and helpful. We were so glad we decided to stay out in...

We had a room in the back, behind the office, facing some trees. We had asked for a quiet room and it was! The good sized room was clean, well equipped with a frig and micro, and had a couch we could sit on and relax. The bathroom, although small, had a nice shower. The staff was friendly and we... More
