For the price point I was very happy. It was in East Hartford which is an iffy area but we had a great time. Staff was nice. Room was clean. Everything worked as it should ! Would stay there again and recommend it to family and friends !

This is a really good low-cost place to crash. My only complaint would be that it's noisy and the walls are thin. The staff was great. Very happy with everything else.

Liked: Cleanliness
I just wanted a small clean room with a bed, a working bathroom and a tv and that's exactly what I got. It's not a 5 star hotel but you're not paying for that. Honestly my only complaint was the wi-fi, it barely worked and usually when it did work it was too slow to really do anything with. But overall I had a simple, comfortable experience.

The distance to Hartford hospital was good, but the bathroom window did not close all the way and did not lock. I had to stuff hangers in it to keep is closed. Also I could not figure out how to turn on and shut off tv. Remote would not do it
