Easy access to the highway and plenty of free parking means getting out for some fun could not be easier. Guests can visit Olde Mystic Village for a look at life in the past or head out to Foxwoods Casino or Mohegan Sun for an impressive display of modern entertainment. Relay travel stories or stay in touch with the office during the trip with free high-speed Internet access at the Howard Johnson Inn Mystic.

But there is no need to go too far for a bite to eat with the Equinox Restaurant, which is on-site and open daily from 7 a.m. to midnight. Also close at hand, the heated indoor pool is always lots of fun.

Close to Foxwoods

Looking for a hotel close to the casino? I booked a room at HJ in Mystic, CT because of its proximity to Foxwoods. Although average looking from the outside, I found a clean, comfortable room with friendly staff, free wifi, and a pool. If you don't want to drive to the casino , call Uber, which is quicker and cheaper than a cab. There is a small diner and a Friendlys right across from the hotel. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a great hotel close to Foxwoods.

good value

We went to Mystic on the off season for a quick getaway. The hotel met our needs, and was located right in the middle of town. The amenities were pretty basic, and there was no continental breakfast, but it was a good value for the money, and the staff was friendly and helpful.

Definitely needs an upgrade

When we arrived at the hotel mid-evening, there was a hand written sign saying "Sold Out" on the counter at check-in. We knocked on a nearby door and called out several times. But, it wasn't until we opened the door and yelled that a staff person appeared. She was nice enough, but it was a weird way to check in for sure! The hotel is somewhat run down. While we did okay in the room, I had the feeling that I might see a bug at any minute. The biggest issue was that our room felt like it was feet from the highway. The traffic noise was very loud. In addition, there was a bright light on the little deck outside the room which could be not be turned off and made the room brighter than usual. We discovered in the AM that the hotel is well located for visits to Mystic Village and the Aquarium. There is also a great breakfast diner right next door. But, we would not want to stay here again.

Entertainment tip: Short walk from hotel

The Mystic Aquarium is a ten minute walk from the hotel. Just cross the street and walk past the Steak Loft restaurant and you walk right into a great shopping area, called Mystic Village. Right beyond that area is the Aquarium, which our thirteen year old son loved!

Weekend Getaway

We stayed at this hotel for one night and it was great! We were surprised to see how spacious the room was when we arrived. I thought it was a bit too overpriced considering there isn't a breakfast included. Overall, it was a nice stay, comfortable beds, and the staff were very friendly!
