“Simply Charming! Comfortable, clean and affordable...”
Reviewed 19 February 2012

Midtown Motel is simply charming - a beautifully well-kept 50s retro-look accommodation, with pretty little touches like the flower pots and hanging basket, which really make it special. The rooms are just the right size to be comfortable and affordable, and and Tim the owner is just lovely - helpful and accommodating, and chatty, just to the right degree. It's a few minutes walk from all shops and the harbour, so you can just leave your car at Midtown while you go sightseeing. We sometimes come over from England on a bit of a budget to visit friends all along the East Coast, and we look forward to staying at Midtown in the delightful Boothbay Harbour as a highlight of our journey.

Room Tip: Just discuss with Tim - he's so helpful, he'll make sure you get a room suited to your needs...

This basic "50's" motel is clean, conveniently located, and a very good value. But what sets it apart is the gracious friendliness of the proprietor, Mr. Lewis. I was a bit dazed upon arrival, and he promptly set us at ease with his accommodating demeanor, helpful suggestions for dining, and genuine friendliness.

The owner of the Mid-Town Motel was very pleasant and helpful, suggesting restaurants and local attractions. The motel is 1950 style, and it seemed that the mattresses haven't been changed since then. The bathrooms are very small and had a musty smell, but were clean. If you are just staying a couple of days, this motel would be okay, but I couldn't last more than that. The location is nice, just a couple of blocks from the bay and small shopping area.

Well like everyone else has noted the owner is very friendly. Rooms were clean, bathrooms small. A few minutes walking distance to the center of Boothbay. I would stay again. A no frills motel.

The owner is incredibly friendly and helpful. Location on top of a hill above the town makes for a quiet place to relax on the porch chairs. Very old-fashioned decor, but we thought it was delightful.

We had to cancel our reservations six hours before arrival and when phoning the owner, Timothy Lewis, I was met with the kindest approach and offered a full refund. This is not always the case.

We are planning on a trip to Boothbay again and will definitely frequent this motel.

A spur of the moment decision to go to Boothbay Harbor had me checking all the typical travel sites for accomocations and to compare prices. After findinging nothing less than $100 ( most were closer to $130. and up) after Labor Day we decided to wing it and see what we could find on our own. Got off the waterfront & went up the hill just past the Boothbay Fire Dept & saw the Mid-town Motel which advertised itself as a classic 50's motel. It was perfect at $75. ($85 in season I believe) offering 2 bars of soap, a spotless bathroom and pine paneled small room with bureau, 2 night stands, chair & tv. We rarely spend much time in the room and were able to enjoy the 3 minute walk down to the shopping & restaurants, marinas & boat tours and all the wonderful shopping that Boothbay has to offer. If you don't need fluff & frills but enjoy talking to a knowledgeable host with great recommendations then you would enjoy the Mid-town and the savings that go with it.
