My wife and I spent a weekend in Boothbay and booked a room at Brown's Wharf Inn. The staff at the front desk were pleasant, but our room was not ready for check-in when we were told that it would be. We had to wait an hour before we were able to get into our room.
The room was nothing special. The bed was comfortable, but the bedding and decor were somewhat outdated. We booked an ocean view room, but because we were on the first floor, everyone who walked by on the deck, or sidewalk, or pier could see right into our room.
Our biggest disappointment was the location. Brown's Wharf Inn is on the opposite side of the harbor from the main downtown. To get to any of the restaurants, shops, art galleries, etc., it is a 15 minute walk from this location. There are a number of lodging options that are right in the downtown that we wished we had booked instead simply because of the location.
The price of Brown's is more than a number of other inns and hotels in the area. For the money we spent, we both felt we could have done much better.
