Reviewed 2 January 2014

We recently stayed here for a hockey tournament. Excellent value (we paid $99/night)- quite a large sprawling hotel, but you can get a parking spot close to your room (helpful with hockey bags!). Great pool- they didn't bug the kids when they were a bit loud. Nice hot tub also. Very close to all the arenas in town and Walmart/Target, etc if you need anything.
A bit dated looking, but no complaints- nice to have a refrigerator in the room.

Large property. Old but so. We rooms have been renovated. Good for our hockey team as our rooms were far from the lobby (a maze of hallways) so we could gather in the evening without disturbing others. Front the desk young woman very cordial to us and our kids. Pool area very nice! Housekeeping could sharpen up a bit. Nice but needed to vacuum and clean bathroom better. Close proximity to arenas, downtown and restaurants. Small mall across the street... Tim's, Lcbo Walmart... All nearby. Nothing further than 8 minutes away.

This place is deceiving as it does not look as big as it is when you pull in but there are annexes at they back of the property that house a lot of rooms and they are all connected to the main building: You don't need to worry about the weather when you head out to an evening of fine dining and entertainment.
The room we had was a two-person jacuzzi suite and it was huge. It was clean and comfortable and amazingly quiet despite the fact that there were several hockey teams staying there.
The front desk check-in staff were friendly and efficient and the hotel is located on the outskirts of Stratford but very close to malls, restaurants and liquor stores. There is a restaurant on site.

We always stay here for our annual trip to Stratford. Comfotable large rooms. The hotel staff is great and friendly. The restaurant is good, moderately priced with lots of specials. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are all good. The bar stays open so you can have a drink after the last show of the day.

Room Tip: Many rooms that are on the first floor. There is usually room to park near your room

Very helpful and accomodating; they only had rooms far removed from the lobby and on learning that my daughter needs braces on her legs to walk, offered a wheelchair for her use, which they put in our room on arrival. Unfortunately breakfast isn't a buffet or free with the rooms like it was when I'd stayed there a few times in the past, but it was still delicious...however, be careful not to go to close to when breakfast ends or the cook gets mad! (at least, that's what our scared looking waitress said :)) Good sized rooms - big enough for a rollaway bed with no problem. Clean and comfortable. Driving distance from theaters, but free parking. My choice of accomodation when I come to Stratford.

We go to Stratford every year. This is our favorite hotel. Service is always good, rooms are clean and the dinning room is convenient for breakfast. Being able to park close to the door is always a plus. Love the updated decor. Large rooms.
