This place is directly on the water and has beautiful views of the harbor. Very rustic lodging but clean. There are no elevators so if you do not like stairs request first floor. There is a foot bridge a couple of blocks away that you can cross to go to the main part of town where there are numerous shops... More

We were going to stay one night but ended up staying two nights. Very nice place to stay. We parked the car and walked everywhere. Very clean place and affordable. No complaints! We hope to stay there again.

This hotel is a blast from the past but don't let that put you off. The room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Large cable TV, iron, fridge and coffee machine all in room. The reception staff were very helpful and free coffee and tea is available in the lobby all day. The location is great, five minutes walk and... More

When I made the reservation, the clerk said, "One night? You will wish you stayed longer!" She was absolutely right! We are not 'high-dollar' travelers; we want a good value and clean, comfortable and well-maintained accommodation. This place met our needs and then some. Highly recommend for folks on a bit of a buget who want a neat place, with... More

Just returned from a three night stay at Cap'n Fish's. I have to say that this is one of the cleanest motels that we have ever stayed in.

This hotel has an excellent location- right on the harbor but across from the downtown area making it very peaceful. It is also near to the walking bridge to get across the harbor to downtown. Although it is an older hotel and a little dated, it is very clean and well maintained. The staff was helpful with all requests. There... More

This hotel was very clean and VERY quiet. Beds were firm and the view of the harbor/marina was beyond fantastic. Clerks were friendly. Breakfast was okay; adequate. Pillows were so-so. But for our first 2 nights in the state, this was ideal. Had delicious clam chowder at the nearby restaurant the first night.

This really cool old school motel was just perfect for us. I absolutely sits on the harbour and your view is full of sailboats, lobster trap bouys, and pleasure boats sitting on beautiful waterfront. The staff is extremely helpful and pleasant and the restaurant sitting on the dock is GREAT.
