Due to computer issues, I wasn't able to read the reviews until the day before my trip. I was very nervous, not knowing what we would find, anticipating having to find another hotel upon arrival. Instead, I found our room was nowhere as bad as reviews led me to believe. We were in the main building in Room 116. The... More

We have used this hotel two times when staying in Connecticut. It is an average hotel, the room was clean as well as the pool area. The staff were very friendly and quickly accommodated our request for a first floor room. The good thing is that it is close to Mohegan Sun and many restaurants, there being an Outback Steak... More

Stayed here for one night last weekend. First of all, I requested a room in the building with the pool. When I arrived, I was told that wasn't possible because they "never saw that"on my reservation, and secondly, they were full the night before and "only cleaned enough rooms for the reservations we have for tonight". In other words, there... More

There was no room in our usual hotel and had tickets to Jeff Dunham at Mohegan Sun. We stayed 2 nights here in a very clean,pleasant room . Price was great and breakfast was included to my surprise. Would go there again. Staff was very helpful with directions to the beaches.

My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and went to see a show at Fox Theater. We wanted a place that was close enough to Foxwoods and Clarion Inn fit the Bill. The place was nice and neat and there is an Outback on site for a quick bite to eat. Te only thing I didn't like was the... More

Stayed there for two nights. Front desk was very courteous. Graduation weekend and the hotel was quite busy. My room was very nice and clean. The pool just reopened this weekend. Room comes with a small breakfast consisting of a breakfast sandwich, yogurt, coffee and rolls. It is worth the price...

This hotel claims it is 2.5 stars. The TV is from the 1980's and compared to most 2.5 star rated hotels, it falls far behind. I extended my weekend stay, and they made me change rooms which caused me to miss an appointment. Very unprofessional and inconvenient to change rooms. I would have packed and went to another hotel if... More

I booked this hotel on hotels.com under the belief that it was close to Foxwoods and had free shuttle service and a free full breakfest in the morning. Upon arriving at the hotel, I found out that I was 20 mins from Foxwoods and that the "Free Shuttle" was not free at all but charged you $10.00 per person to... More
