Pleasant and knowledgeable staff. Off season. Perfect. Quiet. Peaceful and convenient. NO amenities. But, whatever. We weren't there for that. Great view. Private beach. Close to Foxwoods Casino and interstate. We will be back.

2/10 Poor

Horrendous. The description is false. No restaurant on site. Private beach is used by anyone, I watched them walk over each morning. Filthy. No coffeepot, microwave or phone in the trim. Asked for no service because I really didn't want anyone in my room. So I requested a do not disturb sign when I told them, because no I didn't even get one of those. I came back to find it on the floor inside my room, towels gone but nothing replaced. Mold, take in the wall, gritty sheets.... Unlocked windows that I didn't we've e en realize opened. Felt completely unsafe. Party hotel, blasting music, guests leave their room doors open so they could drink their own alcohol in the room while enjoying the beach and music from the bar don't look for office staff, they leave. I should have left when I got there and there was an officer in the parking lot dealing with someone.
