All day coffee, tea, soft drinks, water, snacks and fruit. It is located central in a part of Mystic that offers restaurants, shops, and much more. Parking is... More

From the ease of online reservations right through heading back home everything worked perfectly. Julie met us upon arrival and gave us a quick orientation of the Inn and showed us to our room. The Inn is located right on the Mystic River and only the dock separates the building from the water. If given the chance, Carolyn is a... More

All I can say is that our experience at The Steamboat Inn was fantastic. The view from the room was very peaceful, overlooking the river. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable of the area, with recommendations on dinning and places to see that enhanced our stay. Definitely going back in 2016

The Steamboat Inn is one of our regular stays while enjoying the Christmas holiday in Mystic. We particularly like the wood burning fireplaces in the upper rooms and decanter of port and cookies that can be found each early evening in the breakfast room. The Inn is very conveniently located withing easy walking distance of a number of fine restaurants.... More

My husband and I chose the inn for our 20th wedding anniversary for its peaceful, beautiful and comfortable atmosphere. The Annie Wilcox room, with its nautical-meets-Victorian decorative theme and fireplace, and full view of the river earns its A+ rating. The Yuletide decor in the George C Moon common room was a delight. The high-quality full breakfast and coffee, and... More

The size of the inn is perfect; the people are nice; and the breakfast is tasty. But what I love the most is that the inn is right on the river. Staying in one of the rooms with a water view (the majority of them) is the next-best thing to being on a ship.

The inn was a nice place to get away right in the middle of the town. The river was right outside the window which was nice view. I was not expecting a full breakfast in the morning. Staff was nice , room was ready at the time they said it was. I will go back again.

My husband and I have stayed at the Steamboat Inn on many occasions. The location is perfectly situated right in downtown Mystic, where you can walk everywhere. We were recently there from 12/13 to 12/15/15 . We have stayed in several different rooms but our favorite is the Marie Gilbert, where a wall of windows face the Mystic River. The... More

We had a beautiful room overlooking the river. The room itself was large and immaculately clean with a sitting area and real working fireplace. The bedding was new and very comfortable. We have stayed in Mystic several times and this was the best place by far. This place is definitely an Inn and not a true B&B, don't expect a... More
