The Steamboat Inn on the Mystic River is a wonderful Inn offering beautiful accommodations with floor to ceiling windows that provide a beautiful view of the Mystic River. You have a view that allows you to see the Yachts and Large Sailboats go by, along with the daily boat activity. We stay in the Marie Gilbert Room #6 - this...

The Steamboat Inn is in probably the best location of any accommodation in Mystic. Lovely place, very nice room with a view and more than adequate breakfast. Would say we loved this place with just one catch. When we were in the breakfast room, the owner came in and was speaking to the woman who prepared the breakfast. He was...

We have stayed at the Steamboat Inn approximately 7 times and absolutely love it. The location, right on the river, near the drawbridge, is amazing to wake up to. It is so relaxing and beautiful. We usually stay in Summer Girl which is facing the river. Bright, cheery room. Very clean and comfortable. I love the feeling in the Common...

Best location in downtown Mystic, within walking distance of all the shops and restaurants. Book way in advance if there are any festivals or other happenings in town, and note that they require one night's stay paid in advance. The rooms are nice - we stayed in the Marie Gilbert and had a great view of the river - and...

Stayed at the Steamboat for two nights. We stayed in the Annie Wilcox room. A very comfortable room with a small sitting area that overlooked the river. They serve a full hot breakfast, which was great. In the afternoons they put out cookies & sherry for the guests. A lot of small nice touches. The location, of course is great....

If you're travelling from NYC to Boston (or vice versa) you could do a lot worse than make a slight detour and overnight in Mystic. It's a lovely little town and in my opinion the best hotel is the Steamboat. The rooms are very quaint and well furnished and the staff are courteous and professional. It's like stepping back in...

Great location on the Mystic River! Room was well appointed,staff friendly and professional. Bathroom was recently upgraded, beds were good. Breakfast was good. Only downfall but not of their own doing is lack of a private sitting space/terrace for first floor rooms. Chairs available. French doors to view the river would be nice. I will stay again! Ps!we left some...
