Very clean and quaint place to stay, close to beach🏊 and shopping 👜. I felt very safe and "At home" feel. This is a favorite place of mine to stay when travelling to Port Elgin in the summer ☀️ This motel books fast so be sure to reserve early! 👍 .

We had a basement room # 112, as price is lower than the higher floors. It is 2 bedrooms and kitchen, which is very good for families with kids. The room is clean, though don't expect luxury, but for few days ok. There is full size fridge, stove, microwave, coffee maker. 1 king bed in each room. Price was 109/night... More

Upper floor , great suite, very helpful staff, everything you need in family holiday hotel. Great as central point to day trip or even a just 1 night stop over. Clean and well maintained. Great price and value. Ask them about best spot to watch the sunset.

Our group stayed here for a weekend. It is a motel that is used during the week by workers at the Bruce Power plant so it has all the amenities of home. The fridge actually got cold and worked. The suite we had was cozy, not overly large but for the price it was good. The queen sized bed took... More

What a fantastic little gem of a place! The exterior isn't much to look at, but the suites are both cozy and roomy with everything that you need to be comfortable. The kitchen has all the utensils you would need to create a home cooked meal. All you need is to bring groceries. The living/dining room is cozy and comfortable,... More

As soon as you step into this motel, you can smell stale cigarette smoke. This is supposed to be a "non-smoking" motel. While our room was clean it reeked of old cigarette smoke. The owner(s) know this because the air fresher used during cleaning was overpowering when we entered the room. The walls and ceilings have all been covered with... More

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. Bob the reservation manager was extremly accommodating and waived the mandatory one day charge and we received our credit accordingly. Will... More

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
