I wish I would have stayed here sooner. It's hard to find a decent place to stay in this town, and this is the place to stay. Nice room, great view, great staff, and they offered numerous gluten free dishes in the restaurant. Extremely good food in restaurant as well. Nice surprise.

The location is very nice with lovely views of the water. The rooms are nicely decorated. The cleanliness of the property and the rooms in particular are what stands out. Very clean well maintained room.

We spent the past weekend in Owen Sound for a wedding. Having never been to Owen Sound before, we weren't sure what the accommodations would be like. The Inn on the Bay was perfect for us. As its name suggests, it sits very close to Georgian Bay - a very nice setting. When we arrived, the front desk clerk (Jacqueline)... More

Best Western at Owen Sound always maintains high standards. The rooms are always clean, the carpets are routinely replaced and they continually upgrade and replace worn furniture. This is a well management business that always puts the customer first. They really do go above and beyond.

This hotel is conveniently located a short 5 minute drive from downtown OwenSound and is right on the water. You can walk along the bay even all the way into town, and it's right across the street from the Harry Lumley Bayshore Centre (home of the Owen Sound Attack OHL hockey club), so a perfect place to stay to catch...

The rooms are well appointed and the bed is very comfortable. We also enjoyed the hot tub in the small pool area. This hotel is very up-to-date and clean. I... More
