The Whaler's Inn is quite a place, with 5 different buildings in a small complex. Part of the inn is Victorian inn, the other part more modern hotel-like. We know this from first hand experience, as we had rooms in 3 different buildings by the time our one night was thru. Our trip to the Whaler's Inn was complicated, to...

Was looking for a quick get-away weekend. Whaler's Inn offered a great rate for an incredibly cozy comfortable room day. Staff was incredibly friendly from the moment we booked our room which was only the night before our arrival. Hotel is in the perfect location-shops, restaurants: everything is in walking distance which made going out at night a lot of...

We have a girls weekend there every year and we always have a great time. We have been going back for about 8 years They take very good care of us; always have great suggestions for things to do and places to eat. Not that there is any shortage of either. The onsite restaurant "Bravo" is excellent; although always busy...

I'm not sure how I missd reviewing this place when we were there in September. May as well tell the truth. It was probably senility. In our month of traveling the East Coast, two places stand out in my mind and I recommend them to everyone. Whaler's is one of the two. I booked the room I loved from the...

The Whalers put on an excellent breakfast, offering a very wide choice and plenty of delicious fruit - quite simply the best breakfast in the whole three weeks we were in US. On the downside, there is no lift, so unless travelling light you might want to bear this in mind when booking. Parking can be a bit tight, but...
