First time in the area. Decided to stay at the Maplewood with two other adults. The Owners are super friendly, and super nice! The bathroom could do with some updating, small in size, but overall it was a great place to crash for the weekend. We stayed in a " Family Suite " which was perfect.. Two seperate bedrooms, Eat in Kitchen with a cooktop stove, Fridge, dishes, basically everything you'd need for the weekend. Has a back "deck" on each unit, which is nice for us smokers at night time.

Just to refresh my 2008 review, the place hasn't changed at all. Stayed there over July 1 weekend. Fridge and TV worked fine, Plenty of hot water. Bit of traffic noise from the main road in the front room, but back bedroom very quiet as it faces into their backyard. Still the best motel/hotel deal in the area.

My wife, 7 year old and I stayed there on July 1, 2008. When we're in the area for a night or two, we typically stay here over the past few years, and have consistently had good experiences. Most units have a fully functional kitchenette, many have separate bedrooms. The decor and furniture is a bit on the austere side - more like you would find at a well kept family cottage than a typical 'hotel'. We've always encountered the friendly owners/operators, who have had the place for several years. You can't really walk to the beach, but McDonald's, pizza and the beer store are within 100 yards. If you're looking for an upscale hotel with room service, go somewhere else. But if you want a decent, budget place to sleep and eat for a couple of nights with rates significantly below the only nationally known chain hotel in town, then do check it out. We'll be back for sure. Their website gives an accurate picture of the place, check it out.

This place is disgusting. Please avoid. The place hasn't been cleaned at all. We got the one bedroom kitchenette room, wanted to stay a month- however, quickly switched to 1 night after seeing and going through what we did. There was black mold, dark hair in the shower (as though it was a community shower that doesn't get cleaned), remotes were sticky, walls were splattered with God only knows what, the freezer had yellow stuff growing in it, we could hear mice in the walls, nothing had been swept/vacuumed for probably a good month.. etc. I could go on. Avoid.

Filthy shower stall. All the furniture looks like it was found in people's garbage. Whole place needs a full renovation. Dirty sponge on the kitchenette sink. Long black hair in the shower.... I have very short brown hair! Overpriced. Over $100/night is an absolute joke. The only reason I didn't leave is because I expensed the cost.

We used to stay at this motel 2+ years ago, it was lovely and clean. NOW, it was absolutely filthy. Floors had not been washed, the kitchen and bathroom were disgusting, no towels, dirty sheets, garbage under the beds and behind the nighttable. Dirty dishes in the sink when we arrived. Stuff spilt in the fridge. No kettle, a dirty coffee maker, etc. We would not eat there and will never stay again.

I try to stay at "mom and pop" places when I can. After all, it's usually just a place to sleep.
Maplewood is an old motel, which they have worked at to modernize, and they keep it clean and tidy.
The grounds have big shade trees, and it is on the 'main drag' close enough to restaurants and shopping that you can easily walk.
I was in room 10, which had a small kitchen area with sink, fridge, stove, counter, and all the cooking and eating utensils and tools you'd need, plus a microwave.
While small, there was a table for 2, a comfortable bed, with side tables, a big dresser, and arm chair, as well as a small clothes cupboard.
The large tv had plenty of cable channels.
The wifi was free, easy to access, and quick.
There was cross-ventilation with a screen door, and bathroom window, as well as an air-conditioner which I didn't need.
While sometimes it took a short time to arrive, there was plenty of HOT water.
The small bathroom had a sink, shower, and toilet, as well as a small shelf with toiletries for 2, as well as face cloths, hand towels and shower towels, and a shower mat.
Even though I didn't leave towels on the floor, they were replaced with clean ones, but the shower towels were thin, and smaller than I'm used to.
Parking is right outside your door, with the spaces clearly delineated with a 'walking area' marked off between each space.
There was a table and umbrella outside every second room, and Muskoka chairs outside each other.
The room was clearly marked no smoking.
The bed was comfortable, and overall it was a quiet place.
BUT
The bathroom shower stall in #10 had lots of mold along the three walls of the base. One side wall was loose, and that was the source of the problem, and where it was worst. It will only get even worse, and lead to some structural failure. For this reason alone, I would not stay here again.

If you want to get picky, I have never seen crown moulding installed flat along the wall, as opposed to obliquely against the wall and ceiling.
And while there was nothing wrong with the tv, I have never had to use 2 remotes, for doing different things - like one for channels, and the other for volume.
I could hear what the folks next door were talking about, but I presume there were hearing issues involved there, and I had to up the volume quite loud on the tv to cancel out their choices - probably to the detriment of the folks on the other side of me.
They were smokers, outside at the table, but that meant I had to close the screen door.

This is an average motel which has new owners who are excellent. The room was a little musty as though not used for a while, but was very clean. The units could do with a little bit of love and care. Beds were fine. Location is good on the main strip of Port Elgin, close to most things including the beach. Recommend a visit to Southampton which is nice.
The new owners were very friendly and efficient.
You get what you pay for and I would recommend for budget travellers. Average moving towards good.

The #1 worst motel I have EVER visited. Run, run very far away.
HOUSEKEEPING - Non- Exisent. Glad we had our (winterized) RV for accomodation. Needed a comfort station. Would not have removed my boots in this claptrap. Use shower??? Not on your life. Damn expensive crapper.

If you call them directly, probably $98. per night. If you book on-line it is a lot more. Hope this helps.
