    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!

    I liked nothing about this hotel it was filthy and disgusting I would never stay there again nor suggest to anyone else!!

    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.

    Very pleasant folks at the counter. Easy parking. Easy access to upstairs room. No elevator but an easy flight of stairs. Nice coffee maker, microwave, refrigerator with freezer space for my small ice bags. Nice window covering for afternoon nap with no sun. Great location for Mohegan Sun. Suggest using no highway GPS setting and going route 12. Avoids traffic. Turner Classic Movies. Quick and easy wifi connection. Enough plugs that I did not need my extension cords.

    AC took a while to cool the room. Around it the wall needed repair. The toilet insides left the water running after a flush unless adjusted each time by hand. Freezer needed a good defrosting. Room could have been cleaner. Stuff in one drawer. No coffee was left out. I did not ask as I did not need it. Next time I'll bring a filter and my own ground coffee.

  • 8.8

    Loved the convenience of the continental breakfast!

  • 5.4

    The bed was comfy. Great pizza place next door. Convenient to the casino

    The fact that cars were on blocks, parking lot looked very scary

    Bed was very comfy and was in a good location to Mystic Aquarium and the Village.

    Outdated and thin walls (I was woken up twice during the night by someone yelling)

  • 7.0

    Comfortable. clean

    Rooms need smoke alarms!!!

  • 3.8

    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

  • 2.8

    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.

  • 7.4

    location was great, comfortable bed

    did not know they served breakfast in a room off the lobby, other then that it was fine

  • 7.4

    It was good for a good night sleep after a long day at Mohegan sun
