I have not stayed at the Holiday Inn for years. Based on the location of the hotel and the reviews of my fellow Tripadvisors, who gave good ratings, we decided to give it a try. Upon check-in we were told that the main building is considered the "Executive Tower" and we would have to upgrade ($$) to stay there. We immediately upgraded our room to avoid being placed in a room on the perimeter of the hotel in the two level buildings. The room was clean and a good size. We were on the fifth floor and the room was quiet. We are not sure why it is considered the "Executive Tower", but fine. Overall it was fine for the area. I would recommend the hotel, given its location to the highway and the quiet surroundings.

We stayed here as a short getaway and I have to stay will definitely stay here again. Npot just because it is a Holiday Inn and we enjoy the services and amenities. Also because of the attention to detail and personalized touch from all of the outstanding staff members. The restaurant was fantastic and catered to our needs very well. The room was SOO clean, even for a hotel I felt very comfortable.

We will definitely be back and I am confident they will be ready for us. Thanks!

Met with family in Barrie this weekend for reunion. We now know why we pick this hotel, staff great. Lori at Front desk, thanks again for accommodating us, your exuberant personality is a welcoming factor to us. Rooms were great. Downfall, loud music Saturday evening from wedding
Had breakfast with our usual servers, what a joy to see Jenny and Adrienne again. My kids rave when we go too restaurant and these ladies are there.

I have passed this hotel many times and had a friend a few years ago recommend not to stay at this hotel, but we always go to Mandarin while our stay in Barrie, I was pleasantly surprised at the hotel, the room was very clean and the staff was friendly. Nice size rooms coffee and tea in the rooms with a microwave and mini fridge. The pool was a nice size to. The only complaint i have was the beds, it was too soft for me, but everyone is different. Bathroom was nice and clean, shower had good pressure nothing i hate more than trying to have good pressure while taking a shower. Other than the bed, i cant say i was disappointed in our stay here.

Room Tip: there was a wedding and a few kids running in the halls, but other than that it was pretty quiet. I...

The food was excellent and the staff was friendly. They greeted us when we arrived for our semi private gathering. Don Buckle and staff were excellent, including Jenny who was outgoing and fun with our lively group, and even the chef who came out to see if we were enjoying our meal! Would definitely recommend the restaurant at the Holiday Inn Barrie!
