4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We spent 2 pleasant nights here in Aug. 2012 and recently returned (minus college daughter) for more of the same. Having stayed before, we knew we wanted the best view of the harbor we could get, so we chose a superior water view room. It was as expected, a nice corner room with an excellent view. Not very spacious, but... More

We stayed in a room that did not have a water view, however, we did have a view of the harbor between the main lobby and the rest of the hotel. Our main reason to go to Boothbay was to go to the Maine Botanic Garden. Our package plan included tickets to the Garden. The only thing we did not... More

I took my mom here for our annual August trip. This was my first time in Boothbay Harbor. We have never experienced a more clean room than here. These rooms are so clean! My mom dropped the back of her earring and she couldn't find it. When we returned after housekeeping cleaned the room, there it was on the night... More

We loved our stay at the Rocktide Inn. Our room had a water view and we enjoyed all aspects of this hotel. They have a nice deck where you can sit and enjoy a drink or read, a great bar, a super restaurant, and a very nice seating area complete with a library, TV, games, piano, and view. We enjoyed...

A pleasant hotel with a nice view from the restaurant. Room was adequate, but no refrigerator.Maid service could use some additional training, though room was clean. Breakfast selection both mornings was adequate, though food was mostly lukewarm or cold. Great location near the footbridge so no need to use a car to get to most restaurants or activities. Guess the... More

We chose the Rocktide based on other reviews and price. When we travel the hotel is not our destination but rather a place to sleep and shower in preparation for a day of adventure. The Rocktide standard room fit the bill and so much more. The room was very well maintained and very clean with a quaint modest New England... More

We spent a long weekend at the Rocktide to celebrate my father’s 90th birthday. The Rocktide is one of my father’s favorite places in the whole world and it was the perfect place for four generations to hold a family reunion. We had seven guest rooms for three nights and ate breakfast and dinner at the Rocktide all three days.... More

Expectations will ultimately define your experience at Rocktide Inn in Bootbay Harbor, Maine. There are no high rise, luxury hotels in this "quaint" Maine village. Neither are there any usual-suspect chain accommodations. Most accommodations in the area seem to be in B&Bs or small inns. Rocktide Inn and the contiguous Boothbay Harbor Inn are the largest facilities in town. As... More

We had a corner room on the top floor and had a nice view of the harbor, restaurants on the other side of the harbor and the stream coming into the bay. The staff was very friendly and the lobby area has a very historic feeling with all the model boats, comfortable couches and chairs. The breakfast was ample and... More

Spotlessly clean room in a central location on the harbor. The complimentary breakfast was very good with lots of choices. The staff was friendly and helpful. The pool closed at 8 pm which was too early. We would have gone for a swim after dinner. Three of us shared a room for one night and it was fine. We would... More
