We reserved two king rooms about 2 months prior to our 08/04/12 to 08/10/12 trip.
a) Whaler’s Inn consists of four or five buildings around a central parking lot. The location is excellent, within walking distance of pretty much everything (see photos).
b) Breakfast is decent, consisting of fruit, muffins/pastry, bread items, cereal, etc. (see photos).
c) Usually in the evening, cookies are put out for the guest.
No complaints, very friendly attentive employees. Although the manager/owner had to tell the check-out clerk they accepted AARP discount for my parent’s room.
Comfortable, more than adequate. Beware – there isn’t a mini refrigerator nor a microwave in the rooms at the Noank House; but we really didn’t miss not having these. Also, the bathroom (shower only) exhaust fan is pretty loud when the bathroom light is on (see photos).
