“Good Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2014

The hotel lobby and facilities were very clean. Staff very pleasant and helpful. The upgrade to a suite was very much appreciated - roomy and comfortable for 4 people. Nice variety of breakfast selections. I would stay at this Hampton Inn & Suites again.

Very nice, clean hotel - what you would expect from this chain. Breakfast included - standard selection - well maintained. This hotel is located "off the beaten path" so you must drive for restaurants but there is a good selection approx 10 - 15 minutes away. The hotel is approx 20 minutes from the Barrie Speedway - closer to Sunset Speedway and approx 10 minutes from downtown Barrie where you will find lots of shops, restaurants, bars, a beautiful waterfront including beaches and a boat cruise.

Great rooms, super breakfast and excellent pool and gym facilities. Grocery store is across the road should you stay longer. Staff is very friendly. This is our 4th visit to the hotel. Wi-Fi is amazingly fast.

Room Tip: The Suites are huge and have a small fridge and Microwave so pay the few extra bucks for them if you...

staff were not helpful, hot tub broken, type of room is misleading, binder in room full of errors and services are not available. When person above uses toilet you can hear them, and if they flush its loud. Also doors are heavy and slam shut so you hear that all night from the hallway.

Used this hotel as a stopover on a driving holiday around Ontario. Excellent location just off the highway and only a 5 minute drive straight into downtown Barrie and its waterfront. Supermarket just across the road too for any needed supplies

Room was excellent with superb number of facilities including microwave etc

Breakfast was good although lack of seating is an issue however they had opened up another conference room for people to use but of course you are a bit away from the actual food etc then

Would definitely stay here again and recommend to other travellers. Great view from the hotel across the whole town due to its high up location.

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!

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
