Stayed here for 1 night in April with my sister. The staff are very helpful and it’s free parking. It’s about a 10 minute walk to Deansgate so quite central too. The only issue is the bathrooms are incredibly small so if you’re a larger person you may struggle but other than was very good!

We are glad we did not read reviews before going as some reviews would have made us think twice but glad we decided to go here as suited our needs perfectly. We booked on this occasion through and got the room at a good price for 2 nights. The bonus is the free parking but make sure you register for every day of your day including part days of your stay. On arrival as we were early our luggage was stored for us until check in time so we could go and meet friends for lunch. We returned and were fully checked in and given our keys promptly. We were given a room on first floor with an option to change to ground floor if required. The staff were all very friendly, welcoming and helpful throughout our stay with reception manned for 24 hours.. We pre booked the all inclusive breakfast package through and paid for the vouchers on arrival. The bathroom and bedroom, while quite small suited our needs for our short stay. The room was clean with a comfortable bed with a sheet and counterpane and 2 extra pillows and counterpane bagged on top of the wardrobe. There were tea and coffee facilities in the room and toiletries in the bathroom and snack machines by reception. There was a TV and also free Wifi throughout the hotel. There is a seating and dining area with a bar behind reception. Breakfast was served at a good time for weekends so you could have a lie in if you wished. There was a good variety of food and drinks on the buffet and hot food was cooked to order and was served by friendly staff. The only small niggle we had was there was no toilet brush and a non slip mat in the bath as was a bit slippy. However we would definitely return and are planning to book for a stay in August.

Stayed here with 7 other friends on a Saturday night for a friend's hen do. We weren't massively impressed with the hotel as we all paid just under £50 each but it wasn't a huge problem as we were literally just staying there to sleep. Wouldn't be in it much. The staff were lovely and having staff 24 hours means we could leave our room keys with them and not loose them out drinking. All the rooms we had between us were 3 person rooms which was nice for us as we're all close and don't mind bunking up. The rooms are pretty basic and the bathroom was absolutely tiny but there were tea and coffee making facilities, a TV and towels provided. One thing I would say though is that there should be locks on the bathroom doors if it a 3 person room. Wouldn't be too bad for couples but was a bit odd for three of us. We were a little shocked when we found out breakfast wasn't included on that price but again not much of a problem for us. Would recommend for a one or two night stay if you aren't going to be in the room much.

For the price of it I would have expected more! I will get the negatives out of the way: - rooms small - there’s no duvet (just a sheet - really odd) - bathrooms are hilariously small - it is very dated - breakfast is ok .. nothing special at all - the coffee is truly vile - there’s no lift and we were on the top floor Positives: - friendly staff - free parking (don’t forget to register your car at reception) - clean room - hairdryer - tea and coffee making in the room - brilliant location and close to everything - check in and out is really easy Overall- I’d stay again if I couldn’t find another place but wouldn’t rush back

My fiancè and i stayed here for 1 night for a gig at the MEN. We were shocked and appalled. So much so that my fiancè messaged (no response) and i emailed the hotel direct (no response) on the day of check out. Here is the email i sent... "Good afternoon. I trust this email finds you well. Unfortunately, this is not a good email as i am somewhat disturbed by what we saw when we had woke up this morning in room 222. We were going to discuss it with reception but due to time constraints on our part; we had to rush off. Having stayed here previously on numerous occasions, we thought we would do so again. As we were exiting the room, we gave it a last check over - to make sure we had everything that we brought with us. As we looked around, i heard my girlfriend gasp. When asked what was up, she pointed at the smoke alarm. As you can see from the pictures below, someone has put a bag over it. Now it doesn't take a rocket scientist to work out that if there were a fire last night, we wouldn't have known. The room looks like it may have been painted recently so I'm not too sure if it's possibly from the decorators?!. I'm sure you will agree that seeing the fire alarm in this state, isn't ideal and will most definitley effect the score i give on trip advisor and obviously our decision of where to stay when we are next in Manchester. I wanted to explain in detail the reason for the low trip advior score in advance rather than you finding out afterwards."

My husband and I stayed here 27th March for Sam Smith concert. Just approx 10 minute walk to the arena. Free on site parking a real bonus. Staff very friendly and helpful. We asked if we could change our room to the rear of the hotel as it would be quieter away from main road, and this was done with no quibbles whatsoever, despite the fact they were almost fully booked.The room was perfectly adequate for our one night stay. The full English breakfast was cooked to order, as opposed to buffet style, which we feel is unusual nowadays for a budget hotel, and it was very nice. We found the Stay Inn good value for money and would stay here again when visiting the arena.

Easy to find, with adequate parking, however, do remember to book in your car. Reception staff very helpful. One overnight stop is 2 days free parking. Room was OK, no desk, chair and a small coffee table. No duvet, however, the bed cover was very heavy and I found it very difficult to sleep under it. Used the towels to keep warm instead. Wifi OK Bathroom pretty small. Hairs in the sink and stains on the wall. Double glazing inadequate and there was quite alot of traffic noise overnight

Booked in here on business trip, it is very dated. Room allocated on ground floor, with a lot of road noise. The double glazing does not help, reduced. Rooms are small it bland colour and ensuite very small.

Stayed one night for a concert . Positives - location and parking . Negatives - not the cleanest , most spacious or quietest . Basics are here but it is very minimal . Interior dated. Had to wash cups again and only 2 milks provided in room . Menu in bedroom but no pricing on it .

The hotel is easy to find, lots of parking availability ( gates locked for vehicle security after dark ) reception pleasant and polite and efficient. Room is clean, tidy and good value for money. Breakfast great. Checkout fast and efficient.
