We usually eat in the Summer Dining Room where the menu selections for both food and beverages offer an excellent variety of each. The specialty of course is Lake Erie Perch in several offerings. The semi-formal style of the dining room is very attractive and the staff are well trained in every aspect. The appetizers are served on a wheeled...

My wife and I stayed at the 70 year old Erie Beach Hotel for 2 nights. One night was part of a theatre/dinner/hotel package. The other night we paid by ourselves. They do have plenty of parking for the hotel guests. Parking spaces are at a premium on the streets for visitors to the beach. So it is nice to...

My family and I came to Erie Beach for dinner. It is a family style restaurant. So most food is meant for sharing and comes on a large plate. We had one server for drinks and one for food which I thought was great because our drinks were always taken care of. The fish was good. It is average to...

Great location at the beach. Great food. Great service. But need's a little loving. Had an early dinner at the Cover Room. Five of us in total. First timers. We were seated at this huge table in the middle of the room. Salads and veggie trays started arriving as soon as we were seated. Waitress came right over and took...

Good things first! The location is excellent- right in the middle of things, parking onsite and free, flowers and landscaping very pretty, restaurant onsite, beds quite comfortable. Not so good things! Very old, noisy A/C clunking away, not the best smell in the room or hallway, layout of room odd (bed shoved right up against register), lack of amenities in...

My wife and I enjoy coming here every year. The Erie Beach takes you back to a time when life was more relaxing. The rooms are very basic yet comfortable and clean. The grounds are well kept and colourful in the summer. The beach and shops are all within a short walking distance. Staff are friendly and attentive. Main floor...

Desiring a touch of nostalgia, we celebrated a birthday at the Erie Beach in Port Dover. Nothing truly changes ... Time almost stands still .. Salad offerings on the table were delicious , especially the pickled pumpkin, and horseradish jello . Famous perch dinner : perch was delicious Mashed potato absolutely tasted out of a box ... Awful.. Fresh Vegetables...

That the hotel has been around for 70 years is obvious and quaint! ...the rooms were open, airy but difficult to get to - we either went outside or thru the dining room... The staff, especially Andrew, were very friendly and helpful, including helping us get our bikes in and out of storage, answering many questions etc etc. On our...

The Erie Beach Hotel has been around for an unbelievable 70 years. I have been travelling there from my city a few hours away about once or twice a year for over 35 years to their restaurant. I have never stayed at the hotel for lodging. There are multiple different style rooms in the restaurant. My favorite restaurant room is...

Where to start? The motel boasts that it has been operating for 70 years, unfortunately, the rooms apparently haven't been updated in this period of time. They are depressing, grey-painted wood panelling, no clock radio/alarm, no coffee machine and extremely noisy. Salad carts line the hallway outside of the main floor rooms. These are rolled out before 8am - perhaps...
