Bar Chart: Upcoming 20 Days of Waterford Hotel Rates

Rates shown are nightly rates before taxes and do not necessarily reflect all Waterford, CT discounts available. The chart reflects the cheapest Waterford hotel for each day and each star rating category.

Waterford is located about 44 miles east of New Haven in New London County. The town has a long history that dates back to 1637, when English settlers arrived at its current location. It was named “Waterford” because of its location between two rivers. The settlers built dozens of houses, as well as mills, ponds, and dams in the area. Later on, immigrants from other countries began to immigrate to the town, including the Welsh, Scottish, Irish, Italians, and Russians.

In the 19th century, Waterford became a huge agricultural town, with sheep-farming being its main activity. It was also known for its granite industry, which lasted until the early 20th century. Its granite was used in many important construction projects on the East Coast, including the Statue of Liberty and Fort Sumter. During the 20th century, the town replaced its sheep farms with dairy farms. After World War II, it experienced an economic boom, along with the construction of many new buildings and roads. Today, Waterford is an affluent town with a population of about 19,000.
