Liked: Staff & service, room comfort
Quiet and private
East Boothbay is not touristy at all. Very quiet and private. We really like this place, it's the third time we've been here. We're really happy that they were even open. We realize it's been crazy-terrible being in this business due to the pandemic, so please don't think of this as a bad criticism. Our only complaint is that the carpet in our room was filthy. We had to seriously scrub our feet after walking in the room from the bed to the bathroom. The staff really tried to offer a decent, small breakfast, and we appreciated that. We'll stay here again, just hope that the carpets have been cleaned.
