Spent two nights in a ground floor, pet friendly room. Despite the smell of dog, the room was fantastic. I think removing carpets from these rooms would do great for the odours. Small room with two comfy beds. The outdoor pool is huge! Spent an entire day there with my daughter. Depending on where your room is located, it can... More

Our room was very clean and fresh. The bed and pillows super comfy. Ammenities were clean and appealing with good hours. Staff was friendly and helpful. Only challenge was IHG rewards system. Booked online and they didn't charge us accordingly.

I stay in Barrie often for work. I have stayed at this hotel often. Sometimes two nights and every other week. I have done this for approx. 8 months or better. With other hotels in other locations they great me and know my name at the check in. Not at this location. The reception is very poor in customer friendliness... More

This place has racist staff. I was staying at this hotel for a week for work. During my morning breakfast at the buffet (Spynn restaurant manged by Sra Casey Farley), a staff lady called Kari kept asking me to leave for no reason. She turned off the lights as I was eating stating that buffet was closing. She would not... More

Our family booked this hotel along with other families as we were attending an event in the area. Despite asking in advance of our stay as well as during, there was no place for us to gather together outside of our rooms. Hotel management and security went out of their way to try to interrupt our respectful socializing. Our group... More

Our family and friends booked a weekend together at this location and had the worst experience. It was not possible to book a party room to gather and ensure we do not disrupt other people. You must hire 2 servers and pay for a bar....at thousands of dollars. So we tried to meet outside the hotel so as not to... More

Booked this hotel for 5 days, situated off the exit from the main highway from Toronto. I was assigned at the farthest section of the hotel very close to the Mandarin restaurant. Very peculiar layout during check-in since I was advised to locate my room by walking outside with my luggage...feels like checking in to a cheap roadside motel. Next... More

Buffet breakfast was excellent - lots of fresh fruits and a good selection of food. Service was great too - very attentive and friendly. The voucher for breakfast was a bonus too!... More

We stayed one night at Holiday Inn Barrie, using IHG points. I selected it because of being able to use points and was thrilled to learn that it is near the Peterborough marina, as we were on a boat oriented trip. The hotel faces the water, with the waterfront walk passing directly along the front of the hotel. The marina... More
