Tobermory is a beautiful town but parking is VERY limited and expensive...$3.00 per hour with a 3hour limit. However, if you stay at Harbourside, you can walk everywhere. And a cruise to flowerpot island is a must and guests get a boho ticket with your...More

I'd checked out another place prior to coming here but didn't want to spend that much, so came here where my room on a Tuesday in September was $85. ($96.05 taxes in). This is an old tired motel but they keep it nice. I thought...More

About
Description
We are conveniently located on picturesque Little Tub Harbour. We are the closest motel to the Chi-Cheemaun ferry dock and just steps away from the downtown section of Tobermory. We have thirty-six units with a More variety of water views and facilities, including some with kitchenettes. All units have cable TV, electric heat and several have air conditioning. (Please note that only the rooms specified have Air Conditioning.) The Harbourside Motel has several patio areas where you can enjoy watching the hustle and bustle of Little Tub Harbour. Enjoy a picnic under our shade trees or soak up the sun as you lounge in one of the motel's many wooden chairs. Blue Heron Cruises tour boats leave from the same property. Blue Heron Cruises offers glass-bottom and jet boat cruises of the Shipwrecks in Big Tub Harbour and tours though Fathom Five National Marine Park. Less
