This Hotel is not a Luxury Hotel but good value.Get a room overlooking the harbour sit on your balcony and take in the fantastic view.The best is at sunset with a cold beer from the excellent bar in the hotel.The staff are really nice and helpful.Useful free internet in the lounge.The restaurant is excellent and relaxing with a pianist playing.Try the fish dishes they are really excellent.There is entertainment some evenings in the lounge.Free newspaper is left at your door each morning.There is a footbridge next to the Hotel which takes you into Boothbay,a nice little place with good restaurants should you not want to eat at the Hotel.Many boat trips can be taken from the harbour.We were really sad to leave this place and would certainly like to go back

We just got back from a week on the coast of maine. What a beautiful place. We had a wonderful time except for the Boothday Harbor Inn in Boothday. I had spent hours on the computer trying to find the best places to stay. I called the hotel and requested a harbor view king room. When I received the confirmation in the mail, the price was almost exactly what I had been quoted. When we arrived at the hotel, we were given a "deluxe" double room by the parking lot looking at the footbridge. Hardly what I would call a harbor view. I was very upset but the reception people could care less!!! Too bad, so sad..... They did nothing to help out the situation. The room was sloppy, screen door bent. I was so glad to leave there the next day!
Good news: the Upper Deck Cafe is a wonderful place for breakfast. We ate there several mornings. Kalers is a great place for happy hour 3-5. Dollar drafts and very friendly service!
Several days later we were back in Boothday Harbor and stayed at Brown's Wharf Hotel. Now that is a great place!! We had a room on the 3rd floor facing the harbor. It was beautiful and the service and staff were terrific. Loved the balcony and view. Anxious to go back there anytime!

The rooms are small. No closet. Over priced for what is being offered. Very good restaurant in the hotel. Friendly staff.

This is a midsized lodge-type hotel/motel with two floors. There is an annex which is also two floors but smaller. The two buildings face a mid-sized court which is right on the water. Most rooms either face the harbor or have water views via a shared balcony/perimeter walkway which is roomy and well-kept. The second floor room I stayed in had a view of the footbridge and most of "downtown". Other rooms have a view of the outer harbor. The location is very convenient to restaurants and stores in the harbor. The court area is plainly landscaped but pleasant with good placement of outdoor seating to view the harbor activity. Rooms are soundproofed well against outside noise from across the harbor. Walls are not thin but you can hear thumping of adjoining rooms if the occupant is noisy - not terrible though. Parking is awkward because its necessary to walk a distance around a separating fence but manageable because there is not much need to use the car. Annex second floor is accessed by a steep outer stairway which may be difficult for older adults. Air conditioning is powerful. Room size is medium-small but well furnished. Bathroom is medium sized, standard. Good toiletries provided. Housekeeping appeared very very good and the room was very well cleaned and kept up. Basic cable with a few movie channels. Front desk help is competent and somewhat distracted. Great harbor views. A comfortable place to stay.

I just happened to be browsing through the reviews and although our last stay was in 2004, I have to agree the Boothbay Harbor Inn has changed. It's not the same place as it used to be. They haven't upgraded anything and it's become a "motel" rather than a hotel. We've always looked forward to eating at their wonderful restaurant but we were not pleased the last time we ate there. The hotels in town are offering a lot more and we've decided to give them a try rather than staying at Boothbay Harbor Inn.

Stayed: August 2004

For our first trip to Boothbay Harbor we could not have picked a better place to stay. The veiw from the 2nd floor waterfront room was great. The room was clean with plenty of room for the 2 of us. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Location next to the footbridge, we parked the car the day we arrived and did not move it until the day we left. We did not eat at the Inn so I can not comment on the food.

Within easy walking distance of the pedestrian bridge across the shallow end of the harbor it is also close to "lobster in the rough" restaurants on the INN's side of the bay.


Extremely clean rooms....pleasant staff...we've stayed there many times before and plan to do so again. Can't wait for August!
