We stayed in a waterfront view room on the upper floor and the hotel deserves good reviews: the view is fantastic and the room was very clean, large and it seemed to be recently renovated. The location is perfect because it's near Boothbay Harbor and you can visit the whole region easily and when you return at the hotel it's...

My wife and I stayed at Ocean Gate for five days the first week of July, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It was our first trip to Maine, and the place was perfect for us. Although we didn't fully utilize all of the amenities available, we did enjoy the Wednesday night lobster bake, and the whale sight seeing excursion Josh...

Overall: nice and worth the money. The interiors aren't new, but a clean and comfortable rustic. Pros: Location, unsurpassed views. Helpful staff (e.g. a broken deck lounge chair was replaced quickly and without question). Nice pool; good breakfast (nothing to write home about, but good enough). Kid friendly in a relaxed, laid-back-Maine sorta way. Appropriate since Maine (thankfully) doesn't "do"...

This hotel was a great get-away in Maine. The rooms were clean, comfortable, and reasonably priced. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, especially Josh at the front desk. We enjoyed the amenities including the canoes, kayaks, pool, and tennis/basketball court. It was nice to stay in a place that was an easy drive into Booth Bay Harbor, but a...

Beautiful location and nicely priced but a little bit of a drive from Boothbay Harbor. We didn't spend a lot of time on location but wish we would have had a little more time to explore the grounds. Extremely friendly staff. Rooms were very clean and we had a nice view from our balcony - our room was in the...

We stayed here while attending a wedding at the nearby Spruce Point Inn. I can add little to the positive comments of other list members below, except to emphasize that this is not the Spruce Point Inn (and we're glad it is not). We were quoted around $400 per night at the SPI. Yes, the Ocean Gate is evolving, and...

We stayed 2 nights at Ocean Gate in connection with a 3 week roadtrip in New England. It is at great location - what a fantastic view from the room over the bay. The room was clean and service was in top. The resort has a pool and minigolf and free of charge we used the kanoes to sail into...
