“Pretty but what's that smell?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2010

The room was large and convenient to unload our gear into but there was a musty smell in the room that made one feel unclean. The room appeared clean, the beds neatly made, but the smell was difficult to overcome. Also the carpet felt as if it had been soaked and had dried into a stiffer fabric (?), if that makes sense.
The person working the front desk was pleasant but could not really direct us to a place to eat late in the evening as she said she was unfamiliar with the town.
The waffles we purchased for breakfast were great but service was very slow as they had only one cook and one person delivering the food to the tables while also having to cash customers out in between.

Stayed with our hockey group over the weekend. Had my wallet stolen from our vehicle in the back parking lot. In hind sight should not have left valuables in car. There is a camera in the back parking lot but it is apparently pointed at the pool & is only activated by movement. Unfortuately the person gained access from the treed area that did not require them to go infront of the camera as there was no camera footage. Hotel staff did not seem like this was something out of the ordinary. Hotel itself is clean but could use some updates. Breakfast was good. Good coridor for the kids to have some freedom to play. Recommended but leave no valuables in sight!

This was the 1st hotel we stayed at in PEI. We stayed in the main part of the hotel and not in the drive up units, if you get a drive up unit asked to be changed to the main bulding. The hotel offered very good service, a pool, excercise room and a unique but humbling interior. Recommended for anyone staying in Summerside.

I stayed there for one night for a quick business trip.

The place is well located in Summerside. The hotel is nice, the staff was very professional, polite and helpfull. Didn't had time to explore all the installation. The room was nice and well equiped.

On the down side, I found the room dusty mainly because of the old and loose carpet. I had problems sleeping because of allergies probably caused by the dust. They should remove the carpets and replace them with a wood floor. Also the hotel restaurant (in a separate building) closes early (9PM). I had to drive around town to find a place to eat because I found nothing nearby.

Stayed here for business, little did I know there was a hockey tournament going on at the same time. I was in one of the drive up units. These have a door connecting each room. Let me just say "paper-thin" doors would have had better soundproofinig than these. I caled the front desk to voice my complaints on the 2nd night of my two night stay and they were unwilliing to do anything about the noise. I went to the front desk and got a refund for my 2nd night and I am now writing this review from my new lodging, Canada's Best Value Country Pines Inn. It was $40 cheaper and only 5 min outside of Summerside and much better, see my other review.

Had the opportunity to stay at Quality Inn a couple of weeks while working in the Summerside Area. I found the room to be quite clean and comfortable and had a great night’s sleep each night. Staff were very friendly and efficient and this makes all the difference in the world when you are on the road so often.

We recently stayed at this hotel. Check in was efficient with very friendly staff. There was a large nicely decorated courtyard which was great for to sitting and relaxing. The rooms were clean and well kept. It was quiet and the beds were very comfortable which provided for a restful sleep. The coffee shop served the best fresh waffles with berries in the morning. We will be going back for sure!!!
