I stayed at the Best Western in Owen Sound for a weekend in March. Room had 2 queen beds which were actually fairly comfortable and might have actually been queen beds, not just long doubles. Room was well equipped with a mini fridge and coffee maker, but no microwave. The room was fairly small so it would be pretty impossible...

We stayed at the Best Western Owen Sound on March 3rd and 4th because I couldn’t get a room at a good hotel closer to Blue Mountain that also had free Wi-Fi and a Fitness Center. Owen Sound is about 45 minutes way but it a good road through Thornbury and Meaford. Since we didn’t ski on Friday we called...

I stay at this hotel often. It is extremely clean and the staff are very friendly and helpful. The dining room is above average and the chef often surprises the guests with a dinner feature that can easily compete with a high end gourmet restaurant. Located on Lake Huron with a beautiful view. Saw a swan swimming in the bay...

We came to Owen Sound to attend a funeral. We found the front desk staff when we checked in barely civil. In fact I was left with the impression that the clerk would have preferred we stayed elsewhere. That said, the hotel was clean - the room nice - bed comfortable. The included "breakfast" was mostly cold cereals, instant oatmeal...

I will definitely be back with my family, the rooms were great and the restaurant was amazing. We ate breakfast, lunch and dinner there and were not disappointed. The staff was excellent and cared about making your stay as best as possible. The only thing it is missing is a pool but they have a hot tub, whirlpool and sauna.
