My wife and I stayed at the Mermaid Inn October 7th & 8th, 2006. We booked our room over the telephone. We reserved the room by sending the owner, Josephine, a deposit of $100.00. The Mermaid Inn is not capable of accepting credit cards so you can pay with a check or cash. Josephine took our check with no problem. Our stay at the inn was wonderful!! Josephine was the most accommodating innkeeper we ever met. The room was very nice. There are four rooms at the Mermaid Inn and we never heard anyone else during our stay. Josephine provided chocolates, cognac, soft drinks and botled water in our room-all complimentary. She restocked our room each morning. The bed was very comfortable. Upon our arrival, Josephine posted the menu for the next day's 3 course breakfast. She asked when we wanted to eat breakfast and wanted to know if we had any problems with any of the items listed on the menu. Both of the breakfasts we had were delicious. Josephine also had delicious homemade cookies available around the clock. She made popcorn each night to take back to our room.
The Mermaid Inn is a wonderful place to stay. You can walk to restaurants, downtown Mystic, and Mystic Seaport. Josephine stated that she does not spend a lot of money on advertising-she puts her money toward the comfort and extras for her guests. Her money is well spent. I highly reccommend the Mermaid Inn.
