This marina and inn are in a great location, and the pool is awesome. The Inn is just minutes away from Old Mystic and Stonington Village, both of which are awesome day trips and perfect for walking around and looking at the old homes. The owners can often be found walking the property. There are two bathrooms available for those using the marina, in addition to whatever bathrooms are in the rooms. I have not stayed in the rooms, so I can't speak to them, but the location is prime; quiet and convenient. If you plan on using the marina, know that you have to pass out of the cove under a low bridge, and that the water is quite shallow at low tide. Watch hill is just a quick boat ride away.

We rented an efficiency(#4) which has a great view of the cove for 4 weeks this summer and really enjoyed ourselves. The owners,staff & other guests were friendly.
The efficiency was neat & clean and the pool clean & refreshing(esp.after a day of fishing).
The location is close to fine restaurants, shopping, beach,bookstore,farmers market,etc...
We'll go back next year.

My family and I booked several rooms and a cottage and found this inn to be clean, the staff, especially the owners were very nice and the location was perfect. We used the kayaks available through the inn and had a fun time in the cove, and we used the pool, picnic tables and grill. I would definitely stay here again as we had a great time and I would highly recommend this inn as a great place to stay near Mystic at reasonable rates.

Good off-the-beaten-path place to stay on CT shoreline. Quiet and clean. Right on water with marina on site. Pool was great. All guests and staff very considerate of others. Ask for one of the poolside rooms (covered porch), or an efficiency 1 - 4 for the best views of the water.

The facilities are clean and the swimming pool is a big plus, but nonetheless, this is not a relaxing place to stay because of the behavior and attitude of the proprietor, who watches the guests like a prison guard watches his prisoners. I thought that he was rather funny to observe at first but he quickly will get on the nerves of even most laid-back person.

I don't know where to begin. We paid for a number of nights in advance but we still needed to pay about a $90 balance. He would not take a credit card because it was "such a small amount." I immediately thought of the Dunkin' Donuts that I charge daily for $1.96. Next, he practically accused us of lying to him because we told him that we had two people but in fact we had two adults plus our seven-month-old son. He then showed me a refrigerator in the office that I could use if necessary, which I thought nice, but then he mysteriously demanded that only I use it and not my wife. This demand was repeated, just in case I didn't hear him the first time.

When other family members, who were also paying guests, arrived for the weekend to celebrate our dad's 73rd birthday, everyone in our group was then subjected to the proprietor’s unique style of hospitality. For example, he instructed us on how a garbage bag works by telling us to "to pull the strings" to close the bag. He told my wife and me, who are attorneys, not to "pee in the pool"--I'm not kidding and neither was he. He told us to put coffee filters in the coffee maker before adding the coffee grounds, just in case we were making coffee for the first time in our lives or we had just arrived in an ambulance fresh from a lobotomy. He yelled at the children numerous times simply because they were being children. He told my brother-in-law that he was not permitted to smoke in bed, simply because he saw him smoking a cigarette outside. He accused my sister, erroneously, of having too many people staying in her room. He told us we had parked in the wrong places in the unmarked gravel and weed-filled lot and made us move our vehicles. There were so many instances where he interfered with our free enjoyment and use of the property for which we had paid that I would need to spend the next few hours writing down examples. The proprietor is so critical and demanding of the guests, you would think that he is paying you as an employee and not that you are paying him to stay at his motel (don’t be fooled by the words “inn” and “marina” in the name).

The most annoying thing about our weekend stay during hot, humid weather was that he put so much "shock" into the already crystal clear, clean swimming pool that it became unusable. For those of you unfamiliar with "shock," it's rarely used in those instances where a pool requires more than a daily dose of chlorine. He did this, he told me, because he was convinced that children were urinating in the pool. They probably were, but who cares!, that's what kids do and chlorine is more than sufficient, especially considering urine is sterile. Without the pool the place is really without any charm unless you like staying alongside a mosquito infested salt bog.

When I returned the key at the end of our stay, I told the proprietor that our family wouldn’t return again because his conduct had not allowed us to enjoy our vacation. He didn't care. He told me that he needed to follow "regulations." Our family, a group of neat and orderly people, booked half of his place for a long-weekend, paid in full in cash, and left the place looking the same when we left as when we arrived, but he didn't even apologize when I told him that we were unhappy with our stay. If you don’t care about the proprietor constantly watching you and telling you what to do, then you shouldn’t have an issue staying at the Cove Ledge Inn and Marina.
