Motel Makeover’s Filming Location on Netflix
April Brown and Sarah Sklash‘s insight and creative magic are such that, despite their inexperience, their work reflects their love and experience in the line of work, led by project manager Courtney Mann. After all, they called quits to their 9-to-5 jobs in the summer of 2016 to establish their firm.
Since then, the Netflix stars have never turned back, reimagining the motel experiences in Ontario with their passions for travel, wine, and creativity.
So, if you want to know the specific locations of these Canadian-based hospitality services, plus the detailed facts of where this compelling and feel-good show Motel Makeover was filmed, we’ve got all the details.
Sauble Beach, Ontario
Sauble Beach is a picturesque settlement on the Bruce Peninsula, along the side of Lake Huron, nestled in an unincorporated community in southwestern Ontario.
It is not only an attractive seaside neighborhood, but it is serene and peaceful, too, making it the ideal escape for those who appreciate a relaxed, laid-back atmosphere.
Hence, The June Motel (formerly The Knight Inn Motel) is situated at 11 Sauble Falls Parkway, only 1640 feet away from the beach.
This hotel location featured in the Netflix show Motel Makeover contains 24 rooms (double and king), the Heydays dining, a swimming pool, gift store, and lounge, in addition to a bar that serves as a check-in point.
Prince Edward County, Ontario
The first June Motel, which we can witness in a few scenes, is in Prince Edward County, Ontario. Its specific address is 12351 Loyalist Parkway, Picton.
This indicates the motel faces the harbor and is no more than 3 miles (4.5 km) from the Mountain Provincial Park lake. Moreover, the location is just 11 miles (18 km) from the Sandbanks Provincial Park beaches.
It is family-friendly, romantic, and ideal for a girls’ getaway, just like the one on Sauble Beach. It’s also worth noting that the 2015 Canadian documentary film Al Purdy Was Here was filmed nearby.
Miller Island, a historic emporium at 4 Caroline Street West, Creemore, where April and Sarah acquire most of the furnishings for their apartments near the motel, was also a filming location for the Netflix reality series Motel Makeover in Ontario.
Skinwalkers (2006), Love Alaska (2019), and The Injustices (2019) were all shot in this area.
The Apartment at 238 Queen Street East in Downtown Toronto is another antique business featured in this show.
It customizes one-of-a-kind unique vintage products, making it ideal for April and Sarah (subject to transgender speculations) to pore over and indulge on for the official motel.
