“The best deal around”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 15, 2014 via mobile

I get a partial kitchenette, private twin rooms, very quiet and very clean. The staff is more than friendly and try to help In any way. The continental breakfast saves a buck and is all you meet to start the day.

We were there with 5 other couples for a church function. Booked 4 2 bedrooms room and 1 3 bedrooms room. We stayed for 2 nights

Location is great as it is right off the highway.

I feel like I am back to University life as it looks exactly like a dorm room. The room is only $79/night/room which is a very good price. It comes with a fridge and a sink. cleaning service, towels are included as well.

Check in is fairly simple with free parking.
The bed is surprisingly comfortable for myself and my wife. A/C is strong.

If you have kid, there is a nice basketball court, field hockey ring and beach volleyball court.
So there is quite a few outdoor activities you are do.

One last thing, They have free coffee and tea from 7 - 11am in the lobbey.

Room Tip: try not to drink the tab water as it tastes funny

The Georgian Summer Suites were an economical accommodation choice for a 4 day stay in Barrie! Loved having the option to use laundry services, common kitchens to cook, free parking and Internet, as well as each suite had two bedrooms and kitchen area.

The access cards were programmed for two separate bedrooms, each room with its own card pass. The rooms had huge closets with built in storage racks, a small tv and AC controls. It is wired Internet but they provide cable connect in room. The beds are firm, but nothing fancy. Windows open for fresh air.

The bathroom had a stand up shower only but storage room under the sink for towels and toiletries. Extra towel bundles can be picked up at the front desk

Each kitchen had a full size fridge, microwave and sink. You need to bring your own utensils, cooking supplies, dish soap etc as the cupboards are bare. :). The dining room has two chair and a table suitable for all meals.

For a place to crash for 4 days during a busy wedding weekend and visit this was perfect. It was clean, quiet, comfortable, and affordable. Just remember to bring your 'luxuries'. At $69 a night, you can afford to.

My husband and our daughters stayed here for two nights while vacationing in the area. We chose this location because of the price. So we knew going into it that this was not going to be luxurious. That is okay, we just wanted a space to sleep. For us it fit the bill. The suite was very spacious, giving all of us room to spread out. The beds were comfortable enough. I was glad to have read previous reviews to be prepared to bring utensils etc. Customer service was good. Due to constuction we got turned around entering the site. A phone call gave us friendly and accurate directions. The front desk staff answered all our questions politely through out our stay. On the down side. The room had not been cleaned well upon our arrival. There were clean sheets and towels, but the cupboards contained open food stuffs left from a previous guest, and there were wrappers etc. on the floor. Worst of all was a damp towel and pair of shorts left behind in a drawer. They must have been there for quite some time as they REEKED. Mildew had really moved in. Removing them from the drawer made the whole suite smell. :( That was but a blip. We went into this stay prepared and would stay again. The price is right. If you want more amenities, stay at a more expensive hotel.

We just came from a visit in Barrie... I saw all these good reviews... But I have at least five reasons why you should not stay there... We wanted to save a lil money... But I assure you we will NEVER stay there again.. I would rather pay $30 extra dollars a night for a different hotel.
Reasons for bad stay:
1) HORRIBLE customer service... Very rude... Not helpful.
2) my son threw up one night and they told us to out the blankets And sheets in the hall... We did, but then they never picked them up... I called repeatedly to tell them they were still in the hall... FINALLY they picked them up the day before we left.
3) they never serviced our room and gave us new towels when they said they would once every 3 days.. We called to complain and they ignored our request until a day before we left.
4) students were throwing a party so we couldn't sleep.
5)the beds are in horrible condition... Very uncomfortable and squeaked loudly.

I was a bit nervous after reading some negative reviews on this site (only two or so I think?), but we were incredibly impressed with our stay.
Positives: Amazing price, and literally I think we were the only ones on our floor, very quiet, very clean, I have no complaints. Nice little kitchen, family room area, and all of it for under $70.

As for negatives, maybe just a long walk from the parking lot to the front door, but thats just my laziness talking! The only real negative is the employees, they are all younger people who aren't blatently rude, but just don't seem all that interested in being there. Beds are a bit small, fine for me and my GF, but if you need your space, you might want to get a 2 bdrm suite.

Will definitely return.

Room Tip: Ask to be placed away from the crowd (if there is one) while we were there they had a wedding and co...

We've stayed at the Georgian Summer Accommodation twice, and found it to be an excellent option to motels in the area. The cost was very reasonable, and the suite was spacious, and clean. We enjoyed having the kitchen for breakfast and lunch, although the first time we hadn't realized we needed to bring our eating utensils. Both times it was very quiet and we would certainly recommend using this facility. There was very convenient free parking as well.

Room Tip: bring any dishes and cutler
