This is about a 70-year hotel. Built for people 5 foot 4 inches. Everything so tiny its like built for little people.The toilet doesn't flush down the waste. And Walls tissue paper thin. You can hear every conversation in this guy left the TV on all night so I couldn't sleep. I would have been better off sleeping in my... More

My husband and I stayed over the weekend while I was performing nearby and we loved our experience at the Oakdell. The price was affordable, the room comfortable and more clean than any chain hotel I have ever experienced. I will stay there again and again. Thanks Gail!

My two girl friends and I decided to take an adventure trip to Connecticut. At last minute, we decided to spent the night.

Surprisingly, in a Saturday busy night, there were... More

I was VERY pleased with my week long stay recently at the Oakdell Motel in Waterford, CT. The room was super clean, the bed was comfortable, plenty of lighting in the room, lots of towels and good water pressure and plenty of hot water in the bathroom. This motel is 2 minutes off of I-95, and has a well-lit parking... More

Great prices, and clean. This was my second stay and my family really enjoyed it. It was very convenient to the activities that we scoped out from this location. Easy access to the location. The staff was very nice and helpful.

Not recommended for a romantic get away and meals served to your room. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The pool just had new stucco which will be nice for the hot weather. The grounds are nice and well kept.

Last week while driving through CT and searching for an affordable, last minute place to stay my mom and I happened upon Oakdell Motel. It was truly heaven-sent - an inexpensive, simple & spacious, clean room, with 2 beds and a whole lot of charm. We honestly could not have dreamt up a more perfect accommodation for our night in...

I stayed at this motel for business, not knowing my locations well enough to find something else. I didn't fully appreciate that this is a roadside motel (think 1970s Howard Johnsons). It was suprisingly clean and the service was very much hospitable. I even mentioned an online coupon and got $5 off. If you are okay with a motel like... More

This motel is a little known gem in Southeastern Connecticut. The rooms are clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. There are a variety of rooms. Ask Gail about the different rooms...some have antiques and other amenities. The rates are very low compared with the other motels around. I would highly recommend this motel to anyone traveling to New... More

The personnel at the Oakdale Motel are very helpful and friendly. They went out of their way to be helpful in any way they could. I am going back in 2 weeks and you can bet that that's where I will be staying. If you are traveling in that area you will not find a better place to stay.
