“Great Hotel for the price...”
Reviewed July 20, 2007

Great Hotel for the price...
This is my 3rd time to this place and I really enjoyed staying here. Rooms are very clean, swimming pool was great and price is one of the lowest in this town. Will stay again...
Great for families. Good swimming pool and not too much smoke.
Service is AAA rated.

I must say, I have heard a few negative remarks about the Iron Horse Inn, however, since the new management took over in Feb of 2007, my stay has been quite comfortable and relaxing...I travel to Simsbury often this hotel is convient and fairly priced. The mangament has really turned the place around and they are professional and extremely considerate and kind, they want imput and welcome any suggestions to make your stay even more comfortable then it already is, I recommend the Iron Horse Inn.

The hotel had only a twin bed and a double bed even though two queen beds were requested. The shower had only cold water. one faucet on the bathroom sink did not work. the balcony was roped off, but it overlooked a covered pool that looked like a swamp so no one would ever want to sit out there. Money had to be paid up front when checking in with no breakdown as to room costs and taxes. No checkout documentation was given. A terrible experience entirely.

We stayed at the Iron Horse for two nights July 31 & Aug 1. The clerk charged us up front for both nights. The room was not very clean. The air conditioner barely worked as the grill and filter were covered with a thick layer of dust. Ours was a non-smoking room but the the odor in the halls made you try to hold your breath. Not only the smell of cigarette smoke but something else one would not want to imagine. There was a small refrigerator but the door would not close due to the ice build up in the freezer. There was an inground pool but it had not been opened. This would have been a great asset, especially in the summer heat. We checked the beds carefully for critters but found only stains on the mattress.

One good point was that there was plenty of parking. There obviously were not many guests except for those in the room above us who let their kids run and jump until after 11PM.

  • Liked — nothing
  • Disliked — noise in the room above us, dirty, air comditioning didn't work well, uncomfortable beds, dirty mattresses, ...
  • Tips/Secrets — Stay somewhere else
