Gorgeous locale right in the beach! Did not stay at the hotel but made visit to restaurant. The views for dinner are amazing and that the real reason I rated this very good. The night I was there the staff seemed unprepared for the influx of patrons or someone called out last minute and they were short staffed. Once seated... More

Caribbeanfruit - Thank you for taking time to post a review of your recent visit to the Madison Beach Hotel and The Wharf. I regret that our level of service was substandard and will be sure to discuss your comments with our staff. I absolutely agree that menu knowledge is a must! By the way, our Carbonara features lightly deep... More

I have never traveled to this part of Connecticut but was in the area on a recent business trip so I tried the Madison Beach Hotel. Not sure what else may be in the area, but what a wonderful find. The hotel is situated on the water and my room had a lovely morning view. The hotel is certainly very... More

Spent one night there and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The view from the room was spectacular, and the room itself was luxurious and comfortable. We had drinks and breakfast at the restaurant too and thought it was delicious. Highly recommended for a weekend getaway.

We stayed on a very cold February day, but the weather did not matter. We had a very comfortable king room with an electric fireplace, large tub and beautiful view of the water and snowy beach. We were unable to use the balcony, because it had snow and ice on it. I was wishing the hotel would have shoveled off... More

My husband and I happened to be in CT on business and decided to find a hotel near the water. After reading TripAdvisor and seeing all of the great reviews, decided to stay here. Best decision! The lobby was welcoming and warm, the staff was very friendly and accommodating. The room was amazing - So many wonderful details from the... More

Needed a weekend getaway, far enough but without luxury of time to take the full weekend. This was a great balance. Started out with a spa appointment on Sunday. $135 for a 50 min massage (includes gratuity). Very relaxing. Compared to competitors the rooms were adequate, not a lot of extras. I'd return with a package/discount. Bonus was it was... More

This was our third stay and we were very happy with everything. The valets are polite, helpful and pleasant as are the test of the hotel's staff. Rooms all face the Long Island Sound and are beautifully furnished with European style bathrooms. Sunday brunch was delicious and sitting on the heated porch overlooking the water was an extra treat. Offseason... More

My husband and I were in desperate need of a weekend getaway from the kids and all of our responsibilities. We live in central Connecticut and my initial thought was to go to Maine or New Hampshire to a romantic inn - anywhere out of state. But our winter had been filled with one snow storm after another and I... More

We just had a 3-day, 2 night stay at this hotel. The location and views are to die for. We had a third floor king suite that we previewed on the internet. Unfortunately, the room advertised / seen isn't the same room we were given (a big let down). We saw a room with a large bathroom and a separate... More
