My husband and I stayed at The Carriage House for 2 nights and highly recommend it if you are in the area. Clean, spacious room and outstanding hospitality by the hotel manager, Michelle. She went above and beyond to ensure our stay was comfortable. It is a close walk to many restaurants, and there is ample parking. We will definitely stay here the next time we’re in Hamden.

The owner in the lobby was the sweetest lady. The room we got was spacious and completely new. Very cozy, very clean, and very welcoming. Even had Aveda products in the bathroom. I’m trying to find another reason to go back!!

Loved our stay here! Independent, boutique hotel with so much thought and care put into every aspect of their guests’ stay. Helpful, welcoming staff and beautiful, clean, comfortable rooms— we will be back! Thank you!

Yale University is only a 10 minute drive. Perfect for our visit. Very clean, well lit, comfortable beds, and no rugs great for people with allergies. It's was a small room, but just right for us two double beds. The owner and the manager were friendly and helpful. The only issue is that there are no elevators but it's only two floors. The A/C worked great. Even though it's right of a busy road it was very quiet.

We received a very warm welcome at check-in, complete with a sweet thank you card with a hand-written note. What a lovely touch! We had an upstairs room with a king size bed, and it was such a delight! The room was incredibly clean and the decorative elements were a step up from standard hotel/motel utilitarian stuff. I believe that they think of everything here - Rinal even asked at check-in if we would prefer decaf coffee or tea pods for our in-room Keurig. I am sure we'll be staying here again when we visit the New Haven area in the future.

The Inn keeper is charming and waited to check us in around 10 at night. She was friendly and gave us extra cookies after a long travel day. 😁 The room was super clean and much better than you would expect on the outside. I’d come back for sure.

What a little gem... was booked by my secretary so when I arrived to find a motel I was a little disappointed. I need not have been, Michelle the manager is wonderful when greeting and this place is the cleanest Motel I have ever stayed in after 38 States. Convenient and walking distance to restaurants. Still a work in progress I think but you won’t get much nicer in a 3/4 star hotel, highly recommend!

This had to be one of the cleanest hotels I have stayed. The room was 2 double beds on the second floor. The beds were very comfortable. The room was stylish and thoughtfully decorated.The room had everything you would need for your stay. Hairdryer (a real hairdryer, not one of those little ones stuck to the wall), iron and ironing board, excellent in room coffee maker. Management and staff was very thoughtful and whenever they saw you would ask about your stay and if you needed anything. The property has been newly renovated with rooms to be additional remodeled. I wish them every success! Please consider staying here when in the Hampden/New Haven area and give a small local business your support.

Found this on Trip Advisor and so glad we did. Fantastic value for money, extremely clean, ultra comfy bed, background road noise not a surprise due to location but no hindrance to a good night’s sleep. Just enjoying morning cup of great coffee from Kurig coffee making machine! Will definitely come again if we need accommodation in the area.

We called ahead for an early check-in and when we arrived we arrived we were greeted warmly by the manager, Michelle. She escorted us to our clean, modern and comfortable room. Whatever they did to retrofit this motel worked!
