“Great Hotel Near Casinos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

The Best Western Olympic Inn is close to Mohegan Sun Casino and offers a free shuttle there on Friday and Saturday nights. This is quite convenient if you like to party, but not drive back to your hotel afterward...and Carlos, the driver, is very nice. As for the hotel itself, it is quiet, clean and comfortable. The staff is very accommodating and helpful and the price is reasonable. It also has a great pool, sauna, and hot tub. It also offers a business center with free computer access. I will stay here again the next time there is an event at Mohegan Sun Casino.

My wife had the pleasure of staying here for her 50th class reunion. Being from the area we are very familiar with places to stay. We had an outstanding stay and when ever we are in the Groton area this is where we will stay.

We needed a hotel for one night. We got a reasonable internet rate. Granted, this is not a luxury resort; but, had all we needed for one night.

Front desk gal was very nice and helpful. Called down from room asking for a cab. She took care of it and called with an estimated time. She always would speak when we walked by. no problems with check in or check out.

The room was very basic. It did have a small refridge and microwave...nice!!! Plenty of water pressure in the shower. Room was clean and quiet. No complaints.

Location was perfect for where we needed to go. Easy access to restaurants, shops and local attractions.

Great location...Very close to highways, gas station, stores, restaurants. 2 minutes from New London and 5 minutes from Mystic. The exterior is simple and neat. Parking was free. There was no one at the front desk upon arrival but there was a plastic doorbell affixed to a block of wood on the counter with a sign to push the button for service. We thought it was unprofessional, but we rang and someone appeared in 5 minutes. He was very pleasant. We requested a map of the area, but there were none available. There were slightly burned cookies available on a side table.
The room was large enough, tidy, had a nice flatscreen TV and WiFi. We checked for bedbugs and saw no signs...that was of critical importance! (We also checked www.bedbugregistry.com and there were no reports). The sheets were clean and the bed was comfortable. I used Lysol wipes on the remote, phone and doorknobs which were filthy. The heating/air unit was old and loud, but it worked. The rug in front of the mini fridge was sticky and spongy...yuck! (Did not use the fridge or coffee maker.) The bathroom knob was coming loose, but it did lock. The bathroom ceiling had mold and the laminate countertop was worn and chipped. There are minimal supplies. You'll need to request more if you are traveling with company. Oddly, the tissues were secured to the wall in the bathroom. One would need to get out of bed in the middle of the night for a tissue.
The complimentary breakfast was a buffet in the attached restaurant. A harried waitress brought coffee and juice. She brought me the wrong beverage and spilled it on me but I didn't say anything. She was overheard talking about how overly burdened she was. We could've served ourselves drinks, and it would have been faster and more pleasant. The food and the selection was disappointing. Overall, I'd say the hotel is basic, could be cleaner, and a bit overpriced for the amenities and area.

My wife and I were pleased with our stay and would definitely recommend this location for anyone looking for a place to stay in Groton, CT. We were pleased to know that the shuttle service to the casino was extended to include Sunday of the holiday weekend.

We decided last minute to take a trip to Mystic. This hotel was reasonably priced compared to other hotels in the area, however still a little pricey in comparison to other hotels I've stayed in in similar tourist areas.

The room was clean and quiet from outside noise. The people at the front were very nice and helpful. The pool was nice sized and clean (bring your room towels, none offered at the pool). The free breakfast in the restaurant was small compared to others I've been too. Just eggs, bacon, sausage patties, frozen french toast and toast and cereal.

The beds were really firm, but the pillows super soft.

There were some mechanical things that maybe need to be fixed up. Anything mechanical was VERY noisy. The AC worked well, but was so noisy. The toilet was noisy as well. The doors creaked. The elevator sounded like it was dying.

But really, for an overnight stay, it was good. As long as it's clean, I'm happy.

Exterior was great, check in staff superb. Very friendly, we selected this hotel as part of the Harley-Davidson partnership. First hotel that's ever offered the opportunity to wash our motorcycles at check in without us asking first - "we get the hoses and towels ready, wash area is to the left of the lobby".
