We've stayed at the Festival Inn several times over the years we've been coming for the Festival. We booked a room for a last-minute trip this month after several of our preferred choices were booked. Our room was in the main building and while it was clean and contained all of the necessary amenities (TV, refrigerator, coffee maker) it was...

Several decades ago this was 'the' place or perhaps the only place to stay in town. Now, sadly it can be cast in a movie as the dim, rundown highway motel. Threadbare towels and stained linen add to the theme. One highlight was the breakfast that was hearty and well-prepared. However, make sure you have visited the washroom before entering...

2 beds in bedroom and 2 sofa beds in 2nd room. Up to 8 would fit if you're all friendly. Indoor pool is a hit with kids. Rooms are a bit worn but staff are friendly and accommodating. Did not try food in their restaurant.

I stayed at the Festival Inn every summer many years ago and loved it. I recently went back and was terribly disappointed. The room itself was large and attractive, but the towels were threadbare and frayed and the A/C sounded as if there was a tractor running through the room all night. I also asked for an extra hour before...

I've stayed at the hotel/motel many times over the last 25 years. It was pretty good but Its really gone down-hill. The rooms are ok. Cleanliness a little less so. Our room on our second day literally never got made up. The beds were pulled together - not tucked in made. The lighting in the bathroom was one yellowing fluorescent...

This hotel is OK. Room is large but somewhat dated. But its Stratford and you will be at the Theatre all day so no need to worry about the room. As noted in other reviews there is no WiFi in the rooms (this may not apply to all the rooms.) There is an Ethernet connector in the room but who...

The hotel is not in the heart of Stratford - so you won't be walking to your show. Area has chain restaurants and Target etc. You miss the "quaintness" of downtown Stratford. The room was clean and very large. The television was on the far side of the room and looked really small because of the distance from the bed...

I have stayed at this hotel several times and have always founding to be very clean and the staff very helpful. It is about a five minute drive to the Festival Theatre and downtown Stratford. I would recommend highly, and will definitely stay again.

Great place to stay while visiting Stratford. Good Value hotel, very clean and quaint. Close to many restaurants, and close to downtown. Our room was in the annex, which looked fairly new and renovated. Would highly recommend.

The university I attended in Michigan sends their Honors program students to Stratford for free to attend the Shakespeare plays once a year. I stayed here in 2009 and in 2010. The rooms were nice and clean with lovely furnishings. The breakfast was good. This hotel is not right in the heart of Stratford, but it is probably more affordable...
