We stayed at the Whaler's Inn for a weekend in Mystic. It was in a perfect location- we could easily walk to the little downtown area and restaurants. The staff was friendly and lovely, and the Inn has a quaint New England vibe.
The room itself was really dumpy and gross. The sheets were cheap 50/50 blends. The nasty brown floral bedspread and the huge stain on the brown carpet were not nice at all. The room looked like it hadn't been updated since 1980.
All in all, I'm surprised the Whaler's Inn has such positive reviews, but then if the staff and the location had been different, I would have only given it one star.
