We stayed at the Comfort Inn for a volleyball tournament March 3-5. The hotel had a great rate for those staying for the tournament and included a decent hot and cold breakfast. The room was an adequate size for two, and for the most part the hotel was quite comfortable.It was located in a great location right off the highway... More

We stayed here for a broom ball tournament in Feb. 2014 with children. Nice easy location, Tim Hortons, Wendy's and Pizza Hut are all next door which was very convenient. Lots of free parking and free wifi. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was included, with a good variety, everything looked good but nothing tasted that great.

Stayed here for a weekend for a broomball event. Rooms were clean, service was great, staff were friendly. As soon as the snow began, the exits were salted. We had the continental breakfast, the bagel I took had mold on it, muffins were dry. So next day we just had fruits and yogurt.

Lets start with the good. The location is just off the 400 highway, there is a Tim Hortons next door and a couple other restaraunts within walking distance. Check in was quick and check out. We paid for the room with Choice Rewards points so thankfully it didn't cost us any actual money! The king suite was quite large and... More

Hotel was right off the highway. Staff very helpful directing me to "Downtown" Barrie for a restaurant. Very nice park and scenic overlooking the bay. Asked a local about a restaurant and they heard good things about the Potted Pig. Just as the title says, most of the menu items are pig related, they do serve pizzas. Room was clean.... More

The hotel had very friendly staff. I wasn't aware that there was no elevator. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and found it difficult to climb the 2 flights with a heavy suitcase.

When looking for hotels for a long weekend ball tournament in Bracebridge, we found that most hotels were booked up too full to accommodate 10 rooms for a baseball team or that they had jacked the prices so high as to make it difficult for our team. Well, not this hotel. They went out of their way to lower their... More
