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!

Hi Larry M, I would like to personally apologize for your check in experience at our hotel. This is certainly not the standard we set for ourselves as you will see in other reviews. We are so well known for having caring and compassionate staff members so this feedback is a bit troubling. I will be sure to address it so we continue to maintain our reputation. I am glad that you enjoyed our clean and comfortable rooms as well as the service from the dining room. I will be sure pass on your compliments Shaina for her efforts during breakfast. Thank you for taking the time to post this valuable feedback. Hopefully we will see you again someday under better circumstances.
