First of all, let me start off with the amazing service we received from Blue Bay right from the start. They didn't have any rooms available for Friday-Saturday nights available to have 2 consecutive nights. But through e-mail communication, they responded within LESS than 24 hours + they gave us options in terms of what very little vacancies they had... More

We stayed for 5 nights in September. Room was clean. Bed comfortable. Perfect location on Little Tub harbour. Parking in back of the hotel is easier than in the front. Bicycles are available to borrow. Rooms are modern. Refrigerator provided.

Many lodging choices in Tobermory. Have tried several. No more trying. When you stay at Blue Bay, you have what you need, with location, value, amenities, etc. The room I stayed in was perfect. Finally, I was impressed with Kelly, as Inn-keeper extraordinaire. She's good people, as the saying goes. - Craig

Stayed here over the Thanksgiving Weekend. Very clean room. Kelly is amazing and really knows the area & had thought of everything. Very helpful with area attractions and little area gems. Each room has a binder loaded with tons of information. Everything you may need to know is in this binder. Highly recommend this motel.

We loved staying at the Blue Bay Motel. We could walk to everything in the little tub, restaurants, stores etc. A cute little town and we would have loved to have stayed longer. The room was very clean and up to date and we felt right at home. We will definitely be back !

Kelly was so warm and welcoming, offering advice, lending us umbrellas and plates to eat our local pie. The room had been recently renovated and the quality beds and other furniture made the room special.

We spent a weekend in July at the Blue Bay-room 16. This room is on the second floor facing the harbour. Awesome view, with large sitting area. This hotel is clean and well maintained. The staff are so friendly and helpful. Location is perfect, walking distance to all shops and restaurants. We will be back next year!!

VERY CLEAN and just an awesome location with a great view of "Little Tub" harbor. Easy walk to all that Tobermory has to offer and just a few minutes from The Bruce National Park main entrance and visitors centre. Kelly and the crew are masters at making you feel right at home! Thanks guys!

We booked 3 weeks in advance and had never stayed in Tobermory before. Upon arrival, I noted how small and really old and ugly the room was. Then I saw a fan in the window. The windows were the old and single pane glass that did nothing to keep the rain or noise out. Yes, it rained at 3 in... More

spent Labor Day wkend here with a friend - would have liked the 2nd floor (balcony); however we were definitely pleased with our room on 1st floor (#2). Can't say enough about how helpful and friendly the staff were - very knowledgeable about the area as well. They have bikes available for touring, which we did - of Mermaid Cove... More
