Carleton Motel & Coffee Shop
Ranked #1 of 1 Hotels in Borden-Carleton
Reviewed July 27, 2011

I recently stayed at this establishment and I was very impressed! I had read the reviews before I booked but went for it anyway. Sure it's not a five star hotel but it isn't a five star price either. The service was excellent and the staff very friendly. The rooms were clean and we were given permission to use the full grounds. Efficiency units were available as well as barbeques. Adjoining rooms were also very convenient!

We stayed here for 1 night before a week long biking/camping trip on PEI and it was recommended because it was located so close to the start of the ride. That was pretty much the only thing it had going for it. The room furnishings were old, like vintage 70's maybe. Considering the age I guess they were in decent shape. The woman who checked us in was not helpful and it appeared she just wanted to get it done as quickly as possible so she could back to whatever she was doing before we walked in the door. We asked about breakfast the next morning (the front desk is in the coffee shop) and she gave us incorrect info on when it would open. Either she didn't know or didn't care, either way, it was annoying.

This motel is about 2km into PEI once you cross the Confedration Bridge. One of the first places to stay once you enter. Boy are these accomadations basic to say the least!
I'll recap my room: Very small springy uncomfortable bed on wheels (a cot i believe).
A dirty chair sitting in corner of room, no desk, table, etc, to put your bag on. Dead hornet on top of my bed was a nice touch. Compact fridge sitting in another corner, which by the way doubled as the TV stand.. and oh, there was no remote control for the T.V. Washroom: no counter to put shaving bag on, had to put on floor, just a tiny sink. This room also had no air conditioning, so you had to leave the window open, problem is noisy trucks zoom by the motel constantly (Potato trucks?), it is on the Trans Canada Hwy after all. Needless to say i did not get a good nights sleep, dingy blankets didn't help either, but oh, they did provide a fan in place of the AC (Arrgh!). It was cheap at $69, but believe it or not, that was overpriced! The sign on the door actually says $50 was the most that could be charged.. oh well.. next time i would sleep in my car rather than stay here... there are some beautiful cheap motels in Summerside 15 minutes a way.. but they were all booked. My recommendation: if this is the only place you can find, then sleep in your car or a park and save your $69.... one last thing, the "Coffee Shop", was closed when i checked in + out, so i can't comment on that.
