The stay started off ok as my expectations weren't very high. I stayed 6 nights. The weekend was a nightmare. Obviously it is party central for some. Very noisy on Saturday night, called front desk who sent up security but it didn't stay quiet for long. The hallways and elevator were filthy with French fries, pizza etc left all day...

No frills - just what you need. We stayed one night. The rooms were clean, the bathroom was fine, towels nice and white. The walls are concrete so you can't hear your neighbours, and any noise from the hallway during the night is blocked by the fact that you can close your bedroom door as well as the suite door....

Stayed there this week as part of Canada Games 55+ On the surface, appeared ok. Two rooms, fridge, shower. Ok, for two nights. But the room(s) were filthy. Counters were sticky, dark crud around the faucets in the washroom. Cupboards dirty, drawers dirty. This is not just my room, we went to other people's rooms and dirty as well. My...

Filthy building. Hallways were disgusting. Rooms not clean. Floors sticky. Hair everywhere. Sinks not cleaned, rusty old taps. Rate was inflated, not what was posted in popular websites. People were sleeping in lobby. Could not stay there; walked out and cleaned the soles of my shoes since they were so sticky. Shameful that this is considered a place to stay....

My parents stayed here for one night so I am reviewing on their (computer-illiterate) behalf. The value is unbeatable; it included free parking, a continental breakfast, 24hr coffee service, and a suite with two private bedrooms, spacious bathroom and kitchenette. Close to the Barrie downtown, which means easy access to the waterfront, shopping and all the best restaurants.

Was good for a short stay, some strange smells in the rooms but overall for the price it was ok for the night and was close to everything. Staff were friendly! Confusing to get to as it is actually on the Georgian Campus.

It is great. The rooms are clean, free parking, safe area and the staff is very courteous and helpful. There was free breakfast which I did not know which I hoped would be told to us at the time of check-in. So, for future travellers, there's free breakfast! Its a college residence which is also open for travellers over the...

We had planned on staying at a hotel, but were very happy when we found out about the Residence & Conference Centre in Barrie. We got all the same amenities as a hotel, at a fraction of the cost. Very much appreciated the complimentary breakfast and 24/7 coffee.

My three day stay was very affordable, comfortable & convenient to our venue with the BEST room rates that included breakfast, coffee, tea & hot water available 24/7 in modern, clean facility. Seasonal accommodations are half the price of most other hotels in the area during students' summer hiatus. Double dorm rooms also include a kitchenette with cupboards, fridge, microwave...

This is a modern facility which uses empty student residences to help offset college maintenance costs during the summer hiatus. Students get experience in the hospitality industry in every area accommodting real guests at reasonable costs. Win/Win situation for everyone.
