Stayed one night of a four day trip to New England. Other nights stayed in modern Holiday Inn with thoughtful room design. This place, the room is large but poorly set up with a huge jacuzzi that we couldn’t care less about, the tv is tiny and too far away from the bed to see, the bathroom is old, the carpet is stained and needs replacing, no place to set suitcases, refrigerator Is sitting on the floor, no microwave- it is in the hotel lobby ??? - tiny supply of shampoo enough for one person. More modern hotels have USB ports bedside, have ample toiletries, have dedicated space for two suitcases, have at least a 46” TV, beautiful tiled bathroom that I’d like in my own home, lighting that you could put makeup on by - it seems like women are neglected in terms of having to sit and apply makeup not just at this place but most hotels. Overall this place needs a total makeover. Restaurant is ok, food pretty good and waitress was nice. Even though hotel has a view of harbor, there is a road in between and it really isn’t very picturesque. Wouldn’t stay again, better options around. Read less

My husband and I stayed here for one night. I was a little weary due to some of the other reviews but we decided to try it. The Inn needs major repair/ updating. The carpet had stains all over it, tv and jacuzzi tub did not work. The bathroom was not clean, I shouldn’t see other guests hair in the shower/ sink etc. The only plus is the location,… Read more

Nice gal at night desk check-in. Dimly lit hard-to-find room. Dirty worn hall carpet. Worn room carpet. Can't open window and feel protected. Lumpy mattress. The high price reflects a renovated establishment but it isn't.

As I sit here in the room that was 700 for two nights I am so disappointed. Happy to be here for a celebration but this Inn is overpriced , tired , rundown. Thought it would be fun to “upgrade” to a room with fireplace. How about duraflame log ?? Sheets are scratchy. Pillows stuff. Carpet dirty. Have yet to get the heat to work. There doesn’t… Read more
As I sit here in the room that was 700 for two nights I am so disappointed. Happy to be here for a celebration but this Inn is overpriced , tired , rundown. Thought it would be fun to “upgrade” to a room with fireplace. How about duraflame log ?? Sheets are scratchy. Pillows stuff. Carpet dirty. Have yet to get the heat to work. There doesn’t seem to have been a “special rate” either for guests attending the wedding. Don’t bother. There are so many adorable places nearby. Mystic is charming but this Inn needs a serious refresh. Read less
