By all means eat here! Excellent food and service. Highly recommend the Steak and Mushroom Pie. Breakfast's are good. Very busy when we were there on a Monday evening and apparently not usually so busy so they weren't staffed for it. But our waitress was amazing, making sure we had everything... and doing it all with a smile! The Hotel is clean. That's all I can say for it and of course, that's important. We've stayed there twice and both times weren't impressed with the Hotel but were with the Restaurant. The lady who runs the motel appears to be 'put out' that you're asking her to do anything... we asked if they had a room available for the night... that's all! And she kind of sighed and didn't seem too happy anyone was wanting to rent a room. We felt the same 'cold shoulder' the first time (a year ago) and thought maybe just caught her at a bad time. The room is small but functional and does come with a microwave, small fridge and coffee maker. The tub had whirlpool jets... nice if you can get the tub plug to work! Both times we stayed we had problems. My hubby fiddled with it until he got it to work. Bathtub was broken (plastic casing cracked) on the outside that hadn't been fixed (although in fairness we don't know how long it's been like that). Appeared to be mould on the wall by the tub... washed but the stain was there. (How hard is it to paint a bit over it?) Beds are ok for comfort... both my hubby and I had sore backs but we are pretty picky when it comes to mattresses. Won't be giving the Hotel a 3rd chance... will stay somewhere else and continue to go to the restaurant. The ONLY reason this rating is getting 4 stars is because of the Restaurant... Rating on the Restaurant is 5 otherwise. Rating on the Hotel would be 2 stars at best. Oh... and the soap they provide is awful... if you do stay there, bring your own.

We stopped in Port Elgin, and we’re having difficulty finding a room at a decent price. I’m so glad we came across this motel. The rooms are very clean; fridge, microwave, coffee for the morning. Free WiFi. The young lady at the front desk was very helpful, with a very welcoming, upbeat pleasant, sweet friendly personality. Albeit the rooms are small but I’m not in Port Elgin to sit in my motel room 😊

This motel is on the highway, as you enter Port Elgin, which may deter some people! It is excellent value - the rooms are very clean and newly-renovated and well-equipped! One small thing - the WiFi in the rooms is not wireless but it is in the restaurant.

We were on our way home from Kincardine when my best friends baby was crying, screaming to the point where we couldn’t make it home so we pulled over in Aunt Mables parking lot. Noting they are closed, NO cars in the parking lot and parked in the farthest parking spot away from the building and closet to the road so she could FEED her baby, the owner, which she made us aware three times in a 5 minute conversation, drove up half way through her feed to question why we were in her parking lot. I was in the front seat, scrolling my phone as I was waiting, to answer her questions and letting her know we were feeding a baby. She was VERY rude (I’m sure a white, souped up, mom van is VERY suspicious) telling us to leave her property and again noting it’s “her” property. I mean, not only have we not been there for the sub par breakfast since ownership has changed, but now we will not recommend Aunt Mables because of this awful encounter.

Get out The Tums. At least they have three ply toilet paper. Waited for an hour for our breakfast on a slow Sunday morning. There was only one staff for the whole restaurant. Would not recommend it. Food was moderate and prices were high. We had the skillet breakfast

My family and I stayed in Aunt Mabel's family suite. I was shocked when I first walked into our room. Tastefully decorated, all new Reno from top to bottom! They have thought of it all! Two separate rooms from the living room (yes, three rooms!) my wife and I had one child in one room and the other in the main bedroom. We were able to relax together and watch tv without disturbing the children! For young and old families alike you know how hard that is staying in a hotel/motel and getting that time. The restaurant has some of the tastiest meals in town. Service is an A++ Great folks working there. Made us feel comfortable and right at home. A special thanks to the Miller's and all of their staff for making our labour day long weekend extra special. Also owned by these nice people are the Poplar cottages over on Green St. Stayed there many times and always a treat. Thanks Brian and Glenda, we can't wait to come back soon!! Sincerely The Herrings

Very disappointed. They advertise opening at 630am for breakfast. A group of us had decided we'd try Aunt Mabel's and meet there at 830am for breakfast. Imagine our surprise and disappointment on arrival to find the parking lot, or even the entrance to it, hadn't been plowed out. Every other business on Hwy 21 in Port Elgin was prepared to receive customers with plowed parking lots and shoveled sidewalks from the gift shop to the grocery store to the Dr.'s office. What happened? Staff didn't show up? I won't be returning here in the winter...and have reservations about trying the place in the nice weather!

Very friendly waitress did not make up for the almost hour's wait for our food, which was not great when it arrived. Home fries had been left under a heat lamp and were hard. Medium poached egg came hard.
