We have been staying here about once a year for 17 years. Stay in the Hoxie House, it's the nicest building there. Beautiful king or queen size beds, gas fireplaces, lovely furnishings, luxury linens and views of the draw bridge and the river. Huge jacuzzi tubs for two. Very clean place and lovely staff. Nice light breakfast in the mornings.... More

My husband and I stayed here on Sept03, 2014. The room was older, but had charm and was very clean. The hotel is in the heart of downtown and we could walk to everything. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a clean, inexpensive hotel.

We just stayed here 2 nights and it was great. If you like Mystic this is the perfect location. We had a room in the ‘Hoxie House’ on the 2nd floor with a window looking towards the drawbridge so you could watch it go up and down. Our room had a big comfortable king size bed and a big bathroom... More

My family and I stayed one night here on the way from Cape Cod to New York and we were very glad we did. The staff were very welcoming and... More

The location is perfect, walking distance from good restaurants and shopping, and a short drive from the historical seaport. The service was excellent. The staff accommodated my family from a step stool to help my mom up on the tall beds to calling the laundry when we thought my daughter's bear was lost in the sheets. There were bicycles to... More

We wanted to be able to park our car, see the local shops and attractions that are located in Mystic, and enjoy the local restaurants.The Whalers Inn met all these requirements. The cost was more than the local motels but the convenience was worth the extra... More

My husband and I stayed here the night of our wedding and the following evening as well. The staff was very nice and helped us get tickets to go to the Seaport on Monday. Our room was clean and we had an amazing view of downtown and the water from our room. We enjoyed being able to talk a walk... More

I couldn't imagine a better location in Mystic to stay. Literally on Main Street, just steps from the water, shops, restaurants (including Mystic Pizza) and the Seaport Museum. The Aquarium and shops at Olde Mystic are an easy 5 minute drive away. The staff was friendly and helpful, The buffet continental breakfast was quite generous. There is ample parking on... More

Last minute we decided to spend a night in Mystic on our way to party in CT on Saturday. We got a room at the The Whalers Inn and were in love. Great spot in town, walk to all. They even sell Alex & Ani's in the same building. Our room was huge and very comfortable. Staff was friendly and... More
