Nice clean room that was recently renovated. Great location close to restaurants and shops. Nice comfortable beds and newer bathrooms. Very nice service at check in and check out as well as the attendant working the morning breakfast. Will stay here again.

I'm the type of person who reads reviews, but rarely gives them. I had to leave a glowing review for the Whaler's Inn in Mystic because it was just what we needed! We were celebrating our anniversary and wanted a special getaway. The inn is beautiful and tastefully decorated with a nautical theme. Located steps away from the Mystic river,... More

The Whaler's Inn is right in the heart of Mystic, CT within walking distance to the seaport and the town. Our room was in the 1856 House and it was beautifully decorated with plenty of space for 2. We ate at Bravo Bravo, the restaurant on the premises, and had a delicious dinner with terrific service. I would absolutely go... More

Spur of the moment trip brought us to Mystic. Kept fingers crossed that we could find somewhere to stay, and The Whaler's Inn had one room left! Lucky me! It was a beautiful room for the three of us.

My husband and I stayed here on a recent trip and found the room both beautiful and comfortable. The inn is in the heart of Mystic and right on the water....convenient to everything from restaurants to shopping to attractions. Staff was very friendly and breakfast was delicious. Highly recommend.

A very comfortable stay, after we'd carried the bags up to the 3rd floor. No lift. Good excercise. A short discussion about our room. We'd booked for 3 people: 2 + teen. First room offered had one double bed, but reservation had been accepted for 3. So be a bit careful. They sorted it. Lots of places to eat in... More

From the outside, this property is not particularly impressive, but the rooms we had were absolutely beautiful. The staff was very helpful and friendly and the location of the inn cannot be beat! I was sorry we could only stay one night. We will definitely stay here again if we are in the area!

I only have great things to say about our stay at The Whaler’s Inn this week. We embarked on a 3-night, 3 generation getaway with limited time and chose Mystic, downstate from home.

The Whaler's Inn has a number of buildings with rooms and suites. We were only in one and our room was satisfactory although far from luxurious or modern. The bathroom and bedroom were rather small as if we were in New York City rather than Mystic. However, there was a huge walk-in closet! The location can't be beat - right... More
