We spent one night at the motel and found it very much worth the little money it costs. No luxuries, but all you need for a short stay. Clean and quiet. NOt within a walking distance of downtown Stratford, but hey - you pay what you get, and here you get a little extra.

Don't even book this place! if you do by chance have to cancel they will charge your credit card anyway around $30.00 per room.I have never heard of a cancellation policy by anyplace that I have booked and I travel quite often expecially for work, the bigger nicer places don't charge if you cancel in advance. If this is their... More

Do you want to ruin your trip and make your wife to hate you ? Check into the Noretta,she will. It stinks,the rugs are grimy, knobs were missing off the ancient TV, dirty windows, and has funky bed linens. The bathroom is so tiny you can hardly turn around in it, the sink literally protrudes into the shower. They use... More

For $50 I wouldn't complain, but we paid over $120 for a tiny room with 2 queen beds. Refrigerator, but no coffee maker. Good shower, but no tub. Maintenance problems too numerous to list, starting with doors that squeak, but don't close properly. One tiny lamp for reading, otherwise only overhead light fixtures that contain dead bugs. 15 minute walk... More

My husband, younger sister and I spent three nights at the Noretta, July 12-15, 2013. It was pleasant. Basic and simple but clean. The beds were very comfy and clean and the air conditioning unit worked well which was a plus because it was very warm. It was within walking distance to the downtown,and theaters. It was very quiet and... More

I stayed in the Noretta Motel and felt quite comfortable. The room was small but complete, and the location is excellent. Parking is free. I had no problems. I think it was in July 2011. It appeared to be on the upswing, with fresh paint and linens.

There seem to be a lot of negative reviews. I don't know if the owners have changed or pulled up their socks or what - but we stayed 2 nights and had no problems. The rooms are small as are the bathrooms, but this is a $75 motel people! They were painting the outside while we were there and the... More

Stratford, Ontario is the town where the culturally minded folks flock to in the summer months for the Shakespeare Festival...so you wouldn't expect crummy motels in a place like this. At least I didn't. Now, maybe it was the off-season, so they had to fill their rooms with the help of the Ontario welfare system - that's where the problems... More

We stayed at the Noretta Motel at 691 Ontario Street in Stratford on Aug 15th 2012 because it was the last room in town and we were directed there by ONSTAR. What a nightmare . The room was 107.35 for the night and once we opened the door we were shocked. The carpet enetring was covered in dirt to the... More

I will admit that this hotel is a little dirty and needs some renovations. Towels had stains on them, found a spider in the shower, doors were hard to close, bathroom shelf was about to fall, bathtub was slippery, and the air conditioner didn't work too well. But, I have to say that given you are only paying $70 a... More
