Staff was friendly. Room was wonderful. Clean and quiet. Breakfast was delicious. Would recommend this hotel for sure. We stayed here on New Years Eve and it was still relatively quiet. Lots to do and see in Barrie as well.

Visiting family for the Christmas holidays. I've stayed at the best western royal oak inn a few times and always feel welcomed, apart of their family. Restaurants and shopping are conveniently located. Great stay.

Easy on/off access to major highway and downtown Barrie waterfront. Friendly staff, clean facilities and relatively good value. Once the renovations are complete, I would rate the motel a 10 overall. Lots of parking, good size bathroom, lots of choices at breakfast.

This hotel is set in downtown Barrie, close to all amenities and has the most comfortable beds in all of Barrie. The rooms are clean and well appointed, the staff are friendly and accommodating, there is a pool and hot tub available as well as free WiFi. We had a very enjoyable stay at a very reasonable price.

We needed an inexpensive room for the night - since the BW Royal Oak advertised 'renovated rooms' we chose to stay here. The bathroom was updated, but there were unfinished dry wall holes - had been polyfilled but not painted. The room was spacious enough and the 'headboards' looked new but the wall paper was old, scuffed, ripping, and marked...

Business trip, late check in, easy process. Room décor was updated/new. Bed was comfy. Met all expectations. Main floor room with patio door was great to transfer luggage to and from the car. Overall the hotel was fine. Did not use the pool. Breakfast was hot, pretty much same as one might expect. Fresh hot coffee and cold juice.
