We stayed for one night at this cute inn, the beds were comfortable and the it came with plenty of parking and a decent continental breakfast in the morning. The rooms get a lot of light in them, so if you are awoken by bright light first thing in the morning remember to bring a blind. I'm not sure if... More

I have stayed at Cos Cob Inn at least once a week for the past year, so I think that I have stayed in each of the 12 rooms by now. All are beautifully furnished and impeccably clean. The staff is delightful, including Linda at the desk and all of the cleaning and serving staff. I love the little personal... More

We stopped over on our way from Newark to Boston after a flight from the UK & found Cos Cob Inn to be a clean & quiet respite just off I95. The staff leave you to your own devices, which may not suit all, but was fine for us as we were passing through with our three children(22,21&16) so we... More

I love the large chain hotels when I'm traveling on business. Still, the Cos Cob Inn was a great way to get a break in a week of business hotels. Good internet service, lots of plugs to recharge my gear, excellent Continental breakfast (that category name doesn't do it justice). Only problem was that I hadn't been there before and... More

What a strange place this is. Lovely to look at, but if you arrive and/or leave, as I did, outside of their hours (8AM to 5PM) there is no sign of innkeeper life here. And during daylight, you have to march across the street 100 yards to a marina office to see a person at "reception". That's the only office.... More

Otherwise the location really close to the freeway exit is convenient (we flew to Newark, from where it was less than an hours drive), but unfortunately the noice of the freeway was really loud at all times. At least our room on the first floor (the honeymoon suite) was not the quietest. Otherwise the inn was most pleasant place to... More

Stayed at the Cos Cob for our Anniversary August 19th. We arrived the night before, found the "front desk" across the street got our keys and entered our room. And what a room, it was on the first floor, all by itself near the back of the house - we were able to go through the back door so it... More

Breakfast was lovely and it was only 10 min walk to the train station which then got us into NYC within 40 mins! The only thing is, we didnt know that we had... More

This stay marks the third time we have stopped at the Cos Cob Inn for the night while traveling from Maryland to New England. After leaving MD after work, around 4:30 pm, and driving through some heavy rains, arriving at the Cos Cob around 9:30 pm was like heaven! Conveniently located off I-95 on a peaceful street in a quiet... More

We can echo the previous reviewer of the Cos Cob Inn not being what we expected--not bad, just different. The Inn is in a large house, but has a distinct hotel feel to it. I don't think it should be classified as a Bed & Breakfast by any means, since breakfast is just a continental selection and not a meal... More
