Tracy and Johanna helped me set up a travel event for my group of female entrepreneurs. The attention to detail was wonderful. I am extremely careful and I ask for lots of things to make my guests feel special, but they were happy to do it. We upgraded to the highest level of rooms, so I can only speak to that, but they were very spacious and comfortable. We used the boardroom, which was perfect for our intimate group. Alan from the front desk literally jumped at every chance to help us, and I asked for quite a few favors! He picked us up, drove us to dinner, provided us with water and white boards for our time in the boardroom, he made copies of our itinerary, gave me pens ... just above and beyond. Shantilly was wonderful too (hope I'm not spelling that wrong). The cleaning staff when asked where something was would walk you there, just so sweet. Location wise ... we were in walking distance to several stores for healthy lunch options, and we were just minutes from stunning dinner restaurants like Pearl and Terrain (you will thank me for those recommendations). THANK YOU WESTPORT INN!!

A pipe burst at home in the middle of the night and had flooded my kitchen and another room in the house so I needed to pack up quickly with a small child and dog in tow. Let me just say that the gentleman at the front desk was very helpful both when I called and in-person offering me a lower floor upon arrival to be more convenient for us. It's been at least a decade since I've been in this place and I knew reviews used to not be the best. Let me just say that I was pleasantly surprised when we walked in at almost 1 a.m. and there were two larger sectional couches around a cozy fireplace with a beautiful fire going. It was very welcoming. The room we stayed in was nothing spectacular or fancy but was immaculate and warm (one this cold January night/morning). In the morning we got breakfast at the restaurant in the lobby. Breakfast was delicious. We got pancakes and the Spanish burrito. Very large portions and food was amazing.

The Westport Inn is an alright option for a place to stay in an area where there aren't a lot of options. Rooms are motel-style, with the room door facing the outside. Rooms are clean, although a bit dated. Very quiet, perhaps not surprising given its location.

In town to visit colleges. Wanted to stay away from a bigger chain (which I usually do) and found the WPI. Pictures must be from years ago. Hotel rooms are run down, wallpaper peeling in room & bathroom, mold stains in bathroom, dripping showers, etc. The beds were comfy & the towels clean-nice toiletries too- so really what more should I need for one night. Apparently, there is new management and they are very poor with customer service. Not friendly or helpful. Very abrupt and dismissive. Added the breakfast option- which was fine - but still was charged for coffee & tea (Again, why I would recommend a chain) and had to pull teeth to the get $8 charge removed (for coffee & tea!) Had Dinner at the restaurant (hotel has a comedy club downstairs- FYI) and those poor people were SO overwhelmed. Made an 8pm reservation. Everytable in the restaurant was dirty-had not been bused- the staff was nowhere to be found. Food was very good, servers were friendly & apologetic. Best part of the trip was the wait staff. We will be back in the area many times in the future and WILL NEVER STAY HERE AGAIN.

We had a team work event for a few days with on site meetings. The staff was friendly and the catering was fine for the most part. I wouldn't visit again. It was not the most comfortable visit in that I didnt feel safe. I did change rooms to a second floor after initially being on the first floor. Most of us were booked in the motel portion of the inn although there is a newer building with a fitness center and pool. It was too cold to use those services given that I needed to walk outside in 20 degree weather. Our meetings were in a basement room that was freezing each day. We later were told an exterior door was left open. It was odd to learn that since the door had been locked on day 2 when a few of us were escorted through an office instead of using the locked exterior door. We had breakfast and lunch catered on 1 day and just breakfast on another. I enjoyed the meals although serving items were missing and the coffee was cold both days. I'm not sure why. We had salmon and chicken marsala at lunch and I enjoyed both. I heard no complaints. The team handling our meeting did come to change things out as the meeting host realized new issues. We had one disabled colleague in the new building that was ADA accessible but it was very far from the meeting room and he had to use stairs. Luckily he was not in a wheelchair. My rooms were fine/basic although it was strange to have no headboard on the bed.
