We've been coming here for years and it never disappoints. It's a perfect landing point for all things in the area. We spend the day in the park hiking and swimming, then come back to a clean, comfortable, cottage-ish room to relax and clean up. This year we got a room with a king bed and a bubble tub. This...

Good location, short walk to things including the Bruce Peninsula National Park visitors center. We would have given this motel 5 stars however there was a biker group that also stayed there and were loud long after "quiet" time. The room was large, all done in blonde knotty pine walls and furniture. Electric fireplace for cooler months. Updated, modern bathroom...

I stayed at Blue Bay Motel on July 15th-17th, 2016. We checked in early without even asking and the room was available right away. For a "motel", I didn't expect much but as soon as my boyfriend and I walked in we really enjoyed the atmosphere. There were two double beds and an extremely modern bathroom. The room we had...

My daughter and I stayed at the Blue Bay for 1 night and absolutely loved it. The room was nothing fancy but very clean, which is important to us. The view was awesome, I only wish I would have reserved a second story room instead of bottom. The innkeeper was very helpful when we asked where the best place to...

Here at the Blue Bay Motel we appreciate the open forum that Trip Advisor provides to our guests. We do find it disheartening that due the nature of public forums, everyone is able to post anything they wish, accurate or not; even if they have never stayed with us. The team at the Blue Bay Motel is very proud of...
