Boothbay Harbor Inn has the ambience and motif of the '70s in their rooms, lobby, and restaurant. The staff was very helpful in assisting us with things to do in and around Boothbay Harbor. We were always greeted with a smile. The room was clean and the bathroom had an excellent shower.

The location is very convenient to the town connected by the Foot Bridge. We were able to walk to shops, restaurants, biking, and boating. A quick drive takes you to East and West Boothbay and South Port Island.

It was quiet and restful also.

Room Tip: All the rooms have a view of the harbor. You may want to ask if the room is updated.

My husband and I had a wonderful getaway to the Boothbay Harbor Inn. Beautiful hotel and the staff was terrific. The food was excellent and the staff goes out of their way to make your stay a happy one. My husband and I were completely relaxed and really didn't want to leave. The room faced the bay with a balcony overlooking all of the beautiful boats. I will definitely be back. Very well worth the ride from upstate New York to the beautiful state of Maine. The footbridge makes a quick trip to great shops and restaurants. I recommend this to all my friends!!!

Room Tip: Rooms with a water view are great to relax on the deck.

It's a very nice location right on the bay - a GREAT view. Food was excellent. The manager (Pat) went out of his way to satisfy our requests and the service staff were all helpful and friendly. A real highlight was the evening entertainment - Nancy Grace and a tenor (I'm sorry I've forgotten his name but not his excellent performance) accompanied by Kevin Kylie on keyboard were outstanding - Broadway class performances!

We go to Boothbay Harbor at least once a year, and always stay at this inn. It's not fancy, but it's nice, clean and comfortable. Great location on the harbor, near the footbridge. We stayed there just two nights ago, near the end of a two-week road trip around the Northeast. When we got in the room, I said to my wife, "Feels like home."

Just across the footbridge from the town, and directly on the harbor, this hotel is in a great location. Our room had a lovely deck on the second floor overlooking the harbor. Not all rooms have views, but there are nice Adirondack chairs on the lawn where you can sit and enjoy a coffee or beverage while staring at the boats in the harbor! Talk about relaxing! Staff was very friendly and helpful as well. Stayed for the weekend, and already want to go back!

Room Tip: Second floor harbor view room is worth the extra money!

I held my son's wedding rehearsal dinner at the Boothbay Harbor Inn. The staff was very friendly, and helpful in the planning ahead of time. The dining room manager set us up inside, because the weather wasn't really cooperating, which was a big relief.
The food was absolutely spectacular, we had a chicken and ribs barbecue, with potato salad, green salad, rolls and corn on the cob.
The ribs may well be the best I've ever had, falling off the bone. The chicken was top-notch, with obviously select cuts used, the same for the spare ribs; both were loaded with meat.
Whether for a meal or a big event, the Boothbay Harbor Inn will leave you both full, and happy.
Special thanks to Pat, Cindy and the rest of the staff, with special kudos to the chef, for making this a memorable dinner for everyone in the wedding.

We returned to the Boothbay area recently for our 30th anniversary.We stayed in Boothbay on the first night of our honeymoon 30 years ago. Couldn't remember the place we stayed back then, but glad we found this place. Weekend before memorial weekend, but for the money it was well worth being a bit early for a few things being open. Service great. Room great. Nice TV. Wife loved the in room Keurig. Great bed. Even the 2 in room chairs were comfy. Deck was nice. Close to foot bridge. Overall no complaint. Would definitely return, if the price was right. (The faucet in the bathroom seems way out of place, too close to sink?? Like they had to keep something from the 70's after the remodel.. ;) no big deal just strange)

Overall good for us, thanks

Room Tip: the seagulls are not shy.
