Have always stayed at name brand hotels, this was a first for us. Great place, very clean and up to date, lovely staff, all the comforts of home. Set in the harbor across the way from the downtown but there is a bridge up the road where you can walk across. Beautiful views and marina, quiet, comfortable stay.

We booked the least expensive room ($179) which had a king bed and a balcony opened to the harborside with lobster boats unloading. Noise was not a problem. the staff was friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean well appointed although not new. Dinner was reasonable, overlooked the marina and the sunsets were great.

absolutely the most amazing motel in the boothbay area- from the customer service at both the front office and the restaurant - to the room and the view - everything was just perfect! We certainly enjoyed being able to fish off of the dock and enjoy sitting on the dock.

I have stayed here many times but not since 1995. The hotel and the restaurant are among the best I have ever had the pleasure of visiting. The staff, chefs and food at the restaurant are a constant 5 star experience, meal after meal. The views from the rooms are phenomenal and the location is perfect. We'll be back every... More

Oh My Gosh!! This has to be the most beautiful place we've ever been to (Boothbay Harbor), but harbor view aside, we certainly chose the right place to stay. We give them the highest rating possible. This is my new mantra..."When you're in Boothbay, there's one place to stay!...Brown's Wharf Inn. We've never been to Brown's before, we've never been... More

Our room on the third floor overlooked the harbor and the Catholic Church at the end of the harbor. We loved sitting on the balcony watching the lobster boats go in and out of the harbor. We watched the sunset too from the balcony. The location was perfect. You can walk the footbridge to the restaurants and shops. I will... More

At first I was disappointed that I was not closer to the piers and stores but as time passed we realized that we were on the quiet side of the harbor and could be in the action with a 15 minute walk. It was nice to see the activity in the downtown area from our balcony across the harbor. Highly... More

It is literally waterfront.The water is so soothing. The rooms are spotless. When you walk in to your room, it is refreshing. It is privately owned. They take great care in all the little details that make your stay enjoyable. This is the place to stay when visiting Boothbay.

The cleanest hotel room I've ever seen, really spotless. Super view over the harbor, fantastic food at the attached restaurant, comfortable room, nice people. We stumbled on this place at the last minute, I wish I could have stayed a week, instead of one night. I highly recommend this hotel. The only thing to be aware of is that the... More
