Can anyone recommend hotels with electric plug-ins near Mohegan Sun?

    I will be taking a road trip with my buddies to a concert there in late August, and haven't been able to find any hotel that will charge my Model S (which should arrive sometimes in July). The Mohegan Sun resort itself offers charging, but the room rates there are about three times other hotel rates. Has anyone made a trip there in their Tesla?

    Looking for the same information for a hotel near either Mohegan Sun or Foxwoods Casinos. Also could be in the Newport, RI area. I am planning a weekend trip the last weekend in September.

    Thanks.

    I don't know about the hotels by Mohegan Sun but if you are coming up from NJ you could use the supercharger in Milford which is between exit 40 and 41 on 95. Mohegan Sun is about 70 miles further up the road. So not ideal if you would need to stop in both directions but may be better than paying the outrageous Mohegan Sun room prices. They recently also opened a supercharger further South on 95 in Darien between exits 12 and 13 so you could stop there instead if that breaks up the commute nicer for you (it's about 90 miles from Darien to Mohegan Sun).

    The Resort does have chargers in the Hotel valet area. I emailed them asking if the chargers were available to NON hotel guests. Here is the reply I received this morning:

    I made my trip and did plug in at the Mohegan Sun Hotel valet. There are two valet services, and you have to take signs to the hotel. They did have three plugs, but they were really slow, I think about 12 miles of range per hour. I just left it plugged in there (I was the only one) overnight, and took the hotel shuttle back in the morning to pick it up. We certainly had fun, cruising up in style! Let me know how it goes for you.

    You can call the Marriott in Mystic, CT and ask if they have a charging station or a NEMA 14-50 for your use. It is about 20 minutes from Mohegan Sun.

    Thanks Jag and Bart.

    A quick look on Orbitz for the date I am thinking, the Marriott is booked up. So will look elsewhere.

    I called to verify and was told they had a charger, as their GM has an EV. When I arrived they told me they only had a 110 plug, but charger is planned for the future. I arrived at the nearby Nissan dealer with 19 miles remaining, 13 hour charge time. Hotel shuttle was pleasant and the trip was fine. Mystic Marriott will be a good stop...after the charger is installed.
