“Maine coast”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2010

Quick getaway trip to Boothbay Harbor ME. Stayed @ Cap'n Fish's Inn right on the waterfront. Great location & great price. Short walk over a footbridge was full of shops, food and just a pretty & quaint town. Also took a drive through Southport Island and East Boothbay. Love the coast....

Stayed September 2009, traveled with family

We stayed for 3 days at this cute, quaint inn, and it was very enjoyable. The staff was very friendly, gave us great adice on dining, area attractions, directions. They were very accomaodating. the inn is nothing elaborate, but is clean, and right on the waterfront. Though we stayed during rainy weather, we found plenty of things to do in the town, which is walking distance from the inn, right over the footbridge. the local people were very nice, the food was amazing, and be sure to take the "Whale Watching Cruise", it was very nice.

Booked here during Lobster Festival for couple of nights, probably becuase it was a good value. Good location, quiet and just a short walk to the center of town. Clean room, beautiful view and friendly staff.

This was a great find for us. The rooms are motel rooms but are spotless. The carpeting is brand new and the rooms are fine in the motel setting. Parking is plentiful. Other people have complained about being on this side of the harbor on other hotel reviews. We did not find it to be a problem at all. It was a little bit over a five minute walk to the foot bridge to get to the other side of town. We actaully preferred this because parking is an issue on the other side of the harbor. Overall we were very pleased with our experience and would reccommend it to anyone.

We stayed at Cap'n Fish's for just one night but would stay there again in a heartbeat. The location is fabulous, right on the harbor and just a short walk to the footbridge going into town. The service was also wonderful. The ladies at the desk were very friendly and eager to help make our stay comfortable. Our room was immaculate and had a lovely view of the harbor, even though we were in the back of the building. I also found the bed to be very comfortable and had a great night's sleep. If you like mom and pop style motels that aren't about frills but are about comfort and cleanliness, this is an excellent choice.

I attended a wedding in Boothbay Harbor, Maine in September 2008. By the time I booked my stay, most of the hotel rooms in the area had already been taken. I thought the name "Cap'n Fish's" sounded cheesy, but the hotel is located right on the harbor and has spectacular views. There is a footbridge that crosses across the harbor, so you can get to the other side of the village in no time. Cap'n Fish's is located in a very convenient location and has plenty of parking. Our room was large and looked right out onto the harbor. Everything was very clean and the staff was friendly. This hotel is located right next to the Lobster Dock (amazing seafood and great views), so you can grab a good meal anytime after 11:30am. Overall, our stay was excellent. Don't let the crazy name fool you!
