I stayed two nights at the Blue Bay in early June. My large room was clean, comfortable, and nicely decorated. However, the best part of the Blue Bay is the staff. They were friendly, very knowledgeable about the area, ready to offer advice when asked, and respectful of my privacy when I needed quiet time. I foolishly left an important... More

New furniture. Kids love it. Close to harbor. Very convenient. Maybe it was too early, we didn't see lots of travelers. But the motel was full. I would recommend it to my friends if they go to Canada.

We found our stay here comfortable. The beds were excellent as was the room. Didn't like the pillows..found them too soft. We know the area and have been here many times as we have friends who live in Tobermory. Just over night so..didn't have time to visit the town...We would stay here again.

I liked the location, room condition of the motel. Rooms were clean and taken care of. I also liked the guest handbook in the room. It was not just some typical info book but the own work of the inn-keeper.

We only spent a night at the motel, arriving late and leaving early, we found our keys and instructions by the door, as the office was closed, but we managed to meet the owner who came to say hello as we were unpacking. The position by the water is excellent. The rooms freshly renovated and clean with appealing solid wood... More

This was our second stay at Blue Bay Motel. The room was beautifully updated, had a view of the water, was conveniently located close to all amenities. The staff were friendly. We will stay there again when we visit Tobermory.
