“Excellent rating for honesty & location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2012

When I called to make a reservation the desk clerk advised me the hotel was in the process of renovation & described what was already completed & what was in the process. And that the room above ours was being worked on from noon to 4pm.
That was honest & acceptable to us. We appreciated the information.
The portion that was renovated was the flooring in our room. Loved it. Only under the bed was carpet. The rest was vinyl wood looking tile. How perfect from the front door to the bath area.
The location is absolutely lovely. The hotel is like being in a magical forest. Quiet & beautiful.
Close the both casinos, restaurants & tourist attractions.

Hotel was conviently located right off the highway and secluded enough that the highway noise did not bother you. Rooms were clean and modern. Beds were not that great. Check in was fast and easy. Would definetly stay here again. Located close to shopping and restaurants.

The Red Roof Inn "Mystic" of New London is a good buy, a quiet place to stay, clean and sensibly furnished. It offers the normal amenities of hotels of its type: small bathrooms with towels not too thick, plastic glasses, weak (though functional) internet service. But my hat is off to it for doing everything a hotel must do rather well and for a good price. The room was scrupulously clean, and refreshingly almost free of carpet. The floors have recently been covered with a wood laminate, and so all of the allergens and dust that carpets harbor are gone, gone, gone. The bed was very comfortable, and had excellent reading lights above the headboard, another great feature. The room included a well-designed desk. Although it is very near to Interstate 95, the rooms were very quiet. A very good package for the price.

My fiance and I were looking for a place to stay close to mohegan sun for one night. We booked the red roof inn because it was cheaper than the other hotels and it is close to mohegan sun.
(10 minute drive) We were pleasanty surprised by the room. The room was clean and the bed was very comfy! Overall, had a great time!

The Red Roof Inn is a somewhat typical motel, with all of the rooms opening onto outdoor hallways. The room was a decent size and the carpet and fixtures seemed recently replaced. Our bathroom and room were clean and the housekeeping staff were friendly and accommodating. The shower head was great, but the tub didn't drain well. I think the drains can't keep up with the new shower heads. The air conditioner worked well. They do allow pets, which we appreciated.

While the rooms are decidedly decent for a two star hotel, there were times when I felt a bit uneasy. For instance, when we arrived mid-day there was a man drinking and smoking in the middle of the parking lot. There was a couple next to him that were working on a motorcycle and continued to do so into the early evening, also drinking (though at least they tried to cover up the bottle labels with napkins). There was an unusual number of men hanging out around the parking lots in the evening and on the outdoor hallways. While I felt comfortable here, I'm not sure I would have had I been travelling alone.

Many of the staff here are great and are clearly trying hard, but some of the front desk staff were rude and/or it felt like you were interrupting their phone or text conversation if you needed something.

A mixed bag.....great room but iffy ambiance might be the way to sum it up. We paid about $70 a night. I wouldn't pay more for this room.

We chose the Red Roof because we were concerned that lodging in Mystic would be harder to find and may require a two night minimum. The Red Roof allows a one night stay and one can cancel by 6pm on the day of check-in without incurring a penalty; this cancellation policy worked for us because my mother had a health issue that may have necessitated cancelling her room.

My husband and I were in one room and my mother was in the adjoining room; the connecting door worked well for us and we were happy that we were able to reserve these rooms. Both rooms had microwaves and refrigerators; room rate plus taxes/fees came to about $105.00 per room for a night's stay.

Our room had a handicapped accessible bathroom, so be aware that this type of bathroom's sink does not have a large countertop attached, unlike the traditional sink and counterspace that is outside of the bathroom with toilet and combination bathtub/shower. The shower adjusts between stationary nozzle and flexible hose and one can shower standing up or sitting down on the seat.

We noticed that there was a stale odor of cigarettes in our room and our door handle was not working properly, and were thankful that the front desk staff assured us that the manager will be informed; we did not want to have a cleaning fee on our bill.

All in all, quite adequate for a night's stay.

This appears to be either a new or recently renovated hotel with very clean and spacious rooms, large flat screen TV, and nice bathroom amenities. The front staff I had were young and anxious but are trying the best they can to learn the ropes. At $91 (tax included) for a Friday night, this was actually the best deal in the area when I was there. It would have been great to get this at some of the rates people list below, but it was still worth it compared to the other choices I had at last minute.
