Tripadvisor did not let me down--Cap'n Fish's is certainly a find! This is a motel with a view in a great location. The rooms are clean, the bathroom had a full-sized tub, and there were chairs provided to sit out on the walkway area (that functioned kind of like a balcony, but with occasional people walking by.) The woman who checked us in could not have been nicer, the layout is great--the way the building is set up, almost every room has a view of the harbor--and did I mention that the price is very reasonable?
My husband and I recently stayed at a resort hotel with an Italian fishing village theme (in Orlando--I'm sure you can figure out where) and loved it. But as we sat out on the walkway at Cap'n Fish's, my husband remarked 'I can't believe we thought ___ was beautiful. THIS is the real thing!'
As for the location, it can't be beat. Yes, it is across the harbor from 'all the action'. But first, it is maybe a ten minute walk away (if you walk slowly) and second, why would you want to STAY in the action? This is a quiet retreat away from the touristy shops. Additionally, given the state of disrepair of the one 'big' hotel that's 'right in the middle of it all', I'd take Cap'n Fish's any time! Oh and did I mention it is right next door to THE BEST lobster shack we enjoyed during our month-long Maine and Maritimes road trip?
