I liked the location.

Very Good8.0
Decent and reliable hotel, great staff!
Decent accommodation. The service was great! The room was cramped though and everything was very old for the amount of money you charge, which I assume is because of the location. Overall I would stay here again.

Hotel Stratford
Mediocre at best. For the price I have had much better rooms and service in same area. I mean, not even a plastic cup in the room to have a drink of water etc.

Just OK
Location is very good. Property is a bit worn. Room stuffy and cramped. No A/C. Some exposed wiring makes one wonder if this is a fire hazard. Staff gets job done but not what you would call friendly.
