Schooner Bay is a small hotel located on Highway 1 in Rockport, between Camden to the north and Rockland to the south. We'll be heading back there next year. PROS: Clean; comfortable beds covered with lovely quilts; our room on the back faced a babbling brook which was nice to fall asleep to; fresh baked muffin sized quiches, blueberry break... More

We had the room on the second floor nearest Rt 1. The room itself was nice enough, with a comfortable bed, and a small table and chair that was good for using my laptop. The towels in the bath were pretty thick and the shower was very good. On the down side, we were on Rt 1 and we had... More

This place was incredibly clean! Quaint, quiet and more than we expected for what we paid. While we didn't see the owners (we came in 'after hours') I don't think that impacted the quality of our stay. I really couldn't believe how clean it was! I would absolutely stay there again.

Be sure to check beforehand if you are expecting breakfast as advertised. The place was not well filled, and I was informed that the owner decided not to do breakfast. Seems like a poor way to run an inn.

Scott P, Owner at Schooner Bay Motor Inn, responded to this review

In reference to your less than favorable review, we do our best to create an atmosphere of hospitality, which includes our habit of regularly serving breakfast for all of our guests. Despite that fact, we cannot ALWAYS serve our full breakfast, this is especially true during off seasons, and when our residency is low. We apologize that your experience was... More

Arrived on an fall night with wife, child, and two pups. Only thing left was a bed room. Not even a rollaway remained. We took it, and prepared for a long night. About 30 minutes later there was a knock, and a staff member brought in a rollaway. Did someone not need it. Oh no, she replied, the owner brought... More

I stayed for one night on my way south from Lubec, ME, after 10 days on the road. Check-in/out was smooth. Breakfast was good with various rolls, muffins, juice and coffe. Given the mid-October time frame the motel was sparsely populated. The room was a bit old school, but clean and tidy. Wish they had more options for charging electronics.... More

I found this inn while traveling to Bar Harbor. It was so good, I stayed there again on my way home! The rooms are all different, but one thing in common is they are comfortable, clean, and quiet. It is true that the Inn is right on Route 1, and there is some traffic noise, but not enough to keep... More

We went to Rockport last weekend and made a last minute reservation at this motel. We had a king size bed room, comfortable, and very clean. Unfortyunatly we were in the front of the motel, so near the road, there is a lot of traffic at night, but what can you get at 8PM on Colombus day? The free continental... More
