“A good place to stay”
Reviewed 14 September 2011

Well located on the faterfront, very affordable, clean, quiet, spacious rooms. Continental breakfast is so,so (cereals, juices,coffee and DONUTS! But, considering the price you pay for your room, you can go out to eat breakfast.

Room Tip: Room 45 with a king size bed and the sun settingin your window

After spending the last 12 Labor Day week ends here..we won't return. Don't go unless you like loud and obnoxious other guests and management who could care less. We left a day earlier than planned and so did several other folks who, like us, lost sleep over the noise.

The scenery was beautiful, the room was immaculate, comfortable beds, and the staff was wonderful. This was a great bargain for the room cost and I would not hesitate to recommend this hotel, and look forward to staying there again on my next trip to Booth Bay.

Cap'n Fish's was very clean, had polite and informative people behind the desk, and had a nice continental breakfast. It was right on the water. Great to sit at night on the pier, watching the stars and the waves! Discount on whale watching boat tours-- we saw whales 5 times. Great view from the room of the harbor; very quiet at night.

We stayed two nights at this facility. The room was clean, but the beds were lumpy and sagged visibly in the middle. The continental breakfast consisted of two types of donuts and two types of cereal, with cranberry or orange juice. It seemed as though the hotel was pushing more for guests to visit the on-site restaurant for breakfast. On the plus side, the restaurant does make their own bread and it is divine! The wifi connection was sketchy, even using several different connections for the same hotel. All together the view was great (water front) but the amenities were what you would expect from your local motel 6.

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?

Room Tip: We stayed in room 25 and found the view to be PERFECT. It had one king bed.

Thank you for such a wonderful review. Just one correction...you must have stayed in room 35, as that has a king bed and a beautiful view! Room 25 is a standard room with two double beds.
Again, thank you. We'll look forward to your return visit!

Inn right on the water. Can sit and watch all the boats coming and going. Room was clean. Staff friendly and helpful. Has small restaurant on premsis for breakfast and lunch. They also provide for free coffee, cereal and donuts in the AM.Inn is close to shopping and other activities. If you book a boatride directly with them on there vessels you get a discount too. Will definately go there again.
