We booked this hotel last minute and got a waterfront king room. The rooms were large and clean and they all had a great view with a nice balcony and chairs. The beds were clean (double sheeted) and very comfortable. It is a bit of a walk to the footbridge but there is a trolley for those who don't want... More

Stayed here with my cousins for two nights. View of the harbor was outstanding. Sat on our deck and watched the boats go in and out and enjoyed a beautiful sunset. Had breakfast and dinner at the restaurant and found both to be great. Service was wonderful. Really friendly, helpful staff. Room was very clean. The bathroom door opening into... More

We randomly found Brown's Wharf Inn on the internet and decided to give it a shot after reading some reviews on tripadvisor. The staff was friendly and helpful, our room was adorable, comfortable and clean and had an amazing view of the harbor. We will be back!

Ahhhhh, so nice to be back. This was our second time staying here, and we loved it as much as the first time. The view is mesmerizing, and calms your soul. The room was neat, cleaned beautifully, and the staff is very friendly. Just a wonderful time in Maine.

We are very satisfied with this "Motel" (as shown on its sign). Room 201 has excellent view of marina. Since the rate for all three floors are the same, definitely request a higher floor room for better view. I won't recommend the rooms facing the footbridge. If you don't need the view, stay in Flagship Inn to save 50%. We... More

We were lucky to get a room in August and as so glad we tried as the evening, night and morning views of the harbor with the many fishing, sailing and power boats was extremely enjoyable. The room was exceptionally clean and quiet. We drove to town as it is quite a walk and we understand a shuttle bus is... More

A family reunion of cousins brought me to Brown's Wharf Inn in July. It was a glorious three day stay there. The room was great...view from the porch of boats, seagulls and sunsets! What more could you ask for. Oh, yes, the food and service was exceptionally good. The staff more like family, especially Sandy who made my stay there... More
