I have eaten at the Erie Beach hotel so many times, I have lost count. This old establishment is quite dated, but is clean and exceptional in it's service and quality of food. Seafood is it's speciality as is the the various condiments that are classic to the menu, such as celery bread, pickled pumpkin, homemade pies. You have many... More

Check in was swift and pleasant Room was small but comfortable. Bed was great. Served its purpose. Location is great. We ate dinner in the restaurant which was good. I liked the salad cart. I would stay here again unless a new hotel with modern amenities opens up in this area.

I suppose this hotel is quaint, but it lacks many things a decent hotel should have. The TV is tiny, there is no clock/radio, no mini fridges, no in-room coffee maker, no hand lotion, no hair conditioner and I had a hard time getting the heat to go down. I practically got cooked on the first night. (The second night... More

This is an older property that was built in the 1950s. It was clean and the bedding was good. We stayed on the second floor at the end of the corridor. The WIFI was too weak to use in that location. I had to go to the lobby to use it. The staff was friendly and helpful. There are limited... More

We stayed over at the Erie Beach Hotel for one night, and were very happy with it. We paid a little extra for a larger room with a view over the waterfront, and it was worth the extra dollars. The room was clean, and the bed comfortable. It had a fridge to keep necessities cold! The reception staff were friendly... More

Our hotel room was on the second floor which you accessed by walking up a flight of stairs. Our room was very dated but clean. There were no extras in the room..no coffee, fridge or microwave. Breakfast was available in the dining room but wasn't included in the room charge. The free WiFi wasn't working. It was very noisy being... More

Central location close to everything.... restaurants, bars and beach right outside your door. Street noise (people/motorbikes/cars) did not bother us but may bother some people. Hotel provided a inside space for us to store our bikes; we really appreciated this as our bikes were our transportation to Port Dover. Very clean room and friendly staff. Basic and simple, all we...

We were in Port Dover August 15th on a weekend get-away with no reservations, just go where we want to go, stay where we would like to stay. We didn't know that the Jazz festival and Art in the Park were happening this weekend. So when we asked for a room all were booked. We asked if they knew of... More

Very clean, not updated rooms. If you don't like stairs ask for the lower level. Checking in was easy and pleasant. Room was fine takes you back to a simpler time. Nice place to stay for the beach at Fort Dover. I would not recommend it for families necessarily as it is quite small only 18 rooms. They have a... More
