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.

Older hotel , very clean, comfy beds. We had an elect fireplace, fridge and bubble jet tub. Our Rm (8) was at the end of second floor and overlooked Little Tub Bay and the ferry. 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

The Blue bay Motel is a wonder motel overlooking the Little Tub Harbour in Tobermory. you are right in the heart of the village. The rooms are newly renovated and look fantastic. we had a room on the second floor and the view was wonderful you can see right out to the islands on Georgian Bay.

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

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
