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!

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!

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.

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!
