At check in they recognized my member level. Newspaper available all day. Room is comfortable with mini fridge and great TV. Breakfast area is a bit small but good selection. Internet is good speed connection. For dinner need to take car for good places

The room had a fridge, microwave and coffee maker and a flat screen TV The hotel seems to be in an industrial park. I did hear some vehicle traffic upon waking up.... More

Although the hotel does need some refurbishing, overall it was OK. Nice pool with hot tub and very good breakfast. Our problem was that someone in a nearby room was cooking something awful in their room with the door ajar. The stink wafted down the hallway and entered everyone's room each time you opened the door. When the duty manager... More

This hotel is located right off of Highway 400 and minutes from the Heart of Barrie's waterfront. It provides a great balance between value and quality, in a location that can't be beat. Especially if you're visiting or working on CFB Borden, this hotel had the added value of a very convenient commute while allowing you to enjoy the best... More

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

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
