If you are traveling with kid(s), like we do, the choices of places of stay are somewhat limited, as I found out trying to book at local B&Bs; most of them seem to cater to couples on "romantic getaways" and will not take kids. On our quick vacation we wanted to stay at a place that had more character than... More

Nice accommodation, pleasant and friendly staff, accom more 3 star but very comfortable. Breakfast included but would be enhanced by having real cutlery rather than paper plates and disposable cutlery. The restaurant attached is outstanding and a real highlight of our trip. Worth booking in advance.

My boyfriend and I stayed at The Whaler's Inn for one night as we headed towards home from Maine. It was a beautiful historic hotel within walking distance to all of the local shops and restaurants. Our room was neat and clean, with a comfortable bed. We went to an Irish pub to celebrate St. Patrick's Day with a few... More

My husband and I spent 2 nights at the Whaler's Inn. We had booked the Cozy Queen room in the Main Building which was lovely decorated and spacious. Unfortunately we had a terrible night of sleep as the old heating system made a lot of noise during the night. Additionally, we woke up to a very disturbing smell in the... More

This is a great Inn! Very clean, updated, nice staff! Great continental breakfast, super location, right downtown. Plenty of parking. The bed was a bit uncomfortable…a little too firm and the bed frame squeaked every time you turned over. The linens were very nice but were washed in a strong-scented laundry detergent. (We're allergic to artificial scents.) The jacuzzi tub... More

My husband & I decided last minute to spend an over night in Mystic on our way to Maine. I did minimal research online to find a place to stay.

The Whaler's Inn is centrally located on Main Street in the historic part of Mystic, CT. The rooms are very nice, however, there is no elevator, so if you can't climbs stairs, request a room on the first floor. We had a room on the third floor, as we had requested. It was clean and a nice size.

We enjoyed the location and small inn feel of The Whaler's Inn. While it was a short visit, it was a great location right in Mystic, even in the cold of winter. The rooms were pretty standard, but fine.
