For the price we pay, this hotel is not so bad. The room is comfortable with a nice bed.. if you are looking for anything else, then you shouldn't look to book here. The hair dryer doesn't seem to work and the breakfast options are very less. But again, you get for what you pay and it was worth the... More

So I decided to stay at this hotel on a Friday in spite of some of the bad reviews I read and I'm glad I did. I've driven past this hotel many times and the outside is always clean and there's plenty of parking spaces. As for the complaints others left about noise, you booked a stay at a hotel... More

The first room we were given had a gaping hole at the bottom of the door, so the room was freezing, since it was minus 20! They were able to put us in another room, but the experience wasn't any better. The room was dated, felt like we were on a slant, it was still cold, I couldn't seem to... More

We stayed at this hotel because we were in Barrie for a Blues festival and the main act was playing at the hotel. We were frightened by some of the reviews - over half were quite negative. I am not sure what people expect. It is a budget hotel. The room was clean, the bedding was clean, the room was... More

First off the room was on a slant and it felt like you were on a boat. This is obviously the local place to party after going to the bar. No one stopped the all night party, with loud music playing till 7 am, people partying in the parking lot outside their rooms or the yelling and drama. I would... More

The room was small, and it smelled of cigarette smoke. {I'm a non-smoker} Although Staff were nice and the breakfast was good. Considering the price it was tolerable for just a night, also its located 5 minutes from downtown Barrie and the beautiful lakeshore.
