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 P3691, Thank you for posting this wonderful review for our hotel. It is great to see that you enjoyed your room as well as our restaurant. We are so fortunate to have such a great hotel on the water in Owen Sound. Hopefully you will have the chance to return and enjoy it in nicer weather.

Over all was nice and good. But bed bugs troubled my wife a lot and followed us to our home. That is really what I never expected. I never had trouble like this before I usually travel over weekend to... more

Hi Go49085253266, I can appreciate that you would want to share this experience with your fellow travelers especially with it being such a startling one. It does; however, seem concerning and suspicious that you would go to the trouble of creating a Trip Advisor account just to post this review without ever making an effort to contact the hotel concerning your stay. We are a hotel that holds itself to high standards and we back our product one hundred percent. We would gladly help address any concerns you had potentially going above and beyond to assist in any way. We work hard to stay on top of any bug problems and have already had our Canine bug detection services run through as much of the hotel as possible after reading this review. We have found nothing to report and are still concerned. I would request that you please contact us to help let us know what room you stayed in so we may address both of our concerns. Thank you in advance.

Hi SMR2012vacations, Thank you for posting this review of your experience at our hotel. We are thrilled that you enjoyed the guest room and specifically the beds. We are undergoing some renovations and the new shower tile needs to be buffed to bring the shine back after installation. These showers are gleaming now and do not have the film from grouting any longer. Hopefully you will have the change to return and see the improvements for yourself.
