“Good Hotel for the money”
Reviewed 8 August 2013

Stayed one night over the long weekend in Aug as we were going on the Serendipity Princess for a family birthday. Let me say the one thing I like about the Holiday Inn Express you know what to expect, this one was no different very friendly staff and very clean rooms. My wife and I enjoyed the pool and hot tub. nice way to relax before the cruise. The breakfast was good; if you’re looking for something else there are a lot of restaurants nearby. This Hotel is in a great location not far from the highway and about 20 mins to downtown. Only negative was the bathroom was a little small and no safe in the room for one night no big deal. This was are fourth time at A holiday Inn express great hotels for short stays

Room Tip: Go down early for breakfast as it gets busy around 8:30

We thank you for sharing your wonderful comments about our hotel and staff! We appreciate your comments about the bathroom and hope our large guestrooms were able to compensate. We agree that our location is convenient to Highway #400 and has lots of choices for dining in the area. We are glad you were able to have the time to enjoy our indoor swimming pool and a relaxing hot tub. We do offer a safe in our business centre or our front desk staff will be pleased to assist you on your next visit to Barrie.

Visited with a group of eight people on a motorcycle ride. Hotel staff were very helpful in arranging a group booking.

On arrival check-in was fast and staff were very friendly.

Rooms are clean and beds very comfortable and soft and firm pillows are provided. The bathrooms are a bit small compared to some other hotels used recently. Not a real issue but several riders commented on this.

The breakfast was very good with a nice selection. Staff kept items well supplied. Everyone enjoyed the breakfast.

There are many restaurants a short walk away and it is close to Highway 400 so access is very easy.

This was a great hotel to stay at while our group took part in Warrior Dash. The room was a nice size and the beds were comfortable. I didn't use the pool, but did soak in the hot tub. It isn't very big, but that was fine. The breakfast the next day was really good and it was nice that there was coffee in the lobby when the breakfast wasn't on. There were eggs, sausages, bacon, bagels, toast, rolls and a pancake machine (much better than the messy waffle makers that some hotels have, but it would be nice if you could choose one or two pancakes.) There was a fridge there and I think that there was yogurt and hard-boiled eggs in there. There was also coffee, juice and milk to drink. Check in and out was quick and the staff were very friendly. I used the internet early in the morning and found it very quick. There are lots of stores and restaurants within walking distance of the hotel. Would definitely stay here again if in the area.

in general it was a very good experience, hotel location is very convenience, staff are very kind, rooms and bathrooms are very clean and smell fresh. internet speed is good, specially when you use it in unexpected time of other guests. breakfast was very good too.
we had bad chance, since some young soccer teams were visiting the hotel and the noise was terrible up to 10PM and also during afternoon around the small pool.
Elevators were VERY SLOW!

The rooms were OK and clean. The breakfast was also OK with a few warm items. While we were there the hot tub next to the pool was emptied and was cordoned off with yellow caution tape. I think a kid playing at the pool could have fallen in and gotten hurt.

Thank you for your concerns. We did have the hot tub closed for a short period while general maintenance was being completed. The maintenance was completed on a weekday to ensure there was less traffic in the pool area. We did our best to finish this task as quickly as possible and took the precaution of cordoning off the area. We did keep the swimming pool open for our guests as children must be supervised at all times.

We take great pride in our property and appreciate your positive comments regarding the cleanliness of our guestrooms! As well, our Hot Express Start Breakfast is a favorite with many of our guests. Once again, thank you for your review and we look forward to your next visit to Barrie.

While traveling home from northern to southern Ontario at the end of our weeks vacation on July 7/13, my partner and I had to make an unexpected stop in Barrie due to car troubles. It was a Sunday and the car repair involved waiting for a part to be delivered from Toronto the next day, so we had to stay overnight. The Holiday Inn Express on Bryne Drive was close in proximity, so we checked in once they confirmed they would welcome our two larger dogs - each weighing 72 pounds. We were given a room on the first floor that was clean and well maintained, with a fridge and microwave and two very comfortable queen size beds. The management was also kind enough to allow us to store two coolers full of frozen meat (that we were transporting south with us) in their Breakfast Room freezer overnight, thus saving the meat from spoiling before we made it home. The breakfast they offered the next morning was a nice surprise; scrambled and hard boiled eggs, bacon, toast, pancakes, muffins, pastries and fruit were all available. We didn't have a chance to use the pool or exercise room but other guests were definitely making use of these amenities. Although not a planned stop over, the staff in this hotel certainly helped make an overnight travel delay far more pleasurable and less of a headache! We are very grateful for the high level of customer service they provided.

A convenient, clean and quiet place to stay if you are shopping at the Cookstown outlet stores. The room was had a fridge and microwave. It was cool and comfortable. We had a ground floor room as we were travelling with a small dog. Recommended for those travelling with their pet.
