The university I attended in Michigan sends their Honors program students to Stratford for free to attend the Shakespeare plays once a year. I stayed here in 2009 and in 2010. The rooms were nice and clean with lovely furnishings. The breakfast was good. This hotel is not right in the heart of Stratford, but it is probably more affordable... More

We recently stayed here for a hockey tournament. Excellent value (we paid $99/night)- quite a large sprawling hotel, but you can get a parking spot close to your room (helpful with hockey bags!). Great pool- they didn't bug the kids when they were a bit loud. Nice hot tub also. Very close to all the arenas in town and Walmart/Target,... More

Large property. Old but so. We rooms have been renovated. Good for our hockey team as our rooms were far from the lobby (a maze of hallways) so we could gather in the evening without disturbing others. Front the desk young woman very cordial to us and our kids. Pool area very nice! Housekeeping could sharpen up a bit. Nice... More

This place is deceiving as it does not look as big as it is when you pull in but there are annexes at they back of the property that house a lot of rooms and they are all connected to the main building: You don't need to worry about the weather when you head out to an evening of fine... More

We always stay here for our annual trip to Stratford. Comfotable large rooms. The hotel staff is great and friendly. The restaurant is good, moderately priced with lots of specials. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all good. The bar stays open so you can have a drink after the last show of the day.

Very helpful and accomodating; they only had rooms far removed from the lobby and on learning that my daughter needs braces on her legs to walk, offered a wheelchair for her use, which they put in our room on arrival. Unfortunately breakfast isn't a buffet or free with the rooms like it was when I'd stayed there a few times... More

We go to Stratford every year. This is our favorite hotel. Service is always good, rooms are clean and the dinning room is convenient for breakfast. Being able to park close to the door is always a plus. Love the updated decor. Large rooms.

Ah Tripadvisor.... I am a long-time reader, and occasional contributor, and find the reviews highly useful for trip planning. But I've learned to take many of the reviews, particularly some of the negative ones, with a grain of salt. Yes the Arden Park is newer than the Festival Inn. Most of the buildings on the property of the Festival Inn... More

We stayed at this motel on Aug 10th 2013. It was a very expensive stay and the accomodations were meager at best. Two double beads instead of queen beds in the room. The beds were hard and not very comfortable. The rooms were clean but other than that there was nothing that would justify the $159.00 per night fee.
