“Mostly good, couple of issues but no biggie.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

My wife & I stayed here for 2 weekend nights, Saturday & Sunday, in early July. We were attending a family event south of Barrie so the Super 8's location worked well for us.
Plenty of parking, check in was efficient, staff was always courteous & friendly, our room was clean, the bed was comfortable and the wi-fi worked fine. That is, the wi-fi worked fine when signing on with Internet Explorer, could connect but could not sign on via Mozella/Firefox.

The hotel is pet friendly and on checking in we noticed that several guests were taking advantage of that. We asked if we could have a room that was not used by pets and were assigned a corner room on the top (4th) floor.

We only had one common wall but noisy neighbours next door. I think they were part of a big group that was there to party. At about 11:30 PM we called the front desk for the second time to complain about the noise next door. No idea what action the staff threatened but it worked. The noise stopped a few minutes later and we had no further problem.

There is only one small elevator for guest use and it is very slow. We found it quicker to use the stairs when descending but had to wait a while when going up to the room.

The breakfast was good and we appreciated the free coffee that seemed to be available 24/7.

We did not use the pool so we have no opinion about that.

This is not a five star hotel and does not pretend to be. It is a solid 3, maybe 3 1/2 and we would not hesitate to stay again.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2014

Pleasantly surprised with our stay. Rooms were spacious and spotless, lots of clean towels and nice bed linens, very freindly and helpful staff. Great location off the highway and near restaurants and shops. Liked the room ammenities (king size bed, fridge, coffee maker) and the room size was generous. We stayed with our 2 small dogs and it was perfect for pets with a large grassy area around the hotel for a short walk at night that was well lit. Hot breakfast in the am was good with lots of choices. would stay here again!

Room Tip: Main floor is pet freindly
