4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed here for one night, arriving late afternoon with only the junior suite available. It was spatious and looked/smelled like it had only just been redecorated. Comfortable bed, nice bathroom and well insulated. The location is very central and there are lots of interesting places in walking distance. The only disappointing thing was the breakfast (inclusive), which was very... More

This place was one of the cheaper options in town and the food was very good for the price. You will wait for the servers as they seem a bit thin at that position but ours was friendly and very nice. When you are looking for a good place at a right place this place is for you.

My Midwestern husband had never been to Mystic and I had not visited since about 1956. We needed a nice place to stay where we could see everything on foot - including the Seaport Museum. This is the place!!!! Although the Tripadvisor reviews were good I was envisioning tiny rooms in an old building with creaky floors, de minimus parking,... More

We spent one night here, but wish it could've been more! Absolutely perfect location in the center of Mystic, all restaurants and shops in walking distance! The staff was friendly, rooms were clean and comfortable, and rates were very reasonable. Added bonus: the hotel is a quick drive from the beautiful beaches of Rhode Island.

Centrally located, we walked to the shops and Mystic Seaport. Great restaurants nearby and within the Inn itself. Our room was lovely, and was obviously recently renovated and looked sparkling clean with a pleasing nautical blue and white theme. The bed was very comfortable. Staff was always welcoming and helpful. And discount tickets could be bought at the Inn's desk... More
