Best Western Olympic Inn

Recent guest reviews

The price is right, the staff is friendly and the restaurant is good. But it's worn and dated. It tries hard but it needs a full renovation. We had plumbing problems!

The room was ok but came with a barely attached shower curtain that they fixed the next day. The room came with a fly, very unusual. The attendant told me they can come through the air conditioning vent which I don't think is actually correct. Smokers are allowed to imbibe their addiction only about 2 - 5 yards from the entrance rather than 100 yards away. You get a free full buffet breakfast at the hotel restaurant. The bed was updated and comfy. The room is not what I consider homey as there are no pictures on the walls. Wi-fi was good with plenty of place to power up devices. The windows do not open to let in fresh air. It was quiet. We've stayed at some very nice BWs and so I would rate this as an overall disappointment. But it did have a low rate which probably means you get what you pay for.

Easy to get to, very friendly staff, and the shuttle to and from Mohegan is awesome. Also the included breakfast buffet in the morning is the icing on the cake. We would absolutely stay here again.

An ok motel. They don't seem to care much about anything. The food at the downstairs restaurant (Flannagan's) is pretty bad, so the included breakfast is just terrible.

Room was dated, no toilet paper holder and dirty towels with make-up on them. I would expect this from a drive in motel but not a $220 a night facility. Complimentary breakfast tasted like it was heated up out of a bag. The staff was awesome with everything, Angel and shay(i may not be saying this right) from the front desk were great but Carlo the van driver was the highlight of our stay!

Good location for various attractions including the Sub Museum and Mystic. Not far from the RI State beaches at Misquamicutt (20 minutes). Breakfast was very complete served in the adjoining restaurant. This was just a place for us to hang our hat while day tripping. No traffic problems.

Stayed here during a mini vacation with my daughter. Our room was clean, quiet and comfortable. The quality of the food at the in hotel restaurant left a lot to be desired, so we skipped the complimentary breakfast the last 2 days of our stay and opted for the dunkin donuts next door. It was tough to tell if the indoor pool was clean...there were flakes of something that looked like paint floating in the water...and the water temp was cold for a 'heated' pool. Would recommend this hotel as just that...a comfortable place to sleep for the night while spending your days enjoying what there is to do around Mystic and the neighboring areas.

My friend and I wanted a place to stay for the night since we were spending the weekend at Mohegan Sun, but didn't feel like paying $600 for a room at the casino. This hotel fit the bill 15 minutes away. We just needed a comfortable place to sleep, and we got a free breakfast buffet to boot!

Breakfast and free shuttle to Mohegan is great. We always stay at this hotel when we go to concerts.

Great service..friendly competent staff...rooms clean and nice addition to have breakfast available...beyond the typical continental breakfast...this was a breakfast buffet

good place to stay near mohegun sun without paying the price of mohegun sun. shuttle bus service was helpful

Decent Hotel close to Mohegan Sun. Nothing fancy but worth the price to avoid paying for a room at Mohegan. I would stay again.

For the price, the rooms need updating. Wallpaper is peeling in spots, furniture is outdated. Staff was great and breakfast was good.

good location. Breakfast buffet very good. Friendly staff.

Perfect location b/t Sub Base/Nautilus Museum and the Groton USSVI Clubhouse. Nice hot breakfast buffet--all good.

A breakfast ticket comes with an overnight stay. We found the breakfast restaurant dark and unfriendly. The waitress' were spending more time arguring with each other than serving the few waiting customers. Also, the hot tub was dirty.

Staff could not have been more courteous. Answered the phone on the first ring. Were able to easily get information to me. Breakfast was delicious...great coffee and I loved the French toast. I had a sore back and the nice hot wated in the tub in my room I soak in was perfect...loved the scented smoke...I got 2 compliments on it. Would stay there again in a heart beat. AFS

The staff was awesome! Especially Stacey. Room / location was perfect for my stay. I would definitely stay here again.

The kids loved the pool and hot tub! The continental breakfast was a really nice spread in their restaurant.

I planned a stay at Mohegan sun and the rates for other hotels were nearly double the price! Wanted to keep costs down we found this hotel which included a free shuttle. The rooms are clean and the shuttle is extremely convenient. Definitely worth the Money you save rather than choosing another hotel. :)
