This hotel has a nice view from the restaurant/bar and some rooms. The standard room has NO view and is tucked away by the road. Our room was in the main building so we had access to the veranda that overlooks the harbor. The room itself--- purely generic room. Motel 6 has it beat. The bathroom door sticks, the bathroom...

One of the best hotel lobbies anywhere, with many model ships and artifacts from the sea. The hotel restaurant was awesome with a great breakfast included and dinner with popovers that were out of this world. A great place to stay only a footbridge away from the hubbub of Boothbay Harbor. I will definitely stay at Rocktide again.

Everything went smooth during checkin, the rooms were nicely renovated and had a good view. The downside was how much sound seemed to travel through the door. We could hear everyone coming and going. Location was very good. Close to the foot bridge to get into downtown or walk down the street to other restaurants. Breakfast was basically identical everyday...

The Rocktide Inn is truly a gem and should be explored. Wonderful inviting staff. The rooms are aged but for the price you shouldn't complain. The morning breakfast is delicious and very filling. You can't beat the sunrise view of the harbor while dining. The inn is perfectly located for shopping and dining. I have visited and stayed in many...

Thisw is a great location, on the water, near a walkway over the harbor to the town and many businesses. Good view of harbor with boats coming and going. Clean, neat rooms. No ref. or MV. Good food in restaurant. We are there at least once a year.

My husband and I on the spur of the moment... ran away!! We called to make reservations after researching on line. The desk clerk quoted a different price than what was on line. I told him what was listed on their site, and he said he did have a room at that price. It wasn't the one I thought, but...

We enjoyed our stay and we're especially pleased with the location. The footbridge access to all restaurants and shopping was perfect. And being right on the water gave us wonderful sunsets. We were lucky in the weather that week, so it topped off a great week.

This was our 3rd annual trip to Boothbay Harbor and each time we have stayed at The Rocktide Inn. The front desk staff is very accommodating and efficient in getting our group of 30 - 40 people checked in quickly. The rooms are very clean and comfortable, we look forward to our return each year.

We had a Deluxe water view room with a private balcony. Drinks and appetizers on the deck, dinner inside. Did I say the food was Great? Staff...
