Good and bad - room was clean and sheets were fresh. The hot tub was very grungy and I could not see this until I was in it so it was too late. There was no safety chain on the door and there was no clock in the room. I was given a smoker even though I requested non-smoking. Decor... More

We went there because we needed a place to stay near New Haven and we didn't plan ahead. The woman at the front desk was nice, but otherwise the motel is not good. even non smoking rooms smell of smoke and the rooms are not clean. (burned holes in the bed sheets). It was fine for a night, but not... More

My hot water trickled so I went to the front desk, which had a pleasant staff, but was informed the other Jacuzzis were filling it was Saturday. Well after waiting for hours with the hot water on all the way I got almost a 1/4 inch and finally gave up. I drove all day and looked foward to this tub.... More

Fabulous stay. Graciously greeted upon approaching desk. Acknowledged as being IHG Reward member. Check-in was prompt. Room was cozy & comfortable. All amenities worked well. The pool & spa were both very relaxing. The morning breakfast was both plentiful & filling. I will stay here again when in the area. I strongly recommend to others to stay here. It fairly... More

A Complete Dump DO NOT STAY HERE!!! They don't offer any refunds and it is the worst place I have ever seen in my life. All the light fixtures were missing light bulbs, mold around the hot tub, blankets dirty as hell, spider webs everywhere, carpets filthy, mini fridge dirty, door locks and latches missing. A COMPLETE DUMP!!!!!!! I looked... More

The security chain was missing, the base was there, but the chair was torn off. There were no table lamps on either nightstand, only the overhead and bathroom lights. There was moldy, mildewed grout all around the edge of the jacuzzi tub. The remote for the tv didn't control it at all, had to get up to change the channel.... More

We had been driving for 12 hours so booked on the road while driving. Photos looked OK and price was good. We were stuck there as we were exhausted and had paid already. What a dump. Very sleazy with hot tub in room and PORN on the television ........ not pay-per-view, just one of the regular channels. And the night... More

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
