“Pretty shabby”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2006

I checked in quite late one night. My room was ready, it was in an out building not part of the main hotel. The night front office person was very nice. The first thing I noticed was a bad smell in the common hallways of the main hotel. My room was pretty shabby. I felt like I was in some type of cheap motel. I was right on ground level with a big window that I was not convinced the shades hid. The bedding was worn. The sink was appaling with huge cracks and very worn faucets. The shower enclosure appeared new. The bathroom was tiny. Heating was OK but quickly become too warm due to the small size of the room. TV functioned OK, there was a refrigerator and a small microwave in the room. No other amenities. Bed moderately uncomfortable.

For the best rate, opt for the "flexible room" rate, where they assign a room upon check-in. We got a studio suite with full kitchen! Rooms are nice and clean with a walk-in closet. Every room having a micro and fridge is an excellent touch. Very helpful desk staff.
Bathroom walls need more than just the coat of primer they're currently sporting.
Ordering breakfast off of the "restaurant" menu was a good value, but you're on your own for fresh fruit.
My advice - skip the advertised "Romantic Getaway" deal, which includes dinner for 2 at the so-called restaurant (really a lounge), unless you can't get the flexible room rate. The food is good, but for the same prices you can drive to one of the casinos and have plenty more options (props to the BBQ joint at Mohegan Sun!).
We would definitely stay here again.

Our room was clean...but we were dismayed to find no housekeeping services because of July 4th. Our suite was plain but suitable for what we needed. Our breakfast was super each day...picked off the menu, excellent.
Service at desk was okay...not great but okay.

We stayed in a deluxe suite for two nights. The general hotel facilities were fine, room amenities looked good, space almost enough for an echo, but the bathroom was claustrophobic. The king size bed provided plenty of space but unfortunately little comfort, unless you like sleeping on a trampoline. Inquiries at the front desk regarding a change of rooms or change of mattresses were met with a shrug and "We're sorry, there are no available rooms." Our request for extra blankets (to sleep on) was fulfilled, but provided only minimal improvement. A Comment card was left at the front desk upon our departure stating pretty much the same as is mentioned here. There was no response of any kind from the hotel, not even a form letter acknowledging our concerns. I have traveled to many places around the world (SA, Asia, Europe) over the past 10 years and have always been able to get a decent night's sleep. Not so at the Groton Inn and Suites, sorry to say.
