out of the way and quiet, perfect for families who want to unwind and get away from the super expensive hotels in the area. we always stay here because of the price and distance to mystic and providence. cheap hotel, cheap amenities, nice staff, nothing great but a safe place to be for the night.

First impression of the place. Creepy. Staff are very unprofessional and sloppy looking. The room was very old and smelly. The two chairs in our have all sorts of stain, the ottoman has a huge rip. The carpet look likes it hasn't been vacuumed since it was installed. Wall paper are peeling off. The towels that we have are so... More

This hotel could be so much better if they hired someone to fix the maintenance issues that plague it. It also needs new furnishings and linens. The rooms, as well as the rest of the hotel, need a good rug shampooing. There were stains in many places with throw mats (that curled at the edges - a hazard) tossed here... More

First the person that took the reservation was rude and I felt like it was an inconvenience during booking. I had booked a room here for my son as his Barracks room was not ready yet. Upon his arrival driving in from Michigan and checking in on Base {Navy Submarine Base New London CT} he was informed that his room... More

The hotel has an affiliation with the CHOICE hotel system, but the owners do not seems to know what this means. CHOICE hotels ensure security by keeping access doors other than the front door locked to visitors. Had I been alone travelling, I would have tried another hotel. They also were not able to explain the guest rewards system. The... More

Stayed here only because the Marriott, Hampton Inn, etc were sold out on the weekend. Arrived at 10pm. Greeted the Front Desk clerk & got a grunt from him. Looked like I woke him up. After making small talk, finally got about 6 words out of him. For gosh sakes, at least greet your guests when they approach the Front... More

The room smelled really bad from smoke. The microwave and toaster in the room was nasty with food on it. The furniture could be updated. We were close to places like the submarine base which was very interesting. I would say if you want a close cheap hotel this would work if you smoke . The breakfast was good.

I had booked 2 suites for a friend's birthday weekend. When we arrived at the hotel to check in they told us that they only had 1 of our rooms available and that the other was "cancelled" by us the day prior. Well that was a lie, they obviously gave our room away to another customer. Wouldn't have been that... More

This was the worst hotel I've ever visited. The minute I walked in the door there was a stench that was unbearable and it was very muggy. I had asked the clerk to hold a room for me in case I needed a room but since the conditions were so nasty in the hotel I could not imagine sleeping there... More

We stayed at this Choice Hotel on our drive to New York City. We checked in around 10 pm exhausted. The one person behind the reception desk was at best polite, very unfriendly. The room was barely clean, sheets wrinkled as if they had been slept on. Bathroom was disgusting. Grout was moldy and brown, the shelves next to the... More
