Verified Reviews of Hotel Stratford

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Decent Enough"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
I stayed with my wife and kid for five days and found it to be decent. Pros: The location is very nice and a big advantage for those who need public transportation. There are many shopping centers and restaurants nearby within a five minute walking distance. The room itself is spacious and quiet. Clean bathroom, table, chair, bed and mattress. The staff was also courteous and helpful. One of the personnel even let me keep the baby stroller in the computer room downstairs as there is no elevator to the 2nd floor. Nice free breakfast too. Cons: Hard water and it would not leather with soap. I would recommend providing body wash. The carpet in the room was dirty and sticky on bare feet. I had to always keep my socks on. Another downside is no elevator and the air conditioner worked funny. Sometimes it would not cool down even when I set the temp to 65. Overall, a charge of $123/night seemed to be more than its worth. I think $100/day would have been better. Thanks.
