While the motel operators are friendly and helpful, the motel itself is in serious need of upgrading. It IS clean, but don't expect too much luxury. We were influenced by the fact it was rated #2 in Sauble Beach, but if such is the case, I wouldn't want to see the others! A few examples: Front doors are flimsy and... More

Lakeview is located conveniently right across from a grocery store, beside the LCBO and a 10 minute walk at most to the beach/stores. Our room was extremely spacious and clean. We had great use of our enclosed sun porch and the fullsize fridge came in handy. Our room had 2 beds,dining table, as well as a couch. Perfect size for... More

We had a great stay at Lakeview - thanks Gail and Randy! Our mini end-of-summer getaway with the kids is destined to become an annual event. Gail and Randy are super hosts; friendly, attentive and caring. Our Queen/Double room with pull-out was very clean, quiet and well-kept. Any extras we needed were readily available.

There was probably a lake view forty years ago when this motel was built, but there really isn't any more. It is, however, clean and comfortable for our one night stay. Only two bath towels, two hand towels, and two face cloths for a room with two double beds is a little skimpy. We thought it would be noisy as... More
