I booked a last minute stay at this hotel. I paid for a non-smoking room and when we arrived, the stench of cigarettes was overwhelming. I called the front desk to ask for a room switch. I was told that the there was no other rooms and the front desk person offered to spray the room with room freshener. I...

A pretty run down hotel, that was originally a Days Inn back in the day as the phones indicated. Carpets looked like they haven't been cleaned or changed in forever. The room had a small mini fridge and a tube tv. It worked in a pinch to rest for a few hours but anything else would have been a better...

I am sorry you were unhappy. I am in the process to change the room carpets first and then change the hall way carpets too. As far as it goes about the TVs are old fashion, the problem is people walk away lots of items from the room. I am afraid they will go home with the TVs too. I...

Thank you very much for your comments. we'll work hard to fix the issues you experienced. we are planning to install the A/C in the hallway.

Usually don't write reviews but wanted to give heads up. The key cards won't work, the desk man will send his wife out to open the door for you, so if you want to go out again you will need to have him get her to let you in again. Clean sheets tho. TV was weird too.

Sorry for you bad experience. Normally the key cards work all the time but if you keep the key card next to your cell phone, it deactivates the magnetic strip.

This motel was very run down. Upon arrival my boyfriend and I were told we would have to stay in a smoking room even though we booked non-smoking, the women at the front desk was rude. Trying to keep an open mind we brought up our stuff to the room where we found hair, and stains on the bed sheets....

When we arrived in the afternoon, people staying there were loud-yelling and partying. Our bathroom had black, mold-like stuff on the bathtub. The towels were like sandpaper. The sheets were old and rough.

I was hesitant to stay at the Niantic Motel after reading the reviews, but there were no other options since everywhere else around the casinos was either booked or WAY overpriced. I had a non-smoking room with king sized bed for $80 ($92 after taxes). The room was clean and in decent shape. Everything from the wallpaper to TV was...

My wife and son and I stayed one night while traveling and were very disappointed in the whole motel. Our room was filled with grimy scuffed up old furniture. The TV was an antique, and the signals came from the 1950's. The windows were grimy, and needed to be replaced. Shower curtain falling down. Hair (SOMEBODY'S hair) on both beds'...

The place is old, no elevators, the beds are old, hallways smelled due to old rugs and people smoking in rooms nearby. The tub was not draining properly. I used an extra blanket and there must of been a bug because something bit me. Had to go to walk in clinic 2 days later. There was a possibility of being...

I don't understand that why people don't use their real names or at least mention the room number so I can investigate and take care of the problems they experienced. No doubt building is old and no elevator. I can not make any changes but I do have new bedding. Obviously smoking floor is going to smell like that, If...

We got a spacious room for $81 on Memorial Day weekend (2 queen beds). It was hot and our air conditioner worked great. We actually had to turn it down. On the downside, there was no a/c in the hallways. Our bathroom needed to be cleaned more thoroughly. There was a stain of what appeared to be shampoo or conditioner...
