Friendly service and an unbeatable rate at this hotel near the casinos
Budget travelers take note. A little ways off of Interstate 95 at exit 88, the Flagship Inn and Suites provides comfortable rooms and friendly service for an affordable price. Many of the area attractions are nearby, including the Mystic Seaport where the Museum of America and the Seas is always enlightening. Olde Mistick Village is also within 15 minutes of the hotel, with shops and restaurants presented in a fun, historical light. The Flagship Inn and Suites is near several restaurants and invites guests to use the on-site fitness center.
Highlights
  • Near USS Submarine base
  • Popcorn for sale in the lobby
  • Free continental breakfast
Rooms
All the standard comforts and amenities are offered at the Flagship Inn and Suites. Enjoy a free USA Today newspaper each morning, perfect reading to pair up with the complimentary breakfast (from 7:30 a.m. - 10 a.m., times subject to change). All guest rooms include a microwave, a refrigerator with freezer, and a coffee-maker. Televisions with cable channels, including HBO, are also standard.
Features

Stay close to the action without breaking the bank at this comfortable and convenient hotel. Located just a short way off of Interstate 95 at exit 88, the Flagship Inn and Suites is within 15 minutes of attractions in Mystic, area casinos, U.S. Coast Guard Academy and Connecticut College. Spend the day browsing the shops in Olde Mistick Village or take the kids to the Mystic Aquarium for a fascinating look at life under the waves. The Museum of America and the Sea can teach the whole family about our relationship to the ocean from atop the waves.

 

For a bit of glitz and glamour head out to nearby Foxwoods Resort and Casino or Mohegan Sun. Shopping, dining, gaming, theater, and more, these two have it all. Whatever the day holds, be sure to start it off with the complimentary breakfast offered at the Flagship Inn and Suites each morning from 7:30 a.m. - 10 a.m. Even better, guests can follow up with a workout at Power House Gym. Ask the front desk about complimentary day passes.

Not that great

The blankets were stained and worn. The location was really good. Just a little ways off of the interstate. They only offered shampoo and soap, not the usual conditioner and hair covering. Overall it was barebones and for the price was just OK. The walls were thin. You could hear thru the walls and every time there was a flush. The air conditioner worked well.

Would not recommend

When I booked this room- I made sure I clicked on non-smoking. Not only do I hate the smell of cigarette smoke, I am also pregnant, so this was important to me. My husband and I were really just looking for a place to sleep after a show at Foxwoods. We were not looking for anything special, just clean and relatively comfy…however when we arrived, the first room we were given smelled so horrible of smoke and had an ashtray present in the room. When we went back to the desk, the girl tried to help us and brought a can of air freshener into the room and said this was all she could do. We asked for a room switch, since we had requested a smoke free room, and she told us that since we reserved online, there is no guarantee for a smoke free room. She did, however, give us another room 2 doors down, which smelled SLIGHTLY less, but still smelled of smoke. The best way I can describe this room is simply by using the word skeevy. It just felt dirty. The carpet was gross, stains on the chairs, cigarette burns in the blankets, paint chipping on the walls, toilet paper holder falling off wall, toilet seat chipped and gross, honestly, just dirty. And I'm not a picky person. When you feel the need to inspect the sheets for bugs and other gross stuff before you turn in for the night, there is a problem. In addition, they only gave us 2 (one for each of us) incredibly flat uncomfortable pillows, so I woke up about 10 times during the night with a crick in my neck. Also, the A.C. whirred and hummed this unnatural broken sound and it was hard to fall asleep. All in all, would NEVER return…we couldn't wait to just get out of there.

Flagship Takes You To Foxwoods

The cheapest motel within 20 minutes of Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods casinos. The motel itself is rather ordinary, but at an average cost of $44/night for a two week stay, I can't recommend it enough for those avid poker players who want a cheap, extended stay to play at Foxwoods. The rooms come with a mini-fridge and a microwave oven, plus a regular coffee maker. The motel is 2 minutes from Walmart and Stop and Shop, so you can cut your cost even more by buying your food at the market and eating in. I wouldn't recommend this motel for a family, but for a single or a couple who are in the area for relaxation at a pool or spa, then it's value is hard to beat.

looking for in expensive saturday night hotel

girl friend was upset I booked at a place she wasn't familiar with so I got an ear full. her comments were that the place was a lot better than expected and after listening to her continually complain the day before constantly about booking at this place I'll give them a decent rating .for what it was a place to sleep take a shower and stay for about 12 hours it did the trick. the continental breakfast was a joke but it was better than nothing. The office was closed on late night from 1 am to 5 am unfortunately we could have used more pillows when we arrived home late but couldn't get them. But overall I was very happy that it wasn't terrible or I'd still be listening to my girl complain about it.

Nice quick stay

The hotel sure is lacking in amenities, especially since their complimentary continental breakfast constist of free coffee, but it is a nice inexpensive stay, not too far from the casinos
