We also stayed here because the rooms at Foxwoods were out of our budget for the night. We did a little research and the price was decent. When we arrived, it was early evening. The staff at the desk was polite but nothing out of the ordinary. The person explained the shuttle but we figured it was easier to park and leave when we wanted than to wait for the shuttle and have to leave early.
We got a room around the back of the hotel so we parked out back. No security on the exterior door, it didn't latch and no room key was required to enter. The room was extremely dark, which made it look old and dingy, which it really wasn't. The wallpaper in a few spots was looking old too.
The bed wasn't comfortable for me, but Jack liked it well enough. The linens weren't very nice at all. They felt old and worn. The television didn't get very many channels.
The bathroom appeared clean but the whole place seemed to have an old feel to it. Maybe it was the decor or maybe it was just the lighting. The shower was a huge inconvenience. It was the smallest shower stall I have been in, even compared to a cruise ship shower. It was crowded and there was no place to put toiletries for the shower. The shower head was stationery and it was just a pain to shower.
I think I will try the Garden Inn up the road next time. This hotel just needs some help.
