A few tips on how to improve your stay at this Inn
First off we stayed in the Motor Lodge, which is the only place you can stay if you have children. Which is too bad because the Inn looks beautiful. Anyway, the good things: Pretty view, nice breakfast buffet, which is included in price, decent size clean rooms, nice outdoor pool, and convenient to downtown Mystic and attractions. Not so good things: the motor lodge is two floors.....make sure you are on the second floor. If not and there are children above you, you will feel like they are in your room! We had to complain every night to have the people above us stop jumping around. Our toilet made a rattling noise for 3-4 minutes after it was flushed by us or the people above us or next to us. The pillows are BRICKS! Do yourself a favor, bring your own, or call the desk and ask for their down pillows that they use at the Inn. We finally did the third nite, and we didn't wake with a headache the next day.
Eat at the Go Fish restaurant, it is excellent. You can pass on the Mystic Pizza....very average. Unless you just have to see pictures of Julia Roberts on the wall. The Aquariam and Mystic Seaport are wonderful to see. I would stay at this hotel again, just not on the first floor and I would bring my pillow.
Inn at Mystic reception top notch
Just returned from Mystic CT. We stayed elsewhere, but had the wedding reception at the Mansion at the Inn at Mystic. Unbelievable. It was very expensive, but a memory of a lifetime. the food for 175 people was incredible, the atmosphere was perfect, as was the service. From appetizers to desert everything was perfect! The grounds and gardens were also beautiful.
Classy, Comfortable, Great Views and Terrific Restaurant!
I had the opportunity to spend a few days at the Inn at Mystic (in the East Wing) during the summer, enjoying a room with a balcony view of the water.
The room was wonderful (and cool despite some hot weather) and I loved sitting on the balcony in the evening - taking in the views of Mystic Harbor and Long Island Sound.
The Flood Tide Restaurant was excellent and the attention by staff was first rate! Whenever I ran across someone working at the Inn, he/she usually gave a quick check to make sure I had everything I needed.
I took the opportunity to stroll and hike the grounds over the three days I was there and, as a gardener, I was delighted by the landscaping -- flower beds of all sorts everywhere with loads of different kinds of plants and interesting landscape additions like the carved "mushroom" tree. The view from the top of the hill by the Mansion (near the waterfall and flagpole) is the kind of view that makes you think, "this is why I love New England."
There are plenty of activities available at the inn: kayaks, tennis courts, walking trails, birding, etc.
But I like the fact that the place covers so much territory that you can simply wander and explore without a particular goal or destination in mind. Because that, to me, is the essence of a vacation.
No Hot Water in the Bathroom and Bugs!
My fiance and I were looking forward to a romantic weekend. We are getting married in 3 months and I am starting a new job in a few days, so we had lots to celebrate. We made reservations at the The Gate House which is one of the buildings on the property that has a jacuzzi. We were excited. Upon getting into the lobby, we were told that the faucet in the bathroom is running and we should keep it that way so that the pipes do not freeze. I realize it's very cold outside, but that potential problem should be addressed better than asking your guest to keep the water at a trickle. We got into our room only to find ants in the bathroom. There were about 5-6 ants and only around the base of the sink. My fiance is an avid hiker, so we decided we could live with a few ants in the one room. The rest of the room smelled musty and the heating system was noisy. The next morning, we awoke to no hot water in the bathroom including the shower. How romantic is it when you can not even take a shower. Upon checking out, I brought up the issues of bugs and no hot water and was met with a token "I'm sorry." There was no offer for compensation. I was only told that I should have called and they would of sprayed for the bugs. I refuse to sleep in a room that has just been sprayed with chemicals to kill ants. We were charged $280 for one night and could not even take a shower and by the morning there were ants on the hand towel! I expect more for that price or any price.
They obviously knew about the issue of the water and there are 2 other reviews talking about bugs, and I should of payed more attention to those, instead of reading about how romantic it is there from a few of the other reviews.
The Inn at Mystic is one of our favorite weekend getaways for the past 5 years. The rooms are immaculately clean, and the service is unsurpassed. It's like being far away from reality yet just a stone throw away from homeyou come back home feeling so much better about everything, and the setting is the best to rekindle romance which gets lost in the city's everyday hussle and bussle. In the Northeast The Mystic Inn is the place to visit. Get lodging and superb food.
The Best Place To Stay In CT
This is a charming Inn for those that want to get away for awhile.
Great restaurant on the premise, and you have a choice between modern or antique style rooms. This place is always spotless. I have stayed there several times a year for over 20 years. Do not be fooled by some reviewers here ... you will love this place! It is charming and has history behind it too.
Can you say bugs and old???
I was skeptical about making my reservations for this inn in the beginning and I should have went off of my instincts. This was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in for $179 for one night. For one the shower was dark and moldy smelling, the mini fidge in the room kept making noise all night. And then as I am sleeping a bug crawls up my leg. The front desk was no sympathetic and did not offer me a discount for having to sleep with bugs. I would not stay at this Inn or recommend you stay there. Iwas orginally planning in staying 3 nights but I only stayed one night and checked in to the Hilltop Inn which was very very clean with a wonderful staff and a jacuzzi in the room for $60 less!!!!
I spent 2 days at the Inn at Mystic. I stayed in Room 201 and the room was on the first floor. The room was quaint with a king size four-poster bed, whirlpool, and a working fireplace. I was very disappointed because you could hear the people above walking across the ceiling. It was very noisy and distracting, especially at night or during the early morning hours when you wanted to sleep in a little later than usual. I could not believe how loud the foot steps were.
Should you decide to stay there, request an upstair room. Also, I found a bug in the bath towel and bugs on the wall.
Showing Its Age
The Inn still has the surface appearance of a classic New England destination, but the interior shows signs of age and a little neglect.
The restaurant and bar were fine, and they do a nice job with the amenities such as afternoon tea, but overall, it's showing its age.
The ONLY Inn Mystic Needs
I have been going to this Inn every Thanksgiving and summer, and I have not been dissapointed once. Where ever you stay, be it the Motor Inn, the Gate House, the East Wing, the Inn, or just for a visit, this is the place to stay in Mystic. The Flood Tide is a great restaurant to eat in, even if you are just stopping by; (the Cinnamon buns at the breakfast buffet are convincing enough). Try it! You'll really like this place!

I'm exhausted and I need me time, time with friends etc. it's so hard here because I feel so self conscious about my body, my stretch marks, veins, my freckles etc. Why do we have to feel this way.

We drove up Route 1 thru Narragansett and saw the remains of the casino - apparently it was once quite a destination until a storm took out most of it. We ended up in a little mom and pop hotel.

Makayla and their daugher Avi were ecstatic to see each other and practically, no literally, plowed each other over when they saw one another! Riley and Mikey were slightly more apprehensive with one another. I'm sure by the end of the summer they will be best buds. Amanda and Mike also have an 11 month ...
