We loved staying here. Room and view were great. Our only problem was at dinner one night. The food was outstanding but the service was less than acceptable. We spoke to the manager to explain not complain. She agreed with us and not only comped the meal but gave us breakfast the next day. That was above and beyond. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Doing our research on trip advisor for Brown's Wharf Inn, Boothbay Harbor, Me. turned out to be a wonderful experience. Everything was wonderful from our first greeting. Our hotel room the perfect size, the view from our balcony, Brown's Wharf restaurant, all the staff everywhere on the grounds and the beautiful grounds itself. Only thing you will hate is when you have to leave.

Room Tip: All rooms on the waterfront. All floors appear to be enjoyable.

We had never been to Boothbay Harbor, Maine before. We chose to stay at Browns Wharf Inn and this turned out to be a great choice! It lives up to all that they clain on the internet and more... The room was very clean, very welcoming, and roomy. The staff was so friendly and met all of our requests. The restaurant is very good and in fact, we chose to dine there both nights! Our deck / balcony off of our top floor room was so large and private. The views were amazing. Loved the view of the church steeple right above the lobster boats. Getting to the hotel and getting to everywhere else from here was very easy.. Centrally located, this spot is really in the best location of all the other hotels. We chose well and will definitely return. The front desk staff went above and beyond! Price is very reasonable. We loved the abundance of flowers growing everywhere. Very very nice. P.S. Eat breakfast at a nearby place called 'Mama D's'!

Room Tip: The staff on the phone helped me by suggesting a room at or near the corner, giving us a clear view...

We stayed here twice on our trip; once on our way up the coast and again on our trip home. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The first time I opted for the cheaper room with the inner harbor view. I was disappointed with the view and the staff was accommodating and moved us to an Ocean view room which was a beautiful view and only cost $20. And it was worth every penny. I am a germ freak and I thought the rooms were very clean. The rooms are a little outdated but that seems to be most hotels in Maine. We loved our stay here so much that we stayed again on our back from Bar Harbor. I would definitely recommend staying here! There is also a resturant at the hotel. We went to breakfast twice and it was pretty good. The resturant also serves lobster at dinner but we didn't try it... Instead we walked a couple buildings down and had great dinners at Boothbay Lobster Warf. The hotel is in a great location.

I have to say that I was pleasantly surprised with Brown's Wharf Inn. The room was large and clean, the bed was extremely comfortable and the views were great! The staff was very accommodating and the restaurant was very good. All in all, I'd have to give this property an A+. It was just far enough from the main portion of town so that it remained quiet but a short walk should you wish to visit any of the shops or restaurants.

The place was very clean with a nice view of the Harbor. The restaurant was very good for dinner and breakfast. I had baked stuffed lobster for dinner and blueberry pancakes for breakfast and both were excellent. The staff was great too. We would go back again!

Brown's Wharf Inn was perfect for our family during our August 2012 visit to Maine. We spent three nights in a room with Harbor views. The rooms are basic, but very clean and our room seem newly renovated. The bathrooms are on the small side but we managed fine with two adults and two kids. The staff were friendly and helpful. The restaurant on site is very good. The walk to town is not bad and very doable even with children. We would certainly stay here again!
