I didn't like anything about this hotel. I took my family and we received the smallest room with a king size bed. No room to move. No amenities except a vending machine. They were fully housed. It was an inconvenience to have no laundry facilities for someone who is visiting from out of town. I felt as though front desk...

This is was a decent hotel. Amenities include a TV, free wi-fi, coffee pot, fridge, iron and blow dryer. The room was clean, there was plenty of parking. The bed was on the hard side but manageable. My room was on the 2nd floor and I didn't see an elevator so if stairs are an issue for you please check...

This hotel is a great value for the area and it is clean. The ladies at the front desk were very efficiency, kind and responsive to my needs. It's mostly a business traveler hotel, so people will be busy during the waking hours - no big deal. Thank you, Stratford!

Throw back to the old motel 6 with Wi Fi. Price worked in an overpriced market. Fridge, microwave, in room coffee and tea, and continental breakfast wth waffle maker. Room was clean and front desk very accommodating.

We stayed here one night because our kids were having a baby at Kaiser Permenente. It was about a 5 minute drive to the hospital, which was great. The reservation person was very accommodating on the phone and even changed the reservation when we had to delay our arrival by one day. Pros: The staff was awesome- very friendly and...

I really enjoyed the fact the rooms have a microwave and fridge . Breakfast was a plus and I enjoyed the friendly staff who made me feel welcome. My room was nicely updated with hardwood floors and nice comfy bed definitely will be back . Very convenient location with lots of dining selection. All around great choice to lodge.
