We stayed here recently one night, and were pleased. We had an upstairs room that overlooked the harbour, and you could sit outside on the deck and enjoy the view. Check-in was very smooth, and we asked for the code for wifi and also for some ice. The room had two double beds and a pull out sofa. There was... More

We stayed at this location for 2 nights. Great price (for 2 double beds $87 for a weekday night, $107 for weekend night - although I'm sure these are off-season prices). All rooms have wifi. You need to ask for password - they print out a piece of paper with a code on it and you need a separate code... More

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
