A 15-minute walk from downtown Stratford, this former nursing school residence doesn't appear to have seen much change since it was built in 1969. Still, if you're just looking for a place to sleep, you can't beat the price. Rooms were small and a bit musty, but clean, and contained a bar fridge (empty) and a sink; bathrooms were shared and as one might expect in a university residence. A lounge contained some old furniture and a television, as well as a microwave; there is an outdoor pool, but it was not filled and one wonders if it ever is. The residence was surprisingly quiet despite thin doors, but would presumably not have been so if school groups had been passing through.
Breakfast is served in the hospital cafeteria (a short hike to another building) between the hours of 8:15 and 9:15 and includes a generous assortment of items; bagged breakfasts could be arranged in advance if the timing was inconvenient, and consisted of a can of juice, a fruit, a piece of cheese, and a muffin. Go for the cafeteria over the bag, if you can.
