Amazingly friendly staff

Wonderfully central location

Most guests have loved the location of the hotel, as it is right in the heart of Charlottetown and within walking distance of many of the city's top attractions. Guests have also found that they could use the hotel as a base when exploring the rest of the island, since it is so small.

Very good breakfast

Numerous guests have appreciated the free breakfast that is served at this hotel and have been surprised by how high it is in quality. Compared to most hotel breakfasts, guests have said that this one is outstanding.

Negative Reviews

Small rooms

Multiple guests have mentioned that the rooms are a bit small at this property, even though the rooms are advertised as being suites. Guests would liked to have had more space when staying at the hotel.

Loud air conditioning units

There have been complaints about the air conditioning units being quite loud at this hotel. Guests have said that the units don't work very well unless they are turned all the way up to high, but this means that they make a fair amount of noise.

Doesn't have an elevator

Past guests have reported that this property doesn't have an elevator. This made it difficult for older guests or those with mobility issues to reach their rooms when stationed above the first floor.
