“Nice place to stay in Mystic”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

We stayed here for one night while in Mystic. The staff was very nice. You can tell the building is old as the floors did creak and were a little uneven, but we thought that added to its charm. Our room was big and was clean and we liked how it was decorated. They do offer a continental breakfast which was decent in size and had a nice variety to choose from. There is also a restaurant attached to the hotel. This place is within walking distance to the town and all the restaurants and shops and is right next to the harbor and bridge that raises so boats can go through, which is neat to watch if you've never seen one. Overall would stay here again if ever in the area.

The Whaler's Inn is perfectly situated at the bridge in Mystic. We stayed in a luxury room which had a lovely jacuzzi bath and fireplace. Our view was of the Mystic river and the drawbridge, but it really was a quiet room and I didn't hear any street noise. My only complaint is that the wifi signal does not really reach our room, but other than that it was absolutely lovely. The complimentary continental breakfast goes down well and the breakfast room was packed with people each morning. Mystic is such an interesting town to explore, and the Whaler's Inn has real history as well. Round off your trip with dinner at Bravo Bravo. It is superb.

Room Tip: Choose a room with a view of the river and bridge - in October a fireplace is an absolute must!

The Whaler's Inn is a charming wonderfully maintained hotel in downtown Mystic. Everything about the Inn is top notch; the thing which takes it to the top of the charts is the efficiency and friendliness of the staff.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Mystic, and the Whaler's Inn is right in the middle of the town and convenient to everything! Because of the coming storm we had to check out a day or two early, and the hosts were very helpful and considerate about that. The staff here is lovely and helpful. Our rooom was small but clean and charming. The bathrooms are great. Breakfast was more than adequate. If you do want to stayin the heart of Mystic, DO choose this Inn! We will happily revisit the Whaler's Inn on our next rip.

Very large room with noisy air con unit. However for a one night stay it was OK. Free wifi in room was a plus and an in room coffee maker[which I adapted to take tea bags!]. Continental breakfast included and a bistro on the premises if you arrive late and can't be bothered to go out.

We just stayed there 10/13 and 10/14. The room was stunning and spotlessly clean with all amenities you can imagine! We had a Jacuzzi suite and it was well worth the added cost. The room had a warm fireplace and beautiful linens with bathrobes and thick white towels. The room was completely modern with a perfect view of the draw bridge. The breakfast was more than we expected and the staff was very gracious. We will definitely recommend this Inn. Connecticut is beautiful as are all the New England States, I am impressed with the attention to recycling and the condition of the infrastructure! Your tax dollars are working for you Connecticut!

Room Tip: Request the jacuzzi tub

Situated in the heart of Mystic Town and away from the tourist attraction of Mystic Village and shops, we were pleased to find a midweek special rate on the Internet. Our room 31 in the main building was large with a Queen bed and a flat TV, a large bathroom with a massage shower. The inn has attached to it a very cozy restaurant bravo bravo managed by a 3 rd party. We stuck to a series of appetisers and the Shiitake and Button Mushroom Bruschetta was out of this world. We also had burratta and tomatoes in a garlic balsamic dressing. The bartender is skilled and he came out to meet us at the table and even concocted a French Kiss martini in a tall glass. The place is very lively and probably has the best cocktails in Mystic- I would recommend this place as a great value for money.
