When visiting Redding, Economy Inn is a great choice to consider. Free perks include self parking and wired Internet. Rooms feature bonuses like refrigerators and microwaves.
Pros: For a 2 star level motel, this was a somewhat pleasant surprise. The outside of the motel probably resembles something like the Bates Motel in Psycho, but the inside was clean, recently remodeled and better than some motels I have stayed in past travels.Cons: Hot water wasn't hot. No complimentary breakfast or even coffee pot in the room. No ice machine. No Kleenex, very little toilet paper, and only soap...no shampoo. BTW, I am from California, not CT!
