My husband and I stayed here for part of our honeymoon. The location was great, although we were on the ground floor and we couldn't see much of the bay. The room was nice with a small sitting area. Everything was always clean. The breakfasts were quite good, as well.

We stayed at at this property from 13 to 16 March in room 462, which is a two queen-size bed room facing south. Property looks well maintained. Hotel is a little far from the downtown, but close to the harbour and the sports arena. Staff were reasonably friendly and welcoming. A very nice room, with comfortable beds and all the... More

Very nice rooms and great view of the Bay. Staff was courteous. Everything was clean and beds were comfortable. It is very quiet as it is far from the busy roads. We seen 3 fishermen setting up tent for ice fishing. We have been at this Best Western a number of times and enjoyed the fireplace in the winter .

Stayed for a couple of days when touring the Georgian Bay area. Price was reasonable - not cheap - and location convenient; when we were there the bay was frozen and could be accessed from the car park. The other side of the hotel borders an industrial area which although unsightly wasn't a major issue. It's a 10 minute walk... More

Hi DesertDrifters, Thank you for your insightful review of our hotel. We are fortunate to be in a convenient location that is also very beautiful. It is my hope that you will be able to return in the summer season to see how beautiful it can be. The tree line along the west side of the hotel acts as a... More

I travel to Owen Sound regularly for business and this hotel is by far the nicest place to stay. After a long day of travel and business arriving at this hotel and the staff calling you by name, processing your check in efficiently and getting you in your comfortable roome quickly is very nice! it's always a pleasure.

Staff are always helpful and polite and the locationis peaceful and quiet. My stay was during the winter so there was some noice from the snowmobilers who seem to... More

Right on the bay, staff are very friendly and accommodating. Hotel is always spotless and the restaurant has good food. The rooms are spacious and very quiet. Internet works well in the rooms and restaurant. In the summer the patio is fantastic over looking the bay.Wouldn't stay anywhere else in Owen Sound!

I stayed here for one night. The parking lot was quite full including a bunch of snow mobiles. Some hockey game going on. I was still able to find a spot very close to the front door. The room was very clean and a decent size with 1 queen bed and a sofa. The "pool" is a very small room... More
