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!

Good But Could Have Been Better

Hi GWM49, Thank you for posting this review of your experience at our hotel. We understand that breakfast is a major component for many guests staying in hotels now. As such, we changed our program from a complimentary continental buffet to a fresh breakfast made to order a few years ago. We have tried to make the choices affordable without forgoing any quality in our dishes. Breakfast options starting at $7.99 is fair value in the restaurant market in Owen Sound. There are options to include this breakfast with your reservation by booking a breakfast rate. I would encourage anyone to try this traditional style of breakfast as our feedback has been excellent and it keeps our guests coming back. We understand that it is not ideal for everyone and apologize that you were left with some disappointment as a result. We hope to earn your business again in the future.

What a delight!
