Our first room had holes in the wall and spackle covering other holes. Sheets were stained. Lights missing on/off buttons. Jacuzzi tub stained and had no water to it. Was changed to a different room that at least had clean sheets and jacuzzi but was afraid the mirrors over the bed were going to fall down.

Person behind the desk was friendly but not very smart. Here ends the good part. Filthy room. AC smells when used. Door looks like it's been forced before. We asked a non smoking room (we found it strange to be offered the choice) but the room smelled like someone had been smoking there. The sheets although clean (we think), had... More

This is the worst place I have ever made the sad, sad mistake of staying in from convenience of location without reviewing Trip Advisor. Believe me, it will never happen again. We were attending the graduation of a relative from graduate school and had a great dinner at a local Mexican restaurant with friends and other relatives. I had checked... More

The rooms and the services are terrible. The first room they gave us was a smoking room although we had specifically asked for a non-smoking room. This room was like a crack house. It was unkempt with stains all over. The bathtub and toilet were gross and the so called Jacuzzi was even worse. The beddings looked like they hadn't... More

This was the nastiest place I've ever been to. I can't believe how dirty it was. Hot tub filthy. Hair on the blankets. The pillows smelled unwashed. Towels dirty, white stuff on the curtains above the bed. (Can only imagine what that was) Random porno on. My boyfriend and I ended up leaving, didn't bother staying the night. As soon... More

The Service was horrible, everything was dirty, the jacuzzy was extremely dirty. There was a terrible cigarrete smell. There's no ice. The ice bucket was dirty. There was hairs on the bed and on the towels. The front desk attendance was more interested in his phone that of our needs and complaints. The carpet was dirty with burn marks all... More

Good and bad - room was clean and sheets were fresh. The hot tub was very grungy and I could not see this until I was in it so it was too late. There was no safety chain on the door and there was no clock in the room. I was given a smoker even though I requested non-smoking. Decor... More

We went there because we needed a place to stay near New Haven and we didn't plan ahead. The woman at the front desk was nice, but otherwise the motel is not good. even non smoking rooms smell of smoke and the rooms are not clean. (burned holes in the bed sheets). It was fine for a night, but not... More

My hot water trickled so I went to the front desk, which had a pleasant staff, but was informed the other Jacuzzis were filling it was Saturday. Well after waiting for hours with the hot water on all the way I got almost a 1/4 inch and finally gave up. I drove all day and looked foward to this tub.... More
