“Quaint, clean and convenient to town”
Reviewed September 4, 2012

My family needed only a one night (Saturday, 9/1/12) of Labor Day weekend. Midtown was the only Boothbay Harbor site that would accommodate us. The motel is exactly as advertised--50's classic, no wi-fi, no AC--and it was great. Tim, the owner was friendly and helpful. He even let us leave our car on site AFTER we checked out. It was less than a 2 block walk to the center of town. The room was small but immaculate! If you're looking for a 5 star luxury hotel, don't stay here. But if you want to take a trip back in time and enjoy the simpler things you must stay at this motel!!

Room Tip: I think there is only 12 rooms or so, any of which are good with parking right in front of your room...

Midtown Motel is simply charming - a beautifully well-kept 50s retro-look accommodation, with pretty little touches like the flower pots and hanging basket, which really make it special. The rooms are just the right size to be comfortable and affordable, and and Tim the owner is just lovely - helpful and accommodating, and chatty, just to the right degree. It's a few minutes walk from all shops and the harbour, so you can just leave your car at Midtown while you go sightseeing. We sometimes come over from England on a bit of a budget to visit friends all along the East Coast, and we look forward to staying at Midtown in the delightful Boothbay Harbour as a highlight of our journey.

Room Tip: Just discuss with Tim - he's so helpful, he'll make sure you get a room suited to your needs...

This basic "50's" motel is clean, conveniently located, and a very good value. But what sets it apart is the gracious friendliness of the proprietor, Mr. Lewis. I was a bit dazed upon arrival, and he promptly set us at ease with his accommodating demeanor, helpful suggestions for dining, and genuine friendliness.

The owner of the Mid-Town Motel was very pleasant and helpful, suggesting restaurants and local attractions. The motel is 1950 style, and it seemed that the mattresses haven't been changed since then. The bathrooms are very small and had a musty smell, but were clean. If you are just staying a couple of days, this motel would be okay, but I couldn't last more than that. The location is nice, just a couple of blocks from the bay and small shopping area.

Well like everyone else has noted the owner is very friendly. Rooms were clean, bathrooms small. A few minutes walking distance to the center of Boothbay. I would stay again. A no frills motel.

The owner is incredibly friendly and helpful. Location on top of a hill above the town makes for a quiet place to relax on the porch chairs. Very old-fashioned decor, but we thought it was delightful.

We had to cancel our reservations six hours before arrival and when phoning the owner, Timothy Lewis, I was met with the kindest approach and offered a full refund. This is not always the case.

We are planning on a trip to Boothbay again and will definitely frequent this motel.
