I got up, checked out of the Holiday Inn Express, and headed down to the job site. Got coffee at Bartlebees again, it's a good clean place on Route 1 a couple blocks south of the drawbridge. After cleaning up some loose ends I hit the road, stopping at the Mystic Seaport to get some postcards, and the Seaman's Inne to get some lunch and scribble …
... and Bridgehampton was interesting. Very quaint little villages with big houses (ok, more like mansions and estates), with very high-priced shops, including the consignment shops. The best deals were found at a wonderfully large roadside local produce market where we picked up some Concorde grapes, jet star and honey crisp apples, cranberry beans, butternut squash, and a multitude of hot peppers including a cherry bomb (supposed to be VERY ...
So, like clockwork Kim went and got the rental car, texted me he was on his way back. Myself and bags ( no nasty comments please) waiting at the curb. Here's the important part of the story....GPS wouldn't work so kim googled a route that had NO TOLLS. Took us 45 min to get out of NYC and on our way north to Woodbury commons...200 designer discount stores. We walked around NOT IMPRESSED. Kim got ...
... because of how great it felt to be doing this by myself, and how much I enjoyed my own company and that of nature. Of course I wasn't really all alone....I always love blogging and connecting with folks in that way when I travel, so thanks to everyone who followed me, even if it was just here and there! If you ever get a chance to take off and wander by yourself for an extended period of time (or even a short period of time), I highly recommend it!
... Seaport is a great place to tour for 3+ hours. Lots of history as they have recreated an 1827 working seaport complete with stores, houses and shipbuilding galore! Lots of boats to see as well. This is very well done and we really enjoyed it!

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Express Mystic
While the location of this hotel is excellent, I cannot say the same for its management and service. We were "guests" at the hotel when a storm knocked out electrical power in areas of Mystic. Unfortunately, this hotel was in the area with no power. We were without power for 24 hours, without management assistance for the same amount of time. There was absolutely NO plan for emergency assistance to assist "guests" with getting up and down the pitch black stairwell (not a single flash light was to be found the first night); the emergency power system failed when the batteries died, thereby leaving the fire sprinkler system inoperative; management was NO WHERE to be found even though she lives at the hotel; no assitance was offered when requested to help with alternative accommodations in the area. When staff was asked for an update as to when the power may be restored, we were met with shoulder shrugs and "who knows?"
I just stayed at the Holiday Inn Express for a weekend getaway with my friends, and all I can say is AWESOME! PERFECT location right off the highway, down the street from many of the local attractions and directly across the street from shopping. The rooms are mostly all studio suites that are clean, spacious, and comfortable. The staff is wonderful, courteous, and helpful. There is a indoor pool, internet connection, and complimentary breakfast that has a large selection that includes: cereal, yogurt, oatmeal, boiled eggs, coffee, and OJ. Nothing in Mystic is cheap, especially during peak season, but this is well worth it. Family friendly, and just great for the price. The casino is just two exits away, and if you are thinking about going to Block island, it is just a 10-15 ride away to catch the ferry. I highly recommend the hotel.
I stayed with my wife and 2 kids for one night (7/25/06) and here are my observations:
Maybe I'm just used to something different, but this hotel is not nearly the best in town.
What a beautiful hotel !!
My family and I just got back from a stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Mystic. This hotel is lovely. The lobby is spacious and well decorated, the rooms are very large with nice furnishings and the bathroom had a granite vanity-top with a dark wood base. Many extra touches gave this hotel a very high-end look. Breakfast was delicious and the staff was courteous. Location is great. It sits on a hill overlooking Old Mystic Village. I would definitely recommend this hotel. It really is beautiful.
Hotel was clean and convenient. The staff was very helpful. The breakfast buffet needed improvement as they were out of most items. Managment said they had more guests that weekend than anticipated.
The hotel is very conveniently located within walking distance to Old Mystic Village, Go Fish Restaurant, Mystic Aquarium. Its only about a 20 minute walk to the Mystic Seaport museum. The hotel has breakfast included. Breakfast was a continental variety. Some items were dry cereals; fruits (oranges, bananas or apples); instant oatmeals; plain bagels; sliced raisin bread; yogurts; and the tastiest & warmest cinnamon buns. Beverages were coffees, teas, OJ and 2 kinds of milk. The room was clean and looked modern. Non-smoking was requested and delivered as promised. We needed a crib and it was already in the room when we checked-in. Bathroom was clean and had no smell at all. The indoor pool was available from 9 to 9, as was the hottub.
Nice and friendly
Our stay was very nice- everything but the weather. We spent the day at the aquarium... Our room was huge and spotless, and the front desk was very friendly. My only complaint was the price- but you get what you pay for...
The resturant had pretty good food- their free breakfast could use some hot items...
I want to stay here again in a few months.... Close to everything, and very, very nice..!
The best kept secert. We had a hard time booking a room with this hotel. If you been to the area, you'll notice that the OLD hotel that was there, no longer exsists. It's now a Holiday Inn. Everything is new. The lobby is beautful, and the rooms, are huge.
The breakfast, the pool and the staff were all great!!!!
I will look forward to visiting again...!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Great accomodations in mystic
just came back from a night at the mystic holiday inn express inn and suites. the property is up on a hill so it over looks the olde mystic village. the hotel itself is immaculate with large guest rooms and beautiful bathrooms. the indoor heated pool and hot tub were a refreshing break from a day at mohegan sun casino which is not to far from the hotel. The property offers a pretty nice continental breakfast for those on the go. nice friendly staff. All i can say is try this hotel
