Mid-Town Motel

Reviewed September 18, 2010

A spur of the moment decision to go to Boothbay Harbor had me checking all the typical travel sites for accomocations and to compare prices. After findinging nothing less than $100 ( most were closer to $130. and up) after Labor Day we decided to wing it and see what we could find on our own. Got off the waterfront & went up the hill just past the Boothbay Fire Dept & saw the Mid-town Motel which advertised itself as a classic 50's motel. It was perfect at $75. ($85 in season I believe) offering 2 bars of soap, a spotless bathroom and pine paneled small room with bureau, 2 night stands, chair & tv. We rarely spend much time in the room and were able to enjoy the 3 minute walk down to the shopping & restaurants, marinas & boat tours and all the wonderful shopping that Boothbay has to offer. If you don't need fluff & frills but enjoy talking to a knowledgeable host with great recommendations then you would enjoy the Mid-town and the savings that go with it.

Not overly expensive (as in cheap) and clean. The rooms are cute and have the obligatory bathroom, T.V., side chair and bureau. But there is a real charm to this place. The owner - manager is friendly and it is a short walk to town. The bathroom is not luxurious, but it is clean. I really liked this place and will stay there again.

We always stay here when we go to Boothbay Harbor. Tim the owner is very , very nice and always ready to offer any advice and tips about the area and has never steered our group wrong. Midtown Motel doesn't appologize for its retro style and appearance, it's just plain comfortable and the owner over the years has become like family to us. Very charming. We will always go back there.

I enjoyed this place. It's a very short walk to downtown without having to pay waterfront prices. It is definitely an older property, very little has been updated, but it was very clean and well cared-for. Only downsides was that we couldn't find a way to control the temperature in the room short of opening the window, and the shower was kind of low-flow. But I would have no qualms about staying there again.

My boyfriend and I visited Boothbay Harbor for a quick get-away. Most of the Inns in the area are quite expensive, so I was happy to find the Mid-Town Motel. It is very close to downtown Boothbay and convenient to other destinations in the area. The rooms are cute and clean. Our room wasn't overly spacious, but I found it quite cozy. As an earlier reviewer noted, the decor has a rustic feel. The rooms are missing some of the extras other motels have (hairdryer, coffee maker, wifi), but what it lacks in amenities it makes up for in charm. The owner was very nice and friendly. He recommended some local restaurants for us to try and gave us a map to help us get around. I would stay here again if I was in the Boothbay Harbor area.

The Mid-Town Motel advertises as a "true 1950's classic" -- and they're not lying. It definitely has classic style -- it is a cute little motel where you drive up and park right outside your door. The furniture is simple and somewhat rustic, little wooden tables and a dresser, and a small tv. But, like 1950s motels, the rooms are pretty small and the bathroom is quite tiny. The walls are thin, too, so if you're a light sleeper, bring earplugs.

On the plus side, it has an awesome location -- about a three minute walk into town. It's clean, inexpensive, the beds were comfortable, and the owner is very friendly and doesn't hesitate to recommend things to do and places to eat. (He recommended the Boathouse Bistro & Tapas Bar, which was very good -- delicious lobster & leek crepes!).

This is a real old-fashioned American experience. A motel right in Boothbay Harbor, clean, friendly, attractive. You can walk to the shops and restaurants. Knotty pine paneling....I love it! Have stayed here twice now.
