We had an amazing stay here on our trip. We will definitely will be back to stay at this location. The front desk staff was absolutely amazing and knowledgeable. Everything was clean, fresh and laid out well. The overall experience was perfect for us!

Stayed here on many occasions. Always nice and clean. The hotel was doing some renovations when I stayed here last but it did not interfere with any of the amenities. The beds are comfortable and having a fridge and microwave is a bonus. Pool is great for the family.

Staff were not friendly or interested in guest service. House keeping tried to enter my room before checkout time. Breakfast facilities are run down though food is decent - rest of facility outside of the rooms is also run down. Shower leaked all over the floor although it was a nice new shower.

This was not my first choice in Barrie, but the two or three I preferred were fully booked. This turned out to be a blessing in disguise as we were very impressed with this hotel. The room was beautiful and the service very friendly. This will be our preferred Barrie hotel on our next visit.

Everyone at the Best Western has treated our visiting artists wonderfully. We had guests staying there during an ice storm, and staff maintained order despite intermittent power outages and raging weather outside. We really appreciate everyone there!
