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 ve1mtc, I would like to apologize for not meeting your expectations during your stay with us. In the future, please let us know if there is any noise disrupting your stay as we would certainly look into resolving it immediately for you. Unfortunately, there is not much we can do about the Canada geese on the waterfront. Many of our guests have enjoyed watching the goslings in the flock. We will be adding new photo's online that should give a better picture of the size of our whirlpools now that renovations are complete. We do try to state that they are only whirlpools but it can be confusing for our guests. Please accept our apologies once for for your experience. We genuinely seek to have every guest enjoy their time at this hotel in Owen Sound.

Very rude staff (Andy)!

Very sad experience even checking in at this hotel. The old guy (I guess Andy) at the front desk is extremely rude. Thinks he owns the hotels and makes you feel as uninvited guests. I read another com... more

Hi vinaymieux, On behalf of our entire hotel staff, please accept my apologies for the poor service received by one of our front desk agents. As we had discussed in person before you left our hotel, we hope that this one person was not able to ruin your entire experience at our hotel. It was great to learn that you enjoyed the interaction with all other hotel personnel specifically in our restaurant. We hope that you found our resolution to be fair and would be grateful for another opportunity to provide you with the full experience you deserve. Thank you for providing this feedback.

Nice Location Along the Bay
