“Pleasant and cheap”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2013

This was our first stay at this motel, one night in July 2013.
Other reviews had quelled my fears about booking an unknown, and inexpensive, accommodation. I learned last year that booking expensive is not necessarily a great thing!
So - place is old/traditional motel in appearance from the outside, but the grounds are lovely and the pool/patio (which we did not, sadly, get to use this time) looks inviting. The room (William, 16) was great and I was astonished about the quality and cleanliness considering the price we were paying. Spacious, two queen beds, two couches, a desk, a table and a refridgerator ...flat screen TV..and perfect little vanity sink area outside the shower/toilet. I know you're thinking big deal, but the point is, it is a great deal. Continental breakfast is also very good, is included in the price and in a cheerful room off the main office area. Didn't really get the warm fuzzies from the staff, but I suppose that would be expected on a longer stay.

3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 September 2012

Booked a one night stay here based on the excellent reviews I read. The motel has been decently updated and was clean and comfortable but I felt the customer-service was sadly lacking. Upon check-in I was given the key to our room and asked to sign the contract but the woman didn't welcome us and didn't provide any additional information like when the pool was open, if breakfast was included or not and where it would be, if we needed a dinner recommendation, etc. There were binders in the room which included this type of information but the pages were from 2007 so the information was completely outdated and not reliable. It's great info to include but ensure it is kept up-to-date. If I was to go back to Stratford, I'd likely book elsewhere.

This was not our first stay at the As You Like It Motel and it will definitely not be our last. The motel is just a few minutes' drive from the theatres and downtown, the rooms are comfy and clean, have wireless internet access and there is even a small pool area to relax. The tone that the owners set is carrying over to the guests, so the atmosphere is always very friendly.

This is a great value motel, conveniently located slightly outside the downtown. Our booking through the festival provided a modest, clean motel with AC and comfortable bed and complete bathroom. Breakfast was also modest, but better than many chain motels. This is not luxury, but an older, traditional that can be recommended for it value and friendly management.

Stay here on July 31 - August 1, Room, Silvius, was very large and clean. Staff was very friendly and courteous.

The hotel was 5 minute drive from the Stratford Festival Theatre.

We will DEFINITELY stay here again!

I had never stayed at a motel before so I was a little apprehensive. I read the reviews before going and felt a little better. When my two kids,mom and I got to the motel, we were pleasantly surprised. From the outside, it has that old English inn feel. Inside was clean, very clean. We got the two bedroom suite and the linens were fresh and clean. The bathroom was a nice size. Everything was quite nice. The second room doesn't have it's own AC unit so it did get a little hot and there is not T.V. in the second room. Small matters. The pool was lovely; the kids had a good swim. It is close to the Stratford festival which is what we went for. Breakfast was good. Great staff, great hotel, good price. Will definitely stay there again. By the way, each room is named after a Shakespearean character. We got Orlando. Love it!

Nice clean & comfortable place, which we also found conveniently located. Included in the rate was a simple but nice breakfast. The pool is shallow but we enjoyed it very much, as it had a nice sitting area around the pool. Beds were nice and I would certainly go back.
