Fast check-in to a clean room. Even received an adjoining room with the couple we
were with. Good choice for breakfast and it is included in the price of the room.

Agree with another poster that the bathroom is too small. Can barely get in there to shut the door, never mind think of having 2 people in there @ once eg one in shower one brushing their teeth, if pushed for time.

All in all really no complaints, just that small comment.

The price was right for what we received :-)

Room with separate queen well worth the money with kids. Bathroom dated and could be cleaner otherwise room and linens clean. Good breakfast. Excellent location in commercial district, close to highway 400 many restaurant chains, big box stores and movies. Pool just big enough to cool off and allow kids some fun.

Stayed at Holiday Inn Express Friday 23rd Aug,2013 and Saturday 24th. Room was ok... but washroom was Tiiiiiny!!! When you opened or closed the door the door nearly hit the toilet. Very very close. Would not be able to sit down and then close. They said that all the washrooms were like that when I asked if there was a room with bigger washroom, but said they were going to update. No need for huge washroom but this is just way way too small!
The young front desk clerk was very nice and welcoming!

When I first called to book my hotel with Holiday Inn, I let them know that I needed a hotel with no smoking. They referred me to the hotel on Bryne street as it is a smoke free building. I have to say, they live up to that promise and I found that our rooms were pleasant and enjoyable due to this. The bedding was clean and didn't smell like strong cleaners (usually I can't stand the scent on the pillow cases and blankets) but this was not the case - everything was fresh.

The rooms were clean... there was a tiny bit of spotting in the corner of the shower and a bit of dirt on the floor in the bathroom, but overall, it was not an issue that was a problem. Everything else was tidy and neat.

The room had a mini area with a microwave, fridge and a coffee pot... they also had very nice little soaps on the counter. The staff was helpful and cheerful (which was nice after a long drive to the hotel). The room came with one chair and a desk and it would have been nice to have a second chair that we both could have used the table at the same time.

The breakfast was fine (toast, fruit, juice and coffee) but there were options for bacon, eggs, cereal and a few other items.. It's not a five star breakfast, its just enough to get you going in the morning.....the eating area was crowded (so I took my meal upstairs to our room).. things got a bit cold as the elevator is slow.

The only problem I really had, was that the fans in the bathroom never-shut-off. So you heard the whirrrringg all through the night. The beds were comfortable enough and the blankets and pillows nice enough that it did compensate for the sound a bit, and I ended up having a nice sleep.

The location is okay - you are only a few km from getting back on the 400 and close enough to restaurants that you could plan to walk just about everywhere you needed.

For the price? It was an okay stay. It didn't break the bank and we all slept alright.

We appreicate all of your feedback regarding our property. We are pleased you enjoyed our fresh triple sheet bedding and our smoke free enviornment! Many guests like the convenience of the mini fridge and microwave in every guestroom. We are glad you were able to enjoy your breakfast in the convenience of your room as the breakfast room does have peak times which makes it a little more busy. The fans in our washrooms draw fresh air at all times on a low speed and the fan increased to a higher speed when the lights are on. We agree that we great staff and we look forward to your next visit!

Stayed one night over the long weekend in Aug as we were going on the Serendipity Princess for a family birthday. Let me say the one thing I like about the Holiday Inn Express you know what to expect, this one was no different very friendly staff and very clean rooms. My wife and I enjoyed the pool and hot tub. nice way to relax before the cruise. The breakfast was good; if you’re looking for something else there are a lot of restaurants nearby. This Hotel is in a great location not far from the highway and about 20 mins to downtown. Only negative was the bathroom was a little small and no safe in the room for one night no big deal. This was are fourth time at A holiday Inn express great hotels for short stays

Room Tip: Go down early for breakfast as it gets busy around 8:30

We thank you for sharing your wonderful comments about our hotel and staff! We appreciate your comments about the bathroom and hope our large guestrooms were able to compensate. We agree that our location is convenient to Highway #400 and has lots of choices for dining in the area. We are glad you were able to have the time to enjoy our indoor swimming pool and a relaxing hot tub. We do offer a safe in our business centre or our front desk staff will be pleased to assist you on your next visit to Barrie.
