If you are going to do Pelee Island Ferry, you can't get a better location.
We had room 205, overlooking the Lake, and directly in front of the Ferry dock. Price was right at $159.00.
I tend to move furniture around for a great experience as we like to sit and have cocktails prior to heading out for dinner. Put two chairs in front of the window and enjoyed the view prior to heading downstairs for dinner.
The room itself is huge with King Bed, sitting area, table and chairs if you want to eat in, coffee machine, fridge. A bit dated, but we were just using it for easy access to the morning Ferry. We went to the grocery store for breakfast stuff and were able to relax in our room prior to heading to the Ferry.
The restaurant in this hotel is excellent! My sister went prior and found the same experience. We ate on the patio overlooking the lake and Ferry dock and the appetizer of Pate was awesome, Veal chop was outstanding, and the local tomato salad with blue cheese was amazing (so much so, I have to make it at home now). Wine selection was good as well. Loved all of the china and serving dishes as well.
The service is outstanding and you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. We ate here both nights. On Saturday they also had a singer/guitar which was very nice. I would give the restaurant 5 stars for sure.

Great spot if you are taking the ferry over to Pelee Island or you like listening to a bunch of cars with big exhaust pipes owned by drivers with small penises cruising into a U-Turn on Friday and Saturday night. (Bruce Springsteen's "Racing in the Streets" has been rolling in my head since I was there.)

Leamington is a great town if you want access to Pelee Island or the national park... or love Mexican food! Leamington is not a great town if you worry about watching a maskless chef working in a cafe kitchen cough up a lung over the food prep station.

The good: Great location. Right on the lake and a two minute walk to the ferry for Pelee Island. The restaurant wasn't open due to Covid19. We were upgraded to a Lakeview suite which was awesome. The room was very spacious and very clean. The linens on the bed were lovely and fresh smelling.
The not so good: The bed wasn't the best, a bit tired. The pillows were all lumpy so they need to be replaced. The air conditioning didn't work very well. It was extremely hot when we stayed and I think it just couldn't keep up. It was 78 F (26 C)in the room. The little coffee machine needs to be descaled as there are a lot of lime deposits preventing it from working properly.
Also black out curtains would be a nice option.
We would still happily recommend staying here though. It was so nice to look out at the lake every day and watch the ferry come and go.

If you decide to stay at this hotel please make sure you lock your door with the lock handle. A man had the key to our room, opened our door while we were sleeping. He kept trying to get in, but the lock handle stoped him from entering. This was the scariest thing ever happened to us. We got our things and left right away. This place is clean but NOT safe. We're definitely not coming back. This place is a self service no receptionist. You just walk in get your key from a basket and when you leave just drop your key in a box. Our room was in the 3rd floor when it seems we were the only ones staying there. This looked really fishy when there was only ONE car in the parking lot (my car) I don't usually write reviews but this time I felt like I had to. Please be safe

We stayed for two nights over the Thanksgiving weekend. The room was clean, however, we did not receive any housekeeping services. The note said this was due to Covid precautions and that housekeeping would be available for a few hours every day for guests to pick up extra towels etc... We were not around during those hours so we could not obtain fresh towels. When you are paying so much money for accommodations there should be staff to freshen up the rooms while we are out for the day. There is no tea kettle in the room or in the common areas so we could not make tea. As well, there were no staff around at the front desk so we couldn't ask for recommendations or questions.

If I wanted this experience I would have stayed at an Airbnb and not an inn...

Stayed at the Seacliffe Inn in Leamington for 2 notes (Sunday nite and Monday nite) it was a self-check-in. Was texted a door code number to let ourselves in and an envelope with my name on it was waiting at the front lobby. In the envelope was our room number with the key and a letter enclosed. Letter stated if you need anything please call one of the 2 numbers listed. Called the first number and his phone mailbox was full so I ouldn't leave a message. The second number rang twice and it hung up. Also stated on the letter that for emergency or immediate assistance go to room 108 to see the Innkeeper. Tried that 3 times and no one answered. Also housekeeping does not do your room during your stay. So they left 2 coffee pods when we arrived but did not have any for the second day as we could not get a hold of anyone. Finally one of the phone numbers texted us and asked what we wanted. They finally brought 2 coffee pods for the Keurig coffee maker. The room was clean and adequate. They don't supply a hair dryer, alarm clock or microwave. There is a microwave in the common room for you to use. We paid $381.00 for 2 nites and feel for that price we should at least have access to a live person to communicate with. I know Covid plays a part in all this but protocol can be used safely in any setting.

The Seacliffe Inn was one of the biggest disappointments I've ever had as a traveller. From the website, it seemed like an upscale inn, and at $225 per night, I expected more. Only after I booked did I receive an email informing me that there would be no staff at the hotel. What? How about some informed consent here, management? When I arrived, the freezer in my mini-fridge was filthy (I have photos). There were no hangers in the room. I phoned the number given to me in my information card for housekeeping, got a voicemail and after 24 hours, no one had ever replied. There was garbage and recycling in the halls the entire time I was there. The only actual human worker I encountered during my two-day stay was a cleaner, when I was doing my self-checkout. This individual, in contravention of the health laws, was doing her rounds without wearing a mask. Lovely to discover after the fact that in the midst of a pandemic, my bed was made by someone with no mask. Nice touch. Better yet, I sent two emails to the management to tell them about my bad experience and after two weeks, have yet to receive a reply. What a crappy way to run a hotel. On top of that, the "lake view" is actually the parking lot of the ferry terminal, a huge ugly expanse of asphalt that the locals use to race their cars on Friday and Saturday nights. Delightful.

When I checked in I tried to turn on my fireplace and it wouldn’t work. It’s the middle of October, and it fall so it’s a bit cold and I wanted to enjoy the fireplace. When I booked the room I was excited they advertised fireplaces in the rooms. I called the inn keeper to inquire and was told that they aren’t turned on at all yet so it won’t work. I expressed I was disappointed because they advertise them, I was cut off and told that he would not “entertain this conversation” and he hung up on me.

When I went to go to sleep the bed was so uncomfortable it felt like I was sleeping directly on the springs.

The toilet paper roll was almost gone… in a time of covid I would expect to have a fresh unused roll that other people have not handled, especially at the price of this hotel.

In the morning I was going to shower. I gathered my towels/cloths and unfolded them. I noticed there was black and also white hairs all over the towels and cloths. My family does not have this colour hair. I found the most acceptable towel and got in the shower. When I closed the shower curtain I discovered IT WAS COVERED IN MOULD!! There was also black hairs on the shower curtain.

At this point I was thoroughly disgusted. I looked closer around the room and found that everything was dusty. So dusty I could write my name in the dust and there were cobwebs hanging from the ceiling. There was a pair of socks in the drawer from a previous guest…

Again, during these times of covid and given that hotel rooms are to be cleaned anyways I would not expect a room to be this unclean, ie the dust and mould.

I didn’t contact the inn keeper seeing as in our first and only conversation he said he “would not entertain” the conversation and hung up on me.

I would highly recommend saving yourself the pain of staying here and dealing with any of this and stay at one of the chains located within minutes of this place.

Because of this experience I will never stay in a hotel that is not part of a chain again.

We have come to the Seacliffe many times and things are just not good. There is no carpeting on the floor; just a “cheesy” rug on either side of the bed. There are ceiling lights, but only 1 bedside lamp, and it doesn’t work. The TV doesn’t work. 2 of the 3 electrical plugs for charging devices were behind the bed and night table. No instructions for using the remote to try to use the TV. And no phone in the room to even get a hold of anyone. 2 small bath towels, 2 washcloths, 2 hand towels. That was all. There was an ice bucket but no ice machine in sight. There is a small dining table and 2 hard chairs. The table looks like someone has been pounding on it with a tool. There is no other seating. The grounds outside were littered with last years dead leaves and other plant material. The photographs on the website are terribly misleading. And do check out the menu for the restaurant. The prices are very, very high. And empty pizza boxes in the vestibule. And all this for $240!!!! This will be our last visit to the Seacliffe Inn.

This place is a disgrace. No amenities, no onsite staff. Only contact is a guy named Joe who is preported to be the “innkeeper “ in room 108. This guy is indifferent to any conversation, if you booked on Expedia that is your problem. No property maintenance outside. Every room does not have view of the water. My watch mysteriously disappeared because I forgot to put it back on after a trip to the restaurant washroom even after 2 minutes. Nobody on this property is competent to run a lemonade stand
