We stay here for one night on a road trip. We arrived at the hotel a little late, the front desk closes between 8:30-9 so we got a call around 8pm just making sure we were still planning to stay. When we arrived the man at the front desk was so nice, he even upgraded us to a room that overlooked the bay and had a nice patio door to the outside. He also gave us suggestions of places where we could eat because the town typically shuts down pretty early. The room was a regular size nothing spectacular, it also could have used a good clean. The beds and all were fine but I dropped something behind the bed and thought it could be a little cleaner but I wasn't grossed out or anything. We also got free breakfast the following morning which was an added plus, it was delicious, eggs, fruit, potato, bacon. There was also free wifi and parking. It was a great place to stay and I would stay there again for a night or two.

We enjoyed two nights at Boothbay and were delighted with the hotel and restaurant. I consider our harbor-view room the epitome of "common sense luxury" with plenty of horizontal surfaces, good reading light, reefer up on a cabinet so you don't have to stand on your head to grab the champagne, lots of space, good shower. We loved everything about Boothbay Harbor Inn, especially the location on the beautiful harbor.

Very happy with balcony room on main bldg. Staff and management was very friendly and accommodating. A great view that changes every moment with the changing light. Wish all the rooms had queen beds though. The room was very clean, however, with each day of room service, one thing or another was forgotten by the service person - toilet paper one day, picking up one of the garbage cans another day, and on the next to the last day no coffee was left, and it would have been nice to have had this before getting on the road the next morning. Daytime wait staff also should have cleaned up outdoor seating area from a previous night's gathering outside the bar. This was not done until 4pm when the bar was opening back up - the leftover plates, food, and napkins therefore attracted seagulls throughout the day and thus the seating area which is actually great- probably didn't impress newcomers who might just be arriving at hotel. (But this only occurred once.) Just a few tweaks with staff service and cleaning responsibilities would have made for an excellent rated review. I would definitely make a return visit. The view and the convenience of location are superb.

Room Tip: Call hotel and request a queen or king bed on the balcony of the main building for the best view.

What a great experience here. The hotel is older but quite up to modern standards. The room was exceptionally clean and up to date and the view of the bay was only feet away from our balcony. Do not however attempt to communicate with the outside world with an AT&T cell phone. They do not work. I was told that Verizon service is just fine however. The breakfast buffet was very good and the evening meals at the bayside restaurant on the first floor facing the bay were first rate. My wife and I would highly recommend this hotel and we plan to return here as soon as we can again.

Room Tip: Any second floor rooms that face the bay.

Very happy with the location. Had dinner across the bay. Beautiful hotel. Breakfast was very nice. Staff were very nice. Our room had a very hard bed. Everything else was great. Can't wait to go back!
