Traveling north this past week from NC to MA, we were caught in a nasty snow storm. My vehicle had not been winterized and my wiper lines were frozen, so in addition to the weather hampering my visibility I couldn't wipe off my windshield. The lane markers were gone and the snow blowing sideways when we saw the sign for the Holiday Inn Bridgeport. So we took the exit, all the while worrying what we would do if there wasn't any availability. Carefully navigating the storm we arrived at the hotel. There was room, and very nice porter unpacked the car and took everything to our room while my husband parked in the convenient hotel parking. It was only $8 per night. I should mention that I loved the added security of needing your room key to access the elevator. The room was well appointed, very clean, and quiet. My husband and I did not make dinner plans and we had just missed the dining hours of the restaurant on site. The very nice porter did mention that Subway was still open, and even offered to drive us over!! This hotel went above and beyond to make us feel welcome. Leaving the next day, I almost wished the storm had lasted longer so that we could have extended our stay! If I ever come through the area again, I know where we will be staying.
