Accommodations in that region were hard to get over the Memorial Day weekend, and this place was deplorable. We made arrangements for a two-night stay through Expedia -- and maybe that was a mistake, 'cause it was paid upfront. The original room we got had a nonfunctioning in-room heater -- the outside temperature dropped to the unseasonable 40's. The manager offered another room -- which we took, given the late hour and no other choice. That room had : 1) a stench; 2) a bathtub which took maybe half the night to drain (perhaps the source of the stench?); 3) no drain plugs in the sink; 4) no working electrical outlet, except the one for the in-room fridge, which we unplugged in order to recharge our cell phone; 5) nonfunctioning coffee maker; 6) no hair dryer; 7) non-code wiring for the lamps (can't be certain about that one, but will contact the building inspector in that town to check it).

We asked to cancel the second night's stay, cut our losses for the single night we did stay, and get a refund for the second night. The manager, Mahesh (he would not give his last name), offered yet a third room for the second night's stay -- of course we declined. He refused the refund, said that could be done through Expedia. Just try that one sometime! A long phone chain of inconveniences, a succession of 800 numbers, until finally reaching a "supervisor" who would only give a first name, and whose only authority was to give scripted responses, said our only choice was to accept the alternate third room. Or nothing at all.

So back again to Mahesh No Last Name after the Expedia stonewall. He sequestered himself (there's that word again) in his office, again refused to give his full name in direct response to our complaint, and disappeared from view.

Cheap advice: 1) stay away from the Liberty Motel in Old Saybrook; 2) if you do stay, at least use a credit card, and let them handle the heavy lifting when you have a lousy experience; 3) don't trust Expedia.

We have been staying here for many many years now, for every time we come to Old Saybrook, or Groton area or if we are heading to the casinos. Very conveniently located right off the highway and you have the heart of Old Saybrook (Main Street) close by for anything you need. (shopping, restaurants, car wash, boutiques) The rooms are very clean and comfortable and the value is excellent. Also the management and help are extremely courteous and professional and always treat us like family. The outside grounds are meticulously kept and the fountain is so very beautiful. It is the ONLY place we will stay when we are in the area and we highly recommend it !

I had to stay overnight in CT for a meeting, with a very strict budget my options were limited. I found this motel on the internet and gave it a shot. The outside grounds were beautiful, I loved the fountain, I just wished it was on all night. The room had everything I needed, blow dryer, microwave and an iron. The room was cozy and tidy. Overall it was a great stay, and I would reccommend this gem to anyone who needs a place on a budget!

We stayed here for two nights while visiting saybrook and our nephew in old Lyme. The motel is about five minutes from old Lyme but also close to everything we wanted to do and see in Saybrook. Our room was clean and comfortable and we didn't pay an arm and a leg for it!! The man wo runs the front desk was friendly and helpful with directions and places to eat. We will surely visit again and stay here when we do. It met all of our needs.

Room Tip: We had non-smoking king.
