I stayed at the Holiday Inn Express in Branford for one night in May 2007. I didn't spend a lot of time there, checking in late at night and out fairly early in the morning, but it was a decent stay. The hotel is very clean and well kept. The staff is courteous and friendly. The room was spacious and comfortable, and the free breakfast is a nice perk. The fitness center is small but not as antiquated as is usually the case in these hotels. My only complaints about the hotel are as follows:
- the walls are very thin. I could hear the people next door to me talking and listening to their TV, even when I put on my air conditioning to drown out the noise
- the halls smell like smoke, particularly in the morning when housekeeping is cleaning the rooms. The smoking rooms are directly across the hall from non-smoking rooms, which seems like poor planning to me.
I booked my stay through an online booking service where you bid for your stay and got a very fair price. I would stay there again, but would probably bring earplugs next time.
