Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Benoit76 Excellent stay for a long weekend
We decided to stay in Barrie; we were travelling to the Beaver river closed to Blue Mountains and then Parry Sound.
The perfect location, just one hour from Toronto.

Wonderful staff, very welcoming and friendly! The IHG Way of Sales workshop was executed perfectly, Laurie, Cheryl and their team did an amazing job. Room service and Restaurant staff were excellent, very fast and efficient. I have stayed at this property for leisure purposes as well as business purposes and I can assure you I will return to this hotel as often as possible. Hotel was kept very clean, rooms were updated and also very clean. Thank you all very much for making my stay more than enjoyable.

I am writing this review due in large part to the efforts of the staff at the Barrie location whre we stayed this past weekend
I am a Gold Member and stay at HI on a weekly basis. I always get great service at the HI but thought that the front desk staff at the Barrie HI deserved recognition for exceptional service
I presented a frustrating situation to Alannah on Sunday morning (although Shinto(?) and Matt helped Saturday night) and she immediately came to my defence and sorted the issue out with IHG Customer Service. She demonstrated patience sprinkled with the appropriate amount of forcefullness to get my situation resolved to my satisfaction.
I also wanted to compliment the restaurant and it's staff for a fantastic brunch....great food and great servers!!!!!!!!!!!
we will be back!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by CB_USA Great staff - Terrible TV reception and station selection
ALL staff I interacted with were great. They remember me every time I return to the hotel.
Do not plan on any quality TV while you are there. Reception is fuzzy an almost all channels and the number of actual channels available is very limited.
Bathroom is tiny.
Drink prices in the lounge are too high in my opinion.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by businestraveller31 Good Stay at the Holiday Inn
Comfortable night's sleep and clean guest room. Spent most of my time in the meeting rooms which were attended to fairly regularly, refreshing water and coffee service. Restaurant food was delicious; service was not consistent; sometimes it was excellent and sometimes it was slow. But room service was always quick and hot.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ontario Business Traveler Meetings at Holiday Inn Barrie
Second year in a row we held 2 days of business meetings at the Holiday Inn Barrie. Service was great as always. Special shout out for Jill from housekeeping who helped arrange for a new room when I realized I wasn't on the same floor as the meeting rooms, and without elevator service I would have had to haul numerous boxes up and down stairs.

How do you work the Air Conditioner? It was either full blast or it was turned off. No inbetween.
Need more electrical outlets.

I have stayed at this Holiday Inn 2x for conferences and have been very impressed with staff service, food and location. From top to bottom this HI is run efficiently and the guests are a top priority. Thanks for another nice stay.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Jacque22 Our "Go To" Hotel in Barrie
We almost always stay at this hotel when in Barrie unless it is already sold out.
It is always clean with friendly staff and it is very conveniently located.
The majority of the time they are able to accommodate special requests such as room location and early check in.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Jlynn2014 had problems booking but overall good experience
We had issues finding a room and confirming the number of guests. Three phone calls later, it was correct although I never received the confirmation email. Other than that, it was fine.

I travel about 100 nights per year, and stay in Barrie 25-30 nights per year. It's literally my home away from home. The hotel is comfortable, and the staff treats me like courteous family members. I look forward to my stays at the Holiday Inn Barrie - Hotel

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jeannie67 Lovely room and experience
I stay here from time to time and always enjoy it. I think the rooms are beautiful. I especially enjoy the pool, whirlpool and sauna. I slept very well and like the newspaper at my door in the morning.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Elkay59 Older hotel
I've stayed here for business before and find it well preserved. I did not like coming in for one night and the room fridge is unplugged. The notice on the fridge says it is done to save energy. I found that it meant I couldn't use it to store cold stuff I had. Furthermore, I would suggest that regular power on/off uses more energy than leaving it on.
BTW - I really enjoyed the bed!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Val51 Stay in Barrie
We have stayed at the Holiday Inn in Barrie many times. Their rooms in the Executive Tower are fantastic. Unfortunately for this stay, we had one of the drive up rooms. The room itself was fine, it was clean and the bed was comfortable. It was a cold night and the room was extremely cold. We boosted the heat up as high as it would go and we were still cold. The cold air was coming right through the patio doors. The cold affected our ability to relax and also interrupted our sleep. I would definitely stay there again, but not in a drive up room. This was not the first time that we had a drive up room and each time, we were not happy. The staff in the restaurant are outstanding. The food and service is excellent. The front desk staff are friendly. It is a great location and i would highly recommend it to any of my friends as long as they were not in a drive up room.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DougTheCanuck Needs a make over
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.
