Good location, good hotel

Location is excellent for I95 travelers - only one minute away from exit. The staff is not overly friendly. Hotel is well maintained. There is a Japanese restaurant and a burger type restaurant right across the street. The latter offers nice atmosphere, good food and very friendly staff!

Clean and Friendly Hotel

This hotel was a great stop off on our way through Connecticut. The public areas of the hotel and the room were bright and clean. The staff was friendly and happy to accommodate any requests, like forgotten toiletries. For the price, a lot of features were included- full breakfast, internet, pool, small workout room. I would stay here again if I was in the area.

1 night stay for business

The hotel definitely needs to improve the insulation of the walls between rooms. You can easily hear your neighbors conversations and/or the TV. I was very surprised to hear more noise coming the from the neighbors, rather than the outside Route 1 and I-95. Lastly, for the continental breakfast - that was the worst orange juice I have ever had. Sure, the machine that dispenses it was not properly set up, but I took one sip of the "pure sugar" drink and that was enough for me to give this place a three star.

Holiday Inn Express BRANFORD-NEW HAVEN

I've stayed at this hotel a few times. It is very clean, the staff is nice, free coffee and tea are available all day, and they have a nice little breakfast in the morning. There is also a pool and hot tub which I don't use, but my family does. Also you get free wifi.

Suited our needs perfectly

Used this hotel to visit Yale. Although it was 8 miles away, it was easy to travel to. Its' location provided a secure feeling. The indoor pool and exercise room were nice, and it had one of the nicest breakfasts I have seen. Towels were fluffy and linens lovely. Room in excellant condition, A/C/heater quiet and effective. The staff was friendly and helpful. My only negative was that the walls seemed a little "thin". It was generally quiet though, and I carry earplugs anyway. A great value.

Excellent Accommodations for the price

Great price for a quiet, clean hotel room. The description doesn't tell you that it does have a pool, spa, and a small gym. I asked for an early check-in (12 noon) because I was flying in on a redeye flight and the staff was very accommodating. The only weird thing was that the curtains don't close to give you a dark room. They only go 1/4 way closed on each side. Annoying if you want a dark room to sleep in or some privacy if you're on the bottom floor in the back of the hotel. I would recommend the hotel for the price and location.
