“The Hidden Gem!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

Stayed here during a 2-day Manager's meeting.

This is beautiful and elegant hotel. The staff was great and professional.

The food was excellent...especially the desserts.

Will definitely recommend this place!!!

Only negative is the parking...if you don't do valet parking...you'll have to park a block or two from the hotel....

My husband and I stayed here while in town for a wedding, and it was one of the best hotel stays we have ever had. The room was wonderful and the staff was excellent. We were amazed at how polite, respectful, helpful and genuinely friendly the entire staff was. Having never stayed before, when the front desk clerk asked which room we wanted, we told him to choose, and he gave us a room on the front of the inn, overlooking a beautiful park across Main Street. The view was amazing! We would highly recommend this place, and plan to go back and stay again soon!

Room Tip: Rooms on the front have a great view!!

Loved this Inn. We stayed here during a snowstorm and it was just beautiful. It is small and charming, but has all the amenities of a large hotel. The staff is quite friendly and the entire hotel is remarkably clean. The food at the Tavern was incredible (Lobster 3 Cheese BLT Panini... To die for!) And reasonably priced for what you get. The flat screen TV had a strong signal that wasn't fuzzy, and it was satellite, so that was a bonus. The beds were very comfortable and there were several pillows of varying firmness.

I only have 2 minor complaints... First is parking. There is valet parking and meter parking. But if you want free parking, be prepared to hike down the street and park behind a shopping center. It was pretty inconvenient when we got 10 inches of snow. The second is the heating unit in the room... It's either on or off. You choose a high/med/low heat and turn the fan on, no thermostat to keep the same temp set. That gets annoying when it gets cold at night. Good thing the beds had very nice comforters and extra blankets available.

Other than those two minor issues, we had a very pleasurable stay and would definitely stay here again.

If you're coming to Middletown, you should stay here.

It's not "fancy." Nor is it a sweet little hideaway, or eclectic, or clever, or once-in-a-lifetime unique. Nope. It's simply the right hotel for this charming community.

It's a "handsome," well-appointed and up-to-date small town hotel, with a few extra intangible touches that constant travelers like myself really appreciate.

We were very comfortable.

The employees are friendly. The rooms are clean. The bar is cozy. The food is good. The rates are competitive. And it's situated right where you want to be.

Honestly, if you're coming to a quaint town, why stay in a chain hotel off the highway? Stay at the Inn at Middletown and make your way over to O'Rourke's Diner (probably the best breakfast I've ever encountered) a little ways down Main Street.

THEN, you can head up to Wesleyan and see how well your kid likes college...

We traveled to Middletown to celebrate my Aunt and Uncle's "70th", yes that was 70 wedding anniversary. We could not have had a nicer, more comfortable stay. Your staff was more than helpful and so accommodating. We will definitely stay in the Middletown Inn when we visit Family again.

Room Tip: Get an upper floor to enjoy the view of the quaint city.

The staff at check in were extremely friendly and helpful- the lobby was cozy with a fireplace and free cookies. The room was large and comfortable. The pool was a bit small if you want to swim laps, but the hot tub was bigger than normal. The only real downside here was that parking is far away, which is a pain with luggage. The wifi worked perfectly fine for me.

Arrived at the hotel and was promptly greeted by Valet who explained the parking situation. Then was welcomed by Olga when I approached the front desk. She was beyond kind and explained all of the hotel amenities. The rooms were very nice. Bathrooms could maybe use a bit of an update but other than that it was perfect and the mattresses were fantastic!! Breakfast the next morning in the Tavern was delicious and I will absolutely return! Also check out Eli Cannons Tap Room and NoRa's bakery nearby, within walking distance of hotel and fantastic end to an evening.
