This hotel is busy. It is cheap. But it may not be what you expect of a hotel. The third floor is very smokey. I cannot vouch for the other floors. The staff pleasant. I had a no smoking room on the 3rd floor. I moved to another hotel within an hour of arrival and after the staff had attempted... More

We had our annual curling bonspiel weekend on 22-23 Jan 16 and as always we were greeted by the friendly staff and their supervisor Holly. Our rooms were great, the location of the Hotel was perfect and just minutes from the downtown areas. We have been coming to the Comfort Inn for years for our bonspiel and will be returning... More

First there was a musky scent of cigarettes when it said no smoking. The so called continental breakfast only has hard boiled eggs bananas yogurt bread and orange juice in the small lobby. There is no elevator so I had to carry my heavy bags up so meany steps. And my room was freezing cold because the heating didn't work... More

Came to Barrie for a family christmas party and we all like to stay in the same hotel so we get to spend the whole weekend together. We chose Comfort Inn because we had great experiences at the other locations and wanted to give it a chance... Walking into the front desk was very different from any other location. The... More

Our hotel of choice when in the area. Renovations started after we reserved a specific room, but Holly called and made sure that the next best option was available for us. Smaller breakfast area that some Choice hotels, but the rooms, the staff and the convenient location make up for everything.

The hotel itself is fine, pretty clean and cheap, but the clientele leaves less to be desired. We had to stay here as all other local hotels were booked for the weekend, and to be honest, if I had known this was going to be my experience I'd have slept in my car. Each night at around 1am the halls... More

Girls shopping weekend so we booked 3 rooms for 10 adults, based on the good price advertised on a booking site. Unfortunately we lost track of the booking information and were charged a much higher rate and the 3 rooms were all on separate floors!!! One of the rooms had bunk beds which the front desk clerk told us we... More

So I said never mind, went back to bed and again it happened......called the desk and they were good enough to give us a new room...........that part of... More
