Our room was spotless and overlooked the harbour. The beds were exceptionally comfortable. The staff was friendly. Ferry wasn't running (we called the day before and they said it was). Bit disappointing as we booked there specifically for their 50% off rate for the Flower Pot Island Ferry tour. We did go off-season (just before CDN Thanksgiving) and were able... More

A benefit of visiting a tourist town during the off season is getting great service and deals on accommodations and that's exactly what we received at the Harbourside. Unfortunately the rest of the town was basically shut down but we enjoyed our nite here facing the harbour. The room was very clean, beds firm and the shower worked well. The... More

Stayed here for 3 nights. Close to everything and the harbor room views are spectacular. See some posts here that the rooms are basic and that is true...if you want the Ritz stay in the city. It was quiet and secluded. The perfect get away place to relax. Keep your cell phone and social media at home and enjoy what... More

Chose this motel because of its close proximity to the Chi-Cheemaun ferry from Tobermory to South Baymouth. Room was roomy and comfortable and within walking distance of Little Tub Harbour. Would definitely stay again if traveling this way.

This is a pretty basic motel, but in a great location. Perhaps that's why their room rates seem high relative to the condition of the rooms. We had a harbour view room, which gives onto a continuous balcony along the length of the motel. There is occassional foot traffic and the rooms have a big window, so be forewarned re:... More

I stayed the night to to get the ferry in the morning. The room was clean and we had a harbour view room, so it had a balcony over looking the harbour. The balcony is a shared balcony but its still nice. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The bed is very comfortable and I would surely come here... More

The motel located in the center of the downtown and all amenities are in walking distance. Room is clean and equipped with A/C (not all rooms have A/C) which is a paradise to those travelers who is fat and like to stay in a cooler room in hot summer like me. One great benefit to renters is the motel offers... More
