“Fantastic venue”
Reviewed 20 June 2013

This is a must hotel not only a fantastic position right on the river but excellent accommodation with large beautiful rooms. A sitting area overlooks the yachts passing and waking to this sight in the mornings is a great start to the day, as is the breakfast.

The staff were friendly,helpful and professional and enriched the whole experience. Anyone staying here will certainly return it was the highlight of our New England tour.

Room Tip: We stayed victoria and will try for it again when we return for another visit.

I just got back from a 3 day get away with my husband for our anniversary. We stayed at the Steamboat Inn right on the river. We had the Marie Gilbert room which was very comfortable but kind of small. (Next time I think I would try for Summer Girl.) I really loved it but first a few minor complaints. I didn't realize i couldn't use the fireplace after May 31 and my tea tasted like coffee, either from the container or the process. But otherwise it is located in an awesome place and was comfortable. The bathroom needed a little updating but the bed was very comfortable and had views of the water from the bed and the couch. The breakfast was totally sufficient for most. Nothing fancy but it was good. Mystic is a very bike friendly town and we took a ride down river rd. upon arrival. Bluff Point State Park was a great place to ride a bike and is right on the ocean with beaches and cool views. Downtown Mystic has some great Restaurants ( we ate at Azu Azu and Riverwalk), great coffee places (especially liked the down an alley with many tea and coffee choices Green Marble Coffeehouse). A great walk and bike riding town with so much to see!

I recently stayed at the Steamboat Inn. I was very nervous about choosing where to stay because there are so many Inns in Mystic but I was thrilled with my decision. The Inn is beautiful and the room was great. Very clean and comfortable, we loved having a little seating area in the room. Waking up with the view of the river was so relaxing and thankfully the weather was great that weekend so it was really nice, exactly the break that we needed. Breakfast was more than I expected, very fresh and a lot of options. All of the staff was extremely nice and helpful with recommendations of what to do in the area (we were able to get discounted tickets to some of the local attractions through the Inn) or just general information and directions. It felt very homey, we could come back to the Inn in the afternoon after a day of sight seeing and have cookies and hang out before deciding what to do that night. The location is perfect, right on the water and super easy to get around because you are able to park at the Inn and walk all around the town. I absolutely loved it and can't wait to stay there again.

Room Tip: I would recommend rooms on the second floor. The first floor is right near the docks on one side an...

Very nice, well appointed rooms. The staff was helpful and very friendly. The stay includes a very nice breakfast and the location is extremely convenient to everything one would want to do while in Mystic. Note that while located on the Mystic River there is not necessarily a waterfront room. Room tip, avoid rooms 8-10 as they are located directly under the breakfast room and you will meet with an early wake up call.

Room Tip: Avoid rooms 8-10.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a review, we are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay at Steamboat Inn and beautiful historic Downtown Mystic. We receive many compliments on our wonderful breakfast, especially our homemade muffins, where you can find the recipe located on our website. We have eleven rooms, ten of which have superb views of the Mystic River and Historic Bascule Drawbridge and all located within steps from the dock/waterfront. Our 'Harmony' room #10 has a courtyard view. We were surprised and apologize that your mornings were disturbed from apparent noise upstairs. We look forward to welcoming you to the Steamboat Inn again.

This Inn is in a perfect location on the water. We stayed for 3 nights and the rooms were large, very clean and cozy. The view out the window was serene. The entire staff assisted us in many ways. Breakfast was fresh and delicious. Perfect place to stay when staying in Mystic.

Room Tip: We stayed in the room names Mystic. Also a very special room is Carolyn.

Just back from a weekend getaway. I have stayed at this inn 5 or 6 times over the past few years the staff are friendly and informative. The Inn is in the perfect setting just around the corner from the main street shops and restaurants.

The rooms are spotless large and comfortable. some with fireplaces and spa tubs this is a great choice if you are going to the casinos only about a 1/2 away

Room Tip: AZU restaurant around the corner is great
