If you're considering The Mohegan Sun,this hotel is app. a mile from there. They have a shuttle that is very prompt and courteous. The girls at the front desk called them for us and we also got plenty of coupons from them. We had everything we needed at our fingertips. After we came back from the casino we went to... More

However, we did have one major complaint.... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for reviewing your recent stay. 35 years ago! What took you so long to come back? The weather really turned nasty, you were lucky to get off the roads.

This hotel was a nice surprise. Some finishings looked outdated but then you'd have the impression that it is a work in progress. Front desk staff were very friendly and accommodating. The room was nice. Not spacious but had everything we needed. The closet had no doors - was located behind a simple curtain. The bathroom was clean but pedestal... More
