We enjoyed a relaxing one night stay in the Summer Girl room at Steamboat Inn. It overlooked the Mystic River, with a wood-burning fireplace and a view of the Christmas tree in Mystic Park. We look forward to visiting Steamboat Inn again!

After a grueling 11 hour drive from PA we were delighted to be welcome by Nicole at the beautiful Steamboat Inn. Our room, Summer Girl, was even more than I had hoped for, it was an intimate refuge from a long day of travel. The floor to ceiling windows, comfy bed and wood burning fireplace made us just want to...

The hotel is in a great location on the water, and the view from the room was lovely. The rooms were spotless. However, for the price, I expected a room that was a little upscale. Instead, the inn, our room, and the furnishings seemed rather dated and ordinary. Also, the breakfast was very ordinary. In fact, I am pretty sure...

We loved The Steamboat Inn, our room looked right out onto the water. The location was perfect for exploring Mystic. Breakfast was fresh and very nice. The staff were helpful, professional and kind. It was a perfect escape.

My room was very comfortable and beautifully decorated. I loved the coastal charm to all the furnishing in my room and nautical feel of Inn.

Thank you for recently staying with us at SBI. I was thrilled to hear you enjoyed the breakfast and location of the Inn. It certainly is very convenient being moments away from the Seaport Museum and many Restaurants and Shopping. In an effort to constantly update the Inn, we will be upgrading the shower in this room during the winter...

Our stay at the Steamboat Inn was a truly awesome experience. Our view was one not too soon forgotten. We had easy access to the parking lot and just steps away from the Ancient Mariner; a restaurant that serves a dish named "Lazy man's lobster" (shelled lobster sauteed in butter with bread crumbs) simply delish! We never made it to...

My husband and I needed some time together. He has an illness and is unable to do too much. This was our first time to the Steamboat Inn. The location was absolutely perfect. We were able to walk to town, yet felt we had our privacy when we were in our room, which was right on the river. The staff...

Thank you for staying with us, we do appreciate you taking the time to leave a review. It sounds like Mystic and SBI were the perfect getaway for you and your husband with so many Restaurants and shopping moments away from the Inn. We do hope to welcome you back in the future.

The Sunny Girl room is painted a cheerful buttery yellow and boasts large picture window overlooking the sparkling water. The bed was comfortable and the conveniences included, but were not limited to a heated bathroom, a light and seat in the shower stall, and a large armoir for clothing and suitcases.

Let me start off by saying the only reason I don't give this inn a "5" is that I reserve that for places that are nearly perfect. Let me get the minor imperfections out of the way first - no elevator/easy access to some of the rooms if you have heavy luggage or a bad back, walls scuffed in room...
