The Q Club has a formal interior with much art on display. But it's not at all "stuffy" for visitors. The staff provides a very warm welcome. My spouse and I enjoyed our stay a lot.

I stayed at the Q Club for a week and half when I first moved to New Haven from out of state. The building and the decor are like many similar buildings in New Haven, somewhat quaint but with modern facilities. It's a country club, quieter than a regular hotel I normally stay in, and the staff were super friendly. I had a bad cold, and so asked for hot water a few times at the beginning. In the next few days, the staff often asked if I felt better, whether I needed anything, and the like. When there was an issue with the heating in my room, the manager looked around and gave me a free upgrade to the only room left, which turned out to be a much nicer suite than my original room. And when I checked out, the manager looked at the bill, realized I had stayed for quite a few days, and simply gave me a good discount right away. That was really unexpected. It struck me that the staff cared more about making guests feel at home than running a business. I would certainly recommend the hotel to others.

My daughter and I stayed at The Q Club for a trip to Yale. The staff was helpful, courteous and friendly. We enjoyed breakfast in The Carriage Room- the perfect ambiance to set the tone for our day. Thank you Q Club staffers!

The Q Club was a pleasant surprise. The building is historical and extremely charming. The room was clean and comfortable, with a nice retro decor. There was free wi-fi available and the breakfast is served in a spacious room. One of the best banana muffins I ever had! There is a U$ 12,00 charge for parking. It was a great value for money and I would definitely stay again.

First things first: the Q Club isn't a hotel, an inn or even a B&B - it's a private members' club which allows non-members to book rooms. As a result, the Q Club lacks a few of the finishing touches you would expect for the price paid, but it was far cheaper than anywhere else we could find in New Haven ($116/£80 including parking and tax) and very central. Central New Haven is a parking nightmare and the Q Club has a car park for guest use, but we were surprised to be told this was $12.50 per day - I would really expect parking to be included. There is also no WiFi in the rooms, which is something most guests will expect, though you are able to use WiFi in the lounge area. The Q Club lobby and lounge areas are very ornate, but when we were surprised at how small and dated the room was. The furnishings have clearly not been updated in some time and need refurbishment - the plug sockets were precarious, the windows cannot be opened and the bathroom needs modernisation. In addition, when we were drenched by a sudden downpour and planned to put the heating on in the room to warm up and dry our clothes, we discovered the thermostat didn't work and were told by the front desk that the heating would "automatically switch on soon" - but it never did. Unfortunately, much as I wanted to like the Q Club, I was left with an impression of it which can only be summed up by the phrase "fading glory". Breakfast was one of the Q Club's only saving graces - whilst there was no cooked breakfast there were bagels, croissants, muffins, fruit, yoghurt and more, and the dining area is very luxurious. The other saving grace is the Q Club's close proximity to Yale, as it is only a 10 minute walk away. So in summary, although I wasn't very impressed with the Q Club, as one of New Haven's only cheap and centrally-located accommodation options I would still recommend staying there - as long as you are aware that your stay will be basic and very much no frills.

Nice, old and clean rooms. Breakfast was a failure sadly.

Our stay was great. The only problem we experienced was that though the staff were extremly friendly they often were not able to help us with questions. Also, we were not kept informed about activities such as the continental breakfast, etc.

Great in every way - well located, reasonable price, helpful & cheerful service, comfortable old-style room. Highly recommended.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Q-Club. They were undergoing renovations, so there was a fair bit of paint and plastering going on, but we loved the feel of the place. We walked two blocks up the street to the Graduate Club for our breakfast, since the kitchen was closed. Fresh fruit, homemade scones or muffins, oatmeal, coffee, tea, cereals, hot hardboiled eggs- very yummy, and in a delightful dining room. We'll be back!

Quinnipiack Club is a great little hotel to stay in if you are traveling to New Haven. I had a clean room, comfortable bed, good breakfast, friendly and effective staff, and safe location. I would highly recommend this place to anyone and would definitely stay again if I returned to New Haven!

Cheaper than others (specifically twin bed room), respectable in tone (!), small, friendly staff, quiet, breakfast included. Unfortunate that you cannot open the windows (at least in the room that we chose), as the air conditioner was not adequate. Also they should be careful to inform guests that there is a $12 fee/night for parking. They didn't charge us however when we told them that we didn't know this.
4.8 on June 21, 2013
Very reasonably priced and conveniently close to Yale. The only downside is that WiFi can only be picked up in the common areas, not the rooms.

This is a sleepy old but comfortable inn at about half the price of other nice hotels in the area---my room and bathroom had recently been updated and were very comfortable. Some of the hallways, etc, are a little careworn but overall it is a nice place to stay when visiting a student at Yale.

The Q-Club has an old-world club feel to it, with a lot of history -- and an old-style bowling alley (not for public use) as well as a small gym. Perfect location for a visit to Yale or work downtown. The restaurants are open only to members, except for the continental breakfast buffet, which was ok but not outstanding. Overall, a great place to stay.

We were in New Haven for just one night for a private event. The QClub was the perfect place - well located, calm, elegant. Not newly refurbished, but the well-kept historic building (both rooms and public spaces) are beautiful in their classic way, wonderful art collection, and absolutely superb service. Nice continental breakfast included in a beautiful dining room overlooking the street. Highly recommend.

If you are looking for a pleasant staff, large clean rooms and proximity to Yale, this place can be bested.

Beautiful building but some peeling wallpaper etc. Nice service. Dinner at the grille was very good but limited menu - not vegetarian friendly.

Our room was enormous — really unusually spacious — with a comfortable bed, good lighting, quiet and mostly well-equipped (we needed to ask for a second cup and some cutlery, but most visitors probably won't be using the very serviceable kitchenette. We did, and it made our stay even better. Staff are friendly and helpful.
4.4 on October 11, 2011
You can't get a better location for visiting Yale and downtown New Haven, and certainly the price makes The Quinnipiack a bargain. Although the hallways and rooms could stand some updating, our room and especially the bath was very clean, staff friendly and helpful when help was needed. It has some beautiful public rooms and the intimacy of the private club aspect. We'll be happy to stay at the Q on return visits.

It was a very enjoyable trip 70 years into the past. Plush digs in the Exec Suite on the second floor. Couldn't afford it, but told myself I deserved to live like an Exec for one day. Only wished for a cocktail party en suite and enough chums for a couple rounds of bowling in the basement.

We stayed at the Q whilst dropping off our daughter at Yale University. It was very well situated and was within walking distance of all the places we need to get to eg the Campus, banks, overseas students offices etc. We ate at the club on the Friday night and the food (a market garden menu) was probable the best food we had during our 2 week visit to the States- excellent! We would have eaten there again however for some reason the restaurant was not open on the Sat or Sun night. The continental Breakfast was also very good but an optional cooked breakfast was not available. (this could have been an isolated incident). The accommodation was very comfortable and the public areas impressive although were undergoing renovations. (this did not intrude on our stay). We will definitely be booking in again next time we visit and have recommended the Q to several friends who will be visiting our daughter over the next 4 years. Well done to Richard, Anthony and the rest of the staff.

For those of us who are forced to look for available, reasonably priced rooms during any Yale parents' event (drop off day, Parents weekend, etc), we are usually left with The Study, Omni or New Haven Hotel ($$$$$) or the less-than-convenient chains in questionable New Haven neighborhoods. The Q Club is a great alternative---cool location, clean rooms, very good helpful staff and YES off-street parking included! I paid just over $100 per night which is 25% of what I would have paid at the others listed above. Security is good (I spent the weekend just before Hurricane Irene and there were flashlights left with very good instructions regarding safety in storms). There is a bit of an old feeling to the Club---a little care-worn and musty---but I kind of liked the charm of it vs the cookie-cutter pool smell of other hotel chains. DEFINITELY staying here again.

What a pleasant place and so near to downtown and Yale and many fine restaurants. I'll make this my home when visiting New Haven in the future.

I was surprised that this place is open to the public, not just members (as they indicate on their website). For someone looking for a clean, quiet, reasonably priced place to stay in New Haven, this is a great option. The staff was very helpful and the rooms are quiet, clean and pleasant.
4.8 on July 01, 2011
Very good rate for a location almost adjacent to Yale and the Green. They have reasonable parking, too. My only problem was that the cabled internet in my room wasn't working. (The guest-access computer was never busy, so it wasn't much of a problem.) Recommended.

Very quiet, comfortable chairs in the room, huge closet, large chest of drawers. Commode a wee bit too close to the sink in the bathroom. Continental breakfast fresh and delicious. Right in the center of town, yet felt very safe and secluded. Overall a very classy place.

This was our first stay at the club in 25 years. We had a spacious junior suite, which included a mini fridge and 2 closets. Plenty of room with tasteful decor. Flat screen tv, iron and hairdryer in room and many outlets for all of our electronics and high speed internet included. The Club staff from management, to catering, to waitstaff and housekeeping was competent and welcoming. We had one issue with bedding that was rectified immediately and pleasantly. We felt at home during this busy time. Our private dining experience for 45 exceeded all expectations, our guests are still raving about the food and the service. The Club catering staff worked closely with us until the time of the event and made the coordination and management of 9 families go smoothly. The food was outstanding even in comparison to a far more expensive and exclusive dinner experience the next night at other establishment. Continental Breakfast of fresh fruit, yogurt, cereal, muffins and pastry are self serve in a quaint dining room with beautiful light. We also enjoyed the omlet station on graduation day. The Q club's environment is classic and elegant decor with down home friendly service. A perfectly wonderful visit.
4.6 on April 20, 2011
This is an excellent location, right off the Green in New Haven. My room (a junior suite - I believe their mid-level room) was extremely spacious. The decor of the club and the rooms is certainly dated, but everything was very clean, comfortable, and fully functioning. It's too bad the grill room and bar wasn't open later, and the breakfast included with the room price was strictly continental, but everything was very good and I would stay there again. Also, the parking behind the club was convenient and very reasonably priced.

My only complaint about the Q Club was that the front desk clerk failed to call our taxi at the prearranged time - but it worked out OK as when we came downstairs and reminded him, the taxi came very quickly and we were still on time to our train. Location/ proximity to Yale campus was great! Enjoyed reading about the history of the Q Club and experiencing it too

The manager, Richter Elser, runs the hotel with customer service top and foremost. I highly recommend this establishment, and its location is within a minute of Yale campus and a short walking distance to restaurants, shopping, and theatres etc. Breakfast was included and perfect. I did not eat other meals there, so cannot comment on the dining room.

My wife and I like to stay at old clubs and we choose this one almost every time we visit New Haven. While the decor is a little dated, the rooms and suites are spacious, clean and quiet. Importantly, the beds are comfortable. Best of all, you can't beat the price for accommodations like this right next to Yale's campus. We have not tried eating dinner at the club, but the dining room is often crowded on the weekedns, so the food must not be bad. Breakfast fare is pretty standard (continental style, with hot breakfast usually available on request). Staff is very friendly and accommodating.

I lived in New Haven for (10) years and never knew thais place had rooms for rent. It was very cute and a bargain considering the alternatives in the area. The staff was exceptionally nice and the continental breakfast was exceptionally tasty. Room was adequate, if a little small and the hallway leading to it could use a little repair, and the parking was a little pricey, but all in all this was a good solid value for New Haven Downtown. Worth the visit.
