We stayed for couple nights and had a very positive experience. Customer service was good - friendly, informative and very helpful. Rooms were clean (we did ask for an extra bed sheet to put on top of the comforter), jacuzzi jets were very clean, and overall room smelled and looked clean. Few things would make the Room perfect are: not... More

I had stayed at the Bruce Anchor about 18 years ago when it was just a single building, not many renos, etc. I just returned and was pleasantly surprised; new additions and updated rooms. Yes we went out of season, so we got a great rate, not sure the prices during the summer but definitely a great spot to stay.... More

This was the second time I have stayed here. The first was in June for an overnight stay on a motorcycle trip. I found the Bruce Anchor to be a great place to stay in June and I was not disappointed this time. My brother in law and I were both very pleased with the room it was very clean... More

It is outside the marina, food and shopping district. The lake view is pretty limited (see photo). Although it is a motel, it is pretty expensive, $200 / night in summer, minimum stay is 3 nights, breakfast is not provided. If you stay here, they will give a discount to the flower pot island but only for the 1st boat... More

Great Place to stay, is in the best location. Tip: Make sure to book ahead like we did, this Motel books up quickly. We stayed for 4days & 3nights. Stayed in the Motel & got the King bed room with jacuzzi. These rooms are in the new part of the hotel. Check which floor you wish to stay in just... More

The location is great. It's very close to the Glassbottom boat tour, very close to downtown and a few minutes away to the Big Light Tub. The room where we stayed is okay, pleasant but doesn't have hair dryer. You have to request from the front desk and return it there afterwards.

This is possibly the best location in Tobermory. We had rented a few rooms and two cottages for a family get together. On arrival you are read a stark warning about the rules and fine. Most places say a few pleasant things, and then politely tell you the rules of the place.Here it felt like being read your Miranda rights!... More

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
