“There is some real value here”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 September 2013

Ok, this place is basically a no frill getaway for the economy minded person. No mints on the pillow or fancy amenities, just a simple and very cheap accommodation. That said, it is also clean, staffed with friendly people and located conveniently to the Harbor. I would definitely stay here again.

The inn was nice. Rooms are small, but livable. When the A/C broke down in our room, they were right there to fix it with no problem and apologized for the situation. Breakfast was good for children. Two different kinds of cereal, donuts and they did have coffee and tea. The staff was very nice and accommodating.

Room Tip: Choose room with Harbor View or Waterfront view.

This hotel is in a great location next to the walking bridge which brings you into the town. The hotel itself is older however, you are in a sea town (small village) so your not going to find upscale hotel chains. If your looking for the Ritz Carlton you won't find it here. You get what you pay for. However, what makes this such a nice place to stay is the staff. The woman who handled my reservation and who had met me upon my arrival was delightful and informative. This hotel is also pet friendly which is a plus for me.

We happened on Cap'n Fish's for a last minute/first time trip to Boothbay Harbor, ME. What luck! Thanks to the TA reviews, I chose this inn and it served its purpose beautifully. We had a good clean room with a harbor view, (once you went out on the deck). It was quiet there, the people in the front office couldn't have been friendlier, the beds were comfortable, the price totally reasonable,and the location was perfect for our needs. We were able to walk across the footbridge into the town of BBH, and yet get away from the crowds when we had enough. We chose 2 restaurants for dinner; one between Cap'n Fish's and Brown's, the Boothbay Harbor Lobster Wharf, our first night and enjoyed a fabulous lobster dinner. The next night we walked the other way, to the Lobster Dock, and had an okay fisherman's platter. Should have stuck to lobster. Both restaurants had seating overlooking the harbor, outdoors, so we aren't complaining! We also had breakfast first at The Bridge, in town (it was okay) and then right at the Dockside Grill on the Capn Fish's Inn premises. I prefer the Dockside, cause we sat right on the harbor again.(love sitting on the harbor!) We also brought and made our own coffee in the room (no keurig here, but a real coffee pot...yes!!) and brought it to accompany our fine blueberry pancake breakfast at Dockside. On the way up to Boothbay, we stopped in Georgetown at 5 Islands Lobster for lobster roll sandwiches. Man o man yumness. We took a lot of typically Maine, fabulous BRLT hikes- but-didn't explore the Botanical Gardens. Guess we'll just have to return to Boothbay, and Cap'n Fish's will be our inn of choice!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view!

Small rooms, but very clean and a very helpful staff. A harbor view at a very affordable price.
would definitely recommend and would stay there again. A short walk to the footbridge which leads to the busy side of the harbor for shopping and boat trips and restaurants..

Room Tip: Ask for a harbor view room and on the lower floor if you do want to climb stairs.

What a great value for Boothbay Harbor! The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating. We booked the day we arrived in BBH after calling around to many hotels. The room was great and even though they said it wasn't a harbor view, we had a beautiful view of the harbor out our front door. Will stay again.

We literally started calling motels as were driving into town and Cap'n's had one room left. Staff was very friendly, accommodated the three of us, recommended restaurants etc. Room reminded me of the motels I visited as a child. Nothing fancy, but clean and comfortable.

Room Tip: The motel is on the harbor so many have a fantastic view.
