We had a terrific time at the Whaler's Inn. The room was clean and had a historic, old-fashioned feel. The hotel is within walking distance of many restaurants in downtown Mystic and just feet away from the river and Mystic's drawbridge. We would not hesitate to stay here again if we're back in Mystic.

- MK Cochrane

We booked a room block here for our wedding and are so happy we did. The location obviously can not be beat. The rooms are decorated beautifully and the staff is amazing! We are already planning to stay here again for our anniversary. Can't wait!

Truly appreciated the guidance from the gentleman at the front desk who guided me to...See More
