Standard lower quality hotel with heat and ac unit by front door. At least heat worked as it was cold that night. It seemed somewhat difficult to get it just right temperature.

There was hair on a towel, the tub wall was plastic and grout was black from mold. The decorations were somewhat ugly.

The beds were very soft, maybe too soft? The comforters did not seem clean.

There was a table and chairs, which was nice for working on laptop. I could not get a descent wifi signal so had to resort to tethering for a few minutes.

The breakfast was fine for the quality of the hotel. The seating area is small, so make sure to get there early enough.

The shuttle service to the casino was fine, but the driver didn't seem to happy or friendly despite a tip given.

This is basically a motel with a little pizazz on the exterior. Definitely pricey for what you get, but I suppose it's the going rate due to its close proximity to Foxwoods and the RI beaches.

Staff at the front desk was very pleasant and accomodating and we enjoyed the full breakfast in the morning. Nice that they hand out fresh flowers and yummy cookies upon arrival.

Thank you for your kind words, especially those about our team at the Front Desk. In the interest of full disclosure, we do not have fresh flowers every day, but we do offer freshly baked chocolate chip cookies every evening. We look forward to having you as our guest again soon.

This was my third trip down to Foxwoods. I knew from experience that I wanted to find a place that included transportation back and forth. The shuttle service alone made Hilltop a great choice...and also the fact that you can book the room for one night...unlike their neighbor hotel with transportation that requires a minimum two night stay on the weekends.
I planned a trip for four but ran into a snag when one more friend wanted to join and the room had a max limit. Knowing that we couldn't afford two rooms, I got in touch with the general manager who was so accomodating and worked with me to find a solution.
The staff was super friendly and the small extra touches made this hotel a great choice...complimentary cheese and crackers at check in as well as roses for all the ladies.
The rooms were clean and decent and I liked the fact that all the doors open to the outside versus a hotel corridor.
All in all, it was definitely a good choice for us. The customer service was wonderful! I'm not one to ever take the time to write reviews which tells you that this hotel was worth it. I will definitely be staying with Hilltop again!

Room Tip: Bottom level rooms are super close to your car

My wife and I stayed her just for a night away. We had no destination and just picked a place at random. The only criterion was it had to be under $250 and less then a 3 hour drive. I was pleasantly surprised at this motel. The staff was incredibly friendly and rooms were comfortable. Very outdated, however the pride that was taken in maintaining the room was very evident. Although we had no plans to go to Foxwoods the free shuttle was too good to pass up. It was on time and the driver very professional. If we are Geocaching in this part of the state again, we will definitely look into staying here again

THis place was incredible for someone who just wanted a place to sleep it off after a night at Foxwoods. Everything was clean, neat, and in good repair. My major selling point was the free shuttle service to Foxwoods (which runs every half hour), and it was all it promised to be. The shuttle was on time on both trips, it's only 10 minutes away from the casion's front door, and it was FREE! Also the service was great. I called to ask for an iron (there aren't any in the rooms) and in 5 minutes it was at my door, ready to go. Everybody was all smiles, as though they truly took pride in their hotel. Add to this the free continental breakfast and the very affordable rate, and you've got an all-around winner. Save yourself a couple hundred dollars and stay here instead of at the casino.

it was clean - the service was good but.....it's really just a cleaned up motel, that needs a little more clean up on the exterior! Some rooms tough to get to if you have a lot of luggage, (thankfully we did not..), you have to climb icky stairs to get to the 2nd floor then trudge to your room. Shuttle was not great. Okay getting to Foxwoods but getting home was rough. We watched 4 shuttles come from the hotel next door while we waited and waited for the one from Hilltop. Breakfast is NOT deluxe! It's typical but they didn't even have the usual fruit that other hotels offer. We ended up going out to breakfast. Also, parking lot is not very well lit... The mixing valve in the shower was not working so we had to take a very low pressure shower. But, it was clean! Also...could not control heat, either way too hot or too cold. A little noisy, (we now know way too much about the couple in the next room). No fridge, no iron/ironing board, (pretty standard in most hotels now). We won't go back but, IT WAS CLEAN!
