Tugboat inn was clean, fairly inexpensive, located right over the water, non-smoking and most importantly close to everything! They had the restaurant decorated for the Christmas Holiday season. We were checked in easily and just had to leave the keys in the room when we left. We could walk to everything in Boothbay Harbor. Very convenient.
