“Good enough!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 11, 2012

I attended for a conference. Easy access from the Highway. Check-in went smoothly enough. I wanted to pay for my room is advance with my debit card, but this seemed to be an issue. Said I would pay on check-out but they applied to my credit card anyway.
Room was very clean, nice bed, but pillows could do with an upgrade. Food was excellent.
Would happily return.

Stayed here overnight on a long distance drive. Rooms were very clean and the staff were very helpful. Tim Horton's and Wendy's next door was handy. This is an older property but well maintained. There is both an indoor and outdoor pool. The breakfast buffet was one of the best I've had at a Holiday Inn. Easy on/off highway is a plus.

Stayed here for my cousins wedding. Rooms were clean. Staff were friendly. A typical holiday inn. Was nice that there was a timmy's next door and it was close to restaurants. will choose this location for any future lodging needs.

Good - location, modern rooms, nice pool, easy to access, comfy beds, friendly staff

Bad - small bathroom, noisy

Nicely updated hotel. Thin walls though, even the maids talking in the hallway sounded loud.

Room Tip: Choose a quiet corner room away from entrances/exits.

We stayed here for 4 days in July 2012. The outdoor pool was great. The room was kind of run down in all honesty and seemed old, but the patio door leading out to the pool area was nice. Our third night there our van was broken into and our GPS was stolen. That made me a little nervous and mad that it had happened, Ididn't like that patio door after that happened. Told the front desk people but there was nothing they could do as there was no cameras in the back parking lot. There were some sketchy looking people staying where our van was parked. Oh yeah and apparently kids don't eat free because we had to pay for our two kids. Don't think we'll be back again.
PS - Pets are allowed to stay at this hotel. I personally don't like pet friendly hotels. We also had a dog beside our room that really liked to bark!

We recently hosted a conference for 200+ delegates at this hotel and conference centre. The venue and hotel were great and the staff went above and beyond to satisfy our every request - and there were plenty of them! The food was great and plentiful, the service was prompt, professional, polite and friendly. The rooms were clean and setup as per our requests for the different activities being held.

The hotel suites were clean and spacious with very friendly and efficient house keeping.

Special thanks to Melanie, Cheryl, Katherine, Chinto, David, Mike, Wes and the rest of the staff that made our event so successful!

We would not hesitate to recommend the Barrie Holiday Inn and would definitely use this hotel and conference centre again for any of our future events or meetings.

Had another enjoyable weekend in Barrie Ontario. I always choose the Holiday Inn and Conference Centre for their excellent customer service. Check in prompt and courteous. Rooms clean and full with all amenities required by the family. Kids had a nice swim each day in the renovated pool. Once again thanks Holiday Inn Barrie for a great weekend
