My wife and I recently stayed at the Blue Bay Motel in Tobermory. Booked it online and took a chance. Glad we did. Lovely little place located in Little Tub Harbour in Tobermory overlooking the harbour and all the boats moored there. Some interesting places to visit and nice pub called the Crow's Nest for a meal and a pint.... More

My best friend and I stayed here as a quick getaway to do some nature photography. It was the weekend after thanksgiving and essentially the entire town of Tobermory was shut down for the season. We arrived to the motel late and it was rainy but we were warmly greeted and shown to our room. Our room was clean with... More

This motel overlooks the bay in the centre of Tobermory and close to the ferry to Manitoulin Island. The room has a fantastic modern decor even colourful quilt colours on the two queen size beds which makes a change from the beige of other motels. We had a room on the second floor overlooking the bay. The bathroom was very... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your vacation experience. After your departure the shower in room 12 was checked to ensure proper water pressure. As it turns out the shower head was set to the highest pressure setting by the previous guest--an aggressively hard water stream as it turns out, but one easily changed by turning the pressure...

We loved this place - the view was perfect, service was very personal. Just a homey little place. They clearly aim to please. Wish the weather had been nicer when we were there - we would have liked to have taken advantage of the balcony and view.

Could sit out on walkway in front of room - weather permitting. Very close to ferry and in centre of village activities. Thoroughly enjoyed our... More

Our overnight stay at the Blue Bay was great. The room was clean and decorated nicely. The staff was courteous and friendly. The views from our balcony of the harbor were great. The whole grounds are very tidy and neat.

Blue Bay motel is a great choice for a short stay in Tobermory. Close to the boat tours and within sight of the ferry dock. The rooms are bright, clean and comfortable. But we can't say enough about the kind and generous staff. Truly a welcoming place to stay.

Four of us stayed at Blue Bay for two nights, based on Trip Advisor reviews, and offer up the same rave reviews. Room 16 is great, offering beautiful view of harbour. Despite rain for our whole stay, we loved being able to curl into deck chairs under awning. They offer coffee and supply extras for those early-risers who go through... More
