I checked in at 2:00 pm, my ID was stolen so I have to wait to get my license back and it takes two weeks here in the state of Connecticut. The man on the phone told me I could have a room for $287.50 with tax. When I showed up on a Wednesday he gave me the run around....

Hotel location was easy to find and looked to be in a maintained condition. Our room was clean and in working condition but we had to plug everything in for items to work including lamps, fridge, tv and microwave. Room was extremely hot and stuffy since air conditioner took a few hours to cool room (would have been nice if...

Room was comfortable though small. AC worked, refrigerator didn't. Bathroom clean and functional, management polite. No other amenities whatsoever, but we got a good night's sleep at a very low price.

So I booked this because my boyfriend and I needed a place to stay while on the road. I was beyond disgusted. The room was stuffy, ceiling had water damage, bathroom just sucked, the bed was horrible and stiff, TV sucked and the lighting was horrible. The bed had what looked like half a headboard and no pillow cases. Had...

Very basic motel. Nicely sprung king bed with slightly sub standard pillows. Appeared to be fitted with queen sized sheets. Did not tuck in either side and were short of the base of the mattress. Fridge was turned off when we arrived and after turning on, was still room temp when we left at 7.30 the next day. All night...

How did this place get a 4.3 star rating? It's run down. The room smelled. The toilet wouldn't flush down toilet paper. The manager said the toilet was working properly and issued me a plunger in case I had problems during the night. The entire free breakfast offering all fit on a five foot long counter.

We stayed on our way to New England. Got in after midnight. Had to speak to the desk clerk through a glass. There was a lamp in the room that was flickering more off than on. We joked that someone was warning us via Morse code. The manager attempted to fix it saying the plug was just loose but the...

I booked this place based on some positive reviews and am very let down. The check in was quick and painless... well there's the good. The room is beyond tiny, (microtels are way bigger if that gives an idea) sucks for closterphobic people . They have very old tv's, bubbled wallpaper and carpet, and stained linens. The carpet (even though...

This isn't the prettiest hotel with the best amenities, but I knew that going in. It was a cheap option when I stayed in town overnight, exactly the way I expected. The room was clean, the staff was friendly; the only thing I was disappointed by was the "free breakfast", which consisted of orange juice and doughnuts. Not even toast?

Had to spend a quick night in Hartford, and this was the most affordable combination of price and rating. It's a bit off the beaten path (which is less desirable) but not too remote. Check in was quick and pleasant. As with so many hotels nowadays, this one has no lift, and even with overnight luggage, a second floor was...
