This is the worst place to stay in Barrie.
Check trip advisor for videos we are up loading this week. They will show dogs barking in hotel stairwell at 630am, 15 pre teens being watched by one adult who sits and does nothing as they are throwing each other over a hot tub wall into the pool, one kid tosses his shoes in the pool to clean them then precedes to do cannon balls on top of girl. Hotel has a policy listed as per how many people allowed in the area for safety and they have a camera in the pool area. ;
Since the hotel ignores their own policy and has a camera in the area seeing what is going on..if someone gets hurt, is the hotel liable???
The best one is the picture of one room with 20 plus kids in it having a party while chaperone's go out for dinner. These kids head back to the pool and hit the emergency button on purpose as filmed by other visiting kids not involved with these out of control hockey kids.
Yeah fun doesn't stop there, each breakfast is outrageous as parents fill there bags with bagels muffins and hot choc packages leaving the other hotel guest with scraps.
The best part is..when a patron complains of the noise, kids running up and down the halls and stairs the hotel says its a hockey town can't do much! But hey, if you yells down the hall for the kids to stop fooling around on the stairs before someone gets hurt the hotel and hockey people threaten to call the police on you!
Follow this close as we have compiled 8 videos AND over 40 pictures of this 3 day fiasco!
We will also post the letter from the manager ken who was not concerned enough to stop by and see how his hotel was being abused but was quick to point out that one guest made a kid cry as he yelled down the stairs for the kids to stop fooling around before someone got hurt
We have cancelled our corporate account with them and will continue to update trip advisor and the hotels web site until the manager sends us am apology and refunds the 6 nights that combined we stayed.
We are forwarding all of our information, videos, pictures and letter to the Holiday Inn corporate offices, the Oakville hockey teams,(as we are sure they will be interested in seeing how their children are being looked after), trip advisor and the local Barrie media.
