Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Elizabeth38 great service and great room
I can count on great service and it's located to all the things I need in the area. The beds are very comfortable. Great night sleep. Can't beat the location right off the highway.
I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants to have a great stay in Barrie.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by heddyjk Great service, bed comfortable
We stayed 2 different nights recently at the Barrie location.
Service was great each time and rooms very clean.
The first night we were in a king bed suite which had a heavy warm duvet on the bed so I didn't sleep very well.
The second night had a seasonally appropriate light duvet on the bed and gave a better sleep.
One comment in general about all Holiday Inn's is the terrible design of the bathroom where the door opens right into the toilet and you need to close the door to use the toilet or have a shower.
When renovating this chain ought to look at a different bathroom layout which doesn't seem so awkward. I have been in other bathrooms in other hotels which were the same sized room but a better layout so the door didn't almost run into the toilet!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 2Pat54 Comfortable and close to food
close to all brand name resturants - you can walk if you wish
beds are comfortable
good breakfast, room is smaller than other HI's I've been in
but the food is just as good
my only complaint and it is wee- is the bathroom is small- it
is best if only one person tries to use it at one time
otherwise the room was clean
The staff did their best put all of us together and some in adjoining rooms etc.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DarrenT Kids and the Pool
Hot-tub was great -especially since its close to the pool. The only downside was the overall temperature of the pool which was around 74-76 degrees. If they could turn it to around 79+ it would be awesome!! Just a thought and a hope........

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Biko Passing through
Great value, clean rooms, great location close to several restaurants and shopping. Unfortunately we hit a time where the pancake machine broke down and they spent more time trying to fix it than keeping other food items available, when I questioned the front desk all she said was "it is only complimentary" (I think not!) People choose hotel deals based on many things and hot breakfast included plays an import part, Mc D's breakfast for three would cost about $12, a restaurant $20.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Deafnowlol Comfortable bed with a selection of pillows
Super comfortable mattress.
Firm and soft pillows on the bed.
No running kids from a hockey game running in the halls.
Security cameras in the hall ways.
Good selection of food at breakfast.
Check out was quick.
We didn't use the pool but it sure looked inviting!
The only draw back was the bathroom was a little on the small size so with 2 people getting ready it is cramped.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by pmarch35 Not Bad but not up to Par
Rooms are ok, Old, need updating.
Elevator is way way way too slow.
cant bring a luggage cart thru lobby if there is someone in there.
Staff at front desk are not helpful or nice. They are just there to do a job and that is it. They did not even acknowlledge I was a Platinum member.
very very average Hotel.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Riceman The Barrie Experience
I had the opportunity to stay at this Holiday INN while working on a contract in the area. I found the staff to be very helpful and friendly, the accommodations at a level expected or above offered by Holiday INN. I would not hesitate to return and in fact I am and will use this location as our business hub while working in the Barrie area. All in all a very good experience, thank you

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Liz2013 Convenient Location
Easy access to major highway. Lots of shopping close by. Staff were friendly, service was great. Breakfast was good. The only thing I would suggest to management is to give the bathroom an upgrade....it was looking a little tired and worn.
I would stay here again.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jiminthecity Nice place,good stay, no breakfast
Although a little worn, the room and hotel were very nice.
The front staff very efficient and helpful.
The Breakfast selection was poor and out of everything!
Because the previous day was "busy" they had no coffee cream,orange juice, yogurt, scrambled eggs,ceramic cups,real cutlery, fruit other than bananas,fresh bread or working pancake machine!
Apparently no one could hop in a car and head to Wal mart for the remaining guests!
