I have stayed at this inn several times in the past 6 years. This time we had another wonderful time, great room with comfortable bed, and a lovely ocean view. The staff were courteous and welcoming. Attached restaurant had wonderful service and food.

This is my favorite hotel / restaurant in Booth Bay Harbor, Maine. We discovered this place during our last trip to Maine 4 years ago and had it on our "must go back" list for this trip to Maine. The place has been owned by the same family (the Browns) since sometime in the late 1940's or early 1950's. The...

My husband & I have been staying here for many years now, and have never been disappointed. Beautiful views of the harbor, which my husband & I enjoy very much. We especially enjoy sitting & watching the awesome sunsets! Friendly atmosphere & staff, clean rooms, and it's nice to have the restaurant right on the premises, which has a versatile...

We were very happy with the room we stayed in. It had a beautiful view of the harbor and a nice balcony where we could sit and enjoy the view with a drink. It was very comfortable and clean. You won't be disappointed.

We have been going to Boothbay Harbour for the past 6 years, the last 5 at Brown's Wharf. It is delightful. What a view! Watch the lobster boats coming and going and have fresh lobster for dinner. The rooms all have balconies facing the water. Some face the inner harbour, some across the harbour (our favourite). The rooms are spacious,...

Browns Wharf Inn was a great choice for our stay in Boothbay Harbor. The room was clean and comfortable but somewhat dated. We walked down to the boardwalk across the harbor to downtown which was a short but scenic walk. We got a kick out of sitting on our balcony and listening to the band a short distance away at...

Room was nice and clean, slightly dated but had a good view of the inner harbor. The building is old which is not a problem and its conveniently located. For the price I would rate it as average but not in a bad way. The bed was comfortable and on the firm side.

Nice clean hotel with good sized rooms. The views of the harbor were great and enjoying a glass of wine while watching the boats coming and going was delightful. The staff was very friendly and the location was good. While it was not right in the center of town, the walk via the footbridge was pretty easy. Would definitely stay...

Lovely place to stay. Stayed on the 2nd floor overlooking the harbor. Nice clean king room. Bed was better than the Marriott in Boston where we stayed two nights previously. The harbor view was worth the whole stay. Fantastic sunset pics from my deck. Staff was very nice and check-In was a breeze. Didn't eat at the restaurant as we...

We stayed here two nights on the cove side ( less expensive than the harbor side), but came down to the front porch each night to sit on rocking chairs sipping our wine and watching the beautiful sunset. We were here on a Friday night and the restaurant across the water was playing live music, so we enjoyed that too....
