Reviewed July 6, 2010

For 180.00 a night you could do better. The bathroom is right inside the door and the bath window vents and faces the walkway to the rooms. There is no exhaust fan in the bathroom which rivals an airplane bathroom in size. A large person will have trouble with the toilet and shower. I am 5'7" 140 lbs. and I kept hitting the wall in the shower trying to bathe. Even the toilet paper is narrower than a normal roll at 3 7/8 inches wide.
If you are a smoker stay away. There is no smoking in the room which is normal but while we were there they put no smoking signs on the on the balconies on the rear of the rooms that overlook the water.

Regular annual trip to Boothbay, and the folks at Brown's always make it relaxing and pleasurable. Great place to gather. Try dinner on the deck. Waterfront view is worth the small extra, but there are no bad views, even on the inner harbor side.

The Brown's Wharf Inn is the best kept secret in New England. The Inn is extremely clean and well kept. A waterfront 3 story with elevator and every room has a sliding door with balcony overlooking the water. The onsite restaurant is first rate and the food reminds me of eating at my grandparent's house as a child especially the turkey dinner. The meals are generous and moderately priced. The only way to get fresher Maine Lobstah is dive for it and cook it on the boat. The staff, Ken, Tim, and the whole Brown family, are by far the nicest folks you will ever meet. To summarize I have traveled all over the world for work and pleasure and The Brown's Wharf Inn is #1 on my list of destinations. I had to limit the length of my stay due to fear of over eating and gaining too much weight!

Although this hotel is a little pricey, it was worth it. We loved our balcony and the whole town! We left Boothbay and went to Bar Harbor. We wished we had stayed in Boothbay. What a great town!

Brown's Inn @ Boothbay Harbor is just lovely. The views on the cove side is just wonderful, and the rooms are quite comfortable. I can't say enough about the staff! They made us feel like long lost family returning home! I can't wait to return next summer.
P.S. The blueberry pancakes, out of this world!

My family has been staying at Brown's Wharf Inn for over 20 years. We absolutely love it! The views of the marina and harbor from the restaurant and room balconies is terrific. The management and staff are incredibly friendly and helpful. Breakfast and dinner are always delicious. It's also a quick walk over the footbridge to downtown, making the location very convenient.

We had booked 3 nights here and extended our stay an extra night-we would have stayed longer if they hadn't been fully booked for the weekend. Yes the bathroom is tiny, and yes it has a bit of a motel feel to it, but we just loved the view from our room, and location is so important. The restaurant is also excellent, although it is a pity breakfast is not included in the price. We were lucky enough to have perfect weather the whole time, so enjoyed the delights of Boothbay at its best.
