5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

Close to everything. Very clean. Excellent friendly staff. Great hot tub and pool. Close to college. It's a 5 star in my opinion . Definitely go again and again. We were in walking distance of Boston pizza and many favourite stores too. Beds comfortable. Excellent service.

I often have clients come to Barrie for a visit and we always put them up in this hotel. The staff or more than accommodating they take care of your needs to the best of their ability. I have often asked if they would like to meet for breakfast and they ask to meet after as they love the breakfast offered at the hotel. The rooms are great and always very clean. I even get great feedback about how comfortable the beds are. I would recommend this hotel to anyone no matter what purpose the are travelling for. The location is perfect as well so much to do in the area!

Good, spacious room, close to restaurants and entertainment venues like movie theatres, etc. Typical Holiday inn express good for business travelers on the go. Nothing fancy, but decent accommodation. Breakfast is typical usually included in the package.

No Marriott's in Barrie ON CA. So have to go with Holiday Inn. Tried the holiday Inn Barrie. Is really just OK with level of guest service, rooms for a full service.Tried the Holiday Inn express, hoping this would be new/nicer; to my disappointment, this was even worse. The only nicer option in this area is The Hampton Inn, if you're planning to visit Barrie.

Enjoyed our stay, good value, hot tub chemicals were off ~ changed the girls bathing suits from pink to purple! A little wear and tear on the rooms but very clean and one of the best hotel buffet breakfasts I've been to. Convenient location, walking distance to movies, shopping and lots of restaurants. Short drive to #400 and Barrie Molson Centre.

Room Tip: Our room showed signs of wear and tear, but was very clean. We were on the second floor, so parking...
