“Always Great !!!!!!”
Reviewed August 15, 2011

We have been coming to Brown's Wharf since 1997 by boat and staying in the marina.
In 2011 we were boatless and stayed in one of the harbor front rooms with a balcony.What a view at sunset!!

The rooms are spacious immaculate and up to date.It was a surprise that they were so nice.

As experienced in the past the Brown family and staff were warm and welcoming.

Fresh coffee in the sitting room always availble as well as breakfast overlooking the harbor is part of the charm.

Dinner was great whether you want prime rib special or the twin lobsters

Room Tip: Ask for a harborfront room if available -2 nd floor is our favorite

The website photos does not do justice to the absolutely beautiful and picturesque location of Brown's Wharf Inn in Boothbay Harbor. You can't get any closer to being on the water, rooms are clean and spacious, restaurant on the premises with a great menu, friendly staff and outstanding homemade desserts. We were within walking distance of everything that we wanted to to do i.e. whale watching, dining out, shopping, etc. and if we didn't feel like walking, there was a shuttle that picked us up and dropped us off right at the motel. We were sorry for our vacation to end and can't wait to go back next summer!

Stayed 9 nights this time (4th year in a row). This place has it all. Wonderful people, clean oversized rooms, wonderful restaurant (inside and outside dining). The food is great .. you must try the twin lobster special. Brown's is not just near the harbor .. it is on the harbor. Just a short (10 minutes) walk over the historic footbridge to the center of town. Can not wait until next year. If you go (and you should) say hi to Kathy the bartender.

My husband and I just returned from our annual trip to Maine. We always spend 10 days in Boothbay Harbor, and for the better part of the last 15 years, we have stayed at Brown's Wharf Inn. The staff is very friendly and helpful; the rooms are kept scrupulously clean; and the view is spectacular even if it is foggy. We have traveled to many places in the world, but we always reserve the same 10 days in Maine at the same hotel because there is no where else we would rather go to just relax and enjoy our selves!

Beautiful location! Live Lobsters in the sizing pots were great for the kids to see. Just be aware they advertise the rooms come with breakfast.....but they charge you.

We love Brown's Wharf Inn. This was our fifth stay because we cannot imagine staying anywhere else in Boothbay Harbor. Each room has a balcony and the view from the Harbor view rooms is all the entertainment you need.

The staff are all very friendly and helpful, including the staff who clean the rooms.

We have not eaten in the restaurant. as there are so many options in town, so I cannot rate that.

We spent a long weekend at Brown's. The rooms were clean and comfortable (just like home) and the amenities were just what we needed. Coffee maker in the room along with a refridge make a huge difference, yet coffee is also avaialble in the hotel lobby.
The hotel is right on the dock! You can watch the boats and yachets cruise by your room. Local lobstermen can also be viwed in the AM and PM when to return to port. There is a restaurant and bar (1 outside too) that has the atmosphere of true downeast Maine. The theme is clearly nautical with a view of the harbour and many large scale vessels to amaze you. There is even a diving suit in there with one of those old bronze helmets on the top. The food was traditional with offering of seafood and beef alike. If you like prime rib or twin lobsters, get there early to assure availibility. We will be back!

Room Tip: All rooms have ocean views!
