Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Outbackwack2 HIE; Newington, CT
This was my second time to this hotel, but this time I was a walk-in (not registered) and the front desk associate greeted me warm and friendly. There was a room available and after obtaining my information she acknowledged my platinum status and efficiently checked me in. My dinner was then a couple of chocolate chip cookies they seem to always have handy :-)
The room was clean and the temperature was comfortable. Everything was more than satisfactory except I had trouble getting my cell phone adapter to work in any of the lamp outlets for some reason; I had to use a wall outlet... no biggie.
The bathroom was good and the shower worked and felt great. The breakfast was the typical fare but was fresh and hot where needed. Checkout was fast and they asked if there were any problems, which I reported none.
Overall, my stay was more than satisfactory and I would highly recommend this and other HIE locations.

Only complaint is layout of hotel and needing to go down a looong hallway and change floors just for ice.

The person who checked me in was very helpful and pleasant. The room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. There was a nice assortment at breakfast and the food tasted very good. The staff was very accommodating. I will stay here again when I'm in the area.

This facility is just right in all required areas of for a hotel stay for the business traveler. With the exception of the fact that the hotel room no longer supplies you with a microwave. Don't plan on reheating your left-overs.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Killer33 This Hotel Stinks!
Although I stay here monthly for business and the staff is friendly and pleasant (except for manager who lacks a personality), this property has a bad odor! So much so that my wife comments that all my clothes and suitcase smells when I get home! I have taken to bring a can of febreeze with me when staying here however the smell is in the halls and rooms and there's no escaping it! I may need to find another property to stay at in this area as I dread the smell before I even get there.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by moonsaloon Nice place to stay, could be great.
Conveniently located near New Britain, where we were visiting family.
The staff, especially Cassandra at the front desk, were friendly and accommodating. We requested, and received, an early check-in due to scheduling of a family event.
The room was well appointed, but there is a need for better attention to room cleaning. A heavy patina of dust on most surfaces, visible, sticky hand prints on the windows, toiletries not replenished. Again we did ask for early check-in, but some things appeared to have been overlooked for some time.
The pool was clean, and breakfast was excellent.
Overall a nice stay, with some attention will be a great stay. A very convent location and affordable. We have stayed in other hotels in the area while visiting family and look forward to making Holiday Inn Newington our regular place to stay.
