“Well run property, with one drawback”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013

Stayed in a King suite with sleeper sofa. Very roomy, comfortable room, with full-sized refrigerator, microwave, "kitchen" table, along with sofa, work desk and flat screen TVs. Furnishings were attractive if not particularly stylish.

Breakfast area was inviting with plenty of morning light and comfortable sofas and chairs, as well as a few tables and counter space. Coffee, oatmeal, bagels, pastries, fruit, make-your-own waffles, scrambled eggs and potatoes. No meat.

The main drawback I found with the room was that it had an older style heater that had the following settings: High heat, low heat, off, low cool, high cool. The thermostat is mechanical, not electrical: a turn knob for a range between full heat and full cool. But it appears to not turn on and off depending on the temperature the room reaches: if it is set to low heat, the only way to actually regulate the heat is to get up to adjust the knob or to turn the setting to "off." To me, this is a significant drawback that prevents me from giving the hotel more than 3 stars.

Clean and very quite hotel. Good value for the money. The staff was extremely helpful. Rooms were very clean as well as the rest of the hotel. The bathroom ammendities were very nice. The heating and air condition system worked very well. The breakfest was hot and a lot to choose from cereal to hot food. The fruit was fresh.

We chose this hotel because it was close to the casinos. Our check is was very efficient, and we were recognized and rewarded for our gold status. In the lobby there was coffee, tea, drinks, cookies and fruit. Our room was clean and very quiet, the bed was comfortable. We had a great night sleep. We were a little bummed out with the low water pressure in the shower. Breakfast was pretty standard, but the hostess was really great. She was super friendly and obviously cared about her job and her customers. Not only did she make sure everyone had everything they wanted, she made sure the presentation was attractive. We will stay here next time we are in the area.

This was only my 2nd time staying at a Hampton Inn. I usually stay at Hilton Garden Inns. Since the Hilton Garden Inn in Groton was booked and I wanted to use points I decided to stay here.I was impressed. I was attending a concert at Mohegan Sun and this hotel is about 20 minutes from Mohegan. Staff was very friendly. Hotel was clean. There was fruit, cookies, and a nice selection of tea in the lobby. The free continental breakfast was convenient and decent. The only complaint I had was that the heater in the room was loud. I'm a light sleeper so this was a bit of an issue for me. I actually ended up turning it off because it was really warm in the room. But I would definitely stay here again. I would give it 3.5 stars but there wasn't any way to do that.

Wanted to give a review of what will become my new hotel of choice for casino trips.
Pros:
20 minutes to Mohegan Sun
Applebees next door, as well as other places to eat pick up things nearby
clean
free breakfast
fitness center got in a good 30 minutes on the elliptical
pool ( didnt use)
comfy bed
nice bathroom
microwave and fridge in room ( i didnt use as just there for the night)

Con:
I really shouldnt even say as fairly common in hotels, but everytime the wall unit came on would vibrate then make a noise, no biggie really but again no place is perfect

Room Tip: I stayed on 2nd floor and it was fine, quiet other than the wall unit

We had a nice stay at this place on a Friday in Feb. The lobby area was nicely decorated and there was a free grape drink and cookie tray.

Our room was clean and there were no major concerns. The carpets were old, and probably the only thing I would change in the room. The walls were a little thin, and we could hear our neighbors.

It is close to Mohegan Sun. It was about a 13 minute drive to the casino. The price here is much better at $98 than staying at the casino which was $500+.

If you can't get a room at foxwoods or mohegan Sun this is close to both for an overnight stay. Free hot breakfast and great coffee, tea and hot chocolate bar free all day as well as fresh fruit and iced beverage in lobby. Very helpful staff and lovely rooms. Don't hesitate...(Applebee's next door).
