We booked a room here 2 hours before arriving, and were surprised to find such a pleasant hotel on the harbor, which spacious rooms, balcony overlooking the water, a nice restaurant, and very friendly and accommodating staff. The hotel has been owned by the Brown family for many years and has a very interesting history. Across the harbor is the... More

We enjoyed 3 nights here. Our room 318 was on the top floor, at the side, and had a great view from our balcony. Yes, the views from the rooms directly facing the harbour may be better, but ours was great. On our second night just before sunset the evening sunlight was absolutely breath-taking. The room is a good size... More

Room very nice!!! Clean and spacious for our family of 5. Beautiful flowers in window boxes. Beautiful deck on the water. Just really a nice place! Bathroom is small but come on you don't need that much room. Footbridge is a little walk down the rd we did it with 3 small kids and very minimal complaining. Trolley starts at... More

We stayed here once several years ago and have fond memories of sitting on the balcony watching the marina and harbor traffic. Craving a summer respite from the rigors of reality, we returned to Brown¹s Wharf Inn for a break, and found just what we remembered In some ways, the property feels like the 1950s. The office staff is incredibly... More

Our 2nd stay here and (happily) nothing has changed. Brown's Wharf Inn is situated away from the general hustle & bustle of Boothbay proper and that's a good thing. The restaurant is as good as always and it's a good idea to have a reservation although not a requirement. Don't forget that it's closed on Tuesday nights. Staff is always... More

We stayed here on a ladies' trip. Our goal was waterfront views. This place exceeded out expectations in that way! The Inn is quaint and not far from the walkway that connects the two sides of shore. Patios are not private but it was fun meeting your neighbors as they all came out to see the sunset. On-site restaurant was... More

The balcony and view made this motel an acceptable place to stay. The downsides are the very small bathroom and the (driving, some might walk) distance to the shopping sites. The yachts in the harbor were great to see and dream about.

One night stay. Our room was clean and comfortable. The hotel was near full but we were accommodated without a reservation. Staff friendly and welcoming. Had dinner in the restaurant, our party of three had lobster (2), and NY strip steak. Very good.

My husband and I came here for a 'mini-moon'. It was such a great spot! We were away from the business of downtown, but close enough to walk and enjoy all the restaurants, shops, etc. We had a waterfront view and we were able to sit on our patio and watch the boats and sunsets. Room was very clean and... More
