We were attending a concert at the Barrie Molson Centre and this Holiday Inn Express was really close by. Located off Hwy. 400 (Mapleview exit), this hotel is also conveniently located to many places to eat and shop. We had a very friendly check-in and were given bottled water and granola bars at check-in (this may have been because we... More

We found this Holiday Inn to be in the right location for what we wanted. We attended a show at Casino Rama, and the distance was about 20 minutes away. Also the price was reasonable and included an express breakfast which was nice. Also the front desk gave us a voucher for the OLGA in Barrie. When we used it... More

We booked this hotel last minute because we had a change in plans. Great location. Front desk staff were helpful with directions. Generally speaking, though, if a hotel room is clean, the bed is reasonably comfy, and the tv works, I'm happy. Folks that complain about stained carpets and noise in the hallways are unrealistic.....hello, it's a hotel!!!!! Anyway, we... More

I was in Barrie to visit family and decided to stay at this Holiday Inn and was pretty happy. I thought the "Express" was a different type of Holiday Inn, but it turned out to be really fresh and clean and very quiet. So quiet I did not hear anything even though there was some wedding party of some type... More
