While the hotel room was bare-bones (exactly 1 soap, 2 towels, 2 washcloths, 1 floor mat for a room with 2 beds), it was clean and without blemish. The AC works well enough to keep the air circulating on a cool night. We stayed on a Saturday night and the some 3-8 guests in the area were loud 11:30pm-2am. Cigarette smoke bellowed in through the AC, rooms on all sides had doors that slammed every time anyone went in/out of their rooms. Would not stay at that location again.
I liked that the room had a microwave and refrigerator also air and heating unit. plenty of space for drawers and hanging space even though the sheets, blanket and spread were clean, they were damaged with holes and stains and the ironing board leaned, had to keep adjusting
The price was lowest in the region. Clean bed and bathroom. No offensive aroma in non-smoking room. Walls dirty, furniture dirty. Cold air rushing in through door jambs. no continental.
We had all we needed for our two day stay at the ABV Inn. Loved the interior especially the vintage bathroom.
Clean safe room at good price
Great deal for the price-full size fridge and microwave. A little dingy but clean. Would have liked a guest services book in the room just to get an idea of what was in the area.
Friendly staff, clean room. We extended our stay again and again to FOUR nights. Huge freezer and fridge. There was nothing to complain about
The inn was very affordable. There was evrn a full sized refrigerator in the room! Overall, the "Bang for your buck" was amazing! Yes the bathrooms are a little dated, adorable pink and white tiles, but they were clean and well-maintained and that's more important than how old equipment is. Also the air-conditioning unit is solid! The room cooled off so quickly I had to lower it! While the bed was very comfortable, the pillows were super thin and they only give you three on a king sized bed. But Target was just down the road and we bought an extra pillow (a whole $4). Just make sure you bring an extra pillow or two for yourselves on your stay!
It was a nice location, easy to park and had a liqueur store and dunkin donuts right next door so it was convenient.
Excellent value, quiet, good-sized room, friendly staff, excellent location. Microwave and fridge are nice extras. The entrance to the expressway to the Putnam Bridge in Hartford is just a block north. This is an older motel that has been remodeled. The bathroom still has the original 50 year-old pink and white wall tiles, which clash with the newer floor (beige) and tub (mauve). No fan in the bathroom, but otherwise satisfactory.
The price Everything else
Just a basic motel room, good for a short stay at a good price. When I first got there (around 6 pm), there was no one at the desk. A few mintures later, someone walked in the door and just stared at me. He never introduced himself or gave any indication that he worked there, then simply said, "Yeah?" To which I replied that I had a reservation. He knocked on a door and someone came out, asked for my ID and credit card and gave me a key without any conversation or instruction whatsoever.
The Grantmoore is a dirty, dangerous dump. As a middle aged tough male traveling alone I am used to rough conditions so I tend to ignore warnings, but this was too extreme for me. There was not even a nightstand for my gun so I slept with it loaded in the bed. Locks do not work, doors look like they have been forced open and bent, smell of drugs and suspicious characters everywhere, everything in the room in severe disrepair. I wouldn't even recommend it for short stays with prostitutes- I have my pride and would be ashamed to bring a prostitute there.
Leaving, which I did after inspecting the room. On my first attempt, was. Given a key to a room already occupied. Shortly thereafter, was solicited by a resident prostitute. I declined. The second key opened a room reminiscent of some third world country though, frankly, a small child leaning on the door would have opened it. There was a pro forma lock, but no real deadbolt, and the gap between the door and the doorjamb would have easily allowed anyone to defeat the lock. There was dim fluorescent lighting, but even this was sufficient to reveal soiled sheets, complete with cigarette burns. Unless you're down and out, or feeling that you need to be a little more depressed, save yourself the trip.
