We stayed for two nights in Mystic at The Whaler's Inn and had a fabulous, relaxing and enjoyable visit. The staff was warm and welcoming and could not have done more to accommodate us. We were also upgraded to a king bed, which we appreciated. Our room (51) was spotless and comfortable with a great view over Main Street. Everything was in working order, we had a strong WiFi signal and a double sheeted bed, which we loved. Were it not for the amorous adventures of our next door neighbor at night, we would not have heard a peep from anyone. This property has a terrific staff, from housekeepers to front desk, all going out of their way to accommodate every request. We are not breakfast eaters, but did get coffee in the morning and, from the contented guests eating breakfast, it appeared that morning offerings were ample.
The property is located perfectly for forays to Main Street, Mystic, a quaint and enjoyable place to browse, shop and take in the vibe, which is authentic New England. It is also in close proximity to the area attractions.
I cannot imagine what more the staff could have done to make us feel more comfortable and I enjoyed meeting the lovely Nicole who was so very friendly and attentive. I've read many of the reviews here and most guests enjoyed the hotel as much as we did. From what I experienced I cannot imagine how anyone could be unhappy with anything here except that one cannot always please everyone.
Our bathroom shower was a wee bit tight, but this is a historic property and, having traveled a fair amount, we expect some compromise in order to maintain the authenticity of the building. If you could not get around in the shower, I suggest you go on a diet! I am not a small man but found it the perfect size and I did drop the soap a few times and retrieved it without any trouble at all.
I would heartily recommend Whaler's Inn to visitors to greater Mystic. It is a terrific place to stay, comfortable and well priced with a really dedicated staff of friendly people who obviously enjoy working there!
