Great spot just off the highway. Close to all amenities. Walking distance to restaurants and of course a Tim Hirtons. Amazing for conferences and meetings. Clean, comfy and good customer service. Plan your next function here.

One of the most intricate and well laid out places I have been to. Staff was polite and always available. Bar had excellent choices of liquor, and the location was perfect to suit my needs. Would recommend to anyone.

Upon arrival at the hotel had trouble finding the front desk (lots of hallways, with poor signage). I had to park at the back as it was raining and hotel was busy due to a conference. Front desk staff gave me a room number, but did not direct me as to where to go. There is a tower attached to... More

Thank you for your comments. We continually review our directional signage and look for ways to move our guests through our large full service hotel. We have 2 signs at the front entrance/drive through canopy asking all guests to check in before parking and off loading luggage. This often helps our guests with parking close to their guestroom entrance. More

My company booked this location to hold our seminar, I stayed overnight and when I arrived I was greeted by a freindly staff member. I asked for a Tower room which was clean and comfortable and was given an upgrade, with no hesitation. I really enjoyed the fresh fruit water in the lobby, It was great to fill my water... More

Stopped in when too tired to drive anymore - it easy to get off and back on highway - our room was clean but nothing special, could be updated a bit. Door from outside to stairs/hall wasn't locked during the middle of the night. Front desk staff were friendly and helpful.

Stayed at this hotel as it was one of the few hotels in Barrie that accepted pets. We were put in a ground floor unit on the courtyard but unfortunately, the room did not meet my expectations for a Holiday inn. The room was run down and tired looking and seriously in need of an update. Not sure if this... More

Thank you for your comments on your stay. It is unfortunate that our guestroom that conveniently walks out into or courtyard did not meet your expectations. We do love to welcome guests with their pets and this room location is sought after for easy in and out access. Our outdoor pool is being completely renovated and will be ready in... More

Stayed here for two nights with my spouse and 21 month old. Rooms were clean. Pretty nice breakfast spread! Staff was really nice. Close to the highway. There was a little noise in the hotel due to a hotel team or something.
