The inn is really a motel, and seems to be lost in a time warp from 1972. My first room spelled of cat urine, my second room of smoke. The bedding and carpet seemed dirty and old, the bathroom was original fixtures and not cleaned well. The a/c unit was not working properly with the knobs broken off. The gym...

We chose this hotel because it was the only hotel we could find in Stratford that allowed dogs and had vacancy for our dates. It was more than I wanted to spend: they charge $45 as a pet charge on top of the room charge, which I felt was a bit steep. It's a per-visit rather than per-night charge though,...

Let me preface by saying we've stayed here for our Stratford theater week since the early 1980's. We've seen it grow from a small motel outside of town to the large Inn it is today. Unfortunately, things are beginning to slide. Rooms are getting pretty worn and it's kinda dirty. They have also reduced the services and amenities quite a...

Staying at The Festival Inn is a bit like time traveling back to 60s. The rooms are clean (except for the bed spread) and large, but the furnishings are the day before yesterday. The staff is friendly and helpful. The free breakfast buffet is worth the price. You're much better off at Tim Horton's across the street. It's located on...

We attended a wedding held here in October and found it was a great choice. The ceremony, reception and pictures were all done here and they did a fantastic job. They banquet room was transformed into a classy and elegant place for the evening. The staff were very friendly as well. The rooms are spacious and the beds are comfortable....

We were wary to stay here after the mixed Trip Advisor reviews but were pleasantly surprised to find that our "motel" room - that is, our room in an elongated motel-like building behind the main building (you can park right in front of your room) - had been recently renovated to include a new Queen mattress, flat screen TV, fridge...

We used to stay here regularly and recently returned -- nothing much has changed except that the paint and furnishings are that much older and more tired. After a confused check-in experience, we went to our rooms to find that they were musty smelling and needed a good airing out. The bathroom fixtures look like they haven't been changed since...

Very underwhelmed by this "hotel". Stayed here for a wedding. It is more of a Motel, with many of the rooms exiting directly to a parking lot. The rooms were small and stank of cigarette smoke. And the walls were paper thin, which made it pretty uncomfortable when our neighbours returned home at 4 am. They offer a breakfast service...
