Super 8 Barrie
Ranked #3 of 19 Hotels in Barrie
Reviewed March 19, 2014 via mobile

The hotel offers a fairly competitive price. Not too many negatives, other than: the fireplace in our room did not work, the walls are very thin (right beside the stairwell), the pool is very small, and the breakfast is not very good. Other than that, the room was spacious, clean, and had a mini fridge which was convenient. In addition, the hotel is centrally located with many restaurant options, shopping and activities within minutes of the hotel. I would personally recommend Pie pizzeria, a 5-minute drive from the hotel; it is a sit-in family restaurant that was featured on Food Network's "You gotta eat here." Overall, a fairly seemless experience other than the minor faults which I hope will be fixed in the future. Would stay again.

Stayed here overnight on the first weekend of March Break.

There. Were. Kids. EVERYWHERE! Yelling screaming, running, no parents in sight. Serving themselves at breakfast (extremely hot waffle machine?!?) and making a huge mess.
I think Super * may want to invest in a "We are no responsible for children blah blah " sign.

Also, I have 12 mystery bug bites on my body. I desperately hope they're spider bites because if I brought bed bugs home from that hotel in my luggage I'm going to lose it.

Dear Claire T,

Thank you for your review! We have just searched our database and we have no record of you staying at our hotel. Furthermore, our front desk staff keeps a detailed log of everything that occurs during their shift, and if something of this nature would have occurred, we expect that a guest would have relayed this to the hotel which was not the case. I believe that you have posted your review to the wrong location as we have never had complaints of this nature from our guests since our opening in March 2007. Also, it is unfair to make an accusation of bed bugs against any hotel without first seeing evidence of bugs in your guest room as you could have been bitten while you were not at the hotel.
