“Worn down”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 May 2014

We recently stayed for a weekend as a little getaway. We had two queen beds with a jetted bathtub. The room was worn down and old, could definitely use refurbishing. The bathtub worked well but was held together with some sort of tape. Definitely seen better days. The indoor pool was ok but the water was cold, not warm as you would expect. It was ok for the money but definitely nothing to write home about. Its right on the edge of the highway which is convenient but noisy. We walked across the street for our morning coffee at Dunkin Donuts which was nice.

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your recent stay with us. I am sorry the room was not to your liking. we are working on updating the rooms this year and hope that you will give us another try.
We do keep the pool temperature at 80 degrees and will check our log book to make sure it is maintained.
again I do apologize and hope to see you again.

There are a lot of hotels to chose from in Mystic, but you can't beat the location, price and service at the Howard Johnson. The staff is first rate and go out of their way to make sure your stay is perfect. Although there is no breakfast, you can't beat the fresh brewed coffee in the lobby each morning and fresh baked cookies every afternoon when you return. You do get a discount at the Mystic Diner attached to the hotel that serves delicious food and huge portions. Not only do they have a lovely indoor pool, but they are the only hotel that offers free use of bicycles to tour around Mystic which was great fun and easy. The rooms are quite large, clean and have very comfortable beds. The hotel is installing a fitness center as I write this which I look forward to using on our next stay.

While the Howard Johnson is an older motel, it was clean and well kept and really a great value and it a good location. The Friendly's was within walking distance for breakfast or lunch. The rates do adjust depending on the season, it was only $62/night for two Queen Beds which was a great deal in late April early May.

Returning from Mystic, Ct yesterday after a 4 days I can only speak to the manner in which myself and the 53 other people were treated by the staff and Ms. Terry Connor the General Manager of the Howard Johnson Mystic.

It is uncommon that at least one person on holiday excusions finds something that creates a problem for them, this was not the case at our stay at the Howard Johnson Mystic.

At a time when the cost of things makes one overview their spending budgets, the rates for accommodations were quite reasonable. The Howard Johnson Mystic is also close to attractions and restaurants are in plenty within a stone's throw.

As a COO in the Food & Beverage Industry (Cornwall & District Navy Veterans' Association, Cornwall, Ontario Canada.) our motto is " A Place Where Hospitality Greets You With Open Arms" so does the Howard Johnson Mystic under the staff and personal management given by Ms. Conner.

I would highly recommend this site for accommodation needs to anyone traveling to Mystic, CT.
