Nice clean room, easy parking next to room. Great view of the harbor. Easy walking distance to the footbridge to go to eat and shop. The tolley stops near the property. Breakfast served each morning donuts, cereal toast coffee and OJ.

Had a great trip here with my family of 4. Decor is dated but part of the charm! Love that it is literally built on the pier so you are out and over the water with great views. You are literally feet away from anything and everything you want to do in Boothbay. We only used our car to travel... More

I was lucky to get a last minute reservation at Cap'n Fish's Waterfront Inn. The location was great -- waking up to seagull calls, fishing boat departures & sunny skies. My room was small, but comfortable & clean. There were so many interesting things to see & do in Boothbay Harbor; I prefer it to Martha's Vineyard. The manager suggested... More

Cap'n Fish's Waterfront Inn is a great place to stay. Located right on the bay of Boothbay Harbor, the rooms are comfortable, clean and centrally located. The friendly, cheerful staff is always ready to assist you for arranging boat tours or recommending nearby places to dine. Access to a foot bridge into the center of the village is only a... More

This hotel is very clean, with good parking, and great views of the harbor at a reasonable price. You get a discount at their restaurant as a guest and a discount on the whale watching and other tours the same company operate in Boothbay Harbor, continental breakfast included in the room rate served in the lobby. The rooms however are... More

Our room was very nice, no complaints whatsoever. We had a second floor room (no elevator that I know of). We were there for two nights and both evenings a large busload arrived and unloaded passengers who checked in. The next morning the same group departed about 7:00am with hardly any noise whatsoever. There were a couple of chairs outside... More

Would thoroughly recommend. Stayed in harbour view room. Comfortable room. Great views across the beautiful harbour. Couldn't go whale watching due to the weather but did go for short boat trip around harbour which was very enjoyable. Only downside WIFI doesn't work.

We really enjoyed our stay, but did find the continental breakfast really lacking. Our handicap room was great, ground level, parking right in front, bay view and next to restaurant. The property and our room was very clean and right on the bay. If stairs are an issue this property could be an issue as the first floor is also... More

We spent three days in Boothbay Harbor and stayed at Cap'n Fish's. First of all, how can you resist such a great name??? This was an old fashioned motel but was clean and well furnished and the location is amazing!!!! It has an incredible view of the harbor and is very well located within easy walking distance to downtown. There... More
