White Anchor Inn
Ranked #5 of 7 Boothbay B&B and Inns
Reviewed August 6, 2012

We recently stayed at White Anchor Inn while taking our children to Day out With Thomas. May I just say that the location is phenomenal - it was right across the street from the Train Museum, and only 5 minutes from the downtown area. We also loved the big backyard, while there is no play equipment, it does provide lots of area for children to run around and play. All rooms have private balconies, and there were lots of lawn chairs provided. Staff was very friendly, and the rooms while small and a bit dated, are EXCEPTIONALLY clean and provide a/c. There were only 3 things we noticed:

1. There are no toiletries included (little shampoos, soap etc...), so bring your own.
2. We were traveling with other people, and out of all of us we were never able to get the WiFi to work, except for a few minutes the first night.
3. They advertise as having a continental breakfast, but do not plan on it for your breakfast (which unfortunately we did, with the kids). All that is provided is milk, apple juice, tea, coffee, and a few pre-packaged (Little Debbies) pastries. No boxes of cereal, toast, fruit (not even a toaster or microwave so you could bring your own and do it) etc...

Overall it was a nice stay, but in all honesty, for an extra $10 a night we could have gone to a place that provided a true continental breakfast to feed our kids and had an in room fridge, coffee maker and microwave.

However, if they ever decide to do a real continental breakfast (toast, fruit, cereal etc...), then I'd say this is the perfect hotel for the money.

This was our first trip to Maine and we were looking for an affordable place to stay. We found that at the White Anchor Inn. My wife and I were very pleased with the overall experience. The rooms were clean and freshly redone by the new owners. The bath rooms were all so new. Off the back of each room was a deck with chairs for relaxing in the evening. My wife and I felt we got exactly what we paid for. If you are looking for a clean, quite and affordable place to stay consider staying here. The internet service was okay and breakfast was very light. We only took advantage of the coffee in the morning on our way out for day trips. The new owners were wonderful with lots of knowledge of the area and offered suggestions of places and things to see and do. We enjoyed our stay!

What more can I say? Convenient to everything in the Boothbay region. Walking distance to Boothbay Railway Museum. Five minutes or so to Boothbay Harbor. Free internet in rooms. Coffee, juice and packaged buns/danish for breakfast. This is a great headquarters for day trips throughout the mid-coast Maine region. They also have a really nice bait and tackle shop for the fishermen in the family. We will definitely stay there again.
