My husband and I stayed at the Royal Oak Inn for the 3 nights of our honeymoon (in the king suite). The place was clean, well kept, the bed was very comfortable, and the staff was very friendly...all for a reasonable price. We would definitely stay again.

It was central to all our games. We booked 11 rooms with parents and boys (16 and 17year old). The only complaint was... More

They charged us for a broken TV that we did NOT break - $700 bill to our credit card with NO warning what so ever. Trying to deal with them is a no go - General Manager won't listen to any reason and refused to return calls for weeks. DO NOT STAY AT THIS HOTEL

The service of the staff was excellent. The pool was a nice temperature and very clean areas. The room was a good size and our bathroom was like brand new. The only complaint I have is a personal one. The pillows are too soft so you need a few for each person and the bed was a bit hard for... More

I've stayed here a bunch of times and it never disappoints. Now it is just better looking. They've done a reno and it's really nice. It's easy to find, parking is easy, breakfast is included, wifi is free it's great for travelling though. Not much of a place to walk from. The beds are comfy and the showers are hot.... More

The property is well maintained. Offers free Parking. It has an elevator and stairs. The room was clean. I was close to the road so road noise did come in the room. It is better than its neighbor Quality Inn. This property is close to Hwy 400. I will recommend this to everyone. Staff is Excellent. I will stay here... More

I stayed here for the second time this year and it is never a disappointment. The overnight desk person Praveen is a prime example of what customer service should be. He was friendly, helpful and went above and beyond when the ATM wasn't working. Every time I am in Barrie, there is no place I would rather stay than the... More

you will not be disappointed, we were very pleased with it all.We would use this again if we are in need and in the area. Because of the easy to fine location, we found it easy to get to Centre City Toronto. Quiet and plenty of parking.
