Always satisfied.

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, Free Internet
I've stayed here many times and have always been completely satisfied. Clean, comfortable, and roomy rooms, good breakfast, and courteous and helpful staff. Great location, close to many restaurants, and close to downtown Branford.

pleasantly surprised

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
My husband and I had to find a hotel in the area last minute, and were concerned that we wouldn't find comfortable AND affordable in the same hotel. We were surprised and very pleased with the Holiday Inn Express in Branford. The room was clean, the front desk staff pleasant and helpful, and the bed was very comfortable. Breakfast(included) was very good, with hot choices and fresh everything!

Great hotel for the area. Great value

New hotel. Great rooms, feather pillows, comfortable beds, large t.v.'s. Greate value for the area. Staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast included egg, sausage, cut fruit and many other items not on a 'continental' breakfast. This hotel is worth the extra $* to $* compaired to less expensive hotels. You will be happy staying here.

EXCEPTIONAL HOTEL/STAFF/LOCATION

Nightly hotel charges were a big concern for us but we decided to pay a little more for the possibility of getting an "average" hotel room. What we received for just a little more was a lot more than excepted!! Quality service from all the staff, clean rooms, above average continental breakfast, friendly assistance from the members at the front desk for local directions, "hot spots" which added to the pleasure of our family vacation & a very nice, hotel room at a hotel that had only been open for a little more than 1 year. Great location! You can walk to places to eat, movie theater, Walgreens & Highway access! We do a lot of travel between work and pleasure and again, rate this hotel a high plus! You will be disappointed in any other type of hotel experience!
