Let me start off by saying the staff we encountered was very nice and friendly, and breakfast was wonderful but the hotel itself left a lot to be desired. It was looking very run down. Our room was extremely small and cramped. The floors were not properly vacuumed (I found toe nail clippings near our window..ewww!) Maybe the room size...

Stayed with the kids and it had everything we needed. Easy check in and friendly, helpful staff. The pool and hot tub area were great with great hours from 7am to 10:30 at night, which is great compared to many hotels that close their pools way to early for teens and pre-teens. Breakfast was served for 3.5 hours in the...

I will say this that I am a very "no frills" type of traveller. I don't care about wifi, etc that is or isn't offered. I only look for a comfortable sleep in a clean room. 1) Our room was quite small for a family of two adults and two children. A person has to walk sideways between the bed...

Stayed for a softball tournament, when we booked they were doing pool renovations but assured us that the pool would be open when we came (booked 2 months in advanced). We had requested to put everyone close, made sure they had the names and all. They put most of the team together (2 families got stuck on another floor, when...

Stayed here overnight on my trek from Plattsburgh to Pittsburgh. No issues with a late check-in. Staff helpful and informative. Rooms were nicely kept, although there was no outlet next to the bed on either side for my phone charger. Both lamps ran to an outlet behind the bed. May have just been the arrangement of the room?

The staff was very friendly. No problems there. The facility is somewhat dated. The mattress w a s worn and the room looked like the maid had given it only a half-hearted attempt at cleaning. The toilet had been used and not flushed which made me wonder if the sheets had been changed.

This hotel is conveniently located near both Mohegan Sun Casino and the arena. It is also easy to access the major highways from the property.

The staff was friendly and accommodating, the room was clean, and the breakfast was pretty good. I would not recommend booking through the Holiday Inn Express website.
