The owner and people are very friendly but that's it. The pool was green and the room was musty smelling, dusty and in need of a good scrubbing. The bathroom was clean but the shower left a lot to be desired. How this EVER got a four star rating is beyond me.

This is a basic roadside motel. Easy access right off the highway. The positives: The room we had was clean and had plenty of room, including a sizable closet. There was a small fridge and microwave and there was a pool, picnic tables and grills for convenience. The staff was friendly and helpful. The wifi worked great and was easy...

I needed a place to stay last minute and found this gem through yelp. They were so kind and helpful, even at 4am. The room was super clean and cozy! The place has a very nice atmosphere with many places to enjoy the outdoors. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone looking for a place to stay in the...

I could not find a room close to Squam/Westerly. I usually stay at the Aquastar inn. The aqua has decided that their prices should be as much as a top beach side notch Inn, which it is not. So rather than pay 200 bucks for a saturday night, I found the Oakdell.I used to pay less than a 100 at...

My family stayed two days at the Oakdell Motel during the Barrett Auction at Mohegan Sun. Gail and her staff were very friendly, family-oriented and welcoming. Additionally, the rooms were clean and comfortable and the gazebo was nice. The location was convenient to Mystic Seaport and the two Ct casinos. Kim in SI, NY

A real country motel. Nothing fancy but a great value run by the nicest lady, Gail. She did everything to provide a good customer experience. The rooms are a little out dated but you won't find a cleaner room or linens anywhere. The property is charming with a pool, gazebo, flower gardens, bbq grills and anything else you need to...

Was in town for Barrett Jackson auction at Mohegan Sun. Was convenient as far as location. Wasn't expecting much. 1 night only but no more! Room was dark...slight smell of smoke. Bed not to my liking. Had to wait until 8 am to return key. How about a locked drop box for those who want to hit the road early.

My husband and I recently went on our honeymoon and were looking for a place to stay near the Beach and Mohegan Sun. We were originally going to stay at a different place but they were completely booked. Thankfully, because we would have never discovered this amazingly peaceful and comfortable home away from home. I loved it from the start....

My husband and I drive down once a year for our getaway in June since 2012, very clean and comfortable stay, the owner and staff are very kind. The shopping mall is 5 minutes away, Mystic is about 20 minutes away and so is ocean beach. We love it their. We will be visiting again this year

The place looks like a very normal Motel, and it is a very normal Motel. But it is noisy because it's located close to a highly frequented road, also at night. We could understand every word the people galked knthe room next to ours... The staff was unfriendly. Wifi was working just sometimes and if it wasn't fast. Really poor!...
