Based on good reviews, I stayed at the Bruce Anchor Motel in Tobermory. And what a great place to stay. I don't expect much out of a motel, but this motel was great. Don't set your expectations too high, as this is not a Westin you are staying at. The location is good as lots of things are a 1-3... More

4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I took my daughter on a quick two-night trip to Tobermory and we chose Bruce Anchor based on reviews and the association with the boat tour we were taking out to Flowerpot Island. I went in with no expectations, as this is a very small town with few options for accommodations (most people camp). We were both so happy with... More

This motel came recommended by a local business owner. We were very happy on our choice. We had a Queen room on the lower level facing Georgian Bay. The room was larger than expected and was very clean. Watching the sun set over the water was beautiful.

We booked last minute and managed to get a room. This place is fine for a couple of days stay in Tobermory. It is walking distance to the ferry loading dock and flowerpot island cruises, and also to "downtown" Tobermory with all the shops and restaurants. Overall, it is clean and nice patio, however I did find it a little... More

We returned at this hotel July 20-22 2015. We rented a king suite (that was the only room available) and wasn't sorry. We had stayed in the same room about 8 years ago. The room has a perfect little patio area with some big comfy chairs. The motel is located just a 1 minute walk from the water and the... More

First- don't believe in discount on the flowerpot island cruise! - it is only on the earliest trip (which is too early for most people anyway). Second- be careful of your legs - the beds in the rooms have sharp uncovered edges - all in our party got injured at their ankles! Third - forget to go asleep before all... More

This Motel is right at the entrance to the ferry line up and across the street from the glass bottom boats. The room was nice, clean and spacious. We had thought that the road noise might be a problem, but found out this was not so, as not much happens at night. Close to the harbour area (2 block walk)... More

The room was a good size, and it was nice to have a fridge. Can't beat the location, walking distance to shops and restaurants, across the street from the shore, and pretty much next door to the parking lot for the ferry. A couple small annoyances. We only got the wi-fi to work once for probably 10 minutes. Otherwise none... More

Our room was great, seems to have been recently redone. Clean! No issues I would recommend. Price was ok too considering the season and desirable location. Plus an LCD TV! Front desk staff was very friendly and helpful

We stayed for 2 nights and were pleasantly surprised by their newly renovated King/jacuzzi rooms. We were in #38 which I would highly recommend. It had great access to the car for loading and unloading and the walkout was to a deck with a seating area facing the point with sunset view. This seating area had lovely rattan chairs with... More
