Over the past few years, we have watched this property go down a very slippery slope. Although old, it used to be pretty clean, but this is not the case anymore. Between the flies and the absolutely filthy bathroom we have had enough. I really doubt the sheets were clean. But the last straw was when my husband pulled back the bedspread and a cockroach flew out. The management doesn't seem to care about much of anything as long as your credit card goes through. If they really cared, this property would not be in the state that it is. It is truly a shame. It is one of the most beautiful spots in Maine. It has truly pained me that it has fallen into such a state. We have stayed there every year for the past 10 years, so believe me -- I do know what I am talking about...

I've spent parts of vacations at the Ship Ahoy Motel many, many times over the past 25+ years... using it as a base to explore Mid-Coast Maine. The views are great, especially if you stay in the "Far East" unit.
Rates are exceptionally low for waterfront property.
TV reception is lousy, only 3 or 4 channels. Breakfast is not free and very limited in choice, but the view from that restaurant is outstanding, especially on a sunny morning. The rooms are not fancy but always seemed adequately clean to me, but, let's face it, it's not the Ritz.

Visited Boothbay Harbor area the end of August.Made the mistake of making a three night reservation in the neighboring town of Southport. Upon check in motel lobby had a very musty smell.Not a good first impression.We were not given the building near the water which we requested when making our reservation 4 months earlier.Room was very unclean and also had a bad odor. T.V. only had 4 channels and not good ones. There were no phones in room and not even a pay phone on premises for an emergency. No alarm clocks either. Spider webs on all outside lights next to the room doors. Every time we opened the door lots of moths flew in .The event of the night was killing moths. We also had no cell phone service in this remote part of Maine so a pay phone would have been nice in case of an emergency or if somebody from home needed to reach us. Upon check in I went straight to the owner to express my opinion of his motel. He did not seem to care and gave me a can of Lysol to spray the room with. He also handed me an ancient alarm clock which we needed to wake us up early the next morning so we could make a quick exit to a much nicer motel in Boothbay Harbor. Would not reccomend Ship Ahoy Motel
