“An enjoyable weekend”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

My husband myself and our kitten-Julia were more than pleased with our stay the 23rd. and 24th .of Feb.The staff at the front desk were very friendly and helpfull-thanks to all but Lori was really especially nice to us.The room we had was very clean and housekeeping staff considerate towards us as to keeping Julia in our room.We also found the restaurant buffet both for dinner and breakfast great and again our thanks to Jenny for her warmth and service.We spent some time in the hot tub and pool and again enjoyed both.

I visit Barrie all the time for family and busines, and the holiday inn is a place where I know I will get a good night's rest and great meals. I would recommend this over any hotel in Barrie, having stayed in the major ones.

The stay was great! The rooms were clean and pleasant, and the heating system was easy to control (a rarity!). The absolute best part of this stay was the staff at the restaurant and lounge! Jenny and Adrienne were charming and accommodating, and lwe oved the fact that the chef mingled with us and showed us what the buffet had for us. These three staff members made us feel special, appreciated and welcome. I am sure they are the reason for many returning visitors.
I think the only downfall was the overall layout. staying in the 100 section meant long walks to anywhere in the hotel.
Oh, the 2 night minimum stay condition for our group reservation was a bit unfortunate also.

We spent one night here. I never expect much from chain hotels. Friendly, efficient check in by Elizabeth. We were given room 328. It turned out there was a girls' hockey team staying on that floor. I could hear music blaring. Kids were hanging out in the hallway, talking. We went down to the front desk and asked if we could move to a quieter room, even though we had already used the shower & bathtub in 328. Not only did Lori move us, she upgraded us to the 'Executive Tower' at no extra charge. Our room 1417 (actually on 4th floor) was completely quiet all night and we had a wonderful sleep. We had dinner and breakfast at Tattinger's. Great food, wonderful staff, including the chef from Jamaica and Jenny the waitress. Delicious prime rib buffet with lots of salads & vegetables, pasta & chicken. Lovely breakfast buffet consisting of pancakes, French toast, scrambled eggs, home fries, bacon, sausage, fresh fruit, cold cereal, (real) oatmeal, croissants, muffins, tea, coffee, juice. This hotel was a wonderful surprise and I would definitely stay here again.

Stayed overnight and checked in late so didn't get to the pool, but the room was clean and nicely decorated. The room had a thermostat which is nice so I could set it to the temperature
i sleep at home.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. A+

Pluses: pleasant & helpful staff, lovely modern restaurant & breakfast buffet in-house (Tattinger's), clean/comfortable rooms with fridge and other amenities, nice business centre. Minuses: the pool was disgustingly dirty (unswimmable) - stuff floating in the water, un-swept area surrounding pool, dirty towels piled up poolside, and the clean towel they provide for pool use is the size of a dishcloth; also, from our room, we could hear the shower from the room upstairs so loudly it was as if it were in our room (disruptive). To their credit, the staff were responsive to issues when reported.

Your feedback on the Holiday Inn Barrie hotel is appreciated. It is very dis-concerning as the hotel GM to hear that your wonderful review of our Guestrooms, Restaurant, Food and our wonderful customer service was somewhat tainted by the condition of our pool on that day. I can assure you that this is an exception and that the cleanliness of our pool and fitness area is among our highest concerns. I have discussed your comment with our Maintenance Manager and the Housekeeping Manager and will be reviewing what you experienced. Thank you so much for your review!
