This Inn exudes charm. The staff was helpful, thoughtful, informative and kind. Location was perfect. Surrounded by great food and entertainment. Our room was located in the 1865 house. It was simple with no fireplace. We didn't mind as majority of our time was spent outdoors. My husband and I came to Mystic for a weekend getaway without the kids....

Beautiful accommodations, quiet even in a front room. Breakfast service had great variety with friendly service. Convenient walk to the fabulous shops and the seaport, which in late December, was serene and beautiful.

Mystic is a great little getaway and the Whaler's Inn did not disappoint. We stayed in a very romantic room with a fireplace and a hot tub. There were great restaurants and bars. The staff at the Whaler's Inn were lovely. Victoria was extremely helpful and recommended great spots for cocktails and dinner. My boyfriend LOVED the chocolate chip cookies...

Second stay at The Whalers Inn, it's a charming Inn. Rooms are clean, beds are soft, staff are friendly. Can't beat the location and the continental breakfast is delish. I would happily return. The onsite restaurant/bar Bravo is very good as well.

The Whalers Inn wasn't cheap, though I have to say that our room was amazing. And you can say that for the rest of the hotel too. There are complimentary cookies and coffee, which is a nice touch, and the staff are pleasant. But what really lets this wonderful place down is the breakfast, which is pretty awful when considering...

I stay at the Whaler's Inn whenever I am visiting Mystic, the quintessential New England fishing village. In fact, for my fiftieth birthday last year, my family and I booked a number of rooms and were treated wonderfully. This most recent trip, a romantic getaway, exceeded my previous stays.
