Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by poor hotel management did not contact me to discuss my concerns August 29, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Clean and comfortable No worries...clean, quiet and comfortable. Breakfast was standard fare but a clean area. This is a good, clean reasonably priced hotel. Go for it. August 27, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable bed and tub. Walked into a nice cool suite on a sweltering day,the fridge kept our drinks cold while we watched a nascar race on the TV. We used the whirlpool a few times, so relaxing after a day of shopping and dining out. The bed was comfortable and we had wonderful sleep, quite simply we enjoyed our stay and would recommend this hotel to anyone. August 27, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great hotel chain Holiday Inn Express and Suites is my favorite chain of hotels to stay at whether on business or for pleasure. August 26, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by GREAT SERVICE This hotel went out of their way to accomdate me and my family. It was a difficult time to come to Barrie and celebrate my Mom's life, and they did everything possible to make our stay comfortable, and accomodating. August 26, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Quiet location Upside : Be sure to book at Bryne Ave when staying in Barrie. So much more quiet than the one off Essa Road at Highway 400. Downside : An unexpected inconvenience when we returned to the hotel to see the elevator was out of order. We climbed four flights of stairs to discover no bath towels in our room. Upon calling the front desk, reception suggested we come down and pick up the towels ourselves She was busy.. Really? Housekeeping was gone for the day. That wasn't nice. We went downstairs ourselves and got towels from the front desk. Handicapped, we might have not been so accommodating. . We have stayed at 3 HI locations in our recent travels during this month. Wii Fi was better than other locations which was tremendously inadequate. Not sure if HI is on our rebooking agenda and we travel frequently. August 25, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by just ok, for a place to sleep breakfast room far too small thin walls, noisy mould in caulking in tub August 22, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by A good night Overall, my night was fine. Check-in was swift. I was travelling with my sister & her daughter so we requested rooms close to one another, the clerk was able to oblige. My room was a standard room with a King bed, nothing special, neat & tidy. Great location as the hotel is close to the 400 highway, shopping & restaurants. We were able to walk to our restaurant of choice, which was nice after having been in the car for 3 1/2 hours. A fairly new movie theatre is just around the corner so that was convenient as well. Returning to my room after the movie, there was a pool of water on the tile just inside my door. The source was the refrigerator, the grout lines served as the water's method of transportation. I wiped it up & mentioned it upon checking out, more as an FYI than anything else. The morning desk clerk offered me a 10% discount on my stay, which I thought was a nice gesture, but I have yet to see that reflected on my credit card statement. The breakfast service had a good selection but the room itself was very small & cramped as it filled up quickly with just 12 people eating at the same time we were. I did not receive any recognition for being an IHG rewards member. A good stay. August 20, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by great 2-bedroom suite very clean, comfortable and quiet. The 2-bedroom suite was great for traveling with teenagers! Could have had another couple of chairs or a sofa in the main room. Breakfast was great! August 19, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Quiet,Clean,Comfortable & Friendly at Good Rates! We called the 'day of' to book the last room on a busy Saturday evening--the call was answered by a very pleasant sounding woman who was very professional. It was a room across from the elevator, yet we heard nothing! The A/C worked very well and the room smelt clean upon our late night check-in. We heard no noise from people in the hall and the black-out curtains were appreciated, in addition to the two choices of pillows: Soft & Firm. The linens were very good and even though the bathroom was a bit dated, the water pressure was decent and the entire room/experience was very good. The gentleman at the front desk was very clean, well groomed/dressed and was also professional. There is no charging station at this location and they are not yet EV-Friendly, for we looked for an electrical plug outside but found none. The place was packed yet breakfast and check-out went very quickly and pleasant. Good location off the 400 and other box-stores around. Would stay here again and would recommend! August 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Affordable and comfortable Good for family and leisure stay!! All you need at a very affordable rate. August 14, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Convenient and Comfortable This Holiday Inn Express was both comfortable and convenient. Only a few minutes to waterfront, downtown, casino, and any other place you wanted to go in Barrie. Helpful front desk and smooth WiFi. August 12, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Exceptional Staff Upon Check-in was greeted by Guest Relations expert Ken who helped arrange our one day leisure visit in 5 Star fashion. Request a town map of Barrie and get Ken's input on what to do... he gave our group directions and recommendations for a fun filled day in Barrie. Every Hotel should have a Ken! August 11, 2014

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Excellent Adventure Had a great time with our grandsons after a day at Santa's Village. We recommend going to the Elmvale Zoo very close and kids love it. August 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable bed and great service Really nice. Would stay again. Very friendly staff and it was pet friendly. Not all HIE are. August 11, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 Everything I needed Ended up with a full Kitchen in the room - very useful. Plenty of room for the 4 of us. August 8, 2014
Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by stay The Continental breakfast was not as good as expected from A Holiday In Express August 8, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Barrie Long Weekend The motel was busy but the staff handled it well. Although the shower head was broken and the bed was like sleeping in a bowl of jello, everything else was good. The room was clean and well cared for, breakfast was hot and plentiful in a busy but clean breakfast room. Friendly helpful staff. August 6, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Very pleased We had a very enjoyable stay at this hotel. Contrary to what some experienced, we did not find the breakfast area crowded. The staff at the front desk were very warm, friendly and welcoming. If you are travelling to Barrie, this is a good place to stay! August 4, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great location We checked in late and everything was fantastic at this hotel. My family really enjoyed the amenities at the hotel. We will stay here again when we travel to Barrie. August 4, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by The Breakfast Room can't handle a full hotel. The only real negative on our stay was Breakfast. The hotel was completely full, as I'm sure it is most Saturdays in July. The breakfast room was completely packed every time I checked. No possibility of getting a seat, and near impossible to get to the food. We had a room on the first floor, close to the breakfast room, so I didn't mind eating in my room. But I made 4 trips to the breakfast room between 9:30 and 10:30, and still didn't get what I would call a "complete" breakfast. The 2 (I think it was 2?) ladies putting food out couldn't keep up. The first three times I went there was no coffee (other than decaf). One time there was two trays of bacon, but no eggs, another time eggs, but no bacon. No yogurt. The famous cinnamon buns were scarce, but we did get some. No hope of getting a pancake because of the time it takes to make one in the machine, and the lines of people waiting. The only other minor point is that the hotel is starting to show its age. We stayed there in early 2007 when it was new, and 7 years later, the hard water in Barrie is taking its toll on the shower head. Overall, a good stay. The front desk staff were friendly and helpful, and our dog thoroughly enjoyed her stay too :) July 24, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Room and Breakfast Room and bathroom clean. Bed is comfortable. Room large and comfortable. Bathroom is clean but small. Had to go past toilet in order to close the door. Good choice of food but the breakfast room is too small so you couldn't sit and enjoy your meal. July 23, 2014
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Comfortable room The hotel was very clean, and check in was easy. My only feedback was that the bathrooms are very tight, but that's nor something you can really change. the only other thing I found was that the breakfast room is very small. It's the size of a hotel room. As such it is very difficult to move between tables and it was very crowded and was quite hot and stuffy. Might be worth having an overflow room if possible. Other than that it was a great stay and I would stay there again. July 23, 2014
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Needs work The gym equipment did not work. Hot tub was out of order for the entire time of my stay. The furniture in the suite could use some updating/repairs. I will not stay at this facility again. July 21, 2014
