Thisw is a great location, on the water, near a walkway over the harbor to the town and many businesses. Good view of harbor with boats coming and going. Clean, neat rooms. No ref. or MV. Good food in restaurant. We are there at least once a year.

My husband and I on the spur of the moment... ran away!! We called to make reservations after researching on line. The desk clerk quoted a different price than what was on line. I told him what was listed on their site, and he said he did have a room at that price. It wasn't the one I thought, but... More

We enjoyed our stay and we're especially pleased with the location. The footbridge access to all restaurants and shopping was perfect. And being right on the water gave us wonderful sunsets. We were lucky in the weather that week, so it topped off a great week.

This was our 3rd annual trip to Boothbay Harbor and each time we have stayed at The Rocktide Inn. The front desk staff is very accommodating and efficient in getting our group of 30 - 40 people checked in quickly. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, we look forward to our return each year.

We were at the Rocktide for an off season wedding (Mid-September) and management had been alerted to this several months earlier. Since the event was at a nearby Island one of the local ferry boats was engaged to pick up guests at the hotel dock for the 30 minute boat ride. In spite of the early and fastidious planning the...

Be sure to book a room with the harbor view. The staff was so friendly and accommodating. The room we had booked was in the back and they upgraded us to one with a harbor view at no extra charge. The location was excellent and within easy walking distance to town. We were also able to take an island boat... More

loved staying here, the view from the room was stunning! Rooms very clean and pleasantly decorated. Easy walking access to town and free tram car if you don't want to walk. Breakfast was not bad.

Location was wonderful - we never moved the car & were able to walk to restaurants. The older lady at the front desk could use an attitude adjustment. The bar staff was super. The regular menu was nice but i'm glad that breakfast was free because it wasn't worth paying for. Their few steps for a 1st floor room was... More
