By no means is this a luxury hotel. However, the rooms are comfortable and spacious. The décor is a little ramshackle and the entire place is run in a family style of way (not big corporate). It appeared as if the management was a Russian family. They seemed very eager to please however not too knowledgeable about the area. There's... More

The Inn is located approximately 2 miles from downtown. It's an older motel but refurbished with great view of the lake. The rooms are small without a lot of amenities, ie couch and side chairs, but clean and adequate. The staff is very nice and the building and grounds are well kept. The pool is small but the lake is... More

Excellent place to stay with friendly staff. The room was super clean and comfortable. Great views from our deck. Pool area was kept very clean with lots of chairs around the salt water pool. Chances to go out in canoes and to fish as well. We were only 5 min from the town. We will most definitely stay there again.

We stayed here on July 1 and were impressed by the friendliness of the staff and the cleanliness of the room we had and the spic and span grounds. The setting is lovely with views of the lake. We even had our own private balcony. A comfortable, quiet night's sleep with excellent coffee, cranberry muffins and poppy seed cake in... More

Everything looked exactly as the website pictures. We loved the peace and quiet and being only 1 mile from the harbor. We took a row boat out a couple of times and even caught a large mouth bass. It was nice to have coffee and tea available all day and the muffins and fruit in the mornings were a nice... More

This family-run hotel didn't look like anything fancy from the website, but the online reviews and the great room rates made it the best option for me, my husband and our 2 girls, aged 11 and 13. Larissa gave us a great room in the small new wing, and we had plenty of space for our 2 nights. The room... More

Accommodating staff; quiet area located two miles from downtown. Rooms are "tired" and could use update. View is terrific facing lake. Far from fancy but good enough for a few days. Coffee and muffins for breakfast. Wi-fi available.

My wife and I spent 5 nights at this motel while celebrating our 40th wedding anniversary and visiting her sister in Southport, ME. The location was fine, a couple of miles from downtown Boothbay Harbor, but between BBH and Southport. It was a pretty good hike to downtown, which meant driving, and the parking in BBH is hard to find... More

Dear Guest, Thank you for staying with us. When you were making a reservation Larissa highly recommended not to take Standard room for your 40th anniversary since this is economy size room and does not have private balcony. We had much better units available and special events like you had we have 3 Executive King rooms. They are new and... More

This motel is the kind where you park in front of your room, making luggage handling easy. Our room was in good condition, queen sized bed, with a table and chairs out the door that faces the lake. We had a good view and enjoyed sitting there, with our breakfast coffee, muffins, and other pastry offered in the office each... More
