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

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
