The young man on reception was very helpful. The bed was comfortable.
The air conditioning had no knobs to adjust the temperature I had to unplug it, so it was on or off. The bathroom badly needed updating old fixtures and fittings. The TV remote did not work the night reception said he would get me one he never did even though I did remind him.
the People and Staff was great and the location was excellent close to everything.
the place needs money spent on it to fix it up as it is in bad need or repairs
Nothing very dirty
Requested face clothes and didn't get any. No bathtub unless you're only 3 feet tall. Stood at the breakfast room door until 6 15 A. M.and then left because the door still wasn't open and the customer service guy was inside. I can continue but I think you're getting my message... I will not be back!!!
Very old Bed was broken Air conditionner setting didnt work, so you had to either plug it or unplug it when it got too cold
area, price, cleanness. customer service of Mr. Purav was excellent
some times they did not put towels and u should ask, blanket and sheet has hole( with cigarette butt! when arrive but Purav gave us very fast good one. breakfast could be a little better. i.e. with egg, banana, and need to put Micro in breakfast table.
Good staff and very convenient location
Cigarette smoke every where.me and my partner fell sick there after.
The shower curtain wasn't long enough to reach the tub & because the floor is so slanted, the shower water runs out of bathroom & then under the carpet. The carpet was soaked from the people that stayed the night before. The sheets had stains on them but they were washed. The floor is so sloped, the building is probably not structerly sound. People were also just sitting in the parking spots drinking.
The first room that we were put into had plaster falling from the ceiling. The bathroom was dirty and had spiders and webs in the corners. It was a very disgusting room and we would never stay there again.
It was just a few blocks away from "five points" downtown Barrie.
* Credit card machine broken, has to look for an ATM machine * Rooms old and smell like humidity * Needs maintenance desperately * Stairs broken * Roof with humidity marks * Basic cable with bad reception * Room phone broken * Fridge broken * Microwave broken * A/C broken * WiFi disconnecting every 5 minutes * Breakfast only from 6am to 9am * No muffins @ breakfast * Coffee diluted * Juices expired * Bad housekeeping, have to ask for towels & shampoo twice * Sheets from smoking room * Police cars all the time * Guesses in first floor destroyed their room
We had to ask to be moved 4 times in one night because it was dirty and it was not what we had booked. Each room smelt like smoke despite booking a non smoking room. And there were stains and holes on the bed! It hobestly felt like we were staying at a crack house. Never again.
close to downtown food and bars
there was no pillows, toilet paper or ice bucket in the room had to go to front desk and ask them for it all and there was and drawer full of old rotten canned goods and to top it off a pregnant girl just sitting out side our room most of the night....well laying on our steps and even asked me for a smoke... ur prego u shouldn't be smoking omg
The hotel was filthy!!!! They brought us to another room that was just as filthy. Disgusting when we asked for our money back the guy at the front desk bagged us to stay because he said he was going to get fired. He couldn't figure out how to do our refund we left anyway we would not sleep at that hotel. Contacted the Howard Johnson later that night and they gave us all our money back would not ever recommend that hotel to anyone.
Paid cash and asked for proper receipt to show that I paid... did not get one... asked 3 times Gross breakfast No hot water No wakeup call Worst place that I have ever stayed in
The hotel was close to nightlife.
Room smelled, a/c did not work, room was in a state of disrepair (holes in walls and bathroom door didn't close). Couldn't find staff in the morning to check out.
This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. Our room had dirty towels when we arrived. It was not clean. Very worn decor. My son and daughter in law also booked but cancelled their room as it had black mold on the wall growing through a picture.
The location was great
The wifi was inaccessible 95% of the time.
Bad Service. I checked online that there was availability, but we were nearby so I waited to check in at the motel. I walked in to reception, to be told there were no single rooms, only rooms with two beds which were more expensive. I mentioned I'd just seen online that there were rooms available. I was still told no, so I booked the single room online on my phone. Luckily I was given the advertised price, while still been told they had no single rooms. When I checked into the room, it was indeed a single. Very dishonest staff.
Layout of Hotel. Covenience of parking
Dirty, Broken window in bathroom(and we were on main level. Decided not to take a shower in morn (waited till home) no microwave or wifi like advertised. Complimentary breakfast was joke. Room smelled of tobacco when we arrived.
-after we got a second room we did not have a hairdryer -not enough towels -remote did not work -coffee maker did not work -light beside bed did not work -keys had to be reset several times -windows and doors did not close proper so you can smell the smoke from people outside -cables haning around everywhere -breakfast from 6-9 am on a weekend is not very accomodating for people who want to sleep in on a weekend
The noise the coldness of the room the rude neighbour that kept me up at night and they way the front desk clerk handled it, the lack of upgrades, old and stained conforter and sheets and the lack of them forgetting to clean my room so when i came back at night it was not cleaned at all, worst hotel stay of any hotel in my life.
beside a restaurant. Staff was pleasant unlike the manager.
The manager BJ? was not pleasant. It was supposed to be non smoking but had been smoked in. Mattress sagged in the middle.Would not recommend and would not return there
Price was good.
Online reservation was not forwarded to Inn location. Room was clean but well worn e.g. cigarette burns on the bathroom sink, room decor needs updating. Cold air came in under exterior door. Morning attendant was not friendly with customers when they used the breakfast facilities.
