I wish I took pictures. I was in a room that hadn't been remodeled yet and it was disgusting the walls looked like they were breathing. Way over priced for a trashed hotel. I never took my shoes off. The carpet looked 30 years old.

We will be working on the second 1/2 this fall. I do hope you give us another chance to show we can do better.... More

Good hotel. 10% off your meals at nearby Diner and Friendlys when you show them your room card. Great location, close to all Mystic attractions. Only issue was that our room keys didn't work at all times, I had to keep going back to have them fixed. Pictures and hooks were missing from the room but it seems they are... More

Chose H-J for mother-daughter getaway. While the check-in was courteous, room was clean, and housekeeping decent, forget trying to sleep with "paper thin" walls that allow you to hear everything in the rooms on either side of you. First night, the guests on either side were having very animated conversations till wee hours of the morning of which I was... More

The hotel was clean. Room was your average room. All I can say is the walls are super thin. Every morning the people we shared a wall with woke us up. They weren't even yelling. Also every night they smoked and could smell it in our room. Our room was no smoking and am sure theirs was also.
