The Best Western on the Bay is "Where you want to be" within Owen Sound. It has a great view of the bay from the majority of their rooms and since it is new, it is very clean and well appointed. The restaurant food is great and reasonably priced, and while there is no pool, there is a spa area... More

Recently spent one night at this hotel on beautiful Georgian Bay. Perfect, good food, great staff, clean. Would recommend this hotel to everyone. A little pricier than other Best Western Hotels but worth the view. continental breakfast included or can use the coupon for a few dollars off the regular breakfast menu.

I stayed in this hotel on business trip but it felt way better due to its location. It is steps away from the bay and if you like running or biking , the hotel is adjacent to pathways leading to Harris Park or even further to Inglis Falls. This is a clean place with good service. They have small gym... More

This hotel is located on a quiet street with no traffic and a great view of Georgian Bay. Rooms are comfortable and clean although a little on the small side. Staff are friendly and there is lots of free parking. There is a restaurant on site. This is probably the best choice for a hotel stay in Owen Sound.

We recently stayed at Inn on The Bay after a country side drive this past Sunday. We decided to make a mini vacation out of the day trip and booked into Best Western. The Scenery was beautiful, being right on the bay. The hotel is steps away from the water and a walking path. The hotel itself was well maintained,... More

Hi Cindy K, It is great to see that we were able to exceed your expectations while you stayed in our beautiful hotel. Although it was built in 1987, we have done many updates/renovations to keep our facilities looking clean and up to date. We will continue this trend with more significant renovations in the coming year! Our location, cleanliness... More

This hotel is located on a lovely waterfront. It is well appointed with a lovely bar and restaurant. The rooms are roomy, clean and comfortable. The staff are very helpful. The hotel appear to put a lot of importance on service and it certainly shone through. It would be nice if the hotel had a pool, but all the other... More

We only spent one day in Owen Sound. We found the hotel with no problem....checked in early and received an upgrade to the 4th floor in the tower. Thanks to Sandra. Very personable and knows her job. So impressed. Today when you travel and enter a hotel the first person you see is the hotel manager/associate. If they are well... More

Hi fishonMi, I must admit, it is very gratifying to read your comments regarding our hotel and staff. We all work very hard to make each guest feel welcome and appreciated so it is nice to see that reflected in your review. Our beautiful location and modern hotel are easy to appreciate, but it is the employees here that make... More

Be very careful if you make a telephone reservation with this hotel. I made a reservation for 3 people in a two room unit. I forgot to get the name of the person who made the reservation. When we arrived, the hotel insisted on increasing the rate for the room as we had a third person. It was not a... More

Hi 1772_on_the_road, I would like to apologize for the confusion over your reservation at our hotel. I am aware of your situation and the reservation was originally made for two guests in the room which may have been an error on our part. For that reason, we should have honored the original rate you reserved. The small increase in cost... More

Thanks to the Staff(s) and the hotel facilities, Best Western gets it right. We have never had a disappointing stay at a Best Western facility; particularly, Marysville, WA, Owen Sound, ON, Sooke, BC, and Spokane. WA.
