We had a lovely, large room at the Hilton Garden Inn. The property is very well kept. It is a five minute drive to the casino but feels further away as far as quiet and comfort is concerned. Would definitely stay here again!

Room Tip: We did not want to be on the first floor near the pool for more peace and quiet.

this is a new hotel that Foxwoods Casinotold us about when they were sold out. Other than having to figure out how the room key worked, everything was smooth and efficient. There is a shuttle service to the casino. Room was large and inviting.

Stayed at the Hilton on Saturday night, Foxwoods was sold out. The hotel is brand new and looks really nice. The staff were all very friendly and helpful. Certainly made us feel right at home. The property is 1/2 mile from the casino. From hotel parking lot to casino valet took 3 minutes, which makes this property a great alternative to staying on site if no rooms available, or is $300-$500 night at Foxwoods.

Rooms were fair sized and very clean. Bed was comfortable enough. Only complaint that I have is that there is a fan in the bathroom which ran all the time--including overnight. There is no switch to turn this fan off. My brother stayed at the hotel last night and experienced the same noise. It may not be an issue for some, but for those of us who are sensitive to noise when trying to get to sleep this could create some frustration.

Regardless, the hotel is nice, the staff friendly, and the rates fair. Plus, you really can't beat the location.

The Hilton Garden Inn is a great hotel. Everyone there was extremely friendly including the shuttle drivers that took us to the casino regularly. The hotel was clean and had a nice appearance. I highly recommend it to anyone that visits the Foxwoods area!

Was a great hotel in a great location. Spent one night in a 2 queen bed room. The shuttle too Foxwoods was fantastic. No wait and pick up was just the same. It was like door to door service.
Hotel was clean and the employees were polite. Can not ask more from a brand new hotel. Do wish that breakfast had been included as it was not really the best I have ever had but it was fine for eggs, toast and waffles.

Like to visit Mohegan sun and stay over as its a long drive
Recently started staying at the Hampton inn in Groton but when I did a search found this hotel cheaper for the night and since both a drive from Mohegan gave it a try
As I really just sleep there can't grade much this visit
Arrived around midnight after playing
Easy check in And two bottles of water
Oh yeah noticed a nice outdoor patio on way in
Hotel was clean and smelled new
Got rid room a king good amount of room but just me so all good either way
Took shower good water pressure and temp
Then looked for USB charger for phone like at Hampton but no luck had to plug into TV and leave TV on all night
Got in bed and wall unit too noisy finally figured out how to turn off
Bed was comfortable so good rest before back to casino
Overall a good hotel but unless its cheaper again I'll be back in Groton

We booked this room for a night Easter weekend, expected it might be packed but it was quite the opposite. The staff was very friendly when we arrived, and we were even greeted by the general manager. The hotel has only been open for 5 weeks, so everything is new and fresh. Room was larger than expected and the beds were incredibly comfortable, better than some 5-star hotels. They also offer a free shuttle to the casino - it runs every couple hours until 4pm, then it goes every half hour until the early morning. They don't really stick to the 30-minute schedule, but since the casino is only a mile away, you won't wait long. If you're going to use the shuttle off-hours, be sure to check with the front desk to find out when it's running. Overall this was a much better value and experience for the money than the casino hotel would have given us, so we were incredibly happy.

Look for the free pink lemonade and cookies when you check in - both are amazing! The small bar/restaurant in the hotel is lovely, and they have a happy hour which was perfect for a nice drink after we checked in and got settled.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the 4th floor - the high, sloped ceiling was a nice touch.
