The best thing about Water's Edge is the locations. It's just what the name says it is, right on a hillside overlooking Long Island Sound. It's a sprawling, old-fashioned complex near Mystic, Old Seabrook and Essex Village as well as the sound, the Connecticut River, historic sites and a wildlife refuge. Our unit had a kitchen and living area with...

Beautiful grounds. We were visiting the area to reunite my 98 year old mother with her 90 year old sister. The room we reserved ended up being just a regular motel style room. There were 2 very soft queen beds, two very soft upholstered chairs, a tv and desk. The room was small and difficult for my mother, who walks...

We came here for a week away in November, not the best time of year to vacation on the water in CT but it was still nice and we had a lovely time. The resort is beautiful, the staff very friendly and helpful and the location is excellent. We are timeshare owners at a different resort and traded our time...

My husband and I like to go away 2-3 times a year to relax and catch up on some sleep and then enjoy breakfast in bed. None of this was accomplished at Waters Edge. - The beds were hard and very uncomfortable. - There was loud music until midnight. When I asked about this at check out I was told...

Been coming for years. Things getting a bit shabbier and restaurant not as good. Fear they expanded too much. The Internet connection is a joke and the exercise room could use updating. Not many options on CT shoreline. Still nice views. Cool weather so no comment on pool facilities

Needed re-decoration, not stylish, overpriced. The staff were pleasant enough but nothing could make up for the bad design. There were multiple wedding parties when we visited which made it feel overcrowded.

Grounds are very nice, lively with music at night, pool was very fun, front desk got us a great room. Everything was very nice. The room was actually better then expected and we even got a partial water view as well.

Stayed in townhouse that sleeps 4 comfortably. View of the Long Island sound from almost every window. Beautiful grounds, small beach.. Easy to get to different areas along the coast, visit many of the small towns and enjoy the seafood.Great parks for hiking, and biking not far. Has the best Sunday brunch.

We recently visited here this summer for a wedding. The views are wonderful, and the staff when you arrive (bell/valet) were great. After that it was pretty disappointing. The rooms are no bigger than a Marriott Courtyard room, but less updated and triple the cost. We enjoyed the onsite outlets for food/drink. We were really disappointed in the front desk...

The Water's Edge has been here for a long time, and has grown a lot, but you really can't beat the location. With a beautiful lawn stretching down to the Long Island Sound, it is so lovely. A favorite spot for weddings these days. Established gardens. A nice bar and restaurant (a bit pricey, as is to be expected) and...
