Stayed here one night. Bed was hard and floor was uneven. Room was clean but pricey. Needed more (or better quality) pillows. TV worked but only if you flipped the light switch on. Owners are pleasant to deal with. Would have to be hard pressed to book a night here again.

It is easy to miss if you do not know the area. It is on Highway 12. I booked here because it had very good reviews, and I needed to test the waters, so to speak. I was not disappointed. From the time of meeting Donna at the reception desk to the time I entered the room. It is very... More

Stayed for the weekend in this great little roadside motel. Room was small but very clean, with a comfortable bed, little fridge and coffee maker (and decent coffee for it!) Bathroom had obviously been recently renovated with a very nice little soaker tub and updated sink, toilet, and flooring...and again, super clean. Certainly would recommend this quiet motel to anyone.... More

We stayed at the San-Man for two nights along with two other couples that were attending our daughter/son in laws wedding celebration. It was perfect for our two night stay. We stayed in room 5. The rooms are small but are SUPER clean. The room had a coffee maker and bar fridge. Our friends rooms were identical except for the... More

This was our second time staying in this very clean quaint motel. Our family prefers staying in these type of family owned motels, rather than big chain hotels, and we were not disappointed. The rooms are immaculate. The motel sits back from the highway so you get a quiet peaceful sleep and do not hear anything from the adjacent rooms.... More

We spent two nights at the very economical San-Man Motel over the Canada Day. The owners are very welcoming and friendly. Rooms are basic, but spotless. It is on the highway and not right in Port Perry, but we didn't mind that as Port Perry is only minutes away and the motel is far enough off the highway that traffic... More

Spent 1 night at this lovely rustic motel. The room was spacious, two double beds, fridge, wireless internet, coffeemaker, A/C, 15 minutes to the Casino if that is of any interest to you and 5 minutes to Lake Scugog. FYI, all rooms are non-smoking and NO PETS allowed. It was very quiet, we were well received at the reception desk.... More

We stayed here in January. The place is spotless. Cleanest motel I have ever stayed in! The staff were very nice. It was very, very cold outside but the room was lovely and warm and quiet. Really enjoyed our stay. And the price was incredible. The only downside is the rooms are very small.

We were very surprised at the accommodations. It qppears as just another small town motel with no special features, from the outside. The person at the desk was very congenial and efficient. Once we got inside the room, we were very pleased at the cleanliness and neatness. It was apparent that the upkeep and maintenance was first class. Although the... More

Colleen and I were visiting Port Perry during Victoria Day weekend for Aunt Judy's family reunion...what a party! Knowing we wanted to stay overnight, the San-Man Motel was highly recommended and I know why. A lovely motel; set-back from the highway, plenty of front door parking, small rooms but all the necessities you need (quarter size fridge, coffee maker, TV... More
