Pros: very friendly innkeeper and breakfast staff Cons: vehicle traffic noise outside all night long, somewhat dated decor I think that, for us, The Thistle Inn suffered in comparison to the place we stayed the nights before - The Berry Manor Inn. Nothing was wrong with the Thistle, there just wasn't any wow factor. At least they were just a...

Very much enjoyed the room and the history of the Inn.The food was incredible!!! Must have the Lazy Lobster and Coconut Ice Cream. Breakfast is excellent and employees are attentive to guests. Patio lights, music and bar outside add a nice atmosphere with friends. Went Sailing Yesterday and kayaking today. Got out before the storms. I look forward to going...

We loved our stay at the Thistle Inn in Boothbay Harbor. The staff was very accommodating and stayed up late for us, since we weren't going to be able to make it during normal check in hours. The room was on the third floor and the stairs were steep, shallow, and a killer thigh work out, but that we didn't...

This is a lovely inn, located right in the heart of Boothbay Harbor. We stayed in the Appledore Room. It was lovely -- the bed was very comfortable, and the room included a sitting area separated from the bed area by a vintage closet. The room is on the top floor of the three-story building, which means the ceilings are...

We were so pleased with our experience at Thistle Inn. Our room was on the first floor and very convenient.The manger and owner made our experience exceptional.They treated us like friends not guests. Do not pass up a dinner on their patio. At first you may think it noisy but they play such good dinner music you aren't bothered by...

My girlfriend and I just stayed here, in the Appledore room, for 4 nights. The room was fantastic, spacious, and had everything we could ask for. Being on the 3rd floor you'd think it'd be hot in early July, but we were perfectly comfortable with the A/C and fan. Every day Jessica would ask what we'd prefer for breakfast the...

Having read the reviews on trip advisor we were looking forward to our stay at the Thistle inn, although when i booked our 2 night stay the alarm bells should of rung when 100% deposit was taken even though it was 5 months before our stay.

We are very sorry that you did not enjoy your stay with us. We try to give our guests options for breakfast and will always accommodate requests, like simple toast and blueberry jam, which I was happy to provide you. We do have cereal available (it was on the table by the coffee, tea and juice selection). We understand that...

Arrived thirsty and hungry and the Dory Pub was an oasis in the desert. Great libations poured by the owner himself, Max, and the food was really fresh and a tasty experience with our lobster spring rolls and watercress salad. Room was very nice and had been updated, but still with a Sea Captain aura. Breakfast was a treasure, homemade...
