"Our 1st room was shabby and had the noisiest AC I've ever heard; it was like sleeping in an airport hangar. The hotel staff apologized and promised us an upgrade to a suite for our 2nd visit. However, our 2nd room was much like the 1st. No breakfast, and the restaurant was closed. Sandwiches were available from the fridge in the reception area, but they were expensive and disgusting. The bright spot was the front desk staff. Don't stay here.2021-08-14"
"Great room. The hotel staff was accommodating when we requested a late checkout. Stay here.2017-07-31"
"Great place to stay. The bi-level room was interesting and different. It felt more like home with a full kitchen and half-bathroom on the 1st level, and bedroom and full bathroom on the upper level. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful. I definitely recommend staying here, and try the restaurant next door.2016-05-19"
"Not a good value. The front desk clerks were more occupied with their phones than with welcoming guests. I was disappointed that the hotel restaurant and bar weren't open. I expected better.2022-01-24"

"I liked the landscaped grounds and the cleanliness and comfort of the hotel. The room was clean and spacious, and I appreciated the fridge, quality desk chair, comfortable sofa and side chair, and the sink in the living area. The heavy drapes didn't close, so there might be too much light for some. No heater or exhaust fan in the bathroom.2018-07-02"

"An average hotel just a 15-minute walk from Rentschler Field. Not located in the greatest part of town. I was disappointed that the elevator was broken. The room was clean, though, and the AC was cold. 2022-06-01"
"The hotel was in dire need of refurbishing. The elevator was out of service, and being older, it was hard for us to climb the stairs to the 3rd floor with our luggage. I wouldn't stay here again.2022-04-01"
"Great hotel. My room was spotless; you couldn't find a fingerprint in it. I loved the balcony. Unfortunately, there were some unruly guests across from me, so I didn't rest well. You can't go wrong staying here.2020-04-01"
"This is one of the best hotels I've stayed in. The room was clean and had a microwave, fridge, coffee maker, and hair dryer. The only issue was that my room was right next to an AC that turned on and off throughout the night. Pleasant front desk clerks. The restaurant was a bit expensive, but the food and service were good. 2018-04-02"
"Good hotel near CCSU. I'd stay here again.2016-11-21"
"Close to the college and sports fields. The room was small but clean. Kids from sports event teams weren't always quiet. Nice staff. There was a small lounge with a good bartender. The food was edible, but try local restaurants instead. I'd stay at this hotel again.2016-02-24"
"The hotel room was beautiful and comfortable, and we appreciated being able to bring our dog along. Bring your bicycles; there are lots of nice bike paths in the area. And check out events at the Performing Arts Center at Simsbury Meadow.2017-07-18"
"There was a problem with the toilet in my hotel room; someone came up right away but couldn't fix it, and neither could the maintenance worker. Eventually I asked for another room, but wish it had been offered before I had to ask.2023-10-11"
"Close to several attractions. The hotel room was nice.2016-10-11"

"The hotel was well-appointed and had nice amenities. However, a barking dog from 7-11 PM made it difficult to relax. Good breakfast, with choices to meet the needs of most travelers. Convenient to an excellent restaurant and pizzeria. No elevator.2023-05-01"
"This hotel was wonderful, and all the employees were friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay.2017-10-03"
"This was the dirtiest hotel I've ever stayed in. The room reeked of cleaning products, and the carpet turned my feet black. No iron, and only one waste basket. Garbage was blowing around the grounds. Don't stay here.2015-07-17"
"I've stayed at this hotel before and always had good experiences, but this stay was negative. There was hair in the bathtub and in the corner of the bathroom, and the bathroom door wouldn't shut. The faucet leaked and didn't work properly. The drawers in the room looked like they were chewed on by a dog.2020-08-14"
"Good experience. We had a concern with our room, and the hotel clerk was quick to resolve the issue. We were impressed. The staff was courteous and professional. My kids really enjoyed the pool. Great layout and food at breakfast. Stay here.2016-05-12"

How Do We Define Motel?
To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
