Monte Carlo Inn Barrie Suites
Ranked #6 of 19 Hotels in Barrie
Reviewed April 21, 2014

We enjoyed our stay here. The room was not as spacious as some other hotels but was fine for what we needed. The bed was comfortable and we each had 2 pillows. There was an in-room safe, a microwave, mini fridge, flat screen tv (cable and rental movies), work desk and 2 small chairs (that would not have been comfortable to sit in for long periods). The bathroom had a deep tub. My only complaint about the room was that the bathroom fan is on the same switch as the light and the fan is quite noisy. suggest you bring a night light for night bathroom excursions. Also, all the light bulbs are compact fluorescent and quite bright. The room and the hotel were very neat and clean. The décor was current, bright, warm and welcoming. There is a small swimming pool which we did not use due to the presence of screaming children. There is an in-house restaurant which we didn't use except for breakfast. Regarding the complimentary breakfast: you need to pick up "free breakfast" cards from the front desk. The restaurant is privately owned as does not allow any outside food or drink so leave your "Timmie's" coffee behind. The complimentary breakfast is VERY basic and the yogurt is terrible! You can purchase a regular breakfast for $3.95. The server was very courteous. We will stay there again.

Room Tip: The hotel is next to Hwy. 400 so ask for a room at the back if traffic sounds bother you.

Server in the breakfast area was disrespectful and discourteous! I will never book into this establishment again as I feel my experience can be summed up as "once bitten, twice shy" I will also not recommend to any of my family, friends or colleagues who happen to pass through the Barrie area.

We stayed for just one night in order to have a fun girls night out.
There was free lemonaid by the elevator which was nice and tasty.

We needed a wine opener at one point and were unable to borrow one from the hotel. Very shocking to stay in a hotel that claims to not have a wine opener for their guests to use.

I looked in on the pool but did not use it. There was plenty of laughter from it the morning of checkout, so someone was enjoying it.

Did not partake in the breakfast because I wasn't hungry, so I can't comment on it.

Still so weird about the wine opener! I've stayed in many hotels and have never been told that "we don't have use for them" so they have zero on site for guest convenience.

The closet had a lot of space and the safe is always a nice touch.

I have nothing else negative to say, but I also can't think of anything really good to comment on. It was all pretty average-- nothing overly special or nice to convince people that it's a great place, and nothing really bad, either. It was just ok and average.

We had the Napoleon suite, which was a very spacious room. The bed was comfortable and the best part of the room was the large Jacuzzi with faux marble posts, located right in the centre of the room. The electric fireplace was a nice touch as well. The staff could use a smile and be more friendly.

My son and I just stayed there last night feb 17 2014. We stayed in room 204. We booked through a third party site and got a king room with their continental breakfast for 85 taxes incl. Check in was easy, they did require a 100 refundable deposit, but the clerk seemee ro rush us through without any general care. It was more mechanical. The room was an ok size, smaller than the usual holiday inn or travelodge but had fridge, microwave coffee maker. The pillows and bedding were fine but the mattress was hard on the oitside and softer once you got it. Room was warm even with the fan on all night at 65. Bathroom was clean but the tub must have been 24inches high to step into without a grab bar. I have never scene one so big. The complementary shampoo and lotion seem to come in refillable containers which is economical but untrustworthy. Their free breakfast was typical of some fruit, beverages, breads, cereals and some store bought pastries. They were stale. The pool is salt water and was small but did the trick for us since it was empty when we went in. Check out was easy and was warmer than check in.
Overall for the value it was good but comparable to the days inn or quality inn or a travelodge. 2.5 stars

I have never been so embarrased and put out as I was staying at this hotel. The weekend staff are anything but courteous, in fact, one individual was down-right confrontational and rude. The rooms weren't bad and even though the pool was very small, I still would not have given this such a poor rating had the staff not been so horrible. Will never return to this hotel or any of it's chain and will recommend to all associates to avoid.
