Pros: - Good location, easy walk to shops & restaurants - Clean Cons: - Run-down, everything shows the age of the place - Thin walls, light sleepers should pack earplugs - God-awful, cheap pillows - Uncomfortable, hard beds - Tiny bathroom - Front desk service was very slow - Extremely slow wifi, don't even bother

We have stayed at Rocktide for many years and this year found that it had slipped a bit with respect to the dining room food and service. We had no quarrel with the room. It was very clean and was made up promptly each day by a most accommodating member of the staff. The Inn's location is its strong point... More

We took a family trip to Boothbay Harbor. The Inn was adequate although our rooms were run down. The screen door on one fell off every time we opened it. The rooms needed paint and renovation. However the location of the Inn is great and the water views lovely. The dining experience was unbelievably bad. The breakfast was nearly inedible.... More

Upon arrival, the inn was clean and welcoming. We checked in and made it to our room without issue. The room was adequate, moderately clean but nothing special. The location of the patio for sunsets is idea. The drinks are stiff , especially the Rocktide Inquisition. A one man band, Benny & The Deck, graced the steel drums for our... More

We booked this hotel a week or so before we left for our trip so all the rooms with the excellent views were booked. With that said the room was clean and comfortable. My only complaint was that we had three adults in our room and only two bath towels every day we were there. I didn't notice a phone... More

Our nineth time. The room was very comfortable, the bed very comfortable, and we did not hear neighbors. The setting is so beautiful and comfortable that it is our second home. The food is so good that we ended up eating all of our meals there. Arden the bar tender is super. We have a reservation for next year.

The Rock Tide in has to be one of the most poorly designed places I have ever stayed in! There is a cluster of buildings with stairs going everywhere! I was with a group of Senior Citizens, and we had all been informed that we would have first-floor rooms. I was told by a man who met our bus that... More

This is the place to stay In Boothbay Harbor. When we arrived they had messed up our reservations (I think they were looking at a July calendar instead of August) They quickly straightened it out and gave us Water View Suites for the 1st night. Lovely rooms, totally renovated and HUGE!! The next day they moved us to the Superior... More

Stayed at Rocktide for two nights. The room was excellent. Easy walking access to downtown area. Only negative was powdered creamer with the coffee. The free breakfast was valued correctly. Went to Mama D's the second morning.
