Very family friendly-non smoking was a plus. We were rght across the street from games and show at the Mohegan Arena. The breakfast was great. Wife and kids enjoyed and would use swimming pool next time

Booked two rooms over the weekend of valentines day for a hockey tournament. Location to the complex is perfect. Staff was friendly and hotel was clean. I would stay here again if the tournament returns

My children and I stay every year while we attend an event at the Mohegan Sun Arena. We always have a wonderful experience at the Hilton Garden Inn. The staff is very kind, friendly and accommodating.

I've stayed at this hotel twice in the last two weeks. The staff has been very cordial and helpful, the room comfortable, very clean with nice linens, and the food quite good for hotel dining. I travel a lot and usually stay at either Hilton Garden Inns or Courtyards. Recent experiences have shown that Hilton is winning the battle and... More

The hotel is very nice and the room very clean. We enjoyed having a nice place to stay. The staff was not overly friendly but the hotel was very nice. It was located close to the college and had plenty of eating places to go to.

Thankfully had some time to spend here on a business trip. The room is spacious with excellent furniture. The receptacles by the bed are great with USB chargers. The beds have adjustable pressure to make them soft or hard. Very comfortable pillows and sheets. The TV is large for a hotel room. The bathroom was quite spacious. The indoor pool... More

Restaurants & stores all around. Close to Mohegan sun arena and I81. Property and rooms are well kept and neat. Staff was friendly and accommodating. They have a 24/7 shuttle but he does get busy. Drivers were nice and patient even though they were running hard. Nice service to offer but one has to slow for other guests too. Taxis... More

I've stayed several times over the past couple of years. The location is convenient - Walmart, Wegman's and several restaurants adjoin the parking lot. However the staff, while friendly, is not responsive to guest issues. During my last stay I was unable to connect to the hotel's wireless internet all week. I sought help from the front desk staff on... More

Attractive lobby with gas fire going made it very welcoming. There were comfortable beds with lots of pillows. Found it good for business stay, but truthfully wasn't in the room much nor did I use much of the services/amenities. Rooms are not terribly big so consider this if staying with children. Free coffee in the morning, but other options are... More
