Stayed here one night for a friend's wedding and I can remember getting about 2 hours of sleep because of that air conditioner that sounded like an airport hangar. I am not a light sleeper. I don't know if all the rooms are like this.

Otherwise it was clean, newly renovated, front desk staff was nice, breakfast was consistent with other Holiday Inns, lots of parking, close to Highway 400 and a plaza with a Walmart and other big box stores.

We stayed at this location as the closest available to Collingwood for the Elvis Festival just 42 kilometers away. The price was reasonable and convenient location just off the main highway 400 at Mapleview Dr Barrie. The hotel is next to the commercial development mall and all the restaurants and services you would want. We ate at the Jack Astors restaurant on the corner with an Elvis decorated theme room. The hotel has an indoor pool and exercise room with fridge and coffee maker in the room. Hotel is newer and well taken care of. The included breakfast the next morning includes scrambled eggs bacon and sausage besides all the rest of cereals fruit bagels muffins etc. Great place for an overnight or weekend any time of the year for swimming at Wasaga Beach or skiing at Collingwood. Highly recommended.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Barrie en route for Toronto. It is a very nice hotel, well situated off the Mapleview drive. There's a Beer store and tons of restaurant to choose from. It is also located near Hwy 400 but this hotel is extremely quiet. Staff was great at both check-in and check-out. Super friendly and helpful, we've been informed of the best scenario to reach our destination at night in nearby Toronto.

Breakfast was as always, hot and plenty of choices to choose from.
The only downside was the very, very small bathroom.

When you walk through the doors of the hotel you'll notice how very welcoming and spotless the lobby is. The front desk staff are professional, friendly and very helpful. My husband and I thought it was a nice treat to receive granola bars and bottles of water when checking in. Our room was lovely and more importantly the bed was very comfortable, we had a quiet and restful night. The next morning we went to the Breakfast Room and had a very satisfying breakfast. Cereal, toast, bagels, fruit, yogourt, juice, scrambled eggs, coffee or milk. A nice surprise with the addition of a pancake maker. The staff in the Breakfast Room was very attentive to the needs of the guests, she was busy and was there to refill the empty spots as needed.

This hotel was clean, quiet, and just what we expected from a Holiday Inn Express. Check in was easy and fast, service was professional, and the breakfast was better than expected. They even have this really neat automatic pancake maker that made tasty pancakes for this picky eater.If ever I make it back to Barrie, this will be top on my list.

BTW, this is NOT the Holiday Inn you see from the highway. But it's only 5 minutes away.

Enjoy your stay

Our family spent two nights at this hotel while skiing in the area. The suite was spacious, clean and quiet. The beds were comfy, the breakfast was adequate and the staff were friendly and helpful. Served its purpose for being close to the highway and getting to and from the ski hills. Lived up to the Holiday Inn Express reputation.
