A dear friend and I stayed here for 4 nights the end of June. It was so quiet and beautiful. Yes the room was basic but very clean. I brought a small coffeemaker and hair dryer along. As we were there to relax it was very nice. If you are looking for a basic place to sleep and relax, I highly recommend the Ship Ahoy motel.

Room Tip: Second floor for nest view, we stayed on first floor and it was fine

Location, views and proximity to harbor is unmatched. As other reviewers note, this hotel has basic amenities and low overhead making it very affordable. Our extended family has been coming here for years and the "retro-experience" is part of what we look forward to. If you are looking for a 4 Seasons Resort type experience, this is not for you. As a quiet, affordable home-base on Southport Island with great views and accessibility to Boothbay and other spots this is a great value. Good wifi on front porch in front of office and in a few rooms adjacent to the office.

This is a very affordable, no frills motel. There is no refrigerator or wi fi but the rooms are clean and large and the location is unbeatable. You sit on your deck and have a million dollar view of the ocean. We have been staying here for years and are never disappointed.

Room Tip: second floor in the far east motel

Bucket list adventure: eat a lobster roll while IN Maine. Family staying 1 mile down the road. Perfect location for us. Stayed 3 nights in waterfront hotel in room 88. 2nd floor, end unit. No remodel, room frozen in past, BUT at 79.00 DBL occupancy it is GREAT. Reservation system is archaic but 79.00 a night, I didn't care. Far from everything and can't walk anywhere as the road has no safe sidewalk but at 79.00 a night, I don't care! I would book the same room again. Water was 50 feet from deck of the room when the tide was in. Avacado green tub but it was 79.00 a night. Great value. No mints on the pillow, no toiletries, paper thin walls but 79.00 a night! Our family was close by so it worked out perfectly for us. When we left we paid over $200 a night to stay at the Park Plaza in Boston and didn't have the view and the sirens and traffic drove me crazy. To each his own.
