The hotel rooms are not super fancy but they are clean and well appointed. We love the convenience of their bountiful breakfast and the convenience of walking downtown. It is well run with very attentive staff.

The breakfast, included with our room, was adequate but not very flavorful. Served as a buffet, the wait staff did not seem interested in assisting us. Most of the staff stood around talking to each other, occasionally sitting with guests and chatting, and having breakfast themselves in the dining room. It seemed rather unprofessional. The room was adequate, but certainly... More

Ate here twice during our visit to Boothbay Harbor and it was excellent. Wife had an 8oz fillet that was as good as she'd had anywhere, and that includes Ruth's Chris. Her steak came with a lobster claw. I had the champaign lobster and again it was very good. Restaurant is a little pricey, but then none of the eateries... More

We ate here as it was close to our hotel and claimed to be a fine dining destination. Our server Theresa was a star and we had a fine meal after a rocky start. Upon arrival we informed the hostess that we didn't have reservations but would love to dine there. We got the snarky reply of "I'll see what... More

Beautiful hotel with awesome restaurant! Seafood platter is enough for 2 people! Cocktail hour offers responsible drinks and half price appetizers either inside or out on the deck overlooking the bay. Love to watch the sunsets.

We had an excellent dinner with scallops and a salmon salad. Also had two breakfasts at their extensive buffet. Great cooked-to order omelettes.

I arrived at 8:20pm on my first night, and I was hungry. I was told the restaurant closes at 8:30pm! Had to suspend check-in to go eat first, as I was tired and did not want to wander around in the dark looking for a meal elsewhere. That being said, the dinner was excellent. The breakfast buffet provided is also... More

Don't stay here unless you like struggling up flights of stairs with heavy luggage. Our "view of the harbor" was the front of the Boothbay Harbor Inn.........no view of the water from our room! As promised! Terrible experience

We ate dinner here and found the decor, food and service to be just ok. Nothing wrong but nothing special for the prices.
