    Let start with the positives.... Yes, this is not a chain hotel and the entrance lobby and elevator are original and pleasant (though not Wow!!). The staff were polite. The hotel advertises itself as being the cheapest in New Haven. If this is the case,...More

    Greetings, Carryl. The Duncan does have cable TV, but I don't believe there is in room coffee. There is no restaurant, but there are several restaurants within a block and many more within several blocks.
