This is an inn my husband and I have been to before. It is so much bigger now with more choices in rooms and package deals. The restaurant is bigger and they now have a lounge. It is in the middle of the harbor area so you are only minutes away from whatever you want to do. There is so... More

As always it was a wonderful experience, room was great, what a view! The Staff was very nice and very accommodating, I refer all my friends to them! This trip my friends had never stayed there, they thoroughly enjoyed it! I'll be back next April!

A superb hotel, located in the village centre on the harbourside. An excellent restaurant with delicious food (fresh lobster!) and close to all amenities. Very friendly and helpful staff. Continental breakfast included. Probably the best hotel on our tour of New England!

Spouse and I stayed here for one night during our travels. The Inn is located directly on the harbor, with nice views of the harbor and boats. The rooms are exceptionally small, but well appointed. Breakfast is provided, albeit at a separate hotel about a five minute walk away. The views of the harbor during breakfast were spectacular. All in... More

Centrally located and beautiful view from wrap around deck, and watching sunset in west over mountains spectacular. The church across harbor beautiful. The rooms are clean but way out of date. Beds could be more comfortable. Smell a little musty. Hotel staff was vey nice and helpful.

We returned to the Tugboat Inn to relive our honeymoon 30 years ago. Either my memory was off or things have changed. Location was primo, after that it was downhill. The room is adequate but it is in dire need of updating and cleaning. Thankfully we didn't spend much time in the room. Breakfast was served at the sister location... More

This hotel is in the middle of all harborside activities. We parked the car and walked everywhere we wanted to go. The weather was the most perfect of the year. We had our windows open all the time. Activities around us kept us energized. Breakfast was served at Fisherman's Wharf, a sister property almost next door. Views and food were... More

CONS: Room made me glad I am nearsighted: what I couldn't see was probably for the best. Example: a fair amount of dust at edges of carpet all around where vacuum presumably doesn't reach [ever?]. Bath was sketchy. Ex: not my hair on floor; shower stall cleaned with lick and a promise. Restaurant was utterly mediocre. Bed was comfortable, but... More

Comfortable, clean, good location. Breakfast arrangements provided us a lovely breakfast at a location just a short walk away. We ate at the Tugboat restaurant for lunch and it was delicious! The Tugboat Inn provided us with a lovely view of the harbor and was in a good location to explore the quaint town of Boothbay Harbor and was conveniently... More

The tugboat inn is excellently located with a view of the harbor and a marina. Since the inn also runs the marina, the location is a bit busy. The restaurant, which is partly located in real old tugboat is very good. Our room was clean and comfortable.
