A great choice for low rates and easy access to area attractions
The Knights Inn in Groton is just a short way off of Interstate 95 at exit 85/87, which is only five minutes from many of the attractions in Mystic. Two of the most popular destinations, Olde Mistick Village and the Mystic Aquarium, are adjacent to each other, making it easy to see both in one outing. Alternatively, two of the largest casinos in the country are about 15 minutes from the Knights Inn Groton. Check out what is going on anywhere in the area using the complimentary high-speed Internet access at the hotel.
Highlights
  • Complimentary breakfast
  • Mini-refrigerators and microwaves in all rooms

Far better than a One-Star Motel

My room was clean and there were no signs of wear and tear--or any insects. A large flat screen TV is wall-mounted. Refrigerator and microwave are very handy for travelers who may have packed their own meals for dinner and/or breakfast. It is minutes away from I-95 and local restaurants. On the Sunday morning when I checked out, the TV in the main office was blaring a Christian Bible sermon. The management ought to consider whether some programs might be inappropriate for a business serving the general public. Overall, this is a good place to stay if you aren't demanding fancy accommodations.

If you're driving North on I-95 through CT, it's a cheap, convenient stop for a good night's sleep.

What I expected :)

I wasn't expecting a Five Star location.....we just needed a place to sleep after a night out a Foxwoods. The room was clean and spacious. Would have been nice if they offered a shuttle service to and from Foxwoods. No complaints though!

Worst Hotel Ever!

Worst hotel experience ever. During check in, I had to check into 3 rooms before I got into my correct room. First room had the wrong bed, second room the AC didn't work, 3rd room a cockroach in the light shield. The 4th room I gave up on, it was cleaner, but still cleanliness issues. Stains and burns on the floor, stains on the recliner, bathroom shower curtain was slimy, not enough towels, and no where to plug in any of my electronics. I went to get snacks from the machine, almost nothing left. The one snack I did get expired 3 months ago. The next morning I asked where I could get coffee from the maid, the maid threw her hands in the air. I went inside, it was 10:15am, the male Manager said the free breakfast ended at 10am for a reason and I couldn't get a coffee. I also let him know his maids didn't speak English. He said he prefers that his maids don't understand anything. Very rude and disrespectful. The walls were very thin and I could hear the other guests. TVs didn't work well, remotes need to be reprogrammed. My dog was staying with my friend, while I was at the hotel, due to the no pet policy. She came by to drop my dog off, so I could take my dog to the beach with me to end my birthday vacation. This was my last day and during checkout, I merely put my dog into the car, the same male Manager came out in front of all the other guests, embarrassed us and yelled at us stating that we broke the rules and he was going to charge me a $200 fee. He did not want to listen to what actually happened. The WHOLE experience was HORRIBLE. I asked for a refund a day early, he said it was not allowed. I was unfortunately forced to stay at this location one more day. I would advise all to never go to this location.

The price was the cheapest around the Mystic/Foxwoods area. Very close to restaurants, grocery stores, McDonalds, etc. Walls were thin, though, could hear a TV on at 6am!

Glad it was only two nights

I requested a non-smoking room, but was put in a smoking room. The room appeared clean, but there were roaches in several of the rooms (one guest woke everyone up at 1:30am to announce she had them in her room). The continental breakfast was stale bagels and hard donuts.
