One thing we've learned over the years is that unless it's a B&B or Spruce Point, if it's in BBH, it's a motel. Browns, Capt. Fish, Rocktide, and all the rest. So as long as you go into it expecting a motel, you are good. Rocktide is a very decent motel. Unfortunately, we booked last minute and ended up in... More

We booked a superior harbor-view room, It was worth every penny. All the rooms in the harbor side buildings have walk out decks. You could enjoy a drink on your own deck and be right next to the ocean in our superior room. The view was outstanding. The breakfast was superior to almost all motel breakfasts we've had with many... More

Great breakfast buffet, library, models of old ships, views galore, friendly and helpful staff! Access to footbridge is right there to take you to the shopping areas. There's a free trolley right from the hotel. Love this place!

Perfect location for a great time in Boothbay harbor! Love the outside cocktail hour with amazing views. Breakfast buffet has most any food you are hoping for. Beds comfortable and great shower and towels! Coffee in room. Great time! Went sailing on Eastwind schooner and had cocktails and apps on rooftop at Boathouse bistro watching sunset. I love the walk... More

Our hotel room was very clean, white & simple. The room was priced right for the value. Dinner at the outside restaurant was spectacular & the view incredible. Breakfast was buffet style with plenty of options for everyone. Staff was very nice.

We planed a last minute trip and found a room at the Rocktide. Our room was very comfortable and nice, had a balcony with a view of the harbor. The location is excellent, right next to the footbridge. The bar is on the water and was very convenient to grab a drink. Friendly staff but the bar was consistently understaffed.... More

Great staff and location along with a nice room. I loved stepping out of my room overlooking the harbor. The only thing missing was a private balcony. I will definitely stay again when I return. Took a break each afternoon for happy hour at the lounge. The included breakfast was a nice hot buffet including eggs, sausage, home fries and... More

We had been to Boothbay Harbor previously and wanted to stay close to the foot bridge this time. The Rocktide is right at the end of the footbridge allowing easy access to downtown shopping, restaurants, etc. Our room was clean and comfy and the free continental breakfast started our next day off great!

I had the pleasure of staying with my daughter at the Rocktide Inn in early June due to a family funeral. We have a local summer house but the bedrooms were filled with extra overnight guests so we decided to stay at the beautiful Rocktide Inn. Our room was clean, comfortable and very quiet. We did not have the water... More

Our group of 18 stayed here for the weekend and we were thoroughly pleased with our room accommodations. The staff were friendly & helpful. Everything was great. Our personalized menu, happy hour, meals, harbor views plus easy access to downtown shops via footbridge or trolley made for a great visit. Even the weather was great. We had an awesome visit...
