We reserved our room for three nights months before our trip. Looked forward to the harbor view and the whale watch tour. We were not disappointed. Our accommodation was well located with good view of the harbor, clean, and had a quick and easy access to dog walking facility off the porch. The rooms are not huge, but the two... More

Check in was real easy and the staff very helpful. Our room was clean and comfortable with nothing out of order. The view of the Harbor is spectacular. A short walk via the footbridge puts you in "Downtown" Boothbay Harbor for shop's and eats. I will stay there again when I return back to Boothbay.

I found many hotels in the Boothbay Harbor area with rooms in the $150 range and I didn't want to spend that much. Based on positive reviews here, I went with Cap'n Fish and am very happy with my choice. For $99, we stayed in a clean room with a decent bed and nice bathroom that had a great shower.... More

I have nothing but compliments for Cap'n Fish's Waterfront Inn. As indicated in the title, it is clean, comfortable and very convenient to everything in BoothBay Harbor via the Footbridge. Most of the rooms have great views of the harbor. The staff are personable and extremely helpful. While I did not try the on-premise Dockside Grill, I heard good things... More

Beautiful harbor view from most room.......some views better than others but management works to book you into the best view available at the time. We have always found that the attitude of the front desk person on arrival greatly influences our expectations when we are in a new area for the first time. These people were great and still enthusiastic... More

We stayed in this hotel for 3 nights. This is a three-building hotel, all three buildings located in such a way that they face the water to the max. We had a nice room on the corner of the 2nd floor, which gave us a nice terrace to sit and relax while overlooking Boothbay Harbor. Very friendly staff, and most... More

We absolutely enjoyed our stay at Cap'n Fish's. The room was very clean and comfortable. The Dockside Grill on the premise is quite good for breakfast. Great lobster omelet. Close to the footbridge to the town. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Would definitely stay there again.

We absolutely loved our stay at Capt Fish's Waterfront Inn! We had a large deck outside our room and enjoyed sitting out looking at the sailboats, ships, and lobster boats in the harbor. We also liked watching the town across the water. We could walk across the footbridge to shopping, restaurants, and the dock to get on our whale watching... More

The weather improved just before labor day so we made a trip we had been thinking of to booth bay harbor. I contacted several motels in the area but somehow Capn Fish's seemed the right fit. The most expensive room facing the water was $130 and we booked it. We were not expecting much but were very pleased. Rooms a... More

Ok, this place is basically a no frill getaway for the economy minded person. No mints on the pillow or fancy amenities, just a simple and very cheap accommodation. That said, it is also clean, staffed with friendly people and located conveniently to the Harbor. I would definitely stay here again.
