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

We have been to the Blue Bay before but our latest visit on September 14 was the best yet. Our room had been completely redone and was very welcoming. The king size bed was the most comfortable in recent memory and the electric fireplace added a nice visual touch not mention the warmth.

We stayed two nights at the Blue Bay last week and from the moment we phoned for reservations, everything was perfect. We advised Kelly, the hotel manager, that we were on motorcycles and our trip was weather dependent which was no problem if we had to cancel. When we arrived, Kelly had a pilon in a parking spot in front... More

The Blue Bay Motel is located in a great spot at the southeastern end of Little Tub Harbour. There is not a whole lot in Tobermory other than the harbour area. From the hotel it is a mere three minute walk to the marina, restaurants, dive shops, and grocery store. If you are a scuba diver, the location is ideal... More

The motel is very well located, within walking distance to the restaurants and shops. The room with two queen beds was spacious and clean, the bathroom quite small but the shower excellent. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

We are regular guests at Blue Bay Motel. Our most recent trip was the Labour Day long weekend this year (2014). We have always found innkeeper Kelly and staff to be most courteous, friendly and accommodating. The rooms are well appointed (#4 - Rain Shower- brilliant!) and very clean. Blue Bay is located close to everything in Tobermory. We will... More

The Blue Bay Motel was very clean and well maintained. Location was excellent, close to harbour and shops. Bathroom was clean. WiFi was a little weak for the kids devices, but worked perfectly on my laptop.

The staff are courteous and very friendly, the rooms are impeccable and the motel is biker friendly. Within walking distance of all amenities and waterfront. Very scenic view. Would definitely stay there again and recommend it to everyone traveling in the area. Thank you again for a very enjoyable stay.
