We have always stayed here when visiting Tobermory, but have usually booked in advance and got a king bed room in the newer section of the motel. This time, it was last minute and we got a room in the older section with two queen sized beds. The beds were, in a word, hard. One sagged as well. The one... More

This motel is right at the end of highway 6, between Little Tub Harbor and Big Tub Harbor. It's also right across from a fabulous place to watch the sun set! The staff are very friendly and helpful. The motel itself is fine, it's pretty clean and the rooms are a decent size. I can see how it might be... More

This is the best place in Tobermory, near to lake, ferries and the flower pot island boat tours. They have common microwave, bread toaster, water heater and barbeque for the guest. This is very good facility for cooking our food.

We spent two evenings here as an end to our trip. We stayed in a waterfront view room. Note that the view is obstructed by their cruise office and trees. There are no dividers between the balconies so folks can easily walk between the rooms (make sure to lock up and close the blinds!). The staff was extremely friendly and... More

Mendicino is located at very quiet area and a couple minutes from downtown. Decorated by wood from outside to inside. Carpet is a little cheap and worn out. Running water is yellow. I don't know it's city's issue or not. Comparing to other motels in area at summer time, the price of the cottage for 4 people is not bad.

Clean and comfortable. There is a pavilion for making toast in the morning, which was very serviceable. We had two balcony waterview rooms which had slightly obstructed views of the sunset, which was lovely. Extremely convenient for the Bruce Anchor glass bottom boat tour!! Great seating area facing the water and the sunset : )

I stayed in room 15 a few weeks ago and enjoyed my experience. The service was excellent and Jenna left my room in very good order. I only rated 'rooms' a 3 because although it was clean, the room itself was outdated and the furniture was old.

I just wanted to give a huge shout out to the exceptional service at Bruce Anchor Motel and Cottage Rentals. We were served by Sam during our stay on July 6-7. We were also upgraded to the higher end cottage as there was an issue with the Mendicino cottage that day. Thank you for that. The service by everyone (especially... More
