“Great Vacation”
Reviewed July 19, 2012

We took an unexpected vacation and looked for a place to stay in the Mystic area. The previous reviews lived up to their comments. We made reservations on sat @ 1 and arrived at 7 that night. We were welcomed to a great desk staff member who not only checked us in but provided information of the Mystic area and what places to go and see. The recommendations of this person were right on. My whole family had a great time. The rooms themselves were clean and had enough pillows, towels on hand and also the room was comfortable in temperature especially with the heat wave we were experiencing. Definitely would come again.

My family and I had a great time staying at the Howard Johnson in CT. The rooms were clean the staff was very friendly and accommodating. The kids had a great time in the in-door pool. Very convenient from 95, Mystic Aquarium, and Mystic Seaport.

We reserved this hotel through the Howard Johnson website and received a confirmation for a non-smoking room. When we arrived we were put in a smoking room. The clerk claimed that the online reservation system does not include information about non-smoking. The hotel was sold out so they were unable to give us another room. The room obviously smelled strongly of smoke and all of our clothes smelled of smoke when we returned home. The general manager was unwilling to offer any compensation or reduction for not honoring the confirmed reservation.

We stayed at this Ho Jos during the time period of 6/24/2012 - 6/28/2012. Very nice size room. Extremely clean. Staff very helpful & friendly. My only complaint is the 1 cup coffee maker in the room....seriously? Mystic itself was great, we plan to go back and will definitely stay here again.

The pros: friendly staff, clean rooms, family friendly - ie: great pool for kids, I had adjoining rooms with my parents and it worked out great (my kids and I were in one room and my parents in the other), location is perfect - close to aquarium, Seaport, Rhode Island beaches and restaurants, fridge in room meant we could stay in for breakfast (cereal and milk) and go to the grocery store to buy and keep picnic lunch food - a huge money saver!
The cons: the pillows were horrible - bring your own! Late arrivals park right in front of rooms and some are louder than they should be... Not horrible, just a family arriving at 10:30pm being loud - the noise lasted for all of five minutes, and the photo on the website of the pool is totally misleading. In the photo it looks enormous, but in reality it is medium size. No lap swimming, but great for kids to splash around in - goes to 9' deep.
All in all I was very happy with my stay. If you are a family on a budget, I highly recommend it and wil be sure to return.

Based on the inexpensive rate for a hotel that is very conveniently located in Mystic, I was concerned the hotel wasn't going to be nice. I was pleasantly surprised. The front lobby made a very nice first impression and the front desk staff were very friendly and professional. The rooms are decent, and there is a great indoor pool open all day until 11PM I believe. The staff are helpful recommending places in the area, and there are even bikes (and bike helmets)available to use for free through a local bike share! Additionally, there is a great diner called Equinox virtually attached to the hotel. It's very convenient and very good. I would definitely stay here again.
