A great getaway spot. Right in the little tub harbour, best room is 0, you get your own front patio, excellent for people watching and relaxing. Very biker friendly, offered towels to wipe down the bike. Definitely visit again.

We've been staying here once a summer for the last few years. Always enjoy it and this time was no different. It's clean, comfortable, and can't beat the location. Also the owner and staff are all really welcoming and helpful. It's just a short walk to the visitor centre where we picked up a great hiking trail that did a...

This is a great place to stay in Tobermory. With updated rooms and pleasant finished pine furniture, this is the most enjoyable place I've stayed in Tobermory. Great location right on Little Tub harbour. Perfect if you are in Tobermory for the SCUBA diving, as you can drop your gear off at the docks and return your car to park...

We had a very enjoyable two night stay at the Blue Bay Motel. It was located in the heart of the "Tub", east walking distance to a walking trail (part of the Bruce Trail with a lookout tower nearby). Restaurants, boat tours, ice cream, coffee all within a few steps. A guide book in our room put together by the...

We recently stayed at the Blue Bay and had a wonderful stay. Great room on the ground floor overlooking the water. The staff were very friendly and had great recommendations for activities to do in the local area. The rooms were very clean and the beds very comfortable! We will be back soon.

Two of us traveled, each in separate rooms, each with the same review: see title above! Great location has almost everything you will need. Clean as a whistle. Comfortable beds and bedding. Mine was a king, with a small sitting area on the side. All the amenities, except a telephone, in our rooms. That was a blessing! And the staff...

Good, but not great. Room was fine and clean but did smell of cigarette smoke. I assume this is from the age of the hotel and not because of recent guests. The only issue was the price. Considering that our room only included two queen beds and a fridge, I thought the price of $175 a night was a bit...

My daughter and I stayed at the Blue Bay in Tobermory for 3 nights in July. Loved the finish of the room, the cleanliness, the fact that there was no carpet (hardwood finishing), free WiiFii, and the view (overlooks the "Tub"). It's a two-storey motel, so you're not necessarily limited to ground level but even if you are you're still...

We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay at the Blue Bay Motel. Our room (14) was on the 2nd floor and had a great view of the harbour. It was very clean, comfortable and well appointed, with a recently updated bathroom. The motel is very conveniently situated for everything to see in charming Tobermory - there is a coffee shop...
