You get what you pay for.

We arrived at the hotel 45 minutes prior to check in. We were hoping to get a early check in. It's was mother's day. We were anxious to take our mother and Nana out for dinner. Well they definitely made us wait until exactly 3. The room was very clean I will say. But don't fall for their pics. They show a flat screen TV and other amenities you don't get. Needless to say the tvs are the old box tvs.

Not at all what we expected

We arrived to find that the pool was closed so that definitely put a damper on things. Our room smelled, was dusty and very outdated. The bathroom seemed to have been updated but was poorly done. Vanity was scratched, mirror was falling apart and the ceiling where the lights were was damaged/ discolored and the paint was peeling because the lightbulbs were too close to the ceiling tiles. When I took a shower, the water was luke warm at best. It was about 8pm at night so it's not like it was first thing in the morning when everyone was showering. Breakfast was ok.

family trip

This hotel was the worst one I have ever stayed at all of the things that were supposed included in the hotel wasn't there was no hot breakfast only a plate of doughnuts and a plate of danishes that were all cold and just taken out of the freezer. The pool was closed and that was one of the main reasons for booking the hotel. The TV was even horrible couldn't read anything on the TV and majority of the channels didn't work because it wasn't digital. When checking in also the receptionist was very rude and they also put a 69 dollar deposit on your card which at booking was not mentioned. And I also had 4 people in my room and only 3 pillows and they didn't have any more pillows because they gave everyone else extra pillows so I had to go without. Horrible hotel horrible staff and nothing included that is supposedbto be

Not Bad for the Money

This was not a bad place to stay in but with a few tweaks here and there it could be quite a pleasant bargain. Here 's a few things that may help. Concierge Staff needs to be on one accord. I called ahead to inform them of a late night /early am checking and to please make sure my room was clean, warm , and with a comfortable bed. When I got there I was told my booking for that night had been cancelled . However, the concierge was extremely polite and helpful and was able to correct that quickly. I got two different answers about check out time. Had I not reaffirmed it in the morning of checkout, this could have been a big disappointment ; not too mention more money out of pocket. They need to honor the word of one staff member that gives permissions to guest and straighten out the discrepancies amongst themselves. The room was clean and the bed was comfortable. Free Continental BReakfast a plus: they could make it better with more bagel variety, maybe some flavored. Ream cheese and flavored coffee creamers(was looking for my French Vanilla). It would also be nice if the left the butter and cream cheese at room temperature. UnnecessaryA struggle to spread solid butter and time waster. More variety of fruit . Water could have been hotter for my bath and the stopper kept u stopping itself. Security: I was surprised that non of the access entrances had locks on them. Kind of uncomfortable to know that anyone can gain access just by opening any door. Need security system at least on every access door. All staff we encountered were courteous and friendly. Oh yes. I almost forgot. I stayed in my room late but when I left , I did ask if it could be cleaned up of which I was told yes but it never got cleaned . Thank goodness I did not make too much of a mess but it should have gotten cleaned if I asked for it and they told me yes. I was out of my room for more than 9 hours. Other than that . We were good. Not the Hilton but it was clean. Warm and I did feel accommodated with the exceptions mentioned above.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

Otho h I saw in walking distance. Better do I g is probably I. Downtown Hartford ( except Sundays. Have not found things ops. On Sunday). Enfid seems to have a few spots. They have a shopping mall about 5-7 miles north of the hotel. Ruby Tuesday, and other places . Worth checking. Target, Sears etc. check it.

Not so great

Our tub did not work properly. There was no comforter on the bed. The layout was confusing. The "balcony" was a joke. Disappointing that there were no elevators.

not great

You get what you pay for, and the low rates are because the hotel is outdated, noisy at times, and overall not great. the woman at the front desk however was very friendly and had great customer service skills.
