The hotel was very clean and the people at the front desk very friendly. The rooms were nice and clean. Microwave and refrig were a bonus. The bed...king size very comfortable.....four pillows...could have been a couple more for the size of the bed. The free breakfast was about the same quality as other free breakfasts. Eggs, sausage, cereal, yogurt, fruit...

We stayed here for the third time a couple of weeks ago. It was a long stay--6 nights--because we were visiting family. I think the two best things this hotel has going for it are its location and its staff. It's right off the highway and there's a grocery store and a CVS (or maybe Walgeen's?) very nearby; it's also...

Stayed here 4 nights and found the entire staff to always be extremely friendly and helpful, a rarity these days. Special kudos to all the front desk workers, and to the gentleman who prepares the breakfast in the morning for his always great attitude and his willingness to go the extra mile to accommodate my family's food allergies. The breakfast...

This hotel was ok, we stayed here because we went to a wedding & it was recommended by the bride & groom. The hotel is a new construction so that was nice. We didn't really have time to experience any of the amenities but we did see that there was pool and it looked small but clean. The rooms were...

I've stayed at this location several times and have never been disappointed. The rooms are clean, the pool is an unusual plus, and it comes with a continental breakfast. Since I work for the government, I can also get the government rate. But their regular rates are still better than anyone else. In addition, there's plenty of free parking, a...

We just stayed at the hotel for 5 days and enjoyed the hot breakfast included as well as the fitness room. Wish we had brought bathing suits as they have a nice warm indoor pool. Our room could use new carpeting and I understand it is happening soon. It was not torn or anything, just some stains. Very convenient location...

My daughter and I recently traveled to Oneco CT and our friend recommended we stay the night at the Holiday Inn Express in Plainfield. This hotel has the usual Holiday Inn comfort, cleanliness and reliability. We were happy with our room and comfortable. Hotel is easily accessible from main highway and an excellent place to stay

We checked in to this hotel on a Wednesday. Our stay on Wednesday and Thursday night was great...ok breakfast (no banana's!), room was a little tight and smelled somewhat stale, but overall decent. Friday night came and the casino "party" crowd hit the hotel with a BANG. You can hear EVERYTHING in this hotel; toilets flushing, tv from the floor...
