Let me establish my credibility. Having over 10 years experience in the hotel industry, I know what extraordinary customer service is. I also have seen and stayed in great facilities. West Hartford Inn is not in any of these categories. I was very much disappointed with my 2 day stay to visit family.
First, West Hartford Inn was hard to find due to poor signage, location and abutting a restaurant. The breakfast was disgraceful - tiny bagels were hard, bread dry and not much variety. Breakfast room was located at the end of the second floor hallway. Using the elevator was a joke because the lights indicating the floors were broken. I had to rely on the number at the door edge when the door opened.
Bathroom was a 1960's style with shower doors that had mold growing inside the ledge. Lobby was very small and leads right into the parking garage.
Two of the front desk personnel were great - Hitesh and Terri - thanks; however, Mancusio? brought the plunger to me and didn't even do the plunging. The nice guy that I am, I plunged my own... He was helpful in a sense but didn't do the job completely! Room was clean and well maintained.
Overall, you get what you pay for; however, I will avoid this hotel like the plague - sorry.
