Guest reviews

  • Older travelers

    Close to everything

    Needs updating and too much money for the dated decor

  • Group of friends

    View of Harbor. Breakfast was great.

    No one informed us that the room was next to the lounge and that noise would travel to our room. If we had know, we would have asked for a room on the other side of the hotel.I Would only recommend hotel by telling people about the lounge noise and to ask for a romm away from that area.

  • Older travelers

    Central location - easy walking distance to Booth Bay Harbor shops and restaurants. Right on the water. Central location to explore wider area.

  • Older travelers

    Excellent location (convenient to downtown). Good-sized room, comfortable beds, great shower head. Did not take advantage of other amenities.

    Price, while competitive with alternatives in the area, did not represent "good value."

  • Family with children

    Location and views

    Restaurant is completely outdated, should be gutted and replaced. Stayed in room 503, can't sit on deck because ac unit blows hot air on you. Can't close shades at night because they block ac in room. You can not shut off outside light. So to use the air-conditioning you can't sit on deck, have to leave shades open all night with room lit up from outdoor light. Really not worth 180 per night.

  • Older travelers

    Nice to be on the water and within walking distance from the local shops, etc.

    Stayed on the first floor with no window to the outside other than at the walkway to all the doors on that unit's firs floor. Could not enjoy the view because of no privacy. Would have been ok if had been on the second floor. They should never give a first floor room if higher floors are available.

  • Couple

    Our room was on the front corner and we had a panoramic view of the harbor. That alone would make this a place to stay again.

    The bed was very uncomfortable.

  • Older travelers

    Being with my Husband, and view of the water

  • Older travelers

    Position on the harbor front in the town

  • Older travelers

    Our stay was off season so some of the attractions were closed but for a quiet getaway it was ideal. I would recomend highly staying here

  • Older travelers

    It is an error in my check out bill. I stayed 2 nights .Billed for deposit and 2 nights. I will call the Tugboat Inn.

  • Older travelers

    Clean, quiet and convenient! Not luxurious, but great views and staff. Walk to a dozen restaurants. Enjoyed our stay.

  • Older travelers

    The location if fabulous and the staff are wonderful.

    Though the room was clean, the inn/rooms themselves need updating which would make it look clean also. This would not stop me from going there again.

  • Older travelers

    Debbie was great and food was good . Great cross section of fun guests

    You had it rain for most of are time there. Not nice

  • Family with children

    The kindness and attentiveness of the staff exceeded my expectations as did the picturesque water view.
