“Wonderful location & people”
Reviewed 20 July 2012

My husband and I spent two weeks in Maine, first in Bar Harbor area then the last 4 days in Boothbay Harbor. Besides the unbelievable view from this Inn we had perfect weather and a very relaxing time. The hotel staff is amazing and super friendly, right down to the wonderful women and young men that clean the rooms. We had a top level room that over looks the Harbor, stunning at sunset. The rooms are not huge and brand new, but very clean and comfortable (cozy). The outdoor decks and chairs located all over the Inn are perfect for hanging out, drinking and watching the sunset. They also accommodated our truck and trailer which had our motorcycles inside. Restaurants are close by and the shopping area and town was a quick walk over the Harbor walkway. Excellent location and great time. They also offer boat trips which we did one afternoon and spotted whales. The Dockside Restaurant at the end of their property was good, 3 lobsters for $20...unreal. I disagree with someone else’s previous comment on the restaurant...we ate there a lot and enjoyed the ALWAYS fresh food and delightful wait staff. We will definitely return.

Room Tip: You have to request King size beds as they do not have many rooms with them. Also this hotel has 3 P...

My husband and I usually stay at large chain hotels, so we were a little nervous about staying at a small hotel for the first time in many years. We need not have been. I felt relaxed as soon as we pulled in the parking lot. It's true the rooms are simple but I found them to be just right. Our room was #7 and very clean. The bedspreads looked brand new. I found the bed & pillows comfortable and the sheets better quality than I've had in much more expensive hotels. I loved the location - so peaceful and quiet but only a few minutes walk to the other side of the harbor where the majority of restaurants and activities are. Most of all I was impressed with the employees - all were sincerely kind and genuinely interested in our stay being a nice as possible. And it was! Thank you!!!

Stayed one night (very clean room, comfortable bed) overlooking the scenic harbor. Staff was so helpful and friendly - my mother is handicapped and they gave us a room near a ramp, also offered to help with luggage and notified me of an item I left behind. Good location near restaurants, galleries, shops and not far from Barrett's Park which we have become enchanted with. Would recommend highly if you're looking for a hotel by the water with beautiful views and reasonable rates.

Room Tip: Best rooms are overlooking the harbor.

We were there one night on a stopover. The front desk staff are tops, but they did recommend the Dockside Restaurant and although inexpensive, the lobster was sub-par, orders mixed up, etc. The rooms are small. Generally clean but we found an unused Breath Right nasal strip on the floor next to the bed, pretty much in plain sight. The AC is noisy so if you are a light sleeper bring ear plugs. The price was right, but if we came back for more than a day we would pay a bit more for a nicer place.

Second stay this summer and won't be our last. Our first stay was not planned as we had our boat and dog however, they are pet friendly and have dockage. Room was clean and the staff went above and beyond to accomodate us. Our second stay was planned however, our boat broke down on the way in. It was afer 11:00 pm when we finally docked. The staff had our keys and directions to our rooms all enveloped for us. In the a.m. we were assisted by staff to help find a part for our boat. I will and have recommended Cap'n Fish's to all.
