“JUST AWESOME”
Reviewed August 23, 2011

The wife and I found the place we were looking for. A very quaint, nice and quiet motel. There are so many pluses, forget the BIG BOYS--this is on hand husband and wife at your leisure. Kevin and his wife are 5 star people [also great breakfast place in town] that are your new friends. You wanna dive and kick back ?. This is HOME. What we paid for 2 nights was a one night price 100 yards away. Tobermory and Kevin, we thank you.

Simple, well maintained, clean, quiet, and affordable -- that's all we ever want from a place to stay. Kevin & Lynn are great folks, they've got it figured out, and we keep coming back. It's not rocket science, but it's surprising how many other places, Tobermory and elsewhere, just don't have it figured out.

The other positive reviews here are bang-on and the details are accurate, so no need to repeat them. Cedar Vista is a great value for the money. In Tobermory you can likely pay more elsewhere and get less.

For us, the weekends here are about the hiking and swimming, and maybe next summer -- scuba diving. But there's lots more here, and a great place to stay ensures that we're well rested and enjoy every moment.

I read the reviews and choose this motel but found out it is just ok.
Maybe I expected too much for around $100/ night in Tobermory.

The room is not as clean as other reviews.
There are some spiders in the bathroom( small black ones)
The bathroom is a little bit smelly.
The bed is not as clean as other hotels I have ever been, but still acceptable( Anyway We put our own bedspread on )
There is a patch board on the wall, which was broken .The wires are explored. They just use a disposable Plate to cover. It's not safe expcially for people who have children with them.

Rather than those, other things are ok.


One thing I could not understand is :

In the morning, the manager knock our door very, very heavily around 10:30 am and tell us the check out time is 11:00 am( He could tell us that when we checked in) . We were shocked, and I dont think that is very polite( Maybe I am too sensitive) Then My husband went to the front desk to pay. I continued packing our stuffs.

Then the manager came to knock our door other two times to tell us if we would not leave as soon as possible before 11:00 am, he will chagre us for another day.

We left the motel before11:00 am .

I dont understand why the manager tried to kick us out before the check out time and there were nobody waiting for our room.

The model us pretty average, except for the bed that is really comfortable and clean. The moquette smells a bit and the decor is pretty old. I would have been excited if it had costed at least minus 20%. I think the price was too high for the quality of the stay.

Stayed here for 2 nights over the August long weekend. Kevin and Lynn are 2 incredibly kind, generous owners! Made us feel at home at every moment. Very helpful/informative of the area. Treated us with respect. Would totally go back.

Compared to the price of other hotels and motels in the area, my husband and I decided to go with Cedar Vista after reading reviews on TripAdvisor. We were not disappointed. The owner was very helpful, and the location was a short walk to town with a little Mom and Pop Shop two minutes away that was perfect for breakfast. Although the hotel was nothing fancy, it was a perfect place to sleep after a long day of hiking and sight seeing.

We stayed at this motel on our second night in Tobermory and wish we had booked here for both. The room was basic ( no phone or bathtub) but the shower was clean and adequate. The room was very clean and very well maintained. We got almost the same amendities the night before and paid almost twice the price. Great value for a pleasant stay.
