This place is just wonderful-the staff is great-the room was spectacular-the breakfast(and especially the cook)is top notch. The rooms are about 5 feet from the river and about 50 feet from the main street. Very quiet and refined. Tip-try for a second floor room as the docked yachts in front block the first floor view.

Aside from its priceless location, the Steamboat Inn is rather unassuming from the outside. Don't let that fool you however, as the accomodations and staff are nothing short of first rate. (Outside of hotel makes a cameo in "Mystic Pizza")

The rooms are nicely decorated and quiet! The location is awesome. Most of all, you could not ask for a more welcoming staff. Especially Dana who serves breakfast to you in the morning with a great big smile and delicious food. We will definitely come here again.

This is our 3rd time staying at the steamboat Inn. Each time we stay we fall in love with the Inn, as well as the town of Mystic. Every time we visit we try a different room since all are set up completely different from each other. The water view is amazing from most rooms. They supply free firewood for...

I've been trying to get a room here for several years, but each time we decided to go, the rooms were booked. This time we booked 5 months in advance. The room was lovely (Summer Girl) with a beautiful view of the Mystic River. The staff were friendly and accommodating. The location was just a couple of minutes from the...

Stayed with another couple. Rooms were wonderful and staff equally terrific. Every aspect of the stay was first rate. Will return. Breakfast was on time and very, very good with something for all tastes. Greatly appreciated the refrigerator in the room.

We feel so fortunate to have the Mystic Seaport Museum 15 minutes walk from us - it truly is a local treasure. The Wooden Boat show is delightful and many of our guests enjoy the event every year. Thank you for your compliments regarding SBI - we do hope to welcome you back in the future.

We stayed at Steamboat Inn (our 3rd stay) for 2 nights earlier this month (June 2015). We have stayed here as a destination and as a 'way point' for trips to Cape Cod. As always the room was comfortable, clean and well appointed. The location is ideal - in town, right on the river and across the street from the...

We went to Mystic for two days and stayed here and we were very pleased. The rooms were clean and we had a view of the water. As promised it was within walking distance of shops and restaurants and they recommended several and we were not disappointed.

My husband and I stayed here for our 5-year anniversary last weekend. It was a pretty flawless weekend and the Steamboat Inn was a big part of that. The room was absolutely beautiful with a very comfortable bed, a cozy couch by the windows with lots of natural light, and a bathroom with a huge tub. The location is right...
