There has been some cosmetic updating but sadly the motel needs a major overhaul. Room was clean. However the plumbing is still very stretchy. Toilet was old and was stained. Staff at the hotel are pleasant. A/C is very noisy - sounds like a plane taking off when it starts up. Tavern is now closed.

This place is a huge disappointment!!!! It was once a decent place to stay in but it has gone down hill over the years and lack of care investment in keeping it clean and updated are very obvious. During a recent stay, we found the room to be dirty, the bathroom toilet looked unclean, there was a broken soap dispenser... More

The rooms are dated decor-wise, and it is a standard old motor inn. We took over several rooms for a funeral this week, and the rooms facing the water were clean, with good mattresses. The ability to gather outside on the patios and visit with others was wonderful. The air conditioners were no noisier than most motels that I've stayed... More

I have stayed here a few times because its the only place in town to stay and I think its taken advantage of. If one major hotel chain came into town this place would be out of business in a matter of months. It is old dirty and so outdated. The bed had a cigarette burn in the sheets, cobwebs... More

We heard Duffy's was a good place to eat. We ate on the patio overlooking the marina and river, nice view. Ordered the daily special and a veggy wrap. The special was grilled salmon - it came overcooked, a bit crusty on the edges and dry, no flavor and the size of an inner palm. A simple dish of basically... More

Duffy's has been around a long time and unfortunately it's slowly feeling its age. We took a room there on a recent visit to see friends, and while the room was clean, it was pretty run down (e.g. the thin blanket had holes, the decorative pillows were frayed with stuffing coming out). Nothing really bad, just numerous things that make... More

Duffy's Motor Inn used to buzz with activity on weekends when their dock was open. There were lots of boats and guests. Now it's a shadow of what it once was. The rooms are in serious need of updating: peeling wallpaper, old carpet... It is beautiful setting along the Detroit river and next to the park. Have been there for... More

The beds aren't great (small doubles) and you're liable to run into smokers on the patio, but the location right on the Detroit River in beautiful Amherstburg pretty much makes up for it. Stroll in the adjoining King's Navy Yard, enjoy some nice restaurants outside the door or walk up to Fort Malden. The pool is quite good, but be... More

Never stayed in the hotel and only have come by boat from Michigan. Have been going here to eat for 30 or more years. You cannot beat the fish dinner -perch fish dinner or cole slaw. Top it off with a pitcher of beer and you have a fine meal. Has a strong local following in both the states and... More
