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.

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.

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.

Enjoy spectacular harbor views, a menu full of fresh seafood and delicious dishes to tease the taste buds, and the On the Rocks Lounge at the Rocktide Inn & Restaurant. Situated on the water on the east side in beautiful downtown Boothbay Harbor, the Rocktide has been a landmark in the harbor since 1968. Enjoy hot popovers with every meal, and one of the finest selections of house wine and liquor to be found on the water. Enjoy good times and great food at the Rocktide Inn & Restaurant.
