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. Just 30 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!

Hi David W, Thank you for providing this valuable feedback regarding your experience at our hotel. It is great that you enjoyed your stay here and can appreciate some of what we are well known for in Owen Sound. I apologize for the hot tub as I believe the temperature was a result of a failing heater that is repaired now. I want you to know that we take this feedback seriously and will be using it to improve upon what we are currently doing. Hopefully you will see that during your next visit to Owen Sound.

Hi gunter419, We are thrilled that you enjoyed our New Year's Eve celebration and would look forward to returning again in 2018. This was our fourth year doing this event and certainly seemed to be the most successful judging by the compliments we received. Looking forward to December 31, 2018, we will have a challenge in improving upon this year and we hope to see you there.

Hi patc2018, Thank you for posting such a great review for our hotel. I am glad that Ken could help you arrange your trip to Owen Sound and even happier to see you enjoyed it so much that you will be returning.

Hi NewbieTraveller57, Please accept my apologies for not being able to accommodate a table for you on the second night of your stay. You make a good point about communicating to our guests when we expect to be busy in the restaurant. I am glad that you enjoyed your initial experience in our restaurant enough to look forward to returning the second night. It has become a very popular place to eat and we may start recommending to all guests that reservations are a good idea. On a whole, I hope you found your room adequate and would still consider returning in the future. I would gladly make it a special treat for you if you would be kind enough to contact me directly. Thank you for posting this feedback.
