The Old Lyme Inn accomodate our rambunctious family over the weekend — and the friendly, small staff did everything possible to ensure that we enjoyed our stay. We found there to be a nice mix of old and new: a 19th century building but with blazing fast wifi, antique beds but electric fire places and modern thermostats, charming country decor...

We were gathering for an important family occasion and a friend had offered to let us stay in her empty home. But I thought it would be nice to be able to enjoy being in Old Lyme, and stay in a lovely Inn. It was the right choice-- so lovely and relaxing and worth it! Julie at the front desk...

I was expecting an old smelly hotel. You know the type. I was pleasantly surprised! We had a recently renovated room and it was fantastic! I loved the fireplace in the room. I highly recommend that the hotel take new brightly lit photos of the rooms so that customers can see how nice the rooms are.

I arrived at the hotel a little after 6:30 p.m. and everything was dark and locked. I went to the main entrance and the sign said that they were closed but listed a number to call. When I called the number, a woman answered a little irritated blaming me for being late and that she would get there in 25...

Staff was very friendly. The room was pleasant and spacious. The location was convenient for walking. Food was very good. We visited the Florence museum across the street, the Jazz event and did a walking tour. All were very worthwhile.

Decided to go to the jazz show at The Side Door about 2h before the show. Outstanding hospitality--a quick check into the room and then indoor walk to the show. Great venue for a show--intimate with great acoustics. Then another short indoor walk to a great night sleep in a spacious room with a fireplace. Delicious brunch the next day....

Our daughter was married at the Old Lyme in recently. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this inn and their owners and staff. The event coordinator there, Julie, made our daughter and son-in-laws dreams for a small and intimate wedding a reality. She attended to every detail and went above and beyond to make the day a most special...

We were here for a wedding for a Friday and sat night stay. Our shower was completely broken, would only give out scalding hot water or ice cold and the tub wouldn't drain. No toiletries in the room. No tv or clock in the room. The Wi-Fi is shotty. No hangers in the closet and The robes physically look disgusting....

Dear Natasha, In response to your review I feel compelled to offer our side. When you reported your shower not functioning correctly we notified our maintenance person who acquired the correct part and had it repaired in under an hour maybe even closer to 1/2 an hour. I'd say that is not bad given it was a Saturday morning. Any...
