“Nice room”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 3 weeks ago

Only a single night stay but a very comfortable room at a reasonable price - exactly what we have come to expect from this chain. Room was spacious and clean, bed was comfortable. Breakfast is basic but good - all we needed.

Stayed November 2014, traveled as a couple

I really liked, with the exception of the bathroom, our room. Two queen beds, very comfortable and a decent amount of space in the room. I was pleased with how quiet the room was.The bathroom sadly was one of those bathrooms where the door barely opens as it clears the toilet by barely a millimeter - so it was very tight for space.

The front desk staff were very pleasant to deal with and the breakfast was good.

As someone with an issue with scented products, and who can get migraines from strong chemical scents, I was nearly struck down by how much of a deodorizer/carpet cleaner/strong cleaning product smell was in the hallways. I definitely found it headache inducing and it made me not want transverse the common areas of the hotel.

Room Tip: The two queen bed room is quite comfortable.

Peter at the front desk was great as well as the two ladies that were there when I checked it, breakfast was a nice touch, only problem was the bathrooms were tiny and the shower head was clogged and toilet kept clogging as well. RM 314.

We were given wrong room initially, but upon request it was switched to the one we made reservation for. Not much I can say, nothing significant to remember from this stay. Maybe slightly overpriced for the standard offered if you compare with similar hotels in walk in distance. I did not like breakfasts there.

Room Tip: Internet somewhat slow. Enjoyed suite type of room located on higher floor.

This Holiday Inn Express was as pleasant as any chain lodging we have stayed. It was very clean and the staff was helpful and courteous throughout our stay. If you are in Barrie, I highly recommend staying here.

We stayed here for the weekend and were very impressed by the cleanliness and quality of service. We usually stay at the other holiday inn that is in Barrie but opted for this one as the other had no rooms available that weekend. We loved the fact that it was not noisy at all and were able to get a decent sleep! I would come back to this property and recommended it to others looking for a quiet nights sleep
