Nice, but disappointed.
Room was large however the bathroom was inadequate. Very small, no counter, tiny shower. Bed was too firm. The restaurant at the inn was superb. Great location for downtown Mystic.

The Whalers Inn is a perfect place to stay in Mystic. It is walking distance to the stores as well as the best restaurants around. The room was amazing with a gas fireplace and jet tub. Highly recommend

The Whaler's Inn is Ship Shape
We had a great stay at the Whaler's Inn, the Inn is right in the heart of Mystic so we could walk to all the shops and restaurants. We ate breakfast at their restaurant the Shipwrights Daughter and it was fantastic. We also ate dinner across the street at Bravo Bravo that was very good. Our only problem was when the "boy' upstairs rolled in at 1:45 AM two nights in a row and slammed the doors, loudly dropped his shoes etc. It certainly wasn't anything that could be done about his rudeness, we were relieved when he left so we could get a good nights sleep.

birthday celebration
The location is amazing-lots to see and do in the immediate area-drinks,walks,restaurants,shopping. My daughter and I visited for 2 days for a quick/covid era getaway to celebrate her 30th birthday. We had plenty to do. The room was clean, well appointed - alittle smaller than anticipated and the housekeeping plan was appreciated. They did not come in to clean during our stay but left fresh towels at the door. I have already recommended the Inn to friends.

Beds were way too soft, my back was not happy. Just a heads up there are no elevator s in this historical building. Sink had no pressure but it was repaired. Great location and staff were great.
