Noted for having the best location in Mystic, The Whaler's Inn is a charming boutique hotel situated in the heart of Downtown. The Bascule Bridge, specialty shops, historic homes, fine restaurants, and lively pubs are just steps away! In addition, the world famous Mystic Seaport Museum of America and the Sea as well as the Mystic Aquarium are just a short distance from the central location. Comprised of five buildings, the hotel offers newly renovated rooms over much of the complex, including deluxe accomodations in the Hoxie House featuring fireplaces, air-jet soaking tubs and views of the Mystic River - perfect for a romantic weekend away. The Inn also features family-friendly suites that offer bunkbeds for the kids as well as conference space for our business travelers. Centrally located 2-miles from I-95 and within walking distance of Amtrak, The Whaler's Inn is easily accessible from both Boston and New York City and is an ideal New England escape.

We stayed here for a night when road tripping through New England! It was in the perfect location, you couldn’t be anymore centered in town. The staff was so welcoming and helpful. At night, you can sit in front of the fireplace or on the porch and enjoy a drink! Fabulous choice

This is about as close as you can get to running a hotel as a bunch of mini-airbnbs. Had a great stay, the staff is friendly, and a great area to explore. It is a bit on the pricey side, but was worth it in the end.

we took our time to book this hotel as we were a little put off by the photos showing the car park, thinking it might be a little like a motel. Far from it, and we're so glad we booked. The hotel has the main and annex buildings, all historic in nature, and our room had a very

Greetings mIssrica. Thank you for reaching out! I would recommend either our Hoxie House Guestrooms which overlook the Mystic River and the Bascule Bridge, feature gas fireplaces and AirJet Soaking tubs or I would recommend our Morgan Suite which is a beautiful oversized honeymoon suite. Our Morgan Suite is currently under renovation but will feature a large sitting room with views of Main Street, a fireplace, and a soaking tub. I hope this helps - please feel free to call the Front Desk if you have any additional questions! Warm regards, Amanda A. General Manager

Apologies Beth! Mystic is a very pet-friendly town, however, we do not allow any type of pet in the rooms at Whaler's Inn. Try Harbour Inn & Cottages, or Old Mystic Inn to bring your furry friend on vacation to Mystic!
