We had a baby shower in Bethel, CT and found this hotel, booking unseen, based on Trip Advisor reviews. It was an easy ride from the Cape, albeit long, and we were pretty tired upon check in. They made it easy and pleasant, and we were in the door and in our room in less than 5 minutes. The room was clean, large, and our view, even though the hotel is right off the highway, was of the mountains and train tracks, during peak foliage season. Gorgeous. The pool is a salt water pool, and while small, it served the purpose, as did the jacuzzi and gym room. The food in the restaurant was delicious and affordable, and the staff, all of them, from front desk to room service, were pleasant, professional and over the top helpful in any needs we had. NY is literally 5 minutes away, and we were able to get out with a friend and sightsee the quaint surroundings. There is a shopping center right down the road and everything is completely accessible from the airport to the mall, from this hotel. There is even a gas fed firepit you can sit around and sip wine at night, very relaxing. Affordable, too. I'd definitely ask for a room facing the railroad track, when you book, and you won't even know you're near a highway! I'd stay there again! Absolutely!
