Located in Charlottetown on Prince Edward Island, just outside the downtown area, Rodd Royalty is one of five Rodd Resorts on Prince Edward Island. The pet-friendly hotel is less than a 10-minute drive to both the Charlottetown Airport and downtown Charlottetown.
Open year-round, families will love that kids 10 years and younger stay and eat free. Kids are also welcome to golf for free at any Rodd resort along with a paying adult.
Kids will love the 105-foot waterslide and indoor pool at Rodd Royalty, and parents will love the large suites that can fit families of five or more. The two-bedroom family suite features bunk beds, and the loft suites are bi-level, making them feel even more spacious.

There are a great selection of rooms with more than two beds at Rodd Royalty that can sleep between two and eight people. The 119 guestrooms and suites feature many variations, but all of the rooms feature a mini-fridge and microwave. Connecting rooms are available and cribs and rollaway beds are available for a fee. DVD players are available upon request.
One or two queen beds are featured in the standard guestrooms. An exterior, drive-up room is also available where guests have direct outside access and a dedicated parking space in front of the room.
The two-bedroom Family Suites can sleep eight people. Two queen beds are featured in one bedroom and bunk beds are featured in the second bedroom. A sleeper sofa can be found in a separate living room area, along with three televisions.
The Executive Suites feature two queen beds and a living area separated by French doors, where a sleeper sofa can be found. Two televisions are also featured in these suites.
The bi-level loft suites feature a sitting area with a sleeper sofa downstairs and two or three queen beds upstairs in the loft.
For the price we paid, we expected a dive. Much better than that. Very clean, modern, friendly. My only complaint is that we were at the end of a hall and the exterior door in the hallway was loud whenever someone used it. We would definitely stay with RODD again.

I booked the room using BOOKING.COM and got an unheard of low low price. The room was fabulous to say the least, living room with french doors leading to the bedroom. Magnificent sleep and an absurd amount of pillows. Very clean inside and out. Had a late dinner in the restaurant and Kyro was very nice, dinner was great. Would definitely stay again !! Just wish the first person we saw at check in would have smiled and made us feel welcome .. she was not friendly at all.
Indoor Pool and Waterslide
The indoor pool is open from 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. and kids will love the 105-foot waterslide. The enclosed waterslide winds around on the exterior of the building and then drops kids into the indoor pool. Chairs surround the pool deck and pool towels are provided.
Families who remember to let the hotel know they will be traveling with children will find a children's welcome package in their room upon arrival. A Frisbee, sand bucket and shovel and coloring books will keep kids busy and entertained. Several board games can also be found in the lobby for families to play during their stay.
