Quaint rooms, its in the middle of restaurants and little shops. Staff is friendly and they offer free breakfast. I'd visit again. Good sea food restaurants located around the hotel. Clean and comfortable we were pleased.

We stayed in the Hoxie House at the Whaler's Inn for the Mystic Art festival. The room was absolutely gorgeous - spacious, comfortable, well-appointed. We had a great view of the river, bridge, and festival-goers. The room was full of small amenities that made it a perfect escape from the crowds after a busy day. Comfortable bed, enormous jetted tub,...

We stayed at The Whaler's Inn for seven days, and we enjoyed every moment of our time there. Our room was in the 1865 house which was a wonderful location for us. We enjoyed sitting on the front porch and in the plastic Adirondack chairs on the front lawn, watching tourists and locals walking by with their dogs. Mystic is...

Thank you for your continued patronage. As you mentioned we are under new ownership and some small changes have been made, but we continue to strive to offer the same friendly personal service as we always have. I am not sure exactly when you stayed, but we have recently completely re-done our wireless internet for higher speeds and more reliability....

We've been coming to The Whaler's Inn for many years and were surprised to be told upon check-in, by a new but friendly face, that there were new owners. I was happy to also see familiar faces in the staff at various shifts. That is smart, as the people there have always been an incredible asset. The room was comfy...

It is so lovely to have guests that come back and visit us year after year. Yes, we have changed ownership, but continue to strive to provide excellent customer service and clean, well appointed rooms. In regards to the continental breakfast; it does sound as if you visited us when our food vendor had recalled our the hard boiled eggs...

We had a nice stay at the Whaler’s Inn. The Inn is housed in multiple historic buildings. The room was nice and the updated bathroom was particularly nice. Simple breakfast is offered in the main building. It is in a great location for walking around Mystic.

From the initial phone call to book two rooms to leaving everything was great! Pictures of rooms and descriptions are very accurate! We were sorry that the great restaurant Bravo on site was closed on Mondays. I left an expensive item on the night stand and I was notified by phone about it. They kept it safe for me until...

We stayed here for 1 night, before our vacation on the Cape. Room was very clean, beautiful bathroom! This is a perfect location. There is a playground close by. Multiple restaurants and shops are walking distance. The Mystic Seaport was a 10 minute walk. Our kids loved it there! We will definitely stay at the Whaler's Inn again next time...

Thank you for taking the time to review the Inn. While Mystic is known as a great spot for families or for a romantic getaway, few realize that we do provide a great spot for a weekend away with friends! I am so pleased that you had a wonderful stay with us. We hope to see you again soon!

Excellent old inn. Nice and clean. Central of Mystic so you don't need to drive anywhere. Many great restaurants. 4 stars for because the walls are paper thin and you can hear everything. I mean "EVERYTHING"
