We were in Boothbay Harbor for a wedding and stayed for 5 nights at the Rocktide. We loved it. Clean, nice complimentary breakfast, staff very friendly and helpful, convenient to footbridge into town. Ask for a room with a bit of a harbor view, And the price is right.

On quiet side of Boothbay Harbor with easy access to Foot Bridge to restaurants and shops. Nice clean rooms, indoor pool and plenty parking. Only complaint is the outside lights so bright and no curtain in middle window let in too much light for night sleep.

We had a great stay at the Rocktide. The staff were all very nice and our room was newly renovated and very clean. Breakfast was good as well. The views and location close just across the footbridge were spectacular.
