If there was anywhere else to stay in Barrie that nite, I would have gladly paid extra. This property is crap and so were the Owners / Managers. I am not a racist, but these Individuals could hardly speak English. They were more concerned with me signing an extra paper stating that there was to be no noise after 10:00... More

Your Review The room had an odor. There was hardly any warm water, never mind hot. We were kept awake until 4a.m. Because of other guest problems. When I reported the issues the next day, I received an apology and excuses but no offer of a discount or future discount. Overall, not a pleasant stay.
