“Saved by the Westport Inn during blizzard of 2013”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

The entire staff made for a comfortable and successful respite from the storm! Special kudos to Kim and the front desk staff ...and the maintenance guys who even cleaned and scraped the two plus feet of snow off our Suburban! Very special food and service in the Red Hen Restaurant...they opened early in the morning and stayed open all day and night as we all waited for the roads to reopen... We couldn't leave until nearly 8 pm the day after the storm and they didn't charge us and couldn't have been nicer or more helpful. Will recommend this clean, nicely furnished Inn that has a generator, to everyone!

Stayed in a deluxe room in the rear building, which was nicely renovated and appointed. Staff at front desk was extremely helpful and nice, under the difficult situation of being packed due to blizzard.

The westport inn is a wonderful place to stay and due to the inclement weather that has plagued our area I have sought refuge there on many occasion. The staff, specifically Kim Haberstrah and the assistant manager Ron Nassef were amazing and took such wonderful care of the people there. The morning after the storm Kim was taking care of so many people and was so patient, kind, and competent. The new restaurant was wonderful and they handled the crowd in such a professional manner. Storm or no storm, this place is a true gem on our gold coast.

The Westport Inn was the choice for our district meeting. It was perfect. Meeting area was perfect for the 10/11 of us. The rooms were absolutely gorgeous and spacious. When we entered the lobby it was warm and inviting. We sat around the fireplace catching up with each other. We all agreed all our future district meetings should be here. It was easy to get to and there were tons of places around to go to for dinner. Ron at the front desk was amazing. I have told all my friends and family about this inn and how I am totally going back on my own for either a girls weekend or with my family. Can't wait to stay here again!

Room Tip: I stayed in the back building on the second floor. Rooms were huge and had high ceilings. Thermosta...

We stayed in the king suite, which was far from it. A noisy inwall heater/ air unit completed the experience. The bathroom was freezing, a comment to the front desk was met with a shrug of the shoulders. I did not expect a five star experience but I did expect more than a common highway motel room. Yes the pool is nice and the lobby area inviting,but sadly we will not be back.

The Westport Inn was recently redone and is a wonderful modern inn to make as your home base while exploring the charming nearby New England towns or visiting Fairfield University. Be sure to borrow the free bikes to take a leisurely bike ride through the charming nearby neighborhoods. Has indoor pool. Check out the beautiful beaches at Compo and Sherwood Island State Park (pricey during the season for non-residents). Convenient to the charming town of Westport and it's fashionable boutiques and delicious restaurants. Hotel has an excellent restaurant with delicious food - from oatmeal at breakfast to steak for dinner - and delicious breads, so no need to venture out to eat. But if you venture out, be sure to dine along the Saugatuck River at the River House or Arezzo Ristorante (we had the most delicious lobster here at a reasonable price).

Room Tip: Hotel is 2 story and most rooms are motel style with an exterior door - best to be on the 2nd floor.

Ron and Antonella at the Front Desk excelled in ensuring we had a great stay. It is a warm, friendly, clean and comfortable Inn that goes above and beyond in customer service. It is great value and we would definitely stay again.
