We arrived late and left early neither was a problem. We had a water view, which was beautiful. Room was standard, 2 full beds, full tub w shower in the bathroom! Great water pressure and hot. Room was clean. No evidence of any animal staying there before. q Did not participate in their breakfast because the restaurant on the dockside...

Thank you for your very positive review. It is always exciting for us to see that a guest has given us a five star rating! I am glad that you and your pet were comfortable. We have a limited number of pet friendly rooms, so advance reservations are key to making sure that your pet can join you. We hope...

Made a reservation for two, verified via several emails, but when I checked in they tried to charge me for three people, so pay attention. I was expecting two double beds, but got one double and one twin. Warning - no elevator. Wifi didn't work and the ladies at the desk don't know anything about technology or resetting modems or...

Hi. Thank you for taking time to review our property. I am sorry for the confusion with your reservation. Your original reservation made in January was for two Harborview rooms, 3 adults and 1 child (one room 2 Adults, one room 1Adult, 1 Child). One room was to be a king, the other two double beds. In February you called...

Loved this place!!! I had a room with two beds, a fridge, coffee pot and a view of the harbor as well!!! All this for $99/night!!! Great bargain. It's close to the footbridge so the Harbor is just a little walk away. There were also three restaurants right on this side of the harbor. The staff was very friendly and...

We had a pleasant stay here in one of the second story rooms. Unfortunately we did not have a refrigerator what was hard be because it was hot. Rooms were clean and comfortable though. The view of the harbor was spectacular. It was close to the footbridge which leads you into Boothbay. Not so much to see on this side....

We've stayed here twice now (once in 2008 & again in Aug. 2014). Had a great stay both time's. Clean rooms, good price and of course you can't beat the area. Nice walk over to the town and great boat tours. The restaurant on the premises serves a great breakfast too! Love Booth Bay and next time we come we...

My wife and I have stayed at four different places in Booth Bay Harbor. After our first stay at Cap'n Fish's we stayed no where else. We spent the first week of September 2014 in Maine with a two nights stay at Cap'n Fish's. I captured, on my camcorder, what was probably the greatest sunset I've ever seen from the...

We have been going to Boothbay Harbor for over 20 years. Cap'n Fish's is my favorite place to stay! The view is spectacular and in just a short scenic walk over the footbridge you are in the downtown area with access to restaurants and shopping. There is a great little dockside restaurant on the property.

Whenever we are in the Boothbay area we stay at this hotel. The hotel is across the walking bridge from the hustle of town. The rooms are very clean and the wireless worked perfectly. There is a place for meals near the water. We will be back.

On our recent vacation to Maine we were just lucky enough to come upon Cap's Fish's Waterfront Inn! We loved this place :) It was right on The Bay and the first thing we heard in the morning was seagulls! It was great! A footbridge 5 minutes away took you right into the town of Boothbay. Lots of restaurants within...

I love Maine. I have gone to Maine every year since the early 1990's most of the times we would rent a house since there were 4 or 5 people. A few times we came to Maine on senior bus trips and we always stayed at CAPn FISH'S WATERFRONT INN. As we get older things slow down. I haven't been...
