Great location close to everything including the ferry... Rooms are clean but basic nothing spectacular. Parking available right outside the room. Service is great everyone was very friendly and welcoming. Check in and check out was hassle free!

My wife and I have enjoyed Tobermory for more than 25 years so we decided to book a night when coming home via the ferry. The Blue Bay is a wonderful motel unless you luck out and stay during a heat wave. We so missed having A/C which would have made our King Suite so much better. I'm surprised that... More

We lucked out and got this motel on a cancellation. However there were 3 of us and only one queen bed. They added a cot for us which was quite large and comfortable at a cost of $10. I had asked for a price when booking and they knew how many people, however I was charged $20 more upon arrival... More

My family and I stayed here on a Monday night (Civic Holiday). We were luckily to get this room as we were trying to book last minute. We ended up in room 7. There were 3 of us, so we added a cot to the room (cot was very mushy and soft). There is no air conditioning in the room,... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay here. We were able to check in early and they even sent us an email when our room was ready for check-in - what a nice touch! Our room was clean and comfortable with a fridge and everything we could want. The staff was friendly and helpful and we couldn't have asked for... More

We stayed two nights in Tobermory in two different motels, and since I had the comparison of the Motel across the bay which offered a much superior view, larger room and much less expensive I am giving this a lesser of a rating. The room cost us $180 inc. tax for the night and it was on the bottom floor... More

We stayed there for two nights. Really nice hotel. They let us in before check in time! Staff is very friendly, nice view, comfy bed and unlimited coffee! I would definitely recommend this hotel! Free parking. It's also very quiet. Second floor is much better.

Stayed at the Blue Bay Motel and was skeptical initially because of the word "motel" but it was far from being anything but good! Very decent rooms, ample parking and based right in the middle of the little town. I would definitely recommend anyone coming to Tobermory to come here.

My niece was visiting from Calgary, so my daughter and I planned a getaway for the three of us. We booked a room with a queen bed and a sofa bed. At the last minute my other daughter decided to come along. When we got to the room (No. 5) we realized the sofa bed was more of a divan... More
