Explore Hotel

Who says you cant enjoy all of the beauty of Mother Nature and the convenience of local shops and restaurants at the same Owen Sound hotel?

This BEST WESTERN Inn on the Bay hotel gives guests no shortage of pampering along with a fantastic location right on the shore of the Georgian Bay. Owen Sound is located where the Niagara Escarpment meets Georgian Bay so stunning views and fresh air are standard here. Were less than 10 minutes away from three beautiful waterfalls with hiking trails, so outdoor lovers and photographers have struck gold. This is one Bruce Peninsula hotel that never disappoints.

Less than 20 minutes away from Sauble Beach, there are plenty of opportunities to soak up some sun and surf. This is the best choice for Sauble Beach hotels because we are right in the heart of this gorgeous region. We are also adjacent to the Bayshore Arena, where dozens of Owen Sound hockey tournaments take place every year. None of the other Owen Sound hotels can compete.

Explore the view from the Chi Cheeman Ferry which operates out of Tobermory. Practice your golf swing at Cobble Beach, Legacy Ridge, or Stone Tree Golf Courses. Snowmobiling in Grey County is a real treat and this Georgian Bay hotel is the perfect destination for snowmobile accommodations with the hotel located right on the snowmobile trail.

We have a partnership with Georgian College Owen Sound for all training courses. Our Hydro One rates for accommodations in Grey County make this the perfect location for Hydro One employees.

We are the only hotel located right on the shoreline of Georgian Bay so you can enjoy spectacular views from our restaurant patio and conference center meeting space in Owen Sound. We are also the perfect location for all Owen Sound Weddings with a beautiful location, guestroom accommodations for guests and full catering services available.

Book a spacious guestroom or meeting space at BEST WESTERN Inn On The Bay and get ready to be amazed!

When booking this hotel, we thought it was a bit pricey. However it was definitely worth the few extra dollars. I note one reader found the rooms dated. I was informed that all rooms have been updated... more


Dated, but decent, hotel, but way overpriced for the location and service

22/09/2016 LA_T2012, Toronto, Canada

I came here a few times for business. The staff were all fantastic, but the room was very dated. The hotel and the dining room were overpriced, so I would head elsewhere in town for dinner or lunch.... more

Hi LA_T2012, I would like to thank you for coming back to this hotel when you travel to Owen Sound on business. Returning guests are very important to any business and we appreciate it. When you stayed here, I am glad that you noticed our efforts in cleanliness and excellent customer services. These are the features we are so well known for as you can see from the majority of our reviews. I will admit that some points in this hotel are dated. The building is over 30 years old after all. I would like to point out that nothing in this hotel is damaged or weathered to the point that it is not aesthetically pleasing or fully functional. All the furniture and fixtures are actually in great shape at this property. The price is a reflection of the the quality and location of this hotel while market conditions do play a factor in our pricing strategy as well. I can understand that we are not priced comparably to other Best Westerns but we do strive to be better than an average hotel. My hope is that you will continue to stay with us as we continue renovations and improvements for our guests. Thank you for taking the time to post this feedback.

I have not stayed at many Best Westerns, but I was impressed with this one in Owen Sound. Stayed 2-nights as part of a wedding block of rooms (wedding was not at the hotel). Our room in the 3rd floor ... more
