Romantic Get-a-way

4.0 on April 23, 2012

My boyfriend and I wanted to go away for our anniversary so we picked the Whalers Inn. We had come here before and loved the location and accomodations. Last year we had stayed in the Hoxie House. The room was beautiful and we loved that it came with the two person whirl pool tub and fireplace. A little more expensive but would be the perfect room for you if you like having the extras. Last weekend we were here and we wanted to try a different room. We stayed in the 1865 building in room #10. THe room had a perfect New England feel. On our anniversary my boyfriend and I got engaged. I will never forget the experience here. The staff were beyond accomodating and they joined in our celebration. All of the area restaurants that we visited were so friendly and delicious (I highly recommend S&P Oyster Co and their amazing martini menu and Bravo Bravo and their delicious mussels). I would definetly come back here again and again. Thank you Whaler's Inn for an unforgetable experience. Alex -New Britain, CT

My husband and I stayed here after much deliberation on a quick weekend away together. We watched a video we found online when looking for a place to stay and decided that it was our best bet. The Whaler's Inn definitely didn't disappoint. We very much enjoyed our stay. The service was wonderful and the rooms were comfortable and clean. It was located right in downtown Mystic, which was very convenient. If you want to see the video, copy and paste this link into your browser: There are other inns on that site that look equally as delightful.

Family together

Whaler's Inn was able to accomodate an extended family group in a very homey b&b way that a larger hotel would not have allowed. Also being in town and walking distance from Seaport made weekend very easy logistically as different members of our party could have different schedules. Only draw back potentailly was not common room to just be in - but we didn't really miss it either.

Whaler's - My second home

I have been staying at the Whaler's Inn once or twice a year since 1986. I can't imagine coming to Mystic and not staying there. The staff is wonderful. I've never had a reason to complain. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The food is always fresh and delicious. I fell in love with Mystic the first time I stepped off the train in 1986. Mystic is my fix. I must visit at least once a year to clear my mind and relax my body. There's always something new to see and experience. I recommend it to everyone! Do yourself a favor and come to Mystic and stay at the Whaler's Inn. You won't regret it. Sincerely, A very satisfied customer.
