The hotel is in a great location with easy access to the ferry system, restaurants had has a great view of the harbour. On the down side, the toilet had trouble flushing, the shower was small and the room did not come with a coffee maker or a hair dryer.

From the moment we checked in we were very impressed. Very friendly staff, clean rooms, great views and awesome location. We stayed in room 40 which has two double beds, pull out sofa and kitchen. We were impressed that everything we needed to cook with was provided and there was even a BBQ right beside our room provided free of... More

Perfect for seniors. Clean, humble nice size room. Great to make your own beverage or soup and light style meal, we were tired of pub style eating. Right across the road is a great restaurant for breakfast, lunch or supper. Walk to the Ferry. Walk to the shops right behind the hotel. Sit outside and enjoy watching the boats in... More

We stayed here for 2 nights whilst travelling around Ontario and although we loved our visit to Tobermory we did have a few issues with this motel. Yes, the price ($157) was a bit steep but then it was August and we did have a prime location overlooking the water. Our room (UNIT 38) was easily accessed from a corridor... More

The motel has a great location, and takes good advantage of this with muskoka chairs on the lawn overlooking the harbour. There are gas fired BBQs that can be used and so on a sunny day this place is lovely. The rooms are clean, while not air conditioned the room had a very quiet fan that could be used. However,...

We stayed in July of 2013. The room was very basic and clean. The hotel was quiet when we were there. Furniture was a bit dated and a little worn. However, the location was great, the harbour and ferry are basically next door.

Yes, the sheets are clean and the view is great. Other than that, there is nothing: no A/C, no closet, no safe, only two old lamps, the bathroom is tiny, everything is old and shows signs of decay and several repairs and coats of paint. The mattress was so bad...it reminded me of an old mattress I had when I... More

Our room was a basic motel room, but I loved the hardwood floors and the cross breeze from windows that opened on two sides plus the bathroom window making it three sides. Although kitchenettes are available, we opted for the room only (with a small fridge) because we were only staying one night. It's very clean and the staff is... More

Stayed for 2 night this week. It was great with our 4 and 1 yr old kids. Staff was friendly, room was clean (units 31 and 32) and had a mini-fridge that looked new. Didn't have a view, but it didn't matter since we were only in the room to sleep. There was also seating all around the motel so... More
