Overall a fantastic stay. The rooms are very clean, although a bit dated. The staff is fantastic, and they are very pet friendly. Wonderful harbor views and close to everything. Would stay again without hesitation.

We have stayed here 3 times. The rooms are very clean and staff are friendly. It could use some updating but the rate is very reasonable. The hotel is right on the harbor with great views. You can walk over the footbridge to the restaurants and shops; quick walk.

It was a short walk (10 minutes) from Cap'n Fish to town via a foot bridge. Lot's of shops, restaurants and pubs in town. We had a nice room with beautiful views of the harbor. We enjoyed our stay and would stay at this hotel again.

We just spent a few days back at Cap'n Fishs for Windjammer days. Plenty of places to sit out and enjoy the views of the harbor and watch the boats. Rooms were comfortable and clean. It was also nice to come back after being out for a few hours in the morning to have them cleaned and not waiting all... More

The hotel is a dated and needs a little more than the new paint the exterior appears to have received in the last year or so. Maybe because we were there early in the season, but the room was a little musty. The sprinkler head caps were loose and you could see the pipes coming out of the wall. It... More

Stayed 6/15. Bottom Line: Spectacular harbor views, decent room, good value, good restaurant nearby. We stumbled onto Captain Fish's Inn after checking prices at a nearby hotel with rooms over $200. We could have gotten a standard room in this multi-building complex a bit cheaper, but for a few dollars more upgraded to a $140/night corner room on the second... More

Clean and comfortable rooms. Water views. Affordable even during peak season. Rooms as low as $99 ($79 during off season). Pet friendly rooms have a dog run right outside door. Dog run grounds are immaculate. The Lobster Dock restaurant is next door. All the dining, shopping, and sightseeing of BBH is just a short walk across the Footbridge. Inn also... More

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.
