“The Best Western In Owen Sound”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Inn On the Bay really is the best place in Owen Sound to stay. They staff and very friendly and really go the extra mile for you. Rooms are always clean and the hotel is properly maintained. The view of the bay is awesome. You begin to unwind the minute you drive onto the property. I have stayed at this hotel over 100 nights and never had a bad experience.

Was in Toronto for a wedding August 17th and stayed at the the BEST WESTERN INN ON THE
BAY at Owen Sound. Arrived on the 16th and departed on the 18th. The accomodations were very
clean and modern, the help was professional and very helpful. We arrived on a very busy weekend
and would have like to enjoy some of the local hap complaints about the foopenings but being in the Bridal Party did not have
the time, most of the items we were interested in were booked solid. Our room faced the
Gerogian Bay of Lake Huron and was very picturesque, breathtakingly beautiful.
No complaints about the food, breakfast was warm, tasty and plentyful as was dinner, and the help
was very friendly. We enjoyed our stay in Canada and when I arrived and asked question to get
familiar with the area the gentleman at the desk was so helpful I knew my stay would be well spent,
looking forward to a return visit next season to enjoy the motel and festivities.
looking forward to

Can't ask for much more. Great place to stay when we need to work i Owen Sound. Very clean and great location right off the bay. Carpets are showing their age and are a little worn but everything else has been maintained.

Hi Steve O,

I would like to thank you for your patronage in staying at our hotel when travelling on business. We appreciate that you continue to stay here and recommend us to others.

All of the staff at this hotel take great pride in keeping a clean and well maintained hotel for our guests. I am well aware of the condition of our carpets and they are due for replacement in the next few years. I should also mention that they are scheduled for professional cleaning as our busy season comes to a close. The carpets start to look worse after a long summer but they will be much better after some attention from our cleaning professionals.

Thank you for providing such a nice review.

Travelled up to TOBERMORY for the Long Weekend with the wife. We stayed in OWEN SOUND, Room 364 at the BEST WESTERN Inn on the Bay, a large suite complete with huge Jacuzzi and fireplace. Room was $300.00 tax included. We both thought the room was a little over-priced... The room and hotel in general was exceptionally clean. The bathroom was quite spacious and the shower was terrific..., great water pressure with the adjustable shower head.., so much so.., I'm going to purchase that same shower head from a company called "OXYGENICS". The Jacuzzi was just amazing.., I mean it really rocked with bubbling, thrusting, water flow... Limited channels on the wide screen T.V. The bed was one of the most comfortable we've ever slept in.. Lots of places to sit down in the room. We were a little disappointed in that we did not get any view of the harbour.... Air-conditioning worked well and very little noise when turned on. Great sleep! I would stay at this hotel again. We had a late night Supper at "MONTANA'S" and OMG it was spectacular. Food was terrific and absolutely great service by Chelsey the waitress. G.F.

Room Tip: Room 364 comes complete with Jacuzzi and fireplace. It's one of two most expensive rooms you can...

Our two nights here were pleasant. The room had the usual amenities and was quiet and comfortable. The staff was courteous and helpful. The complementary breakfast was typical of hotels of this ilk: cold French toast and cereal, hard boiled eggs, fruit salad, toast, muffins and pastries, etc. Excellent coffee.

Hi Hunter9,

It is great that you could enjoy a peaceful two night stay in our hotel. It is very busy this time of year and we do our best to keep the peaceful quiet atmosphere that we are so well known for.

Our breakfast program does offer all of the basics on the continental buffet as a complimentary amenity for all guests staying in the hotel. Guests also have the option of ordering from a full breakfast menu and having breakfast made the way they prefer. It does come at a cost after discount with your breakfast voucher, but it is well worth it.

Thank you for providing feedback on your experience in our hotel. I hope you will return in the future when travelling this way.

Our family has a very enjoyable stay at this hotel. The kids can play the balls in the green pasture while the adults can enjoy the beautiful sunset by the bay. The playground in the nearby community center is also a great place for the kids. The restaurant's food was great with very reasonable price.

Hi Derek C,

It is great to see another family that enjoyed their experience at this hotel. Although we do not have a full size swimming pool, we do have plenty of property for kids to play games and the playground you mentioned is just steps away. I hope that your family was also able to enjoy the whirlpool as it is a nice area to relax as a group.

Thank you for taking the time to write about your experiences here. I hope that you will return again in the future to enjoy our peaceful little city.
