The Inn at Stonington is truly a diamond in the rough. My wife and I decided to get away for the weekend spur of the moment and reserved a suite at the Inn based off of a recommendation by my sister. What a treat we were in for! The staff were more than friendly. The concierge was absolutely effervescent and incredibly helpful. She showed us our suite and all its amenities with the air of one excited to be a part of our stay. The suite itself came with a gas fireplace and a spacious connected bathroom which contained a jacuzzi tub and a walk-in shower big enough for two. The Inn serves a continental breakfast which filled us both and included fruit, yogurt, boiled eggs, a number of baked goods, and coffee and/or juice. In the evening, the Inn has a wine and cheese social for its guests, which also includes an appetizer plate from the Breakwater restaurant a stone's throw away from the building. Again, the staff were delightful and friendly. While other hotels and inns in the area charge upwards of $500/$600 a night, a stay at the Inn cost $575 for two days. Which is a wonderful way to begin a weekend of shopping, dining, and exploring in picturesque Stonington Burrough. If you need a weekend escape, give the Inn at Stonington a try. You will not be disappointed.
We stayed in room 19 in the annex--great view of the harbor. Room was spacious as was the bathroom. We enjoyed a glass of wine while we sat out on the balcony. Really fresh, delicious baked goods for breakfast in the main building. Every staff person was friendly and helpful throughout our stay. I would recommend considering changing the wine and cheese hour to 5-6 rather than 6-7. We most certainly will plan another visit.
What an amazing experience I had. I booked a romantic weekend for me and my woman not knowing what to expect. This was the first time I booked a vacation online and from the time I booked the trip until I left there just this past sunday this place treated me like a King. The room was amazing the staff were incredible and the food , both prepared onsite and their recommendations for local restaurants were spot on. My girl and I will recommend this location to anyone looking for high quality pampering treatment and accommodations plus a staff of friendly , helpful staff that completed this incredible experience.
What a lovely experience! The staff is attentive yet relaxed - helpful yet not intrusive. The room I stayed in was super clean and well appointed with a very large spa tub. This INN cares about the comfort of their guests. There was an attention to the detail from the beginning of the reservation experience (thank you Anna Maria) until my sad goodbye (I really did not want to leave). And, here is more about my stay at the Inn of Stonington: This Inn is both intimate yet spacious. There is a large open area with a fireplace many separate places to either have privacy or to mingle with other guests. It is welcoming yet not designed to force interaction. For breakfast the Inn offers a plentiful morning nosh of coffee/tea/juice...many different kinds of fruit; yogurt; hard boiled eggs; cereal, breads/muffins etc... btw..love their coffee! In addition, they graciously include an early evening hour of wine, fruit and cheese, biscuits, etc....not often that you are welcomed in the early hours and late in the day - but this Inn pays attention to these details. It was a really beautiful stay - and, I plan on doing what others whom I met have done...i.e. return as often as I can! (btw...I was not hired to write this nor am I connected to the profits of this special place...as I was writing it - I thought that perhaps others would think perhaps it sounded to good to be true - and, if I read this I might think that - but I am sincerely sharing my experience as a guest staying on November 9th, 2016).
The Steamboat Inn is our favorite place to stay when we are in Mystic, and we have stayed in their 'Summer Girl' room many times. We were quite surprised to discover that 2016 is the 25th anniversary of the Steamboat Inn. Congratulations! We did stayed in the Steamboat Inn on our first time in September 1991. Still just as great as our first visit to Mystic, CT. Keep going Steamboat Inn, we will be back again.
The room was great with a classic New England nautical theme. Extremely clean and comfortable in the best location in Mystic. Steps from the dock along the river and next to the iconic draw bridge. Excellent value we will surely refer to!
My husband and I enjoyed our vacation at Steamboat in July 2016. We took a chance on something new and we were not disappointed. Great rooms, service, hospitality, location and views. Can't wait to return
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.
