We were pleasantly surprised to find this reasonable hotel in such a great location - walking distance to the Confederation of the Arts, etc. Rooms had a boutique hotel feel - we would definitely stay there again!

A modern hotel close to the water and the busy streets of Charlottetown, yet far enough away to be quiet. Very welcoming and happy to take time to talk about their town. Our room was small, but that wasn't a problem. Although there was only one bedside table for a double room with one bed. The bed was very comfortable,... More

I stayed at this hotel for couple of nights, and, when checking out, forgot my jacket in the room. A couple of days later I contacted the hotel, let them know about the problem, and they sent me my jacket through Canada Post. Long story short - I haven't received the item due to Canada Post's screw-up, and had to... More

This hotel is within walking distance to downtown amenities, and parking is free. We stayed here for the one night. Our room was a two bed double room, which was clean and modern. Unfortunately our room had a very noisy air conditioner unit, which we had to turn off over night, luckily we didn't have the humidity with our stay... More

If you plan to spend your days in Charlottetown hidden away in your hotel room, you may find the room a bit on the small side. However, for everyone else looking for a location downtown, the Hotel on Pownal is an excellent choice. Inexpensive, clean, great service and great location. Was perfect for my business trip to Ch'town. Would definitely... More

The hotel has free parking and is conveniently located for the downtown area. When we visited they were operating a green policy; opting out of room cleaning gave a $10 discount voucher at several local restaurants.
