My wife and I decided to go on a "random walk" to some bed and breakfast near us for our 11th anniversary. We ended up with the "All That Jazz" package at the Old Lyme Inn and were quite pleased. A nice place for a little get-away. The town of Old Lyme is nice and nearby beaches, Old Saybrook and... More

We had a great time and lovely stay at the inn. We signed up for the jazz package which included the room, a three course dinner of your choosing, plus house wine and an evening at the side door jazz club on the premises. We were so surprised at the level of musicianship! Fabulous! It was a terrific night spent... More

We stopped by the Old Lyme Inn on a snowy Saturday after having visited the Florence Griswold Museum. The area is so beautiful and peaceful. We had lunch in their smaller bar area dining room. The fireplace was lit and the feel was so cozy and inviting. The lunch menu is not large, but there was a little something for... More

We arrived in a blizzard, were welcomed, had a great dinner with wine and great room. Very relaxed atmosphere. There was a jazz event in the bar but we retired early. The room was upgraded with very nice amenities.

The food is imaginative and well presented. The waitstaff is attentive and hip. We've eaten in the bar and the small dining room usually spur of the moment and have never been disappointed. The new outdoor fireplace and drinks area in front of the Inn adds so much to the atmosphere, especially at night. Very gracious and charming but not... More

We have been having family reunions in Old Lyme for years, mostly based at the Old Lyme Inn. 2013 was a great surprise. The inn, while maintaining its traditional charm, has been completely and tastefully redone. Bedrooms, public rooms, restaurant and the new jazz club are excellent. The only downside is lack of breakfast but there is a good cafe... More

This is our second time staying at the Old Lyme Inn. It has been restored beautifully. Rooms are spacious and beautifully appointed with fireplaces, large bathrooms and comfy beds. The staff is very accommodating. The Side Door, a jazz venue, is very cool. Wonderful music with a New York style club feel. Dinner though is just adequate. Although not very... More

Having booked all our accommodation back in February for our New England tour I was not very happy with my first choice and so cancelled that booking with 48 hours to go and rebooked into the Old Lyme inn having got a real bargain price. And boy, am I glad I did! What a find. On arrival, we were greeted... More

The Old Lyme Inn is a small 16 room inn. The rooms are quite charming and well appointed and include fine toiletries and organic bedding. The king sized bed was fabulous. Very cozy and comfortable. The ventilation system, once we learned to control it kept the room at a perfect temperature. The only minuses were the lack of a table... More
