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. We're 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.

Room clean, comfortable bed. Price for a suite was reasonable and was quiet. Friendly staff. Restaurant food was average but the turn off for me was the gratuity being automaticly tacked on to my bill. Won’t eat there again because of that.
