Great location at the beach. Great food. Great service. But need's a little loving. Had an early dinner at the Cover Room. Five of us in total. First timers. We were seated at this huge table in the middle of the room. Salads and veggie trays started arriving as soon as we were seated. Waitress came right over and took... More

Good things first! The location is excellent- right in the middle of things, parking onsite and free, flowers and landscaping very pretty, restaurant onsite, beds quite comfortable. Not so good things! Very old, noisy A/C clunking away, not the best smell in the room or hallway, layout of room odd (bed shoved right up against register), lack of amenities in... More

My wife and I enjoy coming here every year. The Erie Beach takes you back to a time when life was more relaxing. The rooms are very basic yet comfortable and clean. The grounds are well kept and colourful in the summer. The beach and shops are all within a short walking distance. Staff are friendly and attentive. Main floor... More

Desiring a touch of nostalgia, we celebrated a birthday at the Erie Beach in Port Dover. Nothing truly changes ... Time almost stands still .. Salad offerings on the table were delicious , especially the pickled pumpkin, and horseradish jello . Famous perch dinner : perch was delicious Mashed potato absolutely tasted out of a box ... Awful.. Fresh Vegetables... More

That the hotel has been around for 70 years is obvious and quaint! ...the rooms were open, airy but difficult to get to - we either went outside or thru the dining room... The staff, especially Andrew, were very friendly and helpful, including helping us get our bikes in and out of storage, answering many questions etc etc. On our... More

The Erie Beach Hotel has been around for an unbelievable 70 years. I have been travelling there from my city a few hours away about once or twice a year for over 35 years to their restaurant. I have never stayed at the hotel for lodging. There are multiple different style rooms in the restaurant. My favorite restaurant room is... More

Where to start? The motel boasts that it has been operating for 70 years, unfortunately, the rooms apparently haven't been updated in this period of time. They are depressing, grey-painted wood panelling, no clock radio/alarm, no coffee machine and extremely noisy. Salad carts line the hallway outside of the main floor rooms. These are rolled out before 8am - perhaps... More

How a ramshackle old hole like this was rated 31/2stars is beyond me. Butt ugly grey panelled room with no coffee, no bar fridge, tiny tv with 3 channels, no movie channel, not even a clock in the room. So noisy that a decent sleep was impossible. Lots of salad bar carts stored in the hallway; noisily rolled out at... More

We got lucky because of a cancellation & had a room on the 1st floor facing Walker Street. The hotel is older, but well maintained, although if you have a problem with stairs, etc. I'd suggest you reserve a room on the "main floor" as there's no elevator.

Good location near the harbour with plenty of parking close-by. We ate lunch in the terrace restaurant. Staff very friendly, tables nice and big and not pushed close together, good comfortable surroundings.
