“Dirty Hotel”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 16, 2013

After driving for 13 hours we stopped in at what had appeared to be a nice hotel on line. However, upon entering the elevator we suspected things to be a bit dirty. Walking down the hall it was evident that the carpets had not been cleaned in a while. The room was not clean, walls were were marked up, dirty and the bathroom was not much better. Mould on the ceiling and smelled. Should have checked back out but after 13 hours of driving wanted to sleep. Would recommend that the hotel receive some renovations sometime in the near future. One positive thing, the hotel staff were very friendly.

Stayed here for two weeks when I was blocked out of my preferred hotel. Service was good, and if you request it, you can get a room with fridge and microwave. Free breakfast includes Danish, muffins, toast, cereal, and sometimes, pour-your-own waffles. Didn’t have time to use the pool and exercise room, but the latter looked in good condition when I took a glimpse through the door.

My second week was arbitrarily in a smoking room, so I learned that I will have to request “no smoking” next time. Although CTTransit’s 86R route turns at the nearby corner, it does not make stops for inbound passengers in the morning, so it is useless. It’s a good fifteen minute hike over I-84 to the 83 route on Silver Lane. This is the biggest negative for me, although it would not matter to driving patrons.

Room Tip: Be sure to request a No Smoking room or be ready for a second-hand habit

The bed was comfortable, and there were enough towels. The bed had weird tiny pillows. The heater in the room blew air but I wasn't sure if there was actually any heat coming from it. (It was April so it didn't really matter.) There is a pool in the motel (which is something I look for since I like to swim) but it wasn't operating when I was there. The hallways looked like they hadn't been vacuumed in a while (there was some small bit of paper trash right outside my door). All this I could overlook if it wasn't for the "breakfast." I have never, ever seen a worse breakfast in a motel. Your typical 1-star motel continental breakfast is far superior. This breakfast consists of a plate of danishes, English muffins, and cereal boxes that look like they've been there for a while, all hidden away in a dark, freezing cold room in the back of the first floor. If breakfast matters to you, look for a different place to stay.

I stayed during my business trip to Hartford.... the first day i reached ... front office provided me a room in which AC unit was not working..... Also later I called up several times but noboday cared to fix it .... Later they had provided me another room... that room was also having AC unit problems .... it was making noise. Also the rooms are very congested.... No proper dining facility... The lounge and common areas like lift smells bad... no drinking water facility on the floors... Worst hotel I ever stayed in my life..
