Everybody I interacted with at this hotel was super nice. For example, I had a bad connection when I made the reservation and the desk staffer had to take down my information several times, but she was very pleasant, patient and cheerful about it. Also, we were waffling about whether to stay an extra night (due to bad weather) and the same sweet, cheerful staff member was very helpful about rates and availability, with no pressure on us to decide -- was very understanding about our weather dilemma.
The hotel restaurant was also lovely and the staff there was extra friendly as well.
The front desk has discounted tickets to the Aquarium, and in every way they're willing to help you plan your stay. A friendly face makes such a difference. The rooms aren't super fancy, but they're clean, and they clean them promptly in the morning.
It's just a nice little place, and it's easy to walk to downtown and historic Mystic from the Inn. It's also convenient to a toy store, a health food store, and two very good restaurants across the street (and more restaurants are a short walk away, across the drawbridge on the main drag in Mystic).
