The Barrie Holiday Inn is the only facility in Barrie where you can stay, and get something to eat without going outside....which is a nice feature in snowy cold Barrie.
The restaurant was excellent. They need more staff, as the two ladies that looked after the dining room and the bar were run off their feet. We have stayed there several times, and it's always the same.
The rooms are tired. This place needs a major face lift.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Annoyed Hockey Dad Hockey Tournament
Purpose of our visit was for a hockey tournament. We have stayed at many hotels for tournaments before and this was one of the worst as far as a team stay.
Our team was split into 2 different wings in the hotel with another competing team in-between. No hospitality suites, although the conference rooms where empty. Which lead to people parting in the halls to all hours. Nothing wrong with fun but in other hotels we have been given a room to contain the noise.
We had to book via the tournament at a special rate but had to book 2 nights even if we where eliminated from the tournament. Yet we had family book separately that got the same rate.
The kids where not aloud to play mini sticks in the halls, Other hotels have made a ministick arena in a conference room.
I would think when you get people booking 30 room nights you would be more hospitable.

I was dispointed because TV cable is limitted here and there is no french channel at all. Everywhere else in Canada have at least 1 channel in french (SRC) and much more channels on cable. When you,re alone in hotel room, you like to have good tv channels.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Whistance Great service and staff in the restaurant
We ended staying for dinner at the restaurant, it was Saturday night , they had a prime rib buffet. Very good, lot's of choices. The staff was especially nice, Jenny our server was very helpful and pleasant. It was my granddaughter's birthday, and Jenny had the chef make her a special bowl of birthday ice cream with a candle, and they sang Happy Birthday to her. We also had breakfast there the next morning and again had the buffet, which was good. The room was clean and comfortable. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by cusbkid Dirty room, disrespectful staff, terrible service.
Upon my arrival, there were a half dozen empty beer bottles left on the balcony outside of my room, the room reeked of cigarette smoke and the bathroom shower wall and floor were absolutely disgusting (both covered in hair and dirt). The staff at this hotel were not accommodating at all and the service was terrible.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by sudbury50 Ok service, terrible food
Room was clean but dated. Hotel needs an update. Had dinner in the restaurant and was very disappointed. No promised refills on the kids drinks and the salads and soup tasted a week old. One had the dinner buffet and didn't go back!

My husband and I have stayed at various hotels in various cities and found this hotel to have the friendliest staff and the cleanest room. We will definitely be returning to this hotel in the summer so that we can enjoy the various outdoor activities available in Barrie.
