I stayed at this hotel with my partner and a good friend while we were in town for a wedding North of Barrie. The three of us shared a 2-queen bed room for two nights.
I must say I had low expectations.
The front desk staff was excellent. Having never been to Barrie, we asked what there was to do in the neighbourhood the night before the big day. We were directed to an excellent pizzeria near the restaurant and a Galaxy Cinemas at the end of the street.
The next day we took advantage of the free self-serve breakfast bar. Certainly not the best food, but hot, available and free just the same. There was also a small pool and whirlpool--well maintained and stocked with plenty of pool towels.
The room and bathroom were clean, the beds comfortable. We were also surprised at how large the hotel room was. All in all, a pleasant stay.
