Reviewed April 25, 2013

I have just spent the night at the Comfort Inn. When I first drove up to the parking lot it was quite clean. Then I entered the lobby. I was welcomed by a friendly face at the front desk. The lady was very accomidating . She told me about resaurants and shopping areas. The hallways were clean. My room smelled fresh. It was neat and tidy. When leaving in the morning I has a good breakfast. Front desk inquired how my stay was. Everyone was very helpful. If I was in the area I would stay here.

Stayed March 2013, traveled with family

We booked the Comfort Inn because it was close to the job we were working on. It is clean,close to everything in Owen Sound. You get a 10% at a few restaurants with your room key. They always have coffee on for you 24/7, and they also have cereal, hard boiled egfgs, yogurt, fruit, waffles,danishes, muffins, english muffins, toast every morning for you.
The staff are very helpful & friendly, we have stayed there quite alot! Good bang for your buck!

Room Tip: there is only two floors - no elevator, so if you have bad knees or can't walk, book the 1st flo...

I thought this hotel might be a bit sketchy when I first walked in. It's old and definitley needs a face lift. But the room was clean and the bed comfortable. My only real complaint was the heater was not controlled very well. It was either hot or cold in the room.
Would I stay here again? Probably not.

Thank you for your review of our hotel. This hotel is an older building yes but we are always undergoing updates to provide the guests with a better experience. Some recent updates include 32 inch flat screens in all rooms, 2 new patio areas with full size barbeques for guests to use free of charge and updated rooms. We are sorry you didn’t find the heater controls to your liking, all of the heaters are thermostat controlled it is possible the heater was either set wrong or malfunctioning in either case the front desk staff could have resolved the issue as our priority is your satisfaction.

Very clean place, very efficient, friendly, courteous and knowledgeable staff. Nicely situated. We were lucky that they were serving free snack when we checked in the afternoon. Very good breakfast selection.

I was a little surprised that this hotel was as pricy as it is, given how generic it is. Lobby staff doesn't even have a corkscrew or wine glasses (yay! plastic cup!), toiletries are small, lighting is stark, breakfast is not very good. It's a shame: Owen Sound itself is so gorgeous. I wonder where the right place to stay there is.

Oh, and really: invest in digital thermostats, and get decent (i.e., quiet) HVAC systems. Sheesh.

We stayed March 14th & 15th, 2013. This hotel is not fancy, but we were okay with our experience.
When we arrived, I was a bit concerned because the front lobby is unimpressive to say the least. There were piles of folded sheets on the "breakfast" tables (it was late afternoon when we arrived) and the entrance windows were absolutely filthy.
Once we started down the hallway with our luggage, we discovered that there is no elevator & we had to lug our bags up the stairs. So if you are unable to do that, you may want to request a room on the ground floor.
The room however, was fine. The furniture is a bit outdated, but certainly adequate. The bed is a basic firm hotel bed. The bathroom was very clean and the tub & taps were gleaming. The carpets (both in the room & the hallways, especially edges) could have used a bit more attention, but to me, it's the cleanliness of the bed & the bathroom that are most important.
We had the continental breakfast in the front lobby on the first day of our stay & it was good. The baked items were nice & fresh and the coffee was okay. It's right next door to a Tim Horton's, so that may also be an option if you're fussy about your coffee.
One thing that may be of concern to some travellers is that the side door to the hotel which leads into the stairwell is not locked, even at night. So it's possible that anyone could come into the building unnoticed.
Also, it's a pet friendly hotel, so if allergies are an issue, this might be a consideration. On the other hand, if you're travelling with a dog, they have rooms with patio doors on the ground level which make it very easy to slip out of your room with them.
One thing we took advantage of, is that several restaurants in town gave a 10% off discount if you show your room key. Pretty awesome that the hotel arranged that for their guests!
Overall, we thought we got our money's worth & would likely stay here again.

Thank you for your kind and detailed review of Comfort Inn Owen Sound we appreciate all feedback as we use it as a useful tool to improve our overall service to guests. At certain times our front desk staff is required to help out with the laundry we assure you our tables are clean and only clean laundry is brought out. We are always willing to fulfill requests if the room is available had you mentioned your preference to ground floor we may have been able to switch your room. Thank you for mentioning our continental breakfast and keep in mind within the next few months we will be upgrading to a hot breakfast. The issue of the side door not locking had been brought up with our maintenance department a part needed to be ordered and it is now locking we do apologize for any feeling of insecurity you may have felt. We do look forward to seeing you on your next visit.
