For approximately two decades Super 8 Port Elgin has been offering ‘Rooms at the Inn’, a complimentary one night stay for people visiting loved ones in hospital or long term care facilities in Saugeen Shores for Christmas.

Originating as a mandatory corporate wide initiative, the privately owned Port Elgin hotel decided to keep it going when corporate stopped doing it. “It’s so easy to give back to people,” said Super 8 Port Elgin General Manager Trevor Raynsford. “It’s a neat program.”

Raynsford said the offer applies to a one night stay either Christmas Eve or Christmas Night. “If they stay two nights then we’d give them one night free or if they stayed just one night then it’s free.”

Raynsford said they usually have one or two guests using the service each year but added that however many call they’re happy to accommodate.

To book a complimentary ‘Room at the Inn’ call Trevor Raynsford at 519-832-2058. Super 8 Port Elgin is located at 5129 Highway 21 (Goderich Street) in Port Elgin.
