This hotel is great for families. We booked a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom place. We ended up in 141, which is the building furthest out from the road, right on the water.
Room: The room was a bit rundown, but the size and layout made it perfect. The bedrooms are at opposite ends of the large/long living room. The living room had a sofa (very uncomfortable), coffee table, and television (and working fireplace!), and the kitchen was pretty well equipped and there was a large dining table. There is also a wonderful balcony for having lunch and/or dinner. (Rundown defined: when we arrived, the kitchen light wasn't working and the master bedroom sink wasn't draining, but a quick phonecall fixed these issues. In addition, there were obvious marks of where things used to be - as in fixtures had been moved and there were holes that had been filled over [or not] and painted over [or not])
Parking: Included! (An amazing deal, we learned)
Location: The location also cannot be beat. It is on Central Thames Street. We walked to our sailing camp (JWorld, highly recommended) at Commercial Wharf every morning, and then to find dinner either at the grocery (Stop and Shop on Bellvue) or the Lobster Shack (down near the Marriot) every evening.
Service: We stayed 5 nights. We interacted with the staff very infrequently. The welcome was ok, warm but not over the top and not very welcoming. Each time we called the front desk (about the kitchen light, the bathroom sink, etc), we got a woman named Judy (I think) who was VERY friendly, personable, and remembered us from one day to the next. The response time was very good, and we were satisfied.
To Do: I added this section so I can share my favorites with you -- walk or run the Cliffwalk (evening is best for photos because of the orientation of the sun), Anthony's Seafood in Middletown for a casual lunch/dinner out, Lobster Shack for cook your own, Farmers Market on Wednesdays.
