hotel is fine, staff friendly. Free breakfast was satisfactory. Should have discounted the price a bit because hotel was under construction and parking was tough with 3 dumpsters taking up parking spaces and the pool was out of order.

I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for work one night. Overall the accommodation was good. The room was modern, clean and breakfast was nice. A couple of things to note: Breakfast doesn't start till 6:30 so I had five minutes to grab something for the road which made breakfast less enjoyable. I wanted to pay cash for my room...

Compared to other hotels in the Barrie area I would have given this property 4 stars except for a few things. Rooms are large, quite comfortable, and clean but they are showing some signs of age. Frayed carpet in one room. The caulking in quite a few places around the tub needs to be replaced. Had we planned on using...

My husband and I booked a stay here last weekend (July 18). I guess the prices are up because of the PanAm Games. But there's no way our room was worth $279. A king bed with a whirlpool bath. Big deal. Housekeeping was at the door at 0830 in the morning, then again at 0930. Whats the rush????

A great hotel in a great location. Close to everything. Very clean-will definitely recommend & stay again! We opted for the suite with kitchenette-worth the extra $ as this was a 2nd rm, Would be an economical choice for a family if you wanted to eat in. Full size fridge. The breakfast her (included in price) had something for everyone-even...

The staff were friendly, knowledgable and helpful from the moment we walked in and throughout our stay. This location was close to many amenities, restaurants and shopping which was very convenient.

We have stayed here in the past and based on that returned again as a stop on a motorcycle trip with 15 riders. Reservations for the group were handled efficiently.
