We went into this small quaint cafe after a disappointing brief and very poor experience at the restaurant to the north. We were glad we went into this cafe..... We had a great experience and the cook / server was fantastic accommodating our needs given that they were winding down for the ferry season for this year. The place was... More

Room 2. Cheap and cheerful. Quiet and comfortable. The staff is pleasant, helpful, and accommodating. We were on the Chicheemaun dinner cruise and needed an overnight before heading back home. This was perfect for us. The gift shop was open at 8 when the ferry docked.

Love it here! The room we had was clean with a little kitchen that had everything you would need. The bed were not the best but the the whole place, Cafe Pizzeria, Gift Shoppe and all the people there make it a five star for sure. The Cafe Pizzeria place is a great place to get coffee, pizza and almost... More

Don't stay here. Keep driving. Very disappointed in this place. Very outdated. Unfriendly people up here too. Very unclean. The beds were very old. There were spiders everywhere too. I will never stay here again. Keep driving up the Island you can find more places!!!

Outdated, everything looks like its from the 60's- including old bed frame, sheets, couch and tv. Only one outlet, small fridge that was cold, had wifi which was a bonus. Its kinda-clean but so old- we booked this on a whim as its literally right off the chicheemaun, but there are some nicer spots right next door. I dont think... More

Stayed here while on vacation. Motel room had a rustic, cabin look and feel to I which I really liked. Clean and tidy room. Location was great, right across the street from the Chi-Cheemaun ferry. They had no problem waiting for us as we had taken the last ferry from Tobermory and didn't get there until about 10pm. Gift shop... More

We took a last minute trip after winning walk on tickets for the Chi Cheemaun, so with leaving our car in Tobermory we wanted to be close to the ferry. The people at the gift shop were really accommodating and sweet. The room itself was clean, fresh bedding, coffee maker, small fridge and small T.v. with some satellite channels. The... More

chose this place because of the location to the ferry dock, it cost $100.00 per night, if I had known the shape of it, I would have spent the extra $16. bucks and stayed next door, much nicer place, with pool and sat tv, wigwam says it has sat and fridges in all rooms, not true, and as the area...
