Clean rooms. Clean halls. There was no chemical smell to mask anything. Just perfectly clean. Rooms feel new and spacious. Bathroom well supplied. Breakfast on Sunday included hot options. On weekdays was simple continental, but included gluten free options. The only minus for me was that the curtain in the room was see-through and light woke me up in the morning.

Convenient location, clean updated room. Breakfast included. Elevator was slow, but there’s always the stairs!

Hotel staff was AWESOME. Friendly and available. Everyone was happy - a great culture.

We received a wake up call at 4:00 AM which we did not request. It was a stormy and treacherous night. My wife and I both froze when the phone rang thinking the worst and never were able to go back to sleep. When I wrnt to the front desk in the morning they did not even offer a apology.

Red stain on carpet. Loud neighbors at 12:30 a.m. First night. The next night kids running back and forth. No hand towels. No conditioner. Furniture was older and one arm chair. Bed uncomfortable. Hotel staff was rude at check out.

Staff is very polite from front desk to cleaning employees. We were late to breakfast and staff allowed us to have breakfast anyway. The location is very quiet and easy access to I-95.

No hot water and broken bathroom light, definitely not worth what I paid. Very disappointed

The hotel was great! Breakfast excellent! Location and cleanliness wonderful! Staff was very friendly. Heated pool was NOT heated and needed serious vacuuming! Hot tub sign said 103°. It sure felt like 110°! We could only get in up to our knees and we are hot tub lovers! That was very disappointing. Though I would recommend this hotel to friends I would certainly clue them in about the pool and hot tub!

I give it a great review, my only complaint is the paper thin walls, or lack of insulation, something. You can here the person(s) entire conversation either side. Very noisy, had to wear ear plugs.

Location is excellent for I95 travelers - only one minute away from exit. The staff is not overly friendly. Hotel is well maintained. There is a Japanese restaurant and a burger type restaurant right across the street. The latter offers nice atmosphere, good food and very friendly staff!

This hotel was a great stop off on our way through Connecticut. The public areas of the hotel and the room were bright and clean. The staff was friendly and happy to accommodate any requests, like forgotten toiletries. For the price, a lot of features were included- full breakfast, internet, pool, small workout room. I would stay here again if I was in the area.

Wall were very thin!!!!!! People partying next door and I thought they were in my room!!!! Staff did take care of situation when called on . I don't think I'd stay there again for the risk of lack of sleep again!!!

very good room and value. the staff is very friendly.

The hotel definitely needs to improve the insulation of the walls between rooms. You can easily hear your neighbors conversations and/or the TV. I was very surprised to hear more noise coming the from the neighbors, rather than the outside Route 1 and I-95. Lastly, for the continental breakfast - that was the worst orange juice I have ever had. Sure, the machine that dispenses it was not properly set up, but I took one sip of the "pure sugar" drink and that was enough for me to give this place a three star.

I've stayed at this hotel a few times. It is very clean, the staff is nice, free coffee and tea are available all day, and they have a nice little breakfast in the morning. There is also a pool and hot tub which I don't use, but my family does. Also you get free wifi.

Used this hotel to visit Yale. Although it was 8 miles away, it was easy to travel to. Its' location provided a secure feeling. The indoor pool and exercise room were nice, and it had one of the nicest breakfasts I have seen. Towels were fluffy and linens lovely. Room in excellant condition, A/C/heater quiet and effective. The staff was friendly and helpful. My only negative was that the walls seemed a little "thin". It was generally quiet though, and I carry earplugs anyway. A great value.
