“Seaside Weekend”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 March 2012

We have been to Stonington numerous times and have stayed at many B & B's. It is one of our favorite places on the planet! Since the Inn opened we have wanted to stay there and finally spent this last weekend there-Room 5 second floor, end room, seaside view. The room was lovely, the view amazing. The staff could not do enough for us. The fragrance of the bread and pastries baking late in the afternoon was wonderful! Wine and cheese at 6:00 was another added bonus! We met couples and chatted and ate at Milagros which is the best Mexican food we ever ate. The only negative is the noise. People stomping up and down the stairs, slamming doors and the drive-way outside to get to Skippers Dock ( a VERY BUSY restaurant) was awful! After a long day of walking the beach and shopping (and no sleep the night before) forget about a little nap before dinner, it wasn't happening. If you are a light sleeper this is not the place for a good night's sleep. When we go away, we want the whole package and rest is high on the list. Because of that, we won't return to the Inn, very disappointing.

Room Tip: as far away from the driveways on both sides of the Inn.

Keeper60, Manager at Inn at Stonington, responded to this review, 27 March 2012
We appreciate the very complimentary things that the reviewer pointed out about the Inn and our staff. We are sorry and puzzled that they found the Inn noisy. We wish that the guests had brought this to our attention while they were here so we could attempt to make their stay more enjoyable. That being said, we can honestly say that noise within the Inn and even noise outside of the Inn is not a common complaint. Most commonly people tell us they have had a very restful stay. Skipper’s Dock restaurant although a bustling afternoon spot in the summer, is not a big noise culprit in the off-season. They are closed up by 9:30 pm, all year long. Again we appreciate the comments but we’d like to point out that noise complaints are not a common occurrence and we hope this doesn’t unfairly deter guests from staying at our Inn.

Fantastic little Inn right on the water in Stonington. So very charming. Had a nice fireplace in my room with a great view of the water. Nice size rooms and very nicely appointed. Maintained the charm of the B&B while still having all the modern conveniences. Free wifi in the room too.

The breakfast in the morning is just right. Excellent fresh baked breads and fruit. Fresh coffee. Nice wine and cheese at the end of the day. Walking distance to a dozen or so great little restaurants and shops, and just a short ride to all that there is to offer in historic Mystic. Highly recommended.

Our favorite village on the Connecticut shoreline is Stonington, an authentic jewel on the Long Island Sound that we have visited for more than 15 years and have longed to wake up in. This year, between holidays, we decided to make that dream come true. And a dream it was in this perfect charming small hotel. The Inn at Stonington is intimate, with rooms on only three floors, some with balconies and Sound view. All rooms are beautifully-appointed with lovely wall paper and furniture, comfortable beds and amazing bathrooms. Breakfasts are served in a ground-floor common room flooded with light and with fine vistas over the water. You are welcomed to linger over newspapers with coffee, juices, a fresh fruit bowl, hard-boiled eggs, an assortment of scones, fresh cranberry and nut breads, hot cinnamon buns, hot and cold cereals accented with nuts, cranberries and brown sugar. Despite the beauty of the inn, its location and the excellent breakfasts, the highlight of the Inn for us was the wonderful staff. They could not have been more welcoming and accommodating, providing us with in-town dining tips as well as excursions into the lovely countryside north of the village. We have already made our reservations for Stonington's annual holiday stroll, when the village shops open their doors with festive food and drink, following the lighting of the town tree. We expect many happy returns to Stonington and this fine inn.

Room Tip: Even rooms on the town side, as ours was, were quiet. The more expensive rooms, on the Sound side w...

The Inn at Stonington is a great place to stop. We stayed in the most massive room in the renovated building next to the Inn itself. It was huge with a great spa. Stonington is much smaller and better preserved than Mystic, and I would recommend this if you want a more low key experience than staying in Mystic. The port is just a short drive away so you can have the best of both worlds.

Room Tip: Top floor in annex building - room was absolutely huge and well appointed.
