We experienced an extremely affordable no-frills motel with convenient parking. Our room was clean, but we did not like that the bathroom sink was outside of the bathroom and in the middle of the sleeping area. Surprisingly very quiet, contrary to the reports of a friend who also stayed there, but in a different room. This is the kind of... More

This is a clean, budget motel that will provide a safe and comfortable nights sleep. There is no breakfast but I didn't expect any. There are options nearby for that. The rates are very reasonable. Our room appeared to be in the middle of some renovations as there was some unfinished drywall repair and missing tiles on some walls. Not... More

This motel is well-run and comfortable, as well as reasonably priced. The only drawback is that the walls are thin and noises from next door can be bothersome. No coffee maker in the room, but coffee and tea are available from the font desk in the morning. The bed was comfortable and there was a fridge in the room. Stayed... More

I have to admit I wanted to leave when I went to check-in; I have never stayed at a hotel where the clerk is behind glass. I instantly had second thoughts about security and what might be going on at this hotel, although Branford is a safe, quiet little town. In any case, we were already paid so we spent... More

We stayed here for one night after a long, hot day at Mystic Seaport. We checked in late due to bad traffic on 95 and it was very nice to flop into a clean room with a good shower. The one minor improvement would be the ice machine; it was practically empty at 8:30 pm. The property seems family run... More

My girlfriend and I don't have a lot of money so we decided to go with this place. Perfect for the price. Very clean and safe. Nice hot water with pretty good pressure. A/C cold but did turn off once during the night. No complaints here. Stay here!

This is our third time staying at an America's Best Value Inn across the country and they never disappoint. You would think that because the price is cheap that the Inns will be dumpy.
