We opted for an overnight in PE and as I had stayed at this hotel before it was a first choice.
Staff were very helpful and friendly and the rooms are good quality. We did initially think the first room we were given - a non smoking room - had been used by a smoker. They promptly gave us another room. However, it turned out that it was the A/C system which was bringing the smell of cigarette smoke into the room when it was first turned on. It very quickly cleared.
Although the hotel does very good breakfasts, it does not have a dinner menu and customers have to either use an franchise which is attached to the hotel or go out to eat. As there are restaurants within walking distance of the hotel we did not find this to be an inconvenience.
PE is a very friendly city, and the traffic appears to be better disciplined that in our area. The road systems are easy to follow, but I would certainly avoid the center of town as it's pretty congested.
We were tempted to stop there on our return journey, they have special rates at the weekend, but instead we opted to take an in land route home.
