I've stayed at many Motel 6's over the years, and the quality can vary from location to location. This particular Motel 6 has been nicely upgraded, and the service that I experienced was excellent.
When we arrived, I was checked in by a very pleasant, helpful front desk person. The rooms themselves were surprisingly large - equal in size to what you'd find in a typical mid-range hotel. The rooms had also been upgraded to the new Motel 6 decor, which was nice - but the room actually seemed a bit too large since it only had the standard, spartan Motel 6 furniture in it - in this case, one bed, the standard work desk / TV counter, and a small size table. But the room was comfortable and clean, and that's all that matters.
The bathroom was likewise clean. The showers had the newer Motel 6-issue restricted flow shower heads, which delivered an average but not robust stream of hot water.
The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet, enabling me to get a decent night's sleep.
The Wi-Fi worked flawlessly, and, as an AARP member, one gets a discount on the room rate and the wi-fi is free.
We drove quite a ways out of our way to stay at this location, because the price made it worthwhile, compared to typical motel prices in southern Connecticut. The extra drive was worth it.
There's a 24 hour diner down the road and a Walgreens nearby. There's easy access to I-95 and New Haven is a short drive away.
Overall - a good choice if all you're looking for is basic but comfortable lodging.
