We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at the Steamboat Inn in Mystic. The location is ideal for exploring the area. It's very easy to walk to lots of restaurants and shops, as well as explore both banks of the river, the historic bridge, etc. We found the room (Mystic room) to be lovely -- very clean, cozy, comfortable. The decor is very nice nautical themed, and the view of the river from the room is spectacular -- windows along two sides of the room allow you to see down the river. The windows open to allow for a great breeze if the weather is good. We also got to enjoy a very nice fire in the woodburning fireplace in the room. It made for a very cozy and romantic weekend despite rainy weather outside. Breakfast had a good variety of food available (muffins, fruit, yogurt, eggs, bacon, quiche, etc.) and while not a full onsite restaurant, it was charming and convenient to enjoy a quick breakfast before checkout in the Common Room. If I had to list a complaint, I found the bed and pillows to be a little soft and uncomfortable, but that's really personal preference.
The staff was friendly and helpful. We also had a surprise delivery of champagne and chocolates to the room, which was a great addition! I would certainly book a stay here again. It was the perfect mix of maritime Mystic charm with modern amenities and an ideal location.
