“Would Recommend to Anyone!”
Reviewed August 11, 2011

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.

My husband and I stayed for 3 days at Suburban:
The room was spotless, and provided all necessary amenities from coffee maker, mini fridge, iron/ironing board…even pillow mints. Our room had a small deck overlooking a peaceful farmer’s field. We had no trouble using the wireless internet, an issue we have often ecountered at other establishments.
The pool was clean, spacious and nicely surrounded by trees and garden. We even did a take-out meal one night just so we could make use of the lovely garden gazebo.
Though situated outside of town, the location was fine. Stratford has loads of free parking so it wasn’t a big deal to drive 5 minutes into town.
While we had limited contact with the owners, the service was efficient and family-like. It was obvious that a lot of care has been invested in the motel.
Very minor concerns: our room had a mild musty odour, but with a front window and rear sliding door, the cross-breeze took care of that within a short time when returning to our room; and, as a light sleeper I did hear the VIA train blow the horn late at night and early in the morning, though I suspect that this would have happened at most of the other accommodations in the area as well.
The experience exceeded our expectations. Without question, we would stay again at Suburban Motel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a deck - not all rooms have them.

Family-owned motel. just outside Stratford. The couple who owns it are wonderful, friendly, helpful people. It has a good-sized outdoor pool and tennis courts, beautiful gardens, gazebo, and a gas BBQ. Rooms are average-sized, but well-equipped with fridge, coffee maker, plenty of towel, soap, shampoo, etc.. We have stayed here 3 times - twice for two nights and this latest for three. It is not a 5 star motel, but is reasonably priced and totally suitable for our needs. I would recommend it to anyone. They have a clientele who keeps coming back, so that speaks for itself. Bravo, Mindy and MIke! See you next time we're in Stratford for the plays!
