Lynn and I and friends recently had dinner at the Tugboat Inn, our final night in Boothbay Harbor. We shared the Seafood Fettuccini which included large chunks of lobster, 4 huge shrimp and 4 huge scallops. This was a huge entree...great to share. All of the seafood was exceptional. We also shared an equally large Caesar Salad. Lynn thought that...

I had eaten at The Tugboat restaurant before, and enjoyed being able to look out to the mouth of Boothbay Harbor from its snug but light-filled dining room. This past weekend I visited BBH for a funeral, and decided I needed to wake up in a place where I could look out over the water. It was great. My room...

Nice room. Clean, spacious and had a great view of the boats and water. Disliked that the TV was on a stand and not the wall. Had to keep looking down. Continental breakfast was good. Many options with great service and perfect view of the harbor. Talked with other guests.

Spent several nights at the Tugboat inn . Clean, beds comfortable, bathrooms clean, plenty of very hot water. View of the harbor , and balcony chairs enjoyed. Easy access, ample parking. Downtown a stroll away.

Ate lunch. Had a beautiful view of harbor, but service was slow for a half empty restaurant. Food was adequate but the price was a bit steep for what we got. So considering the view would recommend a lite lunch and enjoy what you get

First off – great view, overlooking harbor. Super service – quick & efficient, especially accommodating for the 5 year old and her desire for plain pasta with butter … they...

Room on the first floor was very spacious, beds were very comfortable. Beautiful view of the harbor. Being there in April helped avoid the crowds. Right in downtown so everything is within walking distance.

Very good hotel in a picturesque setting. The rooms were very clean, however the decor could do with a facelift. The bathroom was fairly spacious with plenty of towels. Breakfast in the Tugboat was nice, eggs, bacon, pastries, muffins good coffee and fruit juices. The Harbour view from all blocks of the hotel was awesome. Plenty restaurants within walking distance....

Where to start??!! My wife and I visited Boothbay Harbor in November for the Festival of Lights at the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens. A beautiful sight to see, indeed! The Tugboat Inn had a great rate so we decided to stay overnight instead of making the 3 hour trip home. What a great decision! Our room was clean, updated, and...

So glad to be able to spend a midcoast New Years Eve this year. The rooms have a spectacular view of the harbor and are conveniently located in downtown Boothbay. Friendly staff made sure all guests were aware of what was open and all the special things happening for New Year.
