We booked this hotel while looking for a cheap place to stay while visiting the beached in Barrie. I was very pleasantly surprised to walk in to a clean, King suite with a pull out couch and little living room. This room was recently renovated and the furniture in our room was new and the bed very comfortable. The only...

I can't say anything positive about this place...the room stinks the AC unit doesn't work, the towels are old and off white and housekeeping failed to clean our room after our first night. I try and stay positive about everything, but I can't stand laziness.

This was a decent room. We had problems with the door keys but over all stay was good. Had a couple of restaurants next door. It was right off the highway so it was easy to access. Rooms were being renovated as well.

The rooms were very nice. Recently re-done, and the bed was very comfy. The front lobby was under renovation, so it looked a little rough by the front, but the rooms made up for it! Very quiet and very clean.

The renovations started last year, looks like just the lobby to do now. The improvements are wonderful. We had a double queen suite with the hot tub. A minor problem with 1 TV that was replaced right away. Very quiet even though it's close to the major highway. Location is great. The staff is doing a great job even though...

We checked in on Friday May 20 as we were going to a concert at Casino Rama in Orillia. They are renovating the lobby so check-in was directed through another door. Check-in was fast and easy. Walked up a flight of stairs to 2nd floor to our room. Room was a good size, vanity area, full bathroom, closet w/iron/board, 2...

Comfortable, very clean, newly renovated! It's very conveniently located and near several good restaurants. Breakfast was very good. Although, the breakfast room is the hotel lobby, which makes it a little awkward. Great price too! Yes, I would definitely recommend it!

In Barrie for a conference. I had a Junior Suite. It was clean, spacious, and comfortable. The bathroom sparkled, the carpets were clean, all "supplies" were stocked up. I had a small fridge, microwave and coffee maker - everything I needed. The breakfast was simple and good. I especially appreciated the fact that there were gluten-free options. It doesn't have...
