AAA Inspector Notes
Located in Old Farmington Village, within walking distance of the historic section with its Colonial homes and shops. Beds feature European sheets, white goose down duvets and mattress toppers. Many of these spacious guest rooms are decorated in tasteful early New England-style furnishings and décor. Each room has a two-post sleigh bed or a four-poster canopied bed. Cordial staff greets guests as they check in. A wine and cheese social is provided for guests on certain evenings. The inn is popular with an international clientèle due to its close proximity to the famous Miss Porter's Boarding School, a highly selective preparatory school for teenage girls. Popular breakfast offerings include fruit cups, hard boiled eggs, and a make your own waffle machine. Smoke free premises. 74 units, some houses. 2 stories (no elevator), interior corridors.

Pros: jane at the front desk
Cons: the bed smelt like someone slept in it ....not good and the room smelt funky when we got there....made me sneeze...saw mold in the ac system in the breakfast room and our bedroom...would have gone somewhere else but was very tired when i got there. i always stay at the Avon Farms Inn but it was full never had a problem there and always looked forward to the bed being so fresh an comfortable. The whole hotel look very moldy on the outside too. would not recommend it. also i told the woman at the front desk when i left and she just said, "I will notify housekeeping"....that was not any help to me who slept in those used sheets!!!!

Pros: Location, size of operation, nice lobby and breakfast area small and quiet!
Cons: the smell/fragrances used in the bedrooms. Over my annual visits I ask the cleaning staff and desk personnel about this issue. No change--most likely due to ignorance of chemicals used. Also grounds/parking lot cleanliness, cigarette butts around. Outside doors dirty around the handles.

Pros: Always stay at Farmington in when in CT. Always feels very homely.
Cons: Breakfast is all artificial ingredients and plastic cutlery. After having stayed a dozen times or so, it would be nice if they remembered me when I check in.
