Holiday Inn Express, in this part of the world, appear to be either revitalising or rebuilding their hotels. We found this easily (following the railway lines mentioned in previous Tripadvisor reports!), and yes, the noise of the train is invasive. However, as a visitor to the US, I quite like hearing the sound of the trains tooting as they go by.
The hotel was new and the staff very friendly. The entrance lobby was welcoming, and full of goodies like fruit and biscuits for visitors. The rooms were on the small side, but clean and comfortable, and we didn't have issue with the beds - they were fine. Torrington is not a place on the beaten path, but it served its purpose for us, and we enjoyed our stay. The hotel was heaving - a school reunion and two weddings! - so it is obviously enjoying some popularity.
