I stayed here for work in April. I chose it based on reviews from TripAdvisor and other sites. There are very few options if you are looking for a hotel in Branford. Based on the available options, this seemed to be one of the better choices. And the rate was inexpensive.
The exterior could definitely use a refresher. It is bland, dated, and a bit sad. Lobby area is small and feels like the waiting room at a doctor's office.
The common areas look like they were last updated a decade or so ago. Not bad, but nothing that feels contemporary or new.
The room claimed to have been recently renovated. It felt like they updated about 40% of it, and then just quit. It was a big room - a suite. There was a half wall separating the bed from the living/dining area. The bed was comfortable. The couch looked sad - you could see that it was in need of replacement from all the butts that had crushed it's spirit over the years. The coffee table was chipped and definitely not new. The cabinets in the kitchenette told the same store - "help us! they forgot about us when they renovated!".
The worst part of the room was that the door fit the frame very poorly. There was over an inch gap between the door and the floor. As a result, I was able to hear EVERYTHING that happened in the hallway outside my room.
In terms of Branford hotels, it's not the worst place I've stayed, but definitely not at the top of the list either.
