Trip Report Mystic/Stonington/Noank

We just returned today from a week in the Mystic area. Many shops were on reduced hours this time of year but Olde Mystic shops, the Seaport area, the beach, the whaleing ship, and the whole area was just wonderful. Restaurants were reasonable, the food was really good--the Kitchen Little just north of the Seaport entrance, opens at 6AM--the seafood omlette was to die for. The little food stand just next door did great lobster rolls and other seafood dishes for reasonable prices, opened at 11AM. Both had outside waterfront tables to watch the tall ships come in. Other restaurants in nearby New London and Groton were just excellent as well. We stayed at the Econolodge in Mystic. Reviews were correct--water was at body temperature and no hotter. Pretty cheap given the rates and the East Indians could have cared less about your cold showers. Stay elsewhere given the chance. We had a DN disturb sign on the door at 9AM when we'd returned for a brief freshening up session, about 20 minutes, and they NEVER RETURNED. When I checked about fresh towels late that afternoon, I was chastised for having the sign on the doorknob and told it was my fault. Great! My fault...

Go elsewhere unless you like cold showers and a rude desk clerk. The HOJO right next door was WAY BETTER!!
