We stayed in Barrie this past weekend, and this hotel was great. The price was reasonable and the staff were very friendly. The room was quite nice, and very comfortable. I totally recommend to everyone!

We stayed at this hotel last week and we found it to be above average for Comfort Inns. Because it is built into the side of a hill, there are direct entrances onto all levels from the parking lot. The room was clean and well prepared and the beds were comfortable. The air-con worked well. The Sunshine breakfast provided was very good. All the staff were pleasant and efficient.
We will be returning in the future

Husband and I stayed over night and had no issues except for the tub not draining. The hot/cold complimentary breakfast was delicious with your choice of cereal, pastries, bagels, toast... also includes eggs, sausages and do it yourself waffles. Beds were great. not a fan of their pillows but that's just a preference. Location is easy to find with a Tim Horton's right around the corner. All in all, we had a great stay!

Room Tip: Bring your own pillows if you're picky.

This is a bad and good review.... I just staye stayed at the Comfort Inn on Jan 20-22. I was looking forward to a romantic weekend with my new Husband.. I booked a King Bedroom suite with jacuzzi tub... #1. They failed to tell me that my room was ona smoking floor. My husband does not smoke.. #2. Got to the floor and the it just reaked of cigarette smoke and the smell of POT just was horrific. I sooo wanted to gag. and the smell gave me and instant headache.. #3 I complained to the hotel staff about the smell of pot. They apologized to me. Brought up a fan to the floor hoping it would get rid of the smell.... #4 My husband finally arrived about half hour after me.. He was not happy at all with the smell or the fact that we where on a smokers floor.
But the hotel told me that was the only floor that had that kind of suite.
Not really what you want after driving 6 hours to get there.
The room was nice though I must say. I was very impressed with it. and so was my husband.
The morning breakfast was very good too. Had a choice of hot and cold to eat and drink.
I did get massive heartburn on the sat night. I asked the staff if they had some rolaids or tums. Unfortunantly they did not carry or sell them. Just a suggestion... Maybe they should.
Overall.. I would have to say. The room was nice.. The Floor that its on is NOT.. Would I stay there again?? Probably not. Especially for a $150 per night to breath in smoke and pot fumes.

I wanted to thank you for your response. We strive to make our guests comfort a number one priorty. Im sorry that your stay here was anything less than satisfying. Unfortunaly we do still have a floor that is half smoking. We try and disinfect that floor as much as possible but unfortunately the smell lingers. I do hope you will give us another try, and hopefully we will have a suite open on another floor that will accomadate you.

First impression is " wow easy to find" second impression " oh shoot what a dump ". One night was enough for me. If you want the comforts of home don't book here. Its old and out-dated.
