“It's all about the location!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2013

Although the hotel is nicely appointed, location is the best part. After parking the car on arrival, we did not have to move it until we checked out! The footbridge just a few steps away was awesome. We enjoyed being on the opposite side of the harbor this visit as the views were magnificent!! We will definitely stay here again. Staff was friendly and knowledgable.

This hotel sits tight on the east side of picturesque Boothbay Harbor, very close to the foot bridge which leads into the heart of downtown and the town's piers and numerous restaurants. The rooms are perfectly adequate, but you pay more for bayside views (not sure it's worth the premium, however). In our case, the best aspect of the hotel was sitting out on the sunny veranda for a pre-dinner drink, watching the sun go down over Boothbay--exquisite. The hotel's restaurant also has the same bayside views. The staff, esp. the manager, was helpful and informative; they went out of their way to quiet down a noisy neighbor who kept us awake in the middle of he night.

The key here is location. Right next door to the footbridge to shops and restaurants and activities. Rooms are very basic but clean. Ask for a harbor view room! A sliding glass door opens to a balcony overlooking the bay. For peak season on a weekend, the rate was good. Parking lot is tight and decor is circa 1989 but we would definitely go back.

Great place to stay! Very professional, rooms were clean, great service. Entertainment and tours with Kevin were enjoyable. Excellent view from dining room of the Harbor. All staff there were professional and kind too. My tour group enjoyed tremendously! The footbridge to town was right near hotel so going into town each day was what everybody needed after the meals. Overall, a very relaxing and enjoyable stay at the Inn so much so my group, Bethel Gospel Tabernacle, have already booked for 2014.

We enjoyed our stay. The room was comfy, the sunsets divine. The biggest plus-- how wonderful the employees are. Paul couldn't have been more helpful and terrific--Cindy and Bianca were sweet and their recommendations were spot on!

Nice hotel, great staff. Paul the late desk person was very helpful. Close to the footbridge made this a great location to all the local attractions. Breakfast was a help. Would gladly stay there again.

Room Tip: Any of the second floor rooms had a nice view and a balcony

We only stayed for one night but it was very nice. Had a room on the second floor looking out over the harbor which we greatly enjoyed. Had chairs on the balcony for watching the sunset.
It was unseasonably hot for Maine when we were there and the air conditioning worked very well. Staff are VERY nice. The room was clean and attractive. Highly recommend it.

Room Tip: rooms upstairs have a better view but no elevator.
