Older motel undergoing room renovations. Out of the way location but really the only motel or hotel actually on the water in the Groton/Mystic area, which makes it worth it. Peaceful way to end your day, either sitting on the balcony or out on the dock watching boat traffic on a busy River, with the occasional submarine passing in or out. Clean room, pleasant manager. Highly recommended. About a 15 minute drive to Mystic or the aquarium.
