Stay Inn Hotel Manchester

Recent guest reviews

Attending a gig in Manchester, we decided to stay at this hotel and honestly I cannot fault it. The outside is a little rundown but inside is a whole new story. The reception is very nice and staff are all extremely welcoming and friendly. The rooms are also very very modern and very lovely. Facilities you would need are all provided and from the rooms there is nothing missing I would complain about. It is clean and very tidy. The heaters took long to warm up which isn't the biggest of issues and the only one I can fault. In a very good location, only a 10 minute walk from Manchester arena and 15 from the city center, I would 100% stay in this hotel again and look forward to my next stay.

We stayed here in the beginning of December mid week for a works Xmas do in town. Check in is 3pm, but we arrived pretty early, about 1130. Our room wasn't ready but they let us park on the car park, which was really helpful (and free) and we just checked in at the end of the night... Room was basic, but clean and just right for a base. We didn't experience any of the food or dining area so can't comment on that. Really good location for town, walkable distance, and the free parking is a huge advantage.

We were staying here for 3 nights and all I can say is it's the closest to faulty tower's I have ever witnessed The place is clean but I had terrible trouble with one staff member in particular and I have already advised my friends to stay clear of this horrible person and hotel

Stayed here whilst seeing a band at the arena, it’s perfect for that as it only takes 10 minutes to walk it so you don’t have to waste money on taxis! The man at the desk was really nice and had a laugh with us when we arrived and gave us all of the info that we needed about the hotel and how to get back in when we were going out and wished us a nice stay which was a good start.. But we was quite shocked to find how small the room and the bathroom is considering how much we had paid for it. Also I agree with other people’s reviews in regards to the breakfast, it is not a very good portion for the £8.99 charge. Would recommend going elsewhere for breakfast if possible. Overall, I would say this hotel is suitable if you want somewhere nearby the arena/city.

If I had not had to stay here due to an emergency in Manchester I would not of if I had know how bad it would have been. Loads of building work being done to this hotel, so very messy throughout, staff were very lack lustre with no sense of enthusiasm for the job. Room was basic, the shower leaked all over the floor and the room I had was on the busy road side so hardly slept due to the constant noise all night. Couldn't get out of here quick enough in the morning but had to wait for 10 minutes for staff to turn up so I could check out.

Very very basic hotel close to the city centre. The walls are paper thin and you can hear everything from the cars outside to the people next door. The beds are awful, much rather sleep on the floor (was a possibility at one point). I was at a premier inn in London the night before I stayed here which made me realise how bad the stay inn actually is!

Stayed at this hotel on Friday 8th dec the desk clerk was training a young lad and he wasn’t very pleasant with him or us felt quite sorry for him.The room was very small and the bathroom was even smaller with mold around the bottom of the shower won’t be staying here again

nice room lovely and warm very close to concert arena which we wanted ,also not far from railway station.they also offered car parking space but we did not need it,freindly staff who seemed happy to help gave us directions to concert arena.full breakfast which was well cooked and tasty.overall good clean hotel for one night stay.we will return should we stay in manchester again,also will recomend to frends and family.

Stayed here 2nd December to attend a concert. The room was clean and basic. The next morning on switching the shower on in the room hot water sprayed out all over the bathroom the shower head was faulty the whole bathroom was soaked. When we complained to reception and showed them the video of the shower yes they apologised.We asked for some refund off the cost of the room but only the manager could do this so we left contact number and email address and was assured the manager would be in touch asap guess what still waiting! It's a shame because the hotel is situated close to amenities with private car park. Come on Stay Inn poor customer service!

Is very close to a major road but wasn't too bad for noise. Room was ok it was clean and the shower room was tiny but again was clean. The room was very cold so had to keep the electric heater on most of the night. When we checked in the staff were quite friendly and were no problems however when we checked out the man who checked us out who I presume was the manager was very miserable didn't speak to us at all was the other staff who thanked us for staying. Never had any food so can't comment on that. All in all it was ok for an overnight stay.
