I've stayed at Farmington Inn for business several times. I've found the service and friendliness of the staff unparalleled. The rooms are very nice and always clean. The added bonus is the historic nature of the Inn. The WiFi is free and works well. Ask about the availability of the hotel's shuttle. The drivers are also very friendly and helpful.... More

This hotel is rather dated (the television had a VCR built into it) but our room was spacious enough to accomodate a king sized bed, desk with chair, television armoire, two nightstands and two chairs easily. The fitness room was limited but suited my needs perfectly - cardio machines and free weights. We did not use the housekeeping service per... More

We stayed here visiting family and it was lovely. The rooms are beautiful and you can walk around the little town very easily. Highly recommend!

My friend and I stayed here for a girl's weekend. We were meeting up to attend a concert and doing some retail therapy outside New Haven. It was a quiet but convenient location just off Route 84. The room was very pretty with dual poster beds with canopies. Very clean. Standard amenities. Pleasant and helpful front desk help. We were... More

This is a very unique hotel experience for me. When I stepped into the lobby and received a heavy metal room key from a very friendly hotel employee, I knew I picked the right place. I stayed 4 nights there with my family including two young kids. I felt so at home. Everyday, after a busy or fun day, I... More

Upon arrival, the staff person was pleasant for the late hour at which we arrived. (Bad rental car situation but that's another review.) There is some underground parking in case of precipitation. I was a bit troubled from a security point of view that the door into the hotel from the covered parking was unlocked despite being given a key... More

If anyone is qualified to speak as to the quality of this Inn, it's me...I've spent time here at the Inn on 4 separate occassions over the last 6 months...for approx. a week at a time. The beds are excellent, the staff is exceptional, the overall value is hard to top...with complimentary breakfast bar/shuttle service/internet access, and the location is... More

Screwed us. We booked in July for a wedding in October. After a very long drive and arrival, we were informed nonchalantly that they were oversold and subsequently sent us 25 minutes away in the middle of nowhere. Thus we were nearly 2 hours late for the rehearsal dinner. And the sister hotel was teeming with people - dueling parties,... More

I blocked rooms for my 10/9/2010 wedding in Farmington here in 5/2009. I wanted to block early since I knew there are a lot of wedding venues in the area. I was quoted a reduced rate of $129/night for a standard room for my guests which was reasonable. I heard a new Hampton Inn opened nearby, so I quoted them... More

Once again I find myself at odds with most reviewers. Perhaps they're pedestrian... Maybe it's me, perhaps I'm elitist... Though I really don' figure it that a way. This property's website sold me. Egg on my face. Descriptions and photos online fail to show curling wallpaper, filthy stained hallway carpeting (I've travelled the world... Even the Third World... Never saw... More
