Nice place to stay. Will definitely stay here again next time we go to Connecticut. 10 mins from everything we were in town for. Raj at front desk was super helpful l with directions and making us new keys. Will definitely be back here for every softball tourney we attend at the Sportsplex.

My husband and I enjoyed our overnight stay at American Inn. Overall the Inn is quaint. Not very modern but exceptionally clean. Beds were overly firm but the shower made up for it with the great water pressure! Would recommend for a brief stay.

The aesthetic of the room was very home-y and clean. The sink, shower and toilet all worked properly and my phone charger did not fall out of any sockets. I would have liked to have some sort of coffee maker in the room, even a cheap one, so I do not have to brave the cold to get a cup of joe in the morning. Otherwise, a good experience overall and I would recommend American Inn to anyone traveling to that area.

For a motel it was very nice. I was nervous because of the price, but pleasantly surprised by the room. It was clean and spacious. The bathroom could use some updating, but it was still clean. Beds were comfortable.
