We had a good stay and accomplished our goal of cooking all our meals and staying out of restaurants, saving hundreds of dollars on our trip to visit our son, and we prefer to cook our own food because then we know what is in it! I'm a good cook so it's no bother for me to whip something up... More

Email sent and never returned after stay: Hi John, I needed to reach out to you about our stay. Wayne was nice, and helpful but never present. No one was ever around the office when we needed something. It was clear he was in the dark from the time we arrived. He admitted to not knowing of our arrival and... More

This hotel is at the seaside with a nice view of New London across the harbour. Although the place looks aged but redecoration works is going on. Our room is big completed with fridge, cooker and oven. We cooked our dinner and ate outside the room while enjoyed the sunset. As we did not drive, the manager offered to take... More

I have stayed at their other property recently then decided to come here, being familiar with the area (which includes the don't miss Paul's Pasta, see my other review on that, Fort Griswold, and other excellent attractions). The view is nothing short of spectacular, see my photos, and the room is spacious and very well equipped for a longer stay... More

It gave good military discounts so for us it was relatively cheap, and the people were very nice and helpful. But it is older, with a DIY'er remodeling it, so if you are looking for "4 star hotel accommodations" you will be disappointed. If you are looking for a decent place to sleep, it should meet your needs.

6-29-14. We really liked our room, a place to stay until the next morning when we caught the ferry to Block Island. It's roomy, clean, decent TV, and has two nice double beds. $138 including tax. However, when we got there at 5pm, there was no one in the office, but only a phone number to call, but one had... More

This was one of the worst - and strangest - experiences I've ever had at a motel. We arrived at about 9pm tired from a long drive- and were greeted by a locked office with a hand-written note saying to call a phone number. I called a couple of times with no results. Shortly after, a guy shouted down from... More

Thank you for the review. Our front desk closes at 6pm which is stated on our web site and Expedia's web site and it states if you are going to arrive later you should call and make arrangements.

My husband and I just got back from a weekend at the Thames Inn and Marina. We had a wonderful room overlooking the water and the manager couldn't have been nicer. The hotel is conveniently located minutes away from many area attractions and restaurants. The room was clean and comfortable. The only drawback was the hot water. It took forever... More
