This is a very basic, old fashioned motel on a busy street...but it is just fine for a stay when doing a lot of activities in Stratford. Small bathroom and small floor space in the room...but I was out to the theater, out for meals, out for shopping so what did I need with a big room. This place was... More

Located only several blocks from the theatre, it is a great little motel to stay in, and there are restaurants just across the street. Very moderately priced, it had all the basics, plus a newly remodeled shower, in room wifi sensor and a small refrigerator. Linens were fine and the room was immaculate. I do recommend this motel as an... More

This is a small motel. price was right as we were just wanting a room to sleep. Bed was comfortable, plenty of hot water. Some toiletries. Room and bathroom were very clean. The grounds are very attractive if you would like to sit outside by the Zen Fountain or at one of the private locations for just 2. More so,... More

I booked this motel online through expedia and got a room for under 100.00. considering most of the hotels were in the 150.00+ range for this theatre town.This was a no frills motel. I lived in the Stratford area 16 years ago and this motel was not a nice place to stay. It has been cleaned up and would recommend.... More

We stayed there for two nights in September while attending the Shakespeare Festival, and the staff was just wonderful; polite, hospitable and helpful. It's a classic old school motel and is somewhat charming, but the rooms were very dusty and the air conditioning filters definitely needed to be changed. Also the bathrooms are relatively small, as in train compartment small.

You get what you pay for. It's one of the most economical places to stay in Stratford, it's not in a bad location, but there's a reason why it's so budget-friendly. I had a very small room that was pretty well packed with furniture as well as an alarmingly noisy refrigerator. The smallest bathroom I've ever seen (34" wide, yep... More

I made an online reservation today but cancelled a few hours later when a friend told me he had heard bad things about this place. When I cancelled I was informed that the hotel would charge me $115 in cancellation fees. I called Expedia and they told me it had nothing to do with them. When I called the motel... More

This is close to town, but very simple and overpriced compared to other options in town. You can get better service - and likely with breakfast! - for the same price. We may have been the only guests when we stayed. It is close to downtown with lots of parking. Fast food outlets are nearby, which is good if you... More

We have stayed in the Noretta Motel for two nights in the middle of May. No surprises. This is just a normal small and not expensive motel. The location is good, just at Ontario street, which is the main street of Stratford. The Festival theatre is in a walking distance, about half kilometer from the motel. The centre of the... More

Outdated décor, and bed linens, scuff marks on pillows, dead earwig on floor, a vacuum would have been useful, long black hair on bed sheets. Would have complained, but so tired chose to sleep in my track pants and shirt instead. On a positive note, front desk staff very friendly on check in. Note much else positive to say. Would... More
