Brown's wharf is a family business. There are at least three generations of the family who are on the staff and we have come to know them well. We have used BW annually for many years on our boating trips to and returning from Maine. Their small marina, although largely filled with local boats, always had a spot for us.... More

Get a room facing the harbor. I could have sat on the balcony watching the boats and sunset for hours. The attached restaurant was very good, and so convenient. My only criticism would be that the bathroom was VERY small. However, the positives far outweighed that one negative.

On the water, watch the lobster boats, sail boats and enjoy good food all on the water. Trolley takes you into town. Parking is limited in town during peak time so leave the car parked. Location is on the quiet side of the bay. If you want action book on the opposite side of the bay. Take a drive along... More

We stayed in mid September 2014 in a waterfront room. The views of the harbor were unsurpassed. There are elevators for your use. There are no bellhops, so you will have to move your own luggage. The room was spacious and clean. We would definitely stay here again.

This hotel is not the newest in Boothbay Harbor, but it is very nice and very clean. The staff is extremely helpful. Every room has a balcony overlooking the water. Ours overlooked a small inlet and a restaurant, but it was still very nice and pretty. I think you pay a little extra for a real harbor view. By all... More

When you stay at Brown's Wharf Inn, you are there for the fantastic view of Boothbay Harbor from your room. The hotel facility itself is less grand, reflecting the fact that it was constructed many decades ago. Bathrooms are tiny, furnishings are dated, and the balcony outside your room is shared with all the other rooms on your level (there... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights. Friendly staff, rooms immaculate, beautiful views from room. Enjoyed watching two beautiful sunsets and all the boats in the harbor. Did not eat at the restaurant but the coffee in the lobby was delicious! Hope to return soon!

This was our first stay at Brown's in Boothbay Harbor where we've visited for many years. Wish we had found it years ago. We weren't quite sure how the room would be as it was classified as "Inner Harbor View" but we were VERY pleased with the view, the comfortable chairs on the waterside deck and room itself was very...

Booth bay is a fantastic place for adults to get away. The hotel was right on the harbor. Beautiful sunsets and the room was clean and very comfortable. The hotel dining room was pricey but the food was excellent.
