We loved the Inn so much that we were lucky enough to book an additional night. The rooms are lovely and spacious with period appropriate furnishings. The bathrooms are huge and seems to have recently been remodeled. Staff was extremely helpful and made us feel very welcome. Rooms had a nice sized TV, a coffeemaker and alarm clocks.

Visited here for Sunday Brunch with friends. Menu was extensive, food was very good. Setting in an lovely dining room with fresh flowers on the table. Individually served not a buffet. Inn is in a lovely setting of a colonial home and extensive grounds. A bit pricey but atmosphere calm and peaceful, unhurried, and worth it versus a food factory... More

Wonderful experience at this delightful hidden gem in Old Lyme! Food was outstanding and amenities comfortable. Plus, the staff is quite welcoming and helpful. Relaxing ambiance that feels traditional yet updated in a nice way. Submitted by two RHS Classmates

The Inn staff was very attentive but the rooms are bare essentials..no TV, clock, comfortable chair, very small bathroom, etc. It appears the Inn is suffering as the room was shabbily appointed. Too bad as the Jazz Club is outstanding and we would visit it again but not stay at this Inn. The Inn's restaurant was an even greater disappointment.... More

We escaped for a mid-week, off season getaway and were not disappointed. We were immediately upgraded upon arrival to a lovely room with a fireplace. There were very few guests at the Inn but we never felt abandoned by the staff. Cute little bar and great restaurant made for a wonderful 24-hour vacation.

Stopped unexpectedly and had a good experience. Bartender was very friendly and efficient and while we only had an app and 2 salads it was good. Fresh food, good portions and good flavor. Firepit was going out side which was a nice added bit of ambiance.

Ken and staff have created a bit of Paradise in Old Lyme. Class act all the way. And the best jazz room in New England. Food was spectacular, wine was complementary, updated antique atmosphere. Just found our new go to get away.

My husband and I enjoyed a lovely overnight at the Inn. Great local art exhibits and museum. As a bonus, we took in the jazz concert at the venue attached to the Inn which was fantastic. We also appreciated the breakfast and had a nice dinner in the restaurant.

My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful weekend at the Old Lyme Inn and its "The Side Door" jazz club. Besides the gorgeous inn and world-class LIVE music, the food and service were also extraordinary. While other inns may have a music theme, this inn has its own jazz club! It is just close enough to the New York City... More
