This is a nice hotel which is right by the harbour The receptionist who checked us in couldn't be more helpful, we needed some bowls and spoons for cereal and she happily supplied us with what they had Rooms were clean and comfortable The heating was great especially as the temperatures were only 10 Celsius

We (2x 26yr olds) stayed for a night and couldnt decide where to stay... the price of this motel got me questioning cuz every other place was charging high ends of $200 while this once was $82 for a queen bed room... but I took the risk since it had good reviews. All of the rooms have wifi access and... More

This is a quite ordinary motel room, but the location is incredible! It looks down over the gorgeous little Tobermory harbour; the motel is the usual drive-up type, but there is a backdoor onto a grass area that overlooks the harbour - you can sit on chairs and watch the activity - so relaxing! There is also a BBQ and... More

Hotel is in a good location, close to everything. Clean rooms, comfy beds, kitchenette and some rooms have a view of the harbour. No phones or clocks in rooms and would be nice to have a dead bolt or chain on the doors. No locking mechanism other than the door knob. Noisy neighbours till after 11 and by 730, lots... More

This is just an average, nothing-special motel with a great location. It's located right in Tobermory, just steps away from restaurants, shops, grocery store, cruises. Other than the location, this motel offers nothing special. Rooms are decent size (we stayed in one with 2 double beds), but the washroom (and shower especially) are very small. The room offers a fridge... More

I checked out accommodations online for various hotels and B&B's in this area. A lot of them charge really high prices (aka "The Tobermory Premium".) The Harbourside Motel fit our budget! Checking in was a breeze and the two young ladies at the front desk were very helpful and great at customer service. Our room was #5 and a modest... More

We are sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your stay at the Harbourside Motel. I did notice after looking at your reservation, that you did not book the room until very late in the day on August 2nd - for a long weekend in Tobermory this is very late and would definitely limit your options for room choices....

We stayed at the Harbourside Hotel for two nights. Located right on the harbour it is in an ideal location for everything. They have barbeques, picnic tables and lounge chairs on their patios overlooking the harbour, very nice to sit and watch all the boats and action coming and going. However, the best thing about staying there was the staff,... More
