“Huge Room! Inconsiderate guests!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

Stayed here one night en route to Sudbury from Kingston. We called from the highway (not the driver!) on our way here and literally "got the last room" left. That made me nervous as to what that room might be like, but I was VERY pleasantly surprised when we arrived! The check in was efficient and painless. The front desk clerk was very nice and informed us that the hotel was full and that if we had any noise issues, to not hesitate to call her and she would deal with them. Got to the room and LOVED it!!!! HUGE ROOM!!! Two queens and a sofa bed, separate kitchen area with big counter top, mini fridge, sink, and microwave. Bathroom was sparkling clean and I loved that the sink area is separated for maximum efficiency when myself and my two teenage daughters are trying to get ready in the morning. I did not call the front desk about the noise, and there was lots, up until I fell asleep (with some help from a sleep aid) at 11:30pm. I stepped out into the hall a couple of times and glared at the runners and once, a tipsy dad, but I couldn't bring myself to bother that nice girl at the desk. I'm sure she was dealing with noise complaints from every corner of the hotel, all night long. I cannot fault this hotel, but I do have a message for parents:

PARENTS - HAVE CONTROL OVER YOUR CHILDREN!!! A HOTEL IS NOT A GYMNASIUM. THE LONG HALLS ARE NOT MEANT FOR RUNNING UP AND DOWN WHILE SCREAMING AND HOLLERING LIKE A LUNATIC!!! THERE ARE OLD PEOPLE, SICK PEOPLE, TIRED PEOPLE, PEOPLE WITH HEADACHES AND PEOPLE WHO HAVE TO GET AN EARLY START IN THE MORNING, STAYING IN THE HOTEL WITH YOU AND YOUR ROWDY FRIENDS!!! YOUR HEAVY DOOR DOES NOT NEED TO BE OPENED AND SLAMMED 30 TIMES AN HOUR!

Sadly, not all of the noise was coming from children, but a good deal of it from the "adults" in the group too. I suspect we were in the company of some tournament attendees, and I've had the experience before. I swear some people put their kids in rep sports just so they can travel around and party with the other parents while their kids rip around unsupervised. Remember parents, some day, you will be in a hotel without your kids and will want the same courtesies that I and my fellow travellers without young kids do - namely respect, peace and quiet. Grow up!

This hotel is excellent and I get why hotels take tournament groups in. You can't fault the hotel because people act like a-holes!

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your stay and your kind words about both our hotel and the staff!
They have a lot of pride in the jobs they do and it is so rewarding to see it shine through to the guests.
I am sorry that you had noise issues during your stay. It is unfortunate when guests don't take others into consideration or respect that not every guest is here for the same reasons.
We appreciate your understanding and do hope we get to welcome you back on your next trip to Barrie

Most of the hospital staff were extremely helpful I went out of their way to facilitate special requests. I would gladly recommend this place to anyone who needs a facility of this level. It is not a luxury hotel but for a short stay this is excellent. I certainly wish that there was a restaurant within the hotel facilities but this is probably not what the brand is about

For the most part, this is a typical Hampton Inn. The rooms are nice, service is good, and everything looks great. Two negatives surfaced here unfortunately though: while the WiFi worked, it was terribly slow (Hampton does offer free, and priced tiered internet service). Also, the breakfast was subpar for Hampton. The potatoes and eggs were very dry; the eggs were overcooked, or they had been sitting around for far too long. When I looked around for some Tabasco sauce, no one was in the kitchen area to help. 7/10

The best hotel I've stayed at in Barrie. New, clean, friendly staff, large rooms, located right next to the 400. The only minor complaint is the hot breakfast was a little lacking (only two hot items that changed each day) and the self-serve area was a little cramped.

I stayed for two nights in April 2014. Staff were very good, location was convenient (I was working at Liberty North). Hotel was quiet. No restaurants in walking distance but we had a car so we drove downtown for dinner. Nice amenities, my room was HUGE. Breakfast was very good.

Staff is Excellent ! Location is very convenient, both for business & pleasure. This was a 'combined' trip which included business & pleasure. Our family has stayed here in the past & were very pleased.
