Always a good stay. The only thing that disappointed me had nothing to do with the Inn. Across the street the Sports Bar/Restaurant was gone! So, nothing really within walking distance to enjoy as in years gone by.

This was an overall horrible experience. I do not recommend staying here if you value cleanliness and customer service. When we first arrived it was clear that the motel had been getting regular calls asking for last minute reservation. The staff's demeanor and tone suggested she was getting tired of telling people that everything was booked and that to her... More

After traveling for 8 hours we chose Barrie to stop for an overnight stay. We chose Comfort Inn based on the chain's positive reputation. Sadly this hotel did not measure up. Upon checking in, the front desk was advised that occupants in our room have mobility challenges & we were given a 1st floor room as the hotel does not... More

Pretty dirty..stains on rugs etc. I looks like it has been remodeled. Rooms in Barrie are hard to find on weekends..so you may have to stay here. The other comfort inn in Barrie is decent..( I thought this is where I booked), but it was at this location..disappointed..

Room full of spiderwebs hanging from the yellowish popcorn sealing, air conditioning blowing old dust. Only good experience with the hotel is , the understanding from the manager,... More

In my experience, this hotel is under-rated in Trip Advisor, and for that reason I've shown an excellent rating. There are a number of positives: location, room cleanliness, service, and service staff are excellent. It was so nice to have an exceptionally clean bathroom and shower curtain. Breakfast is fairly good, reasonable selection and its kept stocked. Sleep quality is... More
