Cap'n Fish's Waterfront Inn

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 28 July 2014

Cap n' Fish is in a great spot - located right on the water and close to everything. You can walk to the center of town over the Footbridge, takes about 5 minutes. Rooms are clean & comfortable, views are amazing. Staff are very nice & friendly. There's a restaurant, the Dockside, onsite which is great. And you can't beat the price either. Definitely recommend.

Walking distance to town, just across the famous foot bridge. This place is quite reasonable to stay considering you are near EVERYTHING. Just park your car and walk everywhere. The rooms are old but clean and comfortable. You can rent a fridge for just $5 a day and there is a coffee maker and AC in the room. They have rooms that have a nice view of the water and a private deck. There is free continental breakfast or right on the dock they have a great breakfast room. The blueberry pancakes (3) are enough for 2 easily. Check it out

Room Tip: Rooms on the 2nd floor provide the best water view, but no elevators only stairs

We recently stayed for one night. The main reason we tried Cap'n Fish's over our usual hotels was the cost and location. How can you beat a waterfront hotel on the harbor for $99 a night. The rooms are what you would expect, very basic but very clean. The location is outstanding. You are a 30 second walk to the foot bridge which will put you right into the center of town. If you are looking to stay in town on a budget, this is the place. They do include breakfast but don't use this to decide to stay here. It was a bowl of apples and a box of supermarket donuts.

Room Tip: You don't have to reserve a waterfront room to enjoy the view. Our room was not and had a nice...

We had a harbor view room which was great. Best room rate for a harbor view. Room was very clean and comfortable. Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Close to the footbridge to walk to town for shopping,very good restaurants and boat trips. Will definitely stay there again.

This is a wonderful place to stay. Can't say enough good about it. The rooms were very clean and big. The staff was very helpful with any questions we had. We rented three rooms and they were all very comfortable. We had three dogs with us and it worked out great. The view was amazing. There is a restaurant on the grounds and food was great. We definitely go back.

We paid for the Effiency Suite...way beyond our expectations! I would recommend this to anyone. It is very large and very clean . We stayed in 52. 2 double beds, and a full kitchen! The couch is also a pull out. The beds were very comfortable and clean. The staff were very friendly, especially the cleaning staff. The view was spectacular. We watched boats come in in the morning, and coming back in the afternoon, with their lobster catches. We took the Seal Boat Cruise...saw tons of seals! Can't wait to go back next year!

friendly staff, clean rooms, nice breakfast café on premises, serves dinner also on weekends. in walking distance to town, and seafood store. no swimming here, but 1/2 mile away is a beautiful free park, for picnicking and swimming. no open flames here. Pay the extra and get a view, its lovely. The efficiency room we saw was huge and came fully stocked and very clean. The hotel had a wonderful waterfront pier with tables and lounge chairs for relaxing. also a secret we learned later on a trolley stops at the hotel and takes you throughout the town for a small fee. Since parking in town is expensive, the trolley is a great idea. I would stay at here again. loved it.

Room Tip: second floor has better view.
