My wife and I stayed here twice on a long weekend trip from Maine to West Virginia. The first evening we were arriving very late (1AM) mid-week and had no problem with check-in, and noted the room was extremely quiet and clean. Front desk service was good, both on the telephone and in person, but it was difficult to hear the clerk due to the security glass and loud ice machine in the lobby/kitchen area.
The hotel is in a very convienent location, just a few minutes off of I84, one exit north on I91. Easy on, easy off. The neighborhood is primarily businesses (car dealers) and is not as bad as I expected being very close to Hartford center. The property is fully fenced and has excellent lighting and parking.
On the trip back we stayed on a Sunday evening. Service was equally good, and the room was again clean and comfortable with good hot showers. I was pleased the older TV had ESPN2, so I could watch a specific auto racing event that evening over ordered in dinner from a local italian restaurant.
This Super 8 did have a few minor issues, one of the light fixtures had a missing bulb, one had a loose switch, and on the second night the tub drain grate was unattached and loose. I mention these because they could be safety issues if travelling with children. The staff did make note of these issues for maintenence. The ice machine was also loud, both in the lobby and also in our room (adjoining wall) on the second night. There is a lobby computer for internet access, as well as free Wifi (we did not use the wifi) but connection can be spotty due to weather as they have satellite link.
If you are a business traveller or couple needing a clean, safe room for a very reasonable price this Super 8 should top your list.
