“Motel 6 New London - Niantic: Comfortable, Clean, GREAT Location!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 June 2013

(6/2/13) This Motel 6 is not only inexpensive, but it is one of the better Motel 6 (pet-friendly) properties that we have experienced. When we travel, we 1st look for area Motel 6's, but then we check available reviews & recommendations for all the lodging possibilities to minimize the risk. Why pay for fancy, when comfortable, clean, safe, & well-located will do? We just completed a 5 wk road trip, which included 6 different Motel 6's in 6 different locations: GA to ME. This CT property was close to friends, on our driving route, & near a multitude of wonderful seafood restaurants. We found the room to be updated, spotlessly clean, easily accessible, & very comfortable. The motel itself was well taken care of-inside/outside with very pleasant, professional staff members. More importantly, the grounds were devoid of sketchy characters aimlessly hanging out. We would hope to return to this wonderful motel.

Room Tip: Loved our room in the front of the building, but we do not know a lot about other rooms.

After finding largely desultory reviews for motels near Old Saybrook we decided to look just 10 minutes east in Niantic. The Motel 6 in Niantic proved to be a very good choice for a two night stay while we explored the Old Lyme, Essex, Old Saybrook area. The motel has recently been renovated and the exterior is well landscaped and kept up. We had a problem with a noisy fan in the room ac/heater unit and the management moved us promptly and cheerfully. My only issue was that the wifi was a unpredictable... it was either strong and consistent or slow as molasses. Apparently there are routers throughout the motel so this isn't an issue of one guest hogging bandwidth downloading video. However, there is a Starbucks next door with free wifi if this is a problem. I would definitely recommend this motel 6.

Room Tip: This is a large property and is just off I 95 and near route 1. We thought the rooms in the back of...

We made a reservation to stay one night after seeing a concert at Mohegan Sun. The drive from the hotel to the casino was exactly 15 mins. The staff was very helpful and friendly. The rooms are all new, fresh paint, clean and quiet. We slept beautifully. Great value for the money. We wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Very reasonable price for a newly refurbished, large, ground-floor room, spotless, pet-friendly, nice grassy areas for dog-walking. Beds were comfortable. Convenient to the interstate, good restaurants in the area. The only thing I did miss was extra furniture, like a desk and a side chair. Our room had two double beds, a credenza and a TV. No place to sit other than on the beds.

Just spent one night here, but the room we were given (ground level on the end) was spotless, nicely furnished and extremely large. The hotel is in the middle of a big renovation, and I'm pretty sure we got one of the newly renovated rooms. The front desk staff was great and we were even able to check in a early. They warned us of noise from the renovation, but that really didn't affect us as we spent little time in the room. Actually, the only thing I missed were a shower cap and shampoo, but for the price of the room this was almost a non-issue. Would definitely camp out here again.

Nothing fancy here, but fits the bill if you're looking for a reasonable hotel. Very convenient for in and off of I-95. Like the old style hotels with the outside entrance ways...just seems to be quieter (no door slams, etc.) with a pretty nice view from the balcony.

This is your basic no frills room, but it was clean, spacious with a great price. Best hotel on Rt 161! The only other possibility would be the Sleep Inn, but the other hotels on this strip of Rt 161 are absolutely atrocious!!!!!!!!

Room Tip: choose non-smoking on the first floor
