Always admired the manicured lawns of the hotel for years but had never stayed until we decided to for a night in early May. The rooms are quaint and were clean and neat. But like with many older places the noise travels between walls and from the hallway. Happened to be some noisy folks that the management apologized to us... More

Girlfriend getaway in Port Dover. Our room was on the second floor - a bit of a hike for anyone older with mobility issues but we managed just fine. Room was clean, bathroom was spotless and the air conditioning was fabulous. I was pleasantly surprised that the area is so quiet after 8pm. Slept like logs!

Hi, my mother Lynda and sister Shelley have been coming to port dover for many many years as a girls get away. My mom loves the food and scenery from the Erie Beach Motel. Though the motel rooms are small, they do the trick just fine as you should only be in your room when relaxing, sleeping or watching tv.... More

We stayed at this hotel for one night...and were prepared for the type of accommodation due to the reviews that had been written. Our room was Motel style (old motel, not new motel) But it was clean and the carpet looked relatively new. the beds were decent, so we managed a good night's sleep. There is definitely an odour when... More

The straight goods right off the top... it's one of the few hotels in Port Dover and the building itself is from the 40's. The room (at least the one I had) is not large, not extremely well appointed, and certainly not fancy. With that, I give it a 4 out of 5. Not compared to all others, but to... More

I was on a bus trip going to see the Christmas Lights at Simcoe ON. We had a preplanned stop at the Erie Beach Hotel. We were welcomed by the cheerful staff, they already had our tables set up with the yummy salads, we helped ourselves to the salads and they brought hot celery bread to the table, after they...

First time in Port Dover and wow were we surprised to walk down a very smelly hall way and into a huge room that was also smelly and old. The carpet was worn, we would not sit on the chairs cause they looked very used. I brought room fragrance which helped but we spent a lot of money at this... More

The Erie Beach Hotel is a blast from the past, mostly in a very good way. Rooms are basic motel, fairly recently painted, bathroom a fairly new update. It has to be said that the furniture, although very solid, is pretty hideous! Dining room furniture features 1950s very solid wood chairs. The dinner menu continues the theme, with dishes that...

Gross Motel, Very limited, they call themself a hotel. Carpets havent been cleaned since the 1940's. You must walk through the dining area to get to your room. My friend and I bought fabreeze because we couldnt stand the smell everytime we came into our room. I would NOT recommend this overpriced place.

The restaurant portion of this establishment, specifically the "Cove Room" has been serving many of the same menu items for over thirty years. Having experienced different culinary establishments throughout North America, and Europe - I wouldn't change a thing at the Erie Beach. Did you ever notice that excellent dining establishments are generally managed by (a) good management, (b) good... More
