This Best Western is nice and clean. (Perhaps too clean because some of the halls smelled like lysol.) We were only here for one night on the way home from a vacation, but turned out to be a very pleasant night.

The complimentary breakfast was sufficient, tasty and was exactly what a team of 9/10 year olds would want to eat in the morning. The pool was clean and was a hit with the boys. The location was right off the... More

The staff are very friendly. The rooms are clean and the bed is comfortable. The rooms have a fridge and are spacious. Free WiFi and parking. A 10 minute walk to downtown. Good bang for your buck in Barrie.

Stayed here on many occasions. Always nice and clean. The hotel was doing some renovations when I stayed here last but it did not interfere with any of the amenities. The beds are comfortable and having a fridge and microwave is a bonus. Pool is great for the family.

Staff were not friendly or interested in guest service. House keeping tried to enter my room before checkout time. Breakfast facilities are run down though food is decent - rest of facility outside of the rooms is also run down. Shower leaked all over the floor although it was a nice new shower.
