We stayed here for 2 nights as part of a tour of New England. Our first impressions were of an attractive hotel in lovely surroundings overlooking the harbour. However on entering the reception area I was completely ignored by the middle aged man and woman on duty. I stood there awkwardly until the guy glanced up and merely said 'Checking...

It was not what I was expecting, but was very pleasant. There are steps. Lots and lots of steps....wooden steps. The room was very comfortable and clean. We were there at the "end of the season" for a wedding so I have no idea of what it would have been like earlier in the summer. The funny part was that...

Rocktide Inn is a great place to stay to have the best view of the town & harbor!! Watching the boats come & go!! BOOTHBAY harbor, Maine is my favorite place to visit!! This was our 2nd visit & we'd go back again! This Inn isn't posh or 1st class but we love our stays😊

This hotel looked good on the Tripadvisor site and the reviews seemed OK. It is on the "wrong side" of the harbor, but we understood that there was a footbridge across the water to access the main town on the other side. Upon arrival we found that the bridge was closed. Not the fault of the hotel, of course. What...

Clean. Could use some refurbishment. Convenient to town when the footbridge is open. Closes for the winter. Excellent hot breakfast with omlette station. Can't "not recommend" it, although there may be better choices in the area.

Stayed here one night in transit from Bar Harbor back to Portland for a flight. Very good views from the second floor rooms overlooking the harbor. Rooms not sensational, but not bad either. The bed, however, was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept on. Very soft mattress and pillows. Woke up early, though, to see sunrise and...

This hotel is situated next to the water and the views from our oceanfront room are beautiful. We have spent time on the balcony watching the lobstermen hauling traps in the bay and boats coming and going. It is a short walk to the heart of the village via the footbridge. Our room is clean and comfortable. The buffet breakfast...
