The promise of most B&B's is quaint, unique decor and personalized service from the front desk. The drawback of B&B's is that quaint decor is often buried under a layer of old dust and musty, stale smells. At the Old Lyme Inn you gett all the promise of B&Bs and none of the drawbacks. The rooms at the inn were... More

Bette Midler performed at Mohegan which is close by. This gave us an opportunity to discover this charming inn. Staff very welcoming and helpful, amenities clean and cozy. Situated close to Mystic and other wonderful Connecticut towns.

Last Thursday night, my partner and I had a terrific dinner, went to an amazing jazz show and slept in a beautiful room with a fireplace all at the same place - Old Lyme Inn. Let me say that we are discerning travelers and expect good service, food and accommodations. We got so much more than we expected. First I... More

Superb dining, Superb overnight accomadations, and a great jazz quartet to go with a great brunch. Did I mention a New York city jazz club right on the premises, "The Side Door Jazz club" with big city musicians playing right there in Old Lyme. What a gem!

From the moment we had made the phone call to inquire about accommodations at the Inn, we were treated like family. Rooms were very clean and comfortable. Bathrooms and showers were spotless. The restaurant; from the continental breakfast, lunch to dinner, and the Sunday Brunch, all was exceptional! Would comment on specific plates but I have to get back to... More

This inn has been "restored" beyond recognition indoors. If you like new in an old skin, this place might be for you. The jazz club is terrific. But for me, I'll take an antique inn with some of the original charm left.

Thank you for expressing your preferences, and thank you for staying with us. Old Lyme Inn certainly does have a lot of history, although the building is not considered Historical by Hotels of America nor the Old Lyme Historical Society. As most guests enjoy the luxury of modern amenities, like yourself there will be some who prefer more historical and... More

We stayed at Old Lyme Inn to celebrate our 35th wedding anniversary and had a wonderful stay. From check in to check out, the staff was friendly, down to earth, and extremely helpful, it seemed like each staff member truly wanted us to feel welcome. The Inn is beautiful, well maintained and sparkling clean. The grounds are lovely, I really... More

I grew up in Old Lyme and go back regularly to see my parents there. When we have the opportunity, I'll join my sisters or friends in the bar for a drink. The inn, remodeled by the Kitchens family, is cozy, classy, and comfortably elegant. My husband and I were lucky enough to be able to spend the night recently... More

Old Lyme Inn is just a charming quaint little place. From the food to the room, everything was just great. I stayed in the Modern Wing room 8 and it was just wonderful. The décor, furniture and fireplace made my stay feel like I was right at home. After a long day on the road it was nice to kick... More

Thank you very much for such a wonderful review! Here at Old Lyme Inn we believe in comfort and the ease of having modern amenities, while in historical surroundings. There's nothing better than the conveniences at hand while staying in an older Inn. We welcome you back for another great stay anytime! More
