We stayed at this Hotel for two nights. We were very pleasantly surprised to find great staff at check in, a wonderful room, very clean, great beds and linens, quiet and a great breakfast. In fact we kept wishing we were back there as we proceeded on our trip at other hotels in different cities which were not up to... More

Do not book this hotel as part of a hockey team! There is a zero tolerance rule in effect! All violators will be harrased to return their rooms in which they are registered, there is no visiting with your team mates or your team mates parents! Why the management of this hotel would accept a hockey team booking and then... More

This is not a bad hotel, it's just a mediocre, middle-of-the-road place that lacks any special touches to make you want to come back. Check-in and check-out spped of service was not great. My first stay was in a room with a clogged shower head and barely functional climate control. My second stay was in a slightly better room, although... More

The towels were stained, threadbare and fraying at the edges... all of them! I have cleaning rags in better condition.. Thought maybe this was a fluke...but same thing again next day. Pick up a couple of towels at Walmart on your way in!

We stayed here in late June 2007. We used this hotel as an overnight stop before we went skydiving the next day. The hotel was very clean. Reception desk was friendly, and check in & out was very quick. The pool is very small as already stated. The hot tub was great. The rooms have a microwave and fridge -... More

We had a room with 2 queen size beds, workdesk and chair. The room was very clean and standard size, however the bathroom which was well equiped and clean was on the smaller side. Having a microwave and fridge was a plus. The pool is very small - seemed smaller than the average backyard pool. And the breakfast room, was... More

I usually don't write a review, but I want to put in my two cents about the Holiday Inn Express in Barrie. My husband and I stayed there for 6 nights in July 2006. We got a king suite so that we would have room to do some business - we were on a house-hunting trip but the room was... More

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Barrie last week, and were somewhat disappointed with our choice. Check-in was quick, and first impressions of our connecting rooms were favourable - decent sized rooms with two double beds, desk and chair. The bathrooms were tiny though - not much room to manoeuvre at all. On closer inspectiion, I found both... More

I have just returned from a business trip to Barrie. We visit Barrie at least once a year and try to check out different hotels and find the best one. We were not sure about the Holiday Inn Express, as it was an Express, without a restaurant / bar on site, etc. However, we were pleasantly surprised and I would... More

From check-in to check-out everything was great. The pool is a bit small but very nice, the rooms are very new, the staff extremly warm and helpful. I prefer to drive out of Toronto and enjoy a quiet stay here than all the hustle and bustle of Toronto.
