“Hmmmmmmm”
Reviewed 2 September 2011

Well, My husband and I stayed overnight here after reading all the reviews on trip advisor. Usually we stick to chain hotels that have a good reputation but thought we would try this place as there are no chain hotels/motels in the area.
Over the phone without being able to see the hotel we had the choice of beach side with an obstructed view of the beach or patio side. I chose patio side thinking that the obstruction, which is an arcade, would be noisy. When we showed up the staff are VERY friendly and the woman showed us to the room and upon entering there is a strong musty smell from the airconditoning, I assume. There is a huge cooking pan on the one table due to the airconditioning unit dripping. The room was nicely decorated. I found it very strange that there was no phone in the room? First time for that. I opened the sliding patio door blinds to find a table of four people, literally right outside our door ! I would say, one foot away was an entire outdoor patio of approximately 40 tables?
There were no other rooms available in the hotel or the area so we hoped the musty smell would get better if we aired it out. It never got better. It Was a very strange room. After 9 pm you can only get in and out of your room via the patio door, no one was at the hotel if you had a question or concern. The woman who showed us to our room said, if there is a problem there is a number in the book in the drawer.......oops no book in the drawer, but you shouldn't have any problems anyway??? huh?
As it turns out the children down the hall were noisy and out in the hallway until approx 11:30pm......but there was no one to call as we had no number and no phone. The bed was super noisy and not very comfortable. You sit on the end of it to watch t.v and the top end of the bed was off the floor !
The breakfast is included in the price of the room, good deal. The breakfast was very good. I wish I had the same experience as some of the other guests, they seemed to have enjoyed it ! I can see the possible appeal of the place being close to the beach etc, BUT I was not happy and would not go back if in the area again.

We recently stayed for 2 nights at the Port Stanley Beach Hotel. It is literally steps from the beach. The only obstruction as other reviewers have already mentioned is "Mackies" (a fast food/arcade spot) in front of the building. For a summer holiday you cannot beat the location in Port Stanley. It is located close to the Big Beach. We stayed in rooms 4/5/6 - 3 couples. One of the couples had room 8 or 9 which I would not recommend. The walk patio to your room is actually the outdoor resturant which you can only enjoy once the restaurant is closed. The rooms had tv's, ac/, blow dryers and a small fridge, perfect for storing snacks or chilling wine & beer.
Access to hotel is tricky. Through the resturant - past the diners and on your left at the back is a door to the reception area of the hotel.
The rooms were very nice and clean. Staff, both in resturant and front desk, were pleasant and helpful. Check in was 1 p.m. and our rooms were ready right at 1:00 p.m. Breakfast is included in your stay and you can order anything off the breakfast menu. Perch and steak a nominal additional cost. A great selelction; pancakes, french toast, large omlettes, etc. etc. I would recommend this location and stay again!! While there go to GT's after dinner for drinks a fun spot on the beach with tikki torches and a live band.

While this hotel claims to be nestled in the sand, our room opened to the parking lot of the bar next door. Not exactly the beachy feel that their website suggests.

We had a charming room and a wonderful breakfast. Dinner was overpriced and just OK.

We rented three rooms and the penthouse for our one night stop over in Port Stanley.
The hotel is beautiful!!! The rooms are clean and beautifully decorated. The Penthouse was more like an apartment, with a huge living room and three bedrooms, plus the bathroom has a jacuzzi tub. All the rooms were clean and comfortable. The hotel is just steps from the beach and a quick walk to convenience stores and ice cream. We ate dinner in the restaurant, which was wonderful. The food was great, excellent portions and terrific service for our large party of 10. We were unable to take advantage of breakfast as we departed early the next day but were very impressed that it was choice of the menu. The rates are extremely reasonable for the quality of lodging. Highly recommend staying here!!! The owner personally showed us to our rooms and explained everything including where to park. Excellent!!

My friends and I recently stayed in the penthouse at the Port Stanley Hotel and were pleasantly surprised by the experience. The room was extremely spacious and clean. We found the staff to be very accommodating - even allowing us an early check-in for no additional cost. While previous reviewers are correct in stating the unfortunate placement of Mackies, the location is still premium for anyone who enjoys the beach. The entire town is within walking distance, although I would highly recommend you choose The Buccaneer for your meals(which is attached to the hotel). We enjoyed a lunch of yellow perch and it was delicious! Breakfast, which is included with the room was also very good - with no hidden charges! Loved it!

We spent two nights at the Port Stanley Beach Hotel and really enjoyed it. The purpose of our trip was simply to hang out at the beach on beautiful Lake Erie and staying here was a great choice. The room was well appointed and very comfortable. Being able to walk to the beach and back to the room(no driving required) when we desired was very convenient with kids. The complimentary breakfast was huge and awesome and a great way to start the day. We loved it!!!

Just go here!!! The rooms open right onto the beach and I've never seen a "beach" hotel with rooms that had wood floors and persian carpets. Its like class meets beach. The hotel includes breakfast in the price which was anything on the menu and was delicious. We had dinner there as well and the proportions were huge and everyones meal was absolutely amazing. Our party of four were so full we could hardly roll out the door. The people here were all very nice and made you feel very happy that you had picked this hotel to come too. I would recommend this hotel to anyone and I would know that they would not be disappointed. I cannot say enough about this hotel. an excellent choice. Ask for room # 2. It is huge and you"ll love it.
