With so much to see and do in and around Mystic, it makes sense to choose a centrally located hotel with great rates. A short way off of Interstate 95 at exit 90, the Econo Lodge Mystic is perfect for budget travelers looking for a comfortable and convenient place to stay. There is plenty of free parking, and designated spaces for larger vehicles, RVs and buses. Guests are invited to enjoy a complimentary breakfast each morning and Wi-Fi Internet access is free. When the weather is warm, use the seasonal outdoor pool, perfect for a sunny afternoon.
Rooms
All the essentials are covered in the comfortable guest rooms at the Econo Lodge Mystic. Find a cable television, hair-dryers and coffee-makers. Nice extras include a microwave and a mini-refrigerator in every room. Wi-Fi Internet access is also complimentary in all rooms at the Econo Lodge Mystic.
Property features

Stay near the charming Mystic Seaport in this affordable and nicely kept hotel. Convenient to Interstate 95, Connecticut College and all the attractions in Mystic, the Econo Lodge Mystic is a great choice for commuters, vacationers and anyone visiting friends and family. A seasonal outdoor pool is a perfect place to hang out on a warm, sunny day. Or take a scenic walk along the water at the Seaport.

 

Be sure to stop into the Museum of America and the Sea. Visitors can learn about what is below the waves at the impressive Mystic Aquarium, where it is easy to see marine life up close. Adjacent to the aquarium is Olde Mistick Village, known for its specialty shops. An entirely different shopping experience awaits at Foxwoods Casino, and similarly at Mohegan Sun. Contemporary in every respect, these resorts offer hundreds of shops, restaurants, shows, concerts, and of course, casino gaming. At the end of the day, update friends and family about the trip via the complimentary Wi-Fi Internet access at the Econo Lodge Mystic.

On the way home from visiting friends in Boston

Smelled stale and musty when we first walked in, but we got used to it. Beds were comfortable. Plenty of nice hot water Right near Friendly's restaurant, and other attractions like little artisan shops and the aquarium.

Econo

We stayed here 2 nights for an extended weekend getaway. It was in a great location to go to the aquarium and see the seaport area. It was nothing special but for the cheapest hotel around it was not bad at all. The room was not perfect but it had what we needed for a couple nights sleep (not the best place to "hang out" in or around). The pool was nice to have for the evening we came back from the beach and wanted to catch the last of the sun & relax a little early before seeing the little village shops and grab some dinner. If you are looking for a decent place to stay at a decent price, Econo is not bad & a definitely an option. They replace sheets, towels and little sink/bathroom items daily and had internet, mini fridge, tv/cable and an ice machine which comes in handy if you are there over night. No water area and the breakfast was plain, small and had very few options- there is a diner right next door if you want a better breakfast. If you're looking to go to several different beaches and have to travel around, be prepared for traffic if you don't get an early start. I would do a little more research and look for another place next time if we come back.

Money-saving tip: In Hotel

Cheapest hotel we found in the area, great location and in walking distance to restaurants or the village to do a little shopping and the aquarium. Not the best place for couples, its more of a family oriented place especially when going to beaches.

much needed vacation

It was cheap motel. When we first got there they gave us a cigarette induced room. We asked for another one and they gave us a smoke free room. Thank you. We were within walking distance to the Sea port--very nice. All was well. We traveled with two dogs--very quiet but Econolodge charged where another place didn't.

Good location, outdated rooms.

Location is awesome for those passing through especially with pets. Not the nicest but defiantly the cheapest. Overall decent hotel.

Fine Hotel, Great Location

We spent two nights here for a long weekend in Mystic. The hotel was perfectly fine - clean, affordable, good location - but nothing special. I appreciated how easy it was to walk to Old Mystic Village and the Aquarium, and it was an easy mile-long walk past the Seaport to get into town. Right off the highway, it was also very easy to drive to the beach from here. The pool was small, but nice, and the man at reception was very friendly. Our room looked out onto a graveyard, which I don't think anyone else here mentioned. Overall, a good price and a good location. I'd stay here again.

Sightseeing tip: Long walk from hotel

Getting in to town is about a 30 minute walk, but it's flat and you pass some great things on the way - cute shops, the Seaport, ice cream stands. It's a nice way to see a part of Mystic you might otherwise just drive through quickly.

good times

I was completely satisfied with my accommodations and when my daughter had a problem at a different motel they were able to help by switching things so they could give her a room.

Mini Getaway

The room was clean and the staff was wonderful, but the rooms are outdated. The rooms are very affordable compared to others in the area, but a little more comfort in the rooms would make the stay a lot better!

Be sure to check out Abbott's Lobster Shack when you are out and about. Eat on tables outside right on the water. Enjoy steamers, lobster while watching the boats sail by.

Good for the price

Looks better in the pic, but for the price And being so close to 95, it wasn't too bad.
