Stayed here for a kids' hockey tournament. This hotel is not new, but our room was comfortable and clean, and fairly large. Proper sized mini fridge and microwave came in handy. Staff were very helpful and extremely pleasant. We did not use the pool, but lots of other little kids did, and they seemed happy.

Booked two rooms for two nights Feb 19th, and 20th 2015; rooms were dirty, peeling paint. One room smelled of stale smoke so was undoubtedly a smoking room at some point in the past. Heating in one room sounded like a plane taking off but did provide heat, however the room I stayed in the first night we woke small... More

My family stayed here Feb.21, 2015. We arrived just after 5:00pm. We were checked in by a very friendly young girl. However when we entered our room, it had not been cleaned from previous visitors. The beds were messed, garbage on the tables and a dirty bathroom. The next morning we went down for the continental breakfast, they were out... More

I stayed at this hotel for one night in February 2015. Until now, have always been very satisfied with Best Western properties. Upon check-in the room was so cold I could not take my coat off for well over an hour until the ancient heating system kicked out enough heat to make it tolerable. The wallpaper was peeling off the... More

We weren't planning on staying in Barrie. We were traveling north and the roads were quite bad so we decided to stay the night. Everyone else had the same plan. All motels were filling up quite quickly. We checked in around 9:30 in the evening. Because there were 3 adults and a baby, we were looking for a larger room.... More

At check in they recognized my member level. Newspaper available all day. Room is comfortable with mini fridge and great TV. Breakfast area is a bit small but good selection. Internet is good speed connection. For dinner need to take car for good places

The room had a fridge, microwave and coffee maker and a flat screen TV The hotel seems to be in an industrial park. I did hear some vehicle traffic upon waking up.... More

Although the hotel does need some refurbishing, overall it was OK. Nice pool with hot tub and very good breakfast. Our problem was that someone in a nearby room was cooking something awful in their room with the door ajar. The stink wafted down the hallway and entered everyone's room each time you opened the door. When the duty manager... More
