Reviewed 7 June 2014

We selected this motel on the spot during an overnight impromptu stay in Boothbay Harbor mourn room was right on the water with water views on two sides. A very clean and comfortable ironman helpful staff. Would be happy to recommend this motel.

Room Tip: When booking check which way your view is. You want to be looking at the outer harbor.

An amazing stay at The Tugboat Inn. Upon check in Kurt was very prompt, knowledgeable and acomodating. The room was spotless (kudos to the HK staff) with a wonderful view of Boothbay Harbor. The deluxe continental continental breakfast had plenty of options and very fresh. If you are able to visit Boothbay at this time of year you will enjoy fine weather without the crowds. A lovely fishing town with a lot of character.

We got a room with private balcony on the second floor of the main building. Privacy and views! Such a pleasure to sit outside in the morning sun reading a book or newspaper. Looks right out at all the yachts in the harbor getting ready for a days adventure to sea. Boothbay Harbor is a pleasant but busy tourist trap with stores and restaurants. So its special to sit quietly outside again at the end of the day watching the sun set over the water.

Room Tip: Get a 2nd or 3rd floor room with private balcony.

Our room was spotless and the bed extremely comfortable. Staff are helpful and friendly. If only the weather had not been so miserable during our brief stay, this would have been a perfect mini-break.

This was our third time staying at the Inn. We can honestly say it is one of the nicest, cleanest, friendliest most accommodating places we have stayed. The view from our room was fabulous. I would recommend this Inn to anyone.

We checked in on Monday night with no reservation. We had called and the receptionist was on another line and promised to call right back. After a few minutes of waiting, we drove on down to the hotel in hopes of getting a room Front desk was apologetic and gave us a manager's discount because she wasn't able to return the call! She was so helpful in getting us a room with two fabulous views! We even lucked out on the arrival of home-made cookies someone had just delivered. Our part of the hotel was built on piers over the water. We could sit in bed and look out over the harbor. The room was spotless, clean crisp sheets and a comfortable bed. Our deck was covered which was nice since there were a few sprinkles that week. We loved it so much was asked to spend a second night. We were fortunate that it was a few days before Memorial Day weekend before the crowds. I would tell you the room number but I don't want to have it "taken" when we return.lol The provided breakfast was down the street at another hotel. Odd, but tasty, with eggs, sausage, fruit, pastries, etc. and a great harbour view. Definitely a place we will return to!!
