4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 22, 2015

The hotel is not fancy, but the rooms are very clean and quiet. The staff keeps the outside grounds clean also. It is centrally located to everything in Branford (Thimble Islands, great restaurants (which the hotel staff recommended), shopping, and breweries.

As in the title this is a place with no pretensions whatsoever, and it does look like a classical, a bit tired motel. That said, the hosts are very friendly and helpful, the rooms are clean, spacious, and everything works. So for the price, especially compared to New Haven price levels, it is good value. The paint in the bathroom... More

This hotel is really fantastic value. 10-15 minutes to downtown New Haven, the rooms are spacious and very clean. The owners go the extra mile to ensure customer satisfaction and one example of this was when we turned up at around 2 am to check in but the owner did everything with a smile and to our satisfaction. If there... More

While not a high-end, luxury hotel, this facility is very clean, comfortable and convenient. Located just off the interstate, it offers a bargain-priced room that is large and comfortable. Our room had a king size bed, microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker and 50 inch flat screen TV, all for under $100. I would stay here again without any hesitation were I... More

The rating is for a 2 star hotel. Given the price, this is a good place to stay for a brief visit. We only needed a place to sleep for 6 hours and leave, and this was conveniently located and the staff was quite helpful, despite the fact that we arrived at 1am.

Looking in the New Haven area, we came across this great find. Less than 10 min to downtown New Haven this place is literally just of the interstate.

It's hard to criticize a place that someone else may find very acceptable. Old, musty, in disrepair, and uncomfortable. Left as early as we could. I should not have booked it but it was all we could get on short notice. We will sleep in the car next time.
