Fantastic view, outdated rooms

This was our first year staying in Boothbay and will definetly make a return trip. The hotel was nice, rooms a bit outdated but clean, and the view fantastic. I strongly suggest going into the town of Boothbay. The shops are amazing, food fantastic, and view spectacular. Lots to do down there as welll and short drive from Smugglers Cove.

Disappointment

Was stuck back in a "vintage" building with "vintage" plumbing...room was dirty and old. Killed 4 spiders in bathroom alone. Room had an odor to it...think the carpeting really needed cleaning. Was a huge disappointment. View that was advertised of overlooking a bay we could not see from room as we were angled off from view that was obscured by trees and up a hill. Encouraged to park in gravel parking area behind building. Would not recommend this one..

The Lobster Dock in Boothbay Harbor was excellent!! Just remember to order at the window before finding seats...very casual environment, but food was great, especially the crab cakes!

Good enough

The room was clean and quiet but very small and the only amenities were soap and a shampoo/conditioner. The hotel needs some renovations and painting but the view is lovely and the staff (Zack) was wonderful. The one thing that we wished was that the restaurant opened earlier than 8:00.

Our trip was packed with personal commitments. We did shop one day, however, and I would definitely recommend visiting the many galleries, in particular "Ocean Point Woodturning Wooden Gallery in East Boothbay.

Best weekend away in years

When we arrived, our room wasn't as close to the Ocean as anticipated. We asked at the desk for a room closer to the Ocean and within minutes,we were accomodated. The staff was very polite and professional at all times. The room was clean and very comfortable, and the view was unforgettable.The pool was clean and enjoyable. We will definately return to Smugglers Inn.

Outdated but clean

The setting was lovely and the best thing about the hotel. However, we were disappointed as soon as we walked into our room. It was dark because of fake dark wood panelling, dull blue carpeting and dark bedspreads. The bathroom was clean but had old, colonial blue fixtures. Breakfast was ordinary. While it was perfectly acceptable, we wouldn't stay here again.

Great location, nice view.

My boyfriend and I enjoyed this location so much we came back. However finding a place to stay is hit or miss, and prices are high for what you get. This Inn is more like a motel. The room was not what was advertised when I booked it, OLD and drab with musty odor from mold in bathroom. Needless to say, I woke at two AM with reaction and had to sleep in our car. Next morning went to office where a young lady sympathetic to my plight and offered a choice of two other rooms in a different building, which were remodeled; just what was advertised. We think we were put in the wrong room but they didn't offer to adjust our bill just that we wouldn't be charged extra. I slept comfortable for the remainder of our stay.

So Loud.

My girlfriend and I stayed here while in town for a wedding. The staff was good and as helpful as you'd want. The room was very moldy smelling and there was also a hint of urine. If only this had been the biggest problem... Starting very early in the morning, as families left, it could not have been more noisy. We could hear the people in the room above us getting ready and it sounded as though they were about to come through the ceiling. As people leave the hotel, they are walking by your room on a deck type surface and every step is nearly deafening. it was impossible to sleep past 7am which was not what I was looking for after a rough evening at a wedding.
