Stardust
Reviewed 8 June 2014

We booked months in advance for a planned week-end of shopping and gambling. Arrived at 6 p.m. and our 2 queen bed room had apparently been given away to someone who arrived earlier as he put us in a king 1 bed room. No apologies, no explanation except that was all he had. He saw what we had reserved. Would never come here again. Prepare for a bad Porky Pig imitation with a swear word in his joke he tells everyone. No suggestions where we could stay on a Friday night. He really didn't seem bothered except when we said we wanted a refund. Fortunately, we found a great place closer to Foxwoods with a shuttle bus, very nice rooms and a big, free breakfast.

Room Tip: Get there early if you want your reservation honored. Apparently they overbook and take first come...

Would strongly recommend. Very clean, nice staff, nice room, continental breakfast, close to the highway, affordable. We'll go back because it's close to great sites and food. It's also near gas, donut shop, and other conveniences.

This motel is about fifteen minutes away from Foxwoods Casino. It's a family run, well kept, clean place to stay. The owners are very nice as are the rooms. Nice clean tiled bathrooms, nice carpeting that looks almost new, comfortable king beds, fridge, micro, and large flat screen TV. We stayed there twice and will every time we go to Foxwoods for a weekend.

We love to stay at this little out of the way motel...Very clean and the owners are so friendly. We find it so convenient to all the casinos in the Ct area and we hope to keep coming back to Stardust...

The good: Room was very clean, manager was friendly upon arrival, helped find a restaurant that would deliver during snowstorm.

The bad: Manager would provide nothing but "Sorry about that, but it's Sunday and I can't get a plumber" when told that our shower would only give us, at best, lukewarm water. Bed was VERY soft, so if you like it in any way firm, avoid.

The ugly: Made our reservation on Travelocity and explicitly chose the "Pay at hotel" option so that we could pay cash. Upon check out, the manager insisted that we already paid with the credit card we gave online. I protested, but gave up the fight quickly as I realized nothing would be done.

If all you want is a clean room with no expectation of help if anything goes wrong, it will be fine. Personally, I will look elsewhere next time.

Thank you for your review. I would like to apologize for any inconvenience you may have been cause. I would have offered another room to be able to take a hot shower but due to the holiday weekend, we were completely full and did not have another available.

I had a nice clean room and a good night sleep. A very nice greeting from the manager and his dog gizmo. It was nice to have a continental breakfast before my long ride home. We will return for another great visit.

We were looking for a place near Foxwoods that wasn't ridiculously overpriced for a weekend night. We had stayed in Hiiltop Suites a few times but for a Saturday night it definitely is not worth what they were asking. Stardust is terrific, a gem in Stonington. It's a great value. The room was wonderful. Best sleep away from home, Great shower, clean and homey. The owners are wonderful and with having Gizmo there (sweet loving dog) it made us feel a little homesick for our pets.
