OK for a night

A little ways from downtown. Fine for a one night stay but if I was staying longer in Stamford I would opt for one of the downtown hotels where the area and amenities are much nicer.

They are trying

So when we arrived it was midnight, and I had my 7 year old sleeping in my arms, a heavy backpack of our necessities, a blanket and two stuffies for the sleeping angel...there were 2 people already at the counter when we arrived who were drunk or high, and wouldn't let the front desk guy check us in. He even asked her to please hold on a moment so he could check us in, which I greatly appreciated, but the gal was rude and would not let us go. When it was our turn, I had payed via paypal & was asked for a credit card or $50, which I wasnt expecting at all. I didnt have the back muscle strength to argue so i forked over what little cash i had and went to our room. After we finally got checked in (about 15-20 min), the drunk or high girl and her friends were running up and down the halls, standing outside our room hollaring and partying all night long. My son didnt wake up, so I tried to bury the sound in some music. We were out of there less than 7 hours later. The room was clean and I would recommend it for a quick stop on a long trip when you only need a clean bed to sleep in.

Not at all like the overview

Although false claims in the "Overview" and "Amenities" sections lead you to believe the hotel is a great value, this hotel is proof that you get what you pay for. For example, the Overview clearly states: "The rooms are equipped with modern conveniences including microwaves, refrigerators..." However, there was neither a microwave nor a refrigerator in the room (which, by the way, were the selling points that made me choose this as a pitstop on a long road trip over the other area hotels). Further, the various claims about "complimentary Wi-Fi" are a farce. There was no "complimentary Wi-Fi" available and when we asked about it at the front desk, the clerk pointed to two HARDWIRED desktops and said "that's our Wi-Fi," which meant that I could not sit in the privacy (not comfort) of my room to use my own laptop to login to my company servers and do my work. Wi-Fi and hardwired computers are not synonymous. The room itself was reminiscent of a bad experience I had on a family vacation in the '80s: stains on the bed spread AND blanket; a bathroom that looked rundown and made creepy noises all night - frankly, straight out of a horror movie; an unidentifiably bad odor; and pillows that were so extremely lumpy that I would swear they must have been thrown in a machine machine for 20 years straight, except that they still reeked of previous occupants' unwashed hair. I can honestly say that had I not been exhausted from driving 8 hours in pouring rain and had it not been close to midnight when I got to the hotel, I would have demanded a refund and found another, cleaner place to stay or just slept in my car. But instead, I crashed for a few hours and left as soon as possible.

VERY basic, but fine for budget travel

I didn't 't want to spend much to catch a little shut-eye on a quick trip, so booked the cheapest spot I could find near Greenwich. Super 8 fit the bill. I wasn't expecting much. The place is old and a bit run-dow -- especially the common areas, but I didn't care. The room actually had more amenities than expected: free wifi, fridge, microwave, large TV, coffee pot, and ironing board in every room. Didn't use any of that, but a nice surprise. Stuff I did care about: The bed was very comfortable, the staff was friendly, and the location was convenient. On the down side (for me), there aren't many hotels that allow smoking. Thus is one of them. I was in a non-smoking room. But if you are sensitive to smoke, you will still smell it.

never again, gives super 8's a bad rap

The carpet looked like it had blood on it. The reclining chair would not even had been accepted by goodwill. Stayed for one night after concert in Port Chester, NY.

easy to get to I-95, but office/internet/coffee are terrible

I want to check out the map to the airport, but there is no printer; the internet is dramatically slow in my room, and the coffee, shampoo, other supplies are perhaps limited to one person only (may not be even enough). Not flexible at all for changing the reservations, as due to snow in the morning, I was hoping to switch to another hotel near the airport, but they rejected; and I have to get up at 3AM to avoid the potential risk of bad weather.

Very good

This hotel is clean, the room was very comfortable, the fixtures were modern and in good working order. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The driving to NYC is very convenient; I was in the city within 30 minutes. The hotel is within easy access to the highway. The only inconvenience is that you have to go out for food, but they have delivery services to the rooms. I would stay there again, for sure.
