We visited the Inn for the first time this past weekend. We wanted to stay in the fall but there were not available rooms when we traveled. We planned a separate trip just to stay at the Inn and we so glad that we did. What a wonderful experience. The room was fabulous, the staff outstanding. We can't wait to plan another visit.
I can't think of a thing that Steamboat Inn needs to improve! We enjoyed our stay so much last December that we booked the Inn again this December. We especially like that, unlike staying in a hotel, at night it was so nice and quiet and relaxing. You don't hear the traffic outside, or people walking and talking in the hallway, or the television in the next room. And what a nice surprise to receive a gift bag to take home. Looking forward to coming back again.
My wife and I recently stayed at the Steamboat Inn for four days and nights. The Inn is ideally located in the heart of the Mystic Seaport. Easy for anyone to walk to restaurants and local shops. There are other attractions that are a short drive from Mystic to also enjoy. The staff at the Inn was professional and helpful in everyway. I am sure they would have done everything possible to accommodate us if any problem had arisen. The daily breakfast included with our stay was outstanding and the attending staff was excellent. We enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend the Steamboat Inn.
A fantastic hotel in every aspect, the staff are so helpful the rooms Are lovely and the location perfect right on the Mystic river, would highly recommend this hotel,and wold definitely stay there again
Very impressed with the comfort and quality of this Inn the staff were very friendly and helpful, and everything was set up,to make your stay a pleasant one. I would certainly recommend this Inn to my Friends and Family and would like to stay here again myself.
We keep coming back, for good reason. This inn only improves on perfection! Do as much or as little as you like as this inn affords both opportunities. Staff and hospitality outstanding, room comfort abounds, location fabulous!!
The feeling of luxury in a small setting made our stay at Steamboat Inn exceptional. The staff was very friendly and helpful, breakfast was wonderful. We stayed in the "Mystic" room which was filled with twinkling sunlight. Our view of the Mystic River was awesome, particularly enhanced by the arrival of beautiful ships entering under the drawbridge on a beautiful sunny morning.
My friend and I reserved the "Kathleen" and the "Wine and Dine" package to celebrate my birthday. The staff was wonderful. The room was just like the picture - really well-designed and attention to detail. Dinner at Bravo Bravo was superb. Cannot say enough about how much we enjoyed the Steamboat Inn. Thank you all for making our stay so memorable.
The Steamboat Inn came highly recommended by a family member. The Inn is located right near shops and restaurants and the rooms are spacious and beautifully decorated. Looking out at the Mystic River while relaxing by the in room fireplace was wonderful..Special touches like the evening cookies and sherry, as well as the breakfast in the morning, make this a place to go back to over and over.
The greeting was warm and welcoming. We were escorted to our room where the door was opened and beckoning. The room included a large bed and a leather loveseat in front of the working fireplace. In the evening you can stop at the common room to get sherry and cookies. Great for sipping infront of the fire. We overlooked the Mystic River which was quiet as it was December, it would be quite active in the Summer. Breakfast was delicious and the staff was extremely friendly. Because it has only 11 rooms it was very quiet and intimate. We rarely stay in hotels or Inns, but our experience at the Steamboat Inn has us already planning to go back!
We stayed here via a gift certificate from my son. It was a wonderful experience. The inn is right on the river/waterfront and located right downtown, so my wife loved easy access to all the shops in Mystic. The room was incredible, the only thing that was not exceptional was the breakfast. It was a normal muffin, bagel, coffee juice and scrambled eggs. Don't get me wrong, it was still very good, but often at a B&B you'll get an exceptional breakfast. You'll have a great time if you go, and we'll be back again.
From the moment you check in, you're treated like royalty. Staff is friendly and accommodating. Great clean room with comfortable bed, fabulous tub/shower. Breakfast was terrific each day with a good deal of choices. Complimentary soft drinks and coffee all day. Sherry and cookies each evening. All included. Would most definitely recommend to anyone looking for a great place to stay and unwind.
We received a warm welcome on arrival and we're delighted with our room (No.1-Ariadne) which was very comfortable and spacious having a large bathroom with a double whirlpool tub. There was a lovely view of the river and being on the first floor gave more privacy. The location is ideal for restaurants and shops and is within easy walking distance of the excellent Mystic Seaport Museum, a must visit. This rated in the top three of all the Inns we stayed at during our 3 week tour of New England.
My husband and I needed to get away for 2 days after a very stressful month. We found a perfect retreat at Steamboat Inn. The room was wonderful though at peak tourist time being along the water at street level might be a little intrusive. Very clean and loved taking the bikes out around town. The only negative was that the staff were not overly friendly. They were gracious when asked to leave the car parked after we checked out and to take bikes, but a little short on that B&B hospitality. Would stay again though and would recommend.
Recently spent 2 wonderful days at Steamboat - Mystic suite. What a beautiful location and atmosphere. Convenient to all Mystic sites and walking distance to many great eateries. Room was spacious, clean and comfortable, with a fantastic view of the river - real fireplace, an added plus. The staff was friendly and very accomodating, yet not intrusive. We did not partake of the breakfast offerings (just coffee) so, cannot offer a dining rating. An amazing Inn - highly recommended. We will be sure to return time and again.
I loved my stay at the Steamboat Inn this spring. The location made it worth every penny, but overall I was extremely pleased with all other aspects of it. I was apprehensive about booking a B&B for the first time, but I found a virtual tour of several Mystic inns while browsing for reviews. Here is the one on the Steamboat: http://mysticshops.tv/steamboat-inn/ There are a few different ones on this site. If you're looking for something in particular, I would check it out before booking. Overall, I would rate the Steamboat highly and would stay here again.
Wonderful suites and wonderful sweets in the morning. Views and food are outstanding!! Fireplaces, jacquzzis, evening port, morning breakfast, walk to everything! What more can you ask for? We go at least once a year for the past 4 years. Can't be missed!
Feels small and intimate, like a large B&B. Although advertised as a Continental breakfast, there was a large selection of items, including fresh fruit and cereal. Staff was friendly and helpful. Great location.
