The Whaler's Inn is located in the heart of Mystic. It is in walking distance to the shops and even the Seaport if you don't mind the 10 minute or so stroll. It has a great location near some really good restaurants and ice cream shops. My husband and I stayed with our daughter in the Noank House part of the hotel, considered the "family" part. While the accomodations sufficed for our short stay, there were a few things that could have been improved. First was that the wall AC unit in our room was extremely noisy, to the point where it was hard to sleep. Then the location on the main street seemed nice at first, but the 2nd night when it wasn't raining we realized just how loud it could be with cars and horns and the sound of the drawbridge going up every 40 minutes. The bathroom was on the small side with a stall shower and the toilet located in a "stall" like structure with walls on the 3 sides. This certainly wouldn't be comfortable accomodations for anyone bigger than "average" size. The bed was rather hard and the pillows rather flat and worn. The breakfast was exactly as described - truly continental breakfast. There was an assortment of muffins and bagels, cereal and yogurt, coffee juice, and tea. But that was pretty much it.
We were happy to stay here for the location, as we didn't spend much time in the room, and other options of staying in chain hotels are a 10 minute drive away (meaning you cannot walk to downtown Mystic from them). The room itself was a bit worn and not as comfortable as I would have hoped for the price.
