Though we stayed for only one night, we were very impressed by every aspect of this motel. The friendly and efficient check in process, perfectly presented room with an uninterrupted view of the river, instant hot water, a most comfortable bed, fireplace ready to light and central location, we could not have asked for anything more.

It felt like we were on the water!! Lovely room and wonderful breakfast. Close to walk everywhere! We missed our flight and they so graciously didn't charge us for the night we missed which goes beyond regular customer service!

The inn is gorgeous and right on the wharf. Spectacular views. Beware, my friend, who need ADA acceible rooms. Although 4 rooms are advertised as accessible, this only means they are on the first floor. No grab bars even around toilet.

My husband and I stayed in the Marie Gilbert room and it was cozy, clean, and nicely decorated. The fireplace was such a nice feature, and the views of the Mystic River and drawbridge were so relaxing. Absolutely loved it.
