Inn at Stonington
Ranked #1 of 3 Stonington B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 25, 2012

There is just nothing not to love about the Inn at Stonington. The room we had, Number 5, Seaside view, second floor -- is highly recommended -- ideal view of the harbor; quiet at night; so well appointed that we were taking pictures of it before we left! Staff did everything they could to insure our visit would be pleasant. Breakfast was great (make sure you try the carrot bread). Wine and cheese at 6 p.m. was a lovely end of day event. This is a memorably pleasant, near-perfect getaway.

Room Tip: Room 5, again, is an ideal choice.

Just had a terrific stay at the inn - beautiful water views right in the heart of the boro close to shops, restaurants, boat/kayak rentals, and historic buildings. Highlights included the friendly staff, comfortable four-post bed, free high-speed internet suitable for streaming video, great wine and cheese hour in the afternoons, fresh-baked breakfast treats, and a spacious room. My only (minor) critiques were the loud outdoor fan that cut into the back-porch tranquility, and NYC room prices. I will certainly be returning to the Inn for my next Stonington trip

Room Tip: Room 19 has a great view, and a ton of room, but is on the ground floor by the parking lot.

My two adult sisters and I spent a magical two nights at this wonderful hotel. The location was superb - nestled in the heart of this lovely little New England village. We kayaked on the Long Island sound, shopped at an amazing discount clothing store, ate at a first rate seafood restaurant and biked to a magnificent small vineyard where we enjoyed live music and an amazing wine tasting - all within a 1-mile radius of this terrific Inn.

Breakfasts were delicious and plentiful, afternoon wine and cheese on the back deck looking out towards the water was relaxing. The staff could not have been more pleasant and helpful.

I highly recommend this property for any kind of relaxing get-away! Enjoy!

We spent 2 nights at the Inn and thoroughly enjoyed it. We had a waterview room on the second floor which was spotless, charmingly decorated, and very comfortable. There was a gas fireplace and small balcony with a view to the bay. As some reviewers have mentioned, there is a parking lot between the inn and the bay, but you can avoid seeing it if you are in a second floor water view room. The staff was very pleasant and we appreciated being brought complimentary glasses of wine when we checked in even though it was not yet time for the wine and cheese hour. Stonington itself is very charming and historic. It is very small, but great for wandering around to look at the old homes and views of the water. It is also quite close to Mystic and easy to do a day at a nice ocean beach in Watch Hilll, RI, about 20 minutes away. This is a great place for a weekend away from NYC.

Room Tip: Ask a water view room on the second floor.

The desk attendant, Dorrie, was absolutely charming and hospitable. The room was well appointed and the bathroom was clean and roomy.
The inn is at a great location - the southern end of the business strip and close to the point - but the rear was above the parking lot. Still, there was no noise and the sound offers a beautiful view out the window. The town is wonderful - the row after row of old houses will fascinate you.

I agree with a previous reviewer: the breakfast was ordinary. But the guest room, the public rooms and the location made this a wonderful weekend.
We also recommend the town's restaurants - informal and good food both nights.

The Inn seems newly built (probably it is) and the rooms are very tastefully appointed with lovely furniture and a large bathroom with jacuzzi and shower. The view of the harbor from the breakfast room and third floor common rooms was lovely. I thought that the breakfast was plentiful with quality pastries, breads and fruits. The staff was also very helpful - all in all flawless service and a restful and very pleasant week-end.

My husband and I were in need of a 24-hour escape from daily life. We chose Stonington for its location and sea-side atmosphere. The Inn was offering a special mid-week special when we went that included a generous voucher to the Water Street Cafe down the street. In all, it was a very reasonably-priced stay, which no doubt contributed to our positive feelings about the Inn!
The staff were extremely friendly and elegant. The building itself was beautiful; original art on the walls, comfortable common room seating, nice, simple breakfast and a complimentary wine and cheese in the evening. Our room (#11) was great; working gas fireplace, oversized tub, balcony and nice decor. My only gripe (and thus my rating of 4 stars) was that the bed was tiny and uncomfortable! The bed was definitely smaller than a queen and the mattress was old and springy. I slept terribly, which was a major disappointment given that we didn't have to wake up at the first sound of our eager, early-rising kiddos! This said, the friendliness, location and added amenities made our 24 hour escape well worth it. I would happily recommend the Inn to anyone--just be sure to get a room with a decent sized bed!
