Georgian College In Barrie, Ontario We had a Group Rate, just $70 for the night for Two Bedrooms, Kitchenette, Bathroom, Parking, and Continental Breakfast. So the price could not be beat! The Rooms were College Dorm Rooms, so the condition was that of a lower end Hotel, but fairly clean, and served their purpose. However, there is no wifi in... More

Air conditioning does not work well. Breakfast was included with my stay. Coffee was not available for 2 of my breakfasts. Tea was not available either. Stale bagels and muffins as well as cereal and fruit were available. This is a very basic student residence.

Excellent place to stay - clean and comfortable. Great value. The beds were very comfortable and the staff were very polite and helpful. We were on a cycling weekend - the location is very close to the countryside, the area has great cycling. Highly recommend staying here.

We were well received by desk staff. They were well informed.The rooms were clean and tidy. Towels were new and plentiful. The beds were a little hard but it is a student residence. Breakfast was better on day two and three. Fruit was added. Parking was easy access. It is not too far from town and off major highway.

Experience was ok. Rooms were decent, walls of rooms are a wreck- definitely needs a paint job as there are holes an cracks all throughout walls, but it is a dorm room. Amenities were good. The only thing was that we begged to get in early as we drove from Winnipeg 27 hours and we got there a bit early.... More

Really great rooms. In summer or off season need to be more flexible and treat guests as adults not students. Leave common rooms open longer and allow room doors to be open especially when there are many many rooms booked.

Thank you for your feedback, we greatly appreciate hearing from our guests. We lock our lounges in the evening to ensure that guests are not having alcoholic beverages in these spaces, we have to do this as the use of alcohol in common areas (halls, stairways, lobby, lounges, outdoor areas, etc.) is prohibited due to Provincial and Municipal by-laws.

I found this a very good option over the summer for weekly stays in Barrie. The suites are basic but functional with a full size fridge, microwave/convection oven, two bedrooms with full size bed, shower (only) and cabled internet connection. The breakfast was decent with fair selection and check-in and out was quick and efficient. Only available during the summer... More
