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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by TruckerBob 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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Middlesis 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.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Woodsy99 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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by soogrl 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!
