“Strictly Business”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2014

Best Western Olympic Inn is better known as Flannigan's, the hotel bar and restaurant, and for good reason! The wait staff is always friendly and attentive, the food hot and delicious. The room I stayed in was nothing to write home about but filled the bill nicely as a clean smoke-free (if not a little dated) room with decent internet and functional ammenities (fridge, microwave, coffee maker- can't say anything good about the in-room coffee though- it was abysmal and you're better off going downstairs to the pot in the lobby or dropping in Flannigan's for the complimentary breakfast buffet with fresh hot coffee; I am a coffee snob and proud of it!) Parking was sufficient and Dunkin Donuts is right outside if the breakfast buffet doesn't suit you.

We needed proximity to Connecticut College. This was easy, except for the gauntlet to cross 4 lanes of I-95 traffic to reach the exit. The hotel is clean, if a tiny bit outdated. The staff is very, very nice. The restaurant is standard.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

WE stayed here for 3 nights as our son was graduating from navy sub school. Location is great- about 5 minutes from the base which was very easy to drive to.First impressions mean a lot. The carpet in the lobby is dated and dark in many areas. You can see clean areas along the walls of what it used to look like. Rooms are a bit dated but seemed clean. The bathroom was dark and was needing some updating. It was average. The heat/air was old and hard to operate. One of those old puch buttons and dial mechanisms. Could not get comfortable temp wise...was either hot or cold all night. The breakfast was good, service was good and the selection of food for free breakfast was a saving grace. Coffee, juice, eggs, toast, pastries, bacon and bisquits and gravy.

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was large and clean. Close to everything we wanted or needed to do.I would be happy to stay there again. The only problem was the smell of smoke in the common area. For that it did not get a perfect score

Hotel room was clean. Front desk service, excellent. Comp wifi and breakfast, casino shuttle made this a wonderful value for the cost. Loved the shiuttle to the casino. It made it so easy to just get on the bus and be dropped off. We called the hotel when we were ready to leave the casino and were picked up 1/2 later.

Comfortable bed. Clean, quiet room. Not far off the highway and easy to get to. Dunkin Donuts shares parking lot (definately happy when I saw that). Didn't use pool or hot tub due to busy schedule. A lot of parking, but access to building from parking area was limited.
