Unpleasant neighbor

I arrived at 1:30 AM due to business commitments and expected a quiet parking lot and hotel lobby. The place was hopping so much you would have thought it was 8 PM. After checking in and emerging from the elevator, I could hear music blasting from a room. As I walked down the hall, I realized the music was coming from the room next to mine. Fortunately, the manager showed up a few minutes later and yelled at the young man who claimed he was just trying to celebrate his birthday.

Casino Trip

I've stayed at the Super 8 in Groton before and have found it to be the best motel in the area due to the ability to check in reasonably early like 10am or even earlier and being friendly and comfortable. The downside for me is oftem getting put in a smoking room when nonsmoking had been my preference and a lackluster complimentary "breakfast"

Great stay for the price

We stayed at this hotel for $42 a night. I thought for that price it was going to be much worse. The room was so so, we did not find any hazards, there were no bugs, and the overall place was clean. The AC worked great. There was an ice machine in the lobby. It was about a 20 minute drive to Mohegan Sun, staying here for $42 beat Mohegan Sun price for $299 a night.

Nightlife tip: Short drive from hotel

The Irish Pub in Mohegan Sun was fantastic. Make a reservation and if you don't (like me and my husband) sit at the bar in the back room. The band was fantastic!

Great location

We stayed at this hotel because of it's closeness to both casinos. We were there for three nights. The towels were stained and one day we were left with no towels at all. The in room coffee pot was only cleaned once. The complimentary breakfast was not worth the money. Coffee was good but the wonder bread for toast and fruit loops for cereal could really have been improved on. We were locked out of our room one day as apparently they didn't take into account that our reservation was for three days. There was a cigarette butt ground into the rug in the hall. The air conditioner clicked for about 10 minutes before it would come on. This irritating noise repeated all night until we finally just turned it off. Other than that our stay was fine. Would we rebook this particular super 8? I don,t think so.

Beware, should have read the reviews

From the start, this hotel was hard to get to. Off the interstate, it was not easy to navigate to the location. When we arrived, there were taxis dropping off what appeared to be undesirables at this location, the type that needs the room for an hour or less. Then, when we did get into the room, pulled down the sheets, they were filled with someone's hair. It looked like the housekeeper just made the bed. When we went to the desk, we were first told "what would you like me to do about it" was told there was no other rooms available. The registration person offered new sheets which we took and had to clean our own room. Security lacked, the lock on the room window could be opened from the outside, or did not lock. There was a piece of wood that was the window "lock". In the morning, the cleaning staff was smoking in the hallway near the "non-smoking" rooms, which added to the terrible experience. This was the worst experience I have ever had with a hotel, and will be contacting management about the stay. All I can say, is that this is a terrible hotel/motel and unless they changed, no one should stay here unless there is no choice.

This was a perfect place to stay over nite . It is very close to Mohegan. I will say that it is very dated, but clean. Beds are good for sleeping
