Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn New London
Really liked this hotel
This was a good hotel with a spacious room. I loved their fitness center, pool, and jacuzzi after a long day! The breakfast/restaurant was also very good. The only complaint I had (and the staff was very accomodating) was that room service never showed up when I had requested. The front desk said they had just started the service, however. Not sure how accurate that is, but that was really my only complaint. It is very accessible from I-95, and I enjoyed my stay. The price is also very reasonable.
Enjoyable stay at the New London Radisson
Though tucked away on a hard to find street, the New London Radisson has a very helpful and friendly night clerk who 'talked me in' via cell phone much as a control tower operator would guide an airplane lost in the fog! Upon arrival I found a nice hotel with well appointed rooms, a welcome shelter after a day filled with bumper to bumper holiday traffic. Hotel is very near Mystic Seaport and was a bargain by comparison.
So close to Mohegan Sun and Foxwoods Casinos
Thanks for all other TripAdvisor reviews about this hotel that helped me decided to visit Mohegan Sun first before checking in the hotel and visit Pequot Museum that next to Foxwoods after check out the hotel. I have found this is great arrangement that after visiting the great Mohegan Sun Casino for a few hours and after dinner came back to a full rest at Radison hotel at New London.
Some more detail info that could help others who may stay at this great hotel yet visiting Mohegan Sun Casino. You take exit 79A on I-395 North to Mohegan Sun, remember the last buffet is 10pm at weekdays and 12 midnight at Friday and Saturday nights. It is very easy to get to the hotel taking CT-32-S instead of going back to I-395-S; it is faster and much shorter; 10 minutes is what it should take.
After checked out the hotel, leave the car at the hotel's FREE parking lot, and you can walk just one or two blocks down to Amtrack Union train station and the Long Island Ferry (you can take Ferry ride with your car to Long Island) and tour the downtown New London.
Taking the car down more, you can reach the river and ocean side; there is nice park and beach and boardwalk ...etc, very nice ocean view. I was surprised to find the Pfzer global research center there too.
When you go to Foxwoods Casino, or the wonderful Pequot Museum next to it, you can take I-95-N, and exit 88 to take Rt 117-N, the Rt-214-East; it is very smooth, and the river view is wonderful. At the exit 88 on Rt 117-N, you will hit Groton Marriott, very nice hotel to check out too.
It is such great location of this Radison hotel at New London, right off exit 83 of I-95-N, but wonderful price. I paid close to $200 to stay at Mohegan Sun several times, and close to that at Foxwoods, and some $169 at Mystic Hilton, but I got $40 from Amazing-Bargains this time at this wonderful hotel; I felt it well worth, after visit Mohegan Sun first, and able to visit beach after going back to Pequot Museum having great lunch there.
Other than the great location of Radison Hotel, the staff there are great, very polite and nice as other reviews have mentioned. The hotel is relatively new and clean and the room is as great as I need.
There is no high speed Internet, but after all sorts of activities at Mohegan Sun, Kids Quest, shopping, dinner ...etc, all we needed was a nice sleep after checked in at midnight.
Another drawback is that the check out time is 1 hour earlier than general hotel, but 11am check out time seemed to gave us one more hour to visit beach. This is same check out time as Mystic Hilton, but I was nicely given extension if I need, the front desk told me when I checked in.
There are 3 nice on premise restaurants, all looks great with many ballrooms and nice swimming pool, but we did not get a chance to use them because as I said there are just too many nice places to visit nearby before heading Providence RI on the way to Boston Hyatt ...
This is great hotel that I will sure wish to come back again and again, and I would sure to recommend whoever want to visit all the nice places nearby from Mohegan Sun Casino to Foxwoods Casino, from Pequot Museum (we are member) to USS Battleship and Submarien (free) to Mystic Aquarium, DNA Museum at New London (we are member), to Mystic Seaport ...etc on the way to Providence RI and Boston area.
Great Hotel Near Mohegan Sun
Stayed here for a night on our trip to Mohegan Sun, it's about 10 miles to the casino, located in a quiet area in New London but very close to the ferries. Got a good rate from Expedia ($99). Clean and spacious room, bathroom and lobby. I would stay here again. Did not try the breakfast at the hotel restaurant so could not comment on that.
high price did not equal high quality. very clean, nice front desk. food/bar slooow. stay in Mystic if you want anything to do at all outside the hotel.
Loved the Raddison
My husband and I stayed at the Raddison Hotel in New London, CT, (3/19-3/21)and were pleasantly surprised. The rooms were spacious, very clean, and the bed very comfortable. The only problem was the shuttle driver on the weekends (going to the casinos), the driver didn't stick to his schedule, he was late dropping off and picking up, and he was not friendly at all. Other than that we would stay here again.
We stayed at the New London Radisson for two nights and enjoyed our stay. The hotel is in great condition and probably the best hotel-style lodging option in the New London area. We managed a priceline rate of $38 per night (Sat & Sun nights), so you can't beat that price. The bed wasn't the most comfortable and they have very small windows. Bathroom was a nice size as was the room. Noise was never a problem. Would gladly stay here again.
Enjoyable stay @ the Radisson
I stayed @ the Radisson in New London, Ct last April. The hotel was very nice. The rooms were very comfortable and spacious. I rec'd a great deal for the hotel through Priceline ($50/night). If you decide to stay in New London or anywhere near there, I suggest you try the Bank Street Lobster House. The food was great there.
My girlfriend and I stayed at this hotel for two nights in the fall and were very pleased. I think we paid about $80-$100 on Priceline. The rooms were spacious and very clean. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom area was very spacious and clean. The hotel has a decent-sized lobby that is very modern and clean. The best part about this hotel was the indoor pool and hot tub. The pool was very large and warm and the hot tub was great. There was also a small fitness center that we did not use. The entire hotel complex looks like it is very modern. The location was ideal considering that many major cities and casinos were only a short drive away. I would recommend that you stay here instead of the pricey casino hotels. There was plenty of parking too and we stayed over a weekend. I will definitely return to this hotel if I am ever in the New London, CT area.
I was impressed in general by the hotel. Although I only stayed one night, the staff was friendly and very helpful. The standard room was pretty large, and everything was extremely neat and clean. The large bathroom was the most surprising of the entire stay - not only did it look very modern and clean, it was stocked with everything from a tube of toothpaste (in case you forgot, which I did!) to a small sewing kit.
The hotel is very tasteful for the afforable rates it offers. I woud definitely stay there again.

We had a slow morning followed by a bike ride with daddy and some much needed playground time. The kids really enjoyed running around after spending 11 hours in the car yesterday.
Today was a big day for Lincoln. At 7 months he stood for the first time

Some of the original furniture is still on display. They built things to last in those days.
Another section of the building contained a museum and what I would call a trophy room. Strange things you would not expect to find in a public government building. There was even a two headed cow.

Our sort of plan was to drive half way but I was feeling remarkably fresh and just kept going. We skirted around Albany (capital of New York State) and figured anywhere after that would be good. About every 20kms there are exit ramps to clusters of Comfort Inn, Ramada, Best Western etc. and there's usually about half a dozen together. We would pass one lot and say, "We'll stop at ...
