I read the recent (most glowing) reviews with suspicion. This is a better than average Super 8, but it's still a Super 8. The desk clerk was new and wasn't able to answer some very basic questions. The beds were comfortable, but the breakfast might convince you to eat elsewhere.

Dear Schroem79,

Thank you for taking out the time to write us a review. We are thankful to all of our guests for writing glowing reviews about our property. We continuously strive to provide excellent customer service, clean rooms and a good breakfast at a great value. Unfortunately, we are not perfect and I apologize for our Guest Service Associate not being able to answer a few of your questions. I am surprised that you did not enjoy our breakfast, as the majority of our guests have complimented us on our wide array of breakfast options. Our brand standards do not require us to provide guests with a Hot Buffet Breakfast, but we go above and beyond to provide the following breakfast options: Cheddar Cheese Omelettes or Scrambled Eggs, Sausage Links, Fresh make-it-yourself Belgian Waffles and a variety of breads, bagels, muffins, cereals, fruits, yogurts and juices. Our guests have rated us #1 on Tripadvisor, not because we are the best hotel in the city, but because we have exceeded their expectations more than any other hotel in Barrie and have changed their perception of the Super 8 brand. We look forward to hosting you during your next visit to Barrie.

Sincerely,

Mick Ahluwalia
General Manager

Dear Michael K,

Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. I apologize for your problems with the wireless internet during your stay and can assure you that this is a rare occurrence at our property as we have recently upgraded our wireless internet infrastructure to a system that is 5 times faster. If there is ever a problem with the wireless internet at our hotel, we urge guests to call down to the front desk and we can assist them with rectifying the situation. Some guest computers have firewalls that block them from accessing our WIFI service and we have a 24-hour technical support service to assist guests through this and many other computer-related problems.

In terms of breakfast options, we go above and beyond our brand requirements to provide the following breakfast options: Cheddar Cheese Omelettes or Scrambled Eggs, Sausage Links, Fresh make-it-yourself Belgian Waffles and a variety of breads, bagels, muffins, 4 types of cereals, fruits, yogurts and juices. We have 2 counters in our breakfast bar area. You seemed to have missed the counter that features our cereals, yogurt and fruits. These items have been mainstays of our breakfast since the opening of our hotel 4 years ago. We hope to have you stay with us again during your next visit to Barrie and once again apologize for any inconvenience during your stay.

Yours in Hospitality,

Mick Ahluwalia
General Manager

Pros: Free room upgrade for no apparent reason, the staff were very friendly, fast and easy check -in. Very helpful. Complimentary breakfast was better than most hotels. Great location - all the popular restaurants within walking distance.

Nice suite with Jacuzzi, big open space, fireplace, and kitchenette all for $90.

Cons: Beds and pillows weren't the greatest for me (may be great for others). Pillows were too small and soft for me. Could have probably asked for new ones.

Overall great stay and I can definitely see why this hotel is ranked number 1 in Barrie.

As far as hwy hotels goes this was a great hotel to stay in. The front desk guy was awesome and had a great sense of humour. The rooms were clean, the beds were comfy, the pillows were fluffy and the bathroom was clean. There was a great breakfast set up and the location of hotel was easy to find. Don't hesitate to stay here.

I had an extended stay with my family at super 8 motel for about two weeks and i must say the room, value and continental breakfast all very nice. The free Wi-Fi definitely came in handy on my extended stay and had the best price in the area. The rooms were clean and comfortable with no lingering odors. The staff was very polite and professional and very helpful. I highly recommend this hotel, especially for the bargain hunters.
