5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

We stayed in this hotel for just one night, September 27, 2012. This hotel was very nice! The rooms were large and the bathroom had a separate sink area to the shower and toilet. There was a hall with a bar which looked like it could accommodate a few hundred people. The pool was in the basement with a sauna and change rooms. To the other side of the pool was a sports bar that had pool tables and slot machines. There was a long hallway in front of all the rooms which meant your front window peered into the hallway. That was a bit weird. The staff here were very friendly and accommodating. The restaurant looked very nice but we did not eat there.

You have a very beautiful province which you should be proud of and that includes your hotel hospitality. Thanks for a great visit. Wish we lived closer so we could visit more often.

We booked online late in the evening and mistakenly used the wrong date (the current one instead of the next night.) Called the hotel in the morning and they suspected the mistake and did not charge us for having reserved the wrong date and being a no show. We did not expect that our room would have a full kitchen. We used that to take advantage of cooking after buying some great food from the Farmer's market. Staff very friendly. It was nice to have a free, hot breakfast in the morning.

2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

me and my hubby decided to take a night away, called the dutch inn and got the honey moon suite for 175.00 plus taxes for a total of 202.00. we thought , why not! free parking, free hot continental breakfast,swimming pool, jacuzzi in the bathroom big enough for 2 adults, free wi-fi, and a 3 room suite air conditioned.

when we arrived , i was very excited. i noticed when we pulled up that some room doors were outside while others were inside. it looked as if it used to be a motel turned into a hotel. i didnt care, but i was curious. so when we checked in , i asked the gentleman behind the counter, was this a motel at one time. he said, hotel , motel what is the difference? i said motel room doors are normally outside , while a hotel you need to go inside to get to your room.he said well we have a restaurant and pool, its a hotel. so i just said ok. then he said, do you need to see your room? and i replied "no, why". then he said well you seem to be quite negative about this!!! i said no its fine, i was just enquiring! i felt offended. i dont know why he became so defensive. it was just a question.

we went to our room,which was quite hot. we turned on the air conditioner but it didnt really make the rooms colder, just a small area. the flatscreen in the living room had no remote, and it was hooked up through a vcr to get the cable, there was no remote for the tv in the bedroom and the wi-fi did not work in the room. we notified the front desk about all this. he did find us a remote for the bedroom tv.

things we did not notify the front desk about.
hair in the shower, scum on the tiles of the jacuzzi,several large cobwebs on the window,and the breakfast while free was awful. there was no coffee,the sausages were burnt 1/3 way through, the pancakse coulda been used for hockey pucks,the homefries were so hard you couldnt get the plastic forks through them and the scambled eggs tasted unusual. it wasnt hard to tell that since 7 am when it was cooked, nothing had been refreshed when we got there at 830am. so the breakfast was disgusting.

on the bright side, the bed was comfortable and the pillows were fantastic. and after the first misunderstanding with the front desk clerk, he was quite friendly.
the pool seemed clean and the water was nice,even though they were giving swimming lessons til 8 pm!

other than what i mentioned, i thought the room was tidy and clean in general.
had a fridge and coffee maker, with only 2 pouches of coffee (however we were able to get 2 more pouches when we asked)iron and board,large bathroom with a small stand up shower and 2 person jacuzzi.the bathroom was really nice, cept the hair and scum.

all in all i would not pay 202.00 to stay there again. they shouldnt say free wifi if the signal is so weak you cant get it in the rooms. we were in the first room past the front desk and could not get signal.

We had to change hotel when we got to Charlottetown (because the other one was in very bad shape). I hesitated to stay here, based on the reviews, but I am very happy to have chosen this hotel. The price was good. The rooms where very clean. The pool was HEATED and clean. The breakfast was good and hot. It is a little far (10 minute drive) from downtown Charlottetown but who cares the fun in PEI is to drive around. We would definitely consider staying there again.
