Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by omemee9 Fire alarm went off
Alarm went off 3am in the morning. The night staff did nothing to let people know if it was a serious situation
or not. I saw a 85-90 year lady with a walker going out for the fire alarm without any help from staff. After finding out it was the hot water tank the lady was told to go back to her room. She asked if she could take the elevator and the staff said no... Poor lady!!!
otherwise nice stay

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by gasher Comfortable room but long in the tooth
The hotel provided a quiet and relaxing setting after a long days work.
The big plus is that it had a bar and restaurant service on its premises which is very hard to find in Barrie, Ont.
The room I stayed in could use some up dating/refreshing as could the carpets on the hallways.
The self serve breakfast was a bit more upscale than most but would have preferred a full scale brkfst. The hostess was nowhere to be seen so I had no chance to ask about the availability of a full breakfast service.
Another big plus was that the traffic noise from the Hwy 400 was quite muted, so sleeping was great.
Staff were very pleasant and accommodating and friendly

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jay8822 Average Hotel
Overall this is an average hotel in all aspects. Barrie has limited hotel choices. This Holiday Inn could be very good or excellent if they made some upgrades, specifically the area of Technology and Plug in Availability. All electrical outlets are being used by the TV, Lamps, Microwave or Refridgerator, Only one is available in the bathroom. Feel like competitors are advanced in this area. Also the hotel entrance and room key are unreliable. Sometimes they work, sometimes they don't. This needs to be upgraded or serviced to be more reliable. Hotel Room furniture is quite outdated. On a positive note, the Hotel Food is reasonably priced and very good.

Usually stay here when in Barrie, have found it to be one of the best with all the amenities on site so you don't have to travel, excellent food and staff.

The room was very easy to access and nice and clean. We arrived late and left early so we didn't have time to use any amenities. We found a parking spot right outside the door to our room so it was quick and convenient.
