“Disappointed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 June 2011

You have a wonderful view and very friendly warm staff - but the rooms, although clean - were very shabby. The bath did not empty, the water turned cold for no reason and the taps would not turn off. It is a shame as you have a wonderful location.

You cannot beat the location, right on the water with beautiful views and in walking distance from much that Boothbay Harbor has to offer. The facility is old and in much need of renovation. One of our two rooms was musty, however we were there very early in the season. WiFi only available in the lobby and bar, not in the rooms. The breakfast included was a very minimal offering. We did find the staff very friendly and helpful.

We stayed here for our anniversary. The view was excellent, the staff were very couteous, and the valet parking was a plus. The rooms are Spartan, but the view makes up for it. The rooms are clean and sufficient. However, if you are looking for some luxury, try some place else. That said, I would stay there again, but would definitely shop the many B&B's in Boothbay Harbor for comparable rates.

We pulled into Boothbay Harbor without reservations on a Thursday night in August and saw the vacancy sign at Fisherman's Wharf. There were three rooms left and we got a discounted rate of $150 for a room on the third (top) floor. The view from our room of the sunset on the harbor was fantastic. But that was about the only saving grace. The room itself was in sad condition. I appeared nothing had been updated since the seventies, even the towels. I can understand dated bathroom fixtures, but frayed towels? I have better in my rag basket at home. But once the suspect-looking bedspread was removed, the bed was comfortable enough and we got a good night's sleep. And we did wake up to that view.

After reading reviews both good and bad, we decided to book Fisherman's Wharf Inn for our two night stay in Boothbay Harbor based on its location, We were not disappointed! It perfectly located in the heart of the harbor with fantastic views both from our room and the dinning room. This is not a upscale hotel. The carpet and furnitures are old. The towels are the cheapest ones, But I can not complain about the cleanness,
The free breakfast is basic continental. The service is very good. We really enjouyed morning harbor view, even during the rainning morning.
The velet parking is really convenient, There was a wedding reception when we arrived, the velet parking really helped.
The wireless, which we used to look for restaurants for dinner, only worked in the lobby.

During the middle of June six of us (all couples) drove into Boothbay Harbor without reservations. We stopped at the visitor's center and viola - the lady asked us what our budget was (less than $100/night) and viola she called Fisherman's Wharf to reserve our bayview roooms. Within a few moments we arrived at the inn and checked in quickly. Our rooms were on the 2nd floor and had balconies overlooking the bay and part of the town. This hotel was a pleasant surprise.

Let me agree with some of the previous guests' reviews that the rooms are dated, with not so new furnishings, old carpets, floors were uneven, and there was a slight room odor. HOWEVER, for the price we paid at $95/night we were extremely pleased with our location, large size of the rooms, bayview balconies, and steps to everything you would want to do in Boothbay Harbor. There is a trade off between quality location and room quality when the room is acceptable. Boothbay Harbor had so much to offer that we only needed a place to sleep.

The valet car service of only $2 was a plus. The valet staff were very helpful and friendly letting us get into our car whenever we wanted to store stuff or get out what we may have forgot. Parking is very limited in Boothbay Harbor so we were happy with the arrangement.

I attended a wedding hosted at the Fisherman's Wharf Inn, and I was truly thrilled by the quality of service and special attention the guests received. The hotel accommodated our large group with ease, and the staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and demonstrated a real interest in ensuring our needs and expectations were met. The food (catered by their onsite restaurant) was superb, and the views were unbeatable- the hotel had a great ambiance and really captured New England. The rooms were clean and comfortable, and everything was in working order. I heard nothing but positive comments from other guests- it was a real pleasure to be so well treated, and the staff proved to be capable enough that even the bride and groom were comfortable letting go of the details and having a great time. This is a great hotel in terms of location and New England charm- we are already looking forward to our next visit.
