“Best Place Bang fo Buck!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2013

I Loved this place. I will try to stay there the next time I work in Ct. The staff was Really helpful and friendly. They tried there best to make you feel welcome. The house keeping was out standing and did a great job. They changed sheets when ever asked. I was a relieve knowing your room was done properly. The food was great and I will visit restaurant even if I don't get to stay there. I Highly recommend this place. you wont be disappointed!!

We've been here six or seven times....clean, friendly, free hot breakfast. Yes, a little "old school" in decor, but so what. They have the fundamentals in order. 10 minutes to Mohegan. Save a few hundred dollars versus staying at the casino. Use it for dinner, shopping and games. Will definitley stay again.

The room was comfortable, however, some of the lights did n't work and the light switch for the mai light in the entry way needed to be fixed. The main problem was NO WifI WAS AVAILABLE during our two night stay. That's unsatisfactory.

Room Tip: Best room for the price is a suite. Ist Floor

From the outside, this hotel may be a little intimidating. It's not really visible from the main road and the parking lot is oversized and unused (it may have been used as a conference center is its younger days) which makes the building seem more deserted than it should. There is no hotel sign on the front of the building either.

Inside, the hotel seems aged with wood paneling and a little bit of a wood, musty smell when you walk in. There are no elevators and there is only an ice machine on the first floor.

Despite the outdated aesthetics (and to be fair, there was a sign that said they were doing renovations, so they may be trying to update their look), the hotel was very cheap (under $100 on a Sat. night on Labor Day Weekend) thanks to Priceline Name your Price. Our room was surprisingly large. We had a room on the 2nd floor, near the lobby and stairs which was convenient. The room was much larger than expected! It was a studio suite with a large king size bed. There was a flat screen TV in front of the bed and another one in the living area along with a refrigerator and microwave. Bathroom area was clean and water pressure in shower was adjustable and temperature was great.

Room was very clean and we had a great night. They also include two free breakfast passes, which can be used in their restaurant. We had a late night at Foxwoods, so we did not wake up in time for this, so can’t review how the food was here.

Would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in the area, for either proximity to Foxwoods or for the coast area. If it weren’t for sites like TripAdvisor, we wouldn’t have been inclined to stay here because of its appearance from the outside. But based on the good reviews, we figured it must be decent on the inside and we were right!

Room Tip: Closer to the lobby will make entrance/exit easier since there are no elevators. Or for more privac...

A friend recommended this hotel as a "clean, no frills" place to stay near Mystic. I'm glad I followed his advice. The entrance to this hotel is easy to miss, so call ahead for directions. The front lobby is charming with a small Koi pond and sitting area. A small reading nook with easy chairs and books is located at the top of the lobby stairs. The main building does not have an elevator, but the stairs are an easy climb. I was somewhat concerned when I realized that the lobby and halls were not air conditioned, but the air conditioner in our room worked well. Our rooms were clean and comfortable. The building is older, but seems to be in the process of being renovated. Rooms have a microwave and refrigerator. One drawback was tight quarters in the bathroom and a toilet without a lid. The ice-machine is located downstairs in the smoking wing (not pleasant for non-smokers). We enjoyed the hotel restaurant which serves a "killer" prime rib! My friend tackled the lobster. The complimentary breakfast with a sit-down menu was also a pleasant surprise after a week of continental breakfasts at other hotels on the road. My friend asked if I would I stay here again. My answer? Yes :-)

This inn had two rooms left when we passed through Mystic during a very busy weekend, so we stayed. It is well priced for the area, and we were rented a two bedroom one bath apartment. The entire property is dated, but kept clean. It seems like the staff is doing the best they can with what they have to work with. There is a restaurant on site that is affordable priced, with a bar. The inn offers short and long term rentals and is close to attractions in Mystic. Even though it is located near the highway, you really don't hear the traffic with the air on. It was a good night's rest for us and we would stay there again.

Firstly, I We took a chance on booking this hotel despite the numerous comments regarding the staleness and age of the carpeting, furnishings, etc. because the price was too tempting for a two bedroom, full kitchen room. We have two young children, so they amenities are important to us. We were willing to accept old furniture, and even brought Febreze to combat any odors!

Our first impressions were scary. Despite being prepared (thanks past reviewers!), we were dismayed at the look of the hotel sign (major peeling - looked like it belonged to a hotel that had been long abandoned!!), and the hallway carpeting (we were in Building 500), which looked like a herd of wild animals had just come through. But those fears were dissipated when we actually entered our room. Yes, the furniture is old, and looks like it was purchased from a discount outlet store, but the carpeting was fine, and the place was huge!! The kids shrieked with delight at the sight of it all, and ran from room to room. Whew!

The place to be more than adequate, size-wise. In fact, the walk-in closet in our master bedroom was bigger than the one I have at home! And we liked that there was an extra sink outside of the bathroom for brushing teeth, etc. Sheets were decent, mattresses were VERY comfortable, and seemed to be brand new (which was, in fact confirmed by our waitress the next morning). TV's were also new, and I believe the sink and bathtub was new too.

What was NOT new, and really needs to be the next thing on the list: kitchen appliances. My god!!! Both the microwave and oven were AT LEAST 20 years old, which made them somewhat unusable. Both have dials. When was the last time you saw a microwave with dials!! We had bought a number of microwaveable things from Trader Joe's to eat while on vacation, but ended up using the oven and stove, which was faster. Example - fried rice package said 1-2 minutes; we put it in for about 8 minutes, then decided to put it in the pan to finish up. I guess the microwave guide, which said 9-11 minutes for frozen veg was right... wow. Oven also worked, but again, it was really old, and I couldn't for the life of me figure out the timer. Plus, it made the whole area really hot when it was on.

Which leads to the other main problem, which is the lack of air-conditioning in the 2nd bedroom. The one in the master bedroom and living room is great, but if you close the doors to the 2nd bedroom or use the oven (which increases the temp of the bedroom, which is across the way from the kitchen, by about 15 degrees), it gets really hot. We started cranking up the living room a/c to maximum each day when we left so the kid's room would be nice and cool when it was time for them to sleep. We forgot one day, and it was boiling in the room at night. I literally put ice on their beds to cool them down!!

Other pluses, though, were the free breakfast (very good, though not great, IMO) and the location, which is right off the highway, near to many restaurants (Five Guys Burgers and an Indian restaurant in the Ramada with good reviews are both within walking distance), and right across from a large shopping area with a supermarket, dollar store, Kohl's, Panera, and more - perfect for picnic supplies, and getting anything you might have forgotten to pack.

Would stay there again if they made more improvements, which they seem to be in the process of, so fingers crossed for next time :) Otherwise, we'll be looking for another place to stay.
