The Good
Guests typically enjoyed their stays at this hotel with the staff, rooms, location and pool with waterslide garnering the most praise.

Many guests described their rooms as clean, with updated furnishings and bathrooms. Many also enjoyed comfortable beds, finding a good night's rest in quiet rooms.

Many reviewers found the location convenient for accessing the Charlottetown Mall and nearby restaurants on foot, and the Trans-Canada highway, the airport and downtown by car. 

The staff were very well liked by the  guests who described them as friendly, helpful, welcoming, quick to solve problems that arose, and skilled at arranging tours or activities.

Many guests enjoyed the free breakfast and were pleased with quality choices of hot items.

The indoor pool and waterslide was a hit with many guests, especially those travelling with children.
The Bad
Guests did offer some negative feedback about their stays. 

The property, although seemingly well maintained and updated with better furnishings was showing some signs of aging and occasionally guests complained of carpets that were either dirty or smelled musty and which they felt should be tended to. Others mentioned the sight of mould on bathroom tiles.

Sometimes guests complained of getting a motel room (drive up room in the motel section of the hotel) when they thought they were booking a hotel room. In addition some of the rooms, although freshened up, seemed old and had small bathrooms with little space for toiletries.

A couple of guests felt it was a little too far to downtown for guests without their own vehicle as cabs were hard to get (so they said) and there was no public transit available.

Finally, a few guests had trouble with the Wi-Fi in their rooms and in a meeting room in the basement. They said it was slow and difficult to access. Guests who had complaints typically found the hotel overpriced.
