I live in the Hartford area and work in New London. Two and sometimes three times a month, I am booking an overnight stay at Oakdell to avoid the 120+ mile round trip. Gail Googins, the owner is a very special person with genuine warmth and compassion for the customers she interacts with. My rooms have always been impeccably clean,...

They say they are dog friendly but they really aren't. Bathroom molding along floor coming off wall and moldy. We were told the rooms were cleaned twice a week but it was only done one time and the beds never got made. There is constant road noise. No screens in the windows and they only will give you one key....

We had a very comfortable stay at oakdell motel on our recent trip to mohegan sun, Thanks to Gail Googins, she is so sweet and friendly. It felt like we were at home. I would surely recommend a stay here. Little strip malls, restaurants, mohegan sun and other casinos are a few minutes drive away. The rooms are clean, ice...

The owner is very nice and was more than helpful. But that was as good as it got. To start, it looks as if this hotel has not been renovated since it was built. Considering the current owners have been with the property for 44 years, I would guess it was built in the late 60's or early 70's. And...

Stayed two nights while on getaway to Mohegan. Gail was very friendly and welcoming. Grounds are well kept. The room was smelly and the comforter old and tattered. We left mid morning the first day and when we returned after 5:00 the bed was still unmade and we had to empty our trash. We left and returned a few hours...

The staff was very friendly and make you feel at home. They have a grill by the pool and a gazebo. The back of the motel has benches to hang out in their quiet property. Accommodating parking for trucks . Maid did a great job cleaning up my son's popcorn crumbs .

Tge website certainly makes this place look much better then it is, after reading the previous reviews I figured go for it! Without bashing the staff who were very pleasant I will just speak about the things that left a "bad taste" in my mouth. The price was more then I was quoted in the phone, the bathroom had tons...

Absolutely a wonderful place to stay! Everyone is so nice there and accommodating. I loved the way the hotel's rooms are different looking! Makes each time seem like a new experience all over again.
