I will state that I did not stay at this hotel but visited a relative who was "living" there. This property has 2 buildings- 1 is completely booked by semi-permanent long term residents who are essentially homeless. There is a lot of substance abuse and questionable activity that takes place in this building. This building is rarely cleaned and many... More

If you are staying in Branford, steer clear of the Branford Motel unless you really have no money, need to stay in Branford or need a long-term rental. My first stay was for three weeks and after looking at three rooms, found one that was barely acceptable. Each of the rooms has flaws, all lacked a suitable level of cleanliness.... More

I was going to stay here for about 9 weeks, but could only get through 2. I am a non-smoker, and everytime I walked into my bathroom, I could smell cigarette smoke. There were different bugs in the bathroom. The walls were paper-thin. People were inconsiderate by shouting outside at all times of the night. One day I had no... More

Stayed here once or twice. Great for us as adults, but not really a family place. A little "shady" - can't think of another way to put that. Good location though, near some great restaurants like margarita's and there is a subway in the parking lot for great snacks or lunch. Also just down the street from Stop and shop... More

This was a terrible, terrible place. Very dirty and we could hear people having sex through the walls. The front desk man would not give us our money back. We left around 11pm after checking in at 9:30pm to find another hotel.

the photo listed here is not the actual property, that is holiday inn express which strangely is owned by the same group, most of the guests here are live ins, it seems apparent that prostitution and drug activity are a norm here. i then found out that within the past 8 days 4 dead bodies turned up in the hotel,...

This place is known to at least some locals as "Bubbles and Cuddles". We stayed not knowing better, and not being able to find any other place in town anyhow. Amazingly, we had generally speaking a comfortable and restful stay. Had a very large and comfortable hot tub in the room. The large room turned out to be very clean,... More
