Whenever I am staying in Barrie for the night I will go to the Howard Johnson! It's very close to the clubs and bars downtown and it's a very laid back but safe place to stay! The staff were super friendly and accommodating and the room was clean. Can't wait to go back :)

I had a really great stay at this hotel even though it was for one night. My name is Ashley and Bj the manager was very helpful and really good to us. We will for sure be coming back soon! We were right downtown the room was great and we were so close to everything that it was amazing.

This motel is close to down town but I would recommend staying in a different hotel. My friends and I were watched constantly and it could have been cleaner. I understand having guests per room regulations, but we had 2 friends drinking in our room and were harassed the entire time..... Definitely wouldn't have those problems in a hotel.

I have stayed here 6 or 7 times over the last month. As the season got busier and rooms were getting booked well in advance, the staff looked into any and all possibilities of accommodating me after I had a sudden change of plans on short notice. The continental breakfast offered more options than I usually have at home. Waffles... More

Awesome! Big room lots of fun! Close to everything downtown. Very clean and management was so nice! Would definitely recommend! Make sure you read the details of occupancy maximums before booking room - double room does not mean 2 beds! Manager was great with fixing my mistake! Awesome! Fantastic!

Budget accommodation, and worth that, just. Well located near downtown though depressingly ugly, this HoJo offers a clean and spacious room at a decent price. (Ask for a second-storey room, I suggest.) Staff were pleasant enough in what is probably not a terrific job. The bed was comfortable enough, and the shower worked well.
