Low key, great service, not fancy but many things to do. Breakfast served by a very pleasant man with a twinkle in his eye made it taste pretty good. Setting on open calm harbor beautiful and plenty to do from pool to miniature golf to kayaks and more.

This was our first trip to Maine and staying at the Ocean Gate Resort really made the trip. This is a wonder place to stay. They really thought of everything here. Great breakfast, mini golf, swimming pool, ping pong, canoes, kayaking, basketball, tennis, horseshoes, and they even have laundry available. The food hall offers indoor and open air seating on two decks. The grounds here are very well kept and the view from the room is just stunning. The staff is great and very friendly! The one con that I’ll give this place is that they could have done a better job with cleaning the room after the last guest. The room coffee maker had a leftover pod in it that was moldy. There were cobwebs in the corners and food crumbs around the refrigerator cabinet. There was even a sock along the bed frame. Maybe our room was just the one off when it came to cleanliness, but it could have been cleaner. Overall, I would still recommend this place as a great little getaway for anyone looking to relax just enjoy nature.

first, book direct with the resort and you will not have to pay a $25.00 per day resort fee. We were quite disappointed to start with but the resort kinda grew on us. This resort is for the younger, more adventerous group. We are retired and prefer a 3/4 star facility. breakfast is ok but so-so at best. Be aware, the mimosa's are $8,00 each extra. The room is clean but is short of furniture and a lot of what they represent. The bathroom is very, very tiny. No housekeeping available. No alarm clock. Coffee but no cups.

We spent six nights at the Ocean Gate and were very happy with our experience. The breakfast is included and cooked to order, and included a choice of eggs, pancakes, fruit and yogurt, bacon or sausage, toast, and assorted juices, teas, and coffee. The room was clean and adequate with a gorgeous view off the balcony. The room was kept up well but still unpretentious. The grounds and pool area were well maintained. The amenities were wonderful and included sea kayaks, canoes, paddleboards, ping pong, fire pits, mini-golf, and more. The staff were friendly too. This hotel was a fantastic value, would definitely recommend!.

Nice hotel in a fantastic location. Rooms are very clean and the staff friendly. The facility is older so keeping it in top top condition is a challenge. You can tell there have been investments made in recent years. Great spot for the kids with lots to do.
