This was our first at this Inn. Not dissapointed, nice rooms, very clean, good for multiple nights, great location, downtown Mystic, price was very reasonable, 2 night minimum, has it own restaurant which we do not use, continental breakfast included with cost of room. The only con was the queen size bed was too soft. Would highly recomment to friends... More

As others have said, the Inn is in the perfect location. The only other place that seems ideal is Steamboat Inn. The Inn itself is quaint and older, but they have updated most of the important things: new, stylish bed sheets, flat screen Tv, updated picture... The only thing that really needs to be updated is the actual key entry,... More

We have stayed in Mystic before so this was just a transit stop between JFK and Martha's Vineyard. It worked very well. We picked it due to proximity to S&P Oysters which is a brilliant venue for a dinner - particularly when the sun shines as it did for us. The hotel is slightly tired. The room is furnished traditionally... More

First of all, the location is ideal. Right at the heart of the downtown village, near the best restaurants and easy walking distance to the Seaport. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms clean and comfortable. Who could ask for more?

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

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!
