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!

Staff are Excellent but Could Improve on Amenities

19/05/2017 J-me C, Stoney Creek, Canada

Hi J-me C, Thank you for posting this review of your experience at our hotel. The people working at this hotel are what make our reputation so great and I couldn't be more fortunate to have this group here. I am glad that you took the time to suggest areas of improvement for this hotel as well because I would like to provide insight on our efforts to do so. Our cable television provider has been undergoing transition to HD channels and interruptions should subside considerably in the near future. Our breakfast program has been adjusted effective immediately to allow guests to enjoy a classic style breakfast the way they like it without additional charges. Rye toast, sausage, ham, juice, and even sliced tomatoes can be substituted easily to suit guests desires. It is unfortunate that our fitness equipment failed us simultaneously leaving us with two machines; however, new Life Brand fitness equipment is being delivered in the coming weeks. Hopefully the next time you stay in Owen Sound, you will be able to recognize these differences as we continue to work to improve what we offer our guests. Thank you again for posting this feedback.
