“Stop on the way home from Maine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013

I made a reservation for my husband and I to stay here on the way home from Maine. the hotel was conveniently located off the turnpike. The staff was nice and friendly, the room was nice,nice big bathroom. One complaint is the AC unit ,to me, was loud, cycling on and off all night. Also we stayed at a Hampton Inn on the way to Maine, in Shelton,CT. The room was more of a suite with a microwave and fridge. Also had a seperate room with a sofa and desk area. The breakfast was good!

I booked this hotel through Expedia when visiting the University of Hartford with my son. This hotel is cheaper than a similar Hampton Inn Farmington and served our purposes well. I tend to be allergic to most hotel rooms and I did fine in this one. The bathroom was cleanest and one of the nicest I've seen (TV, dresser, etc. could have been dusted, but other than that clean). The bed was comfortable (often an issue) and I loved the fact that the duvet covers were freshly laundered. The breakfast room is spacious and looks newly remodeled. I didn't care for the waffles, but my son enjoyed the breakfast cake and there was a really good selection of food in which to chose (cereal, yogurt, fresh fruit, eggs, bagels, juices, etc.). I was afraid that since we didn't eat breakfast until 8:45 the selection would be minimal, however, an employee was refilling the fresh fruit. The ice machine was not working on the 5th floor, but that was not a big deal and I simply went to the 4th floor. I would definitely stay in this hotel again.

Stayed here at the beginning of our trip to Canada and at the end of our trip from Canada. Both stays were pleasant and had experienced two different room types. Our return trip home we were provided with a Studio Suite with King Bed, large, spacious suite, large kitchenette, large bathroom and living area with sofa, desk, coffee table and dresser with tv.

Breakfast was delicious with Maple Sausage Links, make your own waffles, fresh cut fruit, oatmeal, cereals, bagels, muffins, 4 different kinds of juice, coffee/tea and cheese omelets.

Location was right off highway in the downtown, although we didn't have too much time explore. There was a gas station located right down the street and easy access to highway.

Would definitely stay here again!

Check in and out very easy. Room clean and quiet. Location excellent. There were some travel teams staying there with lots of kids. The only time you heard them was at the pool and at breakfast. The breakfast was excellent. While the staff may have been overwhelmed with 50+ kids eating there, they remained in good spirits and continued providing food right up until 10 am when they were supposed to close.

We were extremely satisfied with our stay, the staff were all so pleasant and helpful, genuinely concerned with our happiness and the quality of our experience. Everything was clean and fresh, and the bed was incredibly comfortable, by far the best experience we have had at ANY hotel and we will definitely be back again!

We stopped here on our way back home after our recent trip to Maine. The hotel is in a quieter area in East Hartford, but downtown is just over the bridge with everything it has to offer. The room was clean and quiet and we had a perfect night's sleep. Although I had made an error on my reservation, a fix was cheerfully made and we had no worries. A great choice if in the Hartford area.

We had a great stay at this hotel! We were pleased with just about every little thing! The free breakfast each morning is a life saver for travelers who want to get up and out in the morning! Our experience was really great and we would come here again!
