My GF and I stayed 2 nights in the Valiant room.It was the only room available for our trip but it was perfect.You are a few steps away from the river and bridge and the views are spectacular.Wake up early and watch the sunrise it's so relaxing.Walk to the left of your room about 50 feet and grab some ice...

Lovely little b&b right on the river in Mystic. We had a beautiful room with windows onto the river - great views. Breakfasts were lovely with a mixture of both cold and cooked items. A lovely addition was sherry and home made cookies each afternoon. Lovely friendly staff too. Mystic itself has great places to eat, shop and tourist attractions... More

Made last minute reservations as we needed to get away from it all for a few days. Neither of the rooms I liked (those with water views) were available for both days. No problem - they put us in one room for the first night and moved us to another even nicer one the second. We just left our bags... More

Great stay with granddaughters! Isabelle, first night, Rachel, second night. The whirlpool tub the biggest thrill for both of them. Movies in bed. Visiting friends in Noank. Dinner at the Seahorse! It was a mini-vacation and enjoyed by all. Friends visited the room and other family saw it and I would definitely stay there again. I tried for reservations for... More

This wil be my shortest review to date: wonderful staff, perfect location, beautiful rooms, common room that is delightful with snacks and beverages, and board games, and also includes a delicious and full breakfast. We are definitely going back and extending our stay next time.

A wonderful shoreline haven in a typical Connecticut fishing and boating town. Very comfortable and situated in the heart of Mystic. All you have to do is walk out along the dock to reach the Route 1 Bridge, or take a few steps inland to reach a multitude of shops and cafes on Route 1/ Main St. An early morning... More

The short version- one of the best places I've ever stayed. When we arrived, we were greeted warmly and, despite our room not being ready, we were checked in and parking was explained. We wandered the town a bit, and came back when our room was ready. We were taken up to the room, and made to feel as if... More

The Steamboat Inn is indeed blessed by an ideal location on the Mystic waterfront that encourages its guests to leave their car keys untouched and opt instead for exploration by foot. The town itself provides ample benches along its streets and waterfront for people to sit and relax in the midst of the Mystic summer season hustle and bustle. The... More

This place is just wonderful-the staff is great-the room was spectacular-the breakfast(and especially the cook)is top notch. The rooms are about 5 feet from the river and about 50 feet from the main street. Very quiet and refined. Tip-try for a second floor room as the docked yachts in front block the first floor view.

Aside from its priceless location, the Steamboat Inn is rather unassuming from the outside. Don't let that fool you however, as the accomodations and staff are nothing short of first rate. (Outside of hotel makes a cameo in "Mystic Pizza")
