Super 8 Barrie
Ranked #2 of 19 Hotels in Barrie
Reviewed November 19, 2012

Booked hear for a Saturday night, based on trip advisor. I felt let down as it was not that great! The rooms were clean but average at best.
I asked for the best rate when booking, I received a prepaid rate but was not told it was prepaid rate. I was surprised when I saw the charge on my visa bill before arriving.
The worst part, the DOG next door barked all night. Than howled and cried for an hour when its owner went for breakfast.!! Complained to front desk but nothing happened. Will not return. Recommend the Hampton's or Days Inn.

Dear gIB4Gib,

Thank you for writing us a review. At the time of making your reservation, you were persistent that you wanted the best possible rate and our Guest Service Associate offered you our Prepaid Advance Purchase Rate which gives you a 15% discount if you book and pre-pay 7 days in advance. All hotel chains offer discounts for reservations that are prepaid and booked in advance. We only went ahead with the reservation when we received your okay. As a result, you were charged before your arrival date. This is our normal procedure for Prepaid reservations. I apologize for the noise from the dog next door, and I can assure you that we try our best to keep noise to a minimum while being a proud pet-friendly hotel. Although, Tripadvisor.com is a forum for guest's to voice their pleasure or displeasure, it most certainly is not a place to advertise other hotel properties in the surrounding area.

All the Best,

Mick Ahluwalia
General Manager

I saw that you were #1 on trip advisor in Barrie and decided that was the place for us to stay. We own the Leisure Inn in Haileybury and our customers have us rated #1 in Haileybury so we knew your Hotel would be great. I noticed some negative comments about your breakfast, but I thought it was great. Waffles, eggs and lots of variety. Excellent Job. Nice ladies providing customer service. we will come again and if you send me some pamphlets I will send guests to stay with you. Thanks
