Please ignore reviews that say this place is horrible. I have been here for a week now and the hotel is very clean, staff are friendly and helpful, breakfast is great with lots of variety for a small hotel. Rooms all have clean towels and clean sheets/blankets. Rooms are spacious and some even have access to the parking lot. Great...

Shannonville, Canada
Reviewed 9 January 2017

Dirty mattresses, dirty rooms, no blankets or sheets available, very rude, and unprofessional staff. This was by far my worst experience at a Best Western. I have never encountered such a poor quality of service. I have emailed the manager, and still have not received a response. Overall, I do not recommend this hotel to anyone!

stayed in Barrie to go skiing in Collingwood. Nothing was available in my price range-<100.00 in Collingwood. It was a 50m drive but saved a hundred bucks or more. Would stay again if nothing available in Collingwood.

Staff was friendly. Room was wonderful. Clean and quiet. Breakfast was delicious. Would recommend this hotel for sure. We stayed here on New Years Eve and it was still relatively quiet. Lots to do and see in Barrie as well.

Easy on/off access to major highway and downtown Barrie waterfront. Friendly staff, clean facilities and relatively good value. Once the renovations are complete, I would rate the motel a 10 overall. Lots of parking, good size bathroom, lots of choices at breakfast.
