Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 7, 2012

My husband and I made a last minute decision to go to Port Elgin on Friday morning and needed a place to stay for the long weekend, but only required one night (Friday). The person who answered was extremely efficient and took my reservation right away (they only had 2 rooms left) and I received the confirmation a few minutes later, which is pretty good. This motel is perfect as it's very close to the beach we go to which is 5 minutes down the road. They offer a hot breakfast the following morning, so it was a good deal. Mind you, they are a bit more expensive than the other motels in the area, but worth it if you want something clean, comfortable and quiet.

Great motel, great breakfast, 2 pools are great, great location. Love this place - we stay here every summer. Kids love it here. Close to the beach and downtown. Sunsets are beautiful in Port Elgin - love Lake Huron.

Room Tip: poolside rooms are awesome

We are regulars every summer and are never disappointed. Very clean rooms and surrounding and friendly staff. The price is a bit high but the great complimentary breakfast more than makes up for it. The motel is continuously being upgraded in all facettes and nothing ever looks run down. This time we noticed that the room furniture had been changed including a new tv's (flat screens)

Room Tip: Pool side costs a bit more but is well worth it

Hotel was good, had a indoor and an outdoor pool, not a bad little workout room. Room smelled a little mildewey, but overall was clean and fairly well appointed. had a fridge, microwave, coffeemaker, wifi. continental breakfast was good, eggs and sausages and bacon, waffles, yogurt, cold cereal, the usual, so you can refuel with hot food to start your day. we were on the second floor. the hotel had a bunch of wedding guests staying, and it was still nice and quiet in the room. front desk staff were friendly. located right on the highway, easy to find. was close enough that both nights we stayed, we zipped down to the beach to watch the sun set. terrific. would have no hesitation in staying here again.

We stayed for two nights in July 2012. This motel is well kept and the staff is friendly. The breakfasts are above average with hot items available. It is well maintained and both pools are very clean.

There are plenty of motels in the area but the others are privately owned and are very sketchy. This is really the only option if you are fussy about accomodations.

It is expensive but then accomodations in Ontario are very expensive overall.

Room Tip: Ask for one of the recently renovated rooms.

My friends & I have been staying at the Port Elgin Super 8 for a week in July, for several years.
Their tasty, full breakfast gives us a great start to our day. Our room is clean & has all we could want or need. The pool area tables & lounges are a very nice touch. Trevor & staff spoil us completely!
To us it's "Paradise close to home!"
Bonnie F.

Room Tip: Rooms beside the pool are very handy, if you like swimming or lounging in the sun.

My husband and I recently traveled by motorcycle from Chicago thru Ontario. I think by the time we got to the Super 8 in Port Elgin, we had spent 3 nights in different hotels/motels that were way over priced and, well, downright dirty/scary. Of course, when we did our trip, we didn't realize that it was Canada Day weekend, so our options for accommodations were slightly scarce. However, when we rolled up on the Super 8 in Port Elgin, we had already rode close to 500 miles and it was past time to get off. We had stopped at several places along the way to stay only to find they were booked. Super 8 was WONDERFUL. The staff were Super friendly and the room was exceptionally clean. I wanted to stay another night there just because! If we are ever in the area again, we will definitely stay at this place, and would highly recommend it to anyone. We have stayed at a few other Super 8 motels in the states, but NONE of them come even close to the one in Port Elgin. Compared to those, this one was like Trump Towers! Outstanding job to the entire staff!
