We stayed here for one night because of it's proximity to E. Hartford for a college football game we were attending. It is located "right" off I-91 but is not visible from the highway nor are there any signs directing you to it's location. Confusing. What a strange place this is. Outside the place looks kind of derelict - it looks and feels like it's a small industrial park that decided to try it's hand at being a motel/meeting center. Check in went fine however we had to go back to the desk b/c our keys didn't work. Big room, creaky King bed, basic cable, relatively clean, nothing really out of the ordinary per the room with the exception that there were really only two lamps and it was really dark. My parents had also booked down the hall. They had a flat-screen TV and room-sized fridge. We didn't. We would have liked to have the convenience of a fridge. The bathroom was clean with the barest minimum of amenities which was fine b/c we were only staying the night. The odd thing was that the toilet paper was affixed to the front of the sink letting the TP get splattered with sink water. No fan in the bathroom either. All of the first-floor rooms have sliding doors that should open towards the parking lots. Ours didn't open at all and my parent's had a wooden stake keeping it from being ripped out of the lock and track. Coming back from our event around 12:30 am we found that our keys didn't work again. We walked back to the front desk and there was no one there and no sign as to how we could contact someone. We waited/searched for several minutes with another guest who was waiting to pay for some mid-night snacks until the night clerk appeared a few minutes later. It wasn't obvious that anyone was on duty. A simple "Back in 5 minutes" sign would have been great. We didn't use the pool but it looked nice for an indoor pool. They provide you with a Continental breakfast, also strange; a tub of hard-boiled eggs in the fridge that you, and your fellow guest's children, can help yourselves to. The do-it-yourself waffle machine was decent but if I were hygienically-sensitive I'd pass. Another thing that made this place a bit odd and creepy was that there seemed to be transient-looking people who lived here. Just a strange vibe all around. Check it out!
