Ranked #3 of 12 Hotels in Boothbay Harbor
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 1 September 2014

We spent three nights in this hotel with a view and balcony overlooking the town of Boothbay Harbor and overlooking the harbor with big boats, sailing vessels and lobster boats. It was a pleasure to wake up each morning and open the drapes to such a spectacular view. I would rate this experience higher except for the fact that this is an older hotel that needs some updating. The walls need insulation to curtail the sound and the bathrooms need modernizing. The location is great with a lobster co-op next door and with in walking distance of town via the foot bridge.

Room Tip: Ask for a harbor view

We stayed at this facility on a recent trip to Boothbay Harbor, Maine. The rooms were clean and spacious. We had a nice view of the harbor. The location was a bit out of the main part of town, a good 15 minute walk into town (we never took our car into town). The breakfast menu was small but adequate and service was good. We did have dinner here one night. The restaurant was packed and the food (we both had cedar plank salmon) was quite good and the portion sizes were generous. To use as a base to visit the area it is more than adequate.

Room Tip: Get the harbor view rooms. They all have balconies that are great to sit and relax and watch the boa...

The room was clean and the hotel itself was fine, and the location was good, but there is one fatal flaw to this hotel--there are windows next to the doors with no curtains (privacy glass, so people can't see in, but light can get in). The light from the parking lot shone through all night and we could not sleep. And then at 5:20am, the sun rose and shone through, and made the room as bright as noon! It was horrible. Upon check out, the front desk asked how my stay was, and I told them about this issue (and suggested the hotel invest in curtains). The staff said nothing, not even an "I'm sorry to hear that." Based on the decent reviews this place receives, I am greatly disappointed in the quality of the inn and our stay. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone, and wish I had spent the extra $50 and stayed down the road at SPI.

Room Tip: Avoid any rooms that may have light from the parking lot!

We booked this hotel last minute and got a waterfront king room. The rooms were large and clean and they all had a great view with a nice balcony and chairs.

The beds were clean (double sheeted) and very comfortable.

It is a bit of a walk to the footbridge but there is a trolley for those who don't want to walk.

I would definitely recommend the hotel but not the restaurant (see separate review).

Stayed here with my cousins for two nights. View of the harbor was outstanding. Sat on our deck and watched the boats go in and out and enjoyed a beautiful sunset. Had breakfast and dinner at the restaurant and found both to be great. Service was wonderful. Really friendly, helpful staff. Room was very clean. The bathroom door opening into the sink area was awkward but was manageable. All the other good things outweighted this one minor detail. Had a great time and would stay again.

Room Tip: Make sure your room faces the harbor.

We randomly found Brown's Wharf Inn on the internet and decided to give it a shot after reading some reviews on tripadvisor. The staff was friendly and helpful, our room was adorable, comfortable and clean and had an amazing view of the harbor. We will be back!

Ahhhhh, so nice to be back. This was our second time staying here, and we loved it as much as the first time. The view is mesmerizing, and calms your soul. The room was neat, cleaned beautifully, and the staff is very friendly. Just a wonderful time in Maine.

Room Tip: Corner rooms have the sweetest view.
