Reviewed August 31, 2012

The location is unbeatable, just short walk to the shopping center. Many good restaurants are in the walking distance, but the one in front of the hotel has good food and great price. The view is great, especially in the early morning and during the sunset. All the staffs, from the front desk to the cleaning staffs, are friendly. The prices are very reasonable and the rooms are clean. Decoration is simple but have all we needed for the family vacation. The only complain is the air-conditioners are little noisy. Definitely will go back.

This motel is on the harbour front, just a five minute walk to the footbridge over to the main town. It’s very quiet on the motel side of the harbour, but still close to all the shops and restaurants. The room had a huge king size bed and all the amenities you’d expect. It was also clean and well maintained. It’s best to pay extra for waterfront rooms as Harborview rooms are overlooking the car park towards the picturesque harbour beyond. Also, although you can sit on the deck outside the rooms, these are walk ways and are used by other guests as thoroughfares. Because of this, we had to draw the curtains whenever we were in the room. Breakfast was simply coffee and donuts; coffee was available in the office all day. Or you could use the machine in the room. There is also a discount on Cap’n Fish’s whale watching cruise, which was an amazing experience. The motel staff couldn’t have been more helpful, especially Linda who went out of her way to offer advice and sort out any queries we had on anything from how to eat a lobster to ringing the post office to get stamps for us to send a card to the UK. This is an excellent budget option-great location, great price.

Room Tip: Pay extra for an ocean view (not harbour view)

Peaceful and quiet, away from the busy part of Boothbay. Great location, easy to walk to the other side of the harbor by the foot path bridge. Hotel is fabulous, clean, comfortable and the ladies in the office are teriffic! Great price too! Views are breathtaking, sunsets are better...great place to relax and enjoy the view! Dockside Grille has great food. Whale watching cruise was fun and you get a nice discount if you stay at the hotel. Overall and wonderful place to stay and visit. Can't wait to go back!

The location of Cap'n Fish's is away from the main street area of Boothbay Harbor, yet a short walk via the foot bridge. The walk is welcomed after eating at the restaurants. The view is fabulous with plenty of sitting area to enjoy a drink and a snack. The price can't be beat for the location and the ultra clean rooms.
The staff went out of their way to answer any questions we had on the area. They also suggested some restaurants and siteseeing opportunities. We did have a minor problem in the room, but it was taken care of immediately.
We had breakfast at the dockside grill....plenty of food at good prices. A shout out to one of the young lady servers who told us of an area where the locals go to watch the sun set. She even took the time to write down very specific directions on how to get there!! It was a great drive and the sunset was beautiful.
Next time we are in the area, we will be back.

Sometimes you wonder if the owners of an establishment really care if you have enjoyed your stay. Be assured that Dian Fish cares. After hearing we were not happy with our visit in 2011, she addressed the situation and welcomed us back with a gift certificate.Last week we used her gift and booked a room for a second night as well. She called us to welcome us back and everything was perfect..great place, best view in Boothbay Harbor. We've spent Labor Day week end there for many years in the past...it was good to bhe back.

Room Tip: The second floor rooms in the right wing facing the hardbor have the best view.

The inn was great with large windows facing the harbor and sunset. Awnings helped keep the room cool. The room was quiet and clean.Wrap around deck overlooking harbor was relaxing.The dockside grille had good food. We had breakfast and lunch there.
