Stay Inn Hotel Manchester

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The Stay inn small hotel easy walking distance of the middle of Manchester, compact rooms but very clean and staff really friendly with car park as a bonus. We would use this hotel again in the future.

Bit of a dump with non-customer oriented staff. Makes me wonder why certain people do customer facing jobs that they obviously dislike so much. Decent location though for the price. OK for a weekend away with mates but wouldn't ever stay with family

Just booked one night for a concert but not really worth what we paid. Small room and the room/carpet rather grubby. Decided not to eat there. Shower unit so small I kept banging my elbows! We wouldn't stay again.

We stayed the night of the 29th October....again no complaints...yes the rooms are small....said many times in reviews. Decent shower, clean bed, clean towels, hot water. The staff were again friendly and helpful....plenty of tea and coffee...near a main road, yes...but it didn't make a difference to us. Ate breakfast at the hotel. This is a budget hotel, but for a stay in Manchester to visit a concert it fits the bill. The car parking is free which is a plus in this city, especially the cost of overnight parking in the city. We have stayed before on our visits to the Arena....this time we were at Bridgewater Hall.....we did wonder regarding the cost of a taxi.....the taxi was arranged by the hotel....came on time....after the concert we rang Manchester Taxis.....the firm that took us there and they picked us up within five minutes and took us back to the Stay Inn......cost....just over £7 each way. Thanks to the staff for your friendly no nonsense approach. We will continue using the Stay Inn for our one night visits to the city.

The hotel nave Free parking and good Wi-Fi, room are dated but with tv and hairdryer, not big size but enough. Really poor breakfast, for more than 7 pounds is definitely better eat outside, restaurant offer food but it is better no comment. 1 night it's ok but not back.

The location was great; 10 minutes walk to the city centre. The room was basic and a bit old fashioned but adequate; it was very clean which is a big thing for me! There were tea and coffee making facilities, a hair dryer and TV. The shower produced hot water so no dramas there. We were in room 6, which was a disabled room. The bathroom had a shower over the bath and hand rails in the bath and next to the toilet. There were three emergency cords in the room (one next to the bed and two in the bathroom). Staff were friendly. Didn't eat there so can't comment on the food. Parking is free and secure. Whenever you leave the site you are asked to give your room key in and to collect it when you get back. The reception is manned 24/7 so this isn't a problem. Free WiFi is available. Overall a pleasant stay and we would go there again.

Arrived at the hotel, the first thing my husband and I noticed was the stolen range rover that had obviously been stolen and dumped in the car park. (burst tyres, number plate ripped off) when we arrived at reception, it wasn't the best welcome when a gentleman came down from the rooms and handed his key back to which he then asked for a refund, we were signed in and told where our room was. The room smelt awful, as if it hadn't been cleaned, the bed was hardly a double bed with one flimsy pillow on either side, the decor was from the 80's, cramped and there were stains on the carpet. We didn't even look in the bathroom before we made our way down to the reception and asked for a refund. The only good thing I can say about this hotel was that the staff did give a full refund no questions asked. I think when you notice a stolen car.. And also a shifty looking exchange deal done in another car in the car park..your instantly on your guard! But happy we were given a refund.

Booked this as a one night stay for myself and my mother. We were going to a spoken word event and the location was perfect, tucked away. The room was decent, seemed recently refurbed. I will say though that due to the location there was a lot of noise from traffic and police sirens but can't really be helped. The negative side points to the breakfast. Really poor meat, quite cold and generally unacceptable for the price. I'd say go with the continental which isn't much difference in price. Does the job for an overnight stay. Go somewhere else for breakfast.

We had a great stay here following a concert at the Manchester Arena. Bedroom and bathroom were small but clean with fairly comfortable beds. Room had all that was needed for an overnight stay, including tea/coffee making facilities. Great budget hotel for Manchester near the Print-works and Arena all within walking distance. Free overnight parking was added bonus.

Staying in the hotel for one night which we chose as we knew it to be close to Victoria station. Whilst my friend was checking in I asked two members of staff who were cleaning the area how long a walk it was to the station. To my shock I was scolded by the receptionist and told not to speak to 'his staff' and if i had any questions to ask him. Not only was he rude and obnoxious to me but also completely demeaning to his staff. When I questioned how dare he speak to me, as a customer, like that he was unapologetic and insisted I was not to initiate conversation with his staff. To add to this, when we returned later in the evening we found we had been given a double bed instead of a twin room. This was then rectified however we were given twin beds with a bunk bed across - not ideal for 2 grown men. As regular visitors to Manchester we will never stay here again and I would not encourage anyone else to unless you're prepared to be insulted and see staff being rudely treated.
