Great price, spotlessly clean, quiet, newly renovated rooms, well kept grounds, wireless, good location, and friendly, helpful owners on premises. The best place to stay in Summerside.

This is the best, small motel at which I have ever stayed, and I have traveled quite a bit! In fact, I think it is better than many larger, chain hotels, and it's much less expensive, too! The personal touch by the owners, Aaron and Kendra, just can't be beat! They are very accommodating, friendly and provide a beautiful, clean and comfortable motel for their guests. We were fortunate to find this gem on PEI. We had originally booked three nights at the Comfort Inn in Charlottetown, but we were so unhappy with the bad experience there (dirty carpet, dirty sheets, room smelled, terrible customer service) that we cancelled our third night and moved on. We wound up in Summerside two nights later and feel fortunate to have found the Cairns Motel. We liked our first night there so much that Aaron and Kendra worked it out for us so that we could spend the rest of our vacation there (four nights)! Thank you, Aaron and Kendra, for a very pleasant and memorable experience.

We were very ,very, happy to come across this motel. It is clean, affordable and comfortable. The couple that own the motel are super friendly and couldn't be more accomodating. The grounds are beautiful and it is very peaceful. We were visiting the island for the first time and had plans of staying at a different spot each night. After our first night , plans changed. We did day trips and returned (home) each night. We were very comfortable and happy to be there. It is handy to everything and a great place to stay. We were fortunate enough to meet a wonderful couple from Michigan who have been coming there for nine years. It was like family there. We too will be returning . I would recommend it to anyone.

My wife and I were touring the maritime provinces of Eastern Canada in May of 2008 and came accross this motel, privately owned and operated by a lovely young couple. The rooms were spacious and clean. The grounds were well kept and the neighborhood quiet. The management did everything possible to make our two-night stay plesant and comfortable. They helped us find the many nice eating places nearby along with other directions to places of interest.

I highly recommend the Cairns Motel. We first stayed here in July 2007 and had such a great experience that we returned this year.

The rooms are modern and spotless. The grounds are well kept and beautiful This motel is great for families with children.

Aaron and Kendra are wonderful, friendly people who make you feel at home. We plan to return next summer.

Just returned from my fifth (5th) stay at Cairns. I would not consider staying elsewhere and have already pre-booked my stay for 2009.

Everything is lovely, just as the pictures on the website appear, no surprises here.......as for the hospitality of the Management and staff...well...did I mention this was my 5th year at Cairns!
