I have stayed at this hotel on at least 5 occassions in the past year. I do so, because I frequently have to fly out of the Bradley Airport (Hart/Springfield airport) early in the morning and I will stay the night right next to the airport to avoid having to get up at 2am to drive in from my home.
I've tried just about all the hotels near the BDL airport and this one has the most buck/bang ratio in my opinion.
Anyway, this hotel in litteraly less than 1 mile from the BDL aiport. Yes, you *could* walk to the airport, but I don't recomend it because there are no sidewalks. And besides, they have a free shuttle that runs early and late.
The hotel is also located in a cluster of restaurants(Subway, Wendys, Ruby's, Friendly's and others), other hotels, gas stations, and several LT parking lots.
I find the property to be well maintained, well-lighted parking lot, and very clean. The neighborhood is quite safe.
They do have a heated pool, but no hot tub.
As for the price, I've usually beeen paying about $105 (AAA rate) after taxes. That is actually on the low-end of the prices if you compare it to the other hotels in that cluster. If want something cheaper, there's a LaQuinta and a Fairfield nearby, but they're not as nice as this Candlewood.
