We stayed here for two nights during a baseball tournament. It's a nice, clean place. Breakfast wasn't so good though. Pool and hot tub area was great for the kids. We slept well on the comfy beds.It's also a convenient spot.

Staying in town overnight on business. Rates were reasonable even during Stratford festival season. The layout is a little odd - it seems they have added building upon building but the room was clean, comfortable and quiet. Front desk staff were nice and complimentary breakfast was mediocre.

Spacious room for four sisters. Clean. Quiet. Breakfast was good, making the fairly expensive room rate bearable. Check in was fine. No complaints. Best thing was the great service from the cab company, taking 6 of us to Festival Theatre and back in a timely and very reasonable rate!!

Spent the night here as we have done for the last 10 years. The motel is in need of refreshing. The bathrooms need updating. There were 3 of us and spent 168 dollars with breakfast included. The price has gone up and the breakfast is a buffet , but not the best. There are no dinners there, also the waterfall... More

The rooms are ok. They look like they have recently been redecorated but are dark. The bathrooms need redoing. Clean and inexpensive . Includes a good breakfast. Pleasant wait staff in dining area. All for $99. The room we had were 2 double beds. I believe king are available. Trim on outdoor windows need replacing. The paint cover-up doesn't cut... More

The staff at the Festival Inn were quite pleasant, even allowing for a check-in that was about 3 hours early without any fuss. The restaurant looked fairly quiet but there were plenty of options within walking distance, even being on a main highway through town. We were part of a hockey tournament group, so our experience might be different than... More

Pretty average motel-style accommodation. Room was clean and comfortable, and the location is convenient. We got this as part of a Stratford Theatre package. The meal in the inn's restaurant was a bit disappointing. Not that it was bad, but the decor was very basic and the food was nothing special.

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and it is just bearable. The rooms were supposedly renovated however, there were stains on the bedspreads, the bathrooms are in need of updating and the heating is very hard to control ( it was either very hot or very cold). The showers are terrible with little pressure to wash hair. This... More

This hotel feels like one I would have stayed in as a child. This hotel is NOT "chic" or modern in any way. It IS however, very well kept and in immaculate condition. Most of the staff were quite friendly and helpful. The food is fine..... I wouldn't eat there if I lived in Stratford, but as a hotel guest... More

Travelled to Stratford with another couple for the world renown Stratford Festival Theater. Got 2 adjoining rooms. Spotless rooms. Well appointed. Good furnishings. Great beds and linens. Food in dining room was inexpensive and very good. Service throughout was excellent. We really loved the indoor pool, sauna and hot tub and were again spotless. Very quiet probably because it was...
