“Home away from home”
Reviewed March 23, 2012

Unable to find work in Southern California, I was recruited for a 1 to 2 year assignment in Stratford, Connecticut. I've lived all my life in the Los Angeles area and didn't know what to expect or if I'd be able to hack the New England area.

The Homestead Suites were ideal for me. It wasn't necessarily elegant like a high end hotel, but clean and tidy like I'd like my home to be. I stayed there almost 7 months. The staff became my family away from home.

While I was there, there were two unusual weather conditions: hurricane/tropical storm Irene, that cause flooding and power outages; and an unseasonably early Nor'easter that caused more than half of Connecticut to lose power. Neither caused problems at the Homestead.

There's no room service, but there are several places that deliver food. There's a nearby gym that has free admittance to people staying at the Homestead.

If I had a complaint, it was with the Internet. It may have been a problem with my computer, but the connection speed was pretty slow.

Room Tip: I like the corner rooms in the front of the building. There are smoking and non-smoking rooms.

Thank you for taking the time to review your recent stay at Homestead Shelton - Fairfield County. Given our company's commitment to superior guest service, it was great to read about your positive experience with our staff.

One of the best. We've stayed here for a month. The staffs are all very accommodating seeing to it that we are comfortable and that we do not have any problems in the hotel and their amenities.Even the housekeeping staff are very courteous and sensitive with the needs of their customers. The front desk personnel are gracious especially Miss Julpha and Miss Karen. I will definitely recommend homestead to my friends.Thank you for a wonderful experience.

I stayed at this hotel for almost 2 and 1/2 years. Everyday there was enjoyable. The staff was very friendly and most helpfull. They bend over backwards to accomodate their clients. One of the staff is as great as the other. My room was clean spacious(and I've got alot of stuff) and quiet.
The location is perfect being close to freeways but not too close to have noise and congestion. There are plenty of restaurants around and shopping.
I would not hesitate to stay here another 2 and 1/2 years and then some.

Our stay at Homestead Studios Suites in Shelton, CT was nothing short of amazing. From the time we arrived till the time we departed we were given only the best customer service. The rooms were great especially for the price, you can not beat it, everything was extremely clean and comfortable. The staff was phenomenal, jumping no matter what the need and creating a very comfortable and relaxed environment. I would highly recommend this hotel for anyone looking for a home away from home with an excellent staff. Needless to say we will DEFINITIVELY be returning!

Room Tip: We were on the third floor and heard not a peep!
