My family and I stayed for one night after visiting the Mystic Aquarium and before some serious shopping at IKEA. I chose the property for it's location..close to downtown but still far enough away. I called the hotel the day of our arrival, around noon, and requested a room near the pool (we have 2 little ones that insist on... More

Some confusion at check in but things went smoothly after that. A downstairs room was arranged for an "after reception" karaoke party which was really fun! Very nice breakfast next morning. Very satisfied overall

Unfortunately, this is your only choice for an average hotel in Branford. Marriott needs to come to the area for some competition. Prices soar in the summer and personnel are fair at best. Breakfast is typical free food,such as fake scrambled eggs but still have good coffee and healthy offerings. Beds are comfortable and accommodations are fine. If you need... More

Just stayed one night in a standard double. Front desk was friendly and the hotel was very clean and well lit. Room was also very clean and the beds were some of the best I have slept in. We did use the pool which was very well maintained although a little cold for an indoor pool. Hot tub was hot... More

Stayed here one night for a wedding. They were very accommodating in letting us get into our room early as we were going to a wedding nearby. The room was lovely. The breakfast the next morning was far better than expected. Everything was hot and constantly replaced. If you are going to a wedding at Wood Winds, this is a... More

Finding this hotel at the last minute, I was not real sure what it would be like. When we arrived on Saturday morning, we inquired at the front desk about leaving our luggage in the porter room as we were traveling to the Coast Guard Academy to visit a family member. The staff was more than happy to accommodate us.... More

Pleasantly surprised at the value I got at this property. My room was spotless (had a fridge/ microwave/coffee maker) and included Bath and Body Works amenities. Breakfast was included and there was everything imaginable. Initially, I had an issue with accessing the internet, Julie, the front desk receptionist, immediately help me resolve it. I did not use the pool, but... More

I stayed here on a business trip. I found I needed a CF Card reader to download some photos and did not have one with me. The staff located a Best Buy nearby and provided written directions on how to get there. They seemed eager to help which is rare in many cases nowdays. Also the room was clean and... More

We visited family in the area and were delighted to find this hotel. Clean and neat room. Perfect location for us. We dined with family, but there were several restaurants nearby. Wi-Fi was free and good. Breakfast was very crowded--actually no place to sit and they were out of eggs; however they had pancakes, cereal, muffins etc. etc. Will definitely... More
