We stayed 3 nights in one of the newly redone rooms, garden view, and highly, highly recommend this motel. For our two week trip this gets our highest rating even with the lowest anywhere cost. Adding to comments by others, the room had been completely redone including the bathroom, flat screen tv, artwork on the wall, crownmolding, great colors, comfortable new beds, new microwave, new refrigerator - nice touches not often found. The owners have really good taste that makes for a pleasant stay.
Although no breakfast was provided at least while we were there, this is no problem. Just go to the grocery and get the basics of a continental breakfast and use the microwave and fridge, there is coffee/tea in the office. If you usually have a cooked breakfast, do the usual and go to one of the diners nearby.
As to location, Summerside is about 20 minutes from the Confederation Bridge. Charlottetown is about 45-60 minutes, but PEI is about 140 miles long so regardless of where you stay you will do a fair amount of driving if you want to also see the east and west ends. Summerside is a reasonable compromise, and you will save a bundle compared to staying in Charlottetown.
Summerside is also reasonably close to Cavendish, the "Anne" houses and site, but the musical play is done in Charlottetown.
Thanks to the owners for a great stay
