I stayed here in March 2014 and found it to be clean, quiet and friendly. No extras here but the breakfast was good, rooms were reasonably spacious and no unpleasant surprises. Staff were courteous and friendly and the hotel was reasonably conveniently located. Just here for a night but they delivered in all the basic areas. I would recommend this... More

I travel tons for business so I am a bit of a hotel snob. I thought this hotel was clean, well located, the staff were helpful and I would highly recommend it if you need a place to stay in Owen Sound. I stayed here with my 3 kids on the way to Tobermory and they all enjoyed it too.

Stayed here two nights, one night paid for with points, (Diamond Best Western Cardholder for years), the next night credit card. Was told that I wouldn't be receiving breakfast vouchers worth a paltry $6 for the night I paid for with points! Cheapness such as this annoys customers and I will not be staying here again. I have had two... More

Hi Mark F, I would like to start by apologizing for the mistake that was made by one of our staff members during your stay. It is not; nor will it ever be our policy to withhold complimentary breakfast from any guest staying in our hotel. You should have received breakfast vouchers for each morning during your stay and I... More

The exterior is very appealing, clean and tidy. The interior is fantastic with its circular stair case. The breakfast room is huge and spacious.The food is typical, nothing great but since it is included in the price of the room it was sufficient.The room was quite large including the bathroom. Everything was very clean and well stocked.The location is stunning,... More

…unless you practice mindfulness meditation and don't mind bare springs and sheets with rips and holes. The service was friendly but unaccommodating, and the soundproofing was under expectation. The rooms were clean, however, and the breakfast ok for a continental breakfast. Overall, low value for money spent. I had to rent two rooms since my mother was staying with us.... More

Hi Ruth V, I am genuinely concerned over the experience you had at our hotel. I am working on having our sofa beds replaced as soon as possible because it is clear that they are not the most comfortable to sleep on and I want to change that right away. I personally investigated the ripped sheets and found that your... More

All accommodations were top notch. Rooms were clean, towels thick, plenty of pillows, sanitized TV remote. Walking path directly behind hotel along the Owen Sound Bay. Great sunset viewing. Excellent restaurant and food.

We had a nice double room. There was a good restaurant, and the hotel has a lovely location close to town but with a nice walk along the Bay past the recreation centre. The restaurant has a view across the sound. The staff that we encountered were pleasant and friendly.
