A very friendly young receptionist who was more than helpful.
We had a large room on the top floor with a small balcony and an additional family in the guttering above - at least three squirrels! They were no nuisance to us, not so sure about the building.
To a male, all seemed just about OK, though even I noticed the dusty staircase. But my wife was much more critical, showing me grease on the top back of the cooker.

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 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.
