Usually happy with BW but this location depending on who is at the front will not honor platinum member benefits and try to also skimp out on giving you breakfast tickets if you don't ask (which you shouldn't have to). It's happened to me numerous times here but not once at any other BW. Perhaps a staffing issue but occured one too many times for someone loyal to the brand. Otherwise the hotel is relatively clean and generally quiet enough to get a good night's rest.

Hotel's Favourite
First , the front desk person ( Ken I think) was nice and quick. We checked in a few mins after 4 and all rooms were ready, plus all on the same floor as requested. When we checked in the rooms, we were impressed ( and I not the one that is easily impressed !) . Rooms were SPARKLING CLEAN AND FRESH. We got one of our rooms upgraded which was icing on the cake. The hotel was by the water, so beautiful. This is probably one of the most relaxing hotel stays we have had in Canada. The price was good as well which was a plus. Already planning our next trip back in the winter..

Everything is good. Location, cleanliness, service however I wish they could block the connecting door to the other guest room so it’s a sound proof. Luckily, our neighbor slept almost the same time with us. I wonder if they are late sleepers I could probably have to ask to be transferred.

I had a very negative experience at another local hotel (Travelodge Owen Sound) and I ended up leaving 40 minutes after I checked in. I booked at the Best Western on the Bay and immediately upon arrival was impressed by the location and the hotel itself. Ken was a wonderful person from beginning to end. The food was great, fairly priced and convenient. I will come back here every time. Definitely worth the money.
