“It is older hotel”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2011

We stayed here one night traveling the East Coast. I booked this hotel because it is Best Western but I was disappointed. We were looking for a stay close to Mystic CT with better rates. But the rate cheapest was 161 a night. There was nothing around the hotel to see . It is an older hotel and could use remodel. Staff was nice. Breakfast next door hotel guests for morning was good and plenty to eat.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2011

Not great but not terrible either. The beds were comfortable......the rooms were clean. They do not put comforters or bedspreads on the bed, just sheets and blankets (which I found odd). The shower head was the hand held kind but didn't have a bracket to hang it so you had to hold it the whole time in the shower (annoying). The room included free breakfast which was just OK (the service was terrible but food was edible). We had to go to the front desk 3 times to get keys that worked...(pain in the butt). The TV had lots of channels including several HBO which was nice.

We found the hotel staff to be very friendly, the room was clean, bed was comfortable, pool was larger than some we've seen and the breakfast buffet suited us just fine. Would stay here again & recommend to others!

Nothing fancy but its clean, the Staff is very friendly and Helpful. My family stayed there to take in the sites from Groton and the Beardsley Zoo ( A must see) and enjoyed the location of the hotel and it was exactly what we had hoped. BTW the breakfast is a bit crowded so get there early.

While attending multiple week-long training classes Febraury - April - Over and over, week after week I heard classmates complain about their hotels in unsafe areas or nothing to offer. I repeatedly bragged and invited them to come and see this great establishment and all that it offered. In-house restaurant, pool, hot tub, nice warm chocolate chip cookies and coffee at the desk!! Those that came were thrilled!!! Minutes to some of the best the area offers in New London/Groton/Mystic. Best coffee Dunkin -Donuts next door! WalMart around the corner. Waterfront minutes away. I was very fortunate to find this nugget! I will always use this hotel when I return.

Room Tip: Just ask nicely!
