Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by 22Betsy Good service great breakfast
Breakfast staff was more than willing. Hotel really needs an upgrade to make it comparable to other Holiday Inn Express than I've stayed in. Location is good.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by PHLRick Best of the Branford-Guilford alternatives
Good points: Recently refurbished room, comfortable bed, fairly quiet, clean, staff was friendly.
Weak points: We went down the street to a diner for breakfast, because the breakfast room is far too small for the number of guests wanting to use it (and the breakfast isn't that good). The bathroom sink drain was very slow, and the toilet was loose on its mountings (we have stayed here many times, and fixture problems are a fixture).
Comment: Many hotels have deflectors so that the AC/heating unit doesn't just make the curtains billow into the room. This hotel should get some.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by RH2000 Great rooms and very friendly staff.
The first thing I noticed was the well maintained landscaping, which included a water fountain. I was greeted immediately upon arrival. She was very welcoming, friendly, and knowledgable of the area. She made great recommendations on local restaurant choices. The room was very large. It made the comfortable king sized bed look small. The bathroom was large with plenty of counter space. The breakfast area is spacious with ample seating. I would definitely choose the Holiday Inn Express in Branford, CT again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Tess52 Old and tired
We spent one night on a cross country trip. This hotel was the only disappointing Holiday Inn Express so far. Although the staff was friendly, the carpet was old and stained, and the chair in the room was old and tired as well. We never could connect to the Internet, so I certainly wouldn't recommend it for business travelers. If we were to have spent any longer than one night, I probably would've switched hotels.

My family enjoyed the hotel and amenities It was clean and bright, staff was very nice, friendly, and helpful. The lady that worked in the breakfast area was always smiling, warm and friendly. The jacuzzi and pool area was great.

For a solid, reliable place to stay west of New Haven, the Branford Holiday Inn Express is where you want to go. Clean, secure, friendly staff and all the basics for a pleasant stay - wi-fi, pool, easy on and off to I-95 and Route 1 - are available. Don''t expect a memorable view or manicured grounds, but this is a wonderful property.
