This place has an 'old school' road motel feel, and the rooms feel a little out-dated... But they are simple, clean, and neat. Warm reception and friendly service. Wifi works. My tv was old and small, but I survived. 'Breakfast' of muffins & coffee is modest, but gets the day started adequately. I would stay here again.

We stayed based on TA reviews. The motel is located a few minutes drive from downtown. Our room was small but clean and well maintained. The bath arrangement isn't the greatest with the toilet located next to the bathroom door. The owner (I think) was very helpful both before and during our stay. This was our first trip to the...

The bed and breakfast that we hoped to use was booked! As I reviewed the many other possibilities I came across the Swan Motel, located a couple of miles down the road from the Avon Theater. The price was very reasonable, the reviews were excellent, so we decided to forgo the breakfasts that we loved and see what three nights... More

I love the Swan and have been staying there for over 30 years! Excellent location near downtown and the four Stratford Festival theatres. Service is excellent and the morning Shakespeare discussions are amazing! A wonderful value!

Our party of 6 booked into The Swan Motel and had a really enjoyable stay. The rooms were good and the service was super. Colleen was very welcoming and gave us lots of information on the local area and theatre festival. Coffee and tasty muffins every morning was a nice touch, Reasonably priced. Highly recommend.

A clean room, comfortably furnished and congenial management. Reasonably priced and just a short drive from the theatre district. I'd say if you're looking for a perfect, no fuss no muss place to hang your hat for a night or two then look no further!

We booked the Swan Motel based on its first-place rating on TA. We were a little apprehensive upon pulling into the front entry and seeing a 50s-style L-shaped traditional "motel". But after getting the key to our room we were pleasantly surprised. The furniture and decor is definitely retro, but everything worked, and everything was immaculately clean. Add in super... More

The Swan Motel is a lovely place to unwind and only two miles from downtown Stratford. The rooms are clean and nicely done. Daily cleaning ensures clean towels and a sense of order. The gardens are beautiful and well maintained with several seating arrangements throughout, each situated to allow some privacy. The setting encourages lingering over morning tea, reading a... More

We quickly agreed that we will be returning to the Swan Motel for our annual visit to Stratford. The room was very clean and well maintained, but equally important, it was quiet. As gardeners, the well groomed property was especially inviting to us. Next year we'll take advantage of the pool.
