Schooner Bay Motor Inn was a wonderful surprise. The rooms are charmingly decorated with country touches like quilts and maritime decor. It was like a home away from home. The continental breakfast was better than the standard chain hotel fare - featuring scones, mini quiche, fresh fruits in season, fruit breads and coffee cakes along with the usual bagels, toast...

We had planned to stay at Schooner Bay Motor Inn and were rudely suprised to find a note asking us to call about our room once we arrived. The man was not present just had us call over an intercom and told us that he had overbooked "accidently" (that may or may not be true), however he did go ahead... More

What a super, clean Inn to stay. The reason for the 4 stars is because the shower regulator was not working right and I almost got burned. Otherwise AWESOME place. Oh and I can't forget the breakfast. YUMMY YUMMY YUMMY!!! All homemade petite quiche, banana bread, fresh fruits, including raspberries,blueberries. Thanks for a great stay!!!!

This is a lovely special place to come and relax, I have been coming here every year (from California) since the new owners purchased this gem of a property and have observed the renovations taken place. This is an intimate Inn with approximately 22 rooms. If you are looking to really get to know Maine and the folks who have... More

A good place to land at a very reasonable rate, which is something to be said in a tourist mecca during high season. (probably because it is not on the ocean and has no view) Very clean, and right between Rockport and Rockland so it's convenient to everything. (For light sleepers, please note this motel is right next to the... More

Room was nice, clean and quiet. Complimentary breakfast was wonderful!!! Bigger hotels need to take lessons from Schooner Bay!! We would highly recommend for anyone to stay here. If we ever go back, we would stay with them again!!!

The owner takes great care with this quaint little motel. We were in room 106 - very roomy in the back with a view of the creek. Had the windows open all night with no road noise. Floors are a little creaky but everything was clean, well maintained, with good plumbing and we even had cute lobster napkins with the... More

We're spending our last of 3 nights here after a week in a cottage in West Bath. Headed home tomorrow. Our room here was very comfortable and extremely clean. The owner and staff are friendly and affable. Above average continental breakfast. Rooms very reasonably priced. Would definitely stay here again.

George and I had such a wonderful time, we requested an extra day. Entire staff was so personable and made us feel right at home. We can't say enough about the breakfast. From the fresh fruit to the homemade pastries and mini quiche started our day off right. This is a very pet friendly hotel staff and visitors were always... More

First let me say that I stayed here about 6 years ago and gave it a less than favorable review. On this trip I wanted to spend a day in Camden on my way up to Bar Harbor so I thought I'd bite the bullet and stay here again only because it was so convenient to Rockport and Camden. From... More
