Best place to eat in Tobermory! Right on the habour with waterview rooms. Older Motel but probably the best in Tobermory. Friendly staff. Very close to all attractions. Walking distance to everything in Tobermory.

Room 16 offers a spectacular view of little tub harbour. I believe it's the most expensive of all the rooms. I loved the view and sought after that room specifically for the view and the private balcony. The beds were very comfortable but there were two double beds in the room. Nor cool for a couple who loves to sleep...

Great location... steps away from the lcbo and all the shops and restaurants. It's a little dated but has that small town feel. We did a few days of scuba diving and found it close enough to walk our equipment from the hotel to the boat.

We stayed at Blue Bay Motel one Saturday weekend in June during the orchid festival. The hotel is rather dated with its furniture and decoration but it's quite clean and well maintained. The bed was comfort and all amenities were in working conditions. We had a room at the second floor with a good view of front street.The location is...

What used to be one of the lesser rooms at the Blue Bay, room 3, has been redone with new beds, flooring, shower, etc. and is very attractive. As usual, the innkeeper, Kelly and her assistant were very pleasant and accommodating. The location, overlooking Little Tub Harbour, is perfect for enjoying the view and people watching. Would recommend the Blue...

Nice surprise, comfortable, clean room with some homestyle unique touches. Agree this is probably the best in Tobermory. Friendly and informative host. If you need to wait for the morning ferry, this is a pretty good place to wait.

Great weekend place. Late arrival procedure was easy and email communication was exceptional. The location was easy to get to and bed was comfortable. Really enjoyed our stay!! I would stay here again without hesitation. The only thing that was a small negative was the shower pipes made a lot of noise when the shower was turned on.

Recently my son & I visited the Georgian Bay area to hike a few days along the Bruce Trail. We contacted Kelly at the Blue Bay before leaving home- she was most accommodating! We left our vehicle at the motel & Kelly shuttled us to the trail head. Three days and nearly 40 kilometers later we walked back into the...

We truly enjoyed our stay at Blue Bay Motel. The reception staff were friendly & helpful! The blue binder in the room is an excellent idea. We followed many of the suggestions in there. We strongly recommend staying at this motel!

Comfortable and nice staff. We were not sure at the beginning because this place seems a bit old but rooms were renovated and these are very comfy. Had a good night of sleep and everything was very clean.
