My family and I stayed in this motel overlooking the harbour in Port Elgin for one night in August 2016. We booked two rooms and they were clean, spacious and comfortable. The place offers breakfast for a modest fee; we enjoyed fresh bread, fruits and very nicely made tea and coffee. It is situated right across the beach and you... More

We had such a great experience here! We arrived with no plan and luckily there was vacancy at this motel near the beach. Sam was so welcoming, he directed us to various restaurants & even called to check hours for us. The room was very clean and well stocked, the freezer even had ice in it! Breakfast was DELICIOUS and... More

We like staying here because it is so close to the beach, we have spent the last 6 years there. It feels so homey, and the view can not be beat. The sun sets are awesome to watch. You are so close to the harbour.

The motel is very well situated looking at the beach and the Marina. A great hang out for the local young guys with very loud pick up trucks at 10:00PM, however the spectacular sunsets will more than make up for this. The motel was spotless clean although somewhat basic. A great place if you just need a room for the... More

At the Edelweiss motel, the rooms have beds to suit all tastes, queens & doubles, soft and firm.The one you chose had 2 double beds and a balcony. We ensure our guests are never disappointed, they do come year after year to spend their vacations with us, not just passers by. After only one night you assumed that the beach... More

I've spent the last 9 summers at Edelweiss Motel. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The owners are friendly and accommodating. The grounds are beautiful and the beach is just across the road. The room service breakfast is amazing. Looking forward to my next stay at Edelweiss.

We spent the last 2 summers at the Edelweiss Motel. Its location is ideal for families. The main beach, mini golf, train and harbour are just steps away. My husband and I , as well as our kids had a blast

The owners Sam and Iman are very accommodating . Corner lot with beautiful gardens. Quaint and clean with 6 rooms. A 2 minute walk across road to beach. Have the option for a continental breakfast in your room or on the porch with gardens in view. D&D

Our stay was a bit disappointing . Rooms were clean and simply outfitted, yet quite outdated; walls, floors and hallways paper thin. Always read the fine print. When it says Continental breakfast available, NEVER presume it comes with the room, like a B&B. Lessons learned. All rooms are upstairs, many stairs. Only 2 rooms have a view of the lovely... More

From Sam and Iman / owners: Being listed under B&B isn't our choice but that of Trip Advisor and their requirements. We are a seasonal business, we don't fit under their 'hotel' category. Our motel is unique in its furnishings and decor and we provide the amenities our guests need. The gardens and the patio over- looking the lake provide... More

Breakfast is not included. A lovely place, neat and clean good value, but breakfast is extra. That is all I haveto say. This web site wants 200 characters. I am not a wordy person. TThis is te best Ican do.

Great location - right on the beach. The owner was very accomodating (personal touches like ensuring we had beach chairs or new of a great restaurant that we don't often get elsewhere). We were worried that because it's listed as a B and B that we'd not have any privacy. Not the case. We go to Port Elgin often and... More
