What used to be one of the lesser rooms at the Blue Bay, room 3, has been redone with new beds, flooring, shower, etc. and is very attractive. As usual, the innkeeper, Kelly and her assistant were very pleasant and accommodating. The location, overlooking Little Tub Harbour, is perfect for enjoying the view and people watching. Would recommend the Blue... More

Nice surprise, comfortable, clean room with some homestyle unique touches. Agree this is probably the best in Tobermory. Friendly and informative host. If you need to wait for the morning ferry, this is a pretty good place to wait.

Great weekend place. Late arrival procedure was easy and email communication was exceptional. The location was easy to get to and bed was comfortable. Really enjoyed our stay!! I would stay here again without hesitation. The only thing that was a small negative was the shower pipes made a lot of noise when the shower was turned on.

Recently my son & I visited the Georgian Bay area to hike a few days along the Bruce Trail. We contacted Kelly at the Blue Bay before leaving home- she was most accommodating! We left our vehicle at the motel & Kelly shuttled us to the trail head. Three days and nearly 40 kilometers later we walked back into the... More

We truly enjoyed our stay at Blue Bay Motel. The reception staff were friendly & helpful! The blue binder in the room is an excellent idea. We followed many of the suggestions in there. We strongly recommend staying at this motel!

Comfortable and nice staff. We were not sure at the beginning because this place seems a bit old but rooms were renovated and these are very comfy. Had a good night of sleep and everything was very clean.

The staff were very hospitable and the motel is in a good location with walking distance to any of the restaurants. The rooms were very clean and we would prefer to stay in the same motel for our future visits as well.

I stayed two nights at the Blue Bay in early June. My large room was clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. However, the best part of the Blue Bay is the staff. They were friendly, very knowledgeable about the area, ready to offer advice when asked, and respectful of my privacy when I needed quiet time. I foolishly left an important... More

New furniture. Kids love it. Close to harbor. Very convenient. Maybe it was too early, we didn't see lots of travelers. But the motel was full. I would recommend it to my friends if they go to Canada.

We found our stay here comfortable. The beds were excellent as was the room. Didn't like the pillows..found them too soft. We know the area and have been here many times as we have friends who live in Tobermory. Just over night so..didn't have time to visit the town...We would stay here again.
