I was there for one night. Won't stay again considering I came home with some bugs I didn't arrive with and had to change the sheets when I got there. Unfortunately there was a ton of the last person's body hair in it. Gross!! There was still hair in the sink and on the towels. This hotel is definitely overpriced... More

I read the reviews before booking here, so it was not a total surprise.There aren't a lot of choices in Hamden so here we are. Even though it is being remodeled, the hotel is not well maintained (don't look too closely at the showerhead...) The Internet is slow. The breakfast is mediocre. There are not enough outlets. Parking is out... More

Terrible room, terrible service. We booked this property on priceline, so had little choice, but had we not already paid up front, we would have turned around and paid more to go elsewhere. This is essentially an old, run down motel. Which might not be a problem if it were clean and friendly, but the room was so dirty that... More

I come to Hamden often for business, but I'll be staying in New Haven in the future. I tried to cancel a second night of my room in advance, and the woman at the front desk couldn't figure out how to do it due to being booked by a third party vendor. She said she was new and didn't know... More

I checked in late, Amanda was on her "A-Game". I got to my room to find the carper near the AC sopping wet. The room had a funky smell, I should have know to look. I called the front desk. Amanda immediately offered to swap out to the same room 2 door down. She ran the new keys up to... More

Management is rude! Their customer service is horrible. Rooms are dingy. I have never been to a hotel where any interaction with staff they come off with an attitude like you are bothering them. I will NEVER stay here again.

The accommodations were clean and comfortable and the staff is friendly and attentive. Don't expect fancy or luxurious. But, it is neat, and the suites are spacious. The free breakfast is excellent, too.

We live in Pittsburgh and every year we drive to Maine for a week or so. It's too long a drive to do all at once so we find an intermediate stop in each direction, usually determined by what the museums along the alternative routes are offering. A frequent stop coming back is to visit the wonderful Yale Art Gallery... More
