This is a place I liked, it's set up like little apartment with a living room, kitchen and bedroom but when I showed up with my bag and work boots in hand, the price jumped. I can't say that is still the case but that is what happened when I booked in there last time. It may be different owners... More

Called hotel to notify same and expected to pay late cancellation charge.

We stayed for two nights and we were very pleased as the room was a bit dated it was the cleanest room we have been in for a long time. Everything was provided for us and we quite enjoyed our stay there, we would absolutely recommend this place to our friends and family!

As others have mentioned the decor is somewhat dated; however, the cleanliness and the friendliness of the owners and staff make up for that. The two bedroom which we stayed in had lots of room. There is a nice little park setting at the back, with probably four barbecues. I would highly recommend this hotel. This is easily a hotel... More

If you can get past the 70's decor and "classic" appliances, you'll enjoy a very clean room with a great functional kitchen. This motel is very well run and you can tell there is a pride of ownership. BBQs are available outside and the location is perfect as a base to Port Elgin's southern beach (Hwy 25). Strongly recommended.

Stayed in the 2 bedroom suite with the living room and full kitchen on the 2nd floor. It was a very good value for a suite that had everything we needed and was clean. Beds were new and very comfortable pillow tops. Kitchen came fully equipped and the living room was comfortable as well. Staff were friendly and very hospitable.... More

We stayed overnight for a family function, and needed space for 4 adults and 1 baby. We had originally booked the 2 bedroom suite, but when we arrived, the manager was very kind and showed us several suite options. We ended up booking the 2 bedroom suite with a full kitchen and sitting area. One of the bedrooms had a... More

Nice Weekend coming up? then decide at the last minute to call up Sand Castle for a weekend stay. Will enjoy the having a hotel room that has two separate rooms with the beds in and still a little cozy couch, coffee table, end table and TV section to watch the news while others are sleeping.

We decided to book at Sand Castle Motel because of the the apartment style suites. Upon entering the place, there was a funky moldy-like odour mixed with plug-in deodorizer smell. Most of all, we couldn't help seeing how dated the motel was. The hallways had minimal lighting with the bad odour lingering there. We had the 1 Bedroom Deluxe suite... More

From the moment we arrived we were made to feel at home. Bob showed us several suites available. We chose the one that suited our family needs. The apartment style suite was perfect. The beds were comfortable. Very clean and affordable. The kitchen and living room were nicely decorated and fulfilled our needs. Nice to have a full size fridge... More
