This place is in dire need of repair. From a front door that would not lock, a bathroom door that would not close, air conditioner that would not work, very poor TV reception and the list goes on. The owner seemed to make up rules as the day went on. They advertise pet friendly yet on checking in I had the dog on a leash with me, I filled out the paper work, prepaid for a night on my credit card yet when we came back after lunch the owner’s wife abruptly said, wow you have a big dog that will be $20.00. She the started to argue with me about the amount. Not my idea of pet friendly or even customer friendly. The bed wasn’t comfortable and the fire alarm went off at 3 am for no reason. First and last time here
We rented two rooms at the Meaford Inn on the weekend of July 23-25. Our dogs were welcomed there, and in fact everywhere we went in this lovely small town on Georgian Bay. We arrived just as the restaurant (Red Door) was closing, but the people working there still cheerfully served us dinner out on the patio. Although it rained heavily at times over the weekend, we made the best of it, and still managed to see quite a bit, including Beautiful Joe Park.
You're not going to get extras (make sure you bring your own cup for water), however, you will get the basics (shampoo/soap/lotion/body wash/TV) in a clean room run by very nice people. I had neglected to read the fine print within my on-line reservation & the owners were lovely and forgiving with the fact that rather than call as instructed, I had mistakenly looked for the main office and then tried to open the door myself, seeing the key was available & not understanding the protocol of a family-run business post 10:00 p.m. READ THE FINE print. ;) A very good deal for a quick stay. I fully appreciated the professionalism and the attention to cleanliness.
The rooms are small, but clean. Bathroom looked brand new. I still wiped everything down, it is the age of covid. My only issue was the bed. Really firm mattress and pillows. After spending the morning hiking in collingwood and the afternoon walking around meaford I was exhausted. The bed was not for me. My hubby liked it though. Also the Inn itself is in the perfect spot. Everything is within walking distance.
The motel is pretty basic and pretty much what you would expect. It was clean, King bed was pretty comfortable, tv worked (though finding a Chanel to watch was slim pickings), mini fridge wasn’t the coldest but it worked and there is an air conditioner unit. They did not clean up the room while we were there and I thought that’s what they advertised but not biggie. We had only one roll of toilet paper so I had to call that evening for more so we didn’t run out. Location was on the main strip so everything you need is within walking distance. Not sure we’d stay here again as I would have liked a pool to hang in. The beach is small and always filled with kids, which was totally fine, but the breeze by the Bay made it feel too cold to want to swim so a pool option would have better suited us. Overall the stay was fine. Nothing fancy. …
