This hotel surprised us, we expected an older hotel with and outdated look and we got the exact opposite. I'm someone who always finds something to complain about, and this hotel gave me nothing to complain about. Everything was perfect our whole stay. Andy at the desk was super helpful with giving us a run down of the area and...

Appearance of hotel is very good; sits right on a large bay, and therefore is very scenic. Check-in process was a fiasco. 2 rooms reserved a month ago under one name, and had to make sure our room points were properly credited. We were initially given Rm 130, but realized immediately upon entering that it was already occupied! Back at...

This hotel is well run and comfortable. It has a great location, a walking path along the water just outside the door, and the staff were very friendly. I recommend the hotel and would stay here again.

We had an excellent experience. The rooms were very clean - staff were very friendly - the restaurant went out of its way to accommodate our child with a food allergy. We would definitely stay here again. Great experience!

My daughter lives in Owen Sound, so when we go to visit for a weekend we always stay at the Inn on the Bay. The hotel is on the bay, with interesting walking paths that run along the water. The rooms are comfortable and safe. We typically stay on the key access fourth floor. The hotel restaurant is well appointed,...

This is a sold, well-run hotel that is comfortable and without problems. It is a lovely building well situated on a bay with good walking paths. The staff are superbly friendly and competent. The breakfast arrangement was especially good.

First, I would like to extend my sincere thanks to the wonderful staff at this hotel. We initially drove to Sauble Beach for vacation and our accommodations there did not work out.

The room was great, the dining room,food and service was exceptional. We where asked by the server as she took our order,if there was any allergy concerns. At breakfast the hotel manager came around asking how our stay had been. What a nice surprise. We definitely would stay here again if our travels took us to Owen Sound.

Great setting, right on the bay! Helpful staff. Very clean rooms. Quiet at night. The free breakfast offers very little variety, though. Hiking and biking trails nearby. Plenty of great beaches within 30 minute drive. Great scenic drives nearby in Beaver Valley.
