It’s 30minutes to Bruce Peninsula National Park so location is good. All other hotels in the Tobermory area were sold out for the holiday weekend. It’s very basic. Clean enough but very old and run down. Room had a damp smell like wet laundry that has sat too long. Nice that it had a mini fridge, a fan, and a shared microwave. Also directly across the road from a good restaurant for breakfast.

Clean, spacious room. Checking was fast and efficient. Shower pressure is AMAZING!!! Felt like I was getting a hydro massage which is just what I needed after a 90km bike ride! Beautiful view of the countryside at the back of the building. Only cons was the Walls are a thin, you’re able to hear the conversations in the adjoining room. No AC but the fan provided did the trick.
