Stayed a weekend at the Steamboat Inn to celebrate our wedding anniversary. From the first phone call to our departure, we couldn't have been more pleased. The GPS directions from the web site led us right to the somewhat hidden driveway. We were warmly greeted and shown the inn. Our room was ready and waiting. (room #2). There was a bit of a smokey odor when we first entered but come on, there is a working fireplace in the room.
As for the fireplace, it was a very nice touch to have the logs pre-set for us. A strike of the match and we had a fire. This was done both nights of our stay. The bedding was comfortable and the room was clean. Good shower!
The breakfast was continental and adaquate. The inn staff was present to warm a muffin or refill a coffee pot. There was a stack of local papers to view in the breakfast room.
The location was great. Walking distance to historic Mystic and you're right in the downtown area. We were there on the eve of the local St. Patrick's parade so the town was dressed for the occasion. The local shop owners were very friendly and we did buy. We had dinner at the Packer Inn, which is walking distance from the Steamboat, and thoroughly enjoyed our meal.
In the end, we really enjoyed our stay and will look to return. We took brochures for family members so you can safely assume we recomend the Inn.
