"Not a nick in the paint, not a thread out of place!" to quote my husband who has the eagle eye. I have never heard him ever in 20 years RAVE about a motel...this one he did. As the 1st guests of the 2017 season, Kendra and her husband only had a few rooms opened as they were working on...

Spent 5 nights mid October with family, which included 2 teenagers. Had adjoining rooms which were perfect, very spacious, spotlessly clean, with microwave and fridge. Cannot fault in anyway. Fresh coffee during the day in office if you need it and just down the garden is access to the confederation walkway which is a lovely walkway. Also so close to...

We stopped in looking for a long term stay. Unfortunately, they were closing for the season soon and unable to accommodate our family. BUT, this place is super clean and the lady was really nice and helped us out by suggesting a couple of other places that we could try. Will definitely recommend the Cairns when we have friends visit...

We stayed two nights at Cairns. It is easy to find in Summerside and very welcoming (complete with cute towel "sculptures"). The room was very clean and comfortable. As we visited in October, it wasn't too busy and not noisy at all. The price was more than reasonable. Cairn's offers access to on-site laundry which we didn't use, but many...

Greeted by the owner who was very pleasant and accommodating. She even gave me a chance to see the room before paying. Spacious and exceptionally clean, quiet with lots of walking areas including a gazebo for sitting out in the fresh air. We have been touring Nova Scotia, Cape Breton and PEI for about (3) weeks and this is the...

We only needed a room for one night and the welcome centre at the bridge referred us to this one. Very clean and spacious rooms. Welcoming clerk in the office, very helpful to direct us on where everything was in the city. A nice quiet sleep, no traffic noise. Even a laundrmat located within the motel. Would definitely stay here...

My experience of this hotel was absolutely dreadful. DO NOT go by the positive reviews, since anytime there is an actual PROBLEM, dealing with the owner is a nightmare. I'm sure if there AREN'T any issues that pop up during your stay you would never know, but if you have ANY concerns?? — expect to be rebuffed and treated like...

The Cairns Motel was a really pleasant surprise. For the price we expected a nice room, but we both said "wow" when we walked in. Very modern with lots of convenient details. On-site laundromat. We stayed 2 nights and used it as a base to see the western part of the island. Only downside was had to go to the...
