The Hotel on Pownal

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The Hotel on Pownal was ideally located, both for exploring PEI and Charlottetown. Parking is free, which is a big bonus, and the walk to downtown is only a couple of blocks. For runners and walkers, the hotel provides card-sized maps/routes for 2.5k and 5k distances, which took the guess work out of my run through and unfamiliar city. The staff was friendly and helpful, and the hotel provides a free happy hour with local beers during the week. It also provides a $10 voucher good at several local restaurants for each day guests declined room cleaning services. Finally, the rooms were quiet and comfortable, though they are no-frills. Perfect for sleeping, but they might not be what you want if you plan to spend a lot of time in the room. I would not hesitate to stay there again.

Very nice room, free breakfast. We were able to walk all over town from this central downtown location.

Stayed only one night but had a very pleasant stay. The room was small but very clean. The hotel decor was very modern and staff were all super friendly. Had a room on the back side with no deck/balcony but it was so quiet you could hear a pin drop. The breakfast was fine - juice, tea/coffee, fresh fruit salad, yogurt, boiled eggs, mini quiches, cold cereals, toast, bagels, muffins, cinnamon buns. The hotel is in a great location and within walking distance of the Confederation Centre and almost everything else. Would definitely stay again.
