Arrived to fire engines and police cars in the hotel parking lot. Something bad went down here as cops were questioning people in the lobby of the hotel. Always causes you to wonder what happened and are we safe staying here.
This is an old Hampton Inn that has been renovated into a Red Roof Inn. The check in was ok but you need to endure the high squeaky voice of the clerk and her goody two shoes demeanor. Felt like “Bernadette” was checking me in to the hotel. Room was clean and furniture a bit upscale for RedRoof Inns but that was likely the former Hampton Inn. Seemed pretty full the night we stayed in Meriden. We booked through Expedia and were penalized for that by the front desk clerk who made comments about the amenities we lost by not booking direct with RedRoof. We saved $20 and the free bottled water wasn’t worth the extra $20. Probably another reason I didn’t like her attitude at check in.
Probably ok to book but check the other reviews and beware if you use Expedia.More
