My second time in this hotel. Decent breakfast; lovely town; quaint shops; excellent restaurants nearby. However, I didn't know that our room was going to be in an inconvenient location on the second floor of the annex. No elevator. No windows. Beds didn't look freshly made; toilet needed service. Wi-Fi service was minimal.

We found this Inn to be substantial. The location was excellent. Right in the heart of everything. The food in the restaurant was excellent. It was clean. However they advertise it as luxurious... nothing in the room could be described with that in mind. The small refrigerator was on the floor, the microwave on the small table so it could... More

This restaurant has a great location, a mediocre kitchen, and an excellent piano player. I understand he plays only occasionally. Call ahead. If Kevin Kiley is playing, make reservations. If not, there are better kitchens nearby.

We spent two nights at the Boothbay Harbor Inn and and found the Inn to be all that we expected. We were greeted warmly by the young man at the reception desk (I'm trying to remember his name!) He even got our room cleaned early so we could check in early. The room was attractive and comfortable, with good bedding... More

Comfy, clean rooms with all the amenities. We loved walking out of our room to sit at oceans edge. Nice short walk to everything. The staff was wonderful. We were all like family before we left and because of this great experience we plan on returning again in the Fall. The Inn offered a nice hot breakfast buffet and dinner... More

My friend and I really enjoyed staying here. The people were so friendly and accommodating. The location was perfect and we had an excellent view. Breakfast was a little disappointing, not hot enough, but most buffets aren't. All in all, I would certainly recommend staying here if you are visiting Boothbay!

We took a ride along the coast and decided to spend the night in Boothbay Harbor. We looked around for lodging and Boothbay Harbor Inn was just across the footbridge from us- so we checked it out. Paul was awesome- he gave us keys to a couple of different rooms to check out. We decided on an ocean view second... More

Great location and accommodations. The staff was extremely courteous and made you feel like family. Perfect walking distance to everything. I am a very discriminating business traveler, across three continents, and I tell you this is a great value. The rooms are immaculate and the facility is maintained well. We will be back!

We had a beautiful view of the harbor and we could walk to the town by the foot bridge right next to the hotel. There is a free breakfast included, but I suggest visitors try the quaint cafes in town.
