I have stayed here before, and always had a good experience, however this time was different. It did not look as if the room had been cleaned properly. Around the sink had not been wiped, and I doubt if the sheets were changed as I found an earring in the bed. Someone needs to double check that the basics are... More

Andrea M, General Manager at BEST WESTERN PLUS The Arden Park Hotel, responded to this review

Dear freckletoad; I would like to sincerely apologize for the disappointing experience during your most recent visit. In looking further into this situation, it appears there was a guest who moved rooms previously and this room was not added onto the "to be cleaned" list, which leads to another guest being checked into a room that has not been inspected....

Typical chain hotel, clean and well maintained, no surprises. Great location if you are in Stratford for the festival. Within walking distance to the Festival Theatre. One disappointment, sat at the bar, one server walked in, got drinks and left, said nothing to me.....

We were headed for two presentation at Stratford's end of season plays when we found this location. Easy to find with an on property restaurant which was great after a long day's journey and a swimming right across from the elevator. Clean and comfortable rooms. No complimentary breakfast but delicious options. Parking was a bit of an issue as there... More

Great location, clean updated facilities, congenial, helpful staff, free parking, but disappointed that there is no breakfast included for $212.00 one-night charge as at other Best Western locations. Frustrated I was not able to use Air Miles points (couldn't wait on the phone for 2 days awaiting Air Miles service) but otherwise a very good stay.

This is the third time we have stayed at this hotel. It is newly renovated and just lovely. The food in the dining room is excellent and the Sunday brunch is one of the best! We've already booked for next year!

Stayed here prior to it becoming a Best Western. So glad to see it hasn't changed. Everything - rooms, staff, reasonably-priced breakfast, pool - are still wonderful. As there were three of us, we upgraded to a suite which was provided more room and privacy, well worth the extra $30 (we were only staying one night). It is a bit... More
