We usually stay at the Grand Pequot Towers but decided to check out the Great Cedar since we were able to get a rate for only $65.00 per night. Check in was easy and fast - in fact there was no line at 5:00 pm on Monday when we arrived. Stayed in a 2 double bed non smoking room.
Room was large enough but the double beds were the shortest double beds we've ever slept in! I am only 5'2" and my feet just about hung off the end of the bed.
The bathroom was your typical hotel bathroom. One plus however was that there was a second sink outside. Worked good when there were four of us in the room.
Another plus was the windows actually opened. Nice to get some fresh air on a cool summer night.
Television appeared to be a recently upgraded plasma. ONE WORD OF CAUTION - no matter how low you left the volume when you turned it off the night before, when you turn it on again the volume resets itself to LOUD! Couldn't sneak the tv on in the morning to catch the early news without waking everyone up.
The location of the hotel within the casino is another plus, it is close to the action and centrally located.
The pool area was small and dark - pool and hot tub in the main room. Each locker room also had a steam room and it's own hot tub. The gym, while free, was pretty small and basic. If you have young children, this is the pool that stays open to kids from 6:30 to 9:00 when the Grand Pequot pool turns into an adult only faciltiy at that time.
It was definately worth the 65.00 per night we were charged, and may stay again in a King bed room.
Given the choice of spending a few $$ more, I think I would pick the deep marble soaking tub and longer double beds at the Grand Pequot.
