Overall, the Whaler's Inn was a decent place to stay. The receptionist was friendly and helpful. My wife and I took a room in the Hoxie House, third floor corner. The room was very clean and comfortable with a working gas fireplace. The view of the Mystic River was a nice touch. The bathroom was spacious and clean. What keeps... More

I stayed here with my friends on a last minute getaway to celebrate birthdays, so glad we did! The Inn is so cozy and the staff couldn't be friendlier. The hotel restaurant Bravo Bravo must be one of the tops in the state! The location is the best in all of Mystic, steps from all the shops, the harbour, sight... More

Very clean, sweet cozy charming place to stay! Located in the heart of Mystic, I truly wouldn't stay anywhere else. This is my go to when staying in Mystic. The beds are extremely comfortable, the staff are very polite and nice and accommodating. Also the restaurant Bravo Bravo is one of the best restaurants I've eaten at and I consider... More

The Whaler's Inn is quite a place, with 5 different buildings in a small complex. Part of the inn is Victorian inn, the other part more modern hotel-like. We know this from first hand experience, as we had rooms in 3 different buildings by the time our one night was thru. Our trip to the Whaler's Inn was complicated, to... More

From start to finish, we were very pleased with our stay here. The staff was very nice, rooms were very clean and comfortable, and the restaurant was excellent! We loved everything we ordered! And our server was great too! The inn is in a convenient location. Walking distance to many great places. I will definitely be back!

Was looking for a quick get-away weekend. Whaler's Inn offered a great rate for an incredibly cozy comfortable room day. Staff was incredibly friendly from the moment we booked our room which was only the night before our arrival. Hotel is in the perfect location-shops, restaurants: everything is in walking distance which made going out at night a lot of... More

We have a girls weekend there every year and we always have a great time. We have been going back for about 8 years They take very good care of us; always have great suggestions for things to do and places to eat. Not that there is any shortage of either. The onsite restaurant "Bravo" is excellent; although always busy... More

I'm not sure how I missd reviewing this place when we were there in September. May as well tell the truth. It was probably senility. In our month of traveling the East Coast, two places stand out in my mind and I recommend them to everyone. Whaler's is one of the two. I booked the room I loved from the... More

I have to say that the attention to detail, courtesy, cleanliness, easy charm infused with old world elegance are in every room of the hotel. My experience form start to finish of this trip has been excellent. I spoke at length with a lovely lady called Franka who helped me customize my booking to make it as good an experience... More
