Located in Charlottetown, just outside the downtown area, this Holiday Inn Express and Suites offers excellent accommodations for families on Prince Edward Island. The Kids Suite is especially fun, with bunk beds and video games available. If you’re traveling with a pet, the exterior access guestrooms are nice for having immediate outside access to a grassy lawn area for pets or playing.
The indoor pool is a great place to play and the cozy lobby with fireplace and television is a great place to relax. The free breakfast and free Wi-Fi are also ideal for families. The Holiday Inn Express and Suites is less than 10 minutes from both the airport and the downtown area of Charlottetown, adding to the convenience for families.

Friendly Staff and amazingly clean. Only thing that disappointed us was no hot tub in pool area.

The Art of Smart Timing
While the hotel is open year-round, Prince Edward Island has the most visitors in July and August during the summer peak season.
The Charlottetown Airport is about five minutes away from the Holiday Inn Express. The hotel is located in Charlottetown near the University of Prince Edward Island, just outside the downtown area and in the center of the island.
A vehicle is needed if you're staying at the Holiday Inn, as it's located on a major thoroughfare. Taxis are easily accessible from the airport or in town, but the hotel will need to a call a taxi for guests.
For Mom and Dad
Adults will love the Presidential Suite. It's more luxurious than the average Holiday Inn guestroom, offering private space for parents and the kids.
