Have stayed here once before. Room was much nicer that time. Rooms on the wharf need major upgrading. The location is perfect. The restaurant was wonderful and the service terrific. Only reason I did not rate higher was the rooms being very old, cramped and outdated. Love the idea of a coupon for getting two local beers in the tavern.... More

One of our favorite places, rooms have a great view of the marina and the harbor and beautiful church on the other side of the harbor. The attached restaurant is pretty good, but with so many restaurants to choose from, it is hard to compare.

We have stayed here once before but must say once again what a gem this property is. The rooms are clean - well appointed - the breakfast is vastly improved and the staff with Pamela keeping it well stocked and tidy adding a friendly word and smile to your morning. The front desk clerk Kurt (I hope I got that... More

The full breakfast included with the room was fabulous. Buffet style, but all you could want and excellent quality of food. All served in a bright sunny room overlooking the water. Also very much enjoyed the piano player at the onsite pub: he was very entertaining. The parking spot was more valuable than I would have realized: space is really... More

Enjoyed a great traditional Maine Lobster dinner, it was cooked to perfection. Restaurant has a fantastic view of the harbor watching boats go in and out perfect way to spend a evening. Service was excellent. As a restaurant that caters to the tourist trade it far exceeded expectation. Would definitely visit again.

This is our 4th time at the Tug Boat Inn and really love it there but this time I got a very small room. It had a great view but wishing they had told us when we reserved it that it was so small. Other than that everything else was great as usual !

We stayed for two days and had the suite which is a separate building from the Inn and it was very private and nice. Private balcony and very quiet. We enjoyed the stay it has a full kitchen, living room and king bed. It probably wasn't as clean as it could be but its rustic and that is by design.... More

Quite comfortable inn, located within easy walking distance of all that Boothbay Harbor has to offer, shops, restaurants and most important ferry docks. Cordial, helpful staff, allowed us to check in early in a room over the water with a commanding view of the harbor.

Great location with wonderful harbor views and steps away from cruises, shopping and the heart of town. Free breakfast with hot and cold items. Great food at restaurant, also with amazing water views and attentive and friendly servers. From check in until check out, all staff were cheerful, friendly and helpful and room was comfortable and well appointed. Our room... More
