Hotel has a good location and is easy to find. There was ample parking and even provision for recharging electric cars. Vending machines were reasonably priced for snacks and beverages and located conveniently to rooms. The check-in/check-out process went quickly. The ground floor where I stayed smelled of old cigarette smoke and the smelled lingered in the room as well... More

Rooms were clean, breakfast was the average Best Western food which was decent. Pool and hot tub is adequate but a bit outdated. Close to highway and short drive to Canada's Wonderland. Would stay here again as needed. Good for groups and families.

Great place to stay. went with my wife and three children, it was worth every penny of it. Next time if i have to stop in Barrie i know where to go. The Bill at the hotel and the bill amount on the online reservation were different, that threw me off for a bit.

Recently traveled with a group to Barrie and stayed at the Best Western a Royal Oak hotel. Absolutely horrible experience. Clearly, my room was not one of the "renovated" rooms as it was dark / dingy / musty / mold smelling room. I understand that new construction is occurring but it doesn't excuse the bathroom not being cleaned properly (hair... More

I have stayed at this Best Western a few times before, but this time, I was not impressed at all with my stay. Let me begin by saying that I asked EXPLICITLY if they were doing renovations and was told no. I also wanted to ensure that the pool was up and running. Again, I was assured that it would... More

Booked a room with two Queen beds - when I checked in, discovered I had been given a Queen and a pullout couch. Front desk said there was nothing else available and was not willing to provide me with any kind of discount/compensation. Brutal customer service - clerk was rude and abrupt. Rooms are disgusting. One of the families in... More
