Oyster Hotel Review


Chain hotel with simple and cozy interiors

Holiday Inn Express Mystic is a budget-friendly chain hotel, with a few areas that could do with some freshening up. The lobby is bright and elegant, with light tiled floors, cream-colored walls, and high ceilings. It's a large area, with a carpeted lounge section with sofas, seating areas, and gas fireplace on the one side and the breakfast area on the other side. The breakfast area is a little shabby looking: patterned carpets, faded floral cushioned wooden chairs, and old-fashioned paintings on the walls. The indoor swimming pool is in a bright, well-lit room with surrounding yellow loungers adding more life and color into the space. There's also a small sundeck outside with a few sun loungers and chairs to enjoy nice weather. The budget-conscious tourists who stay here generally enjoy the affordable rooms and a location that’s convenient to Mystic attractions.
