“Very Nice”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2011

I have stayed here on two separate occasions. The rooms are simple, tasteful, and clean. The breakfast is very basic but sufficient. All the staff I have encountered were friendly and helpful. I recommend requesting a room on the second floor, you'll get less light from the street/parking lots and won't have to worry about noise above you (we could hear the people above us walking around quite a bit when we stayed on the first floor).

My wedding weekend in Farmington was fabulous, due in large part to the wonderful, warm staff at the Farmington Inn! I worked with Karishma and her colleagues over the last year to coordinate a discounted block of rooms, shuttle service, welcome bags, etc. for over 100 friends and family traveling from out of town to attend my big day.

Karishma went above and beyond the call of duty to accommodate all of my requests and the front desk staff was consistently friendly and helpful to every guest. Their van service, run by Jean, worked additional hours to provide complimentary shuttles for guests who needed transportation at odd hours to and from the airport to the Inn, in addition to providing all transportation to/from the rehearsal dinner and the actual ceremony and reception. A big highlight for guests was the complimentary breakfast, which provided an opportunity for people to meet and mingle each morning. My husband and I spent our wedding night in the bridal suite, which was lovely.

Overall, I was thoroughly impressed by the quality of the rooms, the value of the amenities included in your stay, and - most importantly - the fantastic staff.

My husband and I have stayed in the Farmington Inn when his company sent him to the town of Farmington for work-related classes. The rooms were clean and comfortable; the staff at the hotel is very friendly and accomodating. They host a continental breakfast in the morning, consisting of hard boiled eggs to waffles, and yogurts to fruits. The chamber of commerce is located right in the hotel to assist with anything you'd like to do in the area. There is a nice walk down Main Street, which allows you to view some incredible historic houses, some dating back to the 1600's, that take your breath away. It is located close enough to attractions that enable you to visit such places as the Mark Twain and Harriet Beecher Stowe houses in nearby Hartford, and a semi-short drive to the Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods Casinos about an hour away. The town was also a critical point in the underground railroad, hosting everything from Amistad gravesites to a French Revolution cemetery on a hillside (Momento Mori). You can also reach the ocean beaches of southern Connecticut in an hour as well. I recommend visiting the Hill-Stead Museum, which was left to everyone as a museum by the previous owner, one of the first women architects in the United States. For a small entry fee, you get to tour the home, which was built in 1898-1901, and view original artworks by various painters. All in all, for never have been in that area of the country before and getting to go there twice in a little over a month, I came back with a lot of nice memories, and would stay here again without hesitation.

Room Tip: The four-poster bedrooms are beautiful!

I've stayed at Farmington Inn for business several times. I've found the service and friendliness of the staff unparalleled. The rooms are very nice and always clean. The added bonus is the historic nature of the Inn. The WiFi is free and works well. Ask about the availability of the hotel's shuttle. The drivers are also very friendly and helpful. If you're traveling on business, I always recommend a surge protector strip. Hotels seem to not have enough outlets for all of the electronic devices people have nowadays. I don't think you'll be disappointed with your stay.

This hotel is rather dated (the television had a VCR built into it) but our room was spacious enough to accomodate a king sized bed, desk with chair, television armoire, two nightstands and two chairs easily. The fitness room was limited but suited my needs perfectly - cardio machines and free weights. We did not use the housekeeping service per se, but rather would trade out glasses, towels etc. when we saw them in the hallway. All staff was exceptional in every way - professional, helpful and friendly. The breakfast cafe was great, always had something tasty and it was part of the room rental. The free wi-fi was a bonus and our cell phones worked well in the room and outer areas. Well lit exits/entrances complete with trash/cigarette receptacles. Since we had a long stay, coin operated laundry would have been a plus along with a way to store and re-heat food. Overall, a pleasant experience.

My friend and I stayed here for a girl's weekend. We were meeting up to attend a concert and doing some retail therapy outside New Haven. It was a quiet but convenient location just off Route 84. The room was very pretty with dual poster beds with canopies. Very clean. Standard amenities. Pleasant and helpful front desk help.
We were in a downstairs room and the floor/ceiling is not soundproof. I spent 45 minutes at 6:30am on a Sunday morning listening to the upstairs guests walk back and forth and back and forth. Ask for a second floor room.
The breakfast offerings were acceptable but it was not kept refilled and we had to ask for more coffee, more milk, more bagels.

Room Tip: Ask for second floor.
