“Right off the I-91”
Reviewed 4 July 2006

We stayed at the Courtyard Wallingford for one night, as we were travelling. We chose this hotel over the sister Fairfield Inn right across the street because of the indoor pool and whirlpool. The pool was very clean, and warm.

Any problems were addressed right away by the front desk. We had a backed up toilet and the maintenance man came right away. The front desk guy, Peter, was very helpful and friendly. We had car trouble, and he directed us to the nearby repair shop, about 5 miles away. They give excellent written instructions on a map to anyone who asks.

There is a 24 hr Walmart that is 2 miles down the road. A one way taxi costs $10. This hotel has no shuttle service. It is a bit isolated from any other businesses, other than the Fairfield Inn across the street. There are many businesses/restaurants near the Walmart.

This hotel is very clean, and well maintained. The inner courtyard is very beautiful with landscaping plants and a gazebo. The hotel itself is an older concrete balcony type hotel that has had some architechtural updates. It obviously used to have drive up access to the rooms from the parking lot into the sliding glass patio doors, but this is no longer used, as the landscaping extends right up to the patio doors. The room itself has standard Fairfield/Courtyard bed spreads. The room furniture is a step up from the Fairfield. The headboard unit was very nice with built in reading lights.

We used an interstate booklet walk in coupon which made this stay very affordable, and an excellent value. The breakfast buffet is $9 adults, and $6 children. You can also order from a menu ($7-$8). If you didn't care about the indoor pool, I would suggest staying at the Fairfield across the street, as that hotel includes free breakfast.

The only negatives: This hotel still charges for local calls (50 cents). In today's market, I just feel this is unnecessary. There is no pay phone in the lobby, so you have no choice.

Also, we had to make the hide a bed, as it was not prepared. We had to call to get sheets/pillow for this bed. The front desk knew that we needed this second bed when we checked in. We declined the only available 2 bed room as it was a smoking room upon check in. Other than these very minor irritations, this is a pleasant place to stay.

We stayed here for one night on our way home from Atlantic City. We got exactly what we expected, a nice clean room, comfortable bed for a reasonable price. We would stay here again.

My family and I are from NYC and we were in Connecticut to celebrate my aunt's 65th birthday bash. So we stayed at the Courtyard in Wallingford over night. This was our first time staying in a Marriot Courtyard hotel. Let me start by saying that we will return. Almost everything was perfect from check in to check out. The front desk staff was very friendly. Our room was modern and clean as well as spacious. The lobby area has computer work stations for those that needed it. The hotel as a whole was very clean and modern looking. The location was perfect, as it was right off the highway. I reserved this room with the breakfast rate. And the morning breakfast buffet was delicious and bountiful. They had "make your own" waffles that were delicious, scrambled eggs (but you could opt for made to order eggs) potatoes, cereals, fruits, juices, coffee, tea, bacon and bagels, danishes, etc. Everything was delicious with the exception of the juices. My only other complaint was that the swimming pool was closed for repairs the weekend that we stayed. My son was a bit disappointed. However, he did take solace in the video games. Besides that our stay was great. We've already made reservations to come back the weekend of my husband's birthday.

We were visiting family in the area and chose this hotel because of the location, pool and suite layout. We were impressed by the cleanliness and the location for us was perfect -- right off 91. The pool was clean and better than expected. The breakfast buffet was very reasonably priced and quite good. For the price we paid, we don't think we could have done any better. Would recommend the suite highly for families (4 - 5 people).
