“Good value, clean and fine!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2012

This was a good alternative to the $499 a night Mohegan Sun. My husband and I went to a concert at Mohegan Sun and wanted to make a night of it. The rate was reasonable, and while not luxurious, it was clean and seem to be newly updated. We could not get a reservation for a non- smoking room, but they accommodated us to a nonsmoking at check in. The hardwood floor eliminates the scary carpet feature in many lower priced motels. However, it was a little warped in the bathroom. Comfortable and clean! Nice staff.

Room Tip: Go for a superior room.. A little bigger.

We were on our way to Bar Harbor for vacation and wanted to stop by Mystic. We have our dog with us and needed a pet friendly place. The hotel is only 15 min away from Mystic and right off the highway. I was a little worry because of the inexpensive rate (about 1/3 of what Mystic hotel charged and you get a king deluxe room, no pet fee and great cancellation policy), but decide to give it a try base on the consistently good reviews. The room was very clean, very good condition and pretty new. It worked out very well for us and would definitely stay here again if we head to Mystic area again.

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.
