Just needed a clean, quiet place to sleep for a few hours. This property fit the bill. It's no frills and a little old, but the staff is friendly and the place is neat and clean. It's just off the highway and maybe 15 minutes south of Hartford. Breakfast is one step above continental, but enough to get one started...

I was very pleased with the room and the service. Perfect for a business conference stay. Parking lot is rather narrow.

I was surprised by the no free breakfast because I've stayed in two other Howard Johnson hotels, missed the express part. Basic hotel to spend a night. Liked the bathroom being separated from sink area. Traveling with many kids, it was time-saving. Didn't feel too safe in the area,it was industrial. Very quiet for a traveling mom and kids.

We really appreciate your comments. I am not sure how you missed our breakfast - We offer continental breakfast every day from 6:30 AM to 9:30 AM which includes 4 types of cereal, bagels, muffins, pastry , yogurt, oatmeal, two juices, coffee. We are not in industrial area at all - its commercial/residential area. Maybe you are talking about different...

We were first greeted by the proprietor who was exceptionally friendly and welcoming. This was a nice surprise and not the norm when we travel. Then the room was another surprise: as well-appointed and up to date as any Holiday Express we have stayed in, with large clean sink area and separate bath/toilet area. We will look to stay in...

My room was non smoking and very clean. Not sure if bad reviews were smoking rooms. Bed was very comfortable. Had everything needed and all worked well. I will stay here again if in this area. Can't say enough about how clean my room was.

This is an old motel which they tried to update but there is only so much you can do with an old building. First of all, I was greeted by the overwhelming smell of curry when I walked into the lobby. We were short on time, so when the first room's fridge didn't work, we were given a queen room...
