Our family was in town for my daughter's dance competition and we stayed 2 nights. We were very happy with the service and the room. Averall appearance of hotel was great inside and out. Helpful front desk personal and a good breakfast.

Upon entering our room, it was apparent this had been a smoking room. further, the room was in need of maintenance. The shower curtain... More

I was in Barrie to attend to a family matter, and chose this property as the location was close to where I needed to be. I recognize this is a value hotel, so did not expect luxurious amenities, but I do still expect them to be clean and well maintained. The kitchenette and bath were sub-par for cleanlienss and maintenance,... More

While the building shows signs of aging the staff more than makes up for any deficiencies with a positive upbeat attitude. While close to Highway 400 it is quiet. The swimming pool and hot tub were a welcome relief during each of the four days we stayed while visiting family in the area. The fitness room machines needed some repairs,... More

We were moving and had to stay in a hotel for 7 nights. It was the best stay we could have had under the circumstances. Staff were excellent and the hotel is clean and well kept. We would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a stay in the Barrie area.

Hotel was full on weekend. Noisy in the halls late at night. Breakfast room was full. No eggs for breakfast. No bowls for cereal. Bed mattress not comfortable. Located beside major highway with high level traffic noise.

I booked through PriceLine.com and the only rooms available for a whopping $150 was "Executive Suites" our "Kitchenette Suites". I chose the "King Executive Suite" and it was horrible! I always travel with my own Lysol wipes so when I saw there was a Jacuzzi bath in the middle of the room I thought I would partake. I did a... More

Could have sworn I reserved my room through Best Western on line, but upon my arrival was told that the reservation had been made through expedia.ca. (For the record, I have not had good dealings with expedia.ca - and vowed never to use them again). As a result of this, the hotel would not honor the Best Western Rewards program,... More

Thank you for taking the time to share your comments. It can confusing with the number of offers available on line. We apologize that we are not able to give additional discounts or Best Western Rewards when rooms have been booked through a 3rd party site such as Expedia. We are glad you enjoyed our hot tub, pool and found... More
