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

We stayed two nights on a recommendation from a family member who frequents the hotel quite often. We were not disappointed. The rooms aren't really big, but they are fine. We had a deluxe ocean view room. The beds were comfortable, the view was really nice, and the room was clean. The bathroom was very clean and the hot water... More

I'll try to keep this review short and to the point. Had a 2 night stay. Excellent location at BBH, very good staff. Yes, it's not the fanciest place, but very nice, and would stay here again next trip. Overall, the Rocktide is clean and well maintained. Views from the rooms are not great, parking lot, but good views overlooking... More

Great position in the harbour and whilst on the quiet side a short walk across the pier and you are in the small town. The room was ok with all the necessary essentials (except a fridge). The sun-deck is a great place to sit out but could use a few more recliners as could the pool area. The wifi signal... More

I spent a few days visiting my sister and my nine year old nephew in Booth Bay Harbor. They had a double occupancy room for 4 weeks. The Rocktide Inn is very clean and airy located directly on the water in the harbor. It has a beachy motel feel with steel drums in the background on the deck and balconies... More
