We stayed here for the weekend and were very impressed by the cleanliness and quality of service. We usually stay at the other holiday inn that is in Barrie but opted for this one as the other had no rooms available that weekend. We loved the fact that it was not noisy at all and were able to get a... More

This Hotel is so close to the 400 highway in Barrie, it makes for a fast getaway. Located on a busy big box road it might seem that this property would be noisy. Not so! We arrived back to the hotel after a wedding so it was nearly 1 am. There was some sort of bar across the road and... More

Stayed at this hotel on business for 10 days in total. Very good Housekeeping (Very clean and thorough), good free breakfast in the morning, fresh fruit and coffee available all day. Nice but small pool and nice hot tube. Made my stay a pleasant one. Highly recommended for hotels in the Barrie/Borden/Angus area!

Location is close to the 400 with a lot of restaurants and a mall within walking distance. Rooms could use a bit of updating but were clean enough and comfortable. It was a bit noisy but nothing disturbing. The pool is small, so no laps, but there is a little hot tub which is nice. Breakfast is typical for a... More

We stayed here last week on a Friday night. On the surface the hotel was fine and easy to find off the 400 highway. Breakfast was typical if a HIE.
