“Best possible location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

The location is directly across the harbor with a walking bridge across the harbor for easy access to the other side without driving. Nice rooms at a good price. Now is need 200 characters. Now I need 200 characters

The Boothbay Harbor Inn is a lovely inn directly on the harbor. We had a room with a nice balcony. The restaurant is very pleasant and the food was delicious. Our last morning, a sea gull sat on the rail just outside our door. After we went inside the room the gull moved and looked into the room where we were. It was a very pleasant experience and would go there again if I'm ever in Maine again.

Room Tip: Ask for a harbor front room. Probably because it was the end of the season, we were assigned to roo...

The hotel's location is fantastic .
We received a very nice big room facing the harbor with a trace.
Recommended if you get the rooms facing the harbor.

Nothing to say about the breakfast - very poor.

Lovely town and quaint hotel, with lovely views over the harbour.
Breakfast buffet was good and plentiful, evening meal a bit limited but Fine.
Very friendly staff and a location, we would probably come back to to see more of the coast.

Clif. We arrived 9/23/2012 monday. Accomodations were very nice and clean. It has best water views of Booth Bay harbor. Excellent harbor cruise included if arrive early. A chance to see seals and islands on the Harbor Princess. Motel is right next door to foot bridge, convenient to shops etc. Excellent time of year to visit, not crowded. Stayed another night later in the week on our way home from up north. Staff was very friendly and helpfull. Park and use foot bridge and avoid limited parking in town. Will definitely return. Best time of year. Very picturest. Best bargain in Booth Bay in my opinion. P.S. I always call motels direct for the best price instead of dot com sights.

Though this is an older hotel (no elevator and wall-mounted air conditioning), our room was very clean and quite comfortable. The small balcony provided a beautiful view of Boothbay Harbor--we're planning on returning simply so we have more time to enjoy the area! The foot bridge right next door provides the perfect walk into downtown Boothbay, and for those who prefer to drive, it is a 3-5 minute drive to reach the downtown. The staff was very friendly and helpful and our stay was all that we hoped it would be. Will definitely be returning.

Room Tip: Sounds carry to the second floor, so if you want very quiet rooms, staying away from the living room...

We arrived on Thurs. 9/20/2012 and we were registered. There are no elevators only stairs. Not to awful bad but a little taxing on the knees. ;)

The Inn is older than I thought but clean.. The staff were friendly. The food was ok but a little on the pricey side at the Inn, But over in the town prices were better.

Everything that you want to see or do and shop is a across the foot bridge from the Inn. You can drive around to the town which does not take long but, can only park for 2 hours at the parking spaces. I guess because of the turn-over of cars coming in.

You have one-way in and out. The Inn gave us a complimentry ticket for an hour and a half cruise to see the Ilands and the seals. That was a nice trip..

We found out that we could of had a cheaper rate had we called the Inn ourselves instead of booking thru Book.com. All in all it was ok.. For the room we had and all it was overpriced.

Room Tip: If you call the Inn yourself, you can have a cheaper rate with a room facing the whole harbor.
