“Back to Maine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014

A family reunion of cousins brought me to Brown's Wharf Inn in July. It was a glorious three day stay there. The room was great...view from the porch of boats, seagulls and sunsets! What more could you ask for. Oh, yes, the food and service was exceptionally good. The staff more like family, especially Sandy who made my stay there very comfortable. The Inn is in a great location, far enough away from other places, but close enough to get into town for shopping and fun. Overall, it's a great place to stay and I would definitely go back there for another summer vacation. And the cousins agree!

Room Tip: Rooms with a porch and water view the best.

Stayed at Browns Wharf Inn for two days in July 2014. 3rd floor room.

Very clean and comfortable Inn. Bathroom small but extremely clean!!!!

Spectacular view from balcony.

15 minute walk to foot bridge over to Boothbay. Walking path to foot bridge narrow at times.

Trolley is seasonal and Browns Wharf is a trolley stop. Restaurant on site with ample parking. Staff friendly and grounds are very well kept.

Great place to stay in Boothbay.

Stayed July 2014, travelled as a couple

Stayed at Brown's Wharf Inn for 4 nights. Clean, roomy. Right on the water. We had a corner room this year. Windows all around along with a wrap around deck. There is a resturant on location with great food and drinks. We had Breakfast and dinner. The staff at Brown's is the best, from the grounds people to the staff taking care of you at the front desk. We will be returning to Brown's. There is also an elevator if you choose to stay on 2nd or 3rd. floors, all with water views..

Room Tip: Call early and specify what floor you would like, there is an elevator for 2nd and 3rd floor. All wa...

We have been staying at Browns Wharf in Boothbay Harbor going back over 20 years. In the beginning we had our daughter with us, but now in retirement it is the two of us. We missed some years and when we restarted our annual visits, it was like going home. Genuine caring people who maintain the property very well. Any changes made are done to better serve guests. The elevator was added a few years ago, the televisions were improved and this year two computer stations were added in the lounge/gathering area with privacy partitions for those needing to handle email, etc. The property is immaculate. The marina is always a source of interest waiting to see which mega-yacht may stop over. Guest laundry facilities are available and detergent is provided. The restaurant serves very good food in generous portions. The location is perfect for exploring Boothbay Harbor without having to drive. It is a nice walk to the foot bridge which takes you to the "town" side of the harbor. The nearby lobster wharf is wonderful with fresh lobster being unloaded from boats into the steamers. The boat traffic is another source of interest. I have recommended Browns Wharf to a number of friends who have had similar wonderful vacation experiences. Yes, the bathrooms are small and they always will be, but they, too, are immaculate! Ice machines on every floor. Large parking lot.

Room Tip: Rooms facing the marina can enjoy the boats coming and going, but the afternoon sun can be a problem...

More than basic, great location overlooking the bay with friendly, helpful staff and every amenity you could want at a reasonable price. The view is beautiful, short walk to town for food as well as lobster almost next door unless you opt to eat at the place's own restaurant.

Room Tip: As for a room with a water view.

My wife and I love the Topside Inn in Boothbay Harbor; however, as our daughter is only five, we were required to find another location which allowed younger children. I picked Brown's Wharf Inn based on the reviews on TripAdvisor, but I did not expect it to be as great as it was.

The property is beautifully maintained with flowers. The rooms are immaculate. Not just clean to look at, but they smelled clean. Very rarely have I walked into a hotel room which smelled as clean as our room did. Bathroom was very small, but adequate. Living space was quite large with a huge private deck overlooking the inner harbor. There was a fridge in the room and the free wi-fi was the fastest (I am not kidding) I have ever experienced at any hotel I have ever stayed at.

Also, as it was humid, we used the air conditioner. It was a modern, whisper-quiet device and a departure from the loud, rumbly device you encounter in most hotels. My only small criticism would be that the beds were a little too soft; my wife and I rolled to the center of the bed each night. It was fine for two nights, but a firmer mattress would be ideal.

The hotel is on the quiet side of the harbor. It's a 10-minute scenic walk on a sidewalk to the footbridge. You pass two great restaurants en route (Lobster Dock and Lobster Wharf).

There was a small issue with the room rate when we checked in, but it was resolved immediately and without question by the helpful woman at the front desk. Bonus points for that.

We will return.

Room Tip: The Inner Harbor rooms are the more economical option and the view of the harbor was excellent, quie...
