Reviewed 17 June 2014

We stayed here on June 14, 2014. I was pleasantly surprised at how newly renovated and modern it was. Very reasonably priced. We were there for a concert, and the drive to Mohegan Sun was about 6 minutes away. Very impressed. Hot breakfast included.

The property was well maintained, the room was large and comfortable. The bathroom was a little small but quite adequate. The only issue was the armoire location which precluded me from watching the television as I worked and that was a little bit of an annoyance. The breakfast area was well laid out and the selections were excellent. A very...

My family and I stayed here from 5-30 to 5-31. We stayed here because the Mohegan Sun Arena was close by and we were going to see the Charlie Daniels Band concert there. When we checked in, the Front Desk person could have been more personable but besides that she was nice and professional. Room was nice but did notice...

Nice hotel, easy to find right off I81 and near restaurants and a mile from the Mohegan Sun casino. Hotel does have a shuttle which we did not use. We like the no pets policy....too many hotels are allowing them. Breakfast was good, 24 hour coffee.

This Holiday Inn Express is usually our favorite, but the last time we stayed we were disappointed. After a long day of traveling, we checked in with no problem.

This was another clean and quite Holiday Inn Express I stayed on during a business trip. My room was clean, spacious and quite. Rooms at the back of the hotel face a wooded hill with no view or noise. Breakfast was fresh and tasty! I will stay here again on my next trip.

If you like to crawl under a desk that barely fits between the bed and wall to plug in your laptop, this place is for you.
