House keeping never came to clean. Had to call for towels. Walls were disgustingly dirty. Bed had a sink hole in the middle that we had to fight to stay out of and on top of each other. Great location though and manager did come right up with towels and apologized.

Upon our arrival, the manager on duty was asleep, and the place locked up. We had to knock on the door multiple time to be able to get/check in! The room had a rough mold/musk smell, and the place dusty and carpets are not clean. The bed cover was burn with cigarette holes, the main bathroom towels were literally worn out, should've been thrown away! The hand towel and the bed sheets had stains of what seemed to be blood stains. The place was in a really poor condition. On a positive note, the gentleman who checked us in/out, was nice upon our departure. But that's about it! Sorry, I do not recommend this place.

the experience was good the front desk was very pleasant easy access to highway

The worst hotel I ever seen in my life well should say motel cause they are advertising it wrong

room smelled cold no heat pillow like paper door lock did not work

My sons and I stayed here for 2 nights while we were visiting Conn College. The room was quite small. We had to move a bed to open the front door. There was dirt or mold on the ceiling by the front door and in the bathroom. The paint was peeling. The lighting was limited. The laundry and ice machine were out of order. We only had (2) towels and when I sent my son the get a third for the third person on our reservation, he was told no, that they don't give out extra towels. The gentleman behind the glass eventually brought over a third towel. I never complain about service. I just do not return to a business where I did not feel like my business was appreciated. If one of my children decide to attend Conn College, I will never stay there again. In fact, I will tell anyone I know traveling in that area to avoid that business. The combination of value, service and cleanliness was simply awful.

This hotel was the absolutely disgusting. It was so run down. Handles hanging off furniture, phone was all busted up, leak under bathroom sink. Curtains were ripped and hanging off rod, lamps were broke and shades were ripped. It was so musty and smoky smelling. We could not find any other hotel w a vacancy or we would not have stayed here. I even considered sleeping in the car all night.

I booked this hotel the day before and didn't have many choices. Upon arriving at 10 or 11 at night, I experienced the following: 1. Other guests with their doors open, shirts off, drinking and partying in the parking lot. Poorly lit parking lot. 2. Very shabby general condition of the room, musty smell. 3. Dead bolt on door broken off. Door could only be locked at knob. 4. Dead bugs on one of the beds! Didn't look more closely to see if there were live ones as well. 5. What appeared to be dried blood on the doorframe in the bathroom. We immediately left and drove a few more hours. The manager said he would have given me a refund if he could, but I would have to go through the referring website.

Good value. Please update website photos. There is no pool!

Heater didn't work, and when brought to the front desks attention they told me that it was because it was cold outside. Security latch was missing the catch on the door. The door frame had a split where it looked like someone had tried to break in, and a hole in the wall from the door handle. Brought it to managements attention and was told it would be fixed and nothing was done.

Good stay internet connection was great. Friendly staff.

Sadly, more expensive than it was worth, but friendly staff and great location right off the highway!

Close enough to 95/395 to access the casinos. Extremely friendly and helpful staff. The room was very clean and comfortable. Great place to crash for the evening for short money. We have stayed here three times before and will again.

for the price i paid i was very happy with the stay...hot water, decent bed and even a fridge...id stay again

was ok

needed a cheap place: found it here: no frills but exactly what i needed: avg. bed avg. room avg. comfort

It was right off the Highway which was very good for us, we had a wedding to go to in Westbrook. The the price was right. The place might of been rundown but didn't matter to us. It was clean that's what counts.

The first thing we noticed is that there was A big sign advertizing $39 midweek, we paid [...] $59. Got into the room and there was NO heat on NONE , ZERO , ZIP .... ITS WINTER OUT !!!! Took 5 hours for the room to heat up !!! The lock on the door was very iffy, the deadbolt did not work at all and the security latch was busted. We had to prop a chair against the door when we went to sleep

My son and I were only there for one night. The location was so convenient to the highway and it was very quiet. No parties going on. My son and I were able to get a good nights sleep.
