Perfect and Quick Summer Getaway
Host at the hotel was flexible and transparent to ensure I received the keys and checked-in to the hotel. They met the additional requests I had related to extra towels and water. The location is perfect and quiet in case you want to head to the beach or head into the town to grab dinner. Recommend staying here if you are in town.

Great staff made it a safe and comfortable stay
We took a recent 2 night couples getaway as we were always curious about the inn and its jazz club. Due to Covid, however, the usual amenities were not available. Lesley, our excellent host, upgraded our room and informed us of the local jazz combo playing on the front patio that evening (which was beautiful weather wise). Although the accompanying dinner was sold out, we had a small snack and sipped wine for a wonderful evening. The only problem we had was a loud squeak in the room bed which we reported the next morning to one of the inn workers. Otherwise Lesley, the inn staff, and the local jazz combo made our stay memorable. As aside note, the inn is close to Mystic attractions(which we visited) and across from the Florence Griswold Museum.

Pristine upkeep - very clean
This place was pristine as far as cleanliness and up keep. I always bring a blue light with me now to check for bed bugs and such. This place passed the blue light test! But because of stupid Covid..we didn't get any room service. Like returning from a day out and having your bed made! That is when you really feel like you are on vacation!

We enjoyed our stay at the Inn immensely. Very clean accommodations and very nice staff. Leslie was super helpful in assisting me with plans during our stay - restaurant recommendations, Maugle Vineyard, Hangry Goose, Griswold Inn for dinner. All wonderful suggestions and we did it all! We will be back without a doubt!
