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...

The hotel was booked though Priceline so I didn't know what hotel I would being staying in until the room was booked. I was at a week-end sporting event at Wesleyan University during another 2015 snowstorm and decided to book a last minute room during the morning of the storm. I was travelling with another family and we didn’t want... More

In anticipation of a blizzard with extensive power outages forecast, we decided to ride out the storm in a motel. I spent considerable time checking out nearby lodging options that were pet friendly and all fell into the economy category. The only one that stood from the rest in terms of quality was HoJo's so I booked 2 nights online... More

I often have opportunity to be in the central Connecticut area and most often make it a point to stay at Howard Johnson - Rocky Hill. As a native to the area, I am aware that this motel is an older structure, I recall when it was built, but the present owners have done a wonderful job remodeling and most... More

This an older hotel refurbished. The room was clean, the furnishings pretty new, but lighting at the sink very dim, heating system old. Room warmed ok but bath not so. The free WiFi easy to connect and a good signal. Breakfast the usual for this level of hotel. Got the room with Hotel Coupon so the rate was very good.
