Nice location, nice facade, nice people.
Needs refurbishment of plumbing, fixtures, rugs and wallpaper. Looks shabby.

If you're looking for a charming look and a classic New England location, the Lighthouse Inn Resort is a good. The dark, Victorian interior makes it look like a set for a creepy movie, but that is also part of its charm. Our experience with the bathroom fixtures and appointments was less than perfect and don't use the shampoo they provide you with, its called Coastal Breeze or something like that and it makes you smell like a wet dog! We also discovered that we were not impressed with sleep number beds, but if they are your thing. more

Beautiful grounds, large spacious rooms very swanky.
The private beach was not very appealing.

The Lighthouse Inn was fantastic. A nice little mansion turned into a hotel, in a quiter part of town just a block from a private beach. The only thing bad about the beach was that the inn supplied chairs which they did not at the beach, and at the beach it seems the hotel patrons were treated as second class compared to beach members it was a little off putting so we left the beach. Also there seemed to be no air conditioning in the hallways making travel to your room a little irritating. There was also no clear enterance/chek in are, we entered a door that from the outside would have appeared to belong to the restaurant attached to the hotel. Other than that everything was fantastic. DVD player in the room was a bonus as we had brought some DVDs with us. I would definitely recommend this hotel to others. more

The hotel staff was very helpful and polite. The hotel has charm and character!!
Lack of parking during the evening.

The hotel is in an excellent location. Charming back roads with spectacular views of the sound. The hotel had a continental breakfast that was not the best but they were kind enough to point out a local eatery called the Broken Yoke. Our stay was solidified by our experience at the Broken Yoke. The locals were so friendly and the food was great. Our thanks to the hotel and the staff for pointing us in the right direction. Thanks for a great stay! more

Rooms were 8'x10' and had only 1 double bed1

The hotel itself was were you are getting your 3 star rating! We (2couples) stayed in the (carrige house)-which was nothibg but a large carrige house converted into a hotel. The heat was controled by the owners(hot water baseboard)1 room was 70 degrees and the other was 55degrees. I have regestered a complaint with your people when we returned from this experence!

The views and atmosphere were WONDERFUL!
The directions were not easy to follow and the street signs are missing on a lot of the streets

The Lighthouse Inn and Resort was a wonderful place to say and I believe that it would be even more delightful in the summer time. The rooms were very clean and the main house of the resort was gorgeous. The beach and Long Island Sound provide wonderful views and the surrounding community could fit in a small New England town perfectly. I would definitely stay here again.

very very nice. great staff, amazingly appointed rooms.
is a long, confusing drive from the highway.

an old mansion, converted into a hotel.
feels very 19th century; small but very pretty
rooms, period furniture, elegant setting.
very friendly and kind staff. a bit of a long
drive from 95, with lots of turns and all 25mph,
but it's worth the drive for the feeling of the

The location was convenient, the view was absolutely amazing!
The night time staff was not as pleasant as I would have expected.

Incredible Views! Nice, quiet location.
Somewhat musty, mildew smelling. Needs to be updated.

Loved the way off highway location. Incredible views of Sound and easy walking access to private beach. Great hotel with lots of interesting history. Within 20-30 minutes of the casinos and Mystic. Great break from the cookie-cutter hotel stay! Only negative is that the hotel is just about due for an interior makeover. Some of the areas had musty/mildew odors. Overall, good value. more
