The location is great, we liked the indoor pool and fitness center. There was plenty of parking and the staff was overall very nice. I stayed a couple of years ago and the facilities could use some freshening up.
The original room they gave us had a strong, bad odor. They did not agree, but moved us. The air conditioning in our second room did not provide cold air and the wifi connection was horrible.
Standard Holiday inn.
Could be updated a little but fine for an overnight stay.
Cleanliness, location for our needs, friendly and helpful staff.
This hotel is an ideal location for us since we travel from Poughkeepsie, NY to Branford, CT for the sole purpose of kayaking around the Thimble Islands. After a day of kayaking, we love coming back to a clean, comfortable room.
The hotel was very clean, quiet and convenient to all locations we were interested in visiting.
the room was very cozy and the breakfast was real good.
There is a coin laundry in the hotel but neither a change automat nor the option to change five dollars into quarters at the front desk. Poor for such a big company.
spaciousness of room
placement of bulky armoire coupled with curve on bed footboard left only a small passage to one side of bed
The hotel was clean and the breakfast was great.
Everything was fine.
Trying to make it from NY metro area to Cape Cod, I was slowed by horrific snow and sleet storm. Using Priceline, I booked room at this Holiday Inn Express. Had I known there would be pool and exercise room, would definitely have brought swim suit etc.
A little far from the place I need to visit but Ok.
Awesome breakfast spread. My kids get a kick out of the 'pancake machine.'
Front desk staff a bit grumpy.
Location was perfect for what we were doing. Price was decent. Room was clean .
Carpets and furniture were old looking - needed to be updated.
The room was spacious and the breakfast made it easy to start the day.
The water pressure in the shower was not great.
We stayed the night only. It was clean and breakfast was good.
convenient location, free breakfast, clean room, in-room refrigerator
creaky floors and thin walls
I've stayed here many times and have always been completely satisfied. Clean, comfortable, and roomy rooms, good breakfast, and courteous and helpful staff. Great location, close to many restaurants, and close to downtown Branford.
My husband and I had to find a hotel in the area last minute, and were concerned that we wouldn't find comfortable AND affordable in the same hotel. We were surprised and very pleased with the Holiday Inn Express in Branford. The room was clean, the front desk staff pleasant and helpful, and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast(included) was very good, with hot choices and fresh everything!
New hotel. Great rooms, feather pillows, comfortable beds, large t.v.'s. Greate value for the area. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast included egg, sausage, cut fruit and many other items not on a 'continental' breakfast. This hotel is worth the extra $* to $* compaired to less expensive hotels. You will be happy staying here.
Nightly hotel charges were a big concern for us but we decided to pay a little more for the possibility of getting an 'average' hotel room. What we received for just a little more was a lot more than excepted!! Quality service from all the staff, clean rooms, above average continental breakfast, friendly assistance from the members at the front desk for local directions, 'hot spots' which added to the pleasure of our family vacation & a very nice, hotel room at a hotel that had only been open for a little more than 1 year. Great location! You can walk to places to eat, movie theater, Walgreens & Highway access! We do a lot of travel between work and pleasure and again, rate this hotel a high plus! You will be disappointed in any other type of hotel experience!
Great new hotel with a beach/sea decor. The bedding and furniture are plush. The staff was very friendly. The pool area was beautiful.
For a new hotel it was very disappointing The staff was of no help took for ever to check in ,when i asked to talk to a manager she was even rudder I would find another Holiday Inn and stay away from this one .
