4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2014

Quiet location off interstate, close to attractions, Walmart, restaurants. Friendly reception staff and greeting. Spacious and clean king room with desk & chair, comfy chair, dresser, larger fridge with ice shelf, small micro wave oven, CRT TV with frequent signal problem. Clean batch, granite counter, curved shower curtain. Apparent refurbishing, repainting and repairs, but still work to be done. Bfast in sub-basement conference room consists of reconstituted scrambled eggs, waffles, baked goods, yoghurt, juice, coffee - the usual Styrofoam feast. PC and printer in lobby. Good value for price paid (less than 60 during low season). In-house Indian restaurant seems popular with the locals. Good martini, decent dishes and service.

Room Tip: the hotel is a mile from the interstate and off the main drag. All rooms should be quiet.

Overall experience very good. For the price of the accomodations the experience was good. The hotel while a bit outdated met my needs and expectations. If people are booking this property thinking its a 4/5 star property - - - they will be disappointed upon arrival - - - I would receommend this property to everyone I know.....

The first room I was placed in was probably not cleaned for a very long time. The door would not open or close unless you slammed your body against it. The toilet did not flush well, and the bathroom light decided when it wanted to work. The sink for the bathroom was beside the bed which was odd. The amount of dust on the furniture in the room was atrocious... I could write things in the dust it was so thick. When I turned down my bed there was hair and black specks in the sheets. The wallpaper and walls were not in great shape, many were stained. There was also this rectangle of wallpaper that was glued to the wall which apparently used to be electrical switches that they didn't want to remove properly and just stuck wallpaper over it. My friend complained about the room, and we were moved to the second room. The second room was better, but not by much. The walls were still filthy and in poor condition as well as the bathroom door, and apparently covering light switches in rooms with wallpaper was a common occurrence. The sink was next to the bed and in the bathroom, odd but ok. My bed was cleaner, but made me itchy the entire night so I couldn't sleep at all. My pillows were filled with dust so I couldn't use them, and if you whacked them they would spray a film of dust everywhere. The television would constantly lose signal. We went down to check the pool and it didn't look sanitary enough to swim in. Honestly, this hotel had to be the worst choice, and I will never stay there again. If I would of had the money, I would of left and stayed somewhere else.

This is the second time my wife and I have stayed in the last two years. First we stayed in July of 2012 to go to Mohegan Sun without breaking the bank. It was cheap and easy drive to casino. The rooms weren't very updated at the time but it was clean and served it's purpose. This visit was good too! The room was updated and looks like carpeting in hall was too. The bed was King sized and was very comfortable with great pillows too. We stayed at a very very low rate. They have an indoor pool and jacuzzi and an Indian themed restaurant. Also, they had a complementary breakfast. We didn't utilize any of those, but for the price they sure do have a lot! Will definitely come back for trips to Casino.

This hotel was horrible and disgusting in every area! We chose this hotel to save money, but I regretted it as soon as we checked in! The first thing we noticed as soon as we checked in was the overwhelming smell of cigarette and pot smoke in the hallways. When we got into our room it was FREEZING and the heating unit that was falling out of the wall and growing mold inside of it only blew out cool air, even when set to 86 degrees. The next thing we noticed were the stains all over the bed spread, sheets, and pillow! We also found a rather large paint chip in between out blanket and sheets. The shower was also so filthy that I didn't even want to stand in it. There was also some kind of brown liquid dripped down the bathroom wall and splattered all over the mirror. The TV was outdated, which didn't bother me except that every 5 seconds it would post an "Unusable Signal" on the screen. The windows were also so dirty you could barely see out of them. The coffee maker was not plugged in and didn't have any outlets near it. There was also someone else’s left over still in our fridge!! There was also quite a bit of garbage outside the hotel right by the guest door (water bottles, papers, a shopping cart). This hotel was the worst I have ever stayed in!!! I recommend you spend the extra money to stay somewhere else. Trust me it's worth it!

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else!!
