“A Wonderful Place To Stay”
Reviewed October 16, 2011

Brown's Wharf Inn Is a wonderful place to stay if you are visiting Boothbay Harbor. The view from the balcony is outstanding. The staff is very friendly and helpful, they even have coffee and tea in the lounge. We were able to check our e-mails using Brown's computer. Remembering the wonderful lobster dinner will stay with us all year, their prime rib is also very good. From repeat customers.

A one night stay four years after our first visit, when their restaurant was closed. Accomodation wise its a three storey motel with fine harbour views, a drive away from the centre of town. Rooms are fine - decently sized with balconies on the harbour and of a standard to compete with most of the bigger and better players in the motel segment. We found the very large restaurant ( catering for hotel guests and outsiders) to be average and quite expensive- so I'd question value in this respect. No help with bags was offered.

I brought my family to stay in Boothbay and chose Brown's Wharf Inn because of the reviews. The staff was wonderful and helpful, the rooms were immaculate and the views were absolutely beautiful. We had 2 breakfasts in the dining room and a Saturday night dinner and all were reasonably priced and the food was excellent. These folks really care about your stay.

My husband and I stayed two nights in a room overlooking the harbor and were quite impressed with Brown's Wharf. Watching the fishing boats come and go from the privacy of our own room was so relaxing! Clean and comfortable inn with a friendly staff and a fine restaurant. Dinner in the fireside room was fabulous even though a bit pricey. Our only complaint was the extremely tiny bathroom in our room. Okay for a night or two but would definitely be annoying for a longer stay.

Room Tip: Spring for a harbor side room. It's worth it!

We were traveling south through Maine and decided to stay a night in Boothbay Harbor. The area is really pretty and with no reservations, we were lucky to get the last room at Brown's Wharf on a Sat. night in September. We had a balcony right over the water. We could watch the fishermen bring in their catch and all the boats were docked all around the cove. The room was fairly large and although it may not have been updated recently, it was very clean.
We were not 'in the center' of town but there was a pedestrian bridge not far away to walk across the cove to the main part of town where all the shops and restaurants are located.
We decided, however, to eat at our hotel and the food was very good.
Would stay here again when traveling through.

Really like that al rooms have a waterfront view. The staff at registration were very helpful and friendly. We did not eat there, so can't comment on the restaurant. The location is very scenic, however not in the middle of the town. We had a car, so driving around the bend was not a problem. Also walkable if you like to walk about 15 minutes each way. The trolley into town that comes and goes is nice, but ends early so that you can't use it to return from dinner. I think it ended around 5 or 5:30 pm. We had a bathtub issue and they fixed it immediately and wanted to make sure that everything else was fine. Overall would stay there again.
