How did this place get a 4.3 star rating? It's run down. The room smelled. The toilet wouldn't flush down toilet paper. The manager said the toilet was working properly and issued me a plunger in case I had problems during the night. The entire free breakfast offering all fit on a five foot long counter.

We stayed on our way to New England. Got in after midnight. Had to speak to the desk clerk through a glass. There was a lamp in the room that was flickering more off than on. We joked that someone was warning us via Morse code. The manager attempted to fix it saying the plug was just loose but the... More

I booked this place based on some positive reviews and am very let down. The check in was quick and painless... well there's the good. The room is beyond tiny, (microtels are way bigger if that gives an idea) sucks for closterphobic people . They have very old tv's, bubbled wallpaper and carpet, and stained linens. The carpet (even though... More

This isn't the prettiest hotel with the best amenities, but I knew that going in. It was a cheap option when I stayed in town overnight, exactly the way I expected. The room was clean, the staff was friendly; the only thing I was disappointed by was the "free breakfast", which consisted of orange juice and doughnuts. Not even toast?

Had to spend a quick night in Hartford, and this was the most affordable combination of price and rating. It's a bit off the beaten path (which is less desirable) but not too remote. Check in was quick and pleasant. As with so many hotels nowadays, this one has no lift, and even with overnight luggage, a second floor was... More

I'm going to lead with the positives: the room was clean. And basically furnished. If I was aware of a microwave and fridge when I booked the room months in advance I had forgotten by the time we arrived--so these were pleasant surprises. There was also plenty of hot water. And the location was convenient to I-91. Within sight of... More

Stayed here on our way out and again on oour return trip. The hotel is very basic.....with no frills...we were given a two bedroom suite both visits that made our stay so much more comfortable.

This place has seen its better days. Our room was very roomy but somewhat worn. The carpet was threat bare. The ceiling of the bathroom had a large water stain. The toilet flushed only if you hold the handle down. The sheets on the bed were too small so they could not be tucked in under the mattress. The breakfast... More
