“Great choice!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 11, 2012

Stayed here 5/5/12. A little hard to find with my GPS. We also heard this from other people checking in at the same time. Front desk staff was very helpful and friendly. Room was clean, beds were very comfortable, and the bathroom was clean.Shuttle service to both casinos was a plus. We used the shuttle to Mohegan which runs hourly, on the hour. The driver was very friendly and cheerful. The lounge/bar in the hotel was nice enough. Breakfast was adequate. The price for this hotel was very affordable. Our only complaint was that we could hear anything going on in the hallway, but it wasn't enough to really bother us. Definitely would recommend staying here for the price, the closeness to a lot of attractions, and especially the convenice of the shuttle if going to the casinos.

This hotel was very nice. We've stayed here once before and it was just as good. Very convenient with the Outback Steak house next door. A Shuttle is available to the Mohegan Sun resort. Lots of shopping malls in the area. Friendly Staff. Clean room. The TV was a little dated but worked well.

Room Tip: Look for bargains for this hotel in the flyers available at the rest areas on the road.

I can not recommend this hotel, in fact it is one of the worst I have stayed in in a long time. The room was not clean, had a bad smoke/mold smell. Even though it was a non smoking room. The fridge in the room made so much noise it was hard to sleep. The hotel was so empty it was a little scary walking the halls. The breakfast was not editable, the cereal was in containers that looked dirty. Stay somewhere else.

We spent the night here on April 14th. I must say that the hotel looked nice... the rooms were nicely done, and obviously recently so. The commons areas were good, as well. The unfortunate part of this is that the rooms smelled badly -- sort of like urine -- and the toilet in the bathroom was probably the smallest I've ever seen in my life. I sprayed the room with air freshener and that seems to have helped, but all night long I felt "dirty". The staff was okay, the room was okay, and it served its purpose.

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying here this past weekend. I am sure we will be back. The room was clean and the bedding very comfortable. The hotel is right off of 95 but we never heard any highway noise in our room, even though we faced the highway. The front desk and management were great. They are friendly and are willing to help. The only downsides were, the pool was closed for maintenance and the breakfast. The pool was not such a big thing and we new before we checked in that it was closed. The breakfast was upgraded to a hot breakfast, but it needed help. I would have liked some yogurt and more fruit, but thats just me. The coffee was good. I would stay here again.

my partner and i stayed in this hotel because we wanted to go to mohegan casino. we pay about 10 dollars for the shuttle bus; they take you and pick you up, so thats good since we didn't have to drive to get to the casino either pay for parking. we have a great time. it was a pleasant place and quiet over all. the room was very neat everything was amazing!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
