I was expecting an old smelly hotel. You know the type. I was pleasantly surprised! We had a recently renovated room and it was fantastic! I loved the fireplace in the room. I highly recommend that the hotel take new brightly lit photos of the rooms so that customers can see how nice the rooms are.

I arrived at the hotel a little after 6:30 p.m. and everything was dark and locked. I went to the main entrance and the sign said that they were closed but listed a number to call. When I called the number, a woman answered a little irritated blaming me for being late and that she would get there in 25...

Staff was very friendly. The room was pleasant and spacious. The location was convenient for walking. Food was very good. We visited the Florence museum across the street, the Jazz event and did a walking tour. All were very worthwhile.

Decided to go to the jazz show at The Side Door about 2h before the show. Outstanding hospitality--a quick check into the room and then indoor walk to the show. Great venue for a show--intimate with great acoustics. Then another short indoor walk to a great night sleep in a spacious room with a fireplace. Delicious brunch the next day....

We stayed for a weekend and had a very charming room. The room was large and the and very nicely furnished. Continental breakfast was very excellent and a very nice sitting room. Would definitely stay at this inn again.

Our daughter was married at the Old Lyme in recently. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this inn and their owners and staff. The event coordinator there, Julie, made our daughter and son-in-laws dreams for a small and intimate wedding a reality. She attended to every detail and went above and beyond to make the day a most special...

We were here for a wedding for a Friday and sat night stay. Our shower was completely broken, would only give out scalding hot water or ice cold and the tub wouldn't drain. No toiletries in the room. No tv or clock in the room. The Wi-Fi is shotty. No hangers in the closet and The robes physically look disgusting....

Dear Natasha, In response to your review I feel compelled to offer our side. When you reported your shower not functioning correctly we notified our maintenance person who acquired the correct part and had it repaired in under an hour maybe even closer to 1/2 an hour. I'd say that is not bad given it was a Saturday morning. Any...

Stayed here for one night with my mum on our New England trip. Room very clean, spacious and really comfy bed and lovely bathroom. However, what was somewhat lacking was the hospitality normally offered at other inns we have stayed at. It was unfortunate that they are having some kitchen staff issues and therefore the restaurant was closed. However, although...

Thank you, Shell for your honest review. We are very sorry that you experienced the Old Lyme Inn during what has been a very challenging time. We are trying to honor our room reservations as well as our booked events but it is difficult to completely staff given the lack of a restaurant. We do not want to settle and...

Really bad experience all around. Might have the worst bed I've ever slept in and we are not casual travelers. Stuffy staff and stuffy rooms. Cleaning lady is downright mean and I'm pretty sure doesn't do a good job when you don't tip her to spite you for not tipping her. Didn't tip her because I had to kill 2...
