My wife and I recently stayed at this motel. We were traveling with our 12 year old grandson.
The experience was not good and I will not be going to this motel again, either alone or with family.
The up side was location, easy to find and next to a good, clean restaurant with a reasonably priced menu.
Other than that the motel was more expensive than others in the area, the floors, bathroom fixtures and general interior were NOT clean! Finding another persons personal clothing items in a drawer in the bedroom is not acceptable. The house keeping staff said they would not be coming in to clean the room during our stay.
Net result; over priced, sub standard!!

If you're looking for updated fancy rooms don't stay here. But if you want to meet a charming owner who runs an inexpensive, family-friendly motel on the shores of Lake Huron this is THE place.

My brother booked rooms for us here after speaking to Sunny, the owner and I was glad he did. She checked us in with such good humor that all 5 of us in 3 rooms loved her. Don't be surprised if she compares you to Matt Damon, it's a compliment!

The rooms are suites with beds in 2 rooms and a kitchenette. There are grills and a gazebo in back, and you could see there were a lot of families there.

I really enjoyed Sunny, the owners, attention and willingness to give u satisfaction.
She even called me the day of check in to see what time i would like to check in, but i was on the road.
Very cozy apt/efficiency type suite....kitchen with all the amentities, separate bdrm, with those comfy pillows. Living room area w desk small dining area, bathrm etc. Very nice.
I would definitely recommend. Dont let the entrance set up give u doubts. June 2/3 2017

I went to the Sand Castle Motel for a weekend in April. The staff was great, very helpful. The room was comfortable, including a kitchenette with utensils, dishes, glasses. The bathroom was basic, nothing fancy, but it was fine. I would probably visit this Motel again if I return to Port Elgin.

Excellent stay, rental unit was a full amenities suite..actually like renting someone's apartment.
We had left behind an expensive piece of electronic equipment and Sunny searched and found it. She, and husband, packed it carefully, took to FedEx, and ship it to us. They never asked for money up front...only that once we received it, e-transfer freight charges. We wanted to send a gift to show how grateful we were, but they firmly insisted they would not accept anything, in fact would refuse the e-transfer if it wasn't exact amount. Had a cook up in BBQ area, fuel supplied, and separate/private spots.
I have never, and have stayed in thousands of locations, seen such pure genuine friendliness and common decency .See ya soon guys !
