Decided to stay here when we couldn't find a hotel. Several hours after we checked out, we got a phone call from them saying they were charging our credit card $200 for "damages" to the room!! After returning to investigate, we found out from another guest that the so called damages had been there for weeks. The owner argued with... More

This place is a filthy dump! Legendary in Barrie for where crackheads, prostitutes frequent. The smell and conditions of this place unsafe for humans, and animals. Disgusting sheets, bedding, carpets, EVERYTHING. Do not touch. CLOSE THIS DUMP DOWN. You'll be doing this community a favour.

As a former Barrie local I find it my duty to warn off all people that have any kind of intelligence. This is a party hotel for people who have one of age friend to rent a room so the underage can all party there...we all used to. Now this motel (if you can really call it that) is synonymous...

This is a disgusting hotel. We were told we had the best room. There were holes in the sheets and walls. The door did not shut properly and had no dead bolt. No heat control in the room so we would have frozen. They expect a 100 dollar deposit in case of damages. The floors were so disgusting we could... More

I stayed at the White Tower during Kempemfest in August long weekend as my usual choice of downtown hotel The Howard Johnsons on Dunlop was full. I was lucky to get a room on this busy weekend because some people cancelled pre-booked stays probably because of rainy weather. Anyway while the exterior and the interior of hotel looked pretty beat... More

I stayed here with some friends as it was the only place in Barrie available on a Saturday night. We were going out for a night out and figured that for one night it would do. To our surprise we were mortified at the apperance of the motel. We walked in and there was blood all over the carpet. It... More

It wasn't to terrible, but considering the alcohol consumed. The place was disgusting. There was lipstick on the bed sheets, the air condition was dented in, the doors wouldn't lock properly, the room didn't look good in general. The numbers on the door were even falling off, we had one out of two. The towels were not the same color... More

Not the best place in barrie to stay for a night. Its right off the hwy exit and makes for a preferrable location but the rooms are not very good. It was not until I discovered another hotel just down the road, I stopped coming to White towers. Stay at your own experience and good luck
