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...

This motel is very clean and they allowed my dog at no extra charge. The room was drive up which is great for taking my dog out to the bathroom. Staff was very friendly and take pride in giving good service. Also very affordable.

We arrived at this location last minute due to conditions from another hotel. From the minute staff greeted us we felt important. They had a room left for us to book but before registering us the young lady at the desk showed us the room. It was immaculate, large and very comfortable. When I asked how much it was going...

We were very qpprehensive about booking a room in a smaller motel and not one of the bigger chains. However, it turned out to be a very fortunate decision. Sparkling clean, friendly staff and all the amenities associated with high end hotels at a much more reasonable price.

Once again the reviews on TripAdvisor helped my family find an excellent place to stay! The staff at Cairns Motel is very friendly, the rooms are spacious and super clean - a darling towel animal awaits you too! The location is quiet and central and the price is reasonable. The Cairns Motel deserves the 5 star status!

This is the cleanest place we have stayed in ever!!!! We have been in 4&5 star hotels that weren't this clean. Effective use of space to include fridge and microwave. We were in room 20. Very comfortable beds and fresh smelling pillows. WE WOULD RECOMMEND THIS PLACE TO EVERYONE AND THEY TAKE DOGS!!!

We found this great little motel to be clean, quiet, well kept and very comfortable. It is in a convenient and easy to find location. We appreciated the clean laundry facilities with not one, but two washers and dryers and a long counter. A great value overall for the low price.

After a long drive, my husband and I arrived in Summerside PEI late in the evening, and were not sure where to stay. After reviewing many positive comments on the Cairns motel, we decided to check in. What a cute, spotless clean, and cozy motel. It was very reasonably priced and close to the downtown. I would definitely recommend, and...

Right on waterstreet in summer side, the lady who runs it is very very friendly and nice to talk to, opened up the door to our room and the towels were folded up into a little elephant, just like down south on a resort! Room was cozy and clean, a nice little gazebo on the property to hang out and...
