We have been coming to Boothbay Harbor for over 30 years have stayed multiple times at the Rocktide, always loved it until 3yrs ago when we looked around and realized nothing had changed. We did not go back until this past July, only stayed 1 night, wish it was more, the room was totally redone from ceiling to floor, all... More

Location could not be better! Right on the Bay. Just a short walk to a pedestrian bridge which went downtown where parking is awful; however, this hotel sponsors a trolley bus which was even more convenient. Tried the food here; it was nothing great, but it was expensive. The free morning breakfast buffet was great; however for other meals I... More

Stayed at the Rocktide 1 night on July 29th. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room was relatively clean, but the carpet still had crumbs and dirt on it from the prior visitors. The bath was very small, but clean also and the towels were thick and fluffy. The "free" buffet breakfast was rather sad. Although served in... More

This place was everything we expected! The Inn isn't anything fancy but the view from the room was fantastic! The location was great! Boothbay is worth the trip. This is a wonderful Maine experience. The hotel is close to the footbridge and there is a trolley to town. Take the short ride to Sunset Drive.

From what we understood new owners took over a few years ago. Here is our un-candid comments about the hotel. It's sort of a mom and pop. However, all hotels in Boothbay Harbor are. There are no "chains" on the harbor. If this was a motel in Maine off the road, it would be a one star. Here are our... More

We enjoyed our visit to the Rocktide Inn on Boothbay Harbor. Front desk was excellent and the room was very nice. Do wish they had a mini frig and microwave though. Hot breakfast the next morning was excellent!

The room was clean and pretty and there was a large outdoor porch area with couches and tables and chairs overlooking the bay. The staff were all warm and friendly. Could not have asked for more. The inn was close to restaurants and water activities.

Nothing fancy! Nice views with some rooms. Rooms small but adequate. Close to footbridge and offers free trolley to town. Restaurant was very good with good service. Free breakfast was so-so. Tends to be a little noisy at night with bands from hotels on each side. Mattresses were very hard.

We recently stayed overnight at this hotel, which is very conveniently located close to the walkway, so you can easily walk across the harbor to the village for shopping and restaurants. We stayed on the second floor in the building behind the main building (next to the parking lot), but we could still see some of the harbor from the... More

I know the area is limited on places to stay, but this was quite the let down. The room was clean but very dated, with a very distinct smell... Wasn't very pleasant. The breakfast in the morning was very disorganized also. On our week long adventure this was the one place I wish we would have passed on.
