        The bed was very comfortable.

        Hall and stairways rundown. Coffee in lobby bad, juice not real.

        Staff was friends and helpful.

        This particular location needs some updating in facilities and a cosmetic make over.

        The room smell bad, Tolit sit was dirty, coffe maker dirty inside and outside. There was no breakfast , Front desk wasn't there. Vending machine empty and even the parking lot there was weeds growing out. It looks like the place was going out of the busness. Oh even the sign with the name of the hotel was burned. We had a really bad expirence. I don't care for luxury but a clean place is not much to ask for it!!.

        nothing! The hotel was a total dump. The pics on the site are not even close to what the place looks like. The old bait and switch game. The place is old and run down. There is trash and weeds in the front. The lawn wasnt cut and the place is not maintained properly. Like staying in a place you would see in the movies where hookers would rent the rooms on an hourly basis. The a/c unit was so loud you couldnt use it. The sheets and bedding were old and worn. The place was filthy and moldy. There is nothing good I can say about this hotel. You really should drop it from your site and do a better job in verifying the information from your hotel advertisers

        The country setting.

        Let me list everything: odor, covered up by room freshener and room plug- ins, the very large whole/dip in the mattress, bed spread was soiled and stained on the underside, blanket was old and tattered, bottom of bath tub had black spots, side of the toilet had pee down the side of it, toilet seat was well worn, floor of bathroom had dirt in corners, continental breakfast was the worst I've ever seen, and presentation was terrible! I would not recommend this motel to anyone! Howard Johnson should be ashamed of the owner/management of this location.

        Fronk desk check in was easy. He even knew who I was (must have been by the license plate of car) All room are inside access and you must use a key to acess door at night felt very secure. room was nice nothing fancy but for the price it was very good fridge and microwave and wifi. would def return

        Absolutely nothing. Worst experience ever. I could not believe Howard Johnson's would allow their name to be associated with this obviously privately owned boarding house.

        Cats in the room next door that kept meowing, even though there was a no pet policy. 2 boxes of condoms and lubricant were left in bedside draw by the cleaning staff. Too many bad things to list here. Worst hotel experience ever.

        It was the closest available to New London Conn College. Stayed for my son's parents weekend. Rented room w/ my mother.

        Sheets were dirty, bathtub had hair in it. I booked a non smoking, but could smell cigarette smoke in the hallway and in my room.

      • Single

        The staff was friendly and it was located next to a mini strip mall with food.

        The room had a foul odor and should have included breakfast.

      • Single

        The owner was a nice guy.

        I did not like this hotel at all. The hotel smelled, my room had a lot of dust and the last day of my stay, my room was not cleaned and I had to use the previous day towels!! I will never book a room through this site.

        Bed was comfortable, and the pizza place next door had great service, and the BESTpizza I've had in a long long time. Staff was friendly.

        The room was old. Toilet didn't work very well. Iron Burns in the rug, patched holes in the walls, air conditioner was so loud it kept you up all night, but the room was too stuffy without it. Plenty of hot water in the sink, but the shower was barely warm. Very few of the channels listed that were available to view came in. Would definitely go back for the pizza next door in the little plaza... But would never stay at that hotel again!!! Total pit!!
