Very Lovely

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed Aug 12, 2019via mobile
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 😊

I have stayed here probably a couple of months this year, maybe longer. Small rooms but clean. Staff is very friendly and go out of their way. If you work at Bruce Power, Aunt Mabel's is about 20 minutes away. Fridge, microwave and coffee maker in the room.

This motel is excellent value for the money. The rooms, though small, are clean and well taken care of. Restaurant food is tasty and staff are very friendly. Will recommend Aunt Mabel's to friends and family.

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.

Room tip: The beach is a 15 walk down the road - Spectacular!

We always end our visits to Port Elgin with a family lunch at Aunt Mabel's. Normally the food is excellent, but our most recent meal was not to the usual standards when poorly prepared French onion soup was served to two of the guests. None the less, the service was excellent and the cost of the soup was removed from the bill. All's well that ends well and we look forward to our next visit - we just won't chance the French onion soup.

Room tip: We visited the restaurant, but never stayed at the motel.

Hello Darrell,
Thank you for taking the time to write a review.
Our french onion soup is made with a red wine and for awhile we found no stability with a certain wine we used in our recipe. We have since changed the wine and are happier with it. I hope you will give it another try...we are always trying to enhance our products in the restaurant and in our rooms.
We look forward to seeing you during the next family lunch.
