“Great location, rates and the friendliest staff!”
Reviewed 26 June 2011

I return to this beautiful area of Maine every few years and love staying at Cap'n Fish's! The location is perfect - you can park your car and walk the footbridge to shop or browse in the center of town. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, and the staff could not be more pleasant, helpful and knowledgeable. You won't find a more spectacular view anywhere in the area! From sunrise to sunset, you can sit at the dock or on the deck and get lost in the beauty of the harbor, or just relax reading a book while enjoying the peaceful surroundings. Make time for a whale watch or boat tour - very entertaining, informative and fun!. You can even get a discount purchasing your tickets at the front desk. I've been here in the early spring, peak of summer and in the fall and it's always magical! All at reasonable rates with additional perks like free wi-fi, complimentary continental breakfast and coffee and tea available all day.

Was in Boothbay for a family function. Loved the location, great view of the harbor and shops in town. Parking in Boothbay is tough! Stay here and walk across the short foot bridge to shops, resturants and the like. Staff was awesome! Polite and informative about the area. We enjoyed it so much we plan on another trip back just to kick back and relax. Resturant on the property has great home cooked food. Give this place a try! Clean comfortable and quiet.
Some of the other reviews complaining about noise and the view are unwarranted. I found for the money this was a great deal. I havent found a hotel yet that is perfect in all respects.

We have been going to Capt. Fish's for the last 13 years and just love the location. The staff are all very friendly. The rooms are always clean. It is worth it to book the waterfront room just for the view! This is not a fancy resort by any means, but you always feel welcome, comfortable and at home. That's why we come back every year!

We have traveled to this port every Sept. for the past 14 years, and have stayed at Captn Fishes for the past 9 or 10 years. We love it here. Sept. is quiet and not so much tourism/crowds this time of year. The rooms are a little dated, but they're clean and in walking distance to lobster, shops, ice cream etc. Looking forward to going there again this year!!

I never knew about this site before and its a good idea. I'd like to give the Cap'n Fish inn a big atta boy. We have stayed at this place many times, this time it was for four nights and three days. We have found that this inn is very people oriented and accommodating. Starting at the coffee bar to the staff that work there. The staff is there for your every wish. Accommodations were well worth the price we paid for being right on the water and close to all activities. The whale watching tour is a high light that needs to be experinced. The pilot, Captain John Fish, greeted everyone coming aboard and kept us informed of everything. Very funny fellow.. My family and I are planning next years trip, which includes the inn and sight seeing up the coast.

Our family travels quite a bit so we've had lots of hotel experiences. Our most pleasant stays are at the Cap’n Fish’s Waterfront Inn in Boothbay Harbor. For us it is the perfect romantic get- away. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Each employee we meet seems to enjoy working there which is a reflection on its management. The rooms are clean and spacious . The rates are quite reasonable even in peak season.
The view of the harbor is spectacular. You need to see it for yourself. Each morning before venturing out for the day, we enjoy our breakfast in the coffee shop/restaurant. From here you also have a breathtaking view of the harbor and its surroundings.
The Inn is in short walking distance to great shopping, boat trips, site seeing and wonderful restaurants. We return year after year and will continue to come here. We have recommended the Inn to many family members and friends and have received very positive feedback. There is something special about a family-owned and run business. That special feeling you will definitely experience here.
