Usually, we stay in Mystic to break up the drive from Cape Cod to NJ. But last minute, Saturday night, summertime, Mystic was fully booked. I saw the Hilltop had availability on a travel website. So I booked directly on Hilltop's website. There were mixed reviews on Tripadvisor, but I chanced it. First the good then the bad. The bathrooms were absolutely clean. The reviews stated "it was dated" but I could handle dated if the bathroom was spotless. It was and it turns out I didn't have to deal with "dated". The room seemed up-to-date and the parking lot had been recently re-asphalted. The coffee in the room is MUCH better than at breakfast. I like strong coffee, so I use both filter packs, the regular and decaf for one pot of coffee. I guess so many people have complained about the coffee at breakfast, that you can buy $1 Keurig coupons at the front desk. The breakfast was adequate for a gluten-free eater like me. I ate yogurt and hard-boiled eggs.
Now the bad.....a previous reviewer stated the toilet paper was like sandpaper. That reviewer was not kidding! We had two queen beds, when my husband turned down his bed, it had looked like it had been slept in and the sheets weren't changed. The bottom fitted sheet was clearly rumpled with the indentations of the mattress (you couldn't bounce a quarter off it if you tried, it would probably get stuck in one of the indentations), and normally a fitted sheet goes all the way down to the bottom of the mattress, but this only went halfway......my bed was fine. With the room being non-smoking, people smoke in front of the room, the only problem was that the air conditioning swept in the air and made our room smell like smoke.
