Loved Mystic...but not the hotel A review of Best Western Sovereign Hotel - Mystic
I loved the seaport and and the shopping. The Rhode Island beached are a few minutes away and they are clean and beautiful. However I do not recomment Best Western Soverign Hotel. They boast ont he web page that it is within walking distance of attractions. That's true, however you have to walk a long way on a busy highway with a teeny tiny sidewalk. YOu are walking very close to speeding traffic and it;'s not good for kids or strollers. To get to the aguarium you haveb to cross at a very busy intersection. Although the aquariun is a couple of blocks away we ende up driving there. Also... the breakfast was aweful. Even though it was free, we were 4 families traveling together and at least one person in each family passed on the breakfast. Actually teo out of 5 in my own family wouldnt eat it and one was my 16 year old son... and you know how THEY eat!! The other thiong was that they say they have wireless internet but we could not connect. They kept giving us new passwords and nont worked. They then tolf me that it was a problem with my computer, but I know it was not because i heard others going to the front desk complaining about the same thing and getting the same answers. I needed to ge tonline for my job and it was a big inconvenience for me. Aside fromt he hotel.... Mystic Pizza was delicious. There is a really cool shop called Silk Imports you should see. Also there is a bard wioth many kids activities in the Seaport that was great! all of the people in the seaport were so knowlegable it was an incredible learning experience. I recommend Mystic as a great vacation spot but stay away from best western.
