My wife and I recently returned from a one day trip to Mystic where we spent the evening in the Mermaid Inn. I had read over some of the amenities that were provided and combined with the good review on TripAdvisor, I figured that it would be a nice place to stay. We were not disappointed at all! When we...

My husband and I were thinking of a quick road trip up the coast. We wanted to see the folliage and stay at a B&B. It was Friday morning and we still didn't know where we would end up, when someone mentioned Mystic, CT. Then we had to find a B&B, but all of them had two night minimum stay... More

I had never stayed at a bed & breakfast before, however my husband and I wanted to give my parents (who are from California) a quaint, New England experience. After reading the positive reviews, I called the Mermaid Inn. I made the right decision! We were very pleased with our experience and enjoyed our visit. My parents stayed in the... More

I have to admit , I was disappointed by the Mermaid Inn. Everything was just enough - nothing above and beyond. The location was decent and breakfast was good. The innkeeper was nice, but not particularly helpful or friendly. In fact, she mixed up our reservation and thought we were coming the week prior. When we didn't show up, she... More

Stayed at the Mermaid Inn in August 2008 for 2 nights. We decided to stay there based on the reviews on trip advisor. First impressions were good as the property is very well located, only a few minutes walk to downtown. The property is also on a fairly quiet street and is beautiful, with a wonderful gazebo. We had the... More

Came to Mystic to join friends who came in by boat. We took over the Mermaid Inn and were made to feel very welcome. The piano player in our gang entertained us each evening at the baby grand piano in the parlor. Breakfast was bountiful and delicious and served on the gazebo with views of the Mystic River. The rooms... More

$195 per night, I just thought we would have something a lot more special? Small room with twin beds, bath out in the hall with no shower. The house is in need of paint and updating, kind of like staying with grandma. No real downstairs area to hang out other than at the small tables. Location was ok for walking... More

Good B&B with on-site parking, fantastic breakfast inside or outside (weather permitting). Nighttime complimentary snacks available, tea and coffee area also. Most rooms on first (not ground) floor. Stayed in blue room, no tub but shower and bidet, comfy bed. 5-10 mins. walk into downtown Mystic village or same distance to "Mystic museum/historic" tourist area. Josephine let us use her... More

I wanted to book a weekend getaway for my boyfriends birthday. We wanted to stay at a place where we could relax and just enjoy a peaceful weekend after both our work schedules have been extremely stressful. We got exactly what we were looking for at the Mermaid Inn. We arrived on a Friday, around 5:00. The house is absolutely... More
