My husband and I stayed for one night(22/10/2013)at the Stay Inn Hotel because we were going to the MEN arena for a gig. We had a lovely time; the location is perfect for the arena and the bar being open until 1am was a bonus for after the show! The room was spacious, clean & comfortable, and our friends complimented the breakfast highly (we didn't wake up in time...oops!) Free parking, another massive plus. The staff are lovely and friendly plus when I discovered I'd left a piece of jewellery in our room, they went out of their way to find it and get it back to me. Thanks to Zara and all of her colleagues. We'll definitely be back!

A clean and tidy hotel both inside and out. Only stayed for one night with 2 more guests on 23rd - 24th May while visiting MEN arena, good location. Food was served hot, the only down side was that there wasn't a vast selection of meals. Would definitely use this hotel again when going to MEN arena. Staff were polite and helpful.

My partner and I stayed 9th December for one night. Ronda on front desk was an absolute star and so welcoming. Room was a decent size and car park was excellent. Will be seeing you all in June next year. Thankyou for a pleasant stay x

I stayed here end of September 2008 for the Labour conference and we are about to repeat the experience this year. I should have got round to doing a review then! I found my room was a good size, the food was good and good value, I don't think they could make it any cheaper for what you get - it is worth ordering an evening meal if you are in as well as just the breakfast as it is nicely cooked and prompt. The staff are very helpful, there is a twenty-four hour reception and location wise it's very good for the centre of town - it looks on the map as if you are slighty off-centre but in fact you could walk to the GMEX in 25 minutes (perhaps quicker if you have long legs!) and less than that to the rest of the town, and 10 mins to the MEN as others have said - it's not usually worth getting the tram as you are so near but you can part of the way if you have luggage or are tired!

We booked for a 3 day convention. Paul and staff were exceptional they could not do enough for us. We requested a room change from the front to the back, as we are not use to traffic noise and felt we would not be able to sleep. They did this with no hesitation. The food was good and freshly cooked, and you could sit and relax in the lounge afterwards. The secure car park was a real bonus, we were able to leave our car there for the 3 days of our stay without worrying about finding parking. We will definately be staying again next year for our 3 day convention. A big thank you to Paul and staff.

Loved how the staff were so Welcoming after being on a boiling flight for an hour then the long drive. I had a Lovely Chat with one of the male staff for a couple of hours, keeping me company whilst looking after the other guests! The rooms were lovely, however, like mentioned, the bathrooms were a little smaller than expected and the beds were like cardboard boxes, but apart from that, I had a very Pleasant stay and I do intend on coming back !! Maybe even find out this guy's name!! HAHAHA!

Great budget hotel nr city centre, staff very friendly and helpfull, rooms are similar to Travelodge standard altough bathroom a bit small but had a fantastic power shower, hotel is also very clean. A Great base to enjoy all that Manchester has to offer and would definately stay there again.

Sheila & Gerald Comment left: Friday 22nd April 2011 - 16:12

I read quite a few bad revues about Stays Hotel, Manchester, but I can tell everybody including those who panned the hotel - that me and my husband found our stay there fully enjoyable, we had a lovely room with a spotless bathroom, the staff were most accommodating to us especially for my husband (providing cables for my husband's sleep machine)and courteous. We would not hesitate to use this hotel time and time again.

Carl & Claire Comment left: Wednesday 15th September 2010 - 08:24

Paul on reception was very friendly and welcoming on our arrival, rooms were very clean and a good standard. Hotel is around a 10 min walk from city center or for those who prefer to get a taxi, around 4 in a private hire (front desk will phone a taxi for you) in a black cab - its about 5.

Nicola Comment left: Monday 16th August 2010 - 14:36

I have stayed here twice now, once last year on my own and once this year with my daughter. On both occasions my rooms were spacious and clean; breakfasts and evening meals were tasty and you were always offered plenty in the breakfasts. Staff were very friendly and always ready to help out. Hotel is so handy being close to the city centre. I will definitely be back!

Paul & Lesley Comment left: Saturday 26th June 2010 - 21:02

We stayed here for one night while visiting Manchester for a concert at the MEN and a shopping trip. The hotel was ideally suited being around 10 minutes walking distance from either location. Booking our room online was really easy, we felt we got an excellent deal and the staff on arrival could not have been more friendly or helpful. The room was clean, tv, tea and coffee, a comfortable bed, adequate bathroom ensuite, free car parking on site. What more could you ask for? We will definitely use again.

Andrea, rhian and zara Comment left: Tuesday 25th May 2010 - 13:40

I booked a triple room for myself and my two children, for attending a concert at the MEN Arena. It was a ten minute walk to the arena and about the same distance down to the Arndale Centre ( Great Location). The room was well set out and very very clean. The staff where very pleasant and helpful. Meals where made fresh when ordered and they didnt take long to come. Also it has free parking which was secure parking as the gates where locked on a nite ( Not many hotels had parking at all and it costed a fortune to park in NCP Car Parks). The price for a triple room was fantastic. Will defo use again !!

Majella & Gerard Comment left: Saturday 13th February 2010 - 21:36

Clean,comfortable, friendly place to stay. Staff were most most helpful. The Breakfast was good and plenty of it. I would stay there again and recommend it to my friends. Short distance to city centre and to finish i shall say a special thank you to the night staff on 11th Feb 2010

This was our second visit to the hotel and we enjoyed our stay. It was really clean.No complaints see u again soon, probably in May next year as we just booked another concert!!!

Jo Comment left: Thursday 12th November 2009 - 21:14

Stayed for one night as seeing a show at the MEN Arena. Possibly the best hotel we've stayed in (in this price range). Excellent location, a very short walk to the arena. One of the few hotels so close that has free parking which is a plus! Very, very clean hotel - in all areas, corridors, restaurant, rooms etc The only worry on arrival was the mattress seemed a bit lumpy but appearances can be deceptive - it was very comfy! Also, unlike a lot of hotels the room wasn't stuffy. Had breakfast - which was good value. And really refreshing to find somewhere that does a vegetarian cooked breakfast. Staff were friendly and helpful too. I'd definitely stay at the Stay Inn again.

Glenn A Comment left: Wednesday 21st October 2009 - 09:15

Stayed overnight 17-18th September and was really suprised with how good the hotel was. Great value for money with free parking at the hotel. Excellent room and spendidly equipped bathroom. Very clean. A few minutes after I had left the hotel in the evening I was sat outside a wine bar in Deansgate ! Most excellent. My only very slight citicism was that the breakfast could have been a a little bigger, but that is really the only critism I have. Will definately stay again when I am in that part of the world.

C White Comment left: Saturday 3rd October 2009 - 08:59

Really enjoyed my stay - came for a business trip so wasn't expecting to enjoy myself, but the hotel is great, the staff are very friendly and helpful. The room itself isn't the biggest but did the trick... the whole place was very clean so in general, would deff recommend this to friends and colleagues :) and would deff come again! Thanks for having me!

Melanie Comment left: Wednesday 19th August 2009 - 07:07

A group of us stayed here 15th August. Really good location 5-10 min walk to Deansgate, great location. After a late night really impressed that breakfast is served until 11.00am, one of out party came down at 11.15 and it wasn't a problem for himm to also have breakfast. Staff friendly & helpful. Would definately stay here again.

I stayed at the hotel a few weeks ago and even though the prices were abit high the stay was fairly nice. The new bathrooms really stood out and made my stay more pleasureable.

David coward Comment left: Sunday 18th May 2008 - 20:29

The Stay Inn is cheap (for Manchester), relatively close to the city centre and the rooms are clean if basic., parking is free. There really isn't much more to say except even though it was the night of the UEFA Cup it was still relativley quite considering! and we had a good nights sleep. We will return....
