This was a great find. The location can't be beat (on a side street just off of Thames Street). The rooms are like little apartments (I think it is actually a condo hotel) and they look like they have just been renovated. They have a full kitchen with pots, pans, silverware, full refrigerator, etc. Really handy when you have kids.
Our room had a living room with a sleeper couch and a separate bedroom. We shared a bathroom. Nice high ceilings. They also have their own parking lot and don't charge for parking. They provide a small free continental breakfast with pastries, cereal, coffee.
The only thing about the Pelham Court Hotel is the unusual housekeeping arrangement. I don't know if they share housekeepers with another hotel (there aren't that many rooms so it probably doesn't make sense to have a dedicated housekeeping staff) but they were very inconsistent. On our 4 night trip, the room was obviously made up when we got there, on the second day we came back after a full day and housekeeping showed up to clean the room at 3PM (we ended up just swapping towels. On the third day, they didn't show up at all so we had to swap towels with the person working the front desk. It didn't bother me that much because I don't really need my room made up everyday (I just need new towels) but it really bothered my wife because we had to go out of our way to track down new towels.
It is a great place and a great location. You just have to go into it with the knowledge that it is not a full-service hotel (spotty housekeeping, no room service, no pool, no laundry) but if you are OK with that, I would highly recommend this hotel.
