I am a long time member of Best Western and this is and has always been the only hotel I ever stay at. This hotel is the absolute worst condition of any I have stayed in.You took your employees' word that racism was used; when only using a swearword in a sentence and not swearing at him. Then he repeatedly said I swore at him which by no means was the case. I advised you to thoroughly watch your cameras as this conversation was recorded. I do have recordings. The fundamental point that people make stereotyping white people being racist is just as bad as stereotyping blacks, Asians, Muslims, immigrants and so on because whites have dominated America since its founding. The question they prefer to debate is whether so-called “reverse racism” is as harmful as the more conventional sort of racism—which, of course, it is not. But the defeat of one false equivalence does not sanctify the practice. Belittling, totalising comments about a people based on their skin colour is still a facile, unhelpfully tribal and meaninglessly antagonistic practice, even if a shameful history of systemic oppression does not lurk behind it. This front desk clerk right from the beginning had no interest in hearing my issues and was extremely impolite. It is definetly scary when ever there is a problem so many people threaten racism. Who was really being abused here. Firstly this hotel provided inadequate service right from the beginning. My husband and I were celebrating our wedding Anniversary; so we had booked the King Suite with a hot- tub. As much as we wanted that room ; extreme air freshener had been sprayed. Both of us have seasonal allergies. But this; well this was like no other Best Western hotel has ever smelled, so extremely breathtaking you could actually taste it. So we went to the front desk; discussed the problem and was given a room change to a lesser room, with no mention at first of a lower rate; as it would not be the room I requested. In the end we both suffered extreme headaches and reactions to the so called "Air Fresheners'' The pool- not in guest conditions. Extremely dirty and green. picture attached Bathroom door in the lobby. The door would not lock and toilet was plugged. Tried to go for a bath When trying to have a bath; ran and drained the tub 3 times. it was full of very green water and did get less green upon emptying and refilling. I showed the front desk within 2 minutes of the water in the tub. He offered a switch in room; but my husband was already in bed. But why on earth would tub water be so green? See attached pictures The patio door was in disrepair and very very dirty. - so hard to open and we struggled to get it open and closed. The in-room phone wasn't even hooked up. In the morning at 8 am.. a large truck was letting down a very noisy dumpster directly outside our door. See pictures Breakfast Was asked to leave by the manager who would not speak or listen to a valued customer. The manager came out at that time and refused to speak to me and refused to watch the video of how front desk treated me. There-fore was not able to have any breakfast. The water in the rooms was obviously not drinkable or bath-able. The front desk told me that they are having problems with their water softener. Humm most e more than that. So no water as vending machine was empty on all floors of water. Managed to get a ginger ale as a last attempt. I run my own Airbnb .. and almost all of my guests are of other ethical nationalities and I am the farthest thing from Racist. Is it so wrong to expect the same great service as I give. Do not go to this despicable hotel in Barrie Best Western Plus. It should not be classified a PLU according to Best Western standards.

Large room. Very clean. Mini fridge worked well. Good water pressure. Staff were very polite and accommodating. A short walk to downtown. The bad was comfortable. The hotel was quiet letting us get a great night sleep. It was easy to get to. We will definitely stay here next time we are in Barrie.

When you look at how this hotel advertises you get idea this is a higher end hotel with awesome ammenities and room service. All the ammenties mentioned they do provide but on a very low scale. They do NOT provide room service. We had to get our own supplies everyday (clean towels,coffee,toilet paper...) from front desk. We had to make our beds,toss our dirty towels in bin left in hallway,take out our garbage to dumpster out back. For the price we were charged I was expected more. Just call it a Best Western as there is no "Plus". I will say staff was very pleasant and not their fault hotel to cheap to provide basic room service. Should also mention no Plus with regards to the breakfast as it was borderline eatable. We did however go downstairs for coffee as it was way better than the coffee provided in room.

4 adults stayed in 1 room. Easy check-in. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Staff were very friendly and rooms were very clean. It was nice to get coffee or tea at any time. The included breakfast had lots of variety. Close to malls and restaurants. Lots of parking.

I stayed at this Best Western Plus location in Barrie while attending a conference. The double queen room on the ground floor was well laid out and very clean and fresh smelling. My room also came with a fridge and microwave and I utilized both during my stay. The mattress and pillow combination were exceptionally comfortable. The morning breakfast service was very good and the breakfast service staff super friendly AND they have a separate adjoining room with tables and chairs. I'd definately stay at this location again.

Expensive, not very clean, rude staff, online reservations not working and price when booking over the phone was almost double. The room smelled funny and they refused to make up the room after our first night.

We stopped in the hotel for 5 nights August 2022 to attend a music festival. We travelled as a couple in our 30s! Good Points 1) The beds are sooooo comfy!!!! I don’t think I have stayed in a hotel bed as comfy! Had fantastic night sleeps each night! 2) quiet - despite the hotel being full it was so quiet 3) Staff - so friendly! And always willing to help. 4) Clean - room and surrounding areas seemed clean and tidy! 5) Fridge - we were there when a heat wave hit so it was great to be able to store water in the fridge) Note - we also had a microwave and coffee machine but we did not use these much. Not so good Points 1) breakfast - it was not bad enough for us to mark it down! It does have a couple of hot food options which alternate each day so you get either - bacon and some sort of egg dish (omelette, scrambled eggs) or Sausage with the other egg dish. A couple of cereal options, fruit, bread for toasting. Despite myself and my partner having no problems with the breakfast we would have preferred a few more options - a bit more continental! But as I say it was not enough to put us off in anyway. We would most definitely consider this hotel again in future! Thank you!

Wonderful clean quiet hotel. Close to the highway and central to coffee shops, parks, restaurants, beach, gas station etc. Friendly front desk staff and good complimentary hot breakfast. During our stay we had bacon, waffles, hash brown, omelette and so much more. The kitchen staff was very pleasant and cheerful. They kept the area tidy and well stocked. The laundry room is 24 hours. Washer and Dyer accepts 2 loonies. Soap and fabric softener is available at the front desk for $1 each. Towels was delivered immediately when requested. Also the hotel offers unlimited complimentary coffee and tea in the lobby. Overall we had a fantastic time and would definitely return in the future. Thank you for a wonderful stay!

Second time we have used this hotel now when visiting this area. Good price compared to competitors within area, also good location just 1 minutes off 400. Only downside of location is that car is required to get to any nearby restaurants. Stayed for 4 nights (Mon to Fri) and was not disturbed once by any noise, despite hotel clearly being very busy. Breakfast is of decent standard, although getting the Waffle machine back running would be better than the heat your own waffles, they are currently offering. Otherwise, is is a good complimentary breakfast offering. Trying hard to be covid safe at breakfast also with gloves etc to use Room of good standard and well appointed, also numerous power outlets in all the right places. Only servicing room every 3 nights if you are staying long term, however they were happy to service if you requested before that. Will use again when in area.
