Staff is terrific and oh-so friendly. Shout out to the front desk person who stayed late to check us in -- she even called us to ensure we hadn't gotten lost when we were well past our ETA! Beautiful location and a lovely lawn with Adirondak chairs - wonderful to sit and enjoy this spectacular view. Green Mountain K-cup coffee in the room, which is convenient, and very good coffee at the continental breakfast (included). The rooms are a bit dated, but everything was so clean - it more than made up for it. Wonderful!

RIght on the waterfront and close to everything. It's really nice but very basic. No wifi if you are not in the main building and even then it's pretty weak. Nice breakfast and a nice big lounge to sit in with wifi. Otherwise just a decent place to lay your head.

Room Tip: Try to get in the main building if you want wifi. Or an upstairs room for a better view. Can park in...

The location was spectacular. Right on the water. The staff bent over backwards to accommodate - even honored a harbor cruise for us for free even though the internet deal date had passed. AND we had THREE lobsters for $20 in their restaurant.

The staff, food and location were great! The complementary boat tour around the river was an unexpected surprise. We stayed for a long weekend and the first room had double beds w/o a water view. We upgraded to a room with a king bed and a beautiful view of the water so perfect. At night, the entertainment across the river was a very fun party. Thanks Boothbay!

I had been told recently that Boothbay Harbor should be on my "bucket list". I chose this Inn off the internet and was, for the most part, happy! The room had a stale smell, almost like they cleaned the carpet but didn't rinse it well enough...and the furniture and bedspreads were standard and somewhat outdated. But the staff is friendly and helpful, the restaurant on site very nice with great food and a beautiful view (especially at sunset!) There is a footbridge that connects you to town and you can leave your car parked at the Inn and amble all over this quaint village. It's absolutely delightful! Just wish it wasn't almost 4 hrs. to drive here! Will be returning!

We were vacationing in the White Mountains when the weather turned on us. Overcast and rainy for 2 days. We decided to head over to a sunnier spot. We stumbled upon Boothbay and read reviews about the Boothbay Harbor Inn. We booked a room at midnight the night before and we couldn't be happier with our decision!

It was sunny and in the 80's there. We arrived an hour before check-in and was pleasantly surprised to find out that not only was our room ready, we got a room upgrade too! We had a room with a beautiful balcony view of the harbor. We got a complimentary 1.5 hour cruise around the harbor. The front desk staff was extremely helpful and welcoming.

After 4 days of being in the White Mountains hiking and tubing, this place was a luxury! I enjoyed the aromatic complimentary soaps and shampoo. The balcony was so relaxing at night. When the kids went to bed, my husband and I sat out and listened to the music coming from the pier. (For one night, I was ok with leaving the world of WiFi.)

We will definitely come back again!

Very cooperative and nice staff, Wonderful atmosphere with fantastic views of Boothbay harbor. Be sure to take a harbor cruise and perhaps some whale watching while you're there. The access is very easy with adequate parking available.
