“Wonderful stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 August 2014 via mobile

We had a great stay. We were in room 14 and it was super clean. The staff were very friendly and professional. The bathroom was fully renovated and really nice. No AC but the evenings were so cool we were fine. Big ceiling fan plus a window fan in the room. The motel is close to everything as it's right on the main drag. Could use some new carpet in the room and some paint to modernize the wooden panelling but that's just a small suggestion. Recommend the second floor as you get a view of the Tub Harbour.

Hotel was nice. Management was polite & very accommodating. Rooms were old, but clean. Would be nice if they had breakfast facilities. But otherwise, we had a nice stay.
I would stay & recommend staying at this hotel.

We enjoyed our first stay here. Staff was the greatest. When our car battely ran down, they spontaneously offered their help, even though it was a busy part of morning. We revalidated that congenial staff couldn't be replaced in nice and cozy accomodations. Easy-access to both the National Park and the shopping street.

Room Tip: Second floor was great.

We recently stayed at the blue bay Motel. We stayed for two nights and absoluty loved our room. We had a large King size bed that was so comfy. Our room got cleaned everyday and they did an awsome job on making sure the room was spotless everything is walking distance on the Bay which was conveient when we went for drinks and dinner.
The only thing we were disappointed in was there snack machine. We got two bags of chips, peanuts and a chocolate bar. The chips and peanuts were expired from atleast 6 months ago.
Overall, I would definatly stay here again in the future and will recommend it to anyone.

We enjoyed our recent stay at the Blue Bay Motel very much. We have come for a number of years now and have had a great stay each time. The rooms are very comfortable, the staff is always friendly and helpful, and we really enjoy the environmentally friendly touches. We look forward to coming again next summer.

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 4k loop off of The Bruce Trail. Lots of great opportunities for swimming and we had a great time. It's rare to be so close to all that the park has to offer and be able to come home to the comforts of a comfortable, clean room and hot shower rather than a tent and sleeping bags.

One of the really cool things about the room is the shower. It's made out of natural stones and really neat!

Looking forward to returning next year!
