My experience in Tobermory was amazing and Adventure the Bruce Inn made it even better. The coffee maker and the coffe that they had made my day. The tv was ok even though they do not have channels, but who cares. They made me and my family happy in 2014. I can't wait to come back in 2015 :D

Beautiful room...cleanest I've EVER seen!! Staff was friendly, courteous, helpful, incredibly kind and accommodating. The landscaping was beautiful and location was perfect, very close to everything. Can't say enough good things about this place. We stayed as a couple, but definitely family friendly as well. We felt very well looked after...simply fantastic :) Thanks so much Adventure the Bruce Inn!!... More

I'm sad to say that my experience at the Adventure Inn was less than satisfactory. Without getting into too much detail I can say that most of the reviews here nailed it. It was smelly, overpriced, and the service was horrible. I won't be staying there in the future.

I was so excited when I booked my stay here from the pictures and reviews it seemed to be one of the nicer motels to stay in tobermory. HOW WRONG I WAS. The rooms look clean at first glance, but there was bugs and dust everywhere. The bathrooms smelled...though I could never figure out where the stench came from. To... More

This response is from a group that had been evicted. Viewers will be able to tell which one. I requested Trip Advisor to remove, since they would not and found it to be within their guidelines, I believe, to cyber bullying... I will not be spending $$$$. to advertise with them. Its very sad that they will support untrue comments.... More

our first time in a motel. It was clean, tidy and sufficient. Towels and toiletries like a hotel. TV, Coffee maker. Hot tub was there, but was always being used by someone. Nice landscaping. What more can we ask? Price was in the same range as others.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel the first night of labor day weekend. I was surprised to see the recent bad reviews. While it is true that our room was a bit pricey, it was not out of synch with the rest of town during high season. This hotel is so clean inside and out. It has wifi... More

Clean, nice, spacious room with double beds, A/C, heating, fridge and TV. Hot tub also available. Friendly staff. No breakfast included. Maybe a little pricy but definitely recommended - by comparison!

Way over priced! Paid $179 a night! Would rather pitch a tent then stay at this place that offers absolutely no sound proofing! All we heard were footsteps from the room above, shutting the bathroom door, toilet functions, coughing etc etc! Stuffy, humid room and uncomfortable bed! For a motel like this they should be ashamed for charging what they... More

We try our best to insure people are quiet, building has been built with as much sound proofing as possible, for a wood framed building. All walls, floors and ceilings are insulated. We do not have carpets so sound will transfer.. I find that we are the same as other motels. As for your room being humid we have A/C,... More
