Majer's Motel
Ranked #12 of 18 Hotels in Stratford
Reviewed May 17, 2009

I stayed at Majer's Motel in Stratford Ontario with six of my friends for one night, and even the one night was pretty poor. The carpeting was stained, the bathroom floor dirty, towels were awful, the rooms all smelled musty, the door locks were very old and flimsy, it smelled like someone had been smoking in the rooms even though they were shown as no smoking on the doors. The motel is overdue for a total overhaul! It was so bad that none of us even took a shower in the rooms. The rooms promised hair dryers, but there were none to be found. There was coffee available, but the coffee room and lobby also smelled of old cooking food.

On the plus side, the bedding was clean, and my mattress appeared to be fairly new. I took the extra step to check the mattress in light of the recurrence of bed bugs, and found it to be rather new and clean. The location is good if you are going to Stratford to shop and see a play... it's a short drive to the theatres and restaurants and shops. It was also fairly quiet, but the walls are very thin. Also, some of the people occupying the rooms are rather unsavory looking.

I will NEVER stay here again, and would not recommend this place to anyone visiting Stratford.

Stayed one night at this motel. It is situated on the outskirts of the pretty town of Stratford. Set off the main road with farming land at the rear. Heard the train twice before we went to sleep but not through the night.

Room very spacious with a fridge and good size bathroom which the owners have tried to up date. Sink still looks old. Shower was excellent and the towels soft and newish. Some of the furnishings were old and need replacing, but the bed and linen were fresh and clean and we got a good nights sleep.

We only met one member of staff who was pleasant and helpful. In the grounds there is a garden and swimming pool, but we had no time to use these. You need a car to drive into town, however there are eateries within walking distance (although quite a busy road) including a Chinese restaurant next door.

We paid $83.25 inc. taxes, so for the money we thought it was good value compared to others in the locality. There is a Tim Hortons eatery for breakfast if you are on a budget near by.

I would stay again for a few nights, but it is not the type of place to stay for a week or more in my opinion.
