Our deluxe water view was actually a sliver of a view. We actually had a greasy smelly view of the building next door. As soon as we opened the door, flies swarmed in from the aforementioned next door! It was fine for a one night stop over in lovely Boothbay Harbor. Good shower pressure and soft towels. They also gave...

All hotels in Boothbay are "mom and pop" places, and this one is no different. It's made up of several buildings - we had a superior king which was recently renovated. Room 103. It had some hiccups, like a sticky door, a crooked toilet seat, and a broken screen door handle, but it did not affect our stay. Rooms 101,...

This is our second year hear. We had a harbor view deluxe room on the first floor. The room was newly remodeled and was quiet. The restaurant was truly wonderful. We never ate anywhere else. They provided entertainment during the 4-6 cocktail hour. The view on the deck is truly amazing

We booked the Rocktide Inn on our trip to Maine, expecting a comfortable, rustic type of Inn and that's just what we got. As a matter of fact, it was more updated than we expected. It appeared that new flooring had been installed, the furnishings looked new and the room had been recently painted. The color scheme was very white...

We stayed 3 nights at the Rocktide Inn in the month of June. Fantastic location, just a short walk to the footbridge and all the downtown shops and restaurants of Boothbay Harbor. Our room was clean, comfortable, but somewhat dated. The bathroom was a bit too small. We had a few drinks at the restaurant bar. The bartender was friendly...

The rooms were fresh and updated, comfortable mattresses and a little patio to overlook the harbor. Breakfast buffet was wonderful with many options and just a short walk over the footbridge and you are downtown.

My husband and I stayed one night in room 123, a superior water view room with King bed. The bed was fabulously comfortable and the bathroom was great with double sinks and a very large shower. The new furniture is already showing its age with marks and bubbling service particularly near the coffee pot. The view of the harbor was...
