My wife and I stayed at the Hawthorn Inn and Suites in Meriden for four nights at the end of April, 2014. The inn is very conveniently located near enough major roads, but not so close as to subject guests to much highway noise. Our accommodations consisted of a single room with queen bed and kitchen, and was big enough to avoid a feeling of claustrophobia when we stayed in. The room appeared newly built or renovated; it was comfortable and adequately appointed. Bear in mind that this is a pretty low-priced establishment (and we got a better deal for staying more than three nights); in that light, it exceeded expectations, though the kitchen was minimally equipped: There was a full-sized refrigerator, microwave, and two-burner cook-top. We were pleased with the new, thick towels -- a rare treat in hotels. Note that as an extended-stay inn, this establishment does not offer (by default, anyway) full room cleaning every day, but we were provided with all we really needed. Hot breakfast (with scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, bread, indifferent bagels, a toaster, a Belgian-waffle maker among other things) is supplied from six to nine in the morning; the breakfast room can get crowded.
The staff was uniformly friendly and helpful. This inn is neither luxurious nor a dream resort, and doesn't pretend to be. Given the low cost, it exceeded expectations; my ratings are made with that in mind. I'd happily visit it again for a similar purpose.
