At the end of a long driving day on our journey through New England we encountered Thames inn on the banks of the river Thames. It was as if we left the current times and entered the typical sixties/seventies industrial atmosphere of the USA such as we know from movies like the Deerhunter.To our surprise we were greeted welcome enthousiastically by Stephanie who appeared to be the new manager of the inn. She told us that she was busy with refurbishing the inn out of the shambles that were the result of terrible former management.
We got a room for around 80 dollar and to our surprise this appeared to be the cleanest hotelroom of our whole trip. It was newly painted, had new bedlinnen, a spotfree floor en very clean sanitair.Besides this all, 50 yards away from this inn appeared to be the best pizzeria of the whole region were you can enjoy italian specialties sitting on the outside terrace overlooking the river Thames. We slept very well and brushed the next morning our teeth while watching the boats on the river. This evening and night was surely one of the events that we remember the best when looking back on our holiday.
With this management the Thames inn will be a great place for tired travellers in the days and years to come.
