I was blown away from the Harbourside Motel. Location was excellent, as well as the rate. We booked very last minute and I was not expecting much as most places were sold out. Our room was quaint, we spent most of our stay exploring nearby attractions, so it was perfect for us! Bed was comfy, fan provided was nice to... More

We stayed one night and could have stayed a week. The staff are happy and helpful. We had a very good experience checking in. The staff were very efficient and thought to mention everything we might want to know about the motel and nearby area. We arrived on 2 motorcycles and within 10 minutes a staff brought us towels specifically... More

We checked in in the evening. The check-in process was very fast and the staff very friendly. She gave us our wifi username and password and told us where we can get ice. The ice machine that the motel provides is huge and is located outside near room 3. There was a gentleman outside near the ice machine who wanted... More

We loved the motel. The location and view of Little Tub Harbor was perfect. The room was cozy - had a cabin feel. Everything was spotless and well-stocked. The front desk staff were so nice and friendly and helpful. They do have grills and picnic areas if you want to cook in. Plenty of room for my family of four... More

We stayed in two different Motels in Tobermory this past week and this was definitely the winner. Excellent location and very friendly staff. We stayed in room 38 which is on the upper level, above the store. The room was very spacious and offered us exactly what we needed. The view overlooking Little Tub Harbour from the balcony was lovely.... More

I have been coming to Tobermory for many years and this is now my most favourite place to stay. The view of Little Tub Harbour from our room's deck is wonderful. The motel has been renovated and is spotlessly clean. The air-conditioners work great as it was really hot outside. The staff at the motel are excellent. Check-in and the... More

A perfect getaway for me and my sons. Two nights would have loved to stay longer. The room was perfect for our needs. Love the bbq and the muskoka chairs overlooking the harbour. Would definitely visit again.

We spent three nights in town for diving and exploring. This is a great location for divers, walking distance to harbour and local shops and eateries. Stayed in room 6, smallish but clean and comfortable. The motel provided 2 days of free wifi and a 2 for 1 coupon for Blue Heron tours. You will want to get down and... More

Stayed here for one night in room 14. The room was clean and had lots of natural light. Although there wasn't any A/C, there was a fan provided, and if you opened the windows there was more than enough breeze. The motel is within walking distance to a Foodland grocery store and the harbour, as well as pubs and restaurants.... More
