Even though some things seem to have slipped since our last visit (seven years ago?), this is still the absolute best place to stay in Boothbay Harbor --- right on the marina overlooking the harbor and the view across to the village. The place is not as clean as it was before, and the bathroom had hair clumps in the... More

Every room in the inn has a harbor view, the outer harbor view rooms are a little more expensive as is to be expected. The rooms ate not "large" but of good size except the bath which is small, but how much time are you going to spend there. The outside wall is a huge glass door opening to a... More

We went to Boothbay Harbor last year and stayed out of town which wasn't convenient so decided to try Brown's Wharf for 3 nights. We booked a "suite" which turned out was actually an apartment. It had a fully equipped kitchen and had we known this would have gotten some groceries in but in future we will. The apartment was... More

this is a comfortable place in a good location with good views of the harbor. The rooms are basic update "Holiday Inn" type rooms. The rooms with the full view of the harbor are best and not that much more if available. We had the harbor view which was also nice and the restaurant near by had good music playing... More

This motel fulfilled all the requirements of a couple of visiting "wrinklies" - elevator, restaurant on site, no pets allowed, WIFI, a mini refrigerator, slightly distant from "downtown" Boothbay Harbor and waterfront rooms with a king bed. The "curb appeal" is amazing, with colorful flower boxes and hanging baskets everywhere. The staff are friendly, the rooms are spacious, clean and... More

Thought we had booked an inner harbor room. Thought that meant we had a view of the harbor, not the main road. When we asked the front desk about the view, Carol suggested, very nicely by the way, to turn our heads left and then we would see the harbor. Don't know about you, but I take that to mean... More

We spent the first week of August in this lovely cottage. Everything needed for a rental and more, plenty of towels and nice bedding. Cottage itself very nicely furnished, comfortable beds, plenty of room for 5. Kitchen well stocked nice quality pots Spent many hours on porch with lovely view, used gas grill and burner/grill for lobster pot. Coffee maker... More

As the name states Brown's Wharf Inn is exactly that - right on the wharf at Boothbay Harbor. Recently stayed here with a ground floor room. The furniture is dated and the bed - at least in my room, vastly needs new box springs and mattress. Worst night sleep I had on this trip. However, the convenience for view of... More

We spent three nights in this hotel with a view and balcony overlooking the town of Boothbay Harbor and overlooking the harbor with big boats, sailing vessels and lobster boats. It was a pleasure to wake up each morning and open the drapes to such a spectacular view. I would rate this experience higher except for the fact that this... More

We stayed at this facility on a recent trip to Boothbay Harbor, Maine. The rooms were clean and spacious. We had a nice view of the harbor. The location was a bit out of the main part of town, a good 15 minute walk into town (we never took our car into town). The breakfast menu was small but adequate... More
