We spent 2 nights at the Tugboat Inn in July 2014. I booked online & chose a room in the section that is built onto a pier. It was truly unique. There was a small deck to sit on with the water below & all around. It's an older property, but the rooms were efficient & CLEAN! The walk to... More

Booked with the Tugboat Inn because they had a room available. We had an end room looking out over the water. We had a fantastic view of the harbor and the boats. Stayed for 10 days, exploring the area. We enjoyed the food at the Tugboat Inn. We took a harbor cruise on which we were given great information. Did... More

Booked the Tugboat Inn on the advice of a friend who had stayed here before, but it was likely a mid-week stay. The location is great and the attached restaurant is very good. Unfortunately, they have live entertainment Fri & Sat nights and the sound reverberates up the walls. I can here the muffled melody of someone singing happy birthday... More

We booked a package with the Tugboat Inn. We were with my parents who are in their 80s. We were assured that we would have rooms close together, but we were as far apart as we could possibly be. Breakfast was not at the hotel, we had to walk down the street to the Fisherman's Wharf Inn. Breakfast was not... More

Last weekend we went to Boothbay without accommodation arranged and the super nice-cordial-professional lady from Jamaica, Caseta, welcomed us to the Inn and offered us a great room to spend the night. Great deal for a walk in. The room was clean, big enough for us with 2 kids and definitely with the best view of the harbor. The breakfast... More

Worthy of the price with views and deck. Everything clean and well cared for. However, no one was on staff in the evening to break up a seriously loud partying crowd in the parking lot, so I couldn't sleep if I wanted to.

The Tugboat is a perfect place to stay in Boothbay Harbor! The view from our room was amazing, right on the water! Room was a little on he small side, but very clean. The full breakfast included at another location was great too! Will return again and again!

Nice spot, right on the water, close to everything. We were only there for one night, but in that time the staff were helpful, the room was clean, the view was awesome. Would highly recommend this spot for any visitors to Boothbay.
