“Great hotel with excellent service”
Reviewed August 28, 2013

Our family stayed here for 2 nights and were very treated extremely well by Gail and Randy. The room was clean and spacious. Randy got the bonfire going every night for the kids (and adults) to roast marshmallows. Our kids loved the pool and had it not been for the fact that the beach is a 2 min drive or 15 min walk, they would have stayed there all day! We would definitely stay here again.

Hi Al, Many thanks to you for taking the time to share your thoughts regarding our facility & ourselves. The bonfire always seems to be a hit with everyone & a really nice way to end a busy beach or touring day. Lots of stories are shared between guests and new friends made around the fire! Happy to hear how much everyone enjoyed the pool as well. All the best to you, & thanks again! Randy & Gail

Gail and Randy are wonderful hosts! Our reservations were made with ease and we received such a warm welcome upon our arrival. Our room was spacious and very clean, the pool was fantastic and the location was perfect! Close to amenities and the beach! We'll be back!

Room Tip: full size refrigerator!

The rooms are clean. It's a 5 minute walk to the beach. There are fires every night. The owners supplied sparklers for the kids. There are swings and a small play area for kids which my 2 enjoyed. The property is large and clean and includes a heated pool which we all enjoyed. Stay here with confidence and enjoy

It is hard to believe that summer is coming to an end for another season and with that a wonderful time was spent at Lakeview Motel and Cottages. It is hard to believe that Gail and Randy Porter have owned the business for 10 years now. The improvements that they have made over the last 10 years are a wonderful improvements, what with the new deck/patio areas on the front of rooms 11 and 12, the new blacktop that was put in this season, along with the improvements that have been made since they obtained the business, you can see that they take pride in ownership and keep the business up to date. When you arrive you are always greeted with a friendly welcome, like you were old friends and when you leave they are always there to wish you a safe journey on your return to your home location. In fact I have referred several people to Lakeview Motel & Cottages and they have actually taken my advise on the reputation of Gail and Randy Porter and have stayed at Lakeview Motel & Cottages this year as part of their vacation.

Room Tip: For a single person or couple, I would recommend that you book room 11 or 12, as they are on the fro...

Hello Karen G, How right you are about another summer coming to an end, we also can't believe how quickly they pass by. This has been a great summer for us and we are indeed enjoying our 10th anniversary with our guests this year. Thank you for recognising and appreciating the hard work we put into our facility and in turn sharing it with others. We also thank you for your referrals! Enjoy the rest of the summer and see you on your next visit. Best regards, Randy & Gail

Hi
July 25-27, 2013
We stayed at this motel & cottage establishment which provided a very small town freindly atmosphere. The owners were very kind and helpful.
This place also provides access to BBQ and heated pool as well. There is a grocery store across from the Motel and just a few minutes walk to Sauble Beach. It was great.

We'll go back next year.

Room Tip: request room on second floor

The first time my husband and I spent the weekend at the Lakeview motel was in 1995. We were so impressed with the warm welcome of the owners of the motel, the cleanliness of the hotel and grounds, the pool and hot tub were an added bonus. We loved it so much that we stayed at Lakeview Motel for our Honeymoon. The summers to follow we brought all our family members to experience this home away from home atmosphere so close to the beach and everything else is so close too. The new owners Gail and Randy were just as amazing as the previous owners of the motel if not better. They made us feel like old friends they were great with our kids always smiling and so pleasant. We've always highly recommended Lakeview Motel to all our family and friends for an amazing time in Sauble Beach. Call and reserve your week or weekend at Lakeview motel you will NOT be disappointed. We are so happy to celebrate Sauble Beach as one of our family summer traditions at LAKEVIEW MOTEL.

My husband and I entered town on June 12th, 2013, via County Rd 8/Queen Street and continued to Main St., and there it was on the right, the Lakeview Motel and Cottages. We made our reservations via the Internet and understood that we were considerably PRE-Season, but were greeted with a lake view and much personal warmth, right off!

This property on Main Street is at the top of the hill about an 8 minute walk to the beach. Our accommodation was a two bedroom cottage (which is really a larger motel room with a verandah), which would accommodate 6 persons). Having visited their website, we were aware of the Rules & Regulations of the this section of the property and found them to be entirely reasonable (provide your own linens). Gail takes pains to give renters an 'original' cottage experience by haunting garages sales and antique shops for 'vintage' local cottage tchochkis and memorabilia. While the 'cottage' is in need of some updating, the owners, Gail and Randy, are in the process of doing just that. They made us feel like old friends, and provided us with a sparkling pool and use of a hot tub(which is being upgraded/replaced as we speak), comfortable lounges in the pool area, tucked in and sheltered by mature maples trees on 2 sides and the Motel/Cottages on 2 sides.

The 'Guest Lounge' offered Wi-fi , so we could keep up with our email During the Summer Season I understand that the signal is boosted and you can enjoy your computer connection at your own cottage. Cottages are individually air-conditioned and have electric heat for times when the weather is cool. Flat-screen TV was available with a fair range of stations on offer.

There are propane Barbecues available for use (you provide your own tools and do basic cleanup) and a fire-pit is put out in the early evening(after 7:00 p.m.) which encourages socializing and the campfire experience.

This little oasis is within walking distance to the Dairy Queen, Subway sandwich shop, The Gift Bowl (a converted bowling centre), the Sauble Dunes Restaurant and Bar(who's parking lot was previously the 'roller rink!'), and various clothing and surf shops. There is also an art gallery, grocery store and LCBO extremely handy. On the beach there are more food outlets, including hand-dipped ice cream, Beavertails and a burger joint.. All round wonderful location!

Room Tip: Morning sun comes in most windows. Farther off the road is quietest. Late afternoon sun hits ...

Hello folks! Thank you for taking the time to post a nice, detailed review for future visitors to Lakeview. So happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us, as well as catching up on places unseen for so many years. We always say that as much as Sauble Beach has changed, it still remains so much the same! Our seasonal business has received many upgrades and improvements and continues to do so each & every year (can't believe this is our 10th anniversary!). We look forward to seeing you again in August when you return for another visit. Best regards, Randy & Gail
