Just an overnight and glad to see that they still are the best around!! The service at the front desk both checking out and in was delightful and the restaurant is a hidden gem in Owen Sound!! Service by Jess was great and the food again outstanding!! THE best Onion soup in the world and burger to die for!!

Found the internet very fast for a hotel making up and downloading quick and simple!! Can't wait for our annual fishing trip this year! Great job guys and gals!!

Room Tip: Bay view are nice rooms!!

nice place... clean, good location and good customer service. if there was a free breakfast as advertised they need to do more to promote it. no mention in lobby and the hotel book in room only said breakfast was available for purchase? mixed messages and hopefully not false advertising.. only complaint was careless mixup at checkin... gave me wrong room number and key so when i went to room it was already occupied.. thank goodness the person inside was blowing their hair dry or else it would have bern awkward and embarrassing. desk clerk didnt understand what was wrong and was going to call room until i pointed out on my registration paper he gave me a different room number. need to be more attentive and careful.

It is great to see that you enjoyed your experience at our hotel overall. We appreciate your patience and understanding during our mix up but this does not make it acceptable. I want to assure you that we have made all of the precautions to help ensure that wrong keys are never handed out again. It is critical for guest safety and privacy that we eliminate any concern over this. We will guarantee complete accuracy in this manner. Our breakfast program communications will also be reviewed for clarity and transparency. I want to thank you for the genuine feedback and acknowledge that it will be put to good use. We will look forward to seeing you again someday in the future.

We did not stay in the hotel. We had a meal from the Savour Owen Sound menu and all four of us thought the meal and presentation was excellent. We've made plans to go back on a Friday to check out their Friday night specials!

Stayed here for a hockey tournament and found the hotel was very clean and well maintained.

Upgraded to a king suite and found it had lots of room to spread out (fireplace was nice touch).

Rooms have a mini fridge and microwave.

Restaurant in the hotel is ok but very pricy for burgers and stuff.

Planned a trip into Ontario with the wife. Spent 2 nights here. Very nice stay. Had the large suite with a view of the river and sound. Everything was comfortable. This hotel is close to downtown and close to all the waterfalls in and around town. The is a lot to do in Owen Sound, and The Best Western added to our experience. Check it out.

Room Tip: Nice stay in a good location.
