Description:

Rodd Hotels & Resorts was founded by two newlyweds, Wally & Sally Rodd in 1935 when Wally Rodd began noticing the increasing number of out-of province license plates passing by their family farm on Prince Edward Island. In true entrepreneur style, he built several cottages next to their home in hopes of attracting some of those "tourists" to stay with the Rodd Family. As it turns out the hospitality industry became the Rodd Family's first love and the family farm was cast aside with the success of the cottages and increasing number of guests returning each year. In 1954, Wally and Sally expanded their business and built The Motel Charlottetown in West Royalty PEI. Their son, David, joined them in 1966 as Executive Vice-President of Motel Charlottetown Inc. David began the expansion by purchasing a property of his own, The Queen City Motel (Rodd Confederation Inn & Suites). In 1972, he and a partner purchased the Parkview Motel in Moncton New Brunswick (Rodd Park House Inn). In 1975, a disastrous fire led to the extensive renovations and expansion of The Motel Charlottetown which was then renamed The Rodd Motor Inn.
