Great place to stay! Good location, big and clean bedrooms, good service, you will have everything you need close to the motel. The owner is a very nice person. I have stayed here several times (4 to 5 times) and I would recommend this motel to anyone.

After attending the funeral service for my brother in MA, my sis & I were guided to the Oakdell Motel in Waterford CT since all larger motels were filled. We were so pleased, that we would purposely stay there next time we travel. The rooms were exceptionally clean & comfortable. There were touches of home including a pretty little basket... More

I live in the Hartford area and work in New London. Two and sometimes three times a month, I am booking an overnight stay at Oakdell to avoid the 120+ mile round trip. Gail Googins, the owner is a very special person with genuine warmth and compassion for the customers she interacts with. My rooms have always been impeccably clean,... More

They say they are dog friendly but they really aren't. Bathroom molding along floor coming off wall and moldy. We were told the rooms were cleaned twice a week but it was only done one time and the beds never got made. There is constant road noise. No screens in the windows and they only will give you one key.... More

The owner is very nice and was more than helpful. But that was as good as it got. To start, it looks as if this hotel has not been renovated since it was built. Considering the current owners have been with the property for 44 years, I would guess it was built in the late 60's or early 70's. And... More

Stayed two nights while on getaway to Mohegan. Gail was very friendly and welcoming. Grounds are well kept. The room was smelly and the comforter old and tattered. We left mid morning the first day and when we returned after 5:00 the bed was still unmade and we had to empty our trash. We left and returned a few hours... More

The staff was very friendly and make you feel at home. They have a grill by the pool and a gazebo. The back of the motel has benches to hang out in their quiet property. Accommodating parking for trucks . Maid did a great job cleaning up my son's popcorn crumbs .

We have stayed at the Oakdell 4 times in the last 7 months. We fine it to be pleasant and economical. We have no complaints with bed comfort or other amenities. We think it is great and will be back there soon!
