We rested so completely at this little suburban oasis. The folks who worked there are very courteous and affable. The room had a kind of big city feel for this style hotel. My only suggestion is to have some sheer curtains one can draw closed under the heavy light blocking curtains so you can get some day light in the... More

A small motel by the usual standards and pretty old by the looks of it. The manager/owner was present at check in, friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and the bed exceptionally comfortable. Because of time of year and weather hotel was quiet, handy as breakfast area is quite small. No complaints about breakfast though aficionados may complain,... More

For a stopover, this hotel is fine. Our room was clean and the beds were comfy and the owner is very friendly and anxious to please. The biggest problem was the fan in the bathroom that comes on when you turn the light on. It's VERY loud. Breakfast is the typical continental one, but clean and well presented. Also the... More

When I checked in, the front desk area reminded me of a motel 6- minus the glasses in front desk. I got the key from the friendly front desk staff, and headed to the room. It was clean, a little dated but clean. It's on the first floor, which worked for me as I preferred it. I'd definitely stay here... More

My daughter and I stayed here last weekend and were pleasantly surprised by how clean and well-appointed our room was. We chose this motel because of the affordable price and the close proximity to the Connecticut Convention Center, where my daughter was cheering in a 2-day competition. When we checked in, the manager was so nice and friendly, and accomodated... More

Our stay turned out to be a very pleasant stay and a tremendous value. The rooms have been recently updated - the expanded continental breakfast was beyond adequate - the beds were comfortable - Easy access of 91 and being only 5 mins from downtown Hartford. A great find - we will stay again.

Stayed here one night while in town to attend a sporting event. Room was clean with what looked like new linens and bed spread (always nice!!). Also, room was equipped with a flat screen television, microwave, and small refrigerator. Staff was very friendly for check in and check out. Bathroom was clean , but could use some paint or fresh...
