After submitting a scathing review in July of the Rocktide, I felt a little guilty after many years of excellent experience with the venue. We decided to give it another chance. The visit this time (October '13) was better than the last. The room was clean, convenient and comfortable. The breakfast buffet, while not quite up to the quality of... More

This was our second visit to the Rocktide Inn in Boothbay Harbor, ME. That we chose to stay there a second time may be interpreted as a positive! And it was a positive experience this time too. The beds were firm enough that we rested well. Things were very quiet; it was close to the end of the season, which... More

Everything about this hotel was lovely - Joe on reception a real charmer - Arden (?) the young Jamaican bar man made 'happy hour' even happier as did Patricia. Audrey, our room maid did wonderful towel sculptures - usually done on cruises but this added an extra touch. I can't remember the breakfast ladies name but she greeted everyone with... More

Spent the week of the 4th of July at the Rocktide. Yes, things have changed but except for a towel or two missing, we were thoroughly pleased with the remodeled room and the service. This was our 3rd year and already have reservations for 2014. Keep up the good work...we really love it!

We chose a room on second floor with harbor views. Room was comfy and clean. Price included breakfast buffet and that was well done and tasty with lots of choices. Front desk was very helpful with directions and advice. Highly recommend this place! PS - the many ship models on display in the lobby was a real treat for the... More

We stayed here to be near the Coastal Maine Botanical Garden for a conference. Our second-floor room was very nice, not super-modern but perfectly acceptable. Unfortunately my roommate was injured and we needed to move to the first floor.The staff was so helpful and courteous. Our group had a lovely cocktail party on the deck with beautiful music playing and... More

It's not bad, but its not great either. Location is super, views are superior ( but let's get rid of the signs that impede the view from the deck), rooms & buildings are tired, complimentary breakfast is above average, room Kerrigan coffee makers are appreciated, service is abysmal (I get the feeling that the staff just don't enjoy their chosen...
