This Best Western has clean, comfortable rooms. The room was spacious and relatively quiet. The location, near Highway 400, was ideal for me to get to the airport in the morning. Access to theatres and restaurants is also very good from this location (although you will have to drive). There are very few amenities within walking distance.

Lots of choices. Great crunchy waffle. Quick food refill. Good service. Only problem is rooms have smoke smell even though it says smoke free. Great for short stay. Pool is small but clean. Bathroom has no shower cap, lotion is too little only enough one time use for one person. Not enough for 2 ppl.

My wife and I stayed overnight while visiting friends for a party. If you're looking for a clean, comfortable and friendly place to stay, this hotel fits the bill. We appreciated the nice pool and the above average breakfast bar! I strongly recommend this hotel if you're in the Barrie area as it very convenient to HWY. 400.

Excellent value for a Best Western. Staff are beyond helpful (especially the afternoon and night staff) and location in Barrie is within 30 mins to various attractions and good dining. Rooms could use some updating, but aside from that, all is very good.

My family stayed for one night for a skiing getaway. The good: location near Hwy 400; free parking; friendly service; good included breakfast with lots of hot and cold choices including a waffle making station.

the front desk staff are very friendly and the rooms are spacious and modern with decent rates. But the breakfast room is crammed and uncomfortable, and was overpacked and most of the food was good but the ONLY fruit choice was very green non ripe bananas. I filled out their survey with my suggestions and concerns and got some form... More

Good hotel. Nothing too flashy nor extravagant, just a clean, relatively inexpensive, well-maintained place to stay. As a bodybuilder, I wish hotels would just add a simply bench press and some weights in their fitness centre, but honestly that's a mundane criticism. I enjoyed my visit.
