“Really bad hotel”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 November 2007

We stayed during a campus visit to Wesleyan University. Big mistake, but we hadn't read any of the reviews. The room's furniture appeared to have been purchased at yard sales, the lock on the door seemed unreliable, and the bathroom was small. We had to pay for our two night stay upon check in.

The hotel seems like it might be convenient to Wesleyan, but the hotel is on the edge of Middletown and traffic to Wesleyan is usually heavy along this highway. You are better off spending a few extra minutes in travel time by staying in Cromwell or Berlin.

Unbelievably bad, a dump really. I'm sorry I didn't see any reviews beforehand. And the folks running it seemed not to be overly endowed with business smarts.
We made reservations online and received a confirmation for a suite for one night on the last day of February 2006. The rate was $84 plus tax. When we got there we signed in and signed a credit card slip for $100.24 but they put us into a standard $79 room that was like the inside of a refrigerator. We went back to the office to seek out the "suite". The place they showed us was supposed to have a stove and refrigerator but the "stove" was a 2 burner electric unit no larger than a hotplate but was inoperable because the coils had been removed. The refrigerator was not operating. Hardly what one would be left to believe from their website description of their "suites”. We went back to the "standard room" because we were scheduled to meet some folks for a late lunch and were running late and were tired of running across the parking lot. We decided we'd get it straightened out in the morning prior to checkout.
When we came back three hours later after lunch the room was barely warm but the heater was working overtime to catch up and we had to chase them down for a TV remote.
Sleep was impossible. The unbelievably loud heater would run full tilt for ten minutes, shut down then recycle ten seconds later. By five am we were exhausted.
We were scheduled to meet friends for breakfast at 8 and were ready to check out and negotiate the discrepancy in billing but there was no one in the office and no one answered the bell. So after waiting fifteen minutes we had to leave so we simply left the key and took off.
In effect we paid a premium rate for a hovel class room with almost no amenities but could get no adjustment on the bill.
Last Fall we took an extended trip through Washington and Oregon, made all our reservations on line and were treated with fastidious facilities and courteous service everywhere we went. And at no time did we pay more than $90 per night for the privilege.
By comparison, The Wesley Inn & Suites was a rip-off. I wouldn't even recommend that anyone even drive into the parking lot. We should have been tipped off by the lack of cars in the parking lot. In more than fifty years of traveling it has to rank as one of the worst motel experiences we've ever had.
Shabby hardly describes it.

I booked this DUMP fro one night without reading the feedback first. When I got to the hotel it looked like a dive. The guests who where there were living in the rooms. Definitely NOT A FAMILY ORIENTED HOTEL!!!! When I spoke to the management, which was thru a plexi-glass barrier with an opening big enough for money or to return keys they were not to receptive and would not cancel my room for myself and my 3 young kids. In the AD they say they have free HOB but nothing about the FREE Pornographic Channels in the room. This was discovered by a child!!!! Stay away!!
Go to the Marriott Courtyard for $89.00 a night. Well worth the extra 10 min drive.

Its hard to fully convey just how disgusting this place is.
Its dirty and stinks. The bed linens in our "nonsmoking" room were covered in cigarette burns. The door to the bathroom could not be closed. The tub didn't drain.
In addition it is unsafe. The door to our room wouldn't shut easily. "Housekeeping" left it open when they changed the towels while we were out. The windows to the room were left unlocked and would be easy to crawl into.
Stay away!

My husband and I had a two night reservation at this hotel but opted to take a hit to our credit card rather than staying even one night. Accommodations were appalling. The room hadn't been vacummed, there was hair in the bathtub, the lamp shades were yellow with dust and grime, the bed linens were full of cigarette burns, and the towels were so worn that there were 3-4" holdes where the threads were showing through. Disgusting. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone anytime soon and I can't imagine that a hotel chain would be happy having this particular room represent their product.
