Reserved the Baymont in Manchester based strictly on price and nothing else. I'm glad that I was pleasantly surprised and impressed with the hotel. From the outside the hotel really doesn't look like much - another generic looking hotel in a generic suburb. When we walked in to check in to our room we expected another generic hotel experience - muted colors, that wonderful hotel carpet strategically patterned to hide stains, perhaps a disused and sad looking breakfast bar in the corner.
This wasn't the case. The Baymont in manchester is a hotel with a pleasant amount of decorations and quirkiness. I guess the best way to describe the common areas of the hotel is this: Imagine if a TGI Fridays were decorated by someone who actually collected the stuff and cared about the things the on the wall. Collections of footballs from each of the NFL teams (except the Bears, what gives?), Nascar memorabilia, photos from local parks, a 50's themed breakfast nook, a couple of fish tanks, a gold fish pond, and even a terrarium with a box turtle. And of course, what was, in my opinion, the coup de grace - an original Ms. Pacman two player console game in the elevator lobby on the third floor. My wife had never seen such a thing, much less played one, so we had to plunk down a couple of quarters. It was delightful.
The room itself was adequate. It's about what you'd expect from the outside of the hotel. It was clean, although the staff missed a wash rag from the previous occupants. The bed was comfortable. We never turned on the TV, but it was big ol' tube TV on a rickety lazy susan. Internet was about you expect from Hotel internet - which is to say it worked if you were patient enough. There was some noise from the outside, particularly in the morning as a baseball team was thundering up and down the halls at 7am on a Saturday morning.
Overall it was a great experience for the price and I heartily recommend it to other folks going through Manchester.
