“Simply a great family run motel at a reasonable price.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2011

The area is bucolic, the grounds lovely, the pool pleasant, and the friendly service genuine. This is a motel, not a resort, but if you're looking for a comfortably place to stay while enjoying Stratford you really should consider this location.

The Suburban Motel has a few things going for it that elevate it above the typical motel: First, it is quiet. Second, it is a family run operation, and the attention to detail and the friendliness of the owners is obvious. Third, the grounds are beautifully landscaped, and are a nice place to hang out especially on a warm summer's day. Fourth, the rooms are bright and clean, and the back windows have charming views of farmer's fields. And finally, the price is right. This place has so much better value than anything else I have tried out in the Stratford area.

My mother and I stayed at the Suburban Motel for 2 nights at the beginning of August. I choose this motel because of the reviews on Trip Advisor. It's been a while since I've stayed in a motel however I was pleasantly surprised with our room. Super comfy beds, a shower with tremendous water pressure, excellent WIFI, and clean, clean, clean. A plus for us was the screened windows that we were able to open for a nice breeze at night.

The location was perfect - just a quick 3-5 minute drive down the street and you were downtown.

You can tell that the owners truly care about their establishment and I would recommend the Suburban to anyone who asks where to stay when visiting Stratford.

My wife and I visit Stratford every other year for a week of plays. This year, as usual, we spent a relaxing stay at the Suburban Motel (we've tried other hotels in town). The location, cleanliness and price can't be beat. One great advantage is that you can park right in front of your room. The rooms have AC, which work very well, and cross ventilation which is a huge plus (we only used the AC two nights). They also have new TV's with cable and WiFi. The country setting is a big plus (with excellent road for walking immediately adjacent to the motel).

My wife, our daughter and I have been going to Stratford on family visits for about 20 years. We always stayed at the main hotels, usually on Ontario Street. About five years ago, we realized that the cost of rooms at these hotels had become somewhat prohibitive, especially after the Festival began in early spring. Until the end of March or so, we could get rooms for about $100 a night, but after the Festival began usually in April, those rooms cost somewhere around $160. That was just too expensive for us. So we decided to try and find another place that was more cost-efficient during Festival time and that met our standards in terms of cleanliness, comfort, etc.

One of the first places that we found was the Suburban Motel, which is just about one km. east of Stratford on Highway 8. The most that we have ever paid for a room at the Suburban, even in the middle of the summer, has been $109. The rooms at the Suburban are modern, clean and comfortable and of a quality that one expects to find at a hotel, not a motel. The owners of the Suburban, Mike and Mandy, are friendly and helpful. We recently discovered the outdoor pool, which is great place for a refreshing swim on a warm day. The Suburban also has a tennis court which has just been resurfaced.

We especially enjoy the quiet atmosphere at the Suburban Motel – a sharp contrast to the noise and bustle of Ontario Street – and try and spend at least one restful afternoon there during each visit to Stratford. And we now stay at the Suburban Motel whenever we visit Stratford.

The Suburban Motel is a family run business just outside of Stratford. The rooms are clean and nicely decorated. If you like fresh air, you can open the windows and enjoy a cross breeze. For those who like to swim or sit out there is a pool. The owners are helpful and will help you get the most out of Statford.

Room Tip: If you are an AAA or CAA member discounts are given.

Nothing fancy but comfortable. Outdoor pool area was a very nice retreat on a hot day. Air conditioned rooms with internet access. Only turn off was the "grey' bottom in the bathtub/shower- obviously cleaned but still needs some heavy scrubbing and CLR.

Room Tip: We had room 120 with king size bed and room 119 with two double beds, both across parking lot from p...
