Quaint, rooms over water. Rooms kind of small but other than to sleep for a couple of nights it was fine. Easy walk to most of the village. Used as starting point to see Maine coast and have fresh lobsters. The owners were very cordial and helpful in pointing out things to do from the inn each day.

Stayed: October 2013, traveled as a couple

Kurt at the desk was wonderful. I was traveling alone and had injured my knee. He gave me a great room with a view of the harbor and easy access. Easy check in, convenient parking, fabulous view. The whole experience was perfect!

This was by far our most memorable town in New England. We had a beautiful view of the harbor and great food at the Tugboat Restaurant. The Maritime Museum in Bath was about 30 minutes from Boothbay. We spent 2 days at the museum and still have time for a harbor cruise and dinner at the Tugboat Inn.

Room Tip: There are no elevators so if handicap access is on the lobby floor.

This is our 10 trip to the Tugboat Inn. There is no place in Boothbay Harbor with better views. Recommend you choose a room on the Wharf's with there incredible views. the balcony are breath-taking. Since everything is within walking distance, you can park your car and walk every where. The Tug Boat Restaurant is very good as is all the local restaurants. Also, the check in and check out was effortless. The front desk people are friendly and efficient. Can't recommend this place enough!

This is our second trip to the Tugboat Inn. Because of its' shorefront location, views from most of the rooms are excellent. Each room comes with a coffee maker and fridge. Most rooms have a deck overlooking the bay. Rooms are decorated comfortably and without a lot of extra fanfare.
Morning breakfast is good with a selection of cereal, muffins, juice, coffee, and waffles.
Front desk personnel are cheerful, polite, and very helpful.
A drawback in the busy season is parking. Due to the number of guests, onsite restaurant, and marina, available parking spaces are at a premium.
Overall, the visit is well worth it.

There is no place in Boothbay Harbor with better views. Recommend if you choose the Tugboat Inn that you select a room on the Wharf. We always take the top, end unit, and the views from the room and from the balcony are breath-taking. Since everything is within walking distance, you can park your car and walk every where. We ate in the hotel restaurant and it was good. Also, the check in and check out was effortless. The front desk people are friendly and efficient. Can't recommend this place enough!!!!!!

Room Tip: Select a room on the second floor of the Wharf for the best views and most privacy.

On the water within walking distance to down town. On site easy parking. Very enjoyable. The cost of the room in the summer season was expected and if you want a getaway it's well worth it. We consider this trip a tank away seeing we are from New Hampshire. Also the food was great at the tugboat plus plenty of choices down town.
