“Good Spot, Steadily Improving”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

This is my wife and I along with another couple's fourth year back to the Village Comfort Inn in Prince Edward County. We keep coming back to this inn because since the new owners have taken over, the place has steadily improved into quite a nice spot. We love the location as we enjoy it's proximity to the wineries and the beaches. The large property is gorgeous and well maintained with barbecue pits and picnic tables as well as some seating down by the waterfront. All of which we used (Thanks!!). The rooms have all been updated and are impeccably clean. Most of the rooms have new washrooms and I've been told the remaining few will be done this winter. The owners allow the use of a beautiful screened in Gazeebo on the property to hang in when it's raining or the mosquitoes are bad.
The owners are very nice people and very helpful and I look forward to seeing them upon our next visit next year!
It is an older motel so don't expect the Hilton but it's very reasonable priced/clean and you can't beat the property and it's location.

Room Tip: Why hang out in the rooms, grab a glass of wine and head down to the waterfront!!

We really lucked out with this place! Upon spending the day at Sandbanks, we decided to spend a couple days in the quaint town of Wellington. We were able to grab the last room available and the owners were very helpful at recommending local restaurants and said we could always pick up some food at the local grocer and BBQ our dinner (what other motel offers you this!). The weather was great and we were able to cook our dinner and eat in what looked like a brand new screened in gazebo overlooking Lake Ontario! Soon after the owners Kelly and Cheryl started a nice bonfire for all too enjoy. Very comfortable gem - we have already booked for the fall!

Room Tip: The end unit is a little larger with its own porch that overlooks Lake Ontario - book ahead, you won...

Negatives:

The insulation. We could hear everything in the rooms on either side of us. The two well behaved children next door sounded like monkeys in a zoo only because the walls are so poorly insulated.

The plumbing: The water in the shower periodically runs scalding hot, for a few seconds to a few minutes.

The mattresses: The hide-a-bed mattress is full of springs and soft. The double bed is firm underneath the squishy mattress covering.

About the cleanliness, everything was impeccable except for the fixtures in the shower and the tub.

Compared to staying at a bed and breakfast, the Village Comfort Inn is not good value. At a B&B for ten dollars more a night, two people can have breakfast included in the cost of their stay.

The positives:

The managers are pleasant, welcoming and helpful.

The decor is fresh and new.

The access to the lake, picnic tables, gazebo and barbecues is amazing!

From the road, the Village Comfort Inn looks like an unprepossessing motel. Soon as you drive in, get out and walk around (especially the one-minute stroll down to Lake Ontario), meet its owners (Kelly and Cheryl) and check out the simple-but-lovely rooms, you'll likely realize that the place is a gem.

Thanks to Kelly and Cheryl for their warmth and hospitality.

Room Tip: See if the units closest to the lake are available.

It’s hard to beat the Village Comfort Inn for a quick ‘get away’ in the County. Close to North Beach and many of the most popular vineyards the Inn is situated right on lake Ontario. The rooms are large, clean and a great value... more than adequate for a beach holiday. Also, the hospitality of the owners Kelly and Cheryl can’t be beat!

I've stayed here many times over the past decade, and am always amazed at the setting - right on the shores of Lake Ontario, and at the same time in the centre of the charming village of Wellington. Within easy reach of all the major wineries, great restaurants, and town of Picton, this is an excellent choice for anyone planning a visit to "The County" (as Prince Edward County in Ontario is known.)

The Village Comfort Inn's new owners have been very busy upgrading the property. Very friendly and accommodating, non-locals will appreciate the owners' advice and hospitality.

The motel is well-priced, clean, and well-run.

Room Tip: Plan on a picnic or cocktail down at the waterfront. Request room closest to lake.

Stayed at this motel last week with my boyfriend. Found the Village Comfort Inn online and read comments on Trip Advisor. Other than review by Selmy121350 (is this guy for real??) All the comments were positive and so they should be. We had a great time here. It was a surprisingly large well maintained waterfront property. The rooms were very nice and clean. The owners were very friendly and accomodating and allowed us to store our boat down on thier large lawn. We were also allowed use of one of the 3 barbecues on site and we even had a fire down by the waterfront on our last night. We stayed up late a few night chatting and drinking local wine in the large beautiful Gazeebo that the owner had just completed. We would have liked to stay longer, but we didn't book early enough. The owner graciously offered us the use of his trailer (I think he felt sorry for us as we were having such a good time) but we had already made other plans. We were very impressed by this gesture. We already plan on heading back with some friends later this summer. All in all we have nothing but positive things to say about this motel. We are already looking forward to coming back to the County and staying at the beautiful Village Comfort Inn. Thank you Kelly and Cheryl!!

Room Tip: All around great experience
