Great value for the rate. Lucked out on having a room that was tastefully decorated in Harley Davidson motif. Rooms were very clean and well appointed; loved the detail of makeup pads and cotton swabs in rest room. Enjoyed the beautiful view of the harbour from the table and chairs outside each room. Terrific location, in the heart of the... More

Just a couple of blocks from the ferry. The room was basic, but very clean and fresh. What gave this place 5 stars from me was the service. From the initial contact until we checked out, they went above and beyond helping us with the special needs required for my husband's disability. Will absolutely stay here if we are ever... More

Our room was upstairs with a bay view. Quiet and very comfortable with a king log bed. We were impressed on how clean the room was. Blue Bay is easily in walking distance of shopping and restaurants. We are pleased to recommend the Blue Bay Motel.

Why don't they have more rooms or another night of vacancies so that we can stay longer? This place is in a great location! Check in and out...friendly and easy! Clean, comfortable, spacious. They supply mini a mini fridge, hair dryer and excellent free wifi and nice soft towels. No a/c here, which could be a problem in the summer,... More

Located right on the bay it was walking distance to restaurants, tour boats and the Bruce Peninsula National Park. The rooms were clean and well appointed. The staff was friendly and... More

The hotel was absolutely wonderful! Location and the view was great! Super clean and super comfy beds. Had bikes to use for free! The owner was super nice and let me take home a book I found in the room. We had a flat tire and the girl working went and got a pump to try and pump it up... More
