    Fabulous

    Front desk personel were very friendly and helpful. The room was updated and included brand new super comfortable mattress.free breakfast was ok and served the point. Little musty smelling in halls but room was fine. Good for quick stay. Convenient to Foxwoods and Mohegan Sun.

    Mr. Patel is the proprietor. ... The stay was VERY-fine, and it was an excellent stay ... even though, a short one. Mr. Patel provided an excellent breakfast-type buffet, and the room was spacious (enough), well-ventilated (in air-conditioning), and with easy access to parts of Hartford and/or Interstate (or other) routes. Mr. Patel was always available, for helping a tourist, at any time, and was gracious and very helpful. ... His motel is an excellent choice, although seemingly "out-of-the-way", for certain passengers and travelers ... who might use the route to certain destinations. This is a really, terrific place to consider!

    The country setting.

    Let me list everything: odor, covered up by room freshener and room plug- ins, the very large whole/dip in the mattress, bed spread was soiled and stained on the underside, blanket was old and tattered, bottom of bath tub had black spots, side of the toilet had pee down the side of it, toilet seat was well worn, floor of bathroom had dirt in corners, continental breakfast was the worst I've ever seen, and presentation was terrible! I would not recommend this motel to anyone! Howard Johnson should be ashamed of the owner/management of this location.

    Not much

    The place is a dump. There was drywall spackel or popcorn paint on the linens. The sprinkler had is painted so a safety issue if a fire occurs.. There was food crumps on chairs and table. Open electrical boxes at hallway heater. Paint over brush every where . Cars in parking lot in pieces full of trash and food

    I'd give 2.5 stars, but for the price we paid, it was ok

    Smelled like piss in the hallways. Asked for more towels and they said to male sure to put the old ones put to be washed. What kind of hotel doesn't have an over abundance of towels? Didn't have a fitted sheet on the bed either, was just a sheet folded under. Other than that, no issues for price paid.
