“Certainly not a bad place, but.....”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

Nice hotel with a top notch staff. The pool is nice and clean, the hot tub is also nice and clean. I love the sea doo rental right at the door. My only rant is that I upgraded my room to one with a deck and a separate bedroom, the deck is nice, with a good view, but the room came with a little tube tv in each room and you had to watch the same channel on both tv's. it's not much of an issue for the most part, but as I walked through the hotel I noticed that the other rooms had big flat screens mounted on the wall. The only other problem I had was that the bedroom section of the suite didn't have a/c. The living room section was nice and cool but even with the bedroom door open, the bedroom was warm the whole time.

We loved Inn at the Pier, but you must be aware of this caveat: Be prepared to book one of the (more expensive) suites. We had originally booked a regular queen room. When we walked in I was SO disappointed. It was dark, not updated, facing the traffic from the road, and worst of all smelled really stale. Our experience on PEI would have been completely different had we stayed there. Luckily, there was a queen suite facing the water available, which, of course, was more expensive, but made all the difference. It was roomy, spotless, inviting, and had a private deck overlooking the water. Whew! The wait staff was very friendly and helpful and the food was convenient, good quality, and pretty reasonably priced. They use local vendors for the seafood and it was tasty. We didn't do the water activities. Pretty expensive. I really liked the location which was just far enough away from the circus of Cavendish itself.

Room Tip: Ask for a suite facing the water or prepare to be very disappointed.

Location was good, close enough to everything yet far enough away from most of the tourists. Beds were very comfortable. Rooms were quite large, same with the bathrooms. continental breakfast was decent and FREE! we didnt do any of the water sports as it was too cold, though not sure if $100 an hour is worth it for a ski-doo rental.

Other than a bit of rudeness when attempting to book over the phone (we ended up booking online instead to get a better deal), the staff was friendly and very helpful. they recommended a lobster restaurant in New Glasgow which wound up being one of the highlights of our trip.

Two issues i had:
- The room we booked advertised itself as a 'water view room'. we thought this was great as we could enjoy the sunsets from our room. however, 'water view' in this case meant across the parking lot, across the highway was a small oyster farm pond. when you book a room on the ocean that advertises itself as water view and this was you end up with... well, we felt a little cheated, seemed like they are intentionally misleading you.
- no fridge in the room, though not a big deal, we just found it odd as most hotels now offer this. had to throw up some leftovers from the previous night

Room Tip: if you want ocean view make sure to ask for ocean view, as water view will get you a view of the par...

Our time at Inn at the Pier was so wonderful. It was the perfect location for our time in the northern shore of the island. We stayed two nights and I would have stayed a whole week if I could have. The staff we hospitable, the food was delicious (both dinner and breakfast), the sunsets are breathtaking, the views are spectacular, the room was spotless and spacious. We enjoyed several dips in the outdoor pool and a soak in the hot tub, so wonderful.

Don't hesitate, there is nothing else better than Inn at the Pier! Perfect location for touring PEI National park, Cavendish, Green Gables, Summerside, etc.

Lacked organization! The place looks wonderful, the lady at the front desk was very welcoming but after having booked the sports package a month prior, they weren't ready. Once all settled, the experience was amazing. We tried the 800' parasailing, with the sea-doo rental and kayak rental. It was just unfortunate that it was limited to the bay and that we couldn't venture out.

We stayed her for two nights in a king suite and I would definitely stay again. It was very clean and spacious. Staff were very friendly and breakfast was included with our room. It was a perfect location and close to everything we usually visit.

The lady at the front desk was wonder, very friendly and accommodating, the room was nothing more than any motel room, rate was a bit expensive. Rooms very clean, but basic . The girl at the front desk also cooks the breakfast (found this odd) if you want a hot meal,( basic bacon and eggs only) .
