I recently spent 5 nights at the Best Western Royal Oak inn for work related purposes. First of all I have to say there is nothing royal about that hotel. The carpet in the room felt humid under my feet and there was a smell of dampness in the room. The washroom was even in worse condition. The walls and... More

Okay it's a Best Western and you know, not a resort hotel. But for what it is, it was excellent. We stayed in the OTHER Best Western in SLO and it was a clean, simple hotel but soooo different. There were no interior hallways, and the pool was so cold that even during a heat wave it was too hard... More

I had to go to Toronto for medical reasons....rather than travel 8 hours after my appointment my husband and I decided to stay at the Best Western Royal Oak Inn, in Barrie. We had an excellent stay and would recommend this hotel for great service, food and accommodation.

A portable fan was provided (the windows did not open) but still it was 26C in the room...the room was a bit tired looking but clean... More

Was supposed to stay at this hotel for 2 nights for a business trip. Once seeing that some of the linens were stained, the shower dirty, etc. I decided to only stay the one night. In the pictures, the hotel looks good but was not impressed once I got there. Staff was friendly but the actual room was not good.

We decided to escape the great north but didn't feel like going as far as Toronto. We settled on Barrie and realized that the hotels were booking up quick. There must have been something going on in town. This was our fourth choice and we booked the "King Jetted Tub". We paid ~$175 plus tax for one night. Definitely over... More
