      Historical Traveler Reviews Steamboat Inn Mystic

      Stay here when in Mystic

      from

      Lovely room (called "Annie Wilcox"). Comfortable beds and cosy atmosphere. Highly recommended for couples seking a romantic hideaway in the otherwise disappointing Mystic. Refreshingly different from the one-size-fits-all chain hotels which are endemic in the US. Breakfast was basic but good. Staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The drawbridge hooter acts as an excellent alarm call!

      Beautiful river views

      from

      We just spent a weekend at the Steamboat Inn and really enjoyed it.The views of the river are fantastic and the Inn is in a great location right in the middle of all attractions.The only draw back was we did not get much sleep

      between the draw bridge going up and down and the boats docking in and out.But overall beautiful place to stay.

      Charming, but could be better.

      from

      Nice place, great location, but when I stayed there recently,

      not much help seemed to be around, girl at desk very hassled taking phone

      reservations...and water did not seem to get too hot from the tap, even after running it for some time.

      Breakfast could be better. Had trouble finding parking place in adjacent lot.

      It filled up fast, especially in evenings. Mattress was also too hard!

      A Great Place to Stay

      from

      Just got back from a jaunt through New England. We happened upon Mystic and decided to stay in town. After visiting a couple of other places, we settled on the Steamboat. What an great place. This Inn is one of our new favorite places. The rooms are excellent, though our DVD player didn't work. We weren't there to watch TV though, so it didn't matter too much. If you're traveling in CT or MA, this is a great place to stay. NYC is 2 hours away, Boston about the same. Highly recommended.

      Superb stay

      from

      I took my boyfriend here as a surprise for his birthday...we arrived just ahead of the Noreaster on 1/28 and stayed thru Thursday... stayed in room #8 Kathleen....absolute heaven! HUGE bathroom with beautiful whirlpool for two...separate shower....king size bed...plenty of pillows...mattress a little too firm for our liking but that is the only complaint!!

      Kate at the front desk was an absolute fantastic help....a coffeemaker for the room, fresh towels whenver needed....made our reservations at Bravo Bravo (decent) .... the room was spotless, the service excellent...the view beautiful.

      I highly recommend the Steamboat for those who want a memorable stay in Mystic....

      Good overall, but BEWARE...

      from

      The Steamboat Inn clearly has the monopoly for "centrally located- on the water" appeal in all of Eastern Connecticut/Mystic. Once you arrive you can quickly take notice that primary attention will be shown to the older 35+, demanding, more well-to-do guests (we are proud to be none of those). My fiance and I stayed here for our five year dating anniversary. We stayed in the large and lived in Carolyn room which has a jaw-dropping 2 person whirlpool with magical views of the Harbor. Disappointment set in on our first night, when our Queen size bed collapsed after merely sitting on it (wood splinters at our feet) . It was nearly midnight and the Innkeeper and all were at home asleep, nowhere near the hotel to help this situation. We called the listed emergency number and we were told that nothing could be done for us and that we'd have to "make it work until morning." We were NOT happy about this lack of ability to accommodate us and we didn't sleep well ON THE FLOOR! Multiple people told us multiple things, such as, "we would be credited for our trouble" (never happened). "We could be put up in the Boat at the dock" (nope, never happened). "All rooms are booked, so you'll have to wait for our repairman." We were told that "this happened in the past to the same bed." OK, this is a financially prosperous INN so why not get a NEW BED FRAME- if that's the case? All bickering aside,Diane the Inn Keeper was a nice old British lady who was most helpful at food/refreshment service. In the end we fell victim to her old age and British charm and thanked her. We weren't stern or demanding after our night on the floor and the second night was perfect. Lesson learned: ask about the bed, or any known furniture problems Trip result: HALF BAD/HALF PERFECT

      Great place to stay

      from

      My husband and I just returned from a weekend getaway to Mystic. We stayed at the Steamboat Inn and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Though our room was small (Marie Gilbert), it had a wood burning fireplace that we used multiple times, a jacuzzi tub, a very comfortable canopy bed, and a lovely view of the river. A perk of staying at this inn is that you get free parking in downtown Mystic. The innkeeper was extremely friendly and helpful. Only improvement would be the offereing of a full breakfast rather than just a continental.

      Overall, a WONDERFUL place to stay that we will surely return to.

      The Best Location in Mystic

      from

      My husband and I loved the Steamboat. The staff is very friendly and helpful. It is right on the water and around the corner from lots of cute little stores and yummy homemade ice cream shops. It is within easy walking distance of the Mystic Seaport.

      There was a concert in the park across the river on the evening we stayed, so we opened our windows and enjoyed the music. A very nice way to relax after a busy day of sightseeing.

      We only stayed one evening here. Definitely wish we would have stayed longer!

      Great Weekend Getaway !

      from

      My wife and I decided to take a weekend away after a busy holiday season. We spent 3 lovely nights at the Steamboat and were treated like royalty. Great service and even sherry in the evening. Would recommend to anyone interested in a great place on the water in southeastern Connecticut!

      Romantic and Cozy

      from

      This is a great B&B. Could not ask for a better location right on the water and right in down town. Not to mention 2 blocks from Mystic Pizza! Very Cozy, very clean, great service. We are looking to go back soon.

      ... couple of road signs that said 'Thickly Settled', which I was mystified by (are they talking about my waistline?) It turns out that it means densely populated and you must not drive more than 30 mph. Who knew?

      The end of the day brought us to Mystic, CT. We walked around a bit as the sun was going down, catching some beautiful light and chatting with a road-tripping couple from Seattle. They have a motorhome and are spending a year on the road. I'm envious.

      ... As a result we decided to stay at the Sheraton hotel. The drive there was thankfully uneventful. We were quite proud that we were able to find our way to the hotel through the busy NY streets. Once at the hotel we parked the car in a garage and left it there for the duration of our stay.
      On our first night in the city we walked several blocks to Times Square. It seemed to be a gathering place with hundreds of ...

      Three light structures have been built on this site. The original 35-foot tower, built in 1810, was destroyed by a hurricane in 1815. It was replaced in 1816, by another 35-foot stone tower with a revolving light and ten lamps. The present octagonal granite tower was built in 1856. ...
