Stayed with the my wife, toddler and 4 year old,it was perfect. Shannon at check-in was welcoming and swift, reservation was waiting and took only a minute. Staff overall were excellent, from Cindy who apparently works in group sales, who was kind enough to indulge my request for a decaf coffee (food was not her department, but you would not... More

So roomy!. The room and staff were great. The hot tub... More

Was a bit nervous reading some of the reviews about noise etc...that being said, this was a very professional, modern, clean hotel. Hotels in Barrie can be hit or miss but this one exceeded my expectations. Appears some reno's have been completed. Very friendly, quick and efficient front desk staff. Small pool but well kept and clean. Nice hot tub.... More

Good value for the money all in all. I enjoyed my stay there and had to stay a second night unexpectedly but in a different room so I got a good feel overall for the hotel. I liked everything about the hotel except for a few things that I mentioned in the review I left. The bathroom, although very clean,... More

As soon as you walk in the door you can smell how clean it is. the hot complimentary breakfast was great. the only thing that was strange was the sheets... More

Average cleanliness, polite & courteous staff, good breakfast. Lots of noise at night that staff didn't call to end until 11:30pm. Room not made up. Overwhelming smell of air freshner. Would likely look elsewhere on next stay.

I know it's not entirely the hotel's fault how loud the guests are, but they didn't do anything to stop the children sprinting up and down the halls and the drunk adults yelling all night. The front desk doesn't often answer the phone when you're calling to complain. As for the hotel, the room is adequate. Nothing special. Clearly there... More

Made a last minute reservation for a night, hotel was full three separate hockey tournaments. Despite that our stay was great, the law was laid down and noise from the teams stopped before ten pm. We had one problem with our room that was resolved quickly. My son loved the pool and hot tub. Breakfast was crowded but bacon, sausages... More

I should start by saying we stayed at this hotel only for one night as attending a wedding in Barrie. The hotel was clean and neat When we checked in the person at the desk noticed that we are on a floor with a kids hockey team and immediately moved us to a quieter floor - which was so nice....

Stayed here for a wedding this past weekend. Rooms were as expected, nothing fancy and not brand new by any stretch. The bathroom was mouldy and the shower head sprayed in every direction but down towards your head. Room ventilation wasn't good and smelled. The breakfast was decent, customer service was good and the rooms were fairly sound proof (we... More
