My husband and I stayed at the Steamboat Inn for a weekend getaway and had a great experience. The inn is lovely -- it sits right on the dock very close to the Mystic Bridge. You can park your car and forget about it til you leave. You can easily walk to the Seaport, shops and restaurants. We stayed in Kathleen - it was beautiful and spacious with a whirlpool, kitchenette and luxurious bed. The breakfast was very nice with many selections to choose from. The common room is a great extra, with complimentary bottled water, sodas, coffee, and cookies in the evening.
We were extremely lucky that the barge mentioned by other reviewers departed just before we arrived ahead of Hurricane Sandy, so we did not have obstructed views or noise during our stay. The staff and management had called us about a month prior to our arrival date to let us know about the barge and discuss alternate arrangements. My impression is that they are doing the best they can with a difficult situation that they have no control over.
I will definitely stay at the Steamboat Inn again in the future. It's a gem.
