“Pros and Cons”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

Our family of 4 stayed here for three nights as a long weekend. We stayed in the Carriage House, which has 2 BR and was very comfortable. We try to stay at smaller places like the Taber Inne (as opposed to the Hyatts of the world), but we did have one negative experience. There was a jacuzzi tub in our room, but the water went ice cold after letting the water run for about 5 minutes. We were looking forward to using this small luxury that we don't have at home, and were disappointed. We notified the owner, who blamed the issue on a hurricane from 6 months ago, which confused me. Like most smaller properties, issues like this require an external plumber, so the problem wasn't fixed during the 3 days we were there. Not the end of the world, but a disappointment....

We went to the Aquarium (10 minute drive) and the Seaport (20 minute walk). Here are a few pros and cons:

Pros:
1. Friendly family atmosphere
2. Nice pool
3. Nice Breakfast selection, although everything is disposable and it's a huge amount of trash.
4. Several rooms sizes to choose from, including suites that work well for families.
5. Affordable rates by Mystic standards
6. A few restaurants within 5 minute walk

Cons:
1. Horrible fitness center
2. It's about a 15 minute walk to downtown Mystic along busy Rte 1.
3. Some of the rooms face Rte 1, which is a very busy road.

If we return to Mystic as a family, we would return to the Taber Inne.

The Taber Inne was a good place for us to stay in Mystic. It's certainly not a fancy place but we liked the atmosphere (family-run, old-fashioned, a compound of buildings and add-ons accreted over time). We would certainly stay there again, not only for those reasons but also because of the restaurant across the street, the Mystic Market, where we ate 3 meals a day -- it's an upscale bakery/deli/sandwich/soup/coffee/gelato paradise.

Our first time here and will go back. Very friendly staff, especially the manager Matt. He could not do enough to inform us of the facility and surroundings. In fact when I had a problem with tailgate on my truck he was there in a flash to help. He is a great asset to this place. Great, quiet location with a number of buildings in a picturesque setting. Location is close to area attractions and the ocean. Room was clean, well decorated with great WiFi. Continental breakfast is available. Relaxing atmosphere.

My teenage daughter and I stayed at the Taber Inne this past weekend, and it was absolutely adorable. Our room was immaculate - it even smelled of bleach. The owners were charming, the continental breakfast was a bonus, and the location was ideal—just a mile from the heart of mystic but definitely not in a touristy area. Much, much better than any chain! Would highly recommend!

Recently returned from my 4th trip to the Taber Inn. Maggie is simply delightful and the staff are wonderful. The Inn is always great....relaxing and comfortable. Always feel at home there. Highly recommended!!

We needed somewhere to stay when we had to move out of our rented accommodation before returning to the UK. I am glad we chose The Taber Inne. It is in a great location, we stayed in room 15 which was spotless. Breakfast is included in the room rate and there is also an indoor swimming pool which sadly we did not have the time to use. The Inne is family run which makes for a very friendly welcoming atmosphere.

We stayed at Taber Inn during peak season. The price was reasonable. The Inn was very clean and quaint. The location was perfect for us! The staff was accommodating to us as we'll! We would certainly go back!
