Do not waste your time shopping for a place to stay, this is the spot. The price is 40% of overrated hotels downtown, the rooms are larger newer, cleaner and quieter then there. Laundramat on site, garden, a charming Gazebo and free parking. We have travelled worldwide and never have received the service anywhere at any hotel we received here....

Excellent motel- close to all amenities as well as Highland Bagpipe College. Staff very helpful- even delivered ice to our room. Laundromat is a nice touch. If you are looking for a home base while exploring the island-this is a good bet.

Spotlessly clean, Sumptously comfortable, Enchantingly landscaped, Obligingly hosted, Perfectly located...and bargain-priced. --Believe it!. Owner-managed by a young couple, Aaron and Kendra Wedge do it all- and, they do it just right!...It feels just as nice as being home! I will go back again in the summertime.

I am originally from Summerside, and bringing my family to Cairns motel made me proud to be from Summerside. Aaron & Kendra were friendly- and hilarious- and I always enjoyed our morning chat over complimentary coffee at the front desk. At the end of each day, we'd get back to our room to find that not only was our room...

Cairn's is a wonderful motel. We have stayed there at least 3 summers in a row. They are very friendly and helpful. I love getting a room near the end so that the kids have the big parking lot to ride their scooters on. Plus, they can run in the grass and go for a walk behind the motel. The...

I can't say enough about this hotel. When we pulled in on our Harley, the owner, Aaron, actually came outside to compliment our bike. We asked to see a room and quickly realized we had found a "gem"! Clean, clean, clean! The owners, Aaron & Kendra, can't do enough for you. I believe they're meant to be in the hospitality...
