With a limited budget, trying to find a decent hotel in Connecticut can be a challenge. I did not get in until about 9pm, tired and the hotel is not much to look at from the outside. But a room is a room at the right time, correct? When I opened the door to my room, what a treat! Huge...

On a busy road but road noise was minimal. Room was small with little storage space, however, the bathroom was GREAT! Large space, double sinks, glassed in shower, jacuzzi tub, all surrounded by fantastic marble walls and floor. Always felt safe, close to town. No restaurant or coffee shop, room phones only connect to other rooms, no outside lines. Room...

We were not as impressed as some of the other reviewers, perhaps because we came to town for business and not for pleasure. All rooms in the newer wing appear to be different in decor, and ours was a smaller room, but worked for a short stay. This hotel is not set up for the business traveler, as the front...

We wound up searching for a hotel in New Milford after seeing the prices in Danbury and Waterbury. New Milford is, apparently, too small to rate having franchise hotels of note (and their accompanying high prices). We booked a room at the Rocky River Inn after reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, for half the price of a room in...

We were here for one night a few nights ago. Very spacious room with two queen beds, refrigerator, three burner stove with oven. Very clean room. PLENTY of room in the living area. The bathroom was a bit tight, but that was no issue. Convenient parking. Very nice staff. We would have no hesitation staying there again. Look, it isn't...

It was so great to discover this inn. My husband and I like to get away from time to time. This was a pleasant surprise for the very good price. It was quiet, the owners were kind, and the room was clean and very comfortable. I will go back again and again.

I grew up in New Milford. Back in "my day" the rocky river motel had a less than stellar reputation, and was in disrepair. However, after years of being away, i found myself coming back to new milford and needed a place to stay.what a nice surprise to rediscover the rocky river inn. It was wonderful. Clean, comfortable and reasonably...

I stayed here for one night while on a weekend trip. The room was large and nicely decorated, and the bed was one of the more comfortable motel beds I've experienced. The property was in excellent shape inside and out. The lady at the desk was very friendly. The WiFi worked well, as did the big flat screen TV. I...

Don't let the exterior fool you. We stayed in one of the new rooms and were delighted to find a modern decor, two queen size pillow-top beds, large flat screen TV, small refrigerator and microwave. The bathroom is a little small but sparkling clean. The room was priced right for that market. I would recommend The Rocky River Inn.

There were extremely few choices in New Milford, so I am glad I could stay here as the other options sounded terrible. I stayed in a standard room, not one of the renovated ones. It was fine enough--seemed clean, and I slept comfortably. They made it seem upscale with cosmetic touches, but underneath it was obviously a regular motel which...
