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.
