The Tugboat Inn in downtown Boothbay Harbor gets its name from the main building that is literally housed in a tugboat! The onsite restaurant is also located in the tugboat, offering lovely waterfront views as hotel guests and the public dine on fresh Maine lobster.
The hotel is divided into five buildings, which offer a total of 64 guestrooms equipped with mini-fridges, Keurig coffeemakers, free internet, and king or queen beds. Some rooms are pet-friendly.

My husband and I stayed here for our 51st anniversary trip. We are very pleased with our King room on the 2nd floor of the rooms over the pier. We have nothing but good things to say, The view over the marina has been great and the view from the restaurant at dinner, the 2 nights we ate there was amazing as well as at breakfast
(continental, free of charge) was gorgeous! The food we had in the dining room was great, great service too. The office staff was very welcoming and the room was re-supplied each day with fresh clean towels and a freshly made bed. The morning breakfast included fresh fruit, bagles, English, blueberry muffins, cereal, yogurt, fresh coffee, Danish, tea, decaf, all the usual continental offerings.
And if you do, you will be disappointed. But if you wanted to surround yourself with the essense of this amazing state, then make your reservation soon. The room is clean. Linens are fresh. TV is huge. But why would you watch when you have the beautiful marina to look at.
We arrived too late for the sunset, but soon enough to enjoy a delightful dinner at the property restaurant. The package is just right. We would stay here again.
