“Nice room, okay complimentary breakfast & helpful staff.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 March 2012

I stayed here on business. In short, there are no high-end hotels in Barrie, so this is a good solid choice. Check-in was quick. The room was clean and nice. The full kitchenette would be good for saving money not eating out all the time. The staff was friendly & helpful when I had questions. I would not recommend Jack Astor's across the street for food though it was recommended by the front desk. Check-out was a breeze.

Room Tip: Keep in mind they offer rooms with a full kitchenette. This would be a good choice if staying a whi...

Stayed at this hotel twice in March. Rooms are not overly clean. Black marks on the tiles in the bathrooms. Dust in corners and along edges of room and furniture. Fridge had stains inside. Air conditioning/heating units are very noisy....best to leave manually leave fan on low and let air or heat cut in as necessary. Not sure how sheets are laundered but on both occassions sheets and towels had a very strong bleach odour. It's not particularly objectionable but I suspect it could cause problems for those with allergies.
Rooms are extremely quiet - even tho on the second stay we were close to the elevator and the hotel was full. Breakfast was the usual HI fare. The big difference was in the staffing of the breakfast room. On the first stay the server had her nose buried in a book and wasn't refilling empty trays. On the seocnd stay we were greeted with a cheery good morning and that alone seemed to up the quality of the food a notch.
Good accessible parking and lots of lights in the room for working and reading.

I have been staying at Holiday Inn Expresses in Ontario as they are clean, affordable and you always have the fairly same thing at each every one. Good value for the money.

The staff and management of the Holiday Inn Express are very accomodating. They truly care about their guests and did everything possible to make it a memorable stay. This is our second time as a group at this hotel, we always receive great service and will be back.

The hotel was a great place to stay! The front desk staff was very courteous and friendly. The room was clean and VERY spacious. There was plenty of room to relax without feeling cramped. Bed was very comfortable. The showerhead was the only thing I did not like. The service in the breakfast room was outstanding. The attendant was very friendly and hospitable. She was talking to guests and kept us updated as to when the freshly cooked food would be finished. Great service. Everything tasted great. We really enjoyed this hotel.
