“Very Nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2012

I gave this Hotel an Excellent rating but there were a few minor things like a coffee maker that didn't work, an Ice machine on the 3rd floor that didn't work, no work station desk in our room. Otherwise it was a great stay and the staff was very professional making us feel welcome. Special thanks to Zack who checked us in. Very nice hotel, and glad we stayed here. It's on our Best Value properties for sure.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the highway, we did and the front desk was very helpful with accommodating...

WE stayed here to attend a graduation. The place is in the middle of nowwhere so make sure to rent a car. The room was large and very clean. Staff very friendly. The evelator went out and we had to use the stairs, bummer. Breakfast was okay but again the staff was friendly.
The walls were very thin we could hear the room above us. Someone also had a dog that we could hear barking.

This place was a pleasant surprise. Very large clean room, comfortable furnishings. The staff was very helpful and professional. Can't beat it for what it costs.

On a business trip, needing a place to stay for the night.
Reserved through hotel itself. Receptionist was extremely helpful, courteous, cooperative & knowledgeable
Arrived to hotel after 9 PM on 3/26/12 receptionist was excellent, very helpful, and very accommodating
Room was very clean with all needed amenities
Stay was great.
Breakfast was included & did the job
Although there was no food on the premises the receptionist at the front desk arranged for food delivery at extremely reasonable prices.
Great job all around

Room Tip: check into getting a suite for a few more dollars which makes stay most pleasant

Even if this is not a brand new hotel, it's very well maintained, the room are large, the beds were comfy. The breakfast was good and the room is large enough to accommodate everybody.
We stayed there while traveling back from Florida to Québec Canada. We found it on tripadvisor, and this hotel met all our expectation from an Holiday Inn Express.

We recently stayed at the Holiday Inn Express Meriden with a large group of high school students attending US Squash Nationals. This hotel was an excellent value and was most accommodating for our group. We were able to get rooms close together on the same floor. The students and chaperones were happy with the breakfast selection. Several of our players had early matches on Saturday and Sunday and the hotel opened breakfast service early so that they would be able to eat something before their matches. We really appreciated this personalized service. The hotel was centrally located to many of the schools and universities that we played at and there are restaurants in close driving distance to suit all tastes. All-in-all a very good stay.

We stayed here to be close to Wesleyan University. I think I would probably find someplace closer and a bit nicer. On the plus side, it was the quickest check in I have ever experienced. The staff were very friendly. Our room was average with very dirty carpet. The breakfast left much to be desired. They had a pancake machine that was broken (but no sign to denote that), really bad omelets, and a very limited selection of other breakfast items. I'm used to actually liking their breakfasts, so I was disappointed. Our room had an issue with the heat- we couldn't cool it down.... very uncomfortable...
