Granddaughter had a Hockey game in the Cromwell early Sunday morning, so we decided it would be best for all of us to find a local hotel and go down the night before. We live a good 2 hours away! Found the room on Priceline using the hidden choice based on star level and price. Went with the attitude of don't expect anything great for the price paid, we just need a place to sleep! Well I will tell you that we were very happy and satisfied with our rooms. We got 2 rooms, 1 king for both my husband and I, and our daughter and her family had 2 double beds. The rooms are exceptionally clean and well maintained, both rooms had a frig, microwave, and coffee pots. Staff is great, very helpful, responsive to requests! Being pillow people requested extra pillows for both room and less then 10 minutes later they were delivered with a smile! Have stayed at high end hotels and was treated better here then at some of the more expensive ones. They don't offer the extra's of pool, bar, or restaurant but most of our travels we never use those things either. There are plenty of restaurants within less then a mile from hotel. Very convenient to the highway and were we were 7 miles from the local arena! Our Granddaughter will have a few more games down that way over the winter and will stay again. So very pleasantly surprised at how comfortable, clean, the hotel is and how accommodating the staff is to their guests. Check in and out were very quick. Highly recommended to those looking for a no frills, but clean and comfortable hotel. Just remember it is like the old Motel type of rooms. But it is well cared for and will stay again. Offer free breakfast, but again the usual quick grab and go. They have cereal, juice's, coffee, muffins etc. Go get a good nights sleep and save a load of money!!
