We had a microwave and minifrig. No pool at this location. Many in group had differently decorated rooms, some without microwave. Although it was full, the staff managed to... More

We stayed at the Comfort Inn on Essa Rd in Barrie, Ontario for 1 night on Nov 7, 2014. There were 6 adults in our group. We stayed in room #201 which has 2 queen beds in a bedroom and a sofa bed in the living room. The beds were comfortable and appeared to be clean. I cannot say the... More

First of all I do want to apologize for your stay at our property, hearing how disappointed you were with one of our suites is very disheartening. I can assure you that all lines on all beds and pullout sofas are most defiantly changed after each and every guest. I have looked into the stains on the sofa bed and... More

Love this place. Clean and comfortable. Checkin process was fast and friendly. We're travelling with a 15 month old German Shepherd. We keep him brushed, bring a big blanket for the floor, put a sheet on top of the bed (he doesn't sleep on the bed but sometimes he jumps up)...Nevertheless some places freak out when we tell them we...

Location of this hotel right off the 400 was perfect for our needs. Nice clean room with a fridge and coffee maker. The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful in suggesting a place for dinner. Will definitely stay again.

We got a very good rate for our group when we stayed for a soccer tournament in July. Beds were comfortable. The room was very basic with a small fridge that we had requested. Carpets need cleaning. Very basic breakfast, no pool, difficult to entertain a group of kids.
