My wife & I stayed here for 2 weekend nights, Saturday & Sunday, in early July. We were attending a family event south of Barrie so the Super 8's location worked well for us.
Plenty of parking, check in was efficient, staff was always courteous & friendly, our room was clean, the bed was comfortable and the wi-fi worked fine. That is, the wi-fi worked fine when signing on with Internet Explorer, could connect but could not sign on via Mozella/Firefox.
The hotel is pet friendly and on checking in we noticed that several guests were taking advantage of that. We asked if we could have a room that was not used by pets and were assigned a corner room on the top (4th) floor.
We only had one common wall but noisy neighbours next door. I think they were part of a big group that was there to party. At about 11:30 PM we called the front desk for the second time to complain about the noise next door. No idea what action the staff threatened but it worked. The noise stopped a few minutes later and we had no further problem.
There is only one small elevator for guest use and it is very slow. We found it quicker to use the stairs when descending but had to wait a while when going up to the room.
The breakfast was good and we appreciated the free coffee that seemed to be available 24/7.
We did not use the pool so we have no opinion about that.
This is not a five star hotel and does not pretend to be. It is a solid 3, maybe 3 1/2 and we would not hesitate to stay again.
