Checked in and left to go shopping. Came back to room tired and started to settle in only to find a pair of used womens underwear had been left on the footstool Complained to front desk and their first question was "Do you want us to remove them" NO i want a new room. They were good at getting us relocated to another room but it was after a long day already. Not the cleanest hotel i have been in for the money for sure. Getting back onto Hwy 400 is always a treat from this end of town as Barrie itself is not really set up to be driver friendly.
Check in staff and Peter on night staff were fantastic but their cleaning staff have ALOT to be desired. Temperature control is tough, the rooms were so hot we ended up running A/C on full on the 28th of December. Sons g/f would not walk in the hallway after running into an intoxicated guest wondering the hallways. Bathroom is dated and run down and the mattress has seen better days as it was very cupped to the middle. Pool looked good and we did not try the breakfast The one good thing about it was there was not a lot of hallway noise or outside noice. Lots of kids but none running the hallways which is great of the parents.
Not sure i would stay in this hotel again due to the cleanliness of it and we did end up with a lot of inconvenience to pay full rates
