Stayed at this location on a recent trip, good location for us and a very clean hotel. Breakfast area and food were also very good. Brian, a member of the front desk staff was immensely helpful and he also dealt with people in a very generous and efficient manner.

We needed a place to stay overnight after a family gathering nearby. I'm very happy I chose the Holiday Inn Express in Branford. Rooms have been renovated recently, and are in good condition (and large). All staff I interacted with were very helpful and friendly, from the front desk, to housekeeping, and the staff in the breakfast room. Speaking of breakfast, this hotel has figured out how to provide a hot breakfast on weekends, despite COVID-19. My family and I slept well, and look forward to visiting this hotel for future trips in the area.

Zero soundproofing (and laughable enforcement of “no smoking” policy). Impossible to sleep with people stomping above our heads, running down the hall and audible conversations from adjacent rooms. Have to crank up the a/c just to drown out some of the noise. Amidst the pandemic the hotel is barely occupied - and they put everyone in such close proximity?! Really disappointed.

I'm certain that they will consider your feedback for future hotel improvements. Again, thank you for letting us know about your experience. Your comments will help us continue to improve on this aspect and to host you better in the future. Yours in hospitality, Virgil N. Case Manager IHGService

I stayed here for 2 nights while I visited family. My room was spacious and clean. Breakfast was grab and go due to the pandemic. But I was fine with that. I didn't use the pool or gym. Brian and Kathy at the front desk were friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

Very disappointing. We had stayed here before without a problem. Did not get a good night's sleep the whole stay. People partying in rooms. Playing loud music all night. Yelling screaming pounding on doors. No breakfast while stating breakfast was included. Will not stay here again.Thin walls heard people walking or running above us all night.

Hi ritnabby17, Thank you for your visit. Our hotel provides a great night stay in a simple and quiet environment. I saw your comments and I’m sorry for the issues with the loud noises, the pounding on the door, and the missing breakfast. I understand your disappointment because for me breakfast is the most important part of the day. Your message was forwarded to our management and we have taken immediate action to prevent these issues from happening again. I sent you a private message so we can discuss your stay further. I hope you give us the opportunity to serve you again. Best wishes, Oscar C. Case Manager IHGService
