The view and the quiet area were wonderful. We enjoyed Boothbay area. For the price the room was great. Good eating options close by. We went on a whale watch arranged by staff on Cap'n Fish's whale watch boat. Nice discount on the whaloe watch for staying at this motel. Saw whales, seals and big sunfish.

Cap'n Fish's Waterfront Inn had definite good points and a few not so good. It has a great view and is located directly on the waterfront on the quiet side of Boothbay Harbor. The nearby footbridge takes you directly into town and shops. The bed was very comfortable and the bathroom was clean. But it was in a rather shabby...

This place was fabulous. The room we got had two full beds and a bath. It had a harbor view. I have no complaints. The parking was good. Easy walking distance to everything in Boothbay Harbor. We ate at the restaurant here one morning and the breakfast was good. We sat down by the docks at night and listened to...

Having staying at another inn down Atlantic Avenue for several years, we were anxious to try out something different. The hosts are a very pleasant couple, who gave us a room on the second-floor level. The room itself was comfortable and was equipped with a spacious bathroom. It had a convenient fridge and coffee maker and a small, discretely placed...

Cap’n Fish’s is an affordable setting in a town where amenities are not necessarily cheap. Luxury accommodations and the quaint B&B can be found anywhere around, but Cap'n Fish's offered a room with a view and a discount to Cap’n Fish’s whale watching tours. Our room was clean but expectedly dated and the staff was accommodating and friendly. Our harborside...

Well, I was a little cautious initially about booking at this hotel. But after my arrival my feelings were quickly relieved. First off this place is not the Ritz, however its clean, tidy and well located in one of my favorite places Boothbay Harbor. My only issues are the following: I arrived late well after 11pm on a Friday night...

We stayed two nights. Inn is dated but very comfortable with lots of room for two people to spread out. Wi-Fi is good and hooking up is almost automatic. It's an 8 minute easy walk to the shops and piers. The value is very good.

I booked this Inn for my wife and myself 50th wedding anniversary. Thew Inn is what I expected for seasonal rentals. The rooms were neat and cleaned daily. The hosts were very helpful booking boat tours and telling us useful places to visit and shop. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

First of all when you come to Cap'n Fish's step back and look at the gorgeous harbor view..just breathtaking! The hotel cannot be compared to the Hilton, but it has a lot of character and charm. The room is small and is very clean and comfortable. The price was $89.00 and we stayed for one night and loved it! The...
