“Great convenience for the price”
Reviewed February 18, 2014

The 15 minute free shuttle ride to Mohegan Sun may be the best feature of this hotel, along with staff who are caring and very helpful. The free breakfast buffet was fairly simple, but featured eggs, french toast, home fries, crispy bacon, sausage and assorted other items. The rooms have a small fridge and a microwave, which was helpful. Rooms are clean and while the lobby is a bit dated, it is well kept and tidy. The only disappointment was the steam room/sauna was not working at all, the hot tub wasn't all that hot, and the indoor pool was not heated. However, the extremely friendly staff made up for these minor disappointments.

The good: front desk very accomodating, went out of their way to give us a early check in of 12:30pm. Very clean rooms, though outdated. Great breakfast buffet at onsite restaurant, better than the BW Cristata Inn which is more expensive. Hotel shuttle to casino, just make sure you reserve seats! The bad: Hot tub could have been hotter, the heated indoor pool was NOT heated, was ice cold. The sauna/steam rooms didn't work. Should have hair dryer in pool bathrooms.

We will stay at this hotel again. We were in town for a concert at Mohegan Sun. The distance was only 10-15 min. The room was very nice and the on site resturante and bar added to our stay. The complimentary breakfast in the morning topped off a wonderful experience overall. Hotel was clen, professional and the bed comfortable. Very affordable price.

Rooms are clean, bar lounge is great, restaurant is very good. The pool area could use a face lift, not bad, the Jacuzzi was clean, jets were under powered. Staff at front desk was great, bar staff was great, as was restaurant staff.

If you are staying in the area to go to the casino's or visit Mistic Seaport then this is the place to stay. Great staff, newly renovated rooms. The front desk staff is very conscience and attentive to all your needs. the rooms are comfortable and have a microwave and refrigerator. I have stayed here many times and will continue to do so in the future. they also offer free transportation to and from The Mohegan Sun Casino on the weekends and holiday's

We recently stayed overnight for a trip to Mohegan Sun for New Year's Eve. After seeing the rooms at Mohegan Sun going for $699/night and other nearby hotels sold out, we decided to stay at the Best Western in Groton, and were very happy with our decision. The hotel had one of the more affordable rates around, under $150 for the holiday night, and included free shuttles to and from Mohegan Sun from 4pm to 4am, running every 15 minutes or so. The other hotels I checked with had hourly shuttles, charging anywhere from $10-15 per person on top of the room rates, which were $160-$250. The Best Western also included buffet breakfast in the morning, and a late checkout of 3pm. I was initially hesitant about booking after reading previous reviews, but the the hotel was clean, the staff very friendly, and most of the fitness equipment were in working order. The showers had good pressure. My only complaint was that the pool floor could use a cleaning as it felt gritty. As for the restaurant, we ate dinner there before going to the casino as we feared long lines, but in the future would have preferred to wait elsewhere.
