“Superb and Highly Recommended”
Reviewed 3 October 2011

Aaron and Kendra were most welcoming and helpful with restaurant advice and attaining dinner theater tickets. The room (#18) was a pleasant surprise as it was very clean and large with a very new spacious bathroom. We stayed for three days and each day looked forward to seeing what kind of animal towel masterpiece would greet us. The laundry facility was convenient. We enjoyed a walk along the Confederation Trail located just behind the motel and admired the well kept landscaping and gazebo. Great location with easy accessibility for our daily excursions on the Island. It was a pleasure to stay at this motel and we felt that Aaron and Kendra set very high standards of service and cared about their patrons.

Tired of paying for amenities you don't need? Just want a clean, quiet, safe room in a hotel with excellent customer service AKA people who genuinely care if you have what you need and enjoy your stay? This is the place for you plus laundry facilities plus great location. No breakfast, but Samuel's Coffeehouse takes care of that. Most hotel breakfasts aren't that great anyway and although they're "free" they are, of course, built into the price, making you feel obligated to eat them. Instead here you get the price of the room for the price of...the room!

We booked two rooms at the last minute and could not have been more pleased. Aaron and Kendra were most helpful and welcoming. The room was clean and large.

Room Tip: We were in a room in the new section which was a nice distance back from the road.

Upon entering the motel room, instant newness. Clean and sparkly. Big bathroom and bed area. Excellent internet. Reception was friendly and helpful. There are not a lot of motel like accommodations in the atlantic provinces. This one was a refreshing stay. Also a gazebo out on the lawn with nice lounge chairs.

My husband and I just came back from vacation in PEI and stayed at the Cairns Motel, again. We stayed one night last summer, but extended our stay this year. Aaron & Kendra are to be congratulated! This is a great place to stay! The rooms are spotless, with great personal touches (towels sculptured like an elephant on the bed), wonder how they do it?! You are made to feel welcome and both Aaron & Kendra will go out of their way to help accommodate their guests. We highly recommend this motel, and plan to come back next year!

I have stayed here several times and consistently excellent service and wonderfully
comfy beds, great TV and as always exceptionally helpful, kind staff. It is the kind of "home base" that;s worth the drive from the other points on the Island.
