Many hotels/motels in the Mystic-Groton-Norwich-Uncasville area are just okay or subpar. The Clarion was just okay, which actually is paying it a compliment. I've been to other Choice hotels that seemed better managed. The workout room was like an icebox, the indoor pool was unheated, the complimentary breakfast was underwhelming. That being said, the room I had was roomy with... More

Sadly, this motel, in a convenient location on I-95 between Boston and New York, is a seedy, second class roadside motel. Hallway carpets are worn and soiled and need vacuuming; AC units are so noisy they can be heard from the hallways; the parking lots and outside plazas and public areas need to be swept of the cigarette butts and...

Worst experience I have ever had at a hotel especially for 250 for one night..... The experience here is more what I would expect out of a cheap rent by the hour place.... My room had a toilet that didn't flush... Nobody fixed it (and maintenance was here) breakfast is from 7-10 but it should say from 7-8 cuz there... More

Returned to main desk to get handicap room & received a change!! 2) Room had no refrigerator or micro-wave! Back to front desk to ask why(Following Morning). Was told by clerk you have to make a request when... More

Overall, this hotel was fine - not the nicest, but clean, good breakfast, comfortable. However, due to our stupid mistake of not locking our car door at night, a backpack was stolen. Driving around prior to checking in, I could tell this was not the best neighborhood, and that was confirmed with the theft, even though it was partly our... More

Front desk staff was friendly and accommodating. The room was comfortable. The breakfast was decent (coffee was even good). The hotel is a bit run down but it is a good deal for a low priced hotel. I would recommend it, if you have a limited budget.

We stayed here for a couple nights because it's close to The Coast Guard Academy. It had a decent free breakfast, but that's about the only good thing I can say about it. There was a dirty washcloth and half a bar of soap in the shower. There were really long waits at the front desk due to being understaffed.... More

all hotels were booked around the Mohegan Sun casino. We were there for the Barrett Jackson Auction held at the Mohegan Sun. The room was very small, carpet not very clean, bathroom floor was sticky, the smoke detector was hanging of the wall. For a non smoking room the refrigerator had numerous cigarette burns on the top. There was no... More

Upon arrival we were told no rooms were "clean" yet. (We made the reservation weeks in advance). We sat around waiting for a clean room for 45 minutes!!! This totally threw off our schedule for swim, dinner and a play. We had to skip the swim to be at the play on time. One person working at the desk had... More
