Mid-Town Motel
Ranked #11 of 12 Hotels in Boothbay Harbor
Reviewed 30 June 2013

Highly recommend this well located, clean and neat, sweet place in Boothbay. Very basic but fine service from Tim Lewis who is the epitome of helpful to out of town travelers with excellent recommendations on what to do, where to go etc. Very suitable for all ages...my mother, teenaged son and I all enjoyed the art galleries, the people, the ships in the harbor. There is a lot to do in the town and the motel is a fine and comfortable base. The beds were just right and it is a extremely well maintained property.

Simple, but perfect: The original flair of the Fifties has been marvellously kept in this small hideaway in the center of Boothbay Harbor within walking distance to the Harbor. The motel-owner is a lovely man and had always a good advice for sightseeing and restaurants in the area. The rooms were quite small and without air-conditioning and coffeemaker, but this didn't bother us and was in accordance with the original flair. We couldn't imagine a more charming place for our stay, and furthermore it seemed to be the Motel with the best price in town!

This is the perfect place for a clean, basic, no-frills motel at an excellent rate.
Tim Lewis, the owner, is extremely helpful and friendly.
The location is excellent--no need to use your car if you plan to stay in the "city" part of Boothbay Harbor--everything is within walking distance.

My family needed only a one night (Saturday, 9/1/12) of Labor Day weekend. Midtown was the only Boothbay Harbor site that would accommodate us. The motel is exactly as advertised--50's classic, no wi-fi, no AC--and it was great. Tim, the owner was friendly and helpful. He even let us leave our car on site AFTER we checked out. It was less than a 2 block walk to the center of town. The room was small but immaculate! If you're looking for a 5 star luxury hotel, don't stay here. But if you want to take a trip back in time and enjoy the simpler things you must stay at this motel!!

Room Tip: I think there is only 12 rooms or so, any of which are good with parking right in front of your room...

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.
