Travelling with a friend, we spent the first night of our three in Stratford at the Stone Maiden Inn. Right from the start, it was disappointing. The parking space was extremely cramped, so my friend stopped in the driveway for us to unload our bags near the entrance. I entered as she lugged a suitcase up the walk. When the owner finally appeared, he yelled at my friend to move her car so others could enter the driveway--sort of moot, since there was no parking space. The rather dour owner then left us, two women in their 60s, to get our bags up three flights of steep stairs to our room. The room was not only extremely small, it was dirty, including a pile of perhaps 100 or more bugs under the wooden chair which is described on the website as "a small sitting area." There was literally not enough floorspace in the room to set up the suitcase valet. The owner removed the bugs, but offered no apology. The window air conditioner was filthy. We had breakfast the next morning, but then, with trepidation, approached the owner and told him we could not stay the additional two nights because of asthma and allergy problems we were experiencing owing to the poor housekeeping. The best I can say about this stay was (1) the breakfast was very nice, and (2) he let us move out without an argument about a refund. We found a terrific place to stay in the middle of town that was five times the size, with kitchenette, and clean, at a lower price.
