Delicious complimentary cookies every night in the lobby, as well as coffee and hot chocolate. The pool is better than you might expect for a 2 1/2 star hotel. The same goes for the fitness room, which has TVs, plenty of water and different devices. .
Everything was so impressive that I just assumed there would be a refrigerator in the room, as an added perk. Free WIFI, although navigating to get it is a bit tricky, since when you select it there remains a $4.95 per day charge onscreen.
So accommodating! So polite! They were simply amazing!
No refrigerator (a must), no microwave ( not do much)
Everything seemed clean and it was close to many attractions.
The room has cold air leaking in around the heating unit on the outside wall and left a cold draft blowing through the room. Room 509
Room was modern, large size, clean. Staff super friendly.
everything was great except one thing
I got locked out on the pool deck without my key
Location and rooms are always clean.
Shower temp is just barely hot. This needs to be adjusted so that travelers who want a hotter shower are not frustrated. This is NOT a way for a hotel to save money!
Friendly staff, good breakfast
I thought we would be better walking distance to the mohegan sun arena but the way the area is we were unable to walk.
OK, not great. Missing some basic ammenities...no fridge or microwave. No movies offered on the TV. Shower head very tall and I was unable to reach it. (I'm 5 feet tall.) The counter in the bathroom also much taller than normal. The towels at the pool were about the size of a dish towel. The walls were quite thin and we could hear the people next door's conversation. Also, the mapquest directions didn't bring me directly to the hotel.
Everything that you would expect of a hotel at this price point. Only negative comment is that the address we received on confirmation didn't jibe well w Mapquest. Signage (near the Rd) would help. Other than that, decent breakfast, convenient location. Not 100% positive, but this appeared to be a fairly new property.
My over all experience was great. The hotel was easy to get in and out of. Check in and check out was fast and convienent. the room was very clean and modern. The only down part was that there was no fridge or microwave in the room other wise it was good. Their are many restaurant choices within minutes of the hotel and a walmart across the street if you need anything else.
Stayed here two nights in Aug. with three children. Very nice hotel!! Very Clean!!! The staff was awesome and very attentive! Would stay here again!
