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...

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...

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...

We LOVED it here. It is in a fantastic location. We walked to food, the ferry to flower pot island and to the shops. Kelly and all of the staff are so warm and welcoming, the room was clean and nicely maintained. My kids loved it here and defiantly want to return.

We stayed at the Blue Bay Motel in Tobermory. This was our first time here. There was no air conditioning. The mini fridge wasn't even cold enough to cool our water. The tv had really bad picture. The chairs were ancient. There was only one microwave and ice machine on the bottom floor. We were on the second floor so...

This was our first time in Tobermory and we couldn't have picked a better place to stay! It was very clean and the room was nicely put together. A cottage feel which fit the trip nicely. The staff were very welcoming and friendly. We didn't require any extra help with anything but they make themselves available in case you do....

We totally enjoyed our stay at the Blue Bay. The room was updated, cozy, attractive and super clean. The beds were super comfortable. Great amenities with real towels. Free Wi-Fi. Great location on the marina. Kelly was so accommodating and helpful. We wouldn't stay anywhere else in Tobermory and look forward to our next trip there. Would highly recommend.
