First of all, we notice a soil comforter on our bed, then all night we heard voices coming from all around... babies, kids, men screaming, the place is not insulated for noise. I felt like scratching all night. I just felt llike this place needs a good cleaning, feels grungy, smelly! So.... we crossed over to the Quality Inn next... More

Based on the information you provided, you did not stay in our Traditional Section as it does not offer comforters but instead triple sheet bedding. The remainder of our rooms were completed a few years ago and typically our guests really enjoy them. We... More

Nice room, clean, good pool, good beds, breakfast good, and easy to find. Typical of Best Western quality and would stay there again if in the area. Not many restaurants within walking distance but some fast food ones.

We stayed in Barrie for 4 nights while visiting family. We've stayed at this hotel once before and we really enjoy it. The rooms are big with plenty of space for a family to move around.

The hotel is an average Best Western, but what sets it apart is the extremely exceptional customer service. Every staff member there greats you with a warm smile and a friendly greeting. I spend about 6 to 8 nights a month there and it truly is like a second home.

Thank you for providing your feedback! We do offer different rates on our website when booking online with an advanced purchase; as well, pricing does fluctuate based on weekdays and weekends.

Recently had a 3 night stay at this hotel...location is decent, if you don't mind adult video stores, witnessed drug deals in the parking lot, and constant construction nearby. Easy access to downtown. My positive experience ends here, however. Imagine my surprise when I returned home to find that I had nearly $300 worth of unauthorized, fraudulent charges to my... More

Your satisfaction is important to us and why an adjustment was already made to your bill. It is our understanding reservations had been made through a 3rd party booking site and this company has been in contact with you. We would be happy to further discuss your concerns by contacting us directly at the hotel. More

We had problems with tv remote, faucet in bathroom, small crowded breakfast room, people smoke outside your room and you can not open your window. And there is no fan inside. Bathrooms need renovation and non smoking needs to be reenforced with non smoking inside and outside hotel. Could not wait to leave.
