Barker's Island Inn is my home away from home when I am traveling to the Twin Ports. The staff is friendly and kind, the rooms are clean and comfortable. I always enjoy myself whether it is a dip in the pool, or a glass of wine in the Waterfront Grille. I would recommend this property to anyone!

We stayed here over night on August 17th to see the Giant Rubber Duck and the Tall Ship Festivle the next day. The staff at the front desk were great. The room was clean with brand new beds.

Was here for a family wedding and we never had to leave the property. I love that the pool is enclosed (it cuts down on room noise and hallway humidity). The rooms are spacious and the lobby/bar/restroom area are easy to maneuver. The food at the wedding was great and the gazebo was perfect.

We stayed for just one night but would definitely stay again. The hotel is very clean and well cared for. The room was modern and the bed comfortable. We didn't hear any other guests. We were able to leave the window open and slept to the sound of gentle waves - very relaxing. Added bonus was the free breakfast with... More

Not a happy camper at this place. Priced at 190 (with tax) seemed a bit high for a hotel with dirty carpets, non HDTV, shower with crack in wall, threat bare towels, dirty Duvet, thin walls, etc..... I also hoped to get a late night (10:10pm) snack but the kitchen closed at 10pm. Next time I'll stay at Holiday Inn... More
