My husband and I just returned from a road trip to Maine. When we were in Boothbay Harbor, we stayed at the Rocktide Inn. We were very pleased with our experience. The location is perfect - just a short walk (2 - 3 minutes) across the footbride and you are in the heart of the Boothbay Harbor village. Our room... More

The Rocktide is across the harbor from the main business center in Boothbay Harbor and reachable via the walking bridge. You have to navigate around several other hotels and restaurants but it's worth the ten minute walk. The restaurant has an outdoor deck on the harbor with great views. There is also an indoor dining room overlooking the deck with... More

My husband a I brought my in-laws up to Boothbay as a treat- they visited yearly and stayed at the Rocktide before they stopped being able to travel alone. Unfortunately we were very disappointed in the property! Their room was fine - my husband and I took the front corner room that faced the restaurant so they could have a... More

My husband and I stayed here for three nights in early August, and it was great. We booked last-minute, and it was almost full, so we ended up in two different rooms. The first two nights we were in room 300 - and what a delight that was! A gorgeous little oasis with an adorable little spot to sit out... More

Pros: great location, close to footbridge, free parking, delicious complimentary breakfast, restaurant in the inn has wonderful seating outside on the deck, trolley (which we didn't use because the walk was easy) Cons: rooms are simple and a bit outdated yet clean, wi-if is terrible (however the view and surroundings should keep you entertained), bathroom fan sounded like an airplane...

Our party of four stayed at Rocktide Inn for one night. The price of the room was reasonable compared to many other places in the area. The breakfast was extremely nice and included an omelet station as well as many other tables of food to choose from. Would definitely stay here again.

Great place to stay! Super clean. Friendly staff. Right near the footbridge to all the shops. Great breakfast included in the room mate and a very reasonable price. Would absolutely return!!! We travel often and this has been one of the best places we've stayed in

This is the second summer that we vacationed in Boothbay and spent several nights at the Rocktide Inn. Our room this year was stunning! Bright and clean and spotless. We thoroughly enjoyed our view of the ocean as well as the patio bar. Breakfast is included but ends at 9:30 am. The trolley leaves the parking lot every half hour... More

Stayed one night in room 153, immediately adjacent to the main lodge. Basic motel - type room, but certainly adequate - clean and comfortable. Check in fast and easy. Friendly staff. We sat on the deck overlooking the harbor while enjoying a very good buffet breakfast with lots to choose from. The lounges and dining rooms are in the main... More

Great view...good food...nice staff...nice place. Whether you're for fun as a couple or as a group, this place is great. I had champagne lobster with my popover, hot out of the oven. Yum! Delishous. Others were very pleased with filets. Highly recommend for a dinner outside while watching the boats cruise around the harbor.
