Can't say enough about this place. Room great, very cosy bed and spotlessly clean. Breakfast was the best especially the made to order omelettes and the blueberry cake! All staff very helpful. The complimentary toiletries were very nice quality. Made our trip!

The view was excellent, the updated room was like modern chic meets Maine cottage. They have done a very nice job with updated rooms and bedding. The room is clean well appointed. Did not use the pool. Free buffet breakfast with fresh omelet station was great value. The bar in on the bay so excellent views with easy walk over... More

The Rocktide Inn is very attractive, conveniently located, and well kept. The Staff is very helpful and courteous. The Breakfast was excellent, as well! We would definitely stay there again! Note: No fridge in our room, in case that's important to you.

We have been going to Boothbay since 1977. Our Honeymoon. Have been staying at the Rocktide Inn for the last 7 years. Breakfast Buffet is nicely done. We use the Fall Special prices. A real bargain and walking distance to all shops,eaterys and bars. Always champagne and balloons for our Ann.

We spend Columbus Day weekend at The Rocktide Inn and had a very enjoyable stay. Starting right from our check in we got a very warm welcoming feeling from the staff that continued throughout the stay. The hotel location is super convenient to the downtown area via a short walk over the harbor on the footbridge which allows great access... More

This hotel has a nice view from the restaurant/bar and some rooms. The standard room has NO view and is tucked away by the road. Our room was in the main building so we had access to the veranda that overlooks the harbor. The room itself--- purely generic room. Motel 6 has it beat. The bathroom door sticks, the bathroom...

One of the best hotel lobbies anywhere, with many model ships and artifacts from the sea. The hotel restaurant was awesome with a great breakfast included and dinner with popovers that were out of this world. A great place to stay only a footbridge away from the hubbub of Boothbay Harbor. I will definitely stay at Rocktide again.

Everything went smooth during checkin, the rooms were nicely renovated and had a good view. The downside was how much sound seemed to travel through the door. We could hear everyone coming and going. Location was very good. Close to the foot bridge to get into downtown or walk down the street to other restaurants. Breakfast was basically identical everyday... More

The Rocktide Inn is truly a gem and should be explored. Wonderful inviting staff. The rooms are aged but for the price you shouldn't complain. The morning breakfast is delicious and very filling. You can't beat the sunrise view of the harbor while dining. The inn is perfectly located for shopping and dining. I have visited and stayed in many... More
