Stayed 3 nights for work the beginning of March. The hotel was okay, nothing special and a bit dated. My room was large and generally was clean. The heat/ac unit was an older under window unit that was rather fussy and inconsistent. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom decent.
The bar was poor. The male bartender was rather aloof and spent most of his time on the other end of the bar which was the sports bar side, the hotel side is basically a hole knocked in the wall for direct access. The bar sticks 6 feet in and there's maybe 12 stools and not much room for anything else. You'd be better off attempting to cross the road to the Mexican place across the street.
The hotel is directly off Rt 84 and only about a mile from Rt 91, and you can see Rentschler Field from the hotel. It'd be very convenient for any event ion Hartford, especially a UConn football game, but at a good price.
