I would have given this a five as for the price it is an excellent choice. However, it is not a 5 star hotel and doesn't pretend to be and it a bit tricky to compare with much more expensive hotels. But we would stay here again for sure!
We decided to overnight before our 6am flight at Bradley even though we were staying not too far away with friends. The front lobby is clean with a breakfast room and seating area for TV with sofas and club chairs. Our room 143 on the ground floor was very clean with a king size bed, TV, fridge, desk, desk chair and a club chair. The room was a bit chilly at first but as soon as we turned on the heater the room warmed right up.
Since we wanted to drop our rental car off at the airport the night we arrived, we were told to call the hotel when we got to Hertz and they would pick us there. The van arrived within 10 minutes. A real time saver. Dave, the van driver, was very friendly and told us if we wanted to go out for dinner, they would be happy to drop us off and come back to get us before 10 pm. We would have done that if we didn't have a 6 am flight. We've stayed at many more expensive properties and have never been offered a service like this before.
There is an small indoor pool, a small gym and a small "office." There is free wifi which is pretty fast. Breakfast is also free but it starts at 5:30am not too bad but too late for our 4am shuttle ride. We were pleasantly surprised when we got to the desk to check out at 3:50 am that there was coffee, juice, muffins, bagels, cereal already set out for early check-outs. The breakfast that starts at 5:30 includes do-it-yourself waffles and other hot items. The van was warming up awaiting the driver. The front desk manager in the evening was very hepful with directions and advice for dinner. The morning manager very also friendly and welcoming.
The bed was quite comfortable. And even though the hotel is just off 91 North, it is very quiet. Although we didn't go out to dinner, there are menus for nearby restaurants that sounded really good. It is a bit farther away from the airport than other hotels, around 7 miles, but the convenience of the early free breakfast and the very accommodating van availability is worth the extra 8 minute drive.
