10/10 Exceptional

The best Hotel Stay Yet!
It’s very friendly and Cozy around here. I love that I’m treated with respect. The guy on site is very kind and patient. I’m grateful for this place 🙏 I will recommend anyone to come here. Especially if they have no where to stay. Also free laundry on site ☺️ Doesn’t get any better than this 👌👌👌

We had great stay! Can't wait to come back.
We had a fantastic stay at TI&M. Everything was cool. If you're looking for luxury, this place is not for you... Nor would you fit in! Accomodations are clean, relaxing and fun. If you are looking for a local experience with amazing people and literally feet from the water, sign up now! Hospitality is awesome and only a quick call away. Highly recommended!

6/10 Good

The spot is beautiful. It's a bit of a run down area but we found it to be "charming". The hotel could be better. It was not really clean and is run down. Definitely not a safe place for a woman travelling alone. The staff (one person) seemed nice and was accommodating. It met our needs for the night but we probably wont be back. If the place got a bit of a facelift, room upgrade and some security upgrades we would definitely go back. If you go I recommend the pasta house for dinner and the small diner for breakfast. But, you have to be a fan of small towns and people who are characters.

We stayed in room 201, it was clean and up dated except for the furniture, it’s all mismatched. The kitchenette is not equipped ( don’t know if this was because of COVID). So if you plan on using it come prepared with your own (there are no filters or coffee for the coffee maker. Now I didn’t ask for any, so maybe it’s being kept in the office).

Decent place to crash if you don’t require updated or nice furniture. If you want to impress someone, this is not the place to do it. It has kitchen efficiency rooms, some guests are long term. The staff (guy) was friendly. If you need a place to stay, low maintenance, close to ferry- this place will so nicely.

Right on the water with boats, submarines going by and a beautiful bridge. Very peaceful and the owner is super sweet. Also an amazing restaurant right next door.

Comfortable and roomy overall, pet friendly, too. Wish a cup of coffee was an option…small pot and one mug. Didn’t realize it was bring your own…yet Uncasville Diner served a great breakfast.

2/10 Poor

would not recommend
After driving all day in the rain we arrived at dark. The sign for the actual place was not lit up. Nor was the office or the location of the office lit up. Most everything was dark and it was hard to discern how to check in. The attendant did take us to our room and make sure we got it all right. But it was filthy it had ants the window over the bathroom sink didn’t close completely and the hot water in the shower was essentially nonexistent.When I say it was filthy I am referring to the dirty coffee filter that was in the coffee pot. It was so old it had practically started to decompose. I had read the reviews. But none of them were as negative as this one.
