This is a nice Motel, and if Motels are your thing, you will enjoy it. Located in the heart of the entertainment area of Tobermory, and next to the LCBO, you have no need to use your vehicle once you are unpacked. We were left with conflicting emotions at the end of our all to short stay. The good: the...

Newly renovated and clean. Bathrooms have been modernized. Very convenient if you need to catch the ferry. Rooms on ground floor are big enough to hold bikes if you don't want to leave them locked to your bike rack.

This will make our 4th year in a row staying here. It's perfect for what we're doing and the price is great so there's no reason to try other places in the area. We either stay in room 10 or 11, but were in 10 this time. The room have a cottage feel to them and both have the really...

My wife and I planned a wonderful tour of northern Ontario. This was a much needed vacation after an intense start to this year. Blue Bay Motel was my choice for the night in order to catch the Chi-Chee Maun to Manitoulin. The room was beautiful and the bed was so comfortable. We couldn't have been happier. In the morning...

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...
