So we had tickets to see Chris De Burgh in concert at Casino Rama and I had enough points for a room at Best Western. After a bit of research we settled on this hotel on Hart Dr. in Barrie and I'm glad we did.
The hotel is just off Hwy 400 and set in a bit of an industrial area. But when you are there just for a night its no problem and was nice to be so close to the highway considering we had to get to and from Orillia for the concert.
On check in we got a very friendly greeting from the girl at the front desk and she knew right away that we were using our points to pay for the room. We were assigned a room on the 2nd floor and it was an end room so nice and quiet.
The room was nicely laid out, very clean and looked like it might have been remodeled in the last year or so. The bed was extremely comfortable (as my unforeseen afternoon nap can testify to) and the pillows and bedding were of good quality. Lots of channels to choose from on the tv plus the usual selection of coffee and tea making facilities. Bathroom was very clean and well laid out as well. Because it was an end room we actually had 2 windows in the room, one on what I would call the south wall and then a smaller window on the east wall so plenty of light when needed.
In the morning we headed downstairs where they had a pretty good hot and cold breakfast laid on. Very creamy scrambled eggs (that was a good thing), toast, bagels, muffins plus bacon etc. There were probably other things on offer but my brain and my hunger were focused on bacon and eggs and I did not go hungry. Plenty of seating as well in a side room they had opened up off the main food area.
All in all it was a nice one night stay and if we were to go to Orillia for a concert again or even just needed somewhere to stay in the Barrie area I wouldn't hesitate to choose this hotel. less
