To me Farmington Inn is very nice for the purpose it serves: visiting the local independent schools (Miss Porter's School is 1 block away). The rooms are always clean and well appointed, the heating/ventilations is customizable and the towels are nice. From my experience the rooms are all about the same size so that if you are a 2 queens... More

We would be touring the New Britain Museum of American Art and needed a place to stay. Finding one was a no brainier. The Farmington Inn was ten minuets away. Initially we were put off by the three-story, massive white-brick nursing-home look of the place, crowding a wide corner if Farmington's bit of a downtown like some 18-wheeler. Happily, to... More

If you are allergic to smoke stay away from this place !!! Though the rooms all say non smoking. Not only does the air reek of cigarette smoke so does the linen. Worse still its blown in through the a/c !!! I could smell it on me when I got back to my car.

Very pleasant stay here a few wks. ago. Clean, friendly with helpful staff. Parking was no problem, the help very friendly, the room was almost a carbon copy of a room we had stayed in the night before. (owned by same group!) Rained in the evening so we played board games in the lobby! Would stay here again.

Convenient location, great staff! Close to a few different museums. Nice area with trails for running after work, nice free breakfast. No refrigerator in the room, but Stella (a very sweet housekeeper) gave me a cooler. Will stay again. 👍
