Me and my husband regularly travel to Mystic and stay at different properties but The Whaler's Inn is by far my favorite! It is conveniently located to downtown Mystic shops and restaurants. The rooms are spacious, clean and the staff is super friendly. I will definitely book another room at The Whaler's Inn for my next trip to Mystic!

The Whaler's Inn is a very nice hotel in a great location. We stayed in the Stonington House building, and found the room to be very comfortable. We loved the coffee and cookies in the lobby, and enjoyed the breakfast selection.

Our room lacked a refrigerator, but the beds were wonderfully comfortable, the bathroom nicely appointed with a large walk-in shower, and an HD TV with Xfinity. The lobby provided coffee and cookies and the continental breakfast provided was good. There are many restaurants and shops within easy walking distance, less than a block from the Mystic drawbridge and just three...

Spent a delightful combined holiday stay here - Birthday, Wedding Anniversary & Mother's Day. Walking distance to most attractions, and with a view of the river! Very comfortable relaxing room in Hoxie House. The friendly front office answered all our questions. Breakfast was perfect - Quiche, yogurt and croissants.

The Inn is quite old and nostalgic which gets lost on a business traveler; however I would definitely stay here for R&R. I really liked the fact is was so close to everything in town. The...
