Had an excellent few nights here with no problems by my standards. Slept peacefully and enjoyed a serene atmosphere surrounding the hotel. Better than the past few places I have stayed. Highly recommended to all!

The Stratford Motor Inn is a nice place to stay except for the details. The sheets are very coarse feeling on the skin. There is building material lying around. The coffee was like sludge. Most of these complaints could be easily taken care of. How much do decent sheets cost anyway?

Great stay! Haven't been back at the Stratford for a few months because of previously poor management, but the new management is excellent! Friendly manager and relaxing atmosphere. Rooms are comfy and clean. Will definitely come back!

Came to Ellijay for a relaxing weekend. Expect a 50 year old motel, the price should be 29.95 ,and have low expectations. The manager didn't speak fluent english and was rude. The pictures on the website are NOT the rooms at this location. Bathrooms are extra small and extremely dated. This hotel has had no updating or repairs in the... More

Came to Ellijay for a business trip. This hotel was the cheapest...and I am cheap, so I chose it. :p great service. Clean rooms. Keep in mind that I am not hard to please, but I think it's a great place for the rate. :)

We have been staying at the Stratford at least every other month for the past 2 years and have always had good experiences until this last visit. They have been going down for a while now. They are trying to do some updating ( painting ), but they have a lot of other problems that paint won't fix. Some of... More

We opted for this inexpensive choice on a recent trip to seek out local properties. I was impressed by its cleanliness but it does need some updating & minor repairs. The towel bar in the bathroom was broken off. But clean comes first & we were comfortable especially after we asked for extra pillows. I always pack pillow protectors when... More

I first stayed here in oct. '04 after stopping from a ten hour drive. I was greeted like I was family. Something that I truly needed at that time in my life. I ended up feeling like I was more welcome here than any place I'd ever been. After a three week stay, I moved to Ellijay. I moved to... More
