Holiday Inn New London - Mystic Area

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The hotel is a solid place to stay within walking distance of all in old New London. New London was founded in the 1690's and there is at least one building from the 1700's that I saw in good condition (it looked something like Paul Reveres house in Boston). There are many structures that date back to the 1850's and later. There are some very good historical markers (one to Nathan Hale, One to Eugene O'Neill, A beautiful Civil War Obelisk at the Main Intersection and a very beautiful Sailing Ship Columbia in the Harbor) and the "Scene" on Water street near the Harbor has some good life and restaurants. Muddy Waters is a great breakfast place. I also had a breakfast at the Holiday on the first Morning and it was very delicious. I had very good coffee, with my mini Waffles and my daughter had the spinach and cheese wrap. It was all fresh and hot and delivered in a good time frame.New London is a city that has obviously had some hard times but appears to be on a rebound. It is a good downtown to spend a couple of hours walking around including the seaport area.

Hotel was nice but room was very hot!! The A/C was not working. called the front desk and all they did was tell us to unplug and plug the ac and it should work. didn't pay much mind to it.

I truly enjoyed my stay at the New London Holiday Inn. We greeted by helpful and happy staff. Brian went above and beyond and I am grateful for all his help. The room was comfortable, especially the bed. The hotel restaurant, La Luna, was extremely delicious. I highly recommend this hotel and look forward to staying here in the future.

It's always a great to stay Mat the Holluday Inn New London. The facilities are extremely clean and staff is helpful.

For some reason the room was not cleaned the second day. Also, they were internet connection problems.

Room was clean, hotel staff weres very friendly, hotel restaurant was great, already planning our next trip

We stayed Valentine's Day weekend !! It was perfect!!! The restaurant is amazing!!

Stayed one night.. Very clean and comfortable beds!

The staff at this new Holiday Inn were pleasant, competent and accommodating with directions to local attractions. Located near the Waterfront District and a short drive to The Kate in Old Saybrook. The restaurant, La Luna, was really exceptional. Has all the amenities we have come to expect from Holiday Inn: safe, clean, comfortable. Stayed there for a concert during the Christmas season: very beautiful. Unfortunately, there is not access to rail transit that I know of.

Heater was not working well first night After changing a new room, can't sleep because of a noise. Staff was helpful, got us a third room at 12pm

very clean and well maintained hotel. needed some help adjusting the temperature in the room and got immediate assistance in how to work the thermostat that i didn't see... staff were very helpful in terms of arranging for a cab so that i could easily get to a hospital where i was attending a conference.

had an excellent time everything was very nice and comfortable. Staff was helpful and friendly

We only stayed one night because we drove up for a concert but the staff was very friendly and the room was extremely comfortable. It was my first time in Connecticut and I enjoyedit a lot. The location of the hotel is perfect. There were shops and the waterfront...very nice scenery. We will definitely return in the future.

Awesome experience as always, it's my third time at the holiday in express. It's a very clean and welcoming staff.

The staff we super. Great location, very close to transportation and walking distance to all.

my husband and I celebrated our first year anniversary of being married and stayed in this hotel. The rooms are super clean ! I loved it. The pool is heated and was lots of fun. The gym area has lots of things to get a workout in :)! The staff was very nice and always concerned for the client. I would recommend this hotel !

This hotel was very nice ! Friendly staff, clean comfortable . Great pool & fitness Ctr. Easy to find. Would definitely stay again!!!

Spent the weekend here with my girlfriend. Rooms are all brand new as of the summer of 2013 so you really have to disregard any reviews before then. Our room was HUGE, much bigger than an average room. Brand new everything: big flat screen tv, mini fridge, king size mattress, pillows, granite bathrooms. Right by downtown New London(which really isn't as sketchy as everyone makes it sound) a few minutes from the Coast Guard Academy and about a 10 minute drive to Mystic. I would definitely stay here again.
