Reviewed yesterday NEWvia mobile

The room was OK. The bed was comfortable showerhead good water pressure. The only downside is that it was a little close to the highway so that was a little bit of noise which affected my sleep a little bit.

First time in this hotel. Have been to other hotels in Barrie, this one had a hot tub. Got a great price. Check in was fast and easy. Our room 124 was on the main floor in the rear of the building and you could park right outside your room. The room was newly renovated and very very nice. We...

This hotel is currently under renovations,so take note. Lobby and main floor are being updated. The rooms however are still quite dated. There is no restaurant, however it is centrally located with all kinds of options no more than 10 min drive. The room was clean and quite large. The bed was very comfortable. The only real concern I had...

Will be glad when construction is done, I know a hotel has to upgrade but it seems like it has been going on forever. Despite all of this the front desk staff are always courteous and helpful and the breakfast lady is one of the reasons we keep going back, she can't do enough for you, especially using the temporary...

We all really enjoyed ourselves. We were given a main floor room with access to the parking lot. It was super convenient to be able to park right outside. I was travelling with 3 children so the accessibility to grab all of our stuff was perfect. The pool and hot tub are pretty decent, a little too much chlorine but...

staff were very apologetic about the construction that was underway to replace the entrance and reception area and gave us little gift bags with goodies in appreciation of our patience with reconstruction. Good hot breakfast, Best scrambled eggs ever! Comfortable bed, pillows were too puffy to sleep comfortably on. Very pleasant helpful staff.

Although the lobby was under construction, everything else about our stay was good. The hotel compensated by providing us with a "compliments bags with chips, chocolate bar and 2 water bottles. The room was clean, decorated nicely, and we were able to park directly outside our room.

Needed this break over two days of outdoor education workshops with a local school board. Clean,quiet room, excellent staff with helpful instructions and local area maps, and a great night's sleep. Even the four young hockey teams in for a tournament packed it in early! A very convenient location for anyone doing business in the Barrie area.
