Rooms are clean and quiet, with attractive hardwood floors, no a/c, stand up fan only. Tiny but clean bathroom. Nice bedding and towels. Great location overlooking the harbour, everything is an easy walk and the ferry is round the block. A bit pricey for what you get but this is Tobermory, no complaints.

The location of this motel is great! It is right on the harbor and it is the closest one to the ferry dock, downtown, and foodland market. The room is clean. They have free internet service. I liked to sit on the picnic tables to watch harbor and enjoy the breeze. We also got a coupon for Blue Heron Cruises... More

First night of our trip west. Great starting point, right next door to Chi-Cheemaun ferry. Clean room, very nice greeting at desk. Just one night but perfect location. Backs onto harbour restaurants and shops.

Great hotel! We stayed for 2 nights over the long Canada Day weekend and had an amazing view of the fireworks from the hotel balcony. Would recommend you get any of the rooms starting with the number 30 in order to enjoy the view. Service was also great!

The accommodations were perfect. I would highly recommend this hotel for an extended stay in Tobermory. Very convenient location right in town. Grocery store was a 2 minute walk. The room was very clean and comfortable. We stayed in a room that faces the harbor which was very nice.

Hotel was clean and great views of the harbour. Staff was friendly and helpful. price was right. (stayed in June). Myself and a Friend stayed overnight on a biking trip and the hotel was completely satisfactory for a nice night in Tobermory. Be sure to visit the brewery (I was told the same owners as the Motel). Great time there... More

We stayed in room 27, with the price of $60 we were not expecting much and were blown away with what we found. The room was spotless and nicely decorated, the bed was very comfortable. It had a front and back door and after going out back we were amazed to find we could sit and overlook the harbour. Then... More

We booked room 40 - a kind of a large one w/ two double beds and a pull-out couch. We were very pleased with how clean, comfortable and large it was. Our view onto the harbour was great. We had windows on two sides and a deck right outside. In the early evening we sat there to enjoy a snack,... More
