I've stayed at some of the hotels in the area and would easily recommend this new property over the others. The location is very near Mohegan Sun casino (less than 5 minutes by car), and all the area shopping.

Our king room was cleverly laid out, with a living area (1 small sofa, desk, and soft seating chair) and partially separated bedroom area. Two flat screen TV's, a small refrigerator / microwave / coffee area, iPod dock that actually worked. Free WiFi. Good parking, ample breakfast, shares parking lot with TGIF if you need a nightcap. TGIF also provides room service until a certain time. Indoor pool with two hot tubs and small fitness room adjoining.

I give this hotel five stars against price and expectations but would note a few shortcomings that the operators should consider. The AC/heat blower in the room was far too strong for how close it is to the bed, even on "low". I left the unit off since the window could be opened slightly and there was no substantial outside noise. Inner shower curtain liner should be a thinner plastic since it doesn't stay away from your body even with the bowed curtain bar. The large contemporary cube floor lamp in the living area was too bright, almost blinding. Use the next bulb wattage down.

this hotel was very clean with modern decor. hotel staff was very accomodating and nice. beds were nice and plush as well. the only bad thing i can say about the place is that the breakfast area wasn't quite big enough for the amount of people staying at the hotel. they also could have used more than one toaster and microwave (which you needed to heat up the breakfast sandwiches). overall, very good hotel.

This hotel was very nice, clean and had friendly staff. The breakfast area was nicely furnished and had lots of seating available.
However, the breakfast food was not that good. Firstly, they advertise a Jimmy Dean's breakfast sandwich. I unfortunately assumed that meant a fresh sandwich. I was mistaken, they have prepackaged Jimmy Dean breakfast foods that you have to warm up in the microwave. Needless to say, they were dry and unappetizing. They also had a waffle iron, which would have been nice, except that you are not allowed to make them yourself. They have a kitchen helper who makes them for you, and she doesn't make them with enough batter, so you really get half a waffle.
Also, space in the bedroom was okay, however, we rented a king size bedroom with a rollaway bed for our daughter. The rollaway bed was very nice and the size of a twin mattress!!! The only problem with this was, it didn't fit anywahere in our room without one of us having to crawl over the bed to get to and from the bathroom. They didn't exactly plan the room to accomodate the rollaway.
Overall, I would definately stay here again, but I wouldn't count on the breakfast or use the rollaway bed again.

I found this hotel on TrpAdvisor and it met all my expectations. Don't let the dull exterior fool you. This hotel is clean and modern on the inside. The room and bathroom were spotless and the sheets were fresh and clean. The breakfast was good considering that it was free. The staff was helpful and friendly. Overall, it was an excellent stay.

We have always had good luck with Fairfield inns, and this was no exception! Hotel common areas were nicely decorated, and clean. Rooms were comfortable and also very clean. Two hot tubs in pool area. The usual great breakfast.
