We really enjoyed this motel. Close to everything and also very clean. Will definitely book with them again next time we go to Tobermory. The only slight issue was that you can hear noises through the walls and doors, however I do use whitenoise for when my kids go to sleep, and this resolved the issue.

Been staying here for close to 20 years now, not every year, but this is probably our 15th time here. Rooms are always clean, you get the best view of the harbour. Owners and staff friendly. Handy to everything.

Very clean, updated motel. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Nice harbour view, right in the middle of the action, walking distance to everything. No air-conditioning but ceiling fan with windows that open at the front and back of room for a pleasant cross breeze.

Great location, in the heart of Tobermory, very close to the Chi-cheemaun Ferry terminal. Walking distance to all local restaurants. The rooms are clean and we had a fabulous view of the harbour. We would recommend this hotel. The staff very helpful.

We booked here because of the good review and were not disappointed. This is a quaint little place and most of the rooms have been renovated with beautiful pine or cedar furniture. It does not have air conditioning and we brought a fan from home so we were fine. It is the little touches that make this a great spot...

Blue Bay motel is an exceptional small, independent motel. It surpasses others we have experienced in its numerous thoughtful touches. The room decor is very attractive and the staff is wonderfully friendly and helpful. We will return!

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...
