The hotel is a bit old and run down. The room was fine and comfortable, but our kids ran barefoot on the 2nd floor walkway outside the room and got splinters....so be careful. There's a nice interior yard, so you can sit on the balcony and look at the great views of the harbor, the best part of the hotel.... More

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our short stay at the Boothbay Harbor Inn. Just wish we could've stayed longer and would definitely go back. The staff (Paul and cleaning staff) was great. We really enjoyed dinner at the restaurant. The food was exceptional and Raymond, our waiter, made the experience even better. Next time we go we'll spend the... More

We had a quiet room with a balcony on the top floor. The staff was helpful and informative about the area, which we appreciated. The view of the harbor was wonderful during the day, and the lights across the water at night were pretty, too. We could see a white Catholic church not far from us. Around 6 PM the... More

We only had three day to spend in beautiful Boothbay but enjoyed every minute of it. Our room was a good size. Really clean and a nice bathroom. They have their own restaurant so it makes it easy for breakfast which is excluded . Our room was on the side facing the walking bridge . We sat out there in... More

We enjoyed the location of this property which is located right on the harbor and within walking distance to the main part of Boothbay Harbor. We enjoyed sitting on the deck off the room and watching the boats come and go. The staff was very friendly and always helpful. The property could use some updating particularly in the common areas.... More

Its like walking into a Norman Rockwell painting. Very quite and peaceful. Boothbay Harbor Inn its self could use some updating, maybe remove some (or all) of the mole in the bathroom. But it lives up to the standards of an old Inn on the bay. Loved being able to walk right to the foot bridge from the Inn.

Excellent location with great views! Very short walk downtown across a wonderful foot bridge located exactly in front of the hotel. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms are pretty small, even after we upgraded our initial room, just for having more space for us and for the luggage. The bad critic is about the breakfast - maybe... More

We had two rooms at this hotel. Awesome view. Clean rooms. We had rooms on the bottom floor and the rooms did smell slightly musky but would stay here again. Fair price for the area. Light Breakfast was included and was very good. Very short walk to downtown across a wonderful foot bridge. Just love Boothbay Harbor.

We stayed here for one night and wished that we had booked a longer stay, it was that nice! The staff were helpful, the room was clean. The breakfast was modest. It was a very nice location and we would definitely stay there, again. They have boats available, if you like.
