Ok place. Called to tell them we'd arrive late and they let us check in with no problem. Went with this choice bc everything else was crazily overpriced. We had to go outside to get to the inside pool and hot tub. Room was ok and comfy bed, but pathetic counter space in bathroom. Breakfast had hot food and waffles,... More

This hotel is located on an on ramp for 95 south headed to NYC. Don't miss the Steakhouse entrance or your doomed to enter the highway. I had to cross into Groton and come back before I located the property. Of course not having a sign doesn't help. Are they hiding something? Carpeting is new and walls freshly painted but... More

We stayed here for a few nights recently and were very pleased. The room was clean, bed and pillows very comfortable, and you can't beat the rate per night. Overall we were very satisfied with our stay.

Needed a place to stay overnight. For $89 this place was outstanding. Clean, staff was friendly. I was really not expecting it to be this good. It has shopping locations nearby and an outback steak house right on its parking lot. Would come back.

I have a 3 year old son and just checked into our room only to find used dildos in a drawer in the room. Now after driving 4 hours there we are driving 4 hours back as all hotels are booked. Hotel clerk didn't assist me at all and left me stranded with my child. Do not stay here!!!

We got a deal on this hotel via priceline. There was nothing great about this place besides it's location and free breakfast. The room and hallways were a bit funky. The breakfast was only good because of the fresh made waffles. Everything else was processed and package....down to the eggs. Our room was fairly good compared to other reviews. It's... More

Booked a room here because everything else near the casino was crazy overpriced. I was worried but was pleasantly surprised. Friendly front desk staff, clean and comfortable room. Only negative was that it was hard to find using our GPS. Would definitely stay here again.

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
