Overall a good experience. Fully stocked kitchen, however they can use more utensils/ cookware.

Convenient location but surrounding area is sub par.. hotel was fine for one night but Could have been cleaner. Good value for the money.

The staff was very good and helpful with all our requests.

check in was good However, no maid service on the weekend--the time that we were there.

we used the gym. made coffee in our room. was great

The hotel was perfectly fine for a last minute decision for a hotel stay. Clean, comfy beds, no complaints.

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.

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.

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.

My fiancé and I , just came back from our weekend getaway, and we stayed at this hotel .... All I can say is Amazing. The location was great there were eateries , shopping malls in great distance , the room was very tidy and cozy , and the staff was surperb. We will stay again, and I will definitely recommended !!!! Thanks Hawthrone in Meriden CT :-)

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.

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.

we wanted to avoid Snow travel and we are happy with our stay it was confortable, clean, and staff were very friendly and helpful will return.

The rooms have a kitchenette and the holte has a 24hr store with more than basics: food, personal hygiene supplies, etc.

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.

Hotel changed companies sometime between when we booked the hotel and when we arrived so we drove around trying to find a hotel the ended up being right in front of us just with a different name. When we arrived the staff was friendly. They do have 24 hour staff at the front desk. The main hallway to the elevators had the gym and laundry room and seemed to be in good working order. The only bad part was that directly accross the hall are smoking rooms and the hallway smelled of smoke and unfortunately that is the only access to the elevators. The room was clean and in good repair. I appreciated that there was an iron and ironing board in the room. HBO and other premium channels were included. The bed was comfortable though it only had 3 pillows and when we asked for more the staff at the front required that we come to the lobby to get them. Overall for the price I would stay there again.

I was very pleased with location. Right off the highway. Within a few miles from pharmacy and grocery store. Everything in the hotel was neat and working order. The staff members were very hospitable. I had everything I needed in the room. Plenty of towels as well. Everything you need at a more than reasonable price!

Location and directions given by the staff was excellent. Great check in and courteous greeting. The room was perfect for our stay and check out was just as simply. Excellent value as well. Thank you again.

The place was located right off the freeway--good location since we were on a road trip. However, it was called "candlewood suites" on the site, which was its old name, so we drove by the Wyndham the first time around since the name was different. The room was equipped with a basic kitchen, free wifi, clean, and the diner across the street was decent. Good deal for overnight stay on road trip.

The mini kitchen in the rooms is a really neat addition. Great for reheating food you bought earlier, or cooking yourself. The staff was really helpful, and I really have nothing negative to say about it.
