I had to get hotel last minute after leaving the roach motel days inn next door. I needed to stay there for work at hartford hospital (close proximity for safer travel) due to snow storm and the fact that my neighborhood doesn't get plowed until storms are over. Staff was awesome, manager especially, making sure I got the discounted rate... More

Location is good, right off the highway. This is an old hotel and it shows. People are friendly and it was fairly clean. Breakfast was typical. Wifi did not work. Chowder Pot restaurant next door was great. I would stay here again if it was my only option.

I stayed here for one night and was disappointed several times. Overall, the suites are fine for one night, I can be picky and insist on cleanliness, so for the most part this place will be just fine for most. However, my issues were: the comforter had blood spots on it which were initially covered with a top sheet but... More

The rooms are exactly what you expect for the price. The wallpaper is peeling a bit, but the rooms are otherwise quite clean. Basic and slightly dated, but more than suitable.What people are saying about the toilet seat not staying up due to the granite top is true; not a big big deal, but you can tell whoever was supervising...

We stayed here for 4 nights and found it to be a very nice hotel. The rooms were clean and we overlooked the capital building. The staff, no matter what time of day, were so friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was nice to have available. I'd definitely stay here again when I'm in Hartford. P.S. Eat at Hot Tomato's... More

The hotel room was nice, simple! The hotel was very clean but needs some updates, yet still was pleasant. The hotel manager was working the desk, and breakfast the next morning. You could tell he cared, as well as his staff. Jay was wonderful, and again his staff. They made the stay wonderful.

They provided convenient shuttle bus to and from any downtown spots within 10 miles. You just need to let them know where you are or where you would like to go.

Whenever I return to Hartford, i stay at this hotel just off I-91 a couple of miles south of downtown. I've always had a good experience, even on one of those Saturday night young kids' concert nights mentioned by others.
