We got a waterfront room with two big windows. Could see the entire harbor. Very picturesque! At night can see the center of booth bay all lit up. Just a short walk over the footbridge and your there. Turn the corner out of our room and there was a large deck with table chairs The room was very clean, beds were comfortable and bathroom was perfect. Located next to a nice breakfast place you can eat on the deck outside. Room had ironing board and iron so I didn't have to walk around wrinkled the whole trip. Very enjoyable place to stay. Room had frig. and coffee maker, blow dryer, alarm clock, phone.

This older motel has fairly small rooms, but the place was very clean. There was a hairdryer in the bathroom, along with an iron and ironing board in the room. No refrigerator. However, the location was just perfect. The place is on the water and most rooms have some sort of waterfront view. The bridge to walk into town is about a 5 minute walk, and there are lobster restaurants just down the street in both directions. We sat out on the deck attached to the motel and watched the 4th of July fireworks that went off on a barge out in the water. You can also just sit there and watch the boats go by. There is a small, free continental breakfast (cereal and donuts) or you can buy breakfast (or lunch) at the little restaurant right there on the water. Also, FYI, children 12 and older count as adults and are charged an extra $10 each. In addition, we did Capn Fish’s Puffin trip, which was awesome! You can buy tickets in the office.

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!
