“Sailfest experience”
Reviewed July 14, 2008

What an awesome day Sailfest was! The hotel needs work but the manager is a doll! Fireworks were great and the food was too! Will definitely be back next year!

  • Liked — The manager is so nice and accomodated my wife's disability with no problem making sure we were ok!
  • Disliked — needs carpet and paint and general repairs
  • Stayed July 2008, traveled as a couple

Booked this room through ---.com and it was very misleading!

We arrived at 8pm and there was a sign on the door to call a number to get into your room. Upon calling that number you got a answering machine, in which no one calls you back. After waiting 40 minutes we finally get a call back to be told we were not staying in the hotel but a house down the road.

What a nightmare!

The door was left unlocked for us to enter. The place had roaches. There were dirty rags on the floor. There were no shades in the windows and thin white curtains. Mind you there was two light posts right in front of the room we were in. So up all night with the light. There was a TV but you couldn't watch it from the snow all over the screen.

The neighbors played music so loud it sounded as if you were in there room until 2am. Parking is not secure as their site states as we had to park on the street in a half hour parking spot, at the location they put us in.

There is no continental breakfast, no internet, no laundry. This site is all lies.

It is not worth $10 a night never mind $60.

Please beware of this hotel. There are several nice ones in the same local area that Hotels.com does not deal with. Consider booking on your own and staying in one of the nicer ones!

  • Liked — Not a thing!
  • Disliked — To many to mention here
  • Tips/Secrets — Do not even bother!

Me & my son stayed at the Thames inn last year & went fishing on the Helcat; we also fished right at the motel. (it was a great time) we met a few locals. (Nice people)
The Thames river is beautiful, Huge Boats- Subs! right next to it is a bait & tackle shop. down the road you can launch boats! only mins from mystic!
if you want to wake up in a hotel/motel & have a view of a Parking lot? stay elsewhere.. if you want to see the thames river<~ this is the place..

Not worth the visit. Anyways, the Thames is more polluted from the Groton side from all the industry--Pfizer, EB, GE. The better view is from New London side.
