“Loved it!!”
Reviewed 2 July 2013

We stopped here in a rainstorm (on our motorcycles) on our way up the 12. Soaking wet, we walked into the bar (doubles as the front desk) in our motorcycle gear and were immediately greeted by the friendly Fred's Inn staff. The room was clean, spacious and accessible, the price was more than affordable but the staff made all the difference. We had drinks in the bar then moved on to dinner. The menu was extremely varied and we were not disappointed with our choice of meals. The wine list was acceptable and the service was excellent.
The next morning, we had problems with one of the motorcycles and even if the Inn's restaurant only opened at 11, the staff were super helpful in setting us up with a repair service in Norwich (TJ's, also highly recommended). Had lunch before we hit the road (another excellent meal), said goodbye to the great staff and moved on. Will definitely be back!!

Traveling to norwich we checked freds inn out. We first looked at the room and took it right away, clean, clean and comfortable. Stayed at a comfort inn near hamburg Pennsylvania the night before and freds inn is far more nicer and ten times cleaner than comfort was. Would definitely recommend. Oh a the restaurant is nice as well and the drinks were drinks like they are suppose to be.

Stayed one night while traveling on business. The room was very spacious with a sitting area. I appreciated that the air conditioning wall unit was already on upon my arrival. I did not eat at the restaurant so I have no opinion to offer. Check in was a bit strange as the bartender is also in charge of checking in guests. I would stay here again.

We had the honor of being the first diners at the re-opening of Fred's Inn and were more than satisfied! The remodeled dining room and sports lounge are bright, spacious and comforting. The seafood buffet was outstanding! Everything on the buffet was flavorful; the extended dessert bar with chocolate fountain and Belgian waffle center was delicious and beautiful! We also stayed in the jacuzzi suite at their hotel. The rooms are super clean and much much larger than most hotel rooms. Super comfortable and wonderfully happy and helpful staff made our visit awesome!

I have stayed at Fred's Lodge many, many times. I find the accomodations to be spacious, clean and very comfortable. Love the fact that they have a refrigerator and microwave in the room. Theyalso have free WI-fi, coffee maker, ironing board & iron . Fred's Inn is one of my favorite places for dining. The food has always been consistantly good and the service has been impeccable. Lots to do and see in the area and it is my first choice when going to Norwich. Can't wait for my next visit.

Staying at Fred's Inn was not only convenient for us but the room was clean, the staff were friendly and quite professional. The food in the restaurant was great and they were very accommodating to my diet. We will stay there again for sure. Thank you.

I visit Fred's Inn frequently while visiting the area, and have never had a bad experience. The rooms are clean and comforable, maid service is excellent, and the restaurant is top-notch. The bar area is comfortable and casual, while the dining rooms are elegant, but not uptight. Service is friendly and efficient. It is always an enjoyable stay.
