  • Not A Stay Worthy of A Celebrated Resort--Expensive and Disappointing

    We have come to Spruce Point Inn to enjoy its location for over a decade, except in 2011. In 2012, we found seasoned staff had vanished--along with the personal, consistent hospitality we had known. Our tennis reservations had been made during a local league tournament--twice! When dining, we had been served raw, uncooked chicken, tasteless lobster dishes, unseasoned seafood, cold breakfast buffet, and chaotic service from young, inexperienced staff. The wise sommelier from the past has been replaced by an incompetent host--with no hospitality experience. Gone are the enjoyable resort standards of excellence, replaced with untrained, inexperienced, and confrontational staff. This is not a celebrated resort during peak season: this is expensive and disappointing. We passed on purchasing the SPI decals for sale at reception.

    We stayed at the Spruce Point Inn for a family function. The main building of the resort is located on a beautiful point facing the harbor with other buildings and cabins throughout the area to stay. If you do not stay in the main area, you will not have a view of the ocean - just beware. We participated in a few of the offerings on site- the yoga class was fun, and the massage was wonderful! They offer kayaking and bikes, and there are 2 pools located on the grounds. The decor/items in the house where we stayed could use a little updating, but it was still cozy and felt very "cabiney." We ate breakfast in the main restaurant and had wonderful lobster benedict and blueberry pancakes. I recommend the pancakes, they were delicious!!! We attempted to have dinner one evening, but had trouble being served. My group of 6 (4 adults, 2 children) sat at our table for 30 minutes and finally got up and left after being ignored by the staff around us. The rest of the family that remained in the restaurant also had issues getting correct orders, or their meals with the rest of the group at each table. The restaurant was not full, but it seemed like the wait staff was completely slammed. I would recommend staying here for the views and activities, but it might be worth eating in one of the many restaurants offered at Boothbay Harbor if you're hungry for dinner!

    It is a very fine inn with a large setting. Excellent pools, landscaping and location on the water. I have not stayed in the main inn but I have been in most of the suites and they are excellent. Cleaning services are good except in the Ocean Houses. Hotel services is okay but somewhat inexperienced due to summer hires from abroad. Moderately expensive but worth it to me -- I need the peace and quiet. Not too far from town. Probably the nicest place in the region in terms of real estate and room quality.

  • OK hotel; good (not great) deal

    PLUS: The newly renovated rooms use a very small space ingeniously; good storage and they're clean and up-to-date (so are bathrooms). Location can't be beat, roof deck is lovely.MINUS: Beds may be too short for anyone over 5'9""; staff friendly but often harried; rooms have CD players/clock radios which no one knows how to work (no manuals) so they go off - loudly - at all hours and can be heard throughout entire floor. (So, the rooms are far from soundproof - not for honeymooners!) Pickwick was OK - and cheaper - before renovations.
