"grand old hotel"
We stay at the Pedlar when ever we are in Torrington....quaint and certainly not a Marriot, it has the charm, character, and certain attraction if you like things off the beaten path. Staff has always been pleasant, rooms are clean (but not modern), and it's down town location is convenient. It is a good value, and sure beats the Motel 1-10 for the […] money.

"Very good customer service"
We enjoyed our stay at the Yankee Pedlar and were puzzled by the varied reviews on this site. The desk staff was very helpful and friendly but the first room we were in was very large, not furnished very well, it had an odd feel to it. The A/C didn't work very well but they were very happy to move us to another room. This 2nd room was very comfortable, […] well furnished, more modern. The bathroom had modern fixtures, it was very clean and comfortable. We loved it. We enjoyed our stay and will definitely go back. There were concerts on the green both nights, historical society museum is one block away and its excellent. The restaurant across the street (The Backstage) was reasonably priced and excellent. A great weekend. My advice: Don't get the cheapest room, splurge a little for an upgrade and you won't be sorry. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"An adorable place to stay!"
Don't expect anything fancy or modern and you will love this hotel. It is simple and quaint, which made for an awesome stay in Torrington. If you approach this hotel with the right frame of mind, you will be very pleased!! :-)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Historic Inn with much needed updates. Airconditioning poor in main part of building and resturant. Did not work in bedroom (very hot day) TV in rm not working. Only one "very old eleavator" with turn dial to operate. ?? concern for fire. Would not stop there again unless hotel was updated. Food delicious in pub below was excellent!! Breakfast minimal, […] ? freshness, . Has great potential, seems like it has fallen on hard times!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"New England charm"
Everything about our stay in the hotel was delightful. It is a quaint, romantic, old New England decor hotel. The restaurant was excellent. A nice continental breakfast. The staff were always cheerful and helpful. Our only criticism was the about the bed's mattress. It was old, uneven and uncomfortable. The hotel needs to update it's mattresses.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Older in town hotel, comfortable and convenient"
This is an older New England hotel in the center of town that is clean and comfortable, but not modern. The attendants behind the counter were very helpful and the wait staff in the attached restaurant and pub makes you feel like you were one of their regular customers that may have come in after work for a story and a drink. The prices were reasonable […] along with the convenience and the atmosphere of the restaurant and bar will have me returning in the future. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great place if you prefer interesting to boring!"
While not for everyone, this hotel is very charming. Service was excellent at the hotel and at Bogie's restaurant downstairs. Food was terrific and staff was friendly. Very walkable town with great restaurants and nightlife (Bachi's!) and cool, bohemian vibe. Hotel is over 100 years old so there is wear and tear, ie bathroom plumbing is sensitive and […] work definitely needed in some of the rooms. However, for low maintenance guests looking for something different, this place beats any of the nearby options. We traveled with some high maintenance friends, and even they agreed it would be a cool little place to come back to in the fall. Overall, highly recommend! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Great time-close to Wineries on the CT Wine Trail"
Very charming Inn. We stayed here with 2 other couples and choose this place for a few reasons. First, it is close to 6 wineries on the CT Wine Trail. Second, we heard a lot of rave reviews about the restaurant Bogey’s. Yes, it is old, however it has so much charm and it was nice to see how much of the old ambiance they keep for others to enjoy. While […] the rooms are older, they are well maintained and cleaned with updated TV's and a coffee maker in the room. There is also a Yogurt Shop right there that has great soft serve Yogurt with a variety of toppings. The staff is wonderful and very friendly. Bill was super great and even after the elevator broke down; he still gave us a tour of the Inn. Couple of recommendations for future considerations: • Add small refrigerators to the rooms - It would be nice addition especially after a day of exploring the wineries that are close by so you have place to keep things chilled. • Continental Breakfast - the selections is very minimal and if you don't arrive early a lot of the stuff is gone. Recommendations: o Increase the amount of food that is put out. o Also, large cereal bowls would be nice. o Add some fresh cut up fruit and English muffins. I would definitely return for another stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Not for comfort."
I booked a double room. what I got was two separate rooms sharing a bathroom. Only one television and on climbing three flights of stairs. The only reason for picking this hotel was it was convenience to a competition we attended. Never again.Genuine Expedia guest review

The heat didn't work that well but I'd stay again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I booked a room for one night at the Pedlar due to a home/bathroom renovation. This hotel is in desperate need of renovations. The paint/wallpaper are peeling. The mattresses are uncomfortable and lumpy. The heat did not work and we had to switch rooms. It looked and felt rundown and dirty. We ended up just using the bathroom for showers but did not […] spend the night. I would not recommend this place to anyone. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Oldie but Goodie!"
We had a great stay in the Yankee Pedlar's Inn. The restaurant is part of the building, easily accessed from the lobby and the small shops on Main Street can also be accessed from the lobby too! This was very convenient because it rained heavily the evening we were there. The whole theme of the hotel is early 20th century which makes this place so unique. […] The room was comfy, had cable TV, and free Internet with very good reception. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"A neat find in Connecticut"
This was hotel was a great find and good value. A continental breakfast was included with a delightful hostess. The elevator is to die for. The wife worked and the location was extremely convenient. It is old, yet modern enough that you can live in today's world.Genuine Expedia guest review
Nice little town, motel historic and clean. Many services closed for labor day weekend, unfortuntely.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Quaint inn conveniently located"
An enjoyable walk back in time. If you enjoy antique furnishings in a clean and comfortable room, this is the place. The pub next door was a nice place to take a break and there were some great places for dinner nearby.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

breakfast is not very well organized nor very attractive nor tasty. Otherwise the room is fine for one day, it has its charms!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Always a nice stay"
I have family in Torrington and the surrounding area and have stayed here many times over the years. It's always my first choice in the Torrington area. The building is from the 1800's but it's well maintained, and not something you will see very often. If you like history, stay here. Like visiting another era. Didn't see any of the spirits reported […] to be roamiing the hotel, but that just shows even the ghosts are respectful of the customers.The staff is always friendly and accomodating, and the rooms are always clean.

"Was looking for the little boy yelling "redrum"!"
A combination of the Bates Motel (from the movie Psycho) and the hotel in Stephen King's The Shining. The fact that this place is old is not a problem; the fact that the rooms are dirty, the beds creaky and uncomfortable and overall lack of quality amenities is.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
This place does not deserve a 3. It's a let down. I won't argue it was worth the low rate I paid but don't go there expecting much.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Be careful with reservation"
We were originally put in a smoking room even though we requested non-smoking. In the ghetto smokers room there was a dirty ashtray and contrary to the reservation there was no iron or ironing board or coffee maker. I complained and we were moved after we got back from the wedding. The new room is the only reason I rated 2 on some categories. The place […] has charm but is understaffed and needs a bit of a face lift. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Basic Inn, but a little outdated"
Generally, it was ok. Rooms were decorated ok. An overall average inn stay in an older place that hasn't had any updates in a long time. The tavern was very good and conveniently located.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Do not go to the Yankee Pedlar if you are looking for the ultimate relaxation destination. It is what it is and was fine for what I needed it to be at the time; a bed and bath. I was there just for two nights attending a film festival. The location was ideal. Close to everything, but the mattress was like sleeping on a plank, which might be good for […] those with a bad back. The sheets were clean and the bath was spotless. The hotel itself is a little beat up and needs some renovations. There is a quaint bar attached that has great bar food and a fun vibe. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Old, but not charming"
Having grown up in the area, the Peddlar is a household name. With so few options for lodging in the area, we decided to try it out on our recent visit. Although the room overall was clean, the place is quite dated. For example, the TV is easily circa 1970/1980 and the teen was unable to get it to work. The phone was probably equally as old. The period […] furniture was nice, but the beds were very uncomfortable and squeaky. The bedding appeared to be clean, but I did have a moment of pause since the pillow was covered in long brown hairs. There was no way to keep the room dark, as there were only cheap plastic mini blinds, so we were up at sun up. The street side, where we stayed is also very noisy and we heard ever car go over the metal plate in the road. Upon check-in we were not given any information, such as when breakfast was served or where. If we stay here again it will only be for convenience of location.

"Great hotel. Stay here if exploring the area."
Excellent hotel with character. Bedrooms and common areas are very clean. Breakfast is simple (cereal, pastries, toast etc), bar and restaurant are excellent. This is a perfect hotel for people who want a place that is clean, safe, welcoming and happy that the hotel isn't 5 stars.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Excellent B & B"
This little inn tucked away in Torrington was perhaps one of the better bed and breakfast I have stayed at. It was conveniently located for the wedding I was attending, everything was within a ten minute drive. The hotel staff were exceptionally accommodating and friendly. It was all smiles from check in to check out. The room was pleasantly furnished […] and a nice slice of antiquity. The room was spotless. As it is an old inn, it is heated by radiators and cooled by AC window units but that is more than adequate. The water runs hot in the bathroom. I loved my stay here and would like to do so again. If you are into history, then take a look around. There is local history plastered all over the walls.. The complimentary breakfast is a modest affair. Bonus, everything is wrapped in plastic wrap so if you want to take it to go, that is the option. Overall, this is a fantastic little gem. I highly recommend the stay if you love the feel of b and b.

"Across the street from the Warner theater"
Stayed there because it was literally across from the theater. The hotel is old and shows its age but that adds to its character. There's a lot to see as it is full of history and antiques.

We would definitely stay there […] again Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Got me now, but never again"
Only 1 person working front desk, left me standing there while he went to 2nd floor to show a group a room for a party. Finally got to room. (203) foul smell in room. shower looked like it wasn't cleaned, found old shampoo bottle from prior guest(s) in shower. Air Cond. wasn't working right. couldn't find switch to lamps in room, had to use ceiling […] light or bathroom light. Please note, i always check for bed bugs no matter where i'm spending the night. I did not see any signs of bugs but the box spring was very dirty & dusty. I had a hard time sleeping knowing this & couldn't wait till morning to check out. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
What this hotel lacks in spit and polish it makes up for in character. Built as a grand hotel in the 19th century, it is now a little tired and in need of some attention. Still, the rooms are clean and the atmosphere warm. It is not for everyone, but I love this hotel and stay here often.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great night sleep"
This Inn has everything you need and a great history! I would definitely stay here again. I slept very well and the staff was great. Backstage across the street is an excellent restaurant.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quaint and convenient"
This Inn is quaint, clean, and conveniently located to Theatre and Nutmeg Conservatory. Each room is uniquely decorated with antiques appropriate to the decor. Not overly fancy and lush, but comfortable and clean with helpful desk personnel and free breakfast every morning. I stay there every time I visit my daughter and am very happy.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Charming older hotel"
Located downtown on the main street, not as a separate entity but as part of the storefronts. It is charming inside, and obviously has stayed true to the original architecture and building structure. The room was a good size, with a really deep closet. There was a large step up into the bathroom, and the light in the bathroom was turned off and on by […] a pull string - no light switch. Radiator heat, which was quite warm even on low. Our room had a roof outside the window, and the melting snow / rain poured onto it, making noise the entire night. The bed was reasonably comfortable. We didn't partake of the free continental breakfast. Laura on front desk was very pleasant. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I tried really hard to focus on the "character" of the hotel, but all in all it's a sad, shabby establishment. Everything is so old and unkempt, you can't tell whether it is dirty or clean. Peeling paint and wallpaper, worn carpeting, chipped railings, etc. The mattress is like a rock and the only place to plug anything in is in the bathroom way above […] the sink where the dryer plugs in - and the bathroom light has to be on for the plug to work. When I checked in, the hotel was nearly empty, yet they gave me a room right next to another guest. I understand it is an old building with thin walls, but why not space guests out when you can? I called down to the front desk to let them know I was having some carryout delivered (the kitchen in the adjacent restaurant closes at 8:30pm), and an hour later I was still waiting. Turns out there was a shift change and the message wasn't communicated. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I know the building is old and we did have an "economy" room but, shouldn't we have had heat and a bed that wasn't broken? If we thought we could have found another place at that late hour of the night we would have left.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Yankee Pedlar Inn subject of movie"
We stayed at the Pedlar to attend the premier of movie The Innkeepers being held across the street. You understand why the Inn would be the subject of a horror movie: Old, in disrepair, elevator must have staff person in it to use it ("for liability reasons"), so you have to call down to have someone bring it up to your floor. Nice people, restaurant […] attached to it excellent (Bogey's). The room was clean but one star accommodations. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
While this is certainly an interesting historical setting and has funky old decor, this hotel has seen better days. It really needs some paint, better sheets, towels and TV and could use a steam cleaning. The staff were nice and helpful and the location is smack downtown within walking distance of several restaurant options. If some money was put into […] sprucing up the hotel, this could be a gem.

"Historic Inn in Downtown Torrington"
This is a fabulous historic building, and the room furnishings are old-fashioned and delightful. The lobby is a bit shabby, but it has charm. I arrived on a very cold day; my room was very cold when I arrived, and it took two hours for it to heat up to room temperature. Surely, management should preheat a room that is booked! At any rate, I love this […] Inn: the price is reasonable, I recommend it to friends, and I will certainly return. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Yankee Pedlar Stay"

"Yankee Pedlar Inn in Torrington-Old Time Charm"
My wife and I stayed at the Inn on New Year's Eve,a quiet, quaint hotel that is showing it's age, but that is also full of antiques and that has a certain old-time charm to it. It is very convenient to area attractions with off-street parking and an attached resturant. The staff, while accomodating, is on the whole on the youngish side, and their lack […] of experience shows. The room was clean and full of antiques, but don't expect the antiseptic feel or amenities of a more modern facility. The town of Torrington is kind of run-down, too, but we still felt safe in the area. For our purposes with an event in the area, it was great for a one-night stay.

"Our Nasty Hotel Stay;"
The only thing that I had to say that I really liked about the hotel was the fact that it was an old building with lots of character. The night that we arrived they were lighting the lights for Christmas and telling stories to the children. That was wonderful but too bad the people were in the way and we had a hard time getting into the place to take […] our luggage up the stairs to our dusty room with the dirty bath tub and non working heater. The hotel was dusty and dirty. I asked for a room away from the stairs and when we arrived the room was next to the stairs. They changed the room and put us in a dirty room with a dirty tub and the heater didn't work. They did change the room again and gave us two rooms next to each other one for my children and one for my husband and I. The rooms smelt stale. The bathroom and sick were both dirty. We also were very unhappy with the continental breakfast. The food was old and not pleasing to the eye. I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. I do recommend that you not only clean the hotel but fix the hotel up. It is a beautiful building with alot of class and it should be used for more than a saloon setting where people hang out and get drunk and mess up the public restroom, that didn't get cleaned until after 11:00am. Thank You; Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Only reason to stay here is the location"
This hotel is old and dirty. The lobby looks oK, but the elevator has to be operated by the desk clerk, the room had garbage in the drawers and under the bed and I had to call three times to have someone show me the trick to turn on the TV. There was no heat control in the room and it was COLD! The building is not handicap accessible. There is a ramp […] out the back door which leads to a dark alley. There is also a step into the bathroom. Most of the staff was uninterested and unhelpful even though I saw very few other guests the whole week. If it wasn't in my hometown, I wouldn't go near the place. It's 120 years old and some people may say it's quaint but there's a reason it's in bankruptcy. Nobody there seems to care about the place. There is a restaurant attached, but again not handicap accessible. The Warner Theatre is across the street which is convenient if you don't mind the street noise. If you have the option of staying in another town, do it. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
