DO NOT waste your money at this DUMPY, SMELLY Motel. The miserable, grumpy woman on reception is the last type of person who should be greeting paying customers at a motel. Walked into reception and the dirty smell is enough to put you off, and that is where the free brekkie is offered, will NOT be eating anything at this...

Right off the main road. You could hear traffic but with the a/c on it wasn't bad at all. The room was nice and clean but the bathroom was very dated and had places in the tile grout and seems that had questionable spots. The breakfast was plain and did not have many options but the area was clean and...

I was very hesitant about staying at the Whitney Inn and Suites because of its ratings but was very pleasantly surprised how nice the accommodations were. Room was VERY clean (even took a black light to check the room for bed bugs and organic matter). We had a suite on the second floor that was VERY spacious, the bed was...

Got the king suite on the second floor. More like a hotel than motel room up there. Not great but not terrible. Best you can get in Hamden. Recommend but don't have high expectations. Bathroom was a little dirty some stains on different things. Bathroom did not get cleaned between nights.

We stayed here based on the newer reviews. Glad we did! The price was right and we had no complaints. It is obvious the owners have sunk a substantial amount of money into this facility. Everything in our room (218) seemed new. If the owners renovate the lobby and put a little more effort into the continental breakfast, I see...

This was a return visit following a very satisfactory visit last year when it was a Days Inn and we were again very happy with the room and its facilities. I had read a few unfavourable reviews which were posted since our visit last year, but decided to trust to last year's experience and am glad I did. Room was...

Stayed here for my son's graduation, perfect location as it was minutes from Quinnipiac Uviversity, stayed in a room with a king size bed which was very comfortable, bathroom was spotless, room was very spacious and clean. Overall I really enjoyed my stay here. The front desk ladies and gentleman were very friendly and helpful. Thanks Judy for your assistance...

The hotel is kind of old, but the manager is really nice. The hotel wasn't full, so he upgraded me to a larger room for free. The room was really clean and the bathroom was super nice. I felt safe there and the location was pretty convenient.

I stayed in room 202. It was the delux King Suite. I booked through booking.com. I paid the extra 10 dollars thinking I was going to get a luxury bathroom with the sliding glass door shower. Boy was I surprised. It was clean for what you could see however there was a stink bug in the room on the ceiling...
