Anniversary spent there. Two tiny beds and very outdated not ideal for our occasion. Not much to do but eat around there. Front desk not open all night. Donuts, cereal and fruit in the morning. Clean. Beautiful view of the boats on the water in the morning!

Dear Erika, Thank you for reviewing our property. I am sorry that you felt that the beds were small. They are standard double size. It's a shame you did not request a king bed, or if you did , I am sorry we didn't have any available. We have King beds in our standard rooms, harborview rooms and waterfront rooms....

Great place, great location, great view, great staff. What else would you want. Stayed in 4 different locations during our 2 week Maine adventure. This was our favorite spot. Having a place to eat on the property was great, too.

We had a room with a view of the harbor. Loved the view! The staff here is outstanding! Very accommodating and helpful! Be sure to take advantage of going on one Cap'n Fish's cruises.

We were looking for some place near town, but not in town - and Cap'n Fish's worked. The room had a king bed, and small refrig. There were two indoor chairs, and two chairs on the balcony - both with a breathtaking view of Boothbay Harbor's outer harbor. One day my wife and friends went for a walk - I...

I only spent one night here, but it seems like a nice place. It's a small compound with several motel/hotel buildings as well as the restaurant/bar, docking areas, large parking lot, window boxes filled with geraniums and other flowers. Very clean, motel-style room with a small fridge and a coffee machine. Bathroom immaculate. In room wi-fi. Nice wide screen TV....

A bit out-dated in terms of decor and whatnot, but clean, and has the basic amenities you would expect from any hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The price is right.

This place is directly on the water and has beautiful views of the harbor. Very rustic lodging but clean. There are no elevators so if you do not like stairs request first floor.
