Loved staying here. I went alone and felt very safe staying here. Quaint place with a great location within walking distance to many shops and restaurants. Everyone was so friendly at the inn. Felt like home. Would definitely stay there again.

Steamboat Inn is a lovely place to stay. We were in the Marie Gilbert room which had 6 windows overlooking the Mystic River. The room had a wonderful fireplace and sitting area overlooking the river. Breakfast in the common room was delicious with such a variety to choose from. And at 5:00, they served cookies and sherry. The inn is... More

After researching numerous properties, we decided on the STEAMBOAT INN because if was right on the river and in the heart of Mystic. Other than Mystic Seaport and Mystic Aquarium, the restaurants and shops are within walking distance. The Inn offers generous discount tickets to those attractions. Arrival is through a gated parking lot and is easy to find if... More

We stayed in the "Summer Girl" room. Very clean with a nice view of the water. Breakfast was ok with cookies and Sherry at 5:00PM. Walking distance to restaurants and shops. We would go back again. Plus free parking with a pass to go in and out whenever we wanted.

The room was immaculate and roomy with a great view of the Mystic River. Right in the heart of downtown, there cannot be a better place to stay. The staff was great and breakfast was awesome. I highly recommend it and cannot wait to go back.

This is THE place to stay in Mystic. It is in the heart of the historic district in walking distance of shops and restaurants. The room was beautifully appointed, clean, and very comfortable with a fireplace and an amazing view of the riverfront. The free breadfast offers yogurt, fresh fruit, homemade scones and toher baked goods, and more. And the... More

Let me start with that my husband and I travel frequently. We switch between elite Marriott properties and B & B's. I was disappointed with the Steamboat Inn. Based on our experiences with many B & B's, this did not qualify as such, other than the price. It was also at the higher end of B & B pricing, so... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. I am sorry that your stay was affected by people smoking outside your room. I do wish you had let the Front Desk know, they would of been more than happy to ask the people to find somewhere else to smoke. Its unfortunate that you did not enjoy the breakfast,... More

Visited in June 2016. What a perfect location! We had stayed at this Inn 7 years ago and it was just as we had remembered. The rooms were spacious and the little touches like sherry and cookies in the afternoon were very welcoming. Only regret was that our schedule only allowed our party one night here!

My husband and I just returned from a 3 night stay in the Marie Gilbert room. You cannot ask for a nicer room or a better location!! We parked our car and never needed it again until we left to go home. The Inn itself is super quaint and super pretty. We sat outside a couple nights on the dock... More

We recently spent a weekend in Mystic and stayed at the Steamboat Inn. The location is the best in Mystic!! We were able to have the feel of the waterway right from our room. The glistening of the water was spectacular!! The size of our room was more than enough for the two of us. The daily breakfast was fresh... More
