Drive an hour southeast of Hartford and you’d expect to find yourself in a quaint seaside town, not the country’s second largest casino. But this 240-acre compound doesn’t hold the same glitz and glamour of its Vegas cousins. Rather, its earth-toned theme garishly nods towards the casino’s Native American roots with areas inspired by the elements (“Casino of the Wind”) and the seasons (“Autumn Entrance”; “Indian Summer Garage”). The space between the twin casino areas is punctuated by feather-printed carpeting, tie-dyed furniture, howling mechanical wolves, and a glowing, three-story crystal mountain.
Bed & Bath
Save a glaring, iridescent purple shower curtain, the décor of the 1,200 guestrooms is far more subdued than the rest of the casino-resort. While some of the ample-sized guestrooms look onto the Thames River, many others look onto one of the hotel’s many expansive parking lots. Choose from one king or two queen beds in your Standard Room, which comes equipped with a 27-inch TV, high-speed WiFi (part of a $14.95 inclusive fee covering valet parking, Internet and fitness center/pool access) and a table with two chairs for working or dining.
The indoor heated pool provides a nice escape from gambling in the winter. Come summer, the front wall opens to morph into an outdoor lounge with a satellite bar and DJ booth. For year round partying options, choose between the more laid back Vista Lounge (set within the three-story crystal mountain), the gothic abbey-themed Ballo Social Club, and the hard-partying Ultra 88 Night Club. Dinner options range from the traditional upscale (at Bobby Flay’s Bar Americain or Michael Jordan’s—yes, that Michael Jordan—Steakhouse) to the family-friendly (i.e. Johnny Rockets), to the downright kitschy (Jimmy Buffett’s Margaritaville, which features a live band on weekends). The 24-hour room service is a solid option once you’ve meandered off the casino floor.
How to Get There
Booked a room through Kayak to stay at the hotel for a concert, since would be travelling over 2 hours to stay there. Unfortunately when Kayak forwarded the reservation information to the hotel the dates we selected were changed and incorrect. We arrived at the hotel to find that there was no room booked, it was cancelled because we didn't show up (which we didn't realize the dates were changed) and my credit card payment would not be refunded. The front desk was not helpful as it was clearly an error with Kayak and they have yet to respond to my emails requesting a refund. A hotel which I always recommended has now left me wanting to go to another hotel from now on.
Went to Mohegan Sun for the first time for the National Vape Convention. We stayed over night at Mohegan Sun. We were booked at The Earth tower but when we arrived she upgraded us to Sky Lounge. The Hotel was very clean and the Casino/Restaurant area with shops was very easy to navigate. Everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. The Vape convention was also a hit. Lots of fun, hoping to go back next year
We visited for a convention and overall had a great trip. There were a few initial issues but they were sorted quickly and efficiently. Every member of staff we encountered was pleasant and accommodating, many going above and beyond. In my experience, the guest services were absolutely 5 star. The restaurants we dined at were excellent and reasonably priced considering "resort inflation". My only recommendations of change would be to add fans in the bathrooms and upgrade face cloths, bath and hand towels. We found it odd there was not fan in the bathroom and it took quite a while for the steam and humidity to dissipate after a shower, which caused me to have to wait longer to style my hair or do my makeup. The buildup of steam even caused our fire alarm to go off. The towels are small and thin.. as luxurious and grand as the whole hotel is, the devil's in the details and I expected better linens. Overall, we were pleased with our trip and will consider staying with Mohegan Sun in the future.

We stayed here for a convention and was very impressed on how beautiful it was! There are a lot of shops, and restaurants, plus beautiful decor. The only drawback for me was that the beds were a little on the hard side. Other than that, it was an awesome time! We would love to go back!
