This place is a gem!! Got a superior 2 room, second floor great view and balcony, beds comfy, dated but clean👍1 complaint, toilet was tiny, felt like you were on the floor 😂😂, no daily service but have no problem making my own bed, or hanging my towels, lack of help like everywhere else! But the staff was very friendly, there is a footbridge next to inn that connects to town, no car needed 👍shops, restaurants, cruises.. can’t wait to go back
Paid $185 a night. The bathroom was severely outdated. The room was also dated, mini fridge was very mini and sitting on the floor. The deck overlooking the harbor was safe but in need of some TLC, very run down. With some decent renovations I would consider returning but would prefer to take my business elsewhere. Good thing there was a lot to do in the area. Will be more selective next time when booking a stay. The “free” breakfast was nothing I would want to have eaten. The coffee was sub par.
My second visit here and I enjoyed it every bit as much as the first. The staff is wonderful. Our room was just what we needed for our brief stay in Boothbay Harbor. A short walk to the famous footbridge and the whole town is there to explore. I'll definitely plan a third visit if my travels plans carry me in that direction again.
We visited Glen Cove on the way to see family and only stayed one night but would definitely return and stay longer. It was spotlessly clean, very comfortable, great breakfast selection and really helpful staff
The location and the fire pit overlooking the harbor was the only thing about this hotel that was worth it. We stayed in room 233 in the annex building at the Boothbay Harbor Inn. To say that the room was unfit would be an understatement. To start with, the screen door on the room couldn't be locked and in order to get air into the room we had to leave it ajar. There was one window that couldn't be opened and the air conditioner in the room was conservatively 30 years old and smelled when it was turned on and didn't cool the room at all. I don't think that the room was dusted in about three weeks. There was mold growing in the bathroom sink, there were dead bugs in the bathroom light fixture, an electric socket that had 4 items plugged in with an adapter, the tv remote could only be used to turn the tv on and off - you couldn't change channels (I guess that it needed batteries) , and new sheets haven't been seen in this room in a very long time. Our friends stayed in room 229 and they had a similar situation. It seems as if this whole building should be shut down and redone.…
. . .but not sure if I would recommend. Room was 1st floor at end of hall, facing harbor (111 or 112 do not remember). Lucky to get this superior room with a good $ discount because it was off season. Truly enjoyed walking into town and views from patio. The free breakfast was dismal so after juice/coffee, it meant a walk into town where we found 2 excellent places for breakfast. I have traveled most of the world and am quite accustomed to "continental" breakfast - even just juice, coffee, muffin or roll/butter/jam. Here it was the quality of the muffin/donut: not unlike the old-fashioned twinkies or devil dogs. Absolutely not edible!! Too bad they could not offer guests a freshly baked Maine blueberry muffin? Cold cereal and yogurt is fine, but it is customary everywhere to offer bananas for the Cheerios. Not one in sight. Mattress too soft. If you prefer firm, this will be a problem. Inn is a bit outdated. Customer service was great! :-) I changed our reservation dates once; was treated with kindness. ALL front office staff could not have been more helpful; true Maine hospitality from all. Would I recommend this inn? Depends on who is asking me.…
Great location on the harbor; walkable to the shops and restaurants via a bridge connected to the property. Staff is very friendly. When I requested for someone to come to the room for some instructions on how to use a device, a staff member appeared within a couple of minutes. Shower with plenty of hot water, plenty of towels and bathroom amenities. Bathroom lighting is great for shaving or putting on cosmetics. Bed is comfy. Breakfast is continental, but sufficient. ...definitely a place you'd like to stay in while visiting Maine.
Very good, reasonably priced hotel on the harbor. Free breakfast. Footbridge to walk to town. Rooms were adequate and clean. Plenty of nice places you can walk to for dinner. Great place to stay if you have spent the day at the Maine Botanical gardens in Boothbay, it's just a short drive away.
I wanted to give a 3 and 1/2 stars, but gave 4, because can’t do halves. They have a great location across the pedestrian bridge on the bay side, overlook the harbor side. That creates an opportunity for watching beautiful sunsets from your balcony or patio , so make sure to pay extra for that waterfront room OR simply come out to sit on one of several benches to watch it. Our king size bed was comfortable — firm mattress and good pillows. At the time when Delta infections are rising, they unfortunately do not require their employees to wear masks (or guests in public areas) — very irresponsible behavior! They use Covid, though, as an excuse to not clean your room while you stay and it was just fine with us. We don’t want unmasked people in our room. Our a/c did not generate any cold air. Their breakfast is just pitiful. But there are great breakfast places around that you want to try anyway. We would recommend to stay there because of the location and comfortable beds.…
Boothbay Harbor Inn has amazing views for an affordable price. The room was clean and fresh smelling. There was a small porch with two chairs and a side table overlooking the Harbor. The bed was comfortable. Room darkening curtains allow you to sleep in if you so choose. If you decide to rent a suite on the second floor be sure you can carry the luggage up the stairs as there is no elevator. The hotel receptionist was kind, helpful and welcoming. There is coffee, tea, donuts and a variety of cereal choices available free with the room rental.
