When I made the reservation, the clerk said, "One night? You will wish you stayed longer!" She was absolutely right! We are not 'high-dollar' travelers; we want a good value and clean, comfortable and well-maintained accommodation. This place met our needs and then some. Highly recommend for folks on a bit of a buget who want a neat place, with...

Dear Steve, Thank you for reviewing our property. I would like for the readers to have a clear view of why there was a mix up with your room.

Just returned from a three night stay at Cap'n Fish's. I have to say that this is one of the cleanest motels that we have ever stayed in. The view is fantastic, the staff is super friendly, and the the location is perfect. A quick walk over the footbridge puts you in the heart of all restaurants and shops. This...

This hotel has an excellent location- right on the harbor but across from the downtown area making it very peaceful. It is also near to the walking bridge to get across the harbor to downtown. Although it is an older hotel and a little dated, it is very clean and well maintained. The staff was helpful with all requests. There...

Dear guest, Thank you so much for your review. I am glad you were pleased with most everything. I am sorry that you found the mattress too firm. We use Serta Perfect Sleeper mattresses (commercial line) that are specifically used by hotels. Most people find them comfortable, but Of course, everyone has different levels of comfort.

This hotel was very clean and VERY quiet. Beds were firm and the view of the harbor/marina was beyond fantastic. Clerks were friendly. Breakfast was okay; adequate. Pillows were so-so. But for our first 2 nights in the state, this was ideal. Had delicious clam chowder at the nearby restaurant the first night.

This really cool old school motel was just perfect for us. I absolutely sits on the harbour and your view is full of sailboats, lobster trap bouys, and pleasure boats sitting on beautiful waterfront. The staff is extremely helpful and pleasant and the restaurant sitting on the dock is GREAT.

We enjoyed harbor watching, walking the area, and most of all the deck sitting waiting for the sunset. Rooms were adequate, staff was helpful. Restaurant on site delivered tasty eggs Benedict on the harbor deck.

Thank you for your review. I am glad you enjoyed your stay. I agree that the sunset is definitely worth waiting for. Not sure if you had the regular Eggs Benedict or the Lobster Eggs Benendict......both are scrumptious! I hope that you are able to visit us again in the future.

The view, the service and a clean and comfortable room all add up to a great value in Boothbay Harbor. Very friendly atmosphere and helpful front desk. A definite plus is the deck above the lobby where you can watch the sunset over the harbor.
