I've visited Stratford more than 30 times, and have usually stayed at the Festival Inn. My last stay was the weekend of October 5, 2002. I've stayed in the main building, the new annex, and the older motel unit. While I prefer the rooms in the annex and the main building, and have had problems with the older air conditioning unit in the motel unit, I've always enjoyed my stay. The staff is extremely friendly and accomodating. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The decor is not exceptional, but I don't go to Stratford to stare at the hotel walls. I've found the staff in the restaurant to be very patient and helpful with special orders. I have always eaten breakfast there. I usually have dinner in one of the many wonderful restaurants in Stratford--just because I like eating in different places-no reflection on the restaurant. I'm planning to go back to Stratford 3 times this year, and will stay at the Festival Inn.
