The room recently had been redecorated with tasteful furnishings and artwork. Plenty of lamps, the chair at desk had casters so easy to move about. New fridge and lots of storage. Could use a luggage rack for suitcase though. I guess they ran out of funds because the bathtub, sink and toilet were old, chipped, had rust and the sink... More

We were travelling in southwestern Ontario and decided to stay in Stratford for a night. We used to live in the region and we were familiar with Stratford and its variety of accommodation. My wife stayed there over 30 years ago. General. The hotel is reasonably comfortable. It is located at the eastern edge of Stratford, so anyone staying there... More

Staying in lovely Stratford Ontario. Picked this place, looked good on Google. Not so much in real life. WAY too much money for what you get. Staff were amazing, very friendly. I took my two year old son. We had fun in the pool. Room was good, but the location they gave us backed into a migration path for partiers,... More

The Stratford Inn in Stratford Canada has been completely remodeled It is very nice indeed. The rooms are big and clean and nicely secorated. Lobby is beautiful with shiny marble floors. Continental breakfast is included with room. There is plenty of parking.

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

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
