We booked our Honeymoon actually in 2010 here, been coming to Southwest Harbor for years but there was no vacancy where we stay as it is a time share. So we stayed rightn on the water, Queen unit split level and just loved the balcony and cozyness of the room. Staff are so kind and it was just so relaxing. We didn't have to drive anywhere walked back and forth to stores and restaurants. Didn't eat on the property but the food looked amazing just chose to spend more money on the room and other things.

Room Tip: Water Views!!

The Boothbay Harbor Inn is a relatively old property built perhaps in the 1960's or 1970's. The exterior is somewhat institutional-looking, but the look is lifted through the use of flowering plants in tubs and hanging baskets on the balconies. The rooms are clean and comfortable, but pretty standard; the bathrooms appear to be freshly redone. All this being said, simple, but clean accommodations are to be expected in Maine resort towns. I was assigned to room #110, a moderately sized double-double on the first floor with a sliding glass door leading to a small terrace with a table and two chairs. Though neighbors were on either side, the room was reasonably soundproof. Air conditioning works well; water pressure is good; towels were clean, fluffy, and plentiful; and hanging space for clothing was more than adequate. A lot of television stations were available...perhaps 50 or so.

The real charm of this hotel is its location at the end of the footbridge leading to the town's commercial district, about a three to four-minute walk. Occupants of the hotel have views of the harbor from most rooms. Some face front and others face the foot bridge. Both views are sensational. The hotel has its own dock where we had one one of Captain Fish's boats pick up our group for a private tour of the harbor and surrounding islands. We all found the hotel dock very convenient.

Another plus is a charming restaurant in the hotel. Windows on the Harbor has been around for a long time under various names. The restaurant is also simply decorated, but has dim lighting and Kevin at the piano for added ambiance. The chef is quite talented and offers a selection of Maine seafood, steaks, salads, and starters. I dined at the hotel one evening and enjoyed a plate of steamed clams as a starter, a house salad, and a trio of baked haddock, shrimp, and scallops with buttered panko crumb topping. All were well-prepared and service was friendly.

All in all, I'd say that for a Maine summer resort, this place is just fine. You have the combination of clean and comfortable accommodations, a good restaurant, free parking, and easy access to town. I recommend!

Nothing special. Needs some upgrades as the age of the facility shows. Very clean, decent price and spectacular location. I wouldn't recommend but I wouldn't not recommend either.

Needed handicap access w/roll-in shower. Called me on cell phone to tell me of sudden availability. Restaurant very nice with water view. Close to downtown shops.
