I reviewed the Thames last summer and have been back about 4 times. Always a nice quiet stay, close to everything I need. Some small issues that I brought to Wayne's attention were taken care of and made for an even better stay this time. ( quiet fridge).The Thames is a reasonably priced place, especially for families and people traveling...

The Thames inn is a great place! full kitchen, microwave, full size refrigerator! Our plan was to go deep sea fishing on the "Hel-Cat" party fishing boat which is right next door to the thames inn but due to the threat of hurricane Hermine the boat did not go out. we decided to fish right on the dock & in...

Quiet, affordable, and near area attractions. Refrigerator, stove, dishwasher, coffee maker, and furnishings make this feel like a getaway condo. The staff bent over backwards for us. You can fish off the pier or just sit outside and enjoy being so close to the water. Beautiful beach and free state parks nearby. Fishing charter boat, ferry to Martha's Vineyard right...

I was concerned about the mixed reviews but came anyway and couldnt be happier. Love the location since I have 2 daughters at the US Coast Guard Academy. They stayed with me for 2 days before school starts again and then. We've been in about 10 different hotels and they liked this the most. The room is large and clean....

We had a good stay and accomplished our goal of cooking all our meals and staying out of restaurants, saving hundreds of dollars on our trip to visit our son, and we prefer to cook our own food because then we know what is in it! I'm a good cook so it's no bother for me to whip something up...

Email sent and never returned after stay: Hi John, I needed to reach out to you about our stay. Wayne was nice, and helpful but never present. No one was ever around the office when we needed something. It was clear he was in the dark from the time we arrived. He admitted to not knowing of our arrival and...

This hotel is at the seaside with a nice view of New London across the harbour. Although the place looks aged but redecoration works is going on. Our room is big completed with fridge, cooker and oven. We cooked our dinner and ate outside the room while enjoyed the sunset. As we did not drive, the manager offered to take...

I have stayed at their other property recently then decided to come here, being familiar with the area (which includes the don't miss Paul's Pasta, see my other review on that, Fort Griswold, and other excellent attractions). The view is nothing short of spectacular, see my photos, and the room is spacious and very well equipped for a longer stay...

It gave good military discounts so for us it was relatively cheap, and the people were very nice and helpful. But it is older, with a DIY'er remodeling it, so if you are looking for "4 star hotel accommodations" you will be disappointed. If you are looking for a decent place to sleep, it should meet your needs.
