The rooms were large, the beds extreme my comfortable. Location on the harbor was perfect. An enjoyable walk across the footbridge to town was Great and made staying at the Hotel quiet and peaceful. Staff was not quite ready for Memorial Day weekend but tried their best. Friendly staff willing to help. Great pricing too. We will return.

Don't let the lack of ambiance in the lobby and hallway areas deter you, the rooms are nice and the views are wonderful. Located across the harbor from the hustle and bustle of "downtown" Boothbay and right next to the footbridge that will take you to town in 5-10 minutes. Rooms have all the amenities of a motel in order...

This is by far a fancy place. Thats the beauty of it for me. Clean and comfy and a view over looking the little village was amazing. The breakfast buffet was as wonderful. This was my absolute favorite place to stay in the 10 nites of stay touring Maine. We went back to spend another nite or two but they...

We paid a bit extra for a harbour view room and definitely worth the money as you can sit on your balcony and enjoy the view. The hotel is across the river from the main area of town but that is an advantage and only a short walk across a footbridge anyway. We actually used the restaurant in the evening...

The hotel is older and could use a little sprucing up. Consider the price and other hotels in BB Harbor and this is a good deal. We had a view of the harbor and appreciated the small balcony. The linens (bed and bath) and amenities were first rate. We found a single dirty sock on the baseboard under the desk....

The good the bad the average and the wow! Location is Incredible! Parking is very easy- and the Inn is easy to find- love that you can walk to the other side of the harbor for restaurants!

Great location, fabulous views but decor in the hotel was very tired. Cleaning staff seemed to be minimal, hence room was quite dusty. Good to have fridge and coffee making facilities in room. Breakfast average but nice to be offered something. Disappointed that restaurant was closed for dinner for season. Paul very welcoming and carried cases upstairs for us but...

I was a bit disappointed when we arrived. I felt like the pictures made it look better. It needs some updating, but we weren't there for the room. The location is great! It's close to footbridge that crosses the very inner harbor to town - shops and restaurants. Great view from deck! Breakfast was nice.

Since I live here, I am writing about the dining room. Call me old fashioned, but the BHI's dining room is now the only place in the Harbor where someone can enjoy a quiet and/or romantic evening with perfectly balanced, live piano music setting the mood and relaxing the soul. There are other places to eat and, if you have...
