We stayed here for a broom ball tournament in Feb. 2014 with children. Nice easy location, Tim Hortons, Wendy's and Pizza Hut are all next door which was very convenient. Lots of free parking and free wifi. Staff was friendly. Breakfast was included, with a good variety, everything looked good but nothing tasted that great.

Stayed here for a weekend for a broomball event. Rooms were clean, service was great, staff were friendly. As soon as the snow began, the exits were salted. We had the continental breakfast, the bagel I took had mold on it, muffins were dry. So next day we just had fruits and yogurt.

Always a pleasure to stay here. The breakfast was great and even the last morning when we had to be up and gone long before breakfast was served there was muffins, coffee, yogurt, juice etc for us....see you in February....The only disadvantage is the fact is that is no elevator although there are some rooms that you can go in the level but then you are a long way from the elevator....Not a big deal for us...

Room Tip: 228...great

Lets start with the good. The location is just off the 400 highway, there is a Tim Hortons next door and a couple other restaraunts within walking distance. Check in was quick and check out. We paid for the room with Choice Rewards points so thankfully it didn't cost us any actual money! The king suite was quite large and would have been really nice if someone went to the effort of either steam cleaning the carpet and furniture or replacing it. The arms of the chairs where quite dirty and worn. The french doors needed a good wiping down and the glass cleaned, as well as the bathroom door.

Hotel was right off the highway. Staff very helpful directing me to "Downtown" Barrie for a restaurant. Very nice park and scenic overlooking the bay. Asked a local about a restaurant and they heard good things about the Potted Pig. Just as the title says, most of the menu items are pig related, they do serve pizzas. Room was clean. Got a got sleep. No Lift for upstairs. Most if not all Comfort Inns the same. Cost for room was $85, total about 100. I had one small cleanliness problem in the bathtub. I would stay again thou.

Thank You for taking the time to write your review as we appreciate the feedback. I am glad you enjoyed your time in Barrie, and I agree that the park overlooking Kempenfelt Bay is very scenic and is picturesque, especially in the autumn. Our first and second floor rooms offer ground level access should you require a ground level room in your future visit. My greatest apologies about the bathtub.

The hotel had very friendly staff.
I wasn't aware that there was no elevator. I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and found it difficult to climb the 2 flights with a heavy suitcase.
I was visiting family in Barrie and found the location to be excellent, close enough to downtown and to the highway. It was also easy to find and the parking was good.
The breakfast was good and there was a good variety to choose from.

When looking for hotels for a long weekend ball tournament in Bracebridge, we found that most hotels were booked up too full to accommodate 10 rooms for a baseball team or that they had jacked the prices so high as to make it difficult for our team. Well, not this hotel. They went out of their way to lower their price to $89 per room plus tax and they gave us the use of the Georgian room common area and fridge for our team's socializing. The front desk staff was very patient with all of our random requests and when reminded that 50 people plus their other guests would all be wanting breakfast between 7 and 8 am they assured us the food would be plentiful and that it wouldn't run out. They were true to their word. They maintained a lovely warm buffet breakfast and provided trays if we wished to take it to our rooms (as the eating area was small). Even though this hotel doesn't have a pool (which would have been nice) it had all the comforts we required. In the area there is a great little restaurant called Sticky Fingers that some of our ball parents visited, the zehrs is just up the road and there is a baseball diamond for a practice just a couple blocks away.

Rooms are as expected, standard and clean. The suite room 115 was great for having a quick team meeting before sending them over to the Georgian room for dinner. I would bring a team here again and I will recommend it to the other travel teams in our league as well!
