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

Really can't say enough about the professional service. The staff were very accommodating, and always willing to provide advice, especially on the location of shops in the area. I stayed only the one night, but definitely enjoyed myself. I was able to park right up to my room, which was an added bonus.

My friend, her husband and I were in Barrie to attend a memorial celebration for my friend's mother. Unfortunately there was a Pee Wee Hockey tournament going on in the city and the hotel was full of young boys and their parents.

My partner and I visit Barrie once a month for business and to visit family and we always stay at the Best Western. It has become our home away from home. The hotel staff are always friendly and helpful, our room is always problem-free, and the breakfast in the morning is perfect to get our day started.
