“Clean, friendly staff, great location”
Reviewed 15 October 2012

My husband and I just spent 2 nights here. Reasonable rates, clean, well mantained.
Across the harbor from downtown, so you have great views of the boats and buildings. Very pretty spot. Rooms are not huge, but they were fine. A short walk over the footbridge to downtown. The footbridge is a nice attraction! We would definately stay here again!

we werent right on the harbor but still had a great view. easy walking distance to town. room was clean and good size. continental breakfast was not anything more than coffee, OJ and donuts, so plan on eating somewhere else.

Room Tip: good view in a side room without having to pay a lot more

Office help is wonderful and helpful. If you stay, ask for advice on restaurants. sites, etc. The location is easy walking distance to restaurants via the footbridge and is not far from the Coastal Botanical gardens. Free Wi-Fi which is always appreciated. Could use a larger TV screen in the room. We have already made plans to return and stay here.

We found this Inn to be clean, great location, friendly with very helpful people. The views were beautiful, and sunsets unbelievable. Would recommend the Inn as a great experience for Maine travelers.

Room Tip: Try and get a view of the bay.

we stayed here for three nights in an efficiency unit. I love to cook and it was much cheaper to buy seafood and cook myself. With the views we had it was better than any of the restaurants. The beds were very comfortable and room was nice and roomy with a couch. Very clean as well. two doors down is the Atlantic Lobster company that you can buy lobster, crab and other seafood directly. I bought some lobster for $30 and in it were 4 tail meat, lots of claws and other body meat. I made our own lobster rolls! you can get about 4 for 1 lb. of meat. Much cheaper than the Lobster dock at $15 each for a tiny portion.

My husband and I stayed here from 9/12/12 - 9/17/12. We had a waterfront room (#1) that was amazing. Sunshine, CLEAN (amazingly so), quiet, peaceful. The staff was wonderful. I am usually an insomniac but slept like a baby. The coffeemaker was wonderful to have as was the mini fridge. The location was prime. I had no complaints at all. WiFi worked great, AC was good (though our last two mornings were a bit nippy and we didn't need it). Met some absolutely wonderful visitors from other states who were a blast, and we enjoyed our own little "happy hours"on the deck with five other couples who were in the surrounding rooms, watching the sunset. We were so impressed that as we were checking out, I made our reservation for next year! Staying there was the respite we needed from fast paced Baltimore/Washington D.C. See you next year ladies!

Room Tip: Room #1 - great view, double and single bed. Coffee maker, mini fridge. Amazing sunsets from our r...

We were in Boothbay for a wedding on a misty and cloudy weekend--our room at Cap'n Fish's was clean and inviting--the basics that we needed to warm up before and after our festivities. We were greeted with welcoming smiles, and the everpresent coffee and tea service was most appreciated. The view onto the harbor made us understand again why Maine is such a desirable destination.
