Good for the price. Friendly greeting upon arrival. Our room was on the first floor. Room 158 was clean and smelled good. Not spending any time in the room other than to sleep and shower is good for the price. Nice tv in the room but theres no service. No satellite, no cable. The lights next to the bed were unplugged so I did have to search for the outlet. Tried using the phone and it was not plugged in either. The key card is extremely sensitive to being near a phone and the front desk closes at 11. You'll be stuck if you ruin your card key and you are not back before 11pm. With gps it was easy to find.

This was sufficient for our very short stay. The hotel looks and smells clean. There is a mini kitchen with stove, microwave, refrigerator, etc. Very convenient. If you are a coffee lover, you will be disappointed. There is no coffee maker in the room.

I worked in the New London area for three weeks and stayed at this motel for the whole time. The weekly rate was excellent, the room had a small kitchen with a small fridge. The staff was friendly and the cleaning ladies did an excellent job every day. I would recommend this place for anyone who needs to stay a week or more.

I travel a bit and have stayed in a variety of hotels and motels. I do not think I've ever stayed in one that did not have in room coffee. This hotel did not provide coffee and the office opens late--so if they have coffee it is not convenient for guests who leave early. The room was clean and the kitchenette a nice idea, but the room was not equipped to support more than one occupant (one plate, one knife, one fork). No coffee cups, either (so if you bought your own instant coffee there is nothing to drink it in.) The tub was not usuable. We got a plug from the office so my daughter could take a bath, but the valve would not close to turn off the shower. There was no coffee. Also, there did not seem to be a convenient store to buy supplies. We could not connect to the internet. Will not stay here again. Tough coffee :(

My husband and I, stay in the hotel every year from our anniversary. The service is great and the Manager D is a sweetheart. The hotel is located in a great location. There is a outback behind the hotel and you are roughly ten minutes from the beach and downtown. We also go to the casinos the distance is like 30 minutes or less depend on traffic is you take a ubber is roughly 20-30 dollars. I love this hotel and the staff. We will back again next year. I can't wait...

I can only write for the room I was in which is Room 161. I stayed only one night July 30 - 31st but was impressed with the place. This was my first time staying at an inn because all hotels were booked in the area. It is conveniently located in walking distance to many places. I parked right outside my window which was great. They had some construction material to the side because they are doing some renovations to the building. The person at the front desk apologized to us about it but we had no problem at all because it wasn't in the way and we understand what it was there for. This is a great choice if you are looking for a place to stay for a couple nights and relax a little bit. Room, kitchenette and bathroom were clean.

There are signs that the motel is renovating. I hope they continue. Room was large, clean, and looks like new paint and many new furnishings. Good place to stop on a x country trip. But the bathroom needs attention: ceiling rusted, fan so noisy we thought it was going to take off and fly away. Occasional slight wiff of cigarette smoke. The updated part had nice fixtures with many charging stations. I think the owners are trying and it will be a good place when they finish. Nice check in, but owner did not mention breakfast, ice machine location or wi-fi. I would return here. Thanks to the owners for making an effort.

I just needed a place for one night. The lady at the desk was really nice. Room was clean, well equiped and comfortable. Breakfast was very limited but not a big deal for me. Of course it is situated near the highway but that should not come as a surprise to anybody.

The outside is a little sketchy looking. When we walked in the lady at the desk was very nice and got us all checked in. She told us that their would be a continental breakfast in the morning. We opened the door to our room to our surprise the room was very clean and most of the amenities have been updated. We had to leave by 7:30 am to catch the ferry. The continental breakfast was not out yet. No coffee either.

Stayed here two nights in May. We have been comin to the new london area for 20 plus years, and have stayed at most of the hotels/motels in the area. From 2 star, to 5star, we've stayed at many of them. For this category hotel, it was convenient, clean, and bed comfortable. You can tell they are trying to get the property up to snuff. New flat screens, beds, furnishings. They even have usb plugs at the work desk. Wifi was good. A couple of small notes (we were fine with them, others may not). bathroom has not been redone, fan didn't work, and it showed it's age. It was clean, no sign of mold. I would guess this is next on their list of improvements. If you are lookng for reasonable rates, good location, comfortable bed, give it a chance. If free breakfast, pool, etc are on your list, probably not for you. We will be back.
