Good weekend. Price was good!

About what I expected from a 3 star hotel. Good hot breakfast, but the coffee pot ran out, if you were late. As an over 80 aged couple we do not hustle in the morning. 8 am is early enough for breakfast. great waffle maker and plenty of dough. Room was clean and staff were very nice. The room could use a floor lamp. hard for 2 people to read in the evening with just the wall mounted bed lights and the wall mounted desk light. No, we did not request a floor lamp. They might have had one, but I usually use what is in the room. Great kitchen, with pots and sevice for two. We did not use it due to other family commitments, it would work well for a week long visit.

Hawthorn suites, Meriden, ct

Our stay was only for 2 nights but i can tell u that this place was relatively clean. As well as Relatively quiet. The breakfast bar was better than average. Pretty much what one would expect from a 3star place. Check in was painless. Check out- quick and easy. I would stay here again if in the area. But the discounted rate was what made staying here a true delight.

Stay away from the "steak house" directly across the street. It's in fact NOT a steak house....more of a "Denny's" in disguise.

Bang for your buck

Staff were polite and pleasant. Room was bigger than expected. Wish I would have brought some groceries, room included full kitchen with dishes,etc. Over all the room I stayed in was better than any of those $130 / night motels.

Not bad for the price

My biggest complaint is that they don't have ANY rooms with more than one bed. Hard to believe but that's what they said. Awkward when you're travelling with your 13 year old daughter. The rooms themselves were nice. Clean, bed was comfortable. Breakfast was only pre-packaged muffins and bottled juice. The ebst thing was the staff. The woman who helped us when we arrived was great. She gave us an extra room at no cost the first night until we could make other arrangements the next day.

stay during Blizzard 2013 Feb 8,2013

During this stressful time of being snowed in I'd like to first acknowledge the two staff members that stayed the weekend with us all, rotating shifts. The manager was absent the entire weekend. The staff that remained with us should be promoted! At all times, they exhibited a patient and professional demeanor. They truly went above and beyond! The rooms are need of an update in decor, as well as electronics. The tv was old and "snowy", and we had to ask for cables to connect the dvd player. As far as cleanliness the trash in my room was still full from the previous guest. This gives me great pause as to the rest of the cleaning practices. People were expected to dig their own cars out of the snow, to get out of the poorly plowed lot. The blizzard was on a Friday, and when I left on Tuesday there were still vehicles buried in snow!

not what expected

Everyone seemed nice enough, but arrived to smell people smoking on a non-smoking floor. Thankfully that did not continue in a way that I noticed for the rest of the stay. This is not a 3 start hotel. You get the basics, should note when booking that your room will not be cleaned- for 5 days, it was just not what I expect for a 3 star hotel.

Great for the needs

I was going to be in CT for 5 days and wanted a nice room with the ability to cook my own meals. This was a great affordable option. Bed was comfortable but they could use new pillows. Room was clean and even though they only provide a cleaning service every 5 days I was able to get new towels when needed. It was close to the interstate so it was easy to get to all of my meetings in the area. I will stay there again in the future if I need an extended stay place.
