The service was great and friendly. We were there during a snow storm and the staff was very helpful in providing information surrounding the road conditions. The location was fantastic. The hotel is within walking distance of the train station and all of the attractions in the downtown area to include restaurants and bars.

Our ck in went smooth, and they had the room ready for our early arrival. One of the kinks though, the room... More

Started out as just a place to stay while making a dinner reservation at a local establishment. The room was spotless, clean and the hotel personnel was extremely polite, courteous and helpful. We ate in the restaurant for breakfast which was above average for hotel food but the server was just a delight. We had a few drinks at the... More

After recent surgery, my wife is in need of a handicapped room. The staff at the H. I. gave us a room which allowed for "the best shower" she has been able to get in months.

I stayed here for three nights over the holiday break with my extended family as we needed to attend a funeral in town. The location was prime for our needs as all of our family functions were in New London. However, overall our impression is that this hotel is geared more for the business traveler. But we appreciated the renovation... More

A short stay to relax during the holiday season. Spacious room, quiet, clean. Pleasant staff. We swam in the pool and felt like we had the place to ourselves. Holiday inn is a great brand and the recent renovations made for a pleasant stay. The waterfront is very close and we visited the Fort and pier area - minutes away.
