“Cap'n Fish's Inn, the gem of the beautiful Maine coast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2010

My friend and I, dear friends for 40+ years, try to get together every year for a visit away from our homes in Florida and New Jersey. Boothbay Harbor Maine was as far removed as you can get for either of us, as neither of us had ever been to Maine before. Cap'n Fish's Inn, a beautiful, waterfront, Inn is a wonderful place to stay. The rooms are comfortable and scrupulously clean. You can step outside on the wooden deck and see the bay below. There is an atmosphere of calm and peacefulness all around. The area itself is lovely. A short walk over a charming foot bridge takes you into the town of Boothbay Harbor, full of unique and charming stores and restaurants. There are no chain stores or restaurants. Cap'n Fish also runs a wonderful whale watching boat trip, during which you will see whales and dolphins jumping out of the water nearby.
Cap'n Fish's Inn is very reasonably priced as well. Other guests there told us that the other nearby accommodations were more costly, and not nearly as nice. The hotel staff were all very friendly and competent, and helped us with anything we asked for. There is also a small restaurant on the premises that serves breakfast and lunch. My friend and I were sorry to leave, and can't wait to come back! In fact, I would like to bring my husband for a visit, as soon as I can. I would highly recommend it.

A nice hotel across the bay from most activities, but easy walk over footbridge. it is much more tranquil here. Located right on the water with a very good breakfast restaurant on site.
Staff very pleasant and helpful.

We have traveled throughout New England and to several islands. Booth Bay Harbor is magical, and Cap'n Fish's staff made us feel at home from start to finish, the room was great, clean and cool. Most of all, the view and the hotel grounds are amazing!!! Do not look any further, this is the best!!! Can't wait to return!

We have been visiting Boothbay Harbor for many years and ended up taking a spontaneous trip to the Harbor in August, hoping to find a reasonably priced hotel that was close to the downtown area. Cap'n Fish's Waterfront Inn fit the bill perfectly. Our room had a fantastic view of this quaint tourist town, we were close to everything, our room was comfortable, and on top of everything else, we received a discount for a magical Whale Watch from Cap'n Fish's Whale Watch. A spontaneous trip to Boothbay Harbor became our best trip to the area EVER.

Quick getaway trip to Boothbay Harbor ME. Stayed @ Cap'n Fish's Inn right on the waterfront. Great location & great price. Short walk over a footbridge was full of shops, food and just a pretty & quaint town. Also took a drive through Southport Island and East Boothbay. Love the coast....

We stayed for 3 days at this cute, quaint inn, and it was very enjoyable. The staff was very friendly, gave us great adice on dining, area attractions, directions. They were very accomaodating. the inn is nothing elaborate, but is clean, and right on the waterfront. Though we stayed during rainy weather, we found plenty of things to do in the town, which is walking distance from the inn, right over the footbridge. the local people were very nice, the food was amazing, and be sure to take the "Whale Watching Cruise", it was very nice.

Booked here during Lobster Festival for couple of nights, probably becuase it was a good value. Good location, quiet and just a short walk to the center of town. Clean room, beautiful view and friendly staff.
